  • How CloudCheckr Makes 1.7 Million EC2 Decisions Easy
    How CloudCheckr Makes 1.7 Million EC2 Decisions Easy Todd Bernhard, Product Marketing Manager, CloudCheckr Recorded: May 25 2017 20 mins
    Choosing to move to the Cloud is a great decision, but it’s the first of many more decisions. You have to choose from 70 instance types, with 14 purchase options, running your choice of 4 operating systems, across dozens of availability zones and regions with distinct choices for tenancy and block storage. When you add it up, there are over a million options. In fact, Gartner has calculated that the number of decisions just for deploying an EC2 instance is over 1.7 million.

    It’s easy to make the wrong decisions and spend too much or be underprepared to meet demand. There’s only one way to make such decisions reliably and efficiently and that is to automate and follow best practices. In this in-depth discussion and demonstration, Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager, will show how to use CloudCheckr's Best Practices tool to manage costs.

    Join us for a "Deep Dive" into some of the 450+ Best Practice Checks offered by CloudCheckr to:

    - Make sure you are not paying for unused resources

    - Ensure the resources you are indeed using are being used at a high level of utilization

    - Identify areas where you can save money

    Performance Testing of Business Process Management Platforms: Vizuri Case Study Kenneth Spokas, Technical Director, Vizuri & Phil Simpson, Principal Product Marketing Manager, Red Hat Recorded: May 25 2017 53 mins
    Assessing performance of a general and flexible business process management (BPM) products and solutions is challenging. It's notoriously difficult to assess, measure, and accurately predict how a product or solution will scale under normal use and load. Each user's unique business requirements and specific implementation design must be taken into account.

    Red Hat has partnered with Vizuri, an IT consulting firm, to provide you with a performance test tool for any BPM framework or process server. The BPM performance test tool can be used to model and assess many different scenarios simulating a set of reusable resources. The results will be a uniform performance evaluation that accounts for as much end-user process design and implementation variability as feasible.

    Join this webcast to learn more about this tool through a case study on Red Hat® JBoss® BPM Suite.

    - Configure host settings to harden and protect it from unauthorized access
    - Install and configure a Docker Engine with minimal attack surface
    - Ensure that the host has the necessary integration with existing enterprise systems like SIEM and enterprise directories
  • HDFS on Kubernetes: Lessons Learned
    HDFS on Kubernetes: Lessons Learned Kimoon Kim, Engineer, Pepperdata Jun 1 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    There is growing interest in running Spark natively on Kubernetes (see https://github.com/apache-spark-on-k8s/spark). Spark applications often access data in HDFS, and Spark supports HDFS locality by scheduling tasks on nodes that have the task input data on their local disks. When running Spark on Kubernetes, if the HDFS daemons run outside Kubernetes, applications will slow down while accessing the data remotely.

    In this webinar, we will demonstrate how to run HDFS inside Kubernetes to speed up Spark. In particular, we will show:

    - Spark scheduler can still provide HDFS data locality on Kubernetes by discovering the mapping of Kubernetes containers to physical nodes to HDFS datanode daemons.

    - How one can provide Spark with the high availability of the critical HDFS namenode service when running HDFS in Kubernetes.
  • Turning the Table on Hackers and Breaches
    Turning the Table on Hackers and Breaches Jason Hart, CTO of Data Protection at Gemalto Jun 6 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Data breaches in 2016 got even more personal with big hacks of adult entertainment sites and social media databases. Hackers mined these for gold, in other words, valuable data to create social engineering attacks, ransom operations and identity theft. According to Gemalto’s Breach Level Index, the number of stolen, compromised or lost records increase by 86% in 2016, while the number of breaches decreased by 4%. Hackers are going after more data than ever before, and they are finding it in large databases that are left relatively insecure.

    Whether consciously or not, hackers have grasped the idea of situational awareness. They have figured out how to exploit these golden opportunities by keeping a pulse on what is going on. It seems too simple to be true, but it goes back to the age-old principle of information is power. Getting the information comes from being aware of one’s surroundings. To become situationally aware, companies need to change their mindset- building a walled garden isn’t an option anymore. During the webinar, we will look at the major data breach trends and findings from 2016 and discuss how this information can help develop your situational awareness. Join us as we cover topics like:

    -What we can learn from Jason Bourne about knowing one’s surroundings
    -What we can learn from hackers to better protect valuable data
    -What we as security professionals can do by going back to the basics of accountability, integrity, auditability, availability and confidentiality
    -How to change our mindset in a new era of a hacker driven gold rush

    You will discover how:

    - Performance management is no longer just about monitoring CPU, memory and disk resources
    - When a user complains that "Citrix is slow", it is not always a Citrix issue
    - Built-in tools provided in the Citrix stack are useful, but not always sufficient for managing performance end-to-end
    - Virtual desktops are VMs, but you can't confidently use monitoring tools you've used for virtual servers to monitor virtual desktops
    - You don't always have to involve your experts in problem diagnosis
    - Performance management is more than just about troubleshooting problems
    - You shouldn’t worry about performance management just after you have deployed the Citrix infrastructure
