•Find commonalities between information security and cloud teams
•Gain visibility into cloud security
•Assess risk within the cloud by leveraging a policy-driven approach
•Enforce security in CI/CD without impeding application delivery
Register now to learn how automation enables organizations to align cloud and DevOps with security policies.
Enterprises no longer need to pay for duplicate infrastructure, software licenses, and maintenance in order to ensure near-zero Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO). By leveraging the flexibility and “pay-as-you-go” model of Google Cloud Platform combined with CloudEndure’s innovative Continuous Data Protection (CDP) technology, customers can reduce annual disaster recovery costs by an average of 80% while improving recovery objectives.
In this webinar, CIOs, BC/DR managers, and cloud architects will learn how to:
- Reduce DR expenses by leveraging Google Cloud Platform
- Failover to their DR site in minutes
- Conduct non-disruptive DR drills
- Easily failback to their source site when the disaster is over
Walk through the step-by-step process of setting up disaster recovery for any physical, virtual, or cloud workload (Windows/Linux) using Google Cloud Platform as your DR target and CloudEndure as your automated DR solution. You’ll get to see CloudEndure’s DR console that enables customers to manage, track, and test DR for their entire organization in one central management portal.

Join us as Paul Scott-Murphy, WANdisco VP of Product Management, discusses disaster recovery for Hadoop. Learn how to fully operationalize Hadoop to exceed the most demanding SLAs across clusters running any mix of distributions any distance apart, including how to:
- Enable continuous read/write access to data for automated forward recovery in the event of an outage
- Eliminate the expense of hardware and other infrastructure normally required for DR on-premises
- Handle out of sync conditions with guaranteed consistency across clusters
- Prevent administrator error leading to extended downtime and data loss during disaster recovery
Enterprises want to benefit from the advantages of the public cloud, but without optimization they risk paying for services they don’t need, or not provisioning enough of the services they do need to support the availability and performance required for mission critical applications.
Automation is the key to addressing these challenges. By enabling accelerated workload mobility and optimization at scale, as well as completing “mass migrations” successfully in a matter of weeks instead of 12 months, enterprises can spend less time migrating, integrating and monitoring applications, and more time focusing on operations.
Join us and learn how automation can help enterprises realize value from the cloud.

Whether it’s caused by hardware failure, human error, natural disaster, cyber-attack, or other issue, downtime can have a serious impact on your business. Your employees and customers expect constant connectivity and a seamless experience. Fortunately, the cloud’s 24/7 anytime/anywhere service, elasticity, immediate connectivity, automated backup, and related features make it easier to maintain business continuity. More than 81 percent of enterprises recognize the BC/DR advantages of the cloud and employ a multi-cloud strategy, and more than half (51 percent) have a hybrid cloud strategy, according to RightScale. While the hybrid cloud can optimize business continuity, it needs to be architected to do so.
Join us on February 23rd at 1 p.m. ET for ““Business Continuity in the Hybrid Cloud: The Obsolescence of Downtime,” a webinar from Comcast Business, to learn from our expert panelists how to develop an infrastructure that considers business continuity—and keeping downtime at bay—as a core function.
• The role of direct connectivity in maximizing business continuity
• Specializing infrastructures to meet specific workload requirements
• Setting rules to control user access and connections between different resources
• Prioritizing what data must be recovered first, setting recovery point objectives (RPO), and determining recovery time objectives (RTO)
• Duplicating your infrastructure in the cloud

Many organizations have complex BC/DR plans consisting of several products, requiring multiple people to be present to execute the recovery, should disaster strike. This was the case at Long Term Care Group. They were using an orchestration tool with storage-based replication. Executing a DR test was becoming more and more difficult and confidence in their plan was fading.
Zerto Virtual Replication provides continuous block-level replication and fully automated and orchestrated failover, recovery, failback and DR testing. Mike Gelhar, Systems Engineer at Long Term Care Group knew they had found the solution they needed to deliver robust BC/DR while greatly reducing risk.
- Reduce risk with an automated solution that anyone can execute
- DR Testing ensures recovery through reports and provides the opportunity to make adjustments in the plan
- Maximize the investment with a solution that can simplify migrations and maintenance of the environment
- Installation is complete in one hour with no configuration changes so the carefully architected production environment is not changed, further reducing risk
Discover why an automated disaster recovery plan is important for your business, and see how a CA Technologies customer created a hands-free policy for failover and failback of every IT service under their control.Read more >

