The Infrastructure as a Service space is rapidly expanding, but is it evolving to meet your needs? Google Compute Engine was designed to help users build, scale, and analyze quickly on the same infrastructure that powers the most advanced and innovative technology in the world. Learn what happens when the cloud gets a little more Googley.
Hybrid Cloud seems to many to be the obvious choice. No as insecure or inefficient as public cloud, nor as expensive or restrictive as private cloud. Yet is it really all its hyped up to be? And what of the alternatives?
Join this expert panel as they discuss:
- Is your cloud truly private? Is it truly Hybrid?
- Is virtualisation masquerading as the cloud?
- As companies abandon their private clouds, is public the future?
- Is 2014 the year of Hybrid?
- Is Hybrid getting smarter? Is hardware catching up?
Attend this interactive session, ask your questions, voice your opinion and discover whether Hybrid cloud will truly be the future for your organisation, or just a load of hot air.
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.
The word cloud is much over used, and the debate continues as to whether it should be cloud, or cloud computing. In either case, the main focus is on how the cloud computing market is evolving and where should enterprise customers invest their money? Ovum has conducted many surveys and the results indicate the move toward hybrid cloud computing is fast becoming the top choice for many enterprise customers.
Join Roy Illsley for this webinar and discover why cloud computing is evolving and how it fits in with a wider IT transformation agenda. Roy will share the results of Ovum's latest global adoption survey and discuss the importance of the findings. The key adjacent technologies and the impact on cloud computing will also be explored. Attend and learn how you can put IT transformation and cloud computing in to context.
By extending your data center with cloud resources, it can become more flexible, more scalable and more elastic. But how can it be done?

In this Web Event we will share three business use cases for a chargeback solution for situations like:
• The end user which uses private or hybrid service and needs to know their Cloud costs as well as the consumption
• A budget/department manager who needs to closely monitor their staff Cloud services and costs
• An IT Cloud service architect who needs to monitor demand and costs in order to suggest price changes or introduce new services
We will show how chargeback and show back help recover costs for IT resources, how role-based control drives cost transparency and how this simple solution is key to chargeback success and buy-in from business users and IT administrators.

Over the course of the last 15-20 years, “industry experts” have been proclaiming the death of the mainframe. The reality is that the mainframe continues to thrive and grow and house the majority of the world’s most critical business data.
The real issue we are beginning to experience is a shortage of skills for managing the mainframe. Mainframe DBAs are aging and retiring and new talent is not being trained quick enough. The new generation of IT professionals has a completely different way of thinking and working. The i(Pad,Pod, and Phone) generation has no interest in the acronyms TSO or ISPF. In order for these up and coming professionals to manage the mainframe they will require a new toolset geared towards their way of thinking.
In this webcast, we’ll provide real life examples of z/OS systems management for the next gen mainframe. We’ll also discuss how an integrated role based workspace can help you simply and effectively manage tasks like identifying DB2 performance bottlenecks or performing complex migrations.
Hybrid cloud technologies are transforming the way we deliver applications to customers and employees, but organisations continue to have challenges connecting customers to applications and content. Global customers suffer from network latencies and bottlenecks which impact the user experience. Furthermore, in the race to build out high-performance applications, enterprises often buy more compute capacity than they need, because it is difficult to predict the rate of customer adoption, leading to high costs and inflexible infrastructure.
Join Paul Wallace of Riverbed Technology, and learn how to:
* Right-size your cloud resources and keep control of your costs
* Turn distance and location into a competitive advantage
* Mobilise your cloud with the industry's first ADC-as-a-Service solution

As organizations move to virtualize their environments they must rethink how the secure their data. Encryption will play a key role in protection of data as perimeter defences become less relevant and traditional security mechanisms struggle to keep threats at bay.
Join your fellow professionals for a best practice session, to first learn the detail on how encryption is expanding as organizations or all shapes and sizes, and from a wide range of industries, migrate to virtual environments. Then discuss several key management best practices to complete "the keychain" for organizations considering a move to the cloud. Finally we look at specific use cases to demonstrate the use of these best practices for encryption and key management in the enterprise.

To address insider security threats, many organizations deploy data loss prevention (DLP) solutions. Often, the scope of the process and policies are overwhelming to accommodate every scenario. Administrators quickly find it impossible to accurately identify every type of sensitive document, as well as predict the behavior of every type of user. As a result, some businesses deploy their DLP systems in “watch-mode”, where they monitor for behavior, but don’t realize the true benefits of actually preventing data loss.
McAfee DLP leverages TITUS Classification metadata to set active DLP policy and improve policy inforcement. Join TITUS and McAfee for a discussion about:
•Why it is crucial to include users as the first line of defense
•How DLP, NDLP, and ESM leverage TITUS
•And the role of TITUS Classification in the DLP architecture
One of the more challenging aspects of cloud adoption is identifying if an application is a good fit for cloud, and what cloud is the best. Gravitant has taken their extensive knowledge and developed a wizard-based tool that determines the business value of moving to the cloud, the amount of effort it will take to make the application cloud ready and what type of cloud is the best fit for this particular app. Join us to learn more about the key criteria to consider when assessing an application and how we enable IT to assist the business in this determination.
Although NTP reflection/amplification attacks have been observed in the wild for many years, recent high-profile attacks have drawn more attention to them. In this webinar, a member of the Arbor Security Engineering and Response Team (ASERT) will conduct a deep dive into some recent NTP attacks. Network-scalable best practices for detection, classification, trace-back and mitigation of high-impact attacks, ranging from the tens of Mbps up to more than 300 Gbps in size, will be addressed.
