Optimizing Windows Workloads

Today's IT landscape is awash in competing demands—from the need to address increased regulatory compliance to more capital expenditures such as the rollout of new business intelligence or collaborative solutions. Yet one thing remains the same: IT organizations are increasingly expected to do more and more within less and less time—and typically with smaller and smaller budgets. Consequently, without a comprehensive, strategic, approach to systems and workload management, it’s entirely too easy for IT departments to become organizational liabilities instead of strategic business assets that they wish to be.
By attending this presentation, you'll learn about current trends and techniques for addressing common IT problems today—and gain insights into some of the pitfalls associated with these trends from a manageability standpoint. You'll also learn about ways in which administrative scalability can be increased and review examples of how next-generation approaches to pro-active management can help IT departments drastically decrease operational costs, decrease complex and expensive troubleshooting, and transition into a more strategic mode of operation where IT becomes a viable business asset instead of being a liability.

In this presentation, we’ll also look into Cisco’s Unified Data Center offering and see how it provides a complete data center infrastructure architecture. It combines compute, storage, network, security, and management into a fabric architecture that delivers outstanding performance for physical and virtualized business applications. Created to help companies evolve to cloud computing environments, the Unified Data Center embeds automation and simplified operations at the server, network, and cloud-services layers. It is built on the industry’s fastest-growing computing system (Cisco UCS), the market-share-leading network platform (Cisco Nexus), award-winning services-management framework (Cisco Intelligent Automation), and an open partner ecosystem. The Unified Data Center delivers an efficient, agile, and simplified operating environment for modern data centers.
