The Cloud and Your Network—Is There a Gap?

Rob Boyd, Cisco TechWise TV; Nick Lippis, Founder and CEO, Lippis Enterprises
Learn from experts the best ways to prepare your WAN for cloud computing.

Despite recent innovations for accelerating cloud and mobile computing, one critical area has remained neglected—the WAN. With the majority of workers in remote offices, you may find it difficult to deliver a secure cloud experience with adequate application performance. Traditional networks are not cloud-ready, and must be re-designed to benefit from the cost efficiencies and business agility of cloud computing.

Join panelists Nick Lippis, Founder and CEO of Lippis Enterprises, and Rahul Tripathi, Director of Product Management for Services Routing at Cisco, as they discuss:
• Why traditional WANs are challenged by cloud computing
• The requirements for a cloud-ready branch office
• Solutions for robust security, accelerated application performance, and efficient operations
• Management tools that improve visibility and control
• Next steps for getting your WAN cloud-ready

  • Extending Virtualization to the Branch Recorded: Nov 15 2012 60 mins
    Don’t compromise between the cost efficiencies of virtualization and branch survivability.

    With more than half of today’s workers in remote offices, and even more going mobile, IT is challenged with scaling resources to deliver and support applications in remote locations, where IT staff may not be available. Although data center centralization is helping, compromising WAN performance can bring business to a halt if remote and mobile workers have trouble accessing mission-critical applications.

    The Cisco x86-based enterprise class server can be hosted in the widely deployed Cisco Integrated Services Router (ISR), allowing businesses to extend their virtualized data centers to the branch. The solution offers a consolidated form factor that is simple to provision, monitor, and manage from remote locations.

    Join Anurag Gurtu, Technical Marketing Engineer, Services Routing, and Rory Clements, Technical Architect, VWware, as they talk about:
    • The elements of a lean branch architecture and the operational cost savings
    • Survivability features to enable business continuity
    • Use cases for both centralized and distributed enterprise environments
    • Architecture design models
  • Enforcing Pervasive Cloud Security Recorded: Nov 1 2012 52 mins
    While cloud computing increases business agility and efficiency, it also introduces new security risks. Technology issues and process changes can complicate the transition to this new way of business computing. How will backhauling traffic impact performance? How will you scale security services to protect hundreds of sites—all accessing your apps in the cloud?

    Join Cisco Services Routing technical experts Narayan Subbarao and Ray Wong as they discuss:
    •New security challenges of cloud computing
    •Security elements for building a cloud-intelligent network
    •How to securely connect remote sites to infrastructure-as-a-service (IAAS) cloud
    •Strategies for enforcing consistency policies to protect against web-based threats
    •Next steps for securing your connection to the cloud
  • Optimizing Application Performance from Branch-to-Cloud Recorded: Oct 16 2012 63 mins
    Are you moving your apps to the cloud? What will the impact be on your network resources? How will you provide a consistent user experience?

    While the cloud offers operational and cost efficiencies, you must ensure that worker productivity does not suffer from less-than-adequate application performance. Today’s traditional networks are simply not cloud-ready, and may impact your ability to move business applications to the cloud.

    Join Liad Ofek, Cisco Senior Technical Engineer for Services Routing, and Ron Wilson, Senior Technical Engineer, Computer Associates as they discuss:
    • Technical solutions for building out a cloud-intelligent network
    • How to gain visibility and control over network traffic for a smoother transition to the cloud
    • How to monitor performance and apply configurations to optimize the user experience
    • How you can use WAN resources efficiently and avoid additional bandwidth costs
