  • In today's multi-cloud world, do you find yourself thinking, "I really need an open source private cloud that is completely compatible with leading public clouds, i.e. AWS, GCE."

    This webinar explores the anatomy of an OpenStack-powered private cloud built with hybrid computing and DevOps in mind. Join Cloudscaling’s CEO Randy Bias and Scalr CEO Sebastian Stadil as they discuss the design considerations of a hybrid cloud environment that both IT and developers will love. Mark Williams, Redapt’s CTO (former VP of zCloud Infrastructure Operations) will also share real-world experience from implementing one of the first large-scale hybrid cloud infrastructures.

    Register today and gain insight into:
    - Building OpenStack-powered private clouds
    - Private and public cloud interoperability
    - Managing your hybrid cloud with an eye to the future
    - Lessons from the field; what works and what doesn't
  • From Agile Methodologies through test-driven development and continuous integration, and powered by the game-changing cultural shift of DevOps, IT organizations everywhere have been dramatically accelerating their delivery of business value. The final step in this race is continuous delivery—from requirements to running systems along a roadway of software— at the breakneck speed of innovation.

    Joshua McKenty, one of the fathers of OpenStack and a member of both the OpenStack and Cloud Foundry governance boards, will provide an insider's take on the challenges, successes, failures and controversies of this decade's most profound revolution. Expect to come away with an understanding of:

    - Where IaaS and PaaS really fit in the software-defined data center
    - How the silos come down
    - The changes required for security, disaster recovery and SLA management to survive in this brave new world
    - The role of open source frameworks in the modern world
    - Real-world case studies: Who's winning at continuous deployment, and how are they doing it?
  • Join Tommy and Blain as they explore the entry point for provisioning open source servers on Microsoft’s Public Cloud services – Windows Azure. The same platform that runs on Hyper-V 2012 R2 with established performance with major workloads like Xbox Live, Bing, and Office 365. Check out Oracle on Windows or Linux, and WordPress sites all configurable within the Microsoft Datacenters. They’ll show you the VM DEPOT which is used for publishing Open Source packages as well as the VM Gallery for spinning up new virtual machines from templates(ours or yours!).
  • To some, open source cloud computing and storage are inclusive, yet to others they can be exclusive of each other used for separate purposes. Likewise, some open source and cloud technologies, solutions and services are marketed as business enablers, yet are there technology concerns to be considered? On the other hand, the focus can be on the technology as an enabler, yet does it address business needs and concerns or become a barrier. The key to leveraging open source and cloud technologies is realizing what to use when, where, why and how, not to mention in new ways vs. simply as a replacement for doing things how they have been done in the past.

    Key themes:
    · What is your focus and why are you interested in Open Source and Cloud solutions
    · Software Defined Marketing vs. Software Defined Management and enablement
    · Balancing costs of for fee vs. for free (time, money, staffing, on-going support)
    · How to leverage hard products (hardware, software, valueware, services) to create your soft product (services)
    · Using various tools, technologies and solutions in hybrid ways
    · What are the major open source and cloud (computing and storage) solutions, technologies and services
    · Who is doing what and how you can leverage those activities
  • Openstack has been gaining momentum in the IaaS space for some time now. It is a great example of Open Source collaboration and many contributors (more than 15,000!) coming together to make new technology.

    Often, large vendors and the organisations that represent them are seen as incompatible with the Open Source model, particularly in the storage arena. Big Tin is not required.

    In this presentation Glyn Bowden will show what SNIA can offer the Open Source community, the importance of standards and where SNIA are already contributing.
  • A modern Hadoop-based data platform is a combination of multiple source projects brought together, tested, and integrated to create an enterprise-grade platform. In this session, we will review the Hadoop projects required in a Windows Hadoop platform and drill down into Hadoop integration and implementation with Windows, Microsoft Azure, and SQL Server.
  • Google BigQuery is an analytics service offered in the cloud as a part of Google Cloud Platform portfolio. In this webinar we will explore how customers are using BigQuery to jumpstart their BigData Analytics initiatives. We'll also provide details on how you can get started with BigQuery.
  • Creating a service catalog is a critical first step in delivering cloud services and enabling users to order and consume IT services directly. Though a service catalog appears as a list of services to the users, to IT it represents a supply chain of services across various service types, levels, and providers. Organizations must consider a catalog solution that can be flexible to the needs of the business and grow with IT as they adapt to the cloud era.

    Join Gravitant as they outline characteristics and considerations for developing a service catalog. We will walk through what you need to consider when looking for a service catalog solution: automation, flexibility, contract pricing and dynamic catalog options.
  • Join us for our Intro to Box series, a monthly discussion of the latest in the world of enterprise IT, content collaboration, cloud technology, and Box. We'll cover an overview of Box, how businesses like yours are changing the way they work with Box and other cloud technologies, and walk through a demo of the latest and greatest in the product. The sessions will be led by Box product experts, and you might even get a guest appearance from one of our fearless leaders.
