Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Webcast The last two or three years have witnessed major shifts in the tectonics of server operations and management as “virtualisation” has begun to make inroads running corporate applications. But with the range of server platforms available on which to run applications and business services, where does it make sense to operate critical workloads?

Managing workloads of varying importance to the business across multiple platforms is not easy, even with the best management tools, and becomes almost impossible to undertake manually as the push for greater flexibility increases. This begs the question, are there any alternative solutions available to help manage workloads effectively in response to greater requirements for security, availability, performance and cost-effectiveness?

In our webcast on Thursday the 7th of April at 11:00BST The Register's Tim Phillips is joined by Tony Lock, from Freeform Dynamics, and Ray Jones from IBM to discuss these questions and much more.

They'll be looking at how much of the early promise of virtualisation is being held back by operational management challenges, how the different workloads - transactions, BI, analytics, BPM, - effect these challenges, and how consolidation can play a massive part in future workload challenges, if done correctly.

If you've been wondering about how to manage your workloads efficiently, you can join us for free right here.

If you can't make the live event, register with us today and we'll email you when the recorded version is available.
