Discover How IBM Uses InfluxDB and Grafana to Help Clients Monitor Large Production Servers and IBM Benchmark Centers
Webinar Date: 2020-08-13 08:00:00 (Pacific Time)
IBM has been innovating to create new products for its clients and the world for over a century. Customers look to IBM Power Systems to address their hybrid multicloud infrastructure needs. Larger POWER9 servers can have up to 192 CPU cores, 64 TB of memory, dozens of PB of SAN storage, and typically run a mixture of AIX (UNIX) and Enterprise Linux (RHEL or SLES) workloads. As part of its sales process, IBM is always benchmarking its new hardware and software which clients use to monitor their systems. Discover how IBM and its clients are using InfluxDB and Grafana to collect, store and visualize performance data, which is used to monitor and tune for peak performance in ever-changing workload environments.
Join this webinar featuring Nigel Griffiths from IBM, Ronald McCollam from Grafana Labs, and Russ Savage from InfluxData to learn how you can use InfluxDB and Grafana to improve large production workloads. Learn about the latest product updates from InfluxData and Grafana Labs.

Solutions Engineer, Grafana Labs
Ronald McCollam is a "geek of all trades" with experience ranging from full stack development to IT operations to management. He has a strong background in open source software, starting when a stack of 3.5" Slackware floppies was the *easy* way to install Linux. He has architected and managed everything from "Big Data" systems at Canonical and Hortonworks down to embedded IoT devices at balena.io, but the common theme with all systems has always been monitoring. So Grafana Labs is a perfect fit! When not on the road, Ronald resides on his back porch in Somerville, MA with a frosty beverage in hand.
