  • The Current eCommerce Threat Landscape: How to Secure Your Business Oct 1 2020 9:00 am UTC 32 mins
    Carlo Caruso (Rackspace) and Richard Meeus (Akamai)
    Running a successful ecommerce business in an increasingly complex cyber security threat environment is not for the faint hearted. As more and more business is transacted online, the frequency and sophistication of security attacks has also increased. Customers are more than aware of these risks and expect their data to be fully protected. However, at the same time, they also expect a seamless digital experience.

    For businesses, this means they need to find ways to optimise the performance of their websites without compromising security or falling short of compliance. They need better informed strategies based on intelligent insight and they need to be clear who they can and can’t trust. Rackspace and Akamai can guide your businesses through this challenge.

    Join Rackspace Application Services (RAS) EMEA Digital Lead Carlo Caruso and Akamai’s Richard Meeus Security,Technology and Strategy Director on the 30th of September at 10am BST to learn about:

  • Realise value from your data with Rackspace Technology and AWS Sep 30 2020 9:00 am UTC 60 mins

    The volume of data that most organisations have is growing at a rapid rate; however, for many organisations harnessing that data to drive business outcomes remains a challenge.

However, organisations rarely have the required technical skills and business processes to implement modern data analytics solutions.

    Topics will include:

    • Understanding your data assets

  • How to achieve affordable disaster recovery with Rackspace Managed VMware Cloud Recorded: Sep 15 2020 51 mins
    Jason Crandall and Henry Villegas
    Legacy disaster recovery solutions can be expensive but are typically required to resume operations for production workloads. Leveraging the cloud's inherent scalability for infrastructure as your DR site can simplify datacenter operations and reduce costs. With VMware Cloud on AWS, scaling compute and storage changes the complexity of a legacy DR solution. What if you could add storage without additional compute and memory, providing a more cost-effective way for DR?

    In this webinar, you’ll learn how to create a Pilot Light architecture in VMware Cloud on AWS with a minimum host footprint that can reduce cloud costs by up to 40% or more for DR! We’ll demonstrate how storage can be decoupled from compute and easily expanded on a DR event by integrating NetApp Cloud Volume Service as external storage with VMware Cloud on AWS and how to scale storage beyond cloud hypervisor quotas. We will also show you some interesting related use cases along the way too!
