Today’s data centers require the best security available, both for private clouds and for service providers with hosted solutions. Whether they are deploying VDI, SQL Server, or general infrastructure, ensuring advanced and dependable security is critical to their environments. Gridstore and 5nine Software have formed a strategic partnership to deliver a tightly integrated hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) cloud security solution designed for on-premises private clouds and for service providers delivering a hosted solution.

During the webinar, Symon and Kelly will discuss designing and deploying the HCI solution with advanced cloud security. Attendees will learn how
• Data centers can enable strong security that does not slow systems
• Service providers will see secure multi-tenant protection

Included in the webinar will be a demo that will show how easily the HCI solution can be implemented.

The webinar recording will be sent to all attendees at the conclusion of the session. Participants that attend the entire webinar and be entered to win one of three $100 gift cards!
