  • Microservices and Containers: A Marriage Made in Heaven
    Microservices and Containers: A Marriage Made in Heaven Parminder Kocher, Director of Engineering, Cisco Networking Academy, Cisco Systems Recorded: Apr 19 2018 51 mins
    Microservices aren’t for every organization, but if you know what to expect and prepare accordingly—and if you pair them with Docker containers—they can bring unprecedented agility and scalability to application development and deployment, especially in large, complex projects where speed is crucial and small errors can be disastrous.

    In this high-level presentation geared toward executives and other decision-makers, Parminder Kocher, author of the newly published book, Microservices and Containers, will break down these potentially game-changing technologies. First, are they right for you? Making the switch to microservices is a large undertaking with a steep learning curve, both operationally and culturally, so it's crucial to assess the risks before taking the plunge. Second, what should you expect if and when you decide to move forward with the shift? Kocher draws from his own personal experience to help you with the transition. By the end of the presentation, you should have a good idea how microservices—especially when paired with Docker containers—can bring unprecedented agility and scalability to application development and deployment, especially in large, complex projects where time to market and scalability are paramount.

    About the presenter:

    As the Engineering Director for the Cisco Networking Academy, Parminder currently leads the team responsible for developing the Academy’s platform, which is accessed by 1.5 million students in 180 countries. In addition to bachelor’s and master’s degrees in computer science, Kocher has an executive MBA from Baylor’s Hankamer School of Business, an executive certificate in strategy and innovation from MIT’s Sloan School of Management, and a certificate in Professional Coaching from iPEC, an International Coach Federation (ICF)-accredited coaching training program. His first book, Microservices and Containers, was published by Addison-Wesley earlier this month.

  • How to Scale Oracle Database and Reduce Your TCO
    How to Scale Oracle Database and Reduce Your TCO Ganesh Balabharathi & Venky Nagapudi Recorded: Apr 19 2018 58 mins
    As Enterprises transition to online data-driven transactional business models, the need to support more customers and users at scale, typically means massive investments for Oracle database licenses and the supporting data infrastructure. But most enterprise infrastructure is not optimized to maximize the performance of CPUs in their database servers resulting in wasted resources and poor utilization of these expensive Oracle licenses. Are the bottlenecks in their current infrastructure well understood? With a plethora of solid state storage options available, do infrastructure architects know how to effectively evaluate and select the best storage platform to reduce Oracle TCO?

    The key to optimizing your Oracle infrastructure spend is the focus of this webinar where Vexata solution architects will address some of the common misconceptions related to scaling Oracle ecosystems using case studies and best practices to deliver massive performance improvements and realize significant cost savings.

    You will learn about:
    •When and how to tune various infrastructure options available to an Oracle DBA
    •How to maximize database performance including how to optimize CPU cores based on deploying solid-state storage systems.
    •Best practices for Oracle evaluation and benchmarking tools including SLOB2, IO Calibration, and Orion

  • Your Future WAN is Wireless, Why Wait?
    Your Future WAN is Wireless, Why Wait? Todd Krautkremer, CMO, Cradlepoint Recorded: Apr 19 2018 60 mins
    In 1997, the world was introduced to 802.11 “WiFi” and within a couple of years, it became a business networking staple. At the time, few would have foreseen that WiFi would become the dominant way we connect at home, work, and play today. As more of what businesses connect to is in the cloud, and more of what they are connecting is outside the office, 4G LTE is quickly becoming the next wireless revolution for connecting people, places, and things. This time, the revolution is in the WAN.

    Just like the evolution of the 802.11 WiFi standard, which is on the cusp of 802.11ax, the world of LTE has evolved significantly since it was first deployed less than a decade ago. Today, cellular providers are already rolling out Gigabit LTE with plans to launch 5G in several other U.S. cities mid-year. Any business contemplating a refresh of their WAN in support of cloud and digital transformation initiatives needs to be thinking about the role of 4G LTE and 5G services. If history is our guide, your future WAN will be wireless.

    Challenges driving next-gen WAN requirements:

    • Branch continuity as more traffic is cloud and Internet bound

    • Combined wired and wireless connectivity to accommodate growing
    bandwidth requirements

    • Accommodating the growing number of WAN endpoints outside the
    branch

    • Edge security and overall management implications

    Cradlepoint is an industry leader in edge solutions for 4G LTE and 5G enabled networks. With the help of Spiceworks, Cradlepoint conducted a survey of over a hundred enterprise IT decision-makers in North America to assess the pervasiveness of 4G LTE within enterprise WANs today and uncover some misconceptions.

    Join Todd Krautkremer, CMO at Cradlepoint, for a live webinar on April 19th, 2018 at 9:00 am PT to learn about how organizations are leveraging 4G LTE within the enterprise, WANs today, and the role advanced 4G and 5G wireless services will play in next-gen, software-defined WAN strategies.

  • Security at Network Speeds
    Security at Network Speeds Ian Farquhar, Principal Sales Engineer, Gigamon Recorded: Apr 18 2018 62 mins
    Exponentially increasing network traffic volumes and security tool sprawl are overwhelming security operations and network operations teams. A network packet broker is supposed to eliminate complexity and save costs, not add to them!

    Organizations need to:
    •Deliver just the right data to the right tools.
    •Drive consolidation across their security stack.
    •Manage a common platform across physical, virtual and public cloud environments.

    Hence, a next-generation network packet broker is required to deliver visibility to security tools focused on threat prevention, detection, analytics and forensics. The right tools get the right traffic at the right time, every time.

    Attend this webinar to learn how to:
    •Maximize tool performance and ROI by applying advanced traffic intelligence.
    •Rapidly detect and respond to new threats while eliminating security tool sprawl.
    •Have pervasive and consistent visibility across their physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure.

    Join Gigamon and (ISC)² on Apr 18, 2018 (Wed) at 14:00 (Singapore time) to learn how to increase efficiency of your security stack.
  • From DevOps to NoOps: Adopting Cloud Native with Kubernetes and FaaS
    From DevOps to NoOps: Adopting Cloud Native with Kubernetes and FaaS Vamsi Chemitiganti, Chief Strategist, at Platform9 Recorded: Apr 17 2018 48 mins
    Cloud Native (CN) application development is emerging as the most important trend in digital platforms and one that ultimately determines business competitiveness.

    What makes this paradigm so challenging is that the application itself is designed for scalability, resiliency, and incremental enhance-ability from the get-go. The fundamental truth is that not only will this change how your infrastructure is provisioned & deployed but also how it is managed.Cloud Native applications need to be architected, designed, developed, packaged, delivered and managed based on a deep understanding of technologies such as Docker & Kubernetes.

    In this presentation from Platform9, we will identify the three key degrees of Cloud Native adoption:
    - Hybrid
    - IT, DevOps
    - NoOps

    We will highlight disruptive & validated architectures that leverage Kubernetes, Hybrid Cloud and Fission "FaaS". We will also discuss what forward-looking organizations should be cognizant of while embarking on an enterprise CN strategy.
