Join us for a webcast that will give you an in-depth view of IaaS and how it can help organisations like yours.Read more >
Since March 2016, when the CSA launched this new Software-Defined Perimeter for IaaS initiative, more and more organizations have embraced the Software-Defined Perimeter model and are benefitting from the seamless protection it offers, whether on-premises or in the cloud. SDP can better protect IaaS services for Enterprise usage, and deliver uniform and seamless protection of on-premises and IaaS resources, enabling cost savings and agility, and a more dynamic infrastructure.
In this webinar, the leaders of the SDP-for-IaaS initiative will provide a preview of the forthcoming research and use cases that this working group has developed. This research focuses on how SDP can uniquely address security, compliance, IT administration and management challenges for cloud service providers and enterprises alike. If you’d like to hear more about securing your IaaS workloads, you’ll want to attend!
Enterprise adoption of IaaS environments has brought tremendous benefits, in terms of cost savings and agility, and enabled a more dynamic infrastructure. However, these changes have created new security, compliance, and IT administration challenges for enterprises, and management challenges for cloud service providers.
The good news is that a Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) approach can solve these problems. SDP can better protect IaaS services for Enterprise usage, and deliver uniform and seamless protection of on-premises and IaaS resources. In this webinar, Jason Garbis, Cryptzone’s VP Products, and IaaS Initiative Workgroup Chair, will provide a progress report from the new IaaS SDP Working Group initiative and an update on how SDP can uniquely address these problems for IaaS. Whether you’re with a cloud provider looking to improve management capabilities, or an enterprise that wants to bolster IaaS security initiatives, you’ll want to tune in.
ShadowIT Discovery and security of SaaS are often considered key capabilities of Cloud Access Security Broker. There is, however, one critical capability which is often overlooked; security of IaaS. Many organizations are finding out the hard way that focusing on security of SaaS is only part of the puzzle. They must address the security of their entire cloud environment, including IaaS such as AWS and Azure. Coupled with the need to secure custom apps developed on top of IaaS, security of IaaS is becoming an important capability that organizations must consider as part of their overall cloud security strategy.Read more >
Cloud IaaS delivers vastly greater business agility, service provisioning times, and economics. Cloud IaaS requires that underlying infrastructure be automated and scalable to build an on-demand delivery model providing dynamic and consistent services in a shared, multi-tenant environment. In order to do so, it is critically important that a seamless integration of application networking services with other data center infrastructure is needed to deliver dynamic L4-7 services and automated policy enforcement for service- level agreements (SLAs) and compliance in a shared, multi-tenant environment.
In this session you will learn how Integration with centralized orchestration systems with flexible RESTful APIs ensure accurate and unified configuration of network application services reducing manual configuration tasks and speeding time to implementation.
Openstack has been gaining momentum in the IaaS space for some time now. It is a great example of Open Source collaboration and many contributors (more than 15,000!) coming together to make new technology.
Often, large vendors and the organisations that represent them are seen as incompatible with the Open Source model, particularly in the storage arena. Big Tin is not required.
In this presentation Alex McDonald discuss what SNIA can offer the Open Source community, the importance of standards and where SNIA are already contributing.
Public cloud providers like Amazon and Rackspace have demonstrated the advantages of an elastic, self-service model for provisioning workloads. However the very public nature of the public cloud makes it unacceptable to many organizations. Those seeking to deliver the infrastructure as a service model to their business units are building private clouds using tools from VMware and The OpenStack.Project.
While IaaS promises lower cost and more agile infrastructure, it hides the nature of many applications from the IT department making it difficult to match storage deployment decisions to workloads. In fact, many IaaS projects stall when storage performance fails to meet user’s expectations.
This webinar will reveal the challenges facing an IaaS storage infrastructure from the tragedy of success to noisy neighbors. We’ll then explore how innovative IT organizations address these challenges when designing a storage infrastructure. Just as importantly we’ll discuss how storage workload modeling and performance testing can help you ensure performance and lower storage costs.
In this webinar, we will help you establish a performance baseline that you can use to ensure that you select the appropriate server move groups and address any server or application dependencies in your strategy. Our goal is to give you best practices that you can use when planning and executing your move to Cloud IaaS and to get the best performance out of it.Read more >
In this "Getting Cloud Right" episode we'll explore three critical best practices that can help ensure the long-term success of your infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) efforts. Like many in enterprise IT, you may be looking at IaaS as a way to extend your data center virtualization success and get one step closer to a cloud-based IT delivery model. But long-term success with IaaS requires much more than simply provisioning virtual machines. Through real-world insight and advice, our cloud and IaaS expert, Muneer Mubashir, Group Marketing Manager for Cloud and Automation, HP Software, will explain what this means. Additionally, Mubashir will share 3 critical IaaS best practices: Process—why it still matters; how compliance needs to be part of every policy; the importance of taking a phased approach and focusing on quick wins.Read more >
This session offers an opportunity for IT professionals in all disciplines to witness and experience from zero to deployment in minutes on an emerging computing platform. It is an accelerated learning of Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Services (IaaS) and Windows Azure PowerShell Cmdlets. We will start with a brief overview of Microsoft Azure and the IaaS solution, then walk through a deployment process while examining essential components of Microsoft Azure IaaS.
For those who would like to follow along, you can acquire a Microsoft Azure 30-day free trial subscription at https://www.brighttalk.com/r/Frs to be able to deploy resources.
Microsoft Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provides customers the ability to easily host both Windows and Linux virtual machines in the cloud, as well as allow businesses to provide secure access to these custom built servers. This session will demo the use of Azure IaaS and outline how to architect secure access to these cloud services using a site-to-site VPN.

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) is one of the many emerging services being offered in the cloud and there are plenty of providers to choose from. When companies are considering moving to cloud IaaS, it is important for them to understand how it will benefit their business and what implications need to be considered when choosing the right IaaS provider. Most IaaS providers are using the same pricing models, which are inventory based; on the amount of gigabytes and RAM on existing server hardware, it is essentially a pay-as-you-grow model. In some cases, IaaS may not even be the right solution for their business, there may be other models better suited for their needs. We will explore a different approach to IaaS pricing, how to understand what is needed before deciding on a IaaS provider. Our goal is to help businesses take control of their IaaS project.
Why today's IaaS pricing models are not efficient.
