Microsegmentation: Protecting Applications in the Modern Datacenter
Application requirements on the datacenter are changing rapidly. With the addition of cloud native applications, multi-tenancy, and connections to public clouds, the complexity of virtualization and network security has grown exponentially. Microsegmentation can be a crucial tool in the security architectures of the modern datacenter. Administrators can leverage it to get granular at the application level in addition to gaining visibility into application interactions that are not possible using a traditional perimeter security model. In this session, join Mike Wronski from the Nutanix product team to learn more about how the concepts and principals of software defined networking (SDN) with microsegmentation can be applied to network and application security. Mike will review the technology behind microsegmentation, highlight common use cases, and dig into the unique implementation that is native to the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS.

Is it possible to architect an enterprise cloud as good as a public cloud? Big Switch and Nutanix are transforming data centers by leveraging public cloud constructs as first principles for architecting enterprise private clouds. Big Switch’s Big Cloud Fabric (BCF) provides invisible (zero-touch) networking to Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) based on Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV). BCF leverages cloud-first networking principles in two ways:
(1) leaf-spine design based on open networking switches with SDN controls, and
(2) public cloud VPC-style logical networking that is API integrated with Nutanix Prism.
This joint solution enables unprecedented operational velocity, network automation at VM speed and end-to-end network visibility & troubleshooting. With Big Switch + Nutanix Enterprise Cloud operating just like a public cloud in terms of economics and operational workflows, customers can now optimize app placement across public and private clouds based on app’s needs for elasticity, cost and performance.
This webinar will cover:
-How Nutanix Enterprise Cloud delivers agility, simplicity and pay-as-you-grow economics of public clouds to enterprise HCI
-How BCF-EC’s Enterprise VPC based logical networking brings public-cloud like network automation and deep visibility for Nutanix AHV deployments
-How the joint solution enables deployment flexibility and infrastructure elasticity
-Customer success story: How Nutanix uses Big Switch in their own data centers

The rapid adoption of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions have been due to their proven ability to deliver scalability, agility, reduced costs, storage redundancy, and reliability. While these are great benefits, perhaps one of the elements that is garnering the most attention right now is data security. Nutanix certainly knows this and is working hard with Thales eSecurity to protect the confidentiality and integrity of sensitive data through strong encryption of user and application data. When used with Vormetric Data Security Manager (DSM), the combined solution provides FIPS certified robust key management and role separation to meet the most stringent security requirements.
In this webinar, we will examine the key elements of the joint solution as well as what may be the best options for your organization.
• Understand the types of encryption and their characteristics
• Understand the critical role of best-in-class key management
• Learn how to go beyond the encryption basics
