  • Inflection Point: Where IoT & Software-Defined are Pushing Today's Data Center
    Inflection Point: Where IoT & Software-Defined are Pushing Today's Data Center David Powell, GM of Service Provider Business, LogicMonitor Recorded: Feb 15 2018 37 mins
    Today's enterprises are going through a period of consolidation and moving workloads to the public cloud. Data center providers are acquiring smaller regional data center assets, creating less choice and more dominant players. New technology is compounding the shift, changing everything inside the data center. And a zero tolerance for downtime among the user community means that delays and maintenance windows are no longer an option. Things are changing quickly. And the prevailing industry trends are increasing the pace of that change:

    - The Internet of Things (IoT) is pushing compute to the edge with smart devices, creating challenges for latency and scalability.
    - Software-defined Environments require a complete rethinking of the way data centers are built. If executed correctly, they have the potential to eliminate the bottleneck typically associated with hardware.
    - Machine Learning presents new forms of data and pattern recognition, which has direct implications for data center security and resource allocation.
    - Serverless computing, while closely tied to IoT and other application development trends, puts more pressure on the core infrastructure to be scalable and automated.

    How will this affect today's data center? This session explores the bleeding edge and how data center practitioners can capitalize on its momentum rather than become subsumed by it. Attendees will gain a nuanced understanding of the new technology trends that are taking shape. And they'll leave with strategies to adapt to new pressures and demands.

  • Discover the SIEMple Life with a Managed SOC
    Discover the SIEMple Life with a Managed SOC Narayan Makaram - Senior Director of Product Marketing & Louis Evans - Product Marketing Manager at Arctic Wolf Networks Recorded: Feb 15 2018 59 mins
    Most security information and event management (SIEM) customers are struggling to achieve meaningful success a year or more after initial deployment. This is especially true with mid-market companies, where shrinking IT security budgets and shortage of skilled cyber security resources have forced them to reconsider investing in a SIEM, and seriously look at managed security services options.

    Before CIOs/CISOs take a leap of faith into any kind of managed security service, they want to be able to measure ROI with an outsourced managed solution, as opposed to managing their own SIEM. In this webinar, hear from security experts on:
    - What does it take to build and manage your own SIEM in-house?
    - What security SIEM blind spots can you avoid with a managed security service?
    - How do you determine ROI of a managed service as compared to a SIEM?

  • IT Transformation: Beyond the Traditional Data Centre
    IT Transformation: Beyond the Traditional Data Centre Simon Ratcliffe, Consulting & Advisory, Ensono Recorded: Feb 15 2018 49 mins
    IT Transformation projects are usually driven by the need to reduce complexity, improve agility, simplify systems, contain costs, manage ever growing data and provide more efficient operational management. Arguably, for seasoned IT professionals there is nothing new about the drivers for transformational change; it’s the velocity and scale of transformation today that’s the big challenge.

    Today, to effectively accelerate business innovation, successful IT leaders are building infrastructure that focuses on automation and flexibility, supporting agile application development and helping deliver world-class customer experience. Of course, IT teams are still under pressure to deliver legacy, mission-critical applications but they also need to support a seemingly constant flow of emerging business opportunities. They’re also tasked to lower costs, reduce Capex, while helping to drive revenue growth. That’s a lot of drivers and this complex juggling act often requires modernising infrastructure. An almost inevitable result of this is that the mix of platforms they adopt will include public cloud.

    So, does that signal the end of the corporate data centre as we know it? Well, as is so often the answer – yes and no. ‘Yes’ because there is no doubt that the complexity and cost of building and managing on-premise infrastructures is becoming increasingly unsustainable for many businesses. And ‘no’ because business continuity and stability of legacy applications are still, quite rightly, primary drivers today. But the corporate data centre may well now be a service provider’s data centre...
  • Container troubleshooting with Sysdig
    Container troubleshooting with Sysdig Jorge Salamero Sanz, Technical Marketing Manager, Sysdig Recorded: Feb 15 2018 45 mins
    SSHing into a container for troubleshooting or burdening it with additional monitoring tools is kind of an anti-pattern. But… you still want to have full control, traceability and visibility right? Containers are highly volatile, how can you do this if your container doesn’t exist anymore?

    Sysdig uses Linux tracepoints to collect and then process and filter kernel system calls and events. Still this requires a deep knowledge on a tcpdump like filtering syntax and understanding on the syscalls involved. Sysdig Inspect makes our deep dive into system calls much more intuitive and visual though a graphical user interface that allows to correlate high level activities like containers, processes, containers, network or file I/O and commands, events or logs.

    In this webinar series you will get to know how Sysdig and Sysdig inspect works through a series of practical examples:

    -Exploration and performance analysis of container, processes, network and file activity on a typical Wordpress setup
    -Debug a 502 HTTP error on a load-balanced Python app with HAproxy
    -Troubleshoot a Kubernetes CrashLoopBackOff error

    Who should attend?

    If you're managing containers in production, using containers for development or just beginning our container exploration, you'll want to attend to understand the challenges of troubleshooting system or application errors when running inside containers.

  • Building a Zero Trust Network
    Building a Zero Trust Network Evan Gilman and Doug Barth Recorded: Feb 14 2018 59 mins
    Even as the world continues to change, our network security models have struggled to keep pace. Cloud mobility is a paramount security project, but the perimeter security model is showing its age and having difficulty in the new cloud world order.

    We spend millions on complex perimeter and address-focused technologies, but ever-worsening breaches continue to make the headlines year after year. The zero trust model aims to resolve that conflict.

    Zero trust networks are built with security at the forefront, creating policies using software and user identities, rather than spoofable IP addresses. By shifting the identifiers from addresses to software and user signatures, zero trust networks can protect public cloud workloads and on-premises applications with the same ease and flexibility.

    Doug and Evan will discuss the origins of and philosophy behind the zero trust networking model, why it's needed in today's network security landscape and how it can simplify workload protection.

  • Shift Happens! The power of Performance Testing
    Shift Happens! The power of Performance Testing Jeff Bradley, Pre-Sales Advisor, CA Technologies Feb 28 2018 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Performance testing is more relevant than ever. It’s even more prominent in the software development life cycle than in the past. What’s changed is that development and testing teams now can test component level performance earlier than ever with tools such as Service Virtualization.

    It’s now easier to identify and fix performance-related issues as they are being worked much earlier than before, when performance testing was done during a formal performance testing cycle in the stage environment after multiple code builds have hidden those issues deeper across several application layers.

    This session will cover the basics of how to shift performance testing left so that development and testing teams can test component level performance using CA Service Virtualization and CA BlazeMeter.
  • Building efficient 5G NR base stations with Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors
    Building efficient 5G NR base stations with Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors Daniel Towner, System Architect for Wireless Access, Intel Corporation Feb 28 2018 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    5G brings many new capabilities over 4G including higher bandwidths, lower latencies, and more efficient use of radio spectrum. However, these improvements require a large increase in computing power in the base station. Fortunately the Xeon Scalable Processor series (Skylake-SP) recently introduced by Intel has a new high-performance instruction set called Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) which is capable of delivering the compute needed to support the exciting new world of 5G.

    In his talk Daniel will give an overview of the new capabilities of the Intel AVX-512 instruction set and show why they are so beneficial to supporting 5G efficiently. The most obvious difference is that Intel AVX-512 has double the compute performance of previous generations of instruction sets. Perhaps surprisingly though it is the addition of brand new instructions that can make the biggest improvements. The new instructions mean that software algorithms can become more efficient, thereby enabling even more effective use of the improvements in computing performance and leading to very high performance 5G NR software implementations.
