    • ISO Cloud Computing Interoperability and Portability Standards
      ISO Cloud Computing Interoperability and Portability Standards Cloud Standards Customer Council Recorded: Oct 26 2017 3:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    • For cloud computing, interoperability and portability related challenges are likely to intensify and become more difficult to manage as systems grow more complex and interconnected, especially with the use of multiple cloud services as part of a system. In this webinar, the Cloud Standards Customer Council will receive an update on a new ISO Cloud Computing Interoperability and Portability specification - ISO/IEC 19941. This new ISO standard specifies cloud computing interoperability and portability types and the relationship and interactions between these two cross-cutting aspects of cloud computing. It also provides a model to enable a clear description of interoperability and portability when building and using systems based on cloud computing.

      Attending this webinar is beneficial for all parties involved in cloud computing – cloud service customers, cloud service providers, and cloud service partners – to gain a common understanding of interoperability and portability for their specific needs.

    • Toward Internet of Everything: Architectures, Standards, & Interoperability
      Toward Internet of Everything: Architectures, Standards, & Interoperability Ram D. Sriram, Chief of the Software and Systems Division, IT Lab at National Institute of Standards and Technology Recorded: Jun 21 2017 3:00 pm UTC 63 mins
    • In this talk, Ram will provide a unified framework for Internet of Things, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Smart Networked Systems and Societies, and then discuss the role of ontologies for interoperability.

      The Internet, which has spanned several networks in a wide variety of domains, is having a significant impact on every aspect of our lives. These networks are currently being extended to have significant sensing capabilities, with the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT). With additional control, we are entering the era of Cyber-physical Systems (CPS). In the near future, the networks will go beyond physically linked computers to include multimodal-information from biological, cognitive, semantic, and social networks.

      This paradigm shift will involve symbiotic networks of people (social networks), smart devices, and smartphones or mobile personal computing and communication devices that will form smart net-centric systems and societies (SNSS) or Internet of Everything. These devices – and the network -- will be constantly sensing, monitoring, interpreting, and controlling the environment.

      A key technical challenge for realizing SNSS/IoE is that the network consists of things (both devices & humans) which are heterogeneous, yet need to be interoperable. In other words, devices and people need to interoperate in a seamless manner. This requires the development of standard terminologies (or ontologies) which capture the meaning and relations of objects and events. Creating and testing such terminologies will aid in effective recognition and reaction in a network-centric situation awareness environment.

      Before joining the Software and Systems Division (his current position), Ram was the leader of the Design and Process group in the Manufacturing Systems Integration Division, Manufacturing Engineering Lab, where he conducted research on standards for interoperability of computer-aided design systems.

    • Introducing the OMG Cloud Working Group
      Introducing the OMG Cloud Working Group Cloud Standards Customer Council Recorded: Jul 19 2018 4:00 pm UTC 55 mins
    • This presentation is intended for members of the Cloud Standards Customer Council™ (CSCC™) and will explain the transition of the CSCC to the newly formed OMG® Cloud Working Group in July 2018.

      The Object Management Group® (OMG®) is an IT standards development organization headquartered in Needham, MA, USA with a longstanding history (nearly 30 years!) of supporting software standards and communities of practice. The OMG launched the Cloud Standards Customer Council in 2011 to serve as a source of vendor-neutral guidance on cloud computing best practices, standards and opportunities for standardization. Contributing members of the CSCC published 28 whitepapers and reference architectures to highlight customer requirements and advance the successful adoption of cloud computing.

      The OMG is transitioning this program to a Cloud Working Group. The Cloud Working Group will maintain and update the deliverables published by the CSCC over the course of 2011-2018, and initiate new projects under the OMG Cloud Working Group umbrella.

      This webinar will –
      • introduce the OMG and its structure for developing standards and discussion papers
      • explain the operations of the Cloud Working Group and how to get involved
      • facilitate Q&A with CSCC members

    • How to Survive Against Increasing Regulatory Compliance and Industry Standards
      How to Survive Against Increasing Regulatory Compliance and Industry Standards Chris Payne, Security Evangelist at Infinigate UK Upcoming: Oct 31 2018 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • In the last few years, organisations have weathered an onslaught of IT and information security regulations and industry standards. From ISO 27001 to the GDPR to SWIFT, 2018 has failed to buck the trend; and organisations now find themselves attempting to adhere to multiple regulations/standards.

      The key to surviving this brave new world is a programme of integrated compliance, where new solutions and controls must compliment all regulations, saving time, effort and ultimately money.

      In this webinar, Chris Payne – Security Evangelist at Infinigate UK, is joined by Blackfoot Compliance Specialists, Becrypt, GFI Software and Ipswitch where they will discuss integrated compliance and how they have helped their customers to achieve this. You will learn:

      -What integrated compliance is
      -How a number of regulations and industry standards overlap
      -Which solutions can help you with a programme of integrated compliance
      -How customers have seen success in when implementing mutually complimentary solutions and controls

    • Migrating Applications to Public Cloud Services: Roadmap for Success V2.0
      Migrating Applications to Public Cloud Services: Roadmap for Success V2.0 Cloud Standards Customer Council Recorded: Mar 28 2018 3:00 pm UTC 58 mins
    • As organizations consider migrating applications to the cloud, a business plan and detailed migration plan is critical to success. Version 2.0 covers the key considerations of cloud migration and takes into account the increasing diversity of approaches such as the use of containers, virtual machines and serverless functions, as well as the increasing use of hybrid cloud solutions. In addition, mitigating concerns related to security, privacy and data residency is a major focus of the update.

      In this webinar, authors of the paper will discuss each of the six steps outlined in the migration roadmap:

      1.Assess your applications and workloads
      2.Build a business case
      3.Develop a technical approach
      4.Adopt a flexible integration model
      5.Address compliance, security, privacy and data residency requirements
      6.Manage the migration

    • IP-Based Object Drives Now Have a Management Standard
      IP-Based Object Drives Now Have a Management Standard Erik Riedel, Dell EMC, Enrico Signoretti, OpenIO, David Slik, NetApp, Alex McDonald, NetApp Recorded: Apr 20 2017 5:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    • The growing popularity of object-based storage has resulted in the development of Ethernet-connected storage devices, herein referred to as IP-Based Drives and subsystems supporting object interfaces and in some cases the ability to run localized applications.
      Typical scale-out storage nodes consist of relatively inexpensive enclosures with IP network connectivity, CPU, Memory and Direct Attached Storage (DAS). While inexpensive to deploy, these solutions become harder to manage over time.
      To ease management of these drives, SNIA has approved the release of the IP-Based Drive Management Specification. In this webcast, you’ll hear from authors of the specification who’ll discuss:

      • Major Components of the IP Based Drive Management Standard
      • How the standard leverages the DMTF Redfish management standard to manage Kinetic and other IP-Based Drives
      • Providing a standard management interface for drives that are part of JBOD or JBOF enclosures

      This standard allows drive management to scale to datacenters and beyond, enabling automation and Software Defined Datacenters.
