Bringing together the best IT minds to shape cloud computing's future
The Open Data Center AllianceSM is working actively to shape the future of cloud computing — a future based on open, interoperable standards. Our membership includes more than 300 companies spanning multiple continents and industries. We welcome companies who share our vision of seamless, secure cloud computing.
The Security of Big Data: An Enterprise PerspectiveIan Lamont, BMW GroupEveryone knows that there are risks associated with moving enterprise data to a Cloud and everyone knows the huge potential that the analytics of Big Data can bring especially when using the Cloud, but what happens when these two converge.
The presentation will discuss some of the security and privacy challenges associated with Big Data in the Cloud and will present a number of key initiatives that the ODCA have done to support enterprises that wish to take this step.Read more >
Everyone knows that there are risks associated with moving enterprise data to a Cloud and everyone knows the huge potential that the analytics of Big Data can bring especially when using the Cloud, but what happens when these two converge.
The presentation will discuss some of the security and privacy challenges associated with Big Data in the Cloud and will present a number of key initiatives that the ODCA have done to support enterprises that wish to take this step.
Build and manage a Cloud ecosystem that can deliver financial and performance benefits:
Learn how a powerful combination of cloud, global delivery model and Infosys Cloud Ecosystem Hub solution can deliver a trusted cloud ecosystem for your enterprise.
The Open Data Center Alliance Cloud Maturity Model (CMM) provides an end-to-end visualization for how the use of cloud in the enterprise develops over time (adoption roadmap) and how the enterprise’s ability to adopt cloud-based services within defined governance and control parameters increases.
As it matures, the use of cloud becomes more sophisticated, comprehensive, and optimized. The CMM plots the progression of structured cloud service integration from a baseline of no cloud use through five progressive levels of maturity.
This presentation will walk attendees through the maturity model that the ODCA has developed and how they can apply this model to their organization creating a comprehensive plan to fully integrate cloud into their operations.
Service orchestration is a paradigm that supports cloud providers in arranging, coordinating, and managing computing resources as a system of components and automated workflows that can be delivered as cloud services to cloud consumers. The scope of this involves three types of system components—the service layer, the resource abstraction and control layer, and the physical resource layer—which are the underlying foundations of the cloud provider’s offerings provided in a service catalog.
This webinar discusses content from the document, “ODCA Master Usage Model: Service Orchestration.” The session illustrates the usage model for service discovery and orchestration for cloud services. This usage model includes the components, repositories, data structures, conversation maps, and workflows that assist a cloud consumer in defining required services, and the associated cloud provider to orchestrate services to meet objectives determined by the cloud subscriber and for the appropriate context of use. It defines automation required for orchestration that includes programmatic interfaces, interaction patterns, control interfaces, and lifecycle management.
The dynamic and flexible nature of cloud and software defined networking has compelling benefits, but it makes visibility and control of Service levels harder. For example: it’s hard to debug a performance issue in this fluid environment. It is for this reason that ODCA’s usage model on Software defined networking clearly highlights the requirement of monitoring and diagnostics of the service levels. EMC’s SMARTS technologies will solve this very problem. In this webinar EMC will discuss their SMARTS technology and how it addresses the monitoring and diagnostics requirements of the software defined networking usage model publication by the ODCA.
Join this session to discuss the Scale-Out Storage Master Usage Model and usage scenarios. This session will also cover best practices for adopting the ODCA requirements outlined in the usage model document.
Chris will discuss the Software Defined Networking marketplace and introduce CohesiveFT and their VNS3 solution. The seminar will delve into mapping to ODCA SDN usage model requirements and usage scenarios.
The ODCA worked with members to execute proof-of-concept (PoC) testing to investigate and validate the ODCA Usage Model: Carbon Footprint and Energy Efficiency. This panel discussion with the PoC authors will give an in-depth look at the test results and provide an opportunity to ask questions.
The Carbon Footprint and Energy Efficiency usage model describes a framework for determining the overall carbon footprint associated with cloud services. The combination of this framework and the ODCA Usage: Standard Units of Measure for IaaS provides enterprises a standard, verifiable method to measure and assess the amount of CO2 created as a by-product of their data center operations.
