    Webcast: You've spent months getting your app ready for the big launch and now it's go-time. Traffic begins hitting the site and within minutes it slows to a crawl; then goes up in flames. Users are leaving in droves and your brand name takes a beating across every social media outlet.

    It doesn't have to be this way.

    Join James Carra, Manager of Hosting Operations at Volkswagen Group of America, for a Live Webinar on January 15th and learn how they avoided these nightmares and confidently re-launched their flagship site.

  • Striking the Balance: Is your IT strategy helping you reach your goals?
    Source: CenturyLink
    Webcast: Success is all about the ying and yang of things- weighing every opportunity and challenge and striking the right balance. And in the increasingly complex data center environment, this balance has never been more important. Faced with rising costs and an increasingly complex IT environment to manage, companies are exploring alternative ways to manage and expand their infrastructures. And many have found the answer in IT managed services. Organizations today fully realize that some level of IT outsourcing is in their future but it needs to provide real-time resource allocations for both their IT staffing resources and the ability to leverage different platforms (colocation, cloud, managed, and network) to optimize workload efficiencies and reach corporate goals.

    This webinar will discuss how to begin down a Hybrid IT path that adds on to your current on-premise IT infrastructure. What workloads make the most sense to move off-premise? What do you need to think about before beginning the move, and how do you best manage the migration?

  • Optimize Your Business Critical Applications with Flash
    Source: CDW
    Webcast: We now live in a flash centric world where all active data must be on flash. This doesn't mean, however, that all data must be on flash. The best approach is to understand your application mix and workload requirements. Some key apps, like databases, are latency intolerant and should be pinned to flash. Others apps can benefit from fully-automated storage tiering. EMC's market leading VMAX and VNX systems are flexible choices that can deliver all-flash and hybrid services. CDW and EMC has you covered!

    Source: Brocade Communications Systems, Inc
    Webcast: VDI deployment is on the rise and expected to deliver significant operational advantages-but will it? Some VDI projects don't make it past the proof-of-concept stage due to poor performance. Many more fail to deliver tangible benefits because they can't scale to support a wide user base. Fortunately, Brocade and Pure Storage have teamed up to provide a joint VDI reference architecture that delivers performance and scalability by addressing potential bottlenecks at both the network and storage layers. In this Webinar, learn from an industry analyst and two solution architects about how this VDI solution can scale well beyond 1,000 persistent desktops with approximately half-second response times.

  • Press the Start Button on Information Governance: From 'Big Size' to 'Right Size'
    Source: IBM Corporation
    Webcast: How do ants eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Identifying, analyzing, and then acting on unstructured data in preparation for a data clean-up project, merger/acquisition, eDiscovery request, records classification, internal investigation, cloud migration, or even a data analytics project can seem overwhelming...just like an ant trying to eat an elephant...until we understand where to start.

    Join IBM for a webinar on October 8, 2014 featuring Cheryl McKinnon, Forrester principal analyst, as we discuss how to turn your unmanaged, unstructured data into relevant data, helping you jump start your information governance initiatives.

    As many of you know, the primary source of enterprise data growth, unstructured data, comes from disparate data sources, is spread across departments and locations, and is governed by ever changing compliance mandates and regulations. The nature of unstructured data makes finding that information governance "start button" a real challenge. Practitioners across legal, records, compliance, and IT struggle to answer these basic questions:
    - Do you know how much data you have?
    - Do you know where it's located and how much is classified?
    - Do you know who owns it?
    - Do you know how old it is?
    - Do you know how much is relevant to your business or just taking up space?
    - Do you know if it contains personally-identifiable information (PII) or other highly confidential information?

    Like an ant eating an elephant, it's all about perspective. Join us for a discussion on how to transform your "elephant size" unstructured data into "right size" relevant data and jump start your critical data-driven initiatives.
  • Monitoring in a Virtualized Data Center
    Source: Ixia
    Webcast: Network blind spots have become a costly and risk-filled challenge for network operators. Further, unseen inter-VM and cross-blade data center traffic leaves the network vulnerable to threats, noncompliance, loss of availability, and impaired performance. Today, up to 80 percent of data center traffic can travel between servers, making end-to-end visibility a real challenge.
