  • Malware today is very different from just a few years ago. Traditional AV technology is no longer able to consistently and fully remediate or defend against today’s most advanced threats. New and emerging threats such as ransomware, social engineering driven attacks and micro variant financial threats are just some examples of difficult to remediate infections. This presentation will take a look at the malware landscape and explain why these tactics are so effective against traditional AV technology. We will examine three specific families of infections and highlight their tactics to evade detection and what issues occur with remediation. Lastly, we will talk about Webroot’s innovation and how our SecureAnywhere AV solution is capable of defending against, and remediating today’s most advanced threats.
  • Catch up with Dimension Data's Andy Lancaster at Cloud Expo Europe 2014 in this on-demand video.

    Discover what he's excited for this year in cloud computing, whether he'd use the Cloud if he was starting out today and more!
  • As your data center undergoes a transformation caused by exponential network growth, virtualization, SDN, and the growing need for more tools to monitor, secure, and analyze the network, you may find yourself missing a critical layer: visibility.

    Jim Frey, Vice President of Research & Network Management at Enterprise Management Associates, and Dave Reoch, Sr. Director of Data Center Solutions at Gigamon, will discuss the 3 essentials to maintain visibility during this transformation. Learn about:

    - Key changes and challenges with data center transformation
    - How these changes impact your visibility
    - What you can do today to stay ahead of the curve
  • In this 45-minute webinar, Patrick Flynn will make the case that the data center is the best and only place we can hope to meet the massive sustainability challenges confronting today’s enterprises and governments. Patrick will describe how data analysis holds the key to energy efficiency, business continuity and a new, better paradigm in performance measurement that will transform infrastructure and IT alike.

    Patrick Flynn holds an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management as well as a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. His work includes identifying, prioritizing and implementing a wide array of projects within IO’s operations and product platform. He is a Professional Engineer (HVAC) and LEED Accredited Professional.
  • The analysis profiles heavy electricity users within five different sectors, including manufacturing, data centers, hospitals, education, and small franchise. This briefing will also evaluate choices for energy management service.

    Why should you attend:
    - Learn about customer perception in deregulated states for purchasing electricity and energy management services
    - Identify key market trends
    - Review purchase criteria for selecting a provider
  • The metric, Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE), has been successful in improving energy efficiency of data centers, but it is not perfect. One challenge is that PUE does not account for the power distribution and cooling losses inside IT equipment. This is particularly problematic in the HPC (high performance computing) space where system suppliers are moving cooling and power subsystems into or out of the cluster.

    This presentation describes two new metrics: ITUE (IT-power usage effectiveness), similar to PUE but “inside” the IT and TUE (total-power usage effectiveness), which combines the two for a total efficiency picture addressing the shortcomings inherent in the PUE metric.
  • Most companies deploy virtual environments in order to get the most out of their hardware (maximize utilization). Traditional security was designed to be deployed in a one-to-one fashion, relying heavily on existing computing resources (CPU, RAM, Storage) and often taking full advantage of all resources available. In virtual environments with multiple machines and signature based protection, when a scan runs or signatures are updated (typically daily) and simultaneously, it has the potential to consume all resources available, creating what is called an AV storm. This presentation will explore the modern VM security landscape and the introduction of Agentless Security and associated efficacy.
  • Data Center Efficiency is part of the new reality for the Mission Critical world. This has been driven by the corporate mantra to reduce operating costs in an era driven by financial constraint and increased focus on cost-effectiveness and efficiency or sometimes the added social pressure to be more sustainable.

    Data Center Infrastructure Management “DCIM” is seen as critical to optimizing long term operational and energy efficiency. However, the first step is facing the challenges of installing proper monitoring of the electrical, mechanical systems, as well as the environmental parameters, in an operating data center.

    This presentation will explore the latest measurement technologies and methodologies (and their limitations) that can be considered for retrofit and new installations, as well as practical tips for installing the instrumentation and sensors that can be utilized for analyzing and improving a data center’s energy efficiency.
  • Join us for a discussion between Claus Moldt, former Global CIO at SalesForce.com, and David Roth, CEO of AppFirst. Learn best practices from two of the world’s leading organizations on how they’ve achieved web-scale IT.

    During this webinar, we’ll explore:
    - How the right breadth and granularity of metrics is required to successfully achieve and manage web-scale, and transform IT to a Service
    - Best practices established at companies like SalesForce.com and eBay
    - Strategies for sizing environments when migrating to virtual or cloud services
    - The benefits of an IT as a Service model
  • Key performance indicators (KPI) enable organizations to manage their factories, distribution centers, supply chain and other aspects of your business operations in a cost effective manner. This means having metrics that matter covering not only utilization of assets, material consumption and production output. In addition, this means having insight into defects, re-work, lost time due to delays or lost opportunity. IT Data Centers are Information Factories that also need to be monitored for different purposes as well as from various facets and context to have timely insight for effective decision-making. Monitoring ranges from physical facilities or the habitats for technology to the technology and tools that live there (servers, storage, networking, hardware, software) to deliver information services. This webinar looks at how to avoid flying blind gaining situational awareness and timely data center insight monitoring a key enabler for data center infrastructure management (DCIM). Topics that we will discuss include metrics that matter, service level objectives (SLOs), DCIM, PMDB, performance, availability (reliability, accessibility, and durability), capacity, energy and economics (PACEE), cloud, virtualization, sustainability among others.

    Key themes:
    •Everything is not the same in the data center or information factory
    •Metrics that matter from physical to virtual, cloud and where to get them
    •Facilities, energy and power, server, storage, networking and software
    •Do you know what your costs to deliver a given level of service are?
    •Sustainability for productivity and economics without the Green-washing
