DevOps and the Cloud: Achieving Faster Application Delivery

Bernard Golden, Vice President of Strategy, ActiveState
Today, developers and business units are leading the charge to cloud computing. The primary driver: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), providing faster access to computing resources by automating infrastructure provisioning. However, fast access to infrastructure exposes the next friction point: creating, delivering, and operating applications much faster.

Join this webinar to learn how you can leverage DevOps, service catalogs and frameworks to achieve the true goal of IT: delivering increased business value through applications.

Areas addressed include:

- Application lifecycle automation
- Self-provisioning of cloud services by users and business units
- Your DevOps solution: Build vs. buy
- Organizational requirements to integrate development and operations
- Typical benefits from development and operations integration

  • Pass-the-hash and similar credential theft and reuse attacks are among the greatest security threats facing organizations today. With an impact that extends well beyond Microsoft Windows and Active Directory environments — and with no definitive means of remediation — it should come as no surprise that these types of attacks have been an underlying component of just about every targeted attack disclosed in the past several years, including those perpetrated against Saudi Aramco, Target, and The Wall Street Journal — just to name few.

    Join us Thursday, February 26th at 1 pm to learn:

    - How this highly popular and devastatingly effective class of attacks works
    - The basics of the pass-the-hash kill chain
    - An approach, based on design and administrative best practices, for mitigating attacks
    - The role privileged identity management solutions, like Xsuite, can play in implementing these practices

  • As a business, concerns over RTO, RPO, costs, security, and data privacy have historically made the decision for cloud backup a complicated one. However, cloud technologies continue to evolve, and can now provide substantial cost benefits while overcoming the most stringent security, data privacy, storage and performance hurdles. This makes it a perfect fit for many backup needs — especially remote office server backup.

    In this session we’ll cover:

    * The state of the cloud and the latest advancements for D2C server backup
    * How security and data storage advancements are addressing key enterprise data privacy concerns
    * How to leverage the cloud for remote office server backup and archiving, while significantly lowering storage and administration expenses

  • 10 Steps for Moving Applications to the Cloud Recorded: Jun 19 2014 50 mins
    Although most companies have only partially virtualized their data centers, CIOs and IT Directors recognize that the cloud is the future of IT. As web and mobile applications become a requirement of doing business, IT organizations know that they will be the ones tasked with moving their business forward. So what steps do they need to take in order to get to their organizations "to the cloud"?

    There are a number of variables that need to be considered: What are the benefits of moving my infrastructure to a more agile IaaS platform, such as OpenStack? What other architecture layers, such as PaaS, should I be considering? What are the pros and cons of using public infrastructure, such as Amazon EC2. Can I run everything behind my firewall? Is a hybrid private-plus-public infrastructure a viable option? Do we need to adopt a DevOps approach before we proceed?

    Join Phil Whelan, Technology Evangelist, and Troy Topnik, Technical Communications Manager, as they walk through 10 steps IT organizations can take when adopting cloud technologies – from starting small, and gaining expertise, to rolling out IaaS, PaaS and continuous integration. In this webinar they will take a look at:

    - Starting off in the right direction
    - Automating the configuration
    - Continuous Integration (CI) tools
    - Where IaaS and PaaS fit in – are you ready to build your cloud stack?
    - Implementing a DevOps culture
  • Workload Portability: Using PaaS to Achieve the Vision of Hybrid Cloud Computing Recorded: May 28 2014 54 mins
    Endless discussions of hybrid cloud computing obscure its true goal: enabling businesses to deploy application workloads to whatever computing environment best suits the application's characteristics. This presentation will focus on the challenges presented by traditional visions of hybrid cloud computing and how they can be addressed by focusing on the application layer rather than the infrastructure layer.

    Attendees will learn:
    - The shortcomings of typical hybrid cloud computing
    - How workload portability enables more – and better – application deployment options
    - Why using an application framework accelerates application development and deployment
    - First steps toward implementing a productive hybrid cloud strategy
