Tier 1 applications are critical to business success, and today, most businesses have virtualized their tier 1 applications. In this webinar, IT Pro Today senior contributing editor Michael Otey will discuss virtualization best practices for tier 1 application performance and availability.
You’ll learn about the important factors for configuring your virtualization hosts and guests to obtain the best application performance. The webinar will also cover how hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) provides advantages in application resiliency over traditional siloed architectures. You’ll also get an overview of the different tools and technologies that can increase the availability of your virtualized tier 1 applications.
Next, Nutanix experts will explain how to design and deliver high performing applications with strong resiliency on the Nutanix platform. You’ll learn about both general application design principles as well as specific Nutanix features that are critical for successful tier 1 deployments. We will round out the session by showing you how the X-Ray tool can be used to simulate tier 1 application workloads with common data-center scenarios.
