    Peter Meister, Sr. Director, Research & Strategy Recorded: Aug 15 2018 59 mins
    Customers across the globe are moving past mono-cloud operations and driving fast to consume cloud capabilities from multi-cloud providers. As clients start to use this broad multi-cloud fabric, it becomes ever more important to start to look at new and innovative ways to centralize management and security.

    In this session we will cover the new paradigm of thinking around Realm Management, the ability to manage multi-cloud infrastructure security from one central point of management and start collapsing the cloud providers down to a mission-critical cloud fabric. With the Palo Alto product family under the VM Series platform in coupling with Panorama, we are able to bring to life a single pane of glass management initiative that allows for central security, control and management of Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services in one console. We will review the technical architecture surrounding this solution and discuss, in-depth, the principal around realm management of multi-cloud and how best to centralize security once and push across many cloud providers at scale.

    Enterprise customers are moving quickly to multi-cloud consumption, and single realm security management will optimize and enhance the way they manage enterprise cloud security going forward.

  • Migrating Microsoft SQL Server to Amazon Aurora
    Migrating Microsoft SQL Server to Amazon Aurora
    Jason Carver, Director of Product Development, 2nd Watch Recorded: Jun 26 2017 51 mins
    For decades, traditional relational databases have been the primary choice for data storage and persistence. These database systems continue to rely on monolithic architectures and were not designed to take advantage of cloud infrastructure. These monolithic architectures present many challenges, particularly in areas such as cost, flexibility, and availability.

    In 2016, Amazon Web Services Premier Partner, 2nd Watch, performed an analysis on the amount of AWS billing data that they had collected, and the number of payer accounts they had processed over the course of the previous year. The results of that analysis revealed that their single MS SQL server instance could no longer support the rapid pace at which the company continues to grow and on-board new clients.

    Lars Cromley, Sr Product Manager, 2nd Watch Recorded: Sep 28 2016 52 mins
    As organizations create increasingly complex software applications, IT development teams evolved their software creation practices for more flexibility, moving from waterfall models to agile or lean development practices.

    Today, DevOps designates a set of tools, processes, best practices and corporate management guidelines that make an IT organization more agile and more efficient. While the software tools and practices promoted by DevOps practitioners are well understood, rigid infrastructures reduce the benefits and hinders the application of agile methods.
