With cloud computing now becoming a mainstream technology for most companies, new opportunities have emerged for cloud and hosting providers that extend beyond their traditional infrastructure-focused businesses. The most interesting changes in cloud infrastructure, applications and services are yet to come.
A key characteristic of Cloud 2.0 is that 70% of the opportunity is beyond infrastructure hosting, with application, managed and security services demand growing from enterprises. To capture this providers must continue to evolve their offerings to meet the increasingly complex demands of customers who are now in the driver's seat. These customers need not only infrastructure, but also wrap-around services and support that they have come to expect from their corporate IT departments.
During this data-driven discussion you will learn:
- What Cloud 2.0 means for your business
- Cloud adoption trends
- How to innovate without risk
- Who are the primary decision makers
- How customers choose a service provider and what requirements are important to them
- Where customers allocate their budgets
There are significant differences in how cloud services are delivered to various categories of users. The integration of these services with traditional IT operations will remain an important success factor but also a challenge for IT managers. The key to success is to build a bridge between private and public clouds. This Webcast expands upon our earlier SNIA Hybrid Clouds Webcast where we looked at the choices and strategies for picking a cloud provider for public and hybrid solutions. Join experts from the SNIA Cloud Storage Initiative to hear:
•Best practices to work with multiple public cloud providers
•The role of SDS in supporting a hybrid data fabric
•Hybrid cloud decision criteria
•Key implementation principles
•Real-world hybrid cloud use case
This will be a live and interactive event, please bring your questions for our experts.

While the economics of moving workloads to the cloud is well understood by small and medium sized businesses (SMBs), they often struggle with corresponding economics associated with these changes in security challenges. These SMBs often rely on service providers and suppliers for security, but how can they take control or have more of a hand in the security of the cloud services they are using? Join (ISC)2 and our sponsor Sophos on June 25, 2015 for our next From the Trenches where we’ll discuss cloud security and challenges SMBs face when leveraging cloud services.Read more >
Financial Services organizations are increasingly adopting cloud solutions, but security remains their highest priority. It’s vital to understand the protection measures that are used to guard your data and infrastructure in order to safeguard your organization against cyber threats.
In this webinar you will learn how to apply the right security measures in the cloud and how to implement preventative measures to ensure your organization is protected from cybercrime activity causing damage to financial services companies worldwide.
Organizations have been working hard to get to new levels of IT innovation, but it’s been tough going. Budget challenges, technology transitions and operational limitations have held many back from what they’d like to achieve. To really gain the upper hand, enterprises have to rethink approaches and move forward to what we’re calling the Business of Cloud 2.0.
Join us as we dig into the technology and organizational issues that are being addressed on this journey. We’ll discuss our insights and perspectives on topics such as:
• What do organizations need to do to get to greater IT service efficiency?
• Is it hyper-convergence or cloud or both?
• My cloud or your cloud? On- and off-premises technologies
• The truth about containers
• Hybrid cloud and multiple execution venue realities
• Peer benchmarking data on which workloads have made it to cloud
We’ll explore each of these, and present Voice of the Enterprise (VotE) study results of what your peers have accomplished and where they’re headed. We’ll discuss enterprise maturity, and how it affects what your organization can do and how you can make progress.

Your world will be hybrid for the foreseeable future. You will combine a mix of on-premises private cloud and public cloud infrastructure to meet ever-changing business demands. But how do you build a storage architecture designed to support this hybrid world?
This session will provide insight on how software-defined storage facilitates hybrid cloud architectures. We’ll present four scenarios and case studies where companies are thinking differently about “cloud storage.”
Specifically, you’ll learn how you can use software-defined storage to:
1. Build an OpenStack “landing pad” to onboard applications born in public clouds like AWS.
2. Create hybrid AWS-based applications with on-premises infrastructure that migrates older, colder data to the public cloud.
3. Treat public clouds as “DR sites” where applications are automatically protected across data centers and clouds.
4. Store data on private, hosted infrastructure that bursts to the public cloud for compute.
Moving to the cloud is always a difficult decision, but when you look at the impact of solutions as broad reaching as Office 365, chances are your primary concern is going to be about security. There are a number of facets and features (e-mail, OneDrive, Lync) to Office 365 and the security issues can be myriad. Join Intel Security and (ISC)2 on May 7, 2015 at 1:00PM Eastern for a discussion on how to overcome these challenges through critical protection and often overlooked best practices to build the confidence you need to securely deploy Office 365.Read more >
Cloud computing services offer significant potential economic and operational efficiencies. However, these efficiencies are often accompanied by new regulatory requirements around the security of applications and data that are stored in the cloud.
In addition, many organizations are seeing an explosion in the numbers of users that are interacting with their services, whether these are existing customers conducting transactions or ‘fans’ who are interacting with your services through social media. And while there are clear benefits from consuming IAM services from the cloud, there are important risk factors that have to be considered as well.
This session will review the pros and cons of IAM Cloud Services and provide guidance and best practices based on specific use cases to help guide organizations to a model that meets their risk profile.
