IT Automation Unplugged

Glenn O’Donnell, Forrester
Automation is the underpinning of any data center or cloud transformation initiative, but the state of automation techniques is as diverse and varied at IT itself. In this session, some of IT's automation thought leaders will gather for an authentic conversation around many of the key challenges enterprises are trying to solve when it comes to cloud architecture, choosing a solution, and measuring value.

Join this session to better understand which approach to IT automation makes the most sense for you...
Panelists:
• Wayne Greene, CTO, CIAC, Cisco

  • Hyper-converged storage is turning out to be the buzz phrase of the storage industry in 2015, one with as many confusing and contradictory definitions as there are vendors. In theory, the combining of server and storage tiers into a single entity should deliver better application performance and lower infrastructure costs. In practice, your mileage will vary.

    Join us for this webinar where industry expert Jon Toigo – chairman and co-founder of the Data Management Institute – will help to identify key criteria for making the right infrastructure decision for your business. Mr. Toigo will offer his key criteria in selecting a hyper-converged infrastructure model and he will survey the offerings of leading vendors to identify the “gotchas,” trade-offs and lock-ins of each option so you find the best fit for your company.

  • Network Managers have a tall order in IT organizations today. Typically, they are tasked with two conflicting business directives:

    1. Deliver optimal end-user experience for networked applications

    2. Reduce the operational cost of the network, or reduce the IT budget

    But the knee jerk approach of “throwing bandwidth at the problem” while potentially improving end user experience, is hardly the answer to cost management and network optimization.

    In this webinar, Chris Greer will discuss the challenges that result from the common approaches utilized today in capacity planning and, outline a new way, comprised of 4 actionable steps to optimizing the bandwidth you may already have.

  • Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) provides a new ecosystem and value chain in mobile networks. The Open-RAN ecosystem enables Mobile Operators to open their Radio Access Network (RAN) edge to authorized third-party applications and services. By transforming proximity, context, agility, rapid response time and speed into value for mobile users, mobile operators, network equipment vendors, and third-party providers can improve the customer experience and monetize mobile broadband. The MEC trend is gaining momentum with the establishment of an ETSI MEC Standardization group led by Intel, Nokia, Huawei and other major players.

    In the Webinar, we will present the MEC architecture within the mobile network and demonstrate a number of use cases
    -Leveraging the Open-RAN ecosystem to bring 3rd party applications like Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) to the Radio Edge;
    -Demonstrating the value of real-time network awareness for optimized content delivery;
    -And presenting advanced RAN-based technologies that further accelerate content delivery
  • User Environment Management (UEM) technologie zorgt ervoor dat alle gebruikers naar tevredenheid kunnen werken op ieder device, terwijl het de IT-omgeving en daarmee het beheer minder complex maakt. Vooral ook in een omgeving met een mix van fysieke en virtuele devices of een combinatie van meerdere devices, locaties of delivery methodes.

    Wil je weten of een UEM-oplossing toegevoegde waarde heeft voor jouw IT-omgeving? Schrijf je dan nu in voor de 5 technische webinars gehost door onze Pre Sales Consultants. Zij gaan in op de vijf belangrijkste redenen om de gebruikerservaring in jouw organisatie naar een hoger niveau te brengen en hoe je dat technisch gezien voor elkaar krijgt.

    Tijdens dit webinar wordt ingegaan op reden #1: Gebruikers willen overal en op ieder device dezelfde goede ervaring. Naast het bespreken van de techniek, laten onze pre-sales door middel van een demo met name zien hoe gebruikers op ieder device dezelfde look-and-feel kunnen ervaren. Door UEM krijgen gebruikers een context-afhankelijke omgeving toegepast op hun behoeften, in lijn met het beleid van de organisatie waarvoor ze werken. Ook met het oog op de komst van Windows 10 is het belangrijk ervoor te zorgen dat gebruikers hun eigen omgeving behouden.
  • DNS security breaches are more common than you think. From hijacking of a DNS record at the registrar to cache poisoning to data exfiltration through DNS, they can cause significant damage in terms of direct revenue loss, theft of sensitive information, and brand damage. Because DNS is rarely monitored closely, malicious actors use it to avoid detection and slip under the radar. Early detection is key to minimizing damage and disrupting the cyber-kill chain at the DNS level. Join this webinar to learn the different breach tactics, the impact a security breach can have, and best practices and mitigation techniques. Keeping your DNS secure means keeping your data secure.
  • This webinar discusses the potential pitfalls when cable operators begin upgrading their networks for IP video delivery. Delivering IPTV is more economical than cable TV and offers a higher quality of service to end customers, but a key challenge is to maintain an excellent customer experience during the transition period in order to deliver an increasing bottom line.

    This webinar will give a structured and cost-efficient approach to assuring network and service quality for IPTV and Cable TV.

    We will share insights and best practices around:

    * Pre-assessment of new network deployments to reduce service calls

    * A system approach that pinpoints problems along the entire service delivery chain

    * Remote troubleshooting to quickly eliminate customer issues to reduce churn

    * 24/7 customer quality insight vs. isolated measurements with handheld tools
  • Private cloud deployments are going mainstream. The problem is that VM visibility and DNS, DHCP, and IP address management automation are still a huge challenge that can cause delays, manual work, and errors. Those days are over. Watch this webinar and learn how you can be enabled to put your private cloud networking on auto-pilot. See the next generation of network automation for cloud and virtual environments to help simplify your private cloud deployment.

    Crossing the chasm from development and test of complex enterprise applications to actually deploying and keeping them up-to-date can be a treacherous trail lined with increasing customer demands, rapidly changing technology, and shrinking resources. Automation is key, and piecing together a scripted approach to automation won’t get you to the other side.

    That’s why rPath is bundling support and services to ease migration for users who’ve tried to achieve enterprise application automation with Puppet and have come up short.

    With rPath Cloud Engine 6.5, Puppet users can...

    • Keep scripts and modules you’ve created
    • Easily migrate from a complex programming to push-button automation
    • Use platform-agnostic App GPS technology to ensure fast, consistent, reliable application deployment, update, and maintenance
    • Throw away old-school layered approaches and leverage the speed of image deployment
