Webinar: Cleaning Up After the Cloud Migration Party

 

This webinar, featuring Forrester Principal Analyst Lauren E. Nelson and Trent Fitz Solution Strategist at Zenoss, will discuss the pre-party and post-party requirements for facilitating a well executed cloud migration and the importance of having the right technologies in place to manage and support a hybrid environment.

Pre-Party Prep: Understand What You Have

Applications not built for the cloud often suffer from performance issues due to their monolithic architecture, which is unfit for horizontal scaling. Before beginning your cloud migration journey, it's important to understand how suitable each application is for a cloud environment.

Party with the Lights On

During a cloud migration, it's critical to ensure minimal service disruption. Proper care must be taken to manage the chaos among all IT systems and applications. It's important to understand the proper tools and processes for seamless cloud transitions.

The Clean-Up: Manage Your Hybrid World

For most enterprises, a cloud migration isn't like flipping a light switch. It is a journey, and one that usually ends with hybrid IT environments. It's extremely important to have the right technologies in place to manage that hybrid environment.

Webinar: NVMe and Flash - Make Your Storage Great Again!

 

NVMe and all-flash systems can solve any performance, floor space and energy problems.  At least this is the marketing message many vendors and analysts spread today - but actually, sounds too good to be true, right?

Like always in real life, there is no clear black or white, but some circumstances you should be aware of - especially if you intend to leverage these technologies.  

You may ask yourself: Do I need to rip and replace my existing storage? What is the best way to integrate both? What benefits do I receive?

Well, join this brief webinar with Datacore, which will also include a live demo and audience Q&A so you can get the most out of these technologies, and make your storage great again!

WHEN?  October 24, 2018 @ 1PM ET

You will discover:

  • How to integrate Flash over NVMe in real life
  • How to benefit of some Flash/NVMe for your entire applications

 

On-Demand: Hyperconvergence 101 - Getting Started with #Hyperconvergence

 

While hyperconvergence aims to make the datacenter more efficient, hyperconvergence can also be confusing at times, due to the numerous forms of HCI, the different approaches, and the varying levels of efficiency that can be gained.

In this educational event, DataCore will cover what hyperconvergence really is, how it works from install to administration, and how it can help your company.

Hear from hyperconvergence expert Steve Hunt of DataCore and moderator and vExpert, David Davis to get all your HCI questions answered!

Watch this on-demand webinar at your own pace, on your own time.

 

Webinar: Parallels RAS & AppsAnywhere

 

Parallels RAS & AppsAnywhere integration enables education organizations to seamlessly deliver Windows applications to non-windows devices at an affordable cost.

Parallels RAS is an alternative to traditional and expensive VDI and desktop virtualization tools, and using remote desktop technology, IT can deliver all their Windows apps to any device, on and off campus.  And by integrating with AppsAnywhere, students and staff have only one location to go to for all their apps, regardless of the device they're using.  

WHEN?  October 17th, 2018 - 10:00 AM PDT 

Some of the topics that will be covered in this upcoming live Webinar include:

  1. Empower BYOD and utilize any device to make educational resources readily available to students, educators, and staff, whatever platform they wish to work from.
  2. Easy to deploy VDI with no need for expensive add-ons (e.g. reporting engine, printer redirection, ADC and load balancing)
  3. Protect student and staff data with encryption protocols and advances filtering.
  4. Enable distance learning by delivering educational applications to any device, anywhere, anytime.

How to Avoid Disasters via Software-Defined Storage Replication & Site Recovery

 

Shifting weather patterns across the globe force us to re-evaluate data protection practices in locations we once thought immune from hurricanes, flooding and other natural disasters.

Offsite data replication combined with advanced site recovery methods should top your list.

In this webcast and live demo, you'll learn about:

  • Software-defined storage services that continuously replicate data, containers and virtual machine images over long distances
  • Differences between secondary sites you own or rent vs. virtual destinations in public Clouds
  • Techniques that help you test and fine tune recovery measures without disrupting production workloads
  • Transferring responsibilities to the remote site
  • Rapid restoration of normal operations at the primary facilities when conditions permit

Webinar: 451 Research - Key Trends in Machine Learning, AI and Cloud

 

Machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) aren't new - both are ideas that emerged in the 1950's. But after incubating for 50+ years, it's only in the past few that they have made unprecedented advances in capability, scalability and accessibility.  

Make sure to register and join Zenoss and Nancy Gohring, senior analyst at 451 Research, for a live 45-minute webinar Wednesday, Sept. 19, 11 a.m. CDT, where they will discuss key trends in machine learning and artificial intelligence, the impact of cloud computing on ML and AI and what it all means for IT Ops and DevOps teams.

They will dive into:

  • Digital transformation, "Fast IT," and the rampant risks
  • Trends for ML and AI and the impact they have on IT
  • Cloud computing and its implications for observability
  • Contextualizing all data for faster, safer IT

Register today to learn more about leveraging modern technologies to reduce the risk of digital transformation.

On-Demand Webinar: The Future of Backup Isn't Backup

Today's digital consumers demand an always-on level of service that backups simply cannot provide.  The recently announced Zerto IT Resilience Platform, that converges backup, disaster recovery, and cloud mobility solutions into a single, simple, scalable platform, is changing the way companies think about protecting their data.

Listen in as Steve Blow, Technology Evangelist, explains Zerto's vision for the future of backup and learn how continuous journal-based protection is disrupting legacy backup.

Can a single Virtual Volume (VVol) span different physical arrays/devices?

 

If you were to pose this question, "Can a single Virtual Volume (VVol) span different physical arrays/devices?" to your storage vendor or to VMware support today, you'd likely receive the following answer: "No. vSphere does not support this."

Nevertheless, with the VMware certified, universal vSphere APIs for Storage Awareness (VASA) provided from DataCore, you can easily achieve that with full VMware support and without VVol certified hardware today.  Use of local discs alone, or in combination with other storage arrays as part of the Virtual Volumes datastore, would even be sufficient.

Watch this on-demand webinar to discover:

  • How to setup such a solution in real life
  • How to implement auto-tiering across different arrays
