  • Enterprises around the world have embraced OpenStack as their cloud management platform because of its ability to simply and effectively manage shared infrastructure. To quickly realize OpenStack's benefits, rapid deployment of a production cloud that delivers mixed workload capabilities on a solid and dependable foundation is critical.

    Join this webinar to learn how agile infrastructure for OpenStack enables you to quickly stand up a dynamic self-service cloud infrastructure so you can easily take advantage of the flexibility, scalability, and efficiency of OpenStack.

    Attendees will leave with a better understanding of how Agile Infrastructure:

    - Extends the core values of cloud: scale, guaranteed performance, automation, high availability and efficiency
    - Ensures you deploy OpenStack using a process that's repeatable and error free
    - Allows you to run production and test/dev workloads on one storage platform
    - Provides higher utilization, better performance and more operational efficiency than legacy solutions
  • Realistic planning assumptions are an important element in a business continuity program. Why? They enable the planning team to identify the parameters they’re expecting to encounter following a disaster. They aren’t “pie-in-the-sky” wish lists but rather they’re the planner’s best guess about the conditions that will exist. Smart assumptions are usually unfavorable conditions, such as the lack of electric power or the unavailability of key people. Not-so-smart planning assumptions rely on best-case conditions that are probably not realistic.

  • Business Continuity! Disaster Recovery! We’ve all heard these terms, often used interchangeably. It seems there are more and more so-called “experts” out there… and more and more ‘noise’. This critical topic does not have to be complicated or confusing. Come share the perspectives of a pragmatic global thought leader who’s not just talked about it but who’s owned a global program, and whose plans have been proven in actual events. There is value for the experienced practitioner as well as the non-expert executive or manager who has to understand the concepts in plain English. Concepts covered include:

    •How Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, Crisis Management and related topics are all part of holistic Business Resiliency – the ability of an organization to withstand stress from impact – and how they are interrelated
    •A brief history lesson of where it’s been and where it’s going, to chart the trajectory from the current path
    •What it is, and more importantly, what it is not, for example it’s not ‘Insurance’ and it’s not ‘The Big “Code Red” Binder’ (in fact, it’s not a binder at all!)
    •How to understand and communicate the value in business terms not ‘scary-speak’
    •The essential parts of a comprehensive program and what “Good” looks like for all of them
    •Some best practices that even experienced planners sometimes ignore
    •What does the future look like?
  • Continuity planning is simply the good business practice of ensuring the execution of essential functions through all circumstances, and it is a fundamental responsibility of public institutions and private entities responsible to their stakeholders. Continuity planning should not be a separate and compartmentalized function performed by independent cells of a few planners in each organization. Organizations must fully integrate continuity into all aspects of an organization’s daily operations, thus creating a “culture of continuity.”

    The COOP presentation will:

    1. Provide an understanding of Continuity Planning and Risk Management,
    2. Explain the importance of a viable Continuity capability,
    3. Emphasize the need for a viable Continuity capability in all organizations that enable organizations to continue their essential functions across a broad spectrum of emergencies.

    In addition to providing an overview of Continuity of Operations, the COOP presentation will also:

     Educate Federal, State, territorial, tribal, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations, and emergency management practitioners on the importance of integrating Continuity into daily operations, functions, plans, and mission areas.
     Emphasize the Federal Government’s Policy requiring Federal agencies to be prepared for unpredictable threats such as earthquakes, accidents, sabotage, and terrorism. 
     Discuss the importance for State, territorial, tribal, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations to be prepared for unpredictable disruption of business operations. 
     Provide States, territories, tribes, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations, and businesses with assistance, guidance, knowledge, networking, resources, and tools needed to succeed.
  • Join us and business continuity expert, Jon Toigo for a practical discussion on effectively leveraging cloud services for your data protection and backup strategies. Toigo, the prolific author of thousands of articles and 17 tech-related books, emphasizes local storage of critical data combined with a low cost, off-site storage option that includes cloud storage.

    You’ll also see ways to easily connect your data protection efforts to leading cloud services, such as Amazon Web Services’ Storage Gateway and low-cost S3 services.
