  • Enterprises around the world have embraced OpenStack as their cloud management platform because of its ability to simply and effectively manage shared infrastructure. To quickly realize OpenStack's benefits, rapid deployment of a production cloud that delivers mixed workload capabilities on a solid and dependable foundation is critical.

    Join this webinar to learn how agile infrastructure for OpenStack enables you to quickly stand up a dynamic self-service cloud infrastructure so you can easily take advantage of the flexibility, scalability, and efficiency of OpenStack.

    Attendees will leave with a better understanding of how Agile Infrastructure:

    - Extends the core values of cloud: scale, guaranteed performance, automation, high availability and efficiency
    - Ensures you deploy OpenStack using a process that's repeatable and error free
    - Allows you to run production and test/dev workloads on one storage platform
    - Provides higher utilization, better performance and more operational efficiency than legacy solutions

  • Security incident disclosures and vulnerability warnings are being released at an alarming rate, posing a major challenge for Security & Risk (S&R) Professionals. Additionally, firms that adopt virtualized and public cloud infrastructure like AWS are quickly finding that their traditional vulnerability management solutions and processes were not designed for these dynamic, elastic, and API-services centric architectures. An April, 2015 Forrester Research, Inc. report entitled “Market Overview: Vulnerability Management” stated that the vulnerability management technology space has evolved and will help " S&R Pros repair their strained or broken processes and move past low-impact checkbox scanning to proactive, risk-based assessments."

    Join guest speakers Rick Holland, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, Tim Prendergast, CEO and Co-founder, Evident.io, and Theodore Kim, Senior Director, SaaS Operations at Jobvite, to learn about:
    * The state of vulnerability management and why Forrester recently said "security and risk pros can't keep up with the tsunami of vulnerabilities."
    * How public cloud infrastructure like AWS adds to vulnerability complexity and has created the the need for new cloud native solutions
    * How Jobvite has implemented an effective security configuration and vulnerability management process for AWS
  • Cybersecurity is a top concern for IT professionals. Gartner expert Lawrence Orans leads an important discussion of the current cybersecurity landscape. He analyzes recent cybersecurity events, emerging threats, and how new technologies are affecting the security calculus.
  • In 2015, the 3rd Platform will account for one third of global ICT spending and 100% of spending growth," said Frank Gens, Senior Vice President and Chief Analyst at IDC. "The industry is now entering the most critical period yet in the 3rd Platform era: the 'Innovation Stage.' Over the next several years, we expect to see an explosion of innovation and value creation on top of the 3rd Platform's foundation. This stage will be driven by a new wave of core technologies – Innovation Accelerators – that radically extend the 3rd Platform's capabilities and applications across all industries."
    In this webinar, you'll learn about the 3rd platform and it's implications for Storage systems. In particular, you'll hear about Smart Data Storage systems which provide the low cost scaling, geo-distribution and multi-tenancy which the 3rd platform requires.

  • Kill DevOps. Go Outside-In-Ops, and Kill that too Nov 18 2015 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Mark Smalley, The IT Paradigmologist
    While organisations have used multidisciplinary approaches such as Agile and DevOps to improve the quality of, and speed with which , new functionality is developed and deployed, no value is actually realised until users use information and technology effectively and efficiently.

  • The Zen of Support! Oct 14 2015 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet
    The words “Customer Support” and “Customer Service” accurately describe the role of Service Desk and Desktop Support Professionals.
