  • Questo è il primo episodio di una serie di webinar che illustreranno le diverse modalità in cui AWS viene utilizzato dai team di sviluppo agili. Tutti gli episodi faranno riferimento a una startup impegnata nell'apertura di una nuova area di business, illustrando i vantaggi offerti dall'utilizzo di AWS. La startup puo' essere una nuova realtà o un centro di innovazione all'interno di una azienda esistente, ad esempio per seguire il lancio di un nuovo prodotto.

    In questo episodio vengono descritti i principali vantaggi di AWS per le startup e i team IT agili, soffermandosi su come il team abbia sviluppato rapidamente un prototipo funzionante utilizzando i diversi servizi offerti dalla piattaforma.
  • Openstack has been gaining momentum in the IaaS space for some time now. It is a great example of Open Source collaboration and many contributors (more than 15,000!) coming together to make new technology.

    Often, large vendors and the organisations that represent them are seen as incompatible with the Open Source model, particularly in the storage arena. Big Tin is not required.

    In this presentation Glyn Bowden will show what SNIA can offer the Open Source community, the importance of standards and where SNIA are already contributing.
  • Les "Masterclass" sont une série de webinaires durant lesquels différents services de la plateforme AWS sont présentés sous un angle technique.

    Durant cette session, nous parlerons d'Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), un service utilisé par des centaines de milliers d'utilisateurs d'AWS, et fournissant bien plus que de la capacité de calcul.

    Durant cette session nous survolerons rapidement les concepts de base d'Amazon EC2 pour nous concentrer sur des cas pratiques plus avancés, tels que l'automatisation des déploiements, la configuration, le contrôle des coûts, et les bonnes pratiques d'administration.

    Thèmes abordés :
    • Techniques d'exploitation d'Amazon EC2
    • Fonctionnement des "Amazon Machine Images"
    • Gestion du trafic réseau entre les instances avec Elastic IPs, Elastic Network Interfaces, Security Groups et Network Access Control Lists
    • Métriques d'exploitation avec Amazon CloudWatch
    • Principe de fonctionnement et cas d'utilisation des instances Spot

    Pour qui?
    • Pour les développeurs
    • Pour les architectes, et les administrateurs systèmes qui ont des connaissances de base sur AWS.
  • A modern Hadoop-based data platform is a combination of multiple source projects brought together, tested, and integrated to create an enterprise-grade platform. In this session, we will review the Hadoop projects required in a Windows Hadoop platform and drill down into Hadoop integration and implementation with Windows, Microsoft Azure, and SQL Server.
  • MDM implementations begin by solving the most pressing business problem in a single hub, mostly on-premise. They then expand to another use case, domain, or region, and might evolve to another MDM hub on cloud or in a different country. Whatever the journey might be, how do you tie the different hubs together in a hybrid or federated hub-of-hubs MDM architecture? Come to this session to learn how certain leading companies are solving this conundrum!

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    -What are the initial use cases that dictate MDM
    -How to determine if you should use the same MDM instance or a different one when expanding your use case
    -When to use on-premise versus cloud MDM

    In addition, we will explore examples of companies using hybrid MDM to manage multiple MDM hubs as well as evolving to the holy-grail of MDM architecture: Hub-of-hubs or federated MDM.

  • The C-Suite in every organization is obsessed with the buzz around Big Data and according to industry pundits almost 9 out of 10 organizations today have included this growing trend in their IT plans for 2014. But we all know that when it comes to execution and extracting true business value out of Big Data, only a fraction of the companies are successful. Believe it or not, infrastructure platforms play a key role in demonstrating the power of performance to deliver blazing speed analytics and makes all the difference if you can get a query answered in 3 seconds vs. 3 hours!

    Welcome to the new style of IT and a paradigm shift towards converged infrastructure or as IDC states it as the “3rd platform”, where you are no longer bound by the limitations of your traditional datacenter. Instead of plumbing or retrofitting your existing landscape you now have proven alternatives to augment your legacy environment with leading innovative platforms that are purpose built, seamlessly integrated and can be deployed in days vs. months. Learn from the best practices of some of our customers who have embarked on this journey already and paved the way for handling Big Data!
  • Not every enterprise can adopt or even needs Netflix-style DevOps. Most enterprises have existing applications deployed on-premise on VMware and other infrastructure but recognize the benefits of the public cloud. This webinar will provide a practical guide for enterprises looking to build a real DevOps culture without requiring a re-architecture of their application or their infrastructure. As a result, enterprises will be able to get capacity on-demand for their dev/test environments, spin up multi-tier applications with one click and enable developer self-service.
