The modernization of the data center and move to the cloud—in combination with increasing consumer pressure to protect cardholder information and an expanding corporate focus on data protection—can make the process of PCI compliance daunting. The good news is that help is available and can make things easier for CISOs trying to balance security and compliance with business agility.Read more >
The cloud is here to stay. However, that also means more and more companies are realizing that they’ve built two separate IT teams and are struggling to deliver quality services without a unified view. A true hybrid monitoring solution is the answer to this common problem.
Join Jay Lyman, Analyst at 451 Research, and Kent Erickson, Alliance Strategist at Zenoss, as they discuss what is shaping hybrid IT, where it's going, and what to do about it.
Enterprises are faced with new challenges in the emerging hybrid cloud market. Planning to move workloads to the cloud is a delicate maneuver where the needs of the business user and IT need to be met. Business users want greater agility and speed. IT needs to balance the use of legacy systems while including cloud in their enterprise environment for innovation.
Join us as we explore how to assess the benefit and readiness of moving an application to the cloud and comparing providers. With these first steps, using IBM CloudMatrix brokerage solution, you get expertise to help prioritize and create your cloud strategy.
With enterprise cloud adoption on the rise, CIOs are faced with creating a cloud strategy that will deliver greater business value and innovation. And while most are turning to hybrid cloud, this model does not factor in legacy infrastructure or give business users the unified experience they demand. The true solution is an integrated, multi-sourced operating model called Hybrid IT. The 451 Group VP of Research William Fellows shares why moving to the Hybrid IT model is the most complete approach and best practices for selecting the process and tools to get started.Read more >
A true hybrid cloud operating model requires the seamless integration of physical and virtual apps and services across data centers and clouds, without modification. That is very difficult to do. Yet the promise of unprecedented agility, protection and scale for multi-tier apps is very powerful. So CloudVelocity CTO and Co-Founder Anand Iyengar will take you through the critical steps required and share examples of payoffs already received by forward-thinking IT organizations that are now operating in hybrid clouds.Read more >
Enterprises adopting virtualization will find themselves managing thousands of network security changes per week.
Handling these changes effectively and securely requires visibility and control across virtual and physical infrastructure.
A security policy orchestration solution can address the security and agility challenges with a single console that monitors and manages security policies across hybrid IT.
In this session we will discuss real life examples of the challenges in network virtualization and how they can be addressed through orchestration.
Hybrid clouds are rapidly emerging as the ideal model for data-driven applications. The allure of better performance and agility at a lower total cost is compelling to business and technical managers alike.
But how do you stay in control of your data? Through this webcast, you'll see how IBM clients and Business Partners are taking advantage of hybrid clouds, and how they're resolving the important issues of data management, data protection, and data security.
A growing number of enterprises are running applications in the cloud for production needs, while also running the bulk of their applications in physical data centers.
Managing network security in a hybrid IT environment brings many new challenges, such as:
- Lack of visibility
- Difficulty to ensure compliance across multiple vendors
- Maintaining network connectivity of business critical applications
Join our webinar to learn how to effectively manage Security Policy across hybrid cloud and physical networks. In this session we will share the key challenges that our customers experience when migrating workloads to the cloud, as well as methods to mitigate these challenges.
With datasets continuing to grow larger and cloud computing getting easier to set up and use, one of the biggest challenges facing IT departments responsible for managing Apache Hadoop environments is how to efficiently support and enable data storage. The main choice for moving data to cloud-based Hadoop deployments is to use HDFS, but efficiencies and processes have not gotten to a level that is both sustainable and repeatable while being affordable for IT organizations.
In this 30-minute webinar, speaker Scott Jeschonek will look at the current best practices of using HDFS and Hadoop completely in the cloud. Next, he will highlight the limitations of this approach by contrasting classic on-premises Hadoop with Hadoop in the cloud, suggesting that the two are not the same. Finally, a new approach will be proposed that enables the use of Hadoop compute clusters while data is kept in its on-premises source instead of loading into the cloud. Participants will be able to consider a "Hybrid Hadoop" workflow that provides the economics needed for replication with more flexibility in the data source location, and the efficiency of eliminating the load process before cloud compute jobs.
Despite increasing cloud adoption in IT departments, many organizations are still concerned with data security. Those concerns are amplified by the loss of physical control over data and the potential for mismanagement of those assets when migrating to the cloud. As a result, this is often the top barrier to cloud deployment. However, with cloud innovations growing exponentially, the new wave of security solutions is breaking down those barriers.
In this webinar, Alert Logic cyber security evangelist, Paul Fletcher, will provide you with insight on how to get over hybrid cloud security hurdles and discuss:
• Common misconceptions surrounding hybrid cloud security
• Key strategies to secure a hybrid cloud environment
• Solutions to security threats within multiple hybrid cloud environments
The Cloud Standards Customer Council will define hybrid cloud computing, explain why this deployment model is essential for addressing business requirements, and outline the key considerations that customers must take into account as they start their transition. The presentation will include strategic and tactical activities for decision makers implementing hybrid cloud solutions. It will cover all the essential technical considerations for hybrid cloud deployment including integration, connectivity, governance, management, security and privacy.Read more >
Rarely have IT organizations been challenged with so many disruptive changes at one time. Increasing use of cloud services, the expanding need for cloud to on-premises integration, and the accelerating use of social and mobile applications demand the answer to a new question – how does all this effect how IT manages its infrastructure to best support the business.
Cloud computing and all its instantiations (SaaS, IaaS, PaaS) must now be reconciled with on-premises IT applications and managed within the context of an enterprise's business strategy, processes and operations.
In this webinar 451 Research analyst Carl Lehmann will address:
•What makes hybrid cloud architecture different from traditional IT infrastructure and why it matters
•The business and technical issues associated with IT management in hybrid cloud era
•How to craft a reference architecture to guide investment strategy for hybrid IT
Participants will learn the goals, techniques and tools needed to bring synergy to on-premises and cloud resources so they execute and adapt as a uniform platform for business operations.
Most enterprises deploy both private MPLS and public broadband Internet to some or all of their branch offices. The right SD-WAN solution will dramatically improve the utilization, performance and ease of management of the these hybrid deployments.
