The Magic of Interconnection Services: Balancing Network Cost & Performance

Network-dense, interconnection-oriented facilities are not easy to replicate and are typically able to charge higher prices for colocation, as well as charge for cross-connects and, in some cases, access to public Internet exchange platforms and cloud platforms. Mobility, the Internet of Things, SaaS, IaaS and content delivery all depend on network performance. This presentation will look at the following issues:

- How will Open-IX and the launch of European-model exchanges impact the interconnection market?
- What are the networking and datacenter technologies that can disrupt this market?
- What are the advantages of Direct Connect services?

  • Demystifying Attack Simulation: Top 3 Ways to Get More From Your Security Jul 19 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Dan Cummins, Senior Analyst, 451 Research & Chris Webber, Director of Product Marketing, SafeBreach
    IT security teams are busier than ever, with executives and board members taking a newfound interest thanks to headline-level breaches. With all this scrutiny, validating whether security controls are actually working is key.

    Red teams, white-hat external penetration testers, and internal scanners can provide some assurance, but with attacks and successful breaches continuing to increase, IT must find new ways to stay out of the headlines. If current market spend is any indicator, many enterprises are simply throwing more tools at the problem—but that can just add to security complexity, and open gaps in policy.

    Automated attack simulations can help IT stay ahead of attackers, and break out of the constant buying cycle, by getting more from existing security controls.

    •Extend/enhance red teams and penetration testers
    •Reduce exposure time
    •Verify that existing tools are working as expected

    Join Dan Cummins, Senior Analyst, 451 Research and Chris Webber, Director of Product Marketing, SafeBreach as they explore breach and attack simulation technology.
  • Pervasive Intelligence: The IoT Computing Continuum Jul 18 2017 7:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Christian Renaud, Research Director, Internet of Things

This webinar will look at key drivers behind the re-emergence of the edge in IoT analytics and the growing demand for near-edge aggregation models to solve for application latency and cost constraints.
  • Why Hybrid IT is a Big Opportunity for Managed Security Service Providers Jul 18 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Aaron Sherrill, Senior Analyst
    The enterprise is shifting away from on–premise-only IT to a Hybrid IT model that delivers services using internal resources and/or external resources and services, often from multiple providers. While this model of IT can result in cost savings, performance optimization and greater agility, it also significantly increases the complexities of cybersecurity for the enterprise. Enterprises already struggling with cybersecurity will need help to address these concerns – concerns that many enterprises are not aware of or are unable to tackle. The Hybrid IT model does, however, present unique challenges for Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs), as these providers will be asked to secure environments that span multiple platforms, and in some cases disparate business units. MSSPs are poised to benefit from this shift if they can deliver services to address and mitigate these threats.

However, latency, data volume and availability requirements will vary, dictating datacenter requirements and their physical placement. Increasingly distributed compute and storage will create new opportunities for colocation and service providers, as well as for datacenter technologies and services suppliers. This webinar reviews how the next generation of edge computing is redefining datacenter infrastructure.
  • When Channel Meets Cloud: How Distribution is Adopting the “as-a-Service” Model Jul 18 2017 1:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Rory Duncan, Research Director
    As the virtualization of IT has increased, the traditional role of the channel partner has changed. Much of the physical infrastructure delivered through distribution has become invisible to end-users, while hyper-convergence has narrowed both hardware and software supply requirements further. Despite this, the role of the channel has never been more important in terms of the delivery of services for support, maintenance and consulting. And with the emergence of new kinds of managed services, hardware appliances, and security requirements, the ability to “connect the dots” will become a key differentiator for those with long-term customer relationships. In this session, Rory Duncan, Research Director for Managed Services & Hosting will outline some of the pitfalls as well as the opportunities for IT distribution partners in the era of Cloud.

  • Red Hat and Microsoft: Partnering to bring Enterprise Customers to the Cloud Jun 30 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Carl Lehmann - 451 Research Principal Analyst, Margaret Dawson - Red Hat, Jose Miguel Parrella - Microsoft
    Join our webinar on the capabilities enabled between Microsoft and Red Hat, and how their IT ecosystems support and complement each other.

    For years Windows and Linux have been rival development and runtime environments used by two distinct development communities – .Net vs. J2EE. At least that’s what we thought. In fact, they are not rivals at all, really. Rather, they are both commonly used by nearly all enterprises to develop and execute the applications they need to run their businesses.

    Today, those applications are being modernized, containerized and redeployed across multiple clouds. Business and IT planners alike are rethinking how to develop new cloud-native applications and the infrastructure needed to deploy them to their best execution venue whether on-premises, in or across private, public or hybrid clouds. They expect the IT vendors and service providers they use to do more than just coexist. They expect partnerships dedicated to customer success – and none more so than among the two leading vendors in each community, Microsoft and Red Hat.

    In this webinar 451 Research Principal Analyst Carl Lehmann, Margaret Dawson, Global Product Marketing Manager at Red Hat
    and Jose Miguel Parrella,Sr Product Marketing Manager for Open Source at Microsoft will address:
    •How to overcome common challenges of application modernization, infrastructure management, and cloud deployment.
    •The partnership, and capabilities enabled therein, between Microsoft and Red Hat.
    •How Microsoft Azure and Red Hat ecosystems support and complement each other.

    Participants will learn how Microsoft and Red Hat build upon each other’s strengths in container-based, cloud-native application development, infrastructure deployment and operations to better serve their mutual customers through joint business practices, technology support, and ecosystem.
