Cloud Computing - What’s a Job in IT going to be like?

David Griffin - IIS & Dave Carpenter - IIS
Is "Cloud Curator" a new job title?

With every software and service provider repurposing their business around "Cloud", what’s a Job in IT going to be like in the near future? Are we going to still be implementing storage and servers or will we all turn into "systems analysts" simply brokering remote cloud services like a consumer at an app store?

Webinar Topics:

Review of new cloud models
Where these new models came from
Results of this consumerization of technology

The entire IT landscape is changing. Join us to learn why this is happening and the effects on IT business practices.

  • Automation is a powerful tool. It strips time and cost out of processes, minimizes errors, and frees up skilled staff to focus on higher value activities. Most IT teams have already capitalized in some part on automation, and most IT professionals can see the potential in extending automation across the enterprise. But how do you embed automation in the company IT DNA? Where do you start in the journey from script automation towards enterprise-wide process automation?

    In this session you will learn how you can scale automation to an enterprise-level through the adoption of a Center of Excellence. Our proven approach creates a cohesive framework for automation and breaks through silos, so your organization benefits from economies of scale and the advantages that automation brings.

  • The IT industry is currently undergoing one of the most radical disruptions in its history, as traditional data centers are being replaced with cloud computing environments. New workloads such as mobile computing, social networking, and big data analytics are driving the need for a more dynamic, agile approach to enterprise computing. It is most prevalent in the networks within and between modern data centers.

    This presentation will discuss a new approach to application-aware data networking based on open industry standards (the Open Datacenter Interoperable Network, ODIN). In particular, we focus on recent approaches to SDN and NFV which deliver real value in next generation data networks. We will also discuss case studies which demonstrate the value of emerging cloud based, software defined environments.
  • Una vez expandida con éxito la capacidad del centro de datos a Amazon Web Services para los entornos de desarrollo y prueba, el equipo de IT se enfrenta a un nuevo reto en cuanto a la capacidad, es decir, cómo almacenar la cada vez mayor cantidad de datos generados por las aplicaciones empresariales y mantener los costes a la baja. Además, también se enfrentan al reto de mantener copias de seguridad de esos datos de manera adecuada.

    Este capítulo aborda ambas cuestiones con servicios como Amazon S3 y Amazon Glacier.

  • Dell Active Infrastructure & VDI Explained Webinar Recorded: Feb 21 2013 59 mins
    The Dell difference

    IT organizations evaluating converged infrastructure
    solutions today are stuck choosing from undesirable
    closed, complex, incomplete and/or expensive options.
    Dell fills a gap in the market for advanced data center
    infrastructure platforms that are simple, flexible and

    Dell’s framework is compatible with existing data center
    architectures while allowing flexibility for the future, and
    doesn’t lock our customers into a proprietary model like
    some offerings. Some competitive solutions are built to
    operate in a single way, may not support customer needs
    over time and require complex integration with existing
    management offerings.

    VDI is a significant feature of the Dell Active Infrastructure. VDI and VDS (Virtualization Desktop Services) will be EXPLAINED! Join us for this informative WEBINAR.

  • Cutting IT Costs Have Never Been Easier Recorded: Nov 29 2011 54 mins
    The average enterprise uses 70% of its IT budget to maintain its physical infrastructure. As the industry's leading virtualization software, VMware vSphere™ can cut overall IT costs by up to 70%—allowing more resources to be allocated toward innovation and improving business operations.

    In addition to having a low total cost of ownership, VMware vSphere also simplifies operations, delivers improved performance and ensures high availability of services. VMware is fundamentally changing how enterprises manage, deploy and deliver IT.

    Webinar Details:

    Maximize your current resources
    Consolidating your servers allows you to combine infrastructure resources and break the traditional model of only having one application per server.

    Increase availability of hardware and applications
    Securely back up and migrate entire virtual environments without interruptions in service. This improves business continuity by eliminating planned downtime and immediately recovering from unplanned issues.

    Improve operational flexibility and responsiveness
    Dynamically scale to respond to unpredictable market changes and user demands. The ability to provision servers faster allows administrators to spend more time focusing on business needs.

    Take the first step on the path to cloud computing
    Virtualizing your infrastructure is the beginning of the journey to the cloud. Cloud computing provides additional cost savings and results in a zero-touch infrastructure with full automation across the board.
  • RealCloud Ready Assessment Survey Benchmarking Results Recorded: Nov 10 2011 44 mins

    RealCloud defines a core set of capabilities that your organization needs to take advantage of cloud. By understanding these capabilities and your current environment you can define a rational cloud strategy.

    - RealCloud creates a map for implementing cloud
    - Allows you to focus on the right projects
    - Thinks beyond just technology to people and process to enable the organization

    RealCloud progresses through fives stages. Traditional IT begins the journey and builds toward cloud as virtualization is implemented. A stage approach starts with the reality of today and moves toward cloud.

    Why the 5 stages are important:
    Change does not happen overnight. A progressive approach to change is manageable and enables key investments over time.

    - Foundations in today’s realities allow for better planning of next steps
    - Roadmap to the future allows for better planning of current projects
    - Maturity builds over time
