85% of organisations are committed to a multi-cloud architecture. The other 15% are probably doing it by accident. However, with every additional cloud comes increased operational complexity, a new set of interfaces, and another potential security loophole to worry about.
Help your organisation nullify these challenges and succeed in a multi-cloud world by providing the key principles, solutions, technologies, and tools that enable you to deliver services consistently, efficiently, and securely across all your clouds.
In this webinar, you will learn:
5 key principles including abstraction, standardisation, and automation ‒ the new imperatives for network operations
How planning for a multi-cloud architecture will help you avoid the pitfalls of disparate environments across multiple cloud providers
Common use cases that will give you the confidence to deploy your cloud apps in a fast, controlled, and more secure manner
What does modernizing the infrastructure for public cloud really mean? And what does your on-premises infrastructure have to do with an off-premises public cloud? Join us for this webcast and learn why modernizing your infrastructure is part of the journey for successful adoption of cloud computing. We’ll cover how you are well positioned for success with a VMware vSphere® foundation, and can continue the journey to a software-defined approach by virtualizing across the data center from compute to storage to networking, and adding unified management for intelligent operations. Specifically you’ll learn about:
· Components of a modernized infrastructure
· How to evolve to a software-defined environment
· Use cases of modernizing the infrastructure
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.
In the early days of aviation, flight instrumentation made it safer to fly in bad weather. Today, cloud computing is taking off and revolutionizing how applications are built and delivered. But while these technologies offer new possibilities, they also can obscure visibility and make it much more difficult for IT Operations teams to detect security threats and diagnose the root cause of performance issues.
There is hope: the network remains the common denominator for all applications and provides a source of real-time insight across hybrid, multi-cloud environments.
In this webinar, IDC Research Director Brad Casemore and ExtraHop’s Director of Solutions Architecture, Eric Thomas, discuss how organizations can tap into network communications and maintain visibility for security and performance.
You put your data where? Protecting your data in the hybrid cloud.
We’ve heard it before: “I can’t use the cloud because my data won’t be secure or compliant!” You might feel the same. Many companies struggle with this challenge, yet even government agencies with the strictest data privacy requirements use the cloud.
In today’s rapidly changing world, how can you tell which clouds and cloud types are right for your organization’s needs, now and in the future? Wouldn’t it be great to use a public cloud for more workloads, even those with sensitive data and compliance requirements?
In our webcast, "You Put Your Data Where? Protecting Your Data in the Hybrid Cloud," we will share how public organizations with strict data privacy regulations leverage and deploy hybrid cloud to meet their business needs. NetApp’s partner 1901 Group will speak about a government law enforcement agency that has deployed hybrid cloud to gain better access to compute capabilities while keeping legal data under lock and key. Additionally, BriteSky, a Canada-based service provider, will discuss how they help customers use cloud resources and still maintain sovereignty over their corporate data.
Whether you’re a public or private company, government agency, U.S.-based or multinational organization, this informative webcast will help you put your data where it's accessible to cloud infrastructures yet fully protected. Join us to learn how NetApp and our partners help people like you meet data compliance and data sovereignty requirements and deploy cloud architectures to suit your business needs.
By 2020, a corporate "no-cloud" policy will be as rare as a "no-internet" policy is today, according to Gartner, Inc. While cloud makes enterprises more flexible and agile, various cloud adoption scenarios such as hybrid cloud, infrastructure modernization and cloud based analytics present a few challenges of their own.
Attend this session to learn:
• Challenges involved with various cloud adoption scenarios
• How data virtualization solves cloud adoption challenges while centralizing data governance and security mechanism
• How companies are using data virtualization to tackle complex modern customer segmentation problems such as “customer genomics”
• Challenges of cloud adoption
• Data virtualization to the rescue
• Product demonstration
Offering organizations of all sizes the benefits of agility and scalability, the adoption of public cloud continues at a pace rivaled only by that of the early days of the Internet era. With the underlying premise that the public cloud is someone else’s computer, and an extension of your network this session will cover public cloud security concerns, what the shared security responsibility model really means and recommendations for protecting your public cloud workloads and data.Read more >
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 >
