    Synopsis:
    To architect a security solution for your Hybrid Cloud we need to first understand which hybrid cloud layers are in use by your organization, then provide a solution that covers all those interfaces. This presentation removes the guess work and allows the security practitioner to concentrate on the necessary layers: a spectrum of security.

  • Performance Management of Virtualized and Cloud Based Applications Performance Management of Virtualized and Cloud Based Applications Bernd Harzog, Analyst, The Virtualization Practice & CEO, APMExperts.com Recorded: Nov 15 2012 42 mins
    The demand for business functionality implemented in software is infinite. This creates an infinitely long applications development backlog. These factors combine to drive innovation in application development processes (Agile) and tools (PHP, Ruby, Python, Node-JS, Scala). As a result of these process and tool innovations more rapidly changing applications are being put into production at a faster rate then ever before. And these rapidly changing applications are being deployed on new dynamic, virtualized, scaled out and distributed infrastructures. The combination of rapid application development and dynamic execution environments create a brand new application performance management challenge. Attendees to this webinar will learn how to approach managing these new types of applications, how to approach tool selection, and how to organize successfully to manage these new applications in production.

    Dynamic and virtualized data centers, private clouds, and public clouds are radically different environments than their static and physical predecessors. These new environments have radically different operating characteristics which create new management challenges. These new management challenges require new process, tools, and organizations. Attendees to this webinar will learn how to approach managing these new environments, how to approach tool selection for these environments, and how to organize to successfully manage these environments.
  • 12 Steps To A Better Virtualized Desktop Service 12 Steps To A Better Virtualized Desktop Service Andrew Wood, Analyst, The Virtualization Practice Recorded: Nov 15 2012 39 mins
    A virtual desktop is a common goal. The functional requirement of that goal – an experience as good as or better than a physical desktop for both the user and the administrator. How do you achieve that?

    In a growing environment of “consumerization of IT” how do you ensure that the delivery of your virtual desktop service is easy to use, effective, and reliable? How does, how will, your virtual desktop environment score as you take 12 steps to a better virtualized desktop service?

  • Big Data: Challenges and Opportunities Big Data: Challenges and Opportunities Peter Judge, TechWeek Europe; Edward Haletky, AstroArch Consulting; Mike Wronski, Reflex Systems; Scott Clinton, Red Hat Recorded: Sep 18 2012 58 mins
    With all of the hype surrounding "big data," some forget that these large sets of structure and unstructured data sets come with big obstacles. Challenges such as storage, search, sharing and analysis are only a few of the issues that need to be addressed before an organization can truly tap into big data's potential. What is the best approach to store these data sets? Which characteristics should be considered when analyzing? These questions and more will be answered by this panel of experts as they discuss how big data may provide real value or if it all is just a bunch of hype.
  • The Complexities of a Secure Hybrid Cloud Reference Architecture The Complexities of a Secure Hybrid Cloud Reference Architecture Edward Haletky, AstroArch Consulting Recorded: Sep 5 2012 49 mins
    The entire data center includes virtual, physical, and hybrid cloud instances, that all need to be secured. When we talk about hybrid clouds, security becomes all about the data and not necessarily the virtualization in which the data resides. Building upon existing thoughts on hybrid cloud security, this presentation provides a reference architecture into which virtualization and physical security products can fit. How to fit each of these products into a hybrid cloud for proper security and management is almost as important as what they do.
