Building a State-of-the-Art IT Operation

It’s no surprise that IT infrastructure and operations professionals are busy – they’re responsible for building, managing and protecting the critical systems that keep their business running; thus consuming most (if not all) of their time. Yet, IT is under the gun to deliver services faster than ever before – and at better performance and service levels. Failure is simply not an option, as they run the risk of end users going behind their backs, circumventing corporate IT in favor of cloud services. So how do today’s IT pros avoid falling behind the changing marketplace while still keeping their operation intact? We’ve developed a comprehensive, half-day event with two of the field’s top independent experts – Scott Lowe and Michael Cote – designed specifically to help today’s busiest IT professionals keep pace with business demands.

Design, Configure and Manage Storage for Virtual Environments with Howard Marks

Configuring storage to support the new server infrastructure has gotten tougher – making it more and more difficult for IT shops to reap the full benefits of virtualization. While networked storage is an essential piece of a virtualized infrastructure, most traditional storage systems are ill-equipped to deal with the fluctuating throughput, highly random writes/reads, high IOPs demands and latency issues common to virtualization. At our newest half-day seminar, independent expert Howard Marks – an industry leader with over 30 years of hands-on experience – uncovers best practices for optimizing storage configuration for the virtual environment.
