  • Getting “Edge-y” with the Internet of Things
    Getting “Edge-y” with the Internet of Things
    Michael Brecht, IoT Business Development, Nokia WING & Michael Winterson, Vice President Business Development, Equinix Recorded: May 21 2020 45 mins
    The past few years has witnessed a rapid growth of the Internet of Things solutions. Edge computing and AI have been integrated to IoT architectures, enabling transformation in ICT and the digital transformation within industry. With the roll-out of 5G and other technology movements globally in the following years, IoT is expected to become strong in the operation of enterprises, making this the decade for them to evaluate the outcome of adopting wholescale and edge-based IoT in their businesses.

    As the IoT market matures and companies seek to derive value from it, new considerations and best practices are emerging. IoT relies on a highly distributed network capturing data. This data needs to be analyzed in real time as it can rapidly lose value over time. This leaves enterprises facing the same question: How can I process data while the intrinsic value is still high?
    The laws of physics and latency dictate that, given the complex processing and speedy responses required by IoT, analysis is best done in close proximity to devices. This talk will cover how enterprises - by building out an IoT environment which includes edge architecture - can factor in filtering, processing and analytics closer to both the input devices and end users. It will also address best practices that allow connected device makers to meet, collaborate and innovate with partner ecosystems via direct and secure interconnection making it easier than ever before to scale operations, optimize supply chains and deliver on the promises of IoT.

  • Redefining Hadoop Data Strategy to Achieve More Insight with Less Cost (English)
    Redefining Hadoop Data Strategy to Achieve More Insight with Less Cost (English)
    Seng Joo Lim, Digital Insights Solution Engineer; Derrence Chan, Technical Expert for Data Intelligence Recorded: May 21 2020 80 mins
    With the current pandemic situation, organizations are now being force to relook and prioritize their IT investment.

    In this webinar, we will explore the challenges our customers are facing with storing data long term in Hadoop, and discuss what Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) and Lumada Data Optimizer able to help our customers solve the exabyte data challenge in reducing cost of Hadoop Data Repository.

    For years Hadoop has been the go-to data processing platform because it is fast and scalable. While Hadoop has solved the data storage and processing problem for many years, it achieves this by scaling storage and compute capacity in parallel. As a result, Hadoop environments have continued to expand compute capacity well beyond their needs as more and more of the storage is consumed by older, inactive data. Although HDFS is effective at storing small-to-mid size repositories of data, HDFS becomes vastly more costly and inefficient as storage needs expand, since this requires increasing both storage and compute. HDFS also relies on data replication (storing multiple copies of each object) for protection. As these data sets grow into the petabytes the growing cost of old data and idle compute in your Hadoop ecosystem will become unsustainable.

    Key take away from this webinar:
    - Lower Hadoop Cost with Lumada Data Optimizer for Hadoop
    - Seamless Access to Hadoop Data with No Disruptions
    - Scale Compute and Storage Independently
    - Optimize Hadoop Resource Consumption and Utilization
    - Avoid Data Protection Headaches
    - A Secure, Flexible and Cost – Effective Storage Solution

    De flesta organisationer har gjort betydande investeringar i nätverket och säkerhetsverktygen som de använder för att hantera och skydda sina nätverk.

    När trafiken skiftar från LAN till WAN är det viktigt att dataflödet till dessa verktyg inte orsakar överbelastning av sökerhetslösningar och andra verktyg, orsakar områden där ni inte har full synlighet eller skapar andra problem beroende på den ökade trafikmängden.
    För att maximera effektiviteten av en organisations verktyg och säkerhetsutrustning är det viktigt att nätverkstrafik från fysisk, virtuell och moln miljöerna är optimerade innan de levereras till dessa lösningar.
    Om inte riskerar man att överbelasta dessa och att få göra manuell handpåläggning i annars automatiserade processer för att undvika problem

    Best Practices for Effective IT Alerting
    Randall Thomson; Manger, Technical Operations, LogicMonitor May 26 2020 6:00 pm UTC 29 mins
    Are you managing your alerts or does it feel like they’re managing you? Alerting on critical issues is essential for smooth operations and downtime prevention. However, incorrectly tuned alerts can result in an alert system failure, whether it’s due to too many or too few alerts. Additionally, managing alerts can be time-consuming, taking your attention away from what’s important – actually solving the issues you’re alerted on.

    Taking the time to properly set up and tune alerts will ultimately save you more time in the long run and help ensure that any alerts you do receive are useful and actionable. In this webinar, you’ll learn best practices for optimizing your alerting strategy including:
    - Setting alert routing and thresholds
    - Avoiding alert and email overload
    - Learning from missed alerts
    - Managing downtime effectively
