    Webinar: Why Computing Environments Need Even More Abstraction


    Hypervisors have revolutionized enterprise computing. Abstracting the operating system from underlying hardware resources via the creation of virtual machines (VMs) has yielded enormous benefits.


    But why stop at the operating system? Emerging technologies are now taking virtualization even further – abstracting the individual applications from the operating system itself. Imagine the possibilities of a ‘micro hypervisor’ for operating systems.


    Watch this webinar and learn from industry leaders Nutanix and Bromium about the next wave of virtualization and application abstraction.

    In this webinar you will learn:

    - Why there is motivation to abstract application-specific workloads from the operating system 
    - New use cases supported by introducing another layer of abstraction
    - Where hardware technologies are evolving to enable this trend

    - How developments in virtualization will alter the relationship between the hardware, hypervisor and application environment

    Building Next-Gen Datacenters with Converged Infrastructure

    Presenter: Greg Smith, Senior Director of Product and Technical Marketing

    Datacenter architectures are undergoing a major transformation, as virtualization and a new generation of converged infrastructure deliver unprecedented flexibility, scalability, and efficiency. Companies of all sizes, including SMBs, can now tap the same technologies powering world-class IT leaders, such as Google, Facebook and Amazon, to scale their infrastructure seamlessly and predictably. 

    This next-generation of converged solution collapses storage and compute resources into a single tier, completely eliminating the cost and complexity of SANs. It’s now possible to run entire datacenters using off-the-shelf hardware to power company growth and ‘right size’ infrastructure investment. 

    This webinar from Nutanix will examine the most recent developments in virtualization and storage, and detail how these new technologies can be deployed to build next-generation datacenters at any scale. 


    Watch this webinar and learn:

    -       How the same converged architectures powering Google can be leveraged in your datacenter

    -       The best way to deploy a converged infrastructure to run any virtual workload

    -       The right way to eliminate your SAN and improve storage performance and functionality
