DataCore Webcast: Zero Downtime, Zero Touch for Stretch Clusters, using Software-Defined Storage

DataCore Webcast: Zero Downtime, Zero Touch for Stretch Clusters, using Software-Defined Storage

Topic: Business continuity, especially across data centers in nearby locations often depends on complicated scripts, manual intervention and numerous checklists. Those error-prone processes are exponentially more difficult when the data storage equipment differs between sites. Such difficulties force many organizations to settle for partial disaster recovery measures, conceding data loss and hours of downtime during occasional facility outages.


In this webcast and live demo, you’ll learn about:
• Software-defined storage services capable of continuously mirroring data in real-time between unlike storage devices.
• Non-disruptive failover between stretched cluster requiring zero touch
• Rapid restoration of normal conditions when the facilities come back up

PhoenixNap Webcast: Building A Secure Cloud Platform Leveraging VMware NSX and Intel Technologies

PhoenixNap Webcast: Building A Secure Cloud Platform Leveraging VMware NSX and Intel Technologies

Topic: In this webinar, we cover the market gap and other reasons that led us to create this service offering. We discuss the process we used to vet our existing systems and why we chose to architect and build from the ground up. We also explain how we integrated real-time monitoring and threat detection as core component and why this increases the overall security posture of our customers, with a particular focus on increased aggregate visibility and how the greater the number of dots, the clearer the overall picture.


We also dive into how we leveraged the latest in software-defined networking (including VMware NSX technologies), good reference architecture techniques, and security best practices to create a secure platform and achieve regulatory compliance. By exploring architecture we’ve developed and implemented for regulatory-sensitive workloads, we examine how we’ve leveraged NSX micro-segmentation and virtual routing capabilities to product two- and three-tier implementations that go far beyond the level of on-premises technical capabilities.


Our goal is to show you what’s possible. The paradigm changed. Networking and cloud converged. This brings new tools professionals can use to enhance security postures. We also aim to create an open forum to foster communication about usage of cloud-based technologies for regulatory-sensitive workloads and how anyone can augment their on-premises implementation to gain better visibility into and control over both north-south and east-west traffic.

ClearSky Webcast: Don't Get Spooked by DR Fears: Get Disaster Recovery On-Demand

Three Ways to Get your VMs to the Cloud and Out of the Secondary Data Center

ClearSky Webcast: Don't Get Spooked by DR Fears: Get Disaster Recovery On-Demand

Topic: During this session, we'll identify three strategies to help VMware users consume DR on-demand, achieve RPO 0 and RTO less than 1 min and eliminate their secondary data centers.
As IT professionals know, Disaster Recovery is far more than recovery from the weather-driven events we see becoming more common every day. Disasters are more often the result of user-errors within the enterprise. These common and preventable outages result in significant customer downtime and are driving enterprises to take DR seriously and make sure their strategy is proven, tested, affordable and can meet business SLAs.


Join us on October 31 and learn more.
