  • 10 minute "whiteboard" style video that explains what Quorum does and the unique value for mid-market organizations
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) places unique performance demands on storage. During the course of the day the I/O traffic changes from heavy read, to heavy write and then ends with a mixture of read and write requirements. This workload profile is so unique that many VDI planners end up selecting a dedicated storage solution for their VDI environment.

    Join Storage Switzerland and Fusion-io for the live webinar event "Avoid the Waste of a VDI-only Storage Solution”.

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    1. The challenges associated with deploying storage for VDI
    2. How current solutions attempt to solve these problems
    3. How to save money by supporting VDI and other application workloads on the same storage
  • Autonomic Software significantly expands the capabilities of McAfee ePO. Autonomic’s three suites are all integrated into ePO with no need for separate console, databases, and reports. They are “As McAfee As McAfee”!

    Join McAfee and its 2013 MVP Partner of the Year to learn how the integrated solution provides:
    • Increases Scalability – Delivery of patches to both large organizations and small-to-mid-sized organizations
    • Reduces Costs - Using Power & Patch Management Suites
    • Simplifies Complexity - Maintains a secure environment with minimal human intervention using EndPoint Suite
    • Easily Customizable Solutions – For unique requirements
  • SQL is a powerful language that you will learn to use to a greater extent in this talk! Join us to explore some of the less well-known features of SQL and see how they can help in some practical situations. We will also look at some common mistakes and misconceptions and discuss ways of avoiding them. Among the topics:
    - tricks with date and time values
    - use of common table expression and recursive queries
    - use of data change tables
    - use of nested tables
    - use of the MERGE statement
    - and more.

    Nick Ivanov is presenting this talk based on his consulting experience with many customers to maximize use of IBM DB2 and other products; move applications to DB2; and tune database and query performance.
  • As more and more companies look to take advantage of all of the benefits afforded with cloud-based infrastructures, the discussion often quickly turns to “How do we get there?” For some companies, this single migration question can create an insurmountable roadblock that either keeps them from moving to the cloud or severely delays their migration. Join Michael McCracken, HOSTING’s Director of Professional Services, as he explores different cloud migration strategies along with the benefits and risks associated with each of those strategies.
  • Join us for the live webinar on April 10th at 11:30AM ET - 8:30AM PT to discuss the importance of business class file sync, share and collaboration and why the storage team should lead the effort.

  • Join this webinar and learn why consistency is the hallmark of an effective, agile organisation. With thousands of moving parts, ensuring that every user, every system is being managed consistently is critical. This webinar will show you how a best practice IT systems management software effectively defines, manages, applies and enforces IT policies across groups of machines.

    A state-of-the art Policy Management system streamlines the process of creating, setting and remotely applying IT policies to groups of systems across a distributed organisation. Administrators need to be able to view all policies from a single dashboard, customise them and assign them based on organisation, group, machine type, platform or any dynamic view of machines to ensure all systems are in compliance. By automating management by policies and enforcement, administrators can then take immediate action to remediate any system that is not in compliance.
    Benefits of a modern Policy Management system are:

    • Ensure distributed systems are in compliance with IT policies or recurring services
    • Streamline the process of applying and updating policies to multiple machines based on organisation, group, department or dynamic view
    • Achieve greater confidence that distributed systems are secure and in compliance
    • Manage policy enforcement of multiple groups of machines, applying varying and nested policies depending on security risk, business use or service level
    • New machines can automatically inherit policy settings without any intervention
  • Protiviti has conducted the second-annual Executive Perspectives on Top Risks Survey. We obtained the views of more than 370 board members and C-suite executives about risks that are likely to affect their organisation in 2014.

    Join Managing Director, Mike Purvis and Director, Dirk Verwohlt for a discussion of the report findings.
  • Every application, email, web page and Internet connection relies on information encapsulated into a data packet that can be easily distributed across networks. These packets include information about the sender and receiver, as well as the actual contents, or payload. By manipulating pieces of the packet data, criminals can infiltrate networks, applications, data centers, and individual computers.
    How do you defend your network against advanced threats that manipulate data at the packet level? Join Steve Smith, Senior Technical Marketing Manager at McAfee for a revealing presentation on the current state of threat prevention. Find out why you should be using deep packet inspection (DPI) for protocol identification, normalization, and data stream-based inspection to detect and block threats, in both clear-text and encrypted connections. And stop Advanced Persistent Threats (ATP) that rely on packet manipulation to thwart most common firewall and IPS defenses.
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) places unique performance demands on storage. During the course of the day the I/O traffic changes from heavy read, to heavy write and then ends with a mixture of read and write requirements. This workload profile is so unique that many VDI planners end up selecting a dedicated storage solution for their VDI environment.

  • Top 5 Ways for IT to Improve Database Performance Apr 30 2014 5:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    The performance of databases often slows as data and business grows, users find new and demanding ways to leverage applications, and those applications mature and expand in functionality. Whenever a key database slows down, SQL or NoSQL, the business damage can be widespread and it usually becomes a high priority effort to remediate.

    At Taneja Group we’ve noted 5 major ways that IT operations can improve database performance, including a couple of quick and ready ideas that impose little risk or cost. In this 30 minute webcast, we'll look at why IT operations often gets the responsibility for database performance, and the IT-centric options they can pursue.

    Mike Matchett brings to Taneja Group over 20 years experience in managing and marketing IT datacenter solutions particularly at the nexus of performance, capacity and virtualization. Currently he is focused on IT optimization for virtualization and convergence across servers, storage and networks, especially to handle the requirements of mission-critical applications, Big Data analysis, and the next generation data center. Mike has a deep understanding of systems management, IT operations, and solutions marketing to help drive architecture, messaging, and positioning initiatives.
