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...

  • Accessible and Affordable 3rd Party API and Microservice Integration Testing Accessible and Affordable 3rd Party API and Microservice Integration Testing Nathan Devoll, SV Consultant, CA Technologies Recorded: May 21 2016 56 mins
    Creating seamless digital experiences for customers can require hundreds of systems and services to work together. Not only do you have to worry about your own internal systems, but now in the world of APIs and microservices you also have to worry about how these external systems are going to work with yours.

    Testing dependencies on 3rd party services presents unique challenges. Many 3rd parties charge access fees for test interfaces and the availability and performance of the interfaces may not be the same as the production versions.

    Learn how service virtualization can be used to:
    •Virtualize 3rd party services so they are accessible all the time without fees
    •Replicate production like dependencies for testing
    •Reproduce production defects for faster remediation
    •Eliminate scheduling conflicts and enable parallel development
    •Generate virtualized data
  • Make Testing More Agile and Eliminate Excuses Make Testing More Agile and Eliminate Excuses Chris Kraus, CA Technologies Recorded: May 21 2016 57 mins
    Working in QA and testing has never been more challenging. Development is turning out new code faster than ever, and test backlogs just keep piling up. Errors that make it into production then need to be traced and fixed, adding to the backlog.

    Discover how test automation, service virtualization, and test data management can help you make your testing more agile—and permanently eliminate the excuses.

    You will learn how to avoid these common excuses with the following skills:
    •The dog ate my data: Simplify test data management and increase test coverage
    •That application was before my time: Automate tests for poorly documented systems
    •Nobody told me that: Improve test case requirements with visualization
    •I didn’t have time to test that: Accelerate testing with test automation and open source code
    •It worked fine on my machine: Use service virtualization to create production-like test environments in minutes

  • Life after platform EOS: Vulnerabilities keep coming…and they don't expire Life after platform EOS: Vulnerabilities keep coming…and they don't expire Steve Neville, Director of Hybrid Cloud Security Solutions, Trend Micro Recorded: May 19 2016 31 mins
    If you’re like 58% of organizations out there, you're still in the process of migrating off Windows Server 2003...almost a year after it went End of Support. Regardless of the end of support environment you’re dealing with, vulnerabilities will still keep coming...and so will the attacks looking to take advantage of them, including high profile varieties like Ransomware. The good news is that there are effective ways to deal with end of support platforms while you transition. In this session you will learn about:
    • The latest in vulnerabilities, including those affecting EOS platforms like Windows Server 2003
    • Best practices for protecting EOS platforms from attacks, including Ransomware
    • How Trend Micro’s proven security can help
  • 5 Things You Need to Know About Enterprise Flash 5 Things You Need to Know About Enterprise Flash Adam Roberts, Chief Architect, SanDisk Recorded: May 19 2016 44 mins
    When considering flash storage, there are many misconceptions and outright myths. Especially when equating consumer-grade flash (USB sticks) to enterprise-grade SSDs. In this webinar SanDisk Chief Architect, Adam Roberts, will discuss 5 myths of flash storage and highlight what you need to look out for when choosing a storage device to accelerate your data center storage. This webinar will cover:

    1.Data Protection
    2.Power Fail Protection
    3.Temperature Throttling/Overheating
    4.QoS for Performance
    5.SSD Endurance

    Stay tuned for future webinars which will look at the benefits of flash beyond performance…busting a few more myths on flash.
  • Emerging Technologies in Storage: Disaggregation of Storage Function Emerging Technologies in Storage: Disaggregation of Storage Function Jeff Kato, Taneja Group; Brian Biles, Datrium; Patrick Osborne, HPE; Kevin Fernandez, Nutanix Recorded: May 19 2016 64 mins
    Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss one of the newest trends in storage: Disaggregation of traditional storage functions. A major trend within IT is to leverage server and server-side resources to the maximum extent possible. Hyper-scale architectures have led to the commoditization of servers and flash technology is now ubiquitous and is often times most affordable as a server-side component. Underutilized compute resources exist in many datacenters as the growth in CPU power has outpaced other infrastructure elements. One current hot trend— software-defined-storage—advocates collocating all storage functions to the server side but also relies on local, directly attached storage to create a shared pool of storage. That limits the server’s flexibility in terms of form factor and compute scalability.

    Now some vendors are exploring a new, optimally balanced approach. New forms of storage are emerging that first smartly modularize storage functions, and then intelligently host components in different layers of the infrastructure. With the help of a lively panel of experts we will unpack this topic and explore how their innovative approach to intelligently distributing storage functions can bring about better customer business outcomes.

  • What the others never see: App visibility for Nutanix enterprise clouds What the others never see: App visibility for Nutanix enterprise clouds Bogdan Viher, Lead Product Evangelist, Comtrade & Tommy Gustaveson, Technology Alliances & Business Development, Nutanix Recorded: May 19 2016 58 mins
    Join us as we take a look under the Nutanix hood to understand how business critical applications like Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop use compute, storage and virtualization resources.

    While there are many existing solutions to monitor individual applications, what’s missing is a solution that links the applications layer with the underlying infrastructure to provide a single view of all the layers that impact the performance of business critical applications.

    Comtrade natively plugs into Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) to monitor Nutanix infrastructure that is hosting business critical applications, and can automatically connect applications – including Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop – with virtual machines hosting applications that run on Nutanix. Essentially, Comtrade connects application and infrastructure layers together, enabling quick business critical application discovery and remediation, and ensuring optimal performance that is neatly visualized in one consolidated dashboard.

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    -Typical factors that influence business critical application performance
    -How Nutanix and Comtrade management pack (MP) work together to ensure optimal performance of virtual machines that are running business critical applications, such as Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop
    -How the MP quickly detects application performance bottlenecks and prevents business interruptions
    -How to easily remediate these bottlenecks using Nutanix Prism
    -How to predict future resource needs through performance trends of virtual machines hosting business critical applications, such as Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop
