8:45 - 9:15: Protection against Phishing Attacks/Malware plus Virtual/Cloud Security Solutions with Kaspersky
Kaspersky is the world's largest privately held, and among the top four, security vendors, operating in 200 countries and protecting 300 million users. Its mission is to provide the world's most effective, responsive and efficient protection against cyber-threats: those from malware, spam, hackers, DDoS attacks, sophisticated cyber-espionage tools, and cyber-weapons that target organization's critical IT infrastructure with potentially catastrophic consequences. Their talk will focus on protecting your increasingly virtualized and cloud-based IT infrastructure and confidential data against the latest and most sophisticated phishing attacks and malware.
9:15 - 9:45: HP: Software Defined Networks (SDN)
The world is moving faster than ever. Transactions must be processed at lightning speed. Mountains of data must be transformed into insights. Customers want exceptional service. Employees want access to information and applications from any device. Delivering on those expectations requires data centers that are more powerful, agile, and automated than ever before, and a campus environment that responds to a dynamic and changing workforce.
Server and storage architectures have modernized to keep pace with the unyielding expectations of an always-on world, but the underlying network has not. The data center network itself, while certainly bigger and faster, has largely been built the same way for two decades. Evolution of campus networks has been slow, despite the mobility revolution. Whether in the data center or on the campus, when legacy networks are pushed to the limit, they become fragile, difficult to manage, vulnerable, and expensive to operate. Manual configuration and operation simply won’t scale to the demands of today’s applications, users, and business requirements. Businesses whose networks are at this breaking point risk missing the next wave of opportunity.
This session provides an overview of the HP Virtual Application Networks (VAN) SDN Controller and how HP is fostering the development of a vibrant SDN ecosystem to help enterprises, cloud providers, and developers unleash new levels of automation and efficiency in data center, private/public hybrid cloud architecture and campus networks.
9:45 - 10:15: Next-Generation Data Center and Virtual Computing Platforms - Adapting Google's Architect/Strategy to your Infrastructure and Cloud Strategy - with Nutanix
Nutanix delivers web-scale IT infrastructure - modeled after Google and Facebook's architecture - to medium and large enterprises with its software-driven Virtual Computing Platform, natively converging compute and storage into a single solution to drive unprecedented simplicity in the datacenter.
