    • Key considerations of an effective cloud strategy
      Key considerations of an effective cloud strategy Matt Nolan, senior cloud architect, Red Hat & Stephane Lefrere, director, cloud infrastructure practice, Red Hat Recorded: Oct 31 2017 6:00 pm UTC 40 mins
    • One of the most pressing questions enterprises have to answer is: “Should we move to the cloud or stay on-premise?” For many, the answer is a blend of both. Determining your organization’s cloud strategy can be complex. Important considerations must be made around security and compliance requirements, balancing the needs of developers, as well as the existing infrastructure implementations.

      In this webinar, we’ll identify multiple considerations you’ll face when starting to think about your cloud strategy and walk through how to manage those critical choices. We’ll cover how to:
      - Evaluate the mix of private and public cloud options are best for your business
      - Prioritize services for your developers and end users
      - Identify new approaches to enable freedom of choice, mobility, and accelerate service delivery
      - Define a cloud strategy that accelerates your ability to deliver new applications and innovative solutions

    • The Ins & Outs of Your Ever-Evolving Cloud Security Strategy
      The Ins & Outs of Your Ever-Evolving Cloud Security Strategy Dan Pitman, Senior Solution Architect, Alert Logic Upcoming: Feb 27 2018 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • There is plenty to consider when building your cloud strategy and for many organisations this journey has only just started. If you’re thinking of moving your IT workloads to a cloud environment, you should also consider security in the cloud. Public cloud providers have always operated under a shared-responsibility model, where the provider controls the foundational infrastructure and the customer controls everything above that. But during the past year, in particular, it has shifted to add services that root out security threats higher up the stack. Is this enough to cover the full breadth of things? Find out and join our webinar facilitated by Dan Pitman, Senior Solution Architect, who will dispense tangible insights and best security practices that will put any cloud security dilemma into perspective.

      Highlights include:

      •Understanding your cloud provider’s security model and where you need to assume security responsibility
      •Cloud providers introduce new security services and tools that provide more information, but why this isn’t enough?
      •Best practice ideas for ensuring security in any cloud environment

      This is part one of a three-part webinar series focussed on your security journey to the cloud. Stay tuned for part two coming soon.

      New Options for Running SAP Software in a Multi-Cloud World Chris Brown, Nutanix & Greg White, Nutanix Recorded: Jan 30 2018 6:00 pm UTC 55 mins
    • The cloud era has reset expectations of enterprise IT services. Internal and external consumers of IT resources demand the agility and scalability of public clouds no matter what infrastructure they are using. As a result, today’s CIOs and infrastructure, Basis, and DBA teams are looking to have true cloud-like simplicity and flexibility in their datacenters to stay competitive and support their business. They must also support workloads outside the datacenter on public, hybrid and edge clouds without adding complexity.
      What does this new enterprise IT stack look like, and how can organizations leverage the latest innovations as they put their datacenter and cloud strategies into practice for their SAP and non-SAP workloads? Attend this session to hear real-world examples and discussion of these topics, including:

      • How to build and implement a successful cloud strategy

    • How to Eliminate Cloud Waste with a Holistic DevOps Strategy
      How to Eliminate Cloud Waste with a Holistic DevOps Strategy Chris Parlette, Director of Cloud Solutions, ParkMyCloud Recorded: Dec 7 2017 4:00 pm UTC 47 mins
    • Renting infrastructure on demand is the most disruptive trend in IT in decades. In 2016, enterprises spent $23B on public cloud IaaS services. By 2020, that figure is expected to reach $65B. The public cloud is now used like a utility, and like any utility, there is waste. Who's responsible for optimizing the infrastructure and reducing wasted expenses? It’s DevOps.
      The excess expense, known as cloud waste, comprises several interrelated problems:
      •Services running when they don't need to be
      •Improperly sized infrastructure
      •Orphaned resources
      •Shadow IT
      There are a few core tenets of DevOps that can be applied to reducing cloud waste:
      •Holistic thinking
      •No silos
      •Rapid useful feedback
      Join Chris to learn why you should include continuous cost optimization in your DevOps processes. Automate cost control, reduce your cloud expenses, and make your life easier.
