While flash storage can enhance the performance of your applications, there are three potential roadblocks to realizing the full value from a flash investment:
• Storage network capacity
• Storage architecture

One of the few places that pervasive Wi-Fi is not found these days is in US Federal Government office buildings and military bases. Government IT departments explain this lack of modern technology by pointing to Information Assurance (IA) departments who block their planned deployments because of security concerns. IA departments, on the other hand, point to unclear rules, regulations, and policies around Wi-Fi use which prevent them from making informed risk decisions.
Today’s data centers are expected to deploy, manage, and report on different tiers of business applications, databases, virtual workloads, home
directories, and file sharing simultaneously. They also need to co-locate multiple systems while sharing power and energy. This is true for large as
well as small environments. The trend in modern IT is to consolidate as much as possible to minimize cost and maximize efficiency of data
centers and branch offices. HPE 3PAR StoreServ is highly efficient, flash-optimized storage engineered for the true convergence of block, file,
and object access to help consolidate diverse workloads efficiently. HPE 3PAR OS and converged controllers incorporate multiprotocol support
into the heart of the system architecture
IT executives are in one of the most dynamic, challenging business environments of all time. The business expects speed; the IT function strives to keep up while pursuing innovation and efficiency. Many CIOs recognize that cloud is a possible solution to achieving both but they are uncertain about the best way to
Whether your company seeks to modernize IT, fuel innovation or accelerate growth, you’ll find that by identifying the most appropriate cloud journey for your organization, you can determine the best potential entry points to cloud migration as well as identify, prepare and prevent possible roadblocks.
And, you’ll discover how the right cloud platform and partner can enable your success by leveraging different layers of the cloud to reach your desired business outcomes—and ultimately achieve true business transformation.

VCE pioneered Converged Infrastructure with the introduction of Vblock® Systems in 2009, and today we’ve helped more than 1,200 global enterprise customers transform their IT environments to become more agile, reliable, and cost-effective. Dell EMC brings together best-of-breed technologies in converged Vblock Systems and VxBlock™ Systems solutions to power data centers and simplify management and operations throughout the system life cycle.
Imagine the benefits that a VDI environment could realize during a boot storm. All the VMs are based on the same template, and therefore they all have the same set of files during initial boot. Normally, 100 VMs all booting at the same time would require a significant number of HDDs, but with this hyperconverged infrastructure platform, the first VM to boot reads the block off the HDD, which promotes that block into cache. Now the next 99 VMs can all access that same block from cache. That’s a 100:1 IOPS reduction on the IOPS-bound disks.
Today’s threat landscape is nothing like that of just 10 years ago. Simple attacks that caused containable damage have given way to modern cybercrime operations that are sophisticated, well-funded, and capable of causing major disruptions to organizations and the national infrastructure. Not only are these advanced attacks difficult to detect, but they also remain in networks for long periods of time and amass network resources to launch attacks elsewhere.
Traditional defenses that rely exclusively on detection and blocking for protection are no longer adequate. It’s time for a new security model that addresses the full attack continuum—before, during, and after an attack.

Attackers and malware are increasingly relying on a common set of tools to compromise identities and spread within a network. Tools like Mimikatz accompanied with common administrator tools like PsExec and WMI have become a standard part of an attacker’s arsenal to turn a single machine compromise into a full network breach. In this webinar we will take a look at why some of these tools are traditionally difficult to control, and introduce new countermeasures that let you fight back. In this webinar we will cover:
- An analysis of recent malware and attacks and the tools they used to spread through the network.
- A closer look at the underlying protocols supporting these tools, and the traditional challenges to controlling them.
- Introduce new controls that allow organizations to control NTLM in real-time, block pass-the-hash techniques, and adaptively control the use of NTLM in the network.
- How to gain visibility into PsExec, WMI, and RPC in general and how to create controls t
