Big Data and Data Management

  • Benefits of Machine Learning in IT Infrastructure
    Benefits of Machine Learning in IT Infrastructure Dan Ortega - Vice President of Marketing Recorded: Apr 21 2017 4 mins
    During the next 5 years, machine learning is poised to play a pivotal and transformational role in how IT Infrastructure is managed. Two key scenarios are possible: transforming infrastructure from a set of under-utilized capital assets to a highly efficient set of operational resources through dynamic provisioning based on consumption; and the identification of configurations, dependencies and the cause/effect of usage patterns through correlation analysis.
    In the world of IT infrastructure, it’s all about efficient use of resources. With on-premise infrastructure (compute, storage and network) utilization rates for most organizations in the low single digits, the cloud has sold the promise of a breakthrough. For those organizations moving to Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), utilization in the middle to high teens is possible, and for those moving to Platform as a Service (PaaS), utilization in the mid-twenties is within reach.
    Dynamic provisioning driven by demand is essentially the same operational concept as power grids and municipal water systems – capacity allocation driven by where resources are consumed, rather than where they are produced.
    The second part of the breakthrough relates to right-sizing infrastructure. Whether this is network capacity or compute Virtual Machine size – machine learning will enable analysis of the patterns of behavior by users and correlate them to the consumption of infrastructure resources.
    During the near term, these benefits will be much more tactical. Automated discovery combined with behavioral correlation analysis will virtually eliminate the need for manual inventory and mapping of components and configuration items in the IT ecosystem to reveal how the ecosystem is operating.
    Today, IT has the opportunity to automate the mapping of components in their infrastructure to provide a more accurate and actionable picture.

  • Best key practices for GDPR and utilizing IncMan™ Incident Response platform
    Best key practices for GDPR and utilizing IncMan™ Incident Response platform Mike Fowler, Vice President, Professional Services and Steve Ditmore, Senior Sales Engineer for DFLabs Apr 26 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The GDPR will apply in all EU member states in May 2018, organizations and businesses that are data owners and/or dealing with data belonging to EU citizens have the responsibility to ensure their processing abides by new data protection law and processors must themselves abide by rules to maintain records of their processing activities. If organizations and businesses are involved in a data breach, they are far more liable under GDPR than they were under the Data Protection Act.

    Complying with the new regulations requires operating to high standards of data security and protection. If suffering a data breach that puts the rights and freedoms of individuals at risk, organizations must notify the people affected and the data protection authority (Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) in the UK) within 72 hours of becoming aware of it. Data breaches occur every day - and the EU have just increased the financial liability and consequences of inadequate security.

    Hear from Mike Fowler, author of the popular white paper: Automation as a Force Multiplier in Cyber Incident Response. Mike will provide insight into how best to leverage automation to provide incident response and reporting consistency for GDPR.

    Steve Ditmore will present IncMan™ – Security Automation and Orchestration features covering:

    •Installation and set-up is measured in hours rather than days or weeks without the need for expensive professional services support.
    •Review steps involved in a mitigating and controlling a data breach.
    •Automation of menial enrichment activities, so incident responders can determine/contain and mitigate breaches more efficiently and effectively.
    •Enhanced visibility creating a layered approach to information gathering.
    •Incident management including response prioritization.
    •How incident and notification workflows are automatically assigned to an incident.
  • How Scale-Out Storage Enables the Next Frontier of Life Sciences Breakthroughs
    How Scale-Out Storage Enables the Next Frontier of Life Sciences Breakthroughs Joel Groen & Dave Kaminsky Apr 26 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Workflows in life sciences and bioinformatics are characterized by massive volumes of machine-generated file data that is pipelined into downstream processes for analysis. With today’s sequencer technology, most experts agree that about 100 GB of data is generated for each human genome that is sequenced.

    With the Earth’s population predicted to eclipse 8 billion people by 2025, some researchers believe that Life Sciences and Genomics in particular will soon become the single largest producer of new data across all media types — outpacing today’s leaders like YouTube, Twitter, and astronomical research.

