Brought to you by the Vivit Automation & Cloud Builders Special Interest (SIG) Group.
Attend this webinar to receive a live demonstration of public cloud service brokering, aggregation and governance using the Micro Focus Hybrid Cloud Management solution. HCM allows IT to easily aggregate public cloud resources into an end-user catalog, while providing governance and analytics to ensure business unit consumption is visible and within budget. In addition, learn how improved control of public cloud spending can help you start building a strong business case for cloud management.
Cloud Aggregation & Brokering
- Cloud service aggregation to quickly aggregate hybrid cloud services and publish offerings in catalog
- Self-service web portal access to catalog services for end users to consume services
Hybrid Cloud Governance
- Get visibility into IT cloud costs with show-back reporting for LOBs/organizations
- Policy-based budget quota management to proactively track cloud costs and notify on quota overages
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
Combining cloud with existing infrastructure has a number of benefits, including:
-Modernizing IT systems
-Improving the pace of innovation and speeding agility
-Increasing developer productivity
Are you missing out? Are you wondering what others are using Cloud and how to get your cloud initiatives off the ground?

Several major public cloud providers now have reserved pricing. Which reserved services are worth the investment for your business? How much of a discount do reserved services typically offer?Read more >
One of the biggest barriers to cloud adoption for IT organizations is the inability to move applications to and from the cloud. HC3 Cloud Unity is a collaboration between Google and Scale Computing, to solve this problem. By linking Scale’s hyperconverged HC3 on-prem with HC3 on Google Cloud Platform a massive two-way speedway has been created that means organizations no longer have to use or create different apps for the cloud, they can utilize their apps created for on-prem to run in the Google Cloud, which will be a game changer for end users, channel partners and MSPs globally.
• Learn how to use resources in the cloud and on-prem simultaneously
• Understand how a true hybrid model works
• Seamlessly bridge an on-prem local LAN with the private virtual network on GCP
Did you know that enterprise-grade NAS (file storage) is one of the capabilities available to users of Google Cloud Platform (GCP)? In this talk, Google's Ben Chong and Zadara's Noam Shendar will discuss VPSA® Storage Arrays and how they bring on-demand, elastic, high availability, high performance file storage to GCP.Read more >
It's not a secret anymore that cloud facilitates digital transformation and that many companies are happily embracing it - slower or faster, it really depends on the IT infrastructure already in place. What remains a mystery though, is what's next?
BrightTALK has invited experts to discuss what is the cloud of the future and which trends are worth your attention to stay ahead of the game.
Cloud goes far beyond just swiping your credit card and provisioning resources.

Organizations are adopting Google® Cloud Platform to take advantage of the same technologies that drive common Google services. The power behind GCP, combined with agility and a global footprint, enables you to use the Google Cloud as the sole route to market for new application deployment. The benefits of cloud adoption are well-known, but so too are the challenges of security, possible data loss and business interruption, potentially slowing cloud adoption.
Join Palo Alto Networks® for a webinar focused on how organizations can securely move to GCP by delivering consistent workload protections that prevent data loss and business interruption.
During this webinar, we will cover:
•Security challenges that migrating to the cloud introduces
•How the Palo Alto Networks cloud security portfolio protects your data and prevents business interruption
•The role automation plays in ensuring application developers can operate at the speed of the cloud
Offering organizations of all sizes the benefits of agility and scalability, the adoption of public cloud continues at a pace rivalled only by that of the early days of the Internet era. As was the case then, the speed of adoption often means that “good enough” security is viewed as acceptable.
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.
Cloud Foundry from the Linux Foundation is a collection of complementary open source technologies focused on application developers and operators, as well as many projects to support and extend them.
In this webinar on April 24th, Chip Childers will provide an overview of Cloud Foundry technologies (Application Runtime, Container Runtime and BOSH) discussing use cases and core project updates. He will discuss the technical benefits of the platform, focus areas for 2018, and major highlights from the Cloud Foundry Summit, April 18-20 in Boston, MA.

Cloud adoption represents a major IT transformation, a shift in culture and a new way of financing your infrastructure. It presents new cost and security challenges, requiring governance and control across the organization. And it also needs a proactive team to take ownership and direction of the migration process.
In this Cloud Leaders Panel: Industry Perspectives from a CEO, CISO, & CFO, Steve Hall, VP of Marketing at CloudCheckr, will be joined by Bob Hale - CEO at Alterian, Mike Pinch - CISO at University of Rochester, and Dan Wacker - CFO at ClubReady. During this interactive discussion, we’ll uncover what the cloud means to each panel expert from their own unique perspective and learn what the key drivers are to successfully shift an organization to a cloud-first approach.
With cloud maturity comes operational efficiencies and endless potential for innovation and business growth. However, the complexities of governing cloud infrastructure are impeding without the right strategy. Visibility, accountability, and actionable insights are some of the most invaluable considerations. The AWS cloud clearly enables convenience and cost savings for organizations that know how to leverage its full potential. Amazon EC2 Reserved Instances (RIs), in particular, present a tremendous opportunity when scaling to save significantly on capacity but there are many considerations to fully reaping the benefits of RIs.
In this session, CloudCheckr CTO Patrick Gartlan will present issues that every organization runs into when scaling, provide best practices for how to combat them and help you show your boss how RIs help you save money and move faster.
