  • Reduce your TCO with a full-featured software load balancer Reduce your TCO with a full-featured software load balancer Ashish Shah, Director of Product, Avi Networks Recorded: Jul 21 2016 44 mins
    Hardware or software applicance-based load balancers do not scale horizontally. They often cause configuration delays, overspending, and overprovisioning. Avi Networks leverages the power of central management and insights derived from distributed load balancing resources to provide predictive autoscaling of load balancers as well as application components. Enterprises can eliminate upfront capital costs and adopt an elastic subscription-based model for load balancing. The Avi Vantage platform alleviates operational complexities inherent in buying hardware and managing multiple appliances.

    In this webinar learn new best practices for autoscaling load balancers and applications. Learn the flexibility and cost savings achieved through:

    • Software-defined L4-L7 services and central management
    • Use of commodity x86 servers for load balancing
    • Elastic scaling based on real-time traffic that eliminates overprovisioning
    • Avoiding CapEx and significantly reduced OpEx

    ·Are there IT Ops skills and techniques that you can leverage when embracing DevOps?

    ·How does Monitoring as a Discipline enable DevOps and unlock Hybrid IT?

    In this session, you will learn the answers to these questions along with techniques and frameworks to successfully integrate DevOps principles into your 2016 Hybrid IT objectives.
  • The Traditional vs Continuous Audit: John Henry vs Steam Drill The Traditional vs Continuous Audit: John Henry vs Steam Drill Greg Frazier, Sole Practitioner, Greg Frazier, CPA Recorded: Jul 20 2016 62 mins
    Database triggers, coupled with cloud technology and the growing popularity of APIs (application program interfaces) have beefed up the capabilities of continuous auditing. Industries of all sorts, from banking, to ecommerce, to supply chain, to logistics, use applications that incorporate software that instantly alerts stake holders to outliers in data. This is exactly what we auditors need in our profession. Instead, we and our clients continue to rely on annual audits for third party assurance. Fees for the traditional annual audits spiral downward because all of us know that there is little value in an audit opinion on year old information.

    Greg Frazier, CPA & Microsoft Certified Partner- Application Development will discuss the following:

    - What is continuous auditing?
    - How are continuous audits more valuable than traditional audits?
    - How are continuous audits more cost-effective than traditional audits?

    Join us in this session to deep-dive into cloud accounting tools and technologies such as QuickBooks, networks in the cloud, data captures, and more!

But if you don't get the foundations right now, how will you achieve success from these in the future? Hear insights to help you create the right foundations for your business to meet these demands head on.
  • Cloud Storage: Solving Interoperability Challenges Cloud Storage: Solving Interoperability Challenges Udayan Singh, Head, Tata Consultancy, Mark Carlson, Cloud Storage Co-Chair, Cloud Storage TWG Co-Chair Recorded: Jul 19 2016 34 mins
    Cloud storage has transformed the storage industry, however interoperability challenges that were overlooked during the initial stages of growth are now emerging as front and center issues. Join this Webcast to learn the major challenges that businesses leveraging services from multiple cloud providers or moving from one cloud provider to another face.
    The SNIA Cloud Data Management Interface standard (CDMI) addresses these challenges by offering data interoperability between clouds. SNIA and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) have partnered to create a SNIA CDMI Conformance Test Program to help cloud storage providers achieve CDMI conformance.
    As interoperability becomes critical, end user companies should include the CDMI standard in their RFPs and demand conformance to CDMI from vendors.
    Join us on July 19th to learn:
    •Critical challenges that the cloud storage industry is facing
    •Issues in a multi-cloud provider environment
    •Addressing cloud storage interoperability challenges
    •How the CDMI standard works
    •Benefits of CDMI conformance testing
    •Benefits for end user companies

  • Securely Implementing Cloud Native Applications Securely Implementing Cloud Native Applications Edward L. Haletky, President, AstroArch Consulting Inc., Managing Director, The Virtualization Practice LLC Recorded: Jul 19 2016 53 mins
    Building Cloud Native Applications securely is more than using containers or building with orchestration and automation. It is a lifecycle which includes moving security from external sources directly into the application. To move security into the application requires knowledge of the application, security, and testing. Developers need to learn more about security, but as they do, the process must also change to protect the developer, the application, and to improve security testing in an automatic method. Automation and Orchestration is crucial, but so is finding out what was done wrong, so it can be corrected. The key to this is a Secure Agile Cloud Development architecture and process. Join us to deep-dive into these processes and best practices for secure application development and management.
