Mobile application security vulnerability report

Proper Webcast If you’re running a data center, or just a moderate server room, chances are you’ve got an awful lot on your plate. It only gets worse too. Day to day; new demands, new apps, new kit, new pressures and more than likely, you only have partial visibility on these matters.

Well, no more. The mighty readers of The Register are here to help.

On the 26th of November at 11am we’ll be sharing the wisdom of your peers in a live webcast on the state of the x86 server estate.

Much of the webcast will be drawing on research we recently completed with the readers and it promises to give you some major insight into how your peers are coping with these pressures – and give you the low-down on exactly what pressures they’re feeling.

We’ll consider the state of play in the server room, using this recent research to understand just what are the forces on the x86 server environment, and how organisations are setting about dealing with these challenges. This will include looking at the following trends, techniques and capabilities.

- The currency of server environments, and the management challenges that are perceived - Drivers for change, where they are coming from and what impact they are having - New chipset developments and their enhanced capabilities - Investment and modernisation plans, and what hurdles are in the way of modernisation - The impact of x86 server virtualisation - Management realities in terms of capabilities, and plans for improvement

You can expect real world anecdotes and scenarios from readers of The Register. The event will be fronted by the legendary Tim Phillips from The Register and will include Jon Collins from Freeform Dynamics and Iain Beckingham, a server expert from Intel.

We won’t be talking at you, this gig is interactive, so you can ask questions and get granular on any points you need answered.

We hope to see you there.
