  • Rethink Load Balancing: 7 Considerations Before Your Next Refresh
    Rethink Load Balancing: 7 Considerations Before Your Next Refresh Ashish Shah Recorded: Oct 13 2017 44 mins
    Applications in your data center, and your IT operations, demand agile, cost-effective load balancing solutions. Traditional ADC (application delivery controller) vendors such as F5 Networks or Citrix NetScaler have done little to address the needs of modern applications and cloud-native use cases. Instead, they force you down the path of expensive and inflexible hardware refreshes without addressing the fundamental challenges of elasticity, automation, hybrid-cloud use, and cost.

    Learn how Avi Networks delivers flexible application services beyond load balancing, including:

    • Application analytics and visibility
    • Predictive autoscaling
    • Automation in private data centers or the public cloud.
  • Security by Design – Modernizing Technology Governance
    Security by Design – Modernizing Technology Governance Tim Sandage, Sr. Security Partner Strategist, AWS Recorded: Oct 12 2017 33 mins
    Up-front design of your cloud environment can be done in a way that creates a reliably secure and controlled environment no matter how the AWS resources are used. This session will focus on "Security by Design" principles and show how an AWS environment can be configured to provide a reliable operational security control capability across, such as:

    - Organizational governance
    - Asset inventory and control
    - Logical access controls
    - Operating system configuration
    - Database security
    - Applications security configurations

    Why this session:

    Cloud Computing is becoming the new normal, the question isn’t “if” anymore, it’s really just “how fast can we move?” and “what are we going to move first”

    Because of this trend organizations need to understand their security and compliance capabilities and shared responsibilities for security as they migrate resources to the cloud. Whether its clinical trial simulations with Bristol Myers-Squibb, who uses AWS to run clinical trial simulations for 64% less cost; in 1.2 hours vs. 60 hours or Galata Chemicals who are running their development and test workloads in the cloud. Organizations need to start with a “Secure by Design approach, which support security at scale as they increase their use of cloud resources.”

  • The Frontline Is Everywhere: New Perspectives on Defense in Depth
    The Frontline Is Everywhere: New Perspectives on Defense in Depth Brian Anderson, Director of Security Product Management Oct 18 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    As today’s businesses come under attack from increasingly malicious cyber threats, a traditional “defense in depth” strategy may become insufficient to effectively fend off attackers and prevent business disruptions and downtime. As mobility, IoT, and BYOD open new attack vectors and attacks become more sophisticated, the situation only worsens. While 100% prevention is impossible, rapid identification and containment is not.

In this live webinar, TierPoint Director of Security Product Management, Brian Anderson will discuss why we need to redefine defense in depth approaches to safeguard data from emerging threats.

Join Brian as he shares insight into the following key considerations when developing a better, more comprehensive security strategy:

    • The implications of the disappearing network edge.
    • Why a traditional “defense in depth” approach, while still a good start, is no longer sufficient
    • Keys to rapid identification and containment
    • How visibility, detection, escalation, and automated response help close the loop
  • Using Containers for Hybrid Cloud & Cloud Migration
    Using Containers for Hybrid Cloud & Cloud Migration Amir Jerbi, CTO and co-founder at Aqua Security Oct 18 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The main benefits of containers vary from speed of development and deployment to scalability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness – which is what made containers so popular today. But the ability to move containerized applications among different environments, from a public to private cloud for example, is one of the most important benefits of containers, making them enterprise favorites for cloud migration and hybrid cloud architectures.
    In this webinar, we will talk about how to use containers in a hybrid cloud, specifically:
    1.How containers make it easy to migrate and move applications between clouds
    2.What architectural considerations and tooling you need to achieve portability
    3.How to ensure consistency of control, security, and compliance across container cloud deployments
  • All things logging for Kubernetes on AWS
    All things logging for Kubernetes on AWS Colin Hom, CoreOS Oct 18 2017 6:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    This webinar will show how to set up an ELK (elasticsearch-logstash-kibana) logging stack on top of a Tectonic Kubernetes cluster. These three components work together to provide a solid logging, searching, and visualization of your infrastructure's data logs. We'll split this webinar into 3 segments to teach how to deploy the stack, how to query your log data, and how to integrate the ELK stack with Tectonic's cloud-native tools.

    Part I: Deploy the stack
    This involves three new components which will be deployed on the cluster: Elasticsearch statefulset, Fluentd daemonset, and Kibana.

    Part II: Querying log data
    Next, we'll look at how to effectively reference Kubernetes metadata when querying log objects in stored in Elasticsearch, and some common patterns in querying Kubernetes logs and gaining visiblity into various cluster components and/or deployed applications.

    Part III: EFK/ELK cluster logging on tectonic
    Finally, we will address how to deploy the ELK stack optimally on top of Tectonic.

  • Span Private and Public Clouds: Developing a Multi-Cloud Strategy with SDS
    Span Private and Public Clouds: Developing a Multi-Cloud Strategy with SDS Eric Carter, Sr. Director Product Management at Hedvig Oct 18 2017 8:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    How can enterprise IT operate more like AWS? That is the defining technology question of the decade. Hyperscale computing models pioneered by AWS catapulted “cloud” to the top of the IT agenda. This model fuels digital business, creates tectonic shifts in IT spending, and upends legacy IT infrastructure vendors. But should today’s CIOs build or buy their own cloud? The simple answer: both. We live in a multi-cloud world. A hyperscale strategy balances digital services across private and public clouds.

    In this session we'll provide:
    -Lessons learned from building two of the world’s largest distributed systems: Amazon Dynamo and Facebook's Cassandra.
    -How to develop a multi-cloud strategy for modern data centers that accommodates both virtualized and containerized applications.
    -Where software-defined storage fits into this strategy to help data span cloud boundaries and avoid cloud lock-in.
