    Crawl, Walk, Run: Transforming the Legacy Enterprise with Microsoft Azure
    David McKenney, Director Product Management | TierPoint Recorded: Dec 4 2018 56 mins
    Digital transformation doesn’t happen overnight. Whatever your strategy, you’ve likely had to research, assess, trial, or even migrate workloads to a public cloud.

    Platforms like Microsoft Azure offer an expansive portfolio of solutions but also create many opportunities for quick wins in the traditional IaaS space and, for many, are a step in the journey to transform the legacy enterprise.

    Join us for a discussion focused on the core set of services needed to build out a virtual private cloud in Azure, addressing many of the decision points that professionals are confronted with during this process. Additionally, we will review several PaaS offerings that might complement your IaaS environment.

  • From Hurricanes to Hackers: The Expanding Horizons for Disaster Recovery
    From Hurricanes to Hackers: The Expanding Horizons for Disaster Recovery
    David Hines, TierPoint - Vice President of Architecture and Engineering Recorded: Aug 22 2018 52 mins
    Business disruptions are not just inconvenient but can significantly damage a company’s reputation and bottom line. Many businesses are turning to Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solutions as they have effectively solved for downtime and data loss due to weather, system failures and human error. Moreover, DRaaS solutions are effective against cyber threats. Indeed, it’s not just the weather we should be worried about when it comes to disasters.

    One of the fastest growing types of attacks in recent years is ransomware. When infected, files and data are locked down and held hostage until a ransom is paid to the anonymous attacker. Due to the nature of DRaaS solutions, your organization is protected against ransomware thanks to available, continuous copies (or snapshots) of your data as well as processes to help fail back to regular operations.

    In this session, David Hines, Vice President of Architecture and Engineering at TierPoint will review the latest in ransomware tactics, and how to best prevent malware from entering the network in the first place. Sometimes, however, this is unavoidable and having a plan to mitigate the damage is a necessity.

  • Enterprise IT Shifts Off-Premises: Cloud, Data, and Digital Transformation
    Enterprise IT Shifts Off-Premises: Cloud, Data, and Digital Transformation
    Melanie Posey, 451 Research Recorded: Jun 14 2018 62 mins
    Digital transformation initiatives such as business intelligence/analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and big data are top priorities for IT organizations in 2018. Toward that end, according to a recent 451 Research survey, a full 60% of more than 1,000 IT leaders surveyed report that they plan to run the majority of their IT off-premises by year-end 2019, including public cloud and SaaS.

    At the same time, a number of organizational, cultural, and technology challenges have kept almost two-thirds of IT executives from developing formal digital transformation strategies.

    What is the path forward? What does the off-premise landscape look like? What are the key elements of a successful strategy?

    Melanie Posey, research vice president and general manager, Voice of the Enterprise at 451 Research will delve into the data and strategies IT organizations are implementing to facilitate this strategic shift and arrive at the point where they can focus on helping differentiate their business, rather than merely keeping the lights on.
