VISI to Host Managed Services Webinar

By Meagan Maue | January 03, 2012

How do downtime, outages and other problems impact your business?   How satisfied you are with the level and quality of monitoring you have today?  Are you too busy with routine maintenance to focus on higher-value projects?

VISI is hosting a webinar on January 25, 2012 entitled Partnering with an MSP for Monitoring and Management. MSP’s let you offload specific IT operations while assuming responsibility for monitoring, managing and maintenance of network, software, hardware and related IT systems and functions on your behalf. This webinar will educate participants about the services offered by a managed services provider (MSP) as well as provide a demo of VISI’s advanced monitoring and alerting capabilities.

What does this evolution mean for your business and your customers? What are some of the industry and market forces shaping this evolution in IT?

The Data Center – Survival of the Fittest

By Alan Muther | December 14, 2010

Everyone hears of business economic upturns, downturns and cycle. Data centers started in vacant rooms and university science hall basements, evolved to pristine and secure facilities with a cost per square foot exceeding the best R&D facilities in the country, with higher operating costs per square foot than any the garage rock bands of the 60′s could have imagined. For the past 50 years there have been cycles in technologies and business that have fueled the evolution of the data center systems, networks and how people use them.

This presentation will take a bit of a walk down memory lane, look at cycles of technology that have driven architecture and end user patterns, and what has led to the super species of corporate and service provider data center that dot the landscape. What designs stayed the same, what is changing, and what are some of the innovative approaches being taken today? What does it take to survive in your data center world? How do we manage these facilities today versus days gone by?

Tune-in Thursday, December 16th at 10:15am CST to watch Leon Schilmoeller present as part of the IASA’s E-Summit: The Architect Hodgepodge webinar. Register today.
