IT environments are now fundamentally hybrid in nature – devices, systems, and people are spread across the globe, and at the same time virtualized. Achieving integration across this ever changing environment, and doing so at the pace of modern digital initiatives, is a significant challenge.
This presentation introduces a hybrid integration reference architecture published by the Cloud Standards Customer Council. Attend this webinar to learn best practices from leading-edge enterprises that are starting to leverage a hybrid integration platform to take advantage of best of breed cloud-based and on-premises integration approaches.
Many businesses are considering hybrid architectures to take advantage of cloud computing's scalability and availability characteristics. In most cases the consideration is for public access to be handled in the cloud with requests to be satisfied by applications running in private managed data centers. Logically, this is a great solution for businesses that cannot or are not ready to move their data completely into the public cloud. Here's a checklist of things to consider when choosing to migrate workloads to a hybrid cloud architecture.Read more >

Version 2.0 of the architecture includes support for new use cases and cognitive computing.
Big data analytics (BDA) and cloud computing are a top priority for CIOs. As cloud computing and big data technologies converge, they offer a cost-effective delivery model for cloud-based analytics. Many companies are experimenting with different cloud configurations to understand and refine requirements for their big data analytics solutions.
This webinar will cover:
• Business reasons to adopt cloud computing for big data and analytics capabilities
• Proven architecture patterns that have been deployed in successful enterprise BDA projects
• An architectural overview of a big data analytics solution in a cloud environment with a description of the capabilities offered by cloud providers
Blockchain technology has the potential to have a major impact on how institutions process transactions and conduct business. At its core, blockchain features an immutable distributed ledger and a decentralized network that is cryptographically secured. A blockchain is a historical record of all the transactions that have taken place in the network since the beginning of the blockchain and serves as a single source of truth for the network.
Attend this webinar to learn about the capabilities of a Blockchain cloud reference architecture including deployment considerations and specific application examples.
In this presentation we look at how Microservices are influencing the Application Architecture in Cloud and also simplifying the application delivery and efficiency. We also look at use case study of breaking a Monolithic application into Microservices for deployment into cloud by providing reference architecture and best practices approach.Read more >
The Cloud Standards Customer Council has published a reference architecture for securing workloads on cloud services. The aim of this new guide is to provide a practical reference to help IT architects and IT security professionals architect, install, and operate the information security components of solutions built using cloud services.
Building business solutions using cloud services requires a clear understanding of the available security services, components and options, allied to a clear architecture which provides for the complete lifecycle of the solutions, covering development, deployment and operations. This webinar will discuss specific security services and corresponding best practices for deploying a comprehensive cloud security architecture.

The CSCC has published an API Management reference architecture that describes how to build and maintain an effective API Management platform that drives digital transformation. APIs allow companies to open up data and services to external third party developers, business partners, and internal departments within the company to create innovative channel applications and new business opportunities.
An effective API management platform provides a layer of controlled and secure self-service access to core business assets for reuse. In this webinar, the authors of the reference architecture will cover the architectural components and capabilities that make up a superior API Management Platform and will also cover important runtime characteristics and deployment considerations.
Join AWS Premier Partner, 2nd Watch, for the Modern Application Architecture in the public cloud webinar. Learn about modern application development methodologies for the public cloud - including how to leverage the cloud to improve application development and business agility, - the new way of orchestrating application and systems architecture for the cloud and modern IT, and which AWS services and tools to use for modern application architectures.Read more >
Cloud Architects responsible for designing infrastructure for IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, and CDN have critical decisions to make when selecting flash storage solutions based on capacities, interface, and performance attributes. Selecting appropriate flash memory for particular workloads affects node density, cloud services performance, and optimal scale.
To help guide cloud architects through the decision making process for scale-out cloud architectures, Chris Marsh, SanDisk Cloud Marketing Manager, will describe flash solutions for various workloads and the particular SanDisk flash storage product attributes to enable boundless cloud computing.
In this webinar, the CSCC will share a reference architecture for delivering Enterprise Social Collaboration solutions. The presentation will cover the technical capabilities and integration requirements necessary to enable social collaboration. Presenters will discuss the flows and relationships between business capabilities, functional areas, and architectural components delivered as a cloud solution.
Attendees will gain a better understanding of how to leverage social collaboration tools to harness ideas, exchange information, and increase the speed of innovation across the business. The presenters will demonstrate a real-world example to illustrate these points.
While cloud computing and storage are where IT is going, it is important to get the most value out of your existing data center assets. Seamless integration between these assets and cloud resources is key to optimizing each to match agency needs. But, how difficult is it to build a hybrid cloud architecture? How do you maximize performance while keeping security and cost in check?

Joint AWS and Alert Logic On-Demand Webinar - The Realities of Security in the Cloud
After years of FUD around cloud and security, we have now got beyond people insisting the cloud could 'never be secure'; major companies are moving secure and compliant workloads to the cloud on a daily basis. As threats and attacks evolve, anyone with public facing infrastructure needs to be aware of the threats they are potentially facing - Crime-as-a-service has become a reality.
With the shared security model, applications hosted in the public cloud are your responsibility, and not AWS. The biggest challenge you have is that web applications are also the most targeted from cyber attacks, and you need to ensure that you have a solid security foundation to be able to continuously monitor and protect your workloads from compromise.
In this on-demand webinar, Ian Massingham, AWS Technical Evangelist and James Brown, Alert Logic Director of Cloud Computing and Solutions Architecture will cover:
• The Shared Security Model: what security you are responsible for to protect your content, applications, systems and network v AWS
• Live Hack Demo where we will show how web applications are attacked and show the latest tricks attackers are using
• Best Practices for how to protect your environment from the latest threats
• Hear how customers are securing their production workloads on AWS including complying with PCI DSS requirements