    Legacy file storage fails to provide researchers with acceptable performance and cost effectiveness at petabyte scale, especially with the wide mix of file sizes that characterizes modern research workflows.

    But it’s not all bad news.

    Balancing researcher, IT, and executive team concerns, watch this video case study about the Department of Embryology at the Carnegie Institution for Science, and see why they turned to Qumulo’s modern scale-out storage to deliver the performance, scalability, and simplicity needed to keep pace with evolving research data requirements.

  • Using Caching in Microservices Architectures
    Using Caching in Microservices Architectures Jagdish Mirani is a Product Marketing Manager in charge of Pivotal’s in-memory products Apr 26 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In this 60 minute webinar, we will cover the key areas of consideration for data layer decisions in a microservices architecture, and how a caching layer, satisfies these requirements. You’ll walk away from this webinar with a better understanding of the following concepts:

    - How microservices are easy to scale up and down, so both the service layer and the data layer need to support this elasticity.
    - Why microservices simplify and accelerate the software delivery lifecycle by splitting up effort into smaller isolated pieces that autonomous teams can work on independently. Event-driven systems promote autonomy.
    - Where microservices can be distributed across availability zones and data centers for addressing performance and availability requirements. Similarly, the data layer should support this distribution of workload.
    - How microservices can be part of an evolution that includes your legacy applications. Similarly, the data layer must accommodate this graceful on-ramp to microservices.

All those who want to become more sustainable in ICT are welcome to join us in this exciting webinar.

    Jean-Marc Alberola, Group Energy Strategy leader at Airbus & Vice Chairman of ETSI ISG OEU (Industry Specification Group Operational Energy Efficiency For Users). Jean-Marc will speak about the work developed by ETSI ISG-OEU, operative KPIs that enable the monitoring of the energy management performance in data centres and ICT sites. After a short description of the global KPI DCEM, the presentation will focus on the implementation of these KPI’s in an industrial area of corporate ICT sites.

    Fadri Casty & Tereza Lévová, both from EcoInvent, , the world's most consistent & transparent Life Cycle Inventory database. The ecoinvent database provides well documented process data for thousands of products, helping you make truly informed decisions about their environmental impact. Fadri and Tereza will demonstrate the value of doing LCA on ICT equipment.

    Berina Delalic, from multEE will introduce the Monitoring & Verification Platform (MVP), a web based tool developed to calculate and store data about energy and CO2 savings resulting from implemented energy efficiency measures. Having in mind central role of ICT especially in the commercial sector, some methods are developed for improving ICT’s energy efficiency, and therefore achieving CO2 emission reduction. The presentation will show how MVP can be used for measuring results from the activities that enable more efficient use of energy for ICT in commercial buildings.

  • Machine Learning and Malware: What You Need to Know
    Machine Learning and Malware: What You Need to Know Robert Leong, Dir, Prod Mgmt., McAfee Labs; Raf Los, Optiv; Dr. Paulo Shakarian; Brandon Dunlap (Moderator) Apr 27 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    The seismic jolt in the Threat Landscape caused by the success of threats like ransomware combined with the geometric rise of so-called zero-day malware (i.e. malware for which no AV signature defenses exist) has given rise to all manner of innovation in the Cybersecurity industry. But a lot of what is being said and presented in the market is really confusing and that’s a problem for practitioners. One of the most-frequently-used phrases in security today is “Machine Learning” or “Math-Based” and “Artificial Intelligence” or “AI”. These phrases are entering the security conversation to describe capabilities, approaches, and strategies, but in reality, they are confusing a great many people. Which begs the question: “What on Earth does it mean?” and “How can Machine Learning be used in Enterprise Security?” Join McAfee and (ISC)2 on April 27, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern as we clear the confusion, explore the answers to these questions and discuss what this means for dealing with threats.
