  • How to Scale Enterprise DevOps in the Era of Docker & Application Containers
    How to Scale Enterprise DevOps in the Era of Docker & Application Containers Jay Lyman, 451 Research, & Scott Coulton, Puppet Recorded: Apr 19 2017 48 mins
    Application container software such as Docker and Kubernetes are among today's most disruptive trends in enterprise IT. While many are contemplating how containers may disrupt or even overtake DevOps in terms of hype or adoption, it's important to remember the reality that both containers and DevOps are part of the larger trend toward digital transformation. Containers are definitely having an impact on DevOps tenets of faster application releases and more efficient infrastructure management, but are just as likely to be a catalyst to scaling DevOps rather than competition. This webinar presented by 451 Research and Puppet will offer some perspective on what container software really means for the modern DevOps movement in the enterprise based on industry analysis and experience, survey data and customer case studies.
  • Performance Management for Cloud-based applications
    Performance Management for Cloud-based applications Nicolas Leszczynski, Senior APM Solution Specialist Riverbed Recorded: Apr 19 2017 39 mins
    Cloud. Elastic computing. Containers. Microservices. Shared Libraries. These technologies are being adopted at almost exponential rates since they greatly simplify application design, development, deployment and manageability.

    Unfortunately, that surface-level simplicity comes with the price of dramatically more complex under-the-covers behaviors and relationships. Application topology is often transient, nebulous, and unpredictably interrelated with countless other applications and services. This has posed a serious challenge for performance management, since many tools and techniques are still rooted to static physical concepts like tiers, servers, and JVMs.

    There’s also been an expansion of the consumption of APM data, as LOB management and application owners look for more KPIs to help them improve the bottom line of the business. APM isn’t just a tool for developers and troubleshooters anymore.

    Learn How Riverbed Solutions can help you not only overcome these cloud applications performance management challenges, but also extract business-relevant information buried deep in these mind-boggling complex architectures

  • How secure is your Hybrid Cloud roadmap? (India/APAC focus)
    How secure is your Hybrid Cloud roadmap? (India/APAC focus) Aaron Sherrill (451 Research) and Avinash Prasad (Tata Communications) Recorded: Apr 11 2017 59 mins
    Hybrid Clouds are expected to gain prominence for hosting diverse enterprise workloads due to a variety of needs. For this model of cloud deployment, there exist broader security and specific privacy concerns driven primarily by data loss, data privacy and compliance to regulatory needs. Although Hybrid Clouds offer a degree of control and security of IT infrastructure, there is a need for unified cloud security management which offers a more holistic view of risk categorization and standard security policies. How can working with a service provider, who can offer an optimized mix of technology and controls to seamlessly manage Security and Compliance, change the game for the enterprise?

  • Network, Database or Storage? Why Your Apps are Running Slow & How to Fix Them
    Network, Database or Storage? Why Your Apps are Running Slow & How to Fix Them Frank Ohlhorst, Enterprise IT Analyst & Consultant and Srinivas Ramanathan, CEO of eG Innovations Recorded: Mar 28 2017 59 mins
    IT performance management isn’t about monitoring CPU, memory or disk space any more. One of the toughest application performance challenges for any IT administrator is when a user says "my application is slow". You have to be able to quickly determine what the real cause of the problem is - is it in the network, the database, the application, storage? The fact that applications are using multi-tier architectures and being deployed in cloud and virtualized infrastructures only adds to the challenge.

    Join us for this webinar where Frank Ohlhorst, Enterprise IT Analyst & Consultant and Srinivas Ramanathan, CEO of eG Innovations, will discuss the best practices for troubleshooting and prevention so even before a user complains their application is slow, you can pinpoint exactly where the cause of a problem lies – ensuring quick resolution and a positive user experience.
