This PanelCast will feature discussions around the challenges, opportunities, and realities when it comes to securing organizations, around the needs that organizations must consider with both on-premises and cloud technologies, and around tools that organizations can leverage to help secure themselves. Panel participants will have the opportunity to discuss the critical questions that surround security – in both the human and the technical arenas – and help the audience get answers to their most burning security questions.

For PanelCast events, ActualTech Media procures questions from the audience ahead of the event and shares with vendor participants ahead of time the questions that we will ask. We never accept “gotcha” questions or anything that could be considered sensitive.

Vendor Fit:
If you’re a vendor that has a specialty in helping clients secure their environments, we’d love to talk with you about participating in this unique event.

Event Description:

The word “cloud” has been shredded by so many that no one really knows what it means in the context of product marketing anymore. And, there are so very many different ways to “do cloud” that buyers need guidance as to what the best path forward for them might be. At the same time, buyers have heard the stories about public cloud and are considering plans there, even as they face great trepidation in doing so.

More and more, hybrid and enterprise cloud scenarios are becoming the norm, but buyers need understanding for what options are open to them. ActualTech Media cloud events are intended to showcase offerings from across the cloud spectrum, from highlighting private cloud solutions to showcasing how companies can protect their data in a cloudy world to demonstrating how multi-cloud management solutions can reign in the chaos that can otherwise dominate a multi-cloud paradigm.

Vendor Fit:

Any vendor that has a cloud product, including infrastructure vendors with a cloud play, cloud management solutions, cloud- centric data protection solutions, cloud-based disaster recovery solutions, or SaaS product offering

Event Description:

Like virtualization before it, the container ecosystem is growing at a break neck pace, with solutions being introduced every day intended to address and support different aspects of the technology. Unlike the early days of virtualization, though, containers aren’t operating solely in the vacuum of the on-premises data center. This continually evolving market is forced to reckon with the realities faced by enterprise customers’ desire to deploy deeply integrated hybrid cloud architectures with containers running anywhere atop these geo-spanning fabrics. Further, containers represent an opportunity to fundamentally rethink application architectures in ways that other technologies simply can’t make possible.

For enterprise IT customers, implementing a container strategy requires knowledge of a lot of moving parts and a deep understanding of the key players in the container ecosystem. It’s also important to understand the kinds of application development and operations capabilities that containers can unlock, particularly at scale.

The ActualTech Media Containers EcoCast brings together the companies that are leading the containers charge and helps the audience understand the current state of this burgeoning market and what is important.

Vendor Fit:

Any company with a container story, whether that’s around containers themselves, orchestration, storage, data protection, hybrid cloud, security, and more. If you have a container- centric message, you’re a fit for this event.

Event Description:

As organizations continue their digital transformation efforts, their data center environments will also need to undergo continuous transformation to keep pace with the organizational shifts. Even more challenging, the entire concept of the “data center” itself is undergoing its own transformation as organizations continue their hybrid and multicloud endeavors that augment their on-premises systems. Suddenly what once was a room with four walls and air conditioning now encompasses locations across the planet. This dynamic opens up innumerable opportunities, but also brings new challenges.

What will these kinds of environments look like? What products and services are available to help organizations support the workloads of today while preparing for the fluidity of tomorrow? How can organizations ensure seamless fluidity between on-premises and cloud-bases parts of this new data center paradigm? The ActualTech Media Next Generation Datacenter EcoCast brings together vendors with compelling stories around how they address the current and future challenges surrounding the workload environments of their customers.

Topics area of interest for this event: Datacenter infrastructure, storage, networking, hyperconverged infrastructure, data protection, cloud, cloud management, disaster recovery, security, monitoring & performance, application management, virtualization.

Vendor Fit:

Any vendor that has a story to tell in one of the topic areas of interest.

Event Description:

Virtualization is so passe?, right? Not so fast! While virtualization is hardly the new kid on the block when it comes to data center infrastructure, its role in the data center can't be overemphasized. In fact, it might be reasonable to say that virtualization has enabled many of today's cloud-based initiatives by helping to de- emphasize hardware in favor of a software defined data center. But, virtualization isn't about just the data center; virtualization can rule the desktop as well via virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Even today, VDI can be a beast to deploy and administer. But, failure carries with it high levels of visibility with end users and one wrong move can light up the help desk for hours.

ActualTech Media's Virtualization, VDI, and End User Computing events help audiences optimize their virtualized environments, improve and simplify their VDI environments, and understand the plethora of options that exist in the virtualization ecosystem. Vendors that join us for these events will be treated to an audience that is constantly looking for ways to improve their virtualized environment.

Vendor Fit:

Any vendor in the virtualization, private, or hybrid cloud space or that provides any kinds of tools that support virtual environment, including monitoring, data protection, management, and other tools or that provides a hardware platform tailor made for virtualized environments.

Event Description:

With massively growing data sets and expectations of 100% uptime with long term retention, companies are struggling to meet data protection and disaster recovery demands. These problems are prevalent, no matter the size of the organization. To compound that, IT organizations simply don’t have time to research and compare the latest software and hardware solutions available for enterprise data protection and disaster recovery.

There are constant advancements and innovations taking place in this space, particularly as organizations expand their IT environment to encompass public and private cloud environments. ActualTech Media’s Data Protection and Disaster Recovery events are intended to help our audience practitioners understand all of the options at their disposal with an eye toward comparing and contrasting competing solutions. Through participation in this event, enterprise IT vendors get in front of eager buyers that are on the hunt for improvements in critical data protection and disaster recovery capabilities.

Vendor Fit:

Any vendor that provides traditional backup software, disaster recovery products, disaster recovery as a service products, secondary storage systems.

Event Description:

As it has always been and as it always shall be, the network is the glue that binds together all of the disparate systems that span an enterprise. Far from being the mass of wires that used to define networking, this space is now dominated by both wired and wireless products as well as solutions that help enable the mobile revolution.

Security often goes hand-in-hand with networking as networks are charged with first-line defense. Security is an increasingly critical component of an organization’s risk management profile and, as companies rely more on data and systems to achieve their goals, there is far more risk than ever before. Organizations today need to secure against attacks from all angles using a variety of methods that protect the network, data systems, end user computing devices, other devices, such as printers, and much more. Enabling that security is a full-time job and security pros need to be constantly on the lookout for attacks from without and from within and help their organizations protect their most critical data assets.

Vendor Fit:

Any vendor that provides a networking or security product or service.
