  • Using Predictive Analytics to optimize Application operations: Can you dig it? Using Predictive Analytics to optimize Application operations: Can you dig it? Lesley-Anne Wilson, Group Product Rollout & Support Engineer, Digicel Group Recorded: Jul 22 2016 23 mins
    Many studies have been done on the benefits of Predictive Analytics on customer engagement in order to change customer behaviour. However, the side less romanticized is the benefit to IT operations as it is sometimes difficult to turn the focus from direct revenue impacting gain to the more indirect revenue gains that can come from optimization and pro-active issue resolution.

    I will be speaking, from an application operations engineers perspective, on the benefits to the business of using Predictive Analytics to optimize applications.

  • Save More Than 50 Percent on Your Migration to Cloud by Rightsizing Save More Than 50 Percent on Your Migration to Cloud by Rightsizing Chris Schin, Vice President, Products Recorded: Jul 21 2016 28 mins
    Join this webinar to see how the CloudPhysics Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer identifies opportunities to lower your costs of running applications on the public cloud.

    The Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer automatically identifies on-premises virtual machines (VMs) that are over-provisioned with more resources (such as CPU and memory) than they use. This lets you optimize instance matching to the ideal cloud instances. Rightsizing reveals the verifiable cost of running workloads in the cloud. Now you can answer the question, “will we save money by migrating applications to the cloud?”

    This webinar shows how Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer collects resource utilization data from each VM on a fine-grained basis, and then analyzes those data across time to discover the VM’s actual resource needs. Imagine an on-premises VM configured with 8 vCPUs: if the Rightsizer shows that it has never used more than 2 vCPUs, you can Rightsize that VM to a smaller instance in the cloud, saving substantial funds.

  • Hyperconverged – What is it, What it can do and How the Enterprise is using it Hyperconverged – What is it, What it can do and How the Enterprise is using it Eric Slack, Sr. Analyst, Evaluator Group Recorded: Jul 20 2016 44 mins
    Hyperconverged infrastructures combine compute and storage components into a modular, scale-out platform that typically includes a hypervisor and some comprehensive management software. The technology is usually sold as self-contained appliance modules running on industry-standard server hardware with internal HDDs and SSDs. This capacity is abstracted and pooled into a shared resource for VMs running on each module or ‘node’ in the cluster. Hyperconverged infrastructures are sold as stand-alone appliances or as software that companies or integrators can use to build their own compute environments for private or hybrid clouds, special project infrastructures or departmental/remote office IT systems.

    Learning Objectives
    Understand what hyperconvergence is – and is not
    Understand the capabilities this technology can bring
    Discussion of where this technology is going
    How and where it is being used in the Enterprise

  • Application-Defined Data Center: The Next Stop in Datacenter Evolution Application-Defined Data Center: The Next Stop in Datacenter Evolution Jay Lyman, 451 Research and Sushil Kumar, Robin Systems Jul 26 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Applications - the lifeblood of modern business - can be in a sorry state of affairs given today's forced alignment with server, OS, and storage boundaries. This can not only cause deployment delays and complexity, but it also results in underutilized hardware and inflated operational costs. There is a drive to embrace new technologies and methodologies in the enterprise, but this presents significant challenges. Limited application-awareness at the infrastructure level makes it nearly impossible to deliver on the promised SLAs and the tight coupling of applications and underlying operating software (OS or hypervisors) compromises application portability as well as developer productivity.

    A growing number of enterprises are turning to application containers to support more efficient and effective development and deployment in an application-centric IT paradigm. By abstracting applications from the underlying infrastructure, containers can simplify application deployment, and enable seamless portability across machines and clouds. Containers can also enable significant cost savings by consolidating multiple applications per machine without compromising performance or predictability. Join us to learn more about container adoption in the enterprise and how a container-based server and storage virtualization environment can help take your software-defined datacenter transformation to the next level of an application-defined datacenter.
  • Shift-Left Performance Testing for Shift-Forward Quality Shift-Left Performance Testing for Shift-Forward Quality Nathan Devoll, SV Consultant, CA Technologies Jul 26 2016 6:30 pm UTC 75 mins
    Traditional performance testing typically requires that all components of the application are “completed,” integrated and deployed into an appropriate environment. This results in testing not being done until late in the delivery cycle or sometimes skipped entirely. Which can then lead to a less then optimal user experience, expensive rework and potential loss of business.

