Software-Defined Storage Webcast: Join IBM on May 15th & Bring Questions
If you're trying to store more, but literally running out of space in your data center, you'll want to join IBM for a live webcast on May 15th to hear about the Storwize family.
IT infrastructures have become onerously complex. Optimizing server-storage architectures for growth and manageability is challenging, and while tiered storage design can help to mitigate some of these issues, it can be difficult and costly to implement. Data mobility between and among various systems, along with a proliferation of isolated and often dissimilar management tools only compounds the problem. Meanwhile, organizations struggle to contain the spiraling costs of storage and storage management. A lack of storage virtualization in many environments also inhibits the ability of server and network virtualization to help improve overall asset utilization and drive out cost.
Join us on this webcast to learn how IBM Smarter Storage stands up to these challenges and allows organizations to optimize storage for today and tomorrow, while driving out cost and improving service levels. You'll see how the IBM Storwize family of storage solutions leverages advanced functionality like heterogeneous virtualization, real-time compression of live production data, consistent, simplified management tools and intelligent automated flash optimization to maximize efficiency while improving performance and reducing cost. These are family values that can truly improve user experience and create real economic value at the same time.

Every IT manager knows that under utilized data center assets can quickly run up costs. But what do you do about it? On top of the space and energy they require, there's the additional administrative and software expenses . The more components you have the more complex your system can become.

Next week, IBM will be hosting a unique web event. We'll be doing an industry roundtable, entitled the "IBM Private Cloud: Why Infrastructure Matters." What's the difference between an a roundtable web event and a webcast you might ask? Well, this roundtable is designed to be more interactive that a typical webcast. On a webcast, listeners typically hear a presentation and get to ask questions at the end. In this roundtable format, we'll be taking some commonly asked questions from IBM customers and asking them of our speakers, David Reine, Analyst at The Clipper Group and Annette Miller, Worldwide Cloud Development Executive at IBM.
These experts will share best practices for choosing an infrastructure that gets the most from your cloud. You'll see how you cannot only look forward to increased utilization and availability, but also to solutions that can be easily integrated into your existing resources—saving you from costly "rip and replace" disruptions. With a strong private cloud foundation, you can start driving high-levels of business value with new offerings and services.
Companies are already turning to the cloud to extract the greatest utilization and value from their IT investments. But some are finding that immature and insecure infrastructures are limiting the efficiency of their cloud. They're still waiting on the promise of a flexible, scalable and cost-effective environment.
Register for this informative industry roundtable to hear customers' frequently asked questions on the cloud answered by experts! And bring your own questions,
You're invited to join the "IBM Private Cloud: Why Infrastructure Matters" industry roundtable discussion on Thursday, April 26, 2012 11:00a.m. – 12:00p.m. ET.

Smarter computing for a smarter planet. Join IBM for the launch of an entirely new category of computing, expert integrated systems
On April 11th, you're invited to join IBM
online for the launch of an entirely new category of computing, expert integrated systems. IBM will be introducing expert integrated systems featuring both hardware and software solutions. This new computing category is expected to help change the way you deploy, manage and fund IT.
Some of us know all too well how painful IT-related challenges can be. Sometimes it seems that every project is underfunded with limited resources to make it all work. With overburdened budgets and staffs that can mean that precious time is wasted . Organizations can spend billions of dollars on maintenance instead of innovation. IBM has heard from, you, our customers, that it was time to fundamentally rethink how we design and build systems. That's why we've been working to develop expert integrated systems to offer a solution that offers the flexibility of a general-purpose system with the simplicity of an appliance.
We're hoping that new integrated systmes designed by IBM
can get you up and running in as little as a few hours, cutting months off deployment times of new application projects. It’s all based on patterns of expertise, that you deploy as quickly and easily as you download and use apps on a smartphone. IBM's goal is to help customers acheive faster system set-up and application deployment time. Register for our virtual event to get all the details
and bring your questions. We want to hear from you!