Join Mark Peters, Enterprise Strategy Group Senior Analyst, as he moderates a discussion on the three stages to achieve an all-flash cloud storage platform. According to research and trends for 2017, most IT departments prioritize “cloud” as their top IT initiative. Cloud models for IT are increasingly viewed as critical to agile and high performance infrastructure. The cloud economic model is viewed as critical to meeting demanding IT challenges with limited budgets. An all-flash hybrid cloud storage platform can support the goal of becoming more cloud-like, including automated, orchestrated, self-service offerings while allowing you to maintain control of your data and infrastructure.
Join this webinar to learn the steps needed to develop an all-flash cloud and take part in the following discussions:
- Cloud IT has become the strategic direction for IT
- Hybrid cloud (public + private) is the way to go
- 3 stage journey to the cloud
Enterprises are evolving their vSphere environments from standard DR configurations to high availability (HA) architectures. VMware vSphere Metro Storage Cluster is a key capability in this evolution. Parallel to this, companies are embracing hybrid cloud and AWS in particular. In many cases enterprises treat AWS as a passive DR site. But what if you could evolve AWS to be part of an HA stretch cluster? That’s where software-defined storage (SDS) comes in.
SDS solutions provide the flexibility to run on commodity servers as well as cloud computing instances. Couple that with advanced multi-site replication, per-VM storage policies, deduplication, snapshotting, cloning, and VMware’s recent announcement with AWS, and SDS is now the ideal enabler for automated failover in a hybrid cloud stretched cluster.
In this session we’ll:
- Provide an architecture for software-defined storage running a stretched cluster between a private vSphere cloud and AWS.
- Discuss how this provides seamless failover, HA, DR, and cloud bursting—all at scale.
- Highlight how data efficiency techniques like deduplication, thin provisioning, auto-tiering, and caching optimize hybrid cloud economics.

Attackers have embraced automation to launch attacks and expand their reach within your network. But ill-intentioned individuals aren’t alone in having automation in their toolkit. It’s time to fight automation with automation.
How quickly you can respond to a zero-day attack largely depends on how proactively you secure your network. When attackers engineer malware to automatically detect vulnerabilities on your network, the way to prevent damage is to employ automation so you can react quickly and ensure its integrity.
Join Tufin experts Dan Rheault and Joe Schreiber, also an established SOC professional, for an educational webinar that will discuss best practices to:
•Secure the network through effective segmentation
•Contain risk from zero-day attacks
•Leverage automation to respond to security incidents
Perhaps a dozen tools have sprung up over the last ten years that allow images of apps to be migrated across data centers and now clouds. While most are well designed, thoughtful and practical for some hybrid cloud use cases, they still do not constitute cloud migration solutions for the vast majority of existing, multi-tier enterprise applications. Tools need to be more robust and powerful to easily and safely move larger apps and critical authentication services into seamless hybrid cloud operating environments.
Join this webinar as Greg Ness from CloudVelocity discusses how cloud migration of Linux and Windows Apps into AWS can quickly and safely deploy multi-tier production apps into the cloud without virtualization and/or modiﬁcation for use cases that include DevTest and Disaster Recovery.

It is no secret that we live in a 24/7 world that demands information be always available, always accurate and always secure. In order to meet these demands a comprehensive risk management program must be in place. At the forefront of these efforts are the preventive measures that try to reduce the probability of a disruptive incident occurring. But as has been all too often the case, these protective actions may not be enough. Whether it be the force of nature, the actions of terrorists, the fragility of infrastructures or so many other disruptive events will and do happen.
Left with the reality that we must prepare for interruptions to occur, the job of the Business Continuity Professional is to minimize the resulting impacts. Creating environments that will provide connectivity, processing and data integrating, more and more organizations are looking toward the clouds. Whether it be to ensure that data can be shared or looking for full automated recovery cloud computing has a possible answer. This presentation will discuss what the cloud is, how it can make organizations more resilient and some of the issues pertaining to its usage.