    Many organizations are adopting service virtualization to overcome the key challenges associated with performance testing. During this session see why and specifically how service virtualization:
    •Enables you to do testing early in the dev cycle by simulating unavailable production systems and missing components
    •Helps you control the inputs (like response times and 3rd party system responses) so you can do more negative and exploratory testing
    •Provisions performance test environments “in a box” for on-demand testing
    •Works with CA APM so that you can monitor an app during a load and performance test and see how the app reacts

    Cities around the world are transforming their increasingly congested landscapes into safer, smarter, and more sustainable environments that better serve their residents and visitors alike. These “smart cities”, are enabling a continuous exchange of information between devices, infrastructure, networks and people, creating immense possibilities for the broader Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem and the communications industry.

    Here in the U.S., recent partnerships between the Federal government and private industry are helping to advance smart city solutions and deployments including the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Smart City Challenge and the recently announced White House Advanced Wireless Research Initiative. We’re just scratching the surface of the innovations to come.

    But what truly makes a city smart? What applications and solutions are currently being deployed and what more will be developed? What types of critical network infrastructure needs to exist in order to enable a more connected society? What role will fiber, sensors, LPWANs, densified small cells and DAS, massive MIMO, and other solutions play as these networks deploy? How can we protect the data being transmitted around the city? What lessons have been learned thus far and are there business opportunities and models to support expectations of market growth? And how best can local governments and citizens be educated to understand the importance of smart city initiatives and potential return on investment?

    Speakers from AT&T and SAP will delve into these questions and more during the live webcast. We also welcome your questions, so get ready to bring them into the mix.

  • Transparent Footprints: Optimizing HPC Workloads with Colocated Infrastructure Transparent Footprints: Optimizing HPC Workloads with Colocated Infrastructure Rui Gomes (RVX), Leigh Huntridge (Avere), and Jorge Balcells (Verne Global) Aug 3 2016 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Facing build or lease options for their rendering farm and storage, RVX, a growing special effects studio in Iceland, needed to factor high-performance demand and environmental impact into their cost analysis. As they weighed their options, a plan formed with the help of two providers.

    Rui Gomes, chief technology officer at RVX had challenging projects ahead that demanded seamless access to storage resources to render films like 'Everest'. Their needs were quickly outpacing their capacity in their in-house data centre and moving to a cloud service was not an option due to the content needed to remain in a controlled environment. He faced the decision to grow what he owned or look at colocation options that could handle his high performance computing (HPC) needs for complex rendering workflows. In the end, he was able to design a solution that allowed him to check all of the boxes — scalable, accessible and fast with a bonus of an environmentally-friendly footprint. Next steps: deliver powerful, exciting virtual reality (VR) experiences using the same infrastructure.

    In this webinar, Gomes and his selected partners walk through his evaluation process, talk about outcomes, and discuss new opportunities. In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    - How Gomes compared options, prioritized objectives, and evaluated costs
    - About new opportunities in virtual reality using the same infrastructure
    - How distance of the co-located infrastructure became a non-issue even with high performance demands
    - Important factors in choosing a colocation partner when considering calculated cost benefit and enterprise environmental impact

  • Delivering Data Security with Hadoop and the IoT Delivering Data Security with Hadoop and the IoT Robert D. Schneider, Partner at WiseClouds LLC, Reiner Kappenberger, HPE Security - Data Security Aug 9 2016 10:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The Internet of Things (IoT) is here to stay, and Gartner predicts there will be over 26 billion connected devices by 2020. This is driving an explosion of data which offers tremendous opportunity for organizations to gain business value, and Hadoop has emerged as the key component to make sense of the data and realize the maximum value. On the flip side the surge of new devices has increased potential for hackers to wreak havoc, and Hadoop has been described as the biggest cybercrime bait ever created.

    Data security is a fundamental enabler of the IoT, and if it is not prioritised the business opportunity will be undermined, so protecting company data is more urgent than ever before. The risks are huge and Hadoop comes with few safeguards, leaving it to organizations to add an enterprise security layer. Securing multiple points of vulnerability is a major challenge, although when armed with good information and a few best practices, enterprise security leaders can ensure attackers will glean nothing from their attempts to breach Hadoop.

    In this webinar we will discuss some steps to identify what needs protecting and apply the right techniques to protect it before you put Hadoop into production.
  • The Three Axes of Evaluating Security Analytics Solutions The Three Axes of Evaluating Security Analytics Solutions Dr. Matthew Williamson, Chief Threat Defense Scientist at vArmour Aug 10 2016 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The problem of detecting attackers in today’s enterprises and data centers is harder than ever. Well-funded adversaries with time and patience use techniques that blend in with enterprise activities, making accurate detection difficult. Security analytics promises to address this situation by throwing advanced math at available data sources in the enterprise, with the goal of finding the proverbial threat needle in the data haystack.

    This presentation will enable attendees to evaluate security analytic solutions, cutting through the buzzwords and hype, and providing both a deep understanding of the detection problem and a framework to evaluate solution efficacy, based on three axes: breadth, depth and control.
