It’s 2016—but organizations still struggle to deliver consistent and predictable performance for their cloud and virtualized applications. Even with advances in flash technology, storage remains designed for physical, not virtual, workloads—and it shows with unpredictable performance, difficult troubleshooting and fragile scalability. Storage needs to be aligned to virtualization, but what is VM-aware storage besides a buzzword? We will investigate the five requirements of VM-aware storage, and which technologies enable those requirements.
Many organizations are exerting top-down pressure to examine cloud and as-a-service models in general. To the IT managers and administrators in the data center, losing control of your data and/or applications can be a scary thing. There is also a complex web of fiscal and technical items that must be considered.
In this presentation, we will help you build a base understanding of the three core as-a-service models. We will then go on to discuss what we see working with our customers in the real world; these are opportunities that can offload some of the drudgery in your data center, while at the same time demonstrating to your organization that you are embracing the cloud. This presentation provides an in depth discussion surround the pros and cons of moving applications, and or infrastructure over to cloud and managed services.
This panel will cover all aspects of confidentiality integrity and availability (CIA triangle) as viewed through three different perspectives in the industry. Specifically, successes in mobile, backup and physical security will be discussed, as well as current projects in balancing convenience and security and digesting large amounts of security data. Finally, the panel will discuss what-if scenarios for an unlimited budget in what’s next for IT security.
Panel Moderated by: Gavin W. Manes, Ph.D. • Chief Executive Officer of Avansic
Kirk Walker • Manager, Network Support Group/Sr. Network Engineer
Greg Wilson • Global Director of IT at Navico
Dr. Gavin Manes is a nationally recognized expert in e-discovery and digital forensics. He is currently the CEO of Avansic, a firm that provides the legal, business, and government sectors with e-discovery, digital forensics, managed services, hosted online review, and expert services.
Dr. Manes founded this Tulsa-based company in 2004 after receiving his PhD in Computer Science and serving as a professor at the University of Tulsa. Avansic’s scientific approach to e-discovery and digital forensics stems from Manes’ academic experience; this brings a logical and defensible approach to discovery. Avansic creates custom solutions in the laboratory to make processing more efficient and works with clients to create custom solutions and specialized workflows for any size e-discovery project; for example, Dr. Manes and Avansic have assisted in many aspects of e-discovery for one of the country’s largest MDL litigations.
Dr. Manes has served as an expert witness for many legal proceedings through courtroom testimony, depositions and consulting with attorneys on data preservation issues. He has given hundreds of presentations to law firms, corporate officers, legal conferences and judges on the latest topics in e-discovery. He frequently publishes articles in peer-reviewed journals and whitepapers on e-discovery, security, and information technology.
Abstract: The majority of our days are spent interacting with technology. Dr. Manes will speak on the stories that can be reconstructed through investigating computers in all their formats, whether it’s a camera or a dozen servers full of subpoenaed data. Even though most people know that what they do on their devices isn’t exactly private, this talk will highlight some of the lesser-known capabilities of e-discovery and digital forensics.
Join us for an in-depth discussion covering the following areas:
No one thinks they need disaster recovery until they do. The fact is that most “disasters” and datacenter outages are not caused my hurricanes or severe weather. Random power outages, human errors and many other non-weather factors are the typical causes of service interruptions. Join us to see the results of a survey of IT professionals just like you and learn:
We will cover two use cases which outline gaps in their DR strategy and how you are able to overcome these gaps. Join us to learn more!
Whether due to litigation, government subpoena, or internal investigation, many modern IT departments find themselves needing digital forensics or e-discovery to help investigate, process, or review digital information. Cases can range from single email boxes or fileshares to multiple cell phones, tablets, and cloud accounts. This presentation discusses the capabilities of digital forensics investigators and e-discovery processing tools in the context of three scenarios: an employee leaving a company with intellectual property, a wide-ranging government subpoena, and defending a lawsuit. Dr. Manes will discuss the specific information technology issues at every stage, from collection to processing and investigation to document review and production.
For decades, IT departments have struggled under the limitations of their storage suppliers. Shackled by the inherent inefficiency of mechanical disk, organizations are slower, less efficient, and less responsive. We at Pure say, “Lay down that rusty old disk and fight for a better future! It is high time the IT industry said NO to slow performance, data center bloat, and adversarial business practices. The time for change has come – time for speed, efficiency, and fairness. Join the Flash Revolution!”
This session is all about system availability and coming to grips with your backups and storage architecture. Our Veeam Engineer will provide a lively session to ensure you leave with industry best practices for “Future Proofing” your backups and achieving “Always On” availability for your enterprise.
Every business today relies on applications to support business critical processes, and these applications, in turn, rely on rapid and timely access to data from the underlying infrastructure. When something in the infrastructure layer slows down the applications, it can negatively impact business outcomes – better known as the App-Data gap. This presentation will discuss the infrastructure complexities that drive the App-Data gap and how, through Predictive Analytics and a Unified Flash Fabric, organizations can understand the data derived from applications, compute, networking, storage, converged infrastructure themselves and turn it into meaningful action.
