Recorded Webinar: Optimize Your VMware, Cisco UCS, and NetApp Infrastructure


Modern organizations need networking power – to communicate with customers, collaborate with colleagues and partners, manage applications, and much more. That’s why so many are deploying virtualization technologies to scale their networking power with less risk.

For organizations using these technologies, NetCraftsmen and Cisco Systems joined together for a free webinar on how to harmonize server, virtualization, and storage.

In less than one hour, we covered:

  • The Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS): Best practices and Optimization
  • VMware: Resource usage and optimization, iSCSI and network file system considerations, and VM Best Practices
  • NetApp: Optimization with VMware vSphere

We’ll also discussed the NetCraftsmen Assessment process, which ensures your organization’s infrastructure gets the best and most reliable performance out of your hardware and software.

Any organization using virtualization technology to boost its networking power should view this free webinar.
