The rapid rise of Fintech and the development of new applications, processes, products and business models present new challenges and opportunities as it both disrupts and transforms financial services organizations.

Embracing Bimodal IT: Steps You Should Be Taking Today
Date: Dec 01, 2015

View archived webinar

Driven by a need for greater agility, a majority of organizations say they are embracing bimodal IT. This approach segments IT into two distinct modes: a traditional mode that emphasizes scalability and accuracy, and an agile mode that focuses on flexibility and speed.

UBM Tech recently conducted a survey, sponsored by Red Hat, that asked IT decision-makers at large enterprises about their current efforts and future plans for bimodal IT. It found that while enterprises plan to become more agile within three to five years, most are still dominated by traditional IT applications and infrastructure. In order to adopt a true bimodal IT approach, they’ll need to overcome significant barriers such as a lack of knowledgeable staff, security concerns, and siloed architecture.

Join Marty Wesley, a senior product marketing manager at Red Hat, and Cynthia Harvey, writer for InformationWeek, as they discuss the research and examine what organizations should be doing right now to smooth the transition toward bimodal IT.

Join us to

  • Learn why bimodal IT is going to be important for most organizations over the next three to five years.
  • Understand the top barriers to bimodal IT and how to overcome them.
  • Find out what your organization should be doing today to prepare for bimodal IT.

View archived webinar

Does the idea of moving your enterprise data and infrastructure to the cloud fill you with fear, uncertainty, and doubt? If so, you're not alone. Many IT professionals believe moving to the cloud will lessen their control over mission critical applications and information. The danger is not in moving to the cloud, but in doing it wrong. Knowing the right questions to ask yourself and your provider can go a long way toward alleviating your fears as you evaluate your infrastructure options.

We'll take you behind the scenes to look at what cloud provider certifications, and ratings really mean. We'll guide you on the right questions to ask to ensure you have a solid RFP to help you make strategic decisions. And we'll pay special attention to how your operations team and that of your provider can reduce the risk of downtime.

Join us for this webinar and you’ll learn:

  • Key questions to ask as you evaluate cloud providers
  • What uptime means in the real world
  • Where is risk really introduced and how you can mitigate it
  • What to look for in compliance and the cloud.
  • Cloud connectivity options – from best to worst.
  • How leading companies have made a smart reallocation of IT resources to elevate operations and control in the cloud.

The New Economics of Flash Storage
Date: Oct 01, 2015

View archived webinar

Flash storage changes everything.  In today’s business world, enterprises are looking for every advantage possible.  While storage budgets remain challenged, enterprises are forced to address an ever growing amount of data to store and analyze.  Flash storage can provide the fastest, most economical way to address this deluge – if purchased, architected and protected properly.

In this webinar, independent IT analyst George Crump from Storage Switzerland will challenge members of the Dell Enterprise Solutions Group to explain how the data center is rapidly evolving around flash, and how a business should prepare for this significant transition now.

While flash can transform your data center, you’ll need to understand the various product choices for flash storage, and how these systems have ripple effects throughout the data center including data protection and backup.  TLC flash in particular can make flash storage more affordable than ever, but there are pitfalls with this technology as well.

Flash for MySQL: How to Increase Performance and Lower Costs
Date: Jul 09, 2015

View archived webinar

Is your MySQL database storage plan killing your datacenter efficiency? The traditional storage approach for MySQL databases is to deploy servers in master/slave pairs. The master is part of a larger cluster where database rows are horizontally ‘shared’ across multiple masters to enable scale-out. Slaves are used for off-load of read traffic and act as fail-over nodes in the event that a master server crashes or data gets corrupted. Since database corruption and server crashes are rare, many slaves sit idly, taking up space, power, and requiring expensive cooling.

Attend this Webinar and you'll learn about options that allow you to de-couple slaves from masters and consolidate servers, resolving sever sprawl without putting your data at risk. In this one-hour presentation, we'll give you:

  • Four viable options for addressing server sprawl. 
  • A simple, yet effective option to reduce server count by up to 50%.
  • Ways to time and money by changing the way your masters replicate to your pool of slaves.

Register now to attend this webinar and as an added bonus you'll receive the white paper "Optimize MySQL Cluster Environments with HGST Flash Pools."
