Top Five Tips to Get Your Load Balancers Ready for Black Friday and Cyber Monday

The annual holiday shopping season starting with Black Friday is the litmus test for application availability and performance for online businesses. You want to ensure that end users have the best online experience and that your business does not suffer from unexpected application outages or performance issues. These disruptions are costly both due to lost revenue and reduced customer satisfaction. With the spotlight on shopping experiences and customers and critics using social media to share updates, high profile outages can also adversely affect the reputation of the business. For network administrators and architects this means preparing their networks and load balancers to handle demand spikes and the ability to react quickly to unexpected issues.

Many IT administrators and network architects find that despite their best laid plans, things can go wrong and performance issues can bog down applications.

Learn about the top ways to make sure that your application services are ready to serve your business for the busiest time of the year.

  • Deploy Secure, Scalable Kubernetes Apps with Service Mesh and Ingress Services Recorded: May 5 2021 57 mins
    Manish Chugtu, Bhushan Pai
    As enterprises modernize and build container-based Kubernetes applications, they are confronted with a lab-to-production gap that challenges their ability to operationalize the applications. App teams need to be in sync with networking and operations teams from quickly developing and validating Kubernetes applications in dev environments to deploying the applications to productions environments.

    Is there a better approach than piecing together a mishmash of legacy or open-source tools that are disjointed and operationally complex? How can you deploy secure Kubernetes applications across hybrid cloud environments? And how can you provide a path to app modernization for your enterprise by bridging traditional and modern application components?

    In this webinar, you will learn how to:

    -Close the gap from lab-to-production and operationalize the deployment of heterogenous apps.
    -Consolidate multi-cloud, north-south application delivery services using Avi including enterprise-grade L4 load balancing, ingress controller, GSLB, web application security, and powerful observability.
    -Automate running distributed apps with secure east-west connectivity provided by Tanzu Service Mesh (TSM) within and across Kubernetes clusters and VM environments, full-service visibility, encryption, and authorization services.
    -Learn how TSM for east-west and Avi for north-south enables connectivity, security, and observability for the Kubernetes apps.

  • A Guide to Optimizing Your Application Delivery Recorded: Apr 15 2021 53 mins
    Ashish Shah, VMware | Matt Karnowski, VMware | Chandra Sekar, VMware | Oisin Murphy, IHS Markit
    Enterprises can extend their VMware environment to the AWS Cloud with VMC on AWS. They realize the benefits of the cloud while enjoying the familiar tools and workflows of their on-prem VMware environment. However, load balancing and web application security can present a hurdle to seamless hybrid cloud operations with VMC on AWS. Traditional appliance-based load balancers fall short since they are simply not architected for the cloud and don’t offer the elasticity and automation needed. On the other hand, native cloud load balancers do not offer the full range of application delivery and app security features.

    In this session, learn about:
    - Load balancing considerations for VMC on AWS
    - Avi’s Modern, cloud-native application delivery architecture
    - Customer best practices for deploying load balancing in VMC on AWS
    - How to rapidly provision applications with consistent services

  • Making Your Private Cloud Network Run Like a Public Cloud - Part 2 Recorded: Dec 1 2020 24 mins
    Ashish Shah - Sr. Director Product Management - VMware
    This is the sequel to a two-part session. The automation and flexibility of the public cloud are important for digital business. In the aftermath of significant workplace disruption caused by the pandemic to the process of setting up and operating networks and deploying new applications, enterprises are looking for the same agility in their private clouds. How can IT respond to the pressure from their internal customers to deliver applications, with resilience, Day 0-N automation, and consistent services in any cloud. Hear from VMware customers and product experts who are addressing these challenges and transforming their networks to simplify operations, save costs, and deliver that “one-click” experience to application teams.

    In this session, we will explore the modern load balancing architecture that brings the simplicity of the public cloud to application delivery in any environment.
  • Zero Touch Application Services Recorded: Nov 24 2020 25 mins
    Nathan McMahon, Solutions Architect, Avi Networks
    The process of endless tickets to deploy an application is unsustainable. The largest banks, with hundreds of thousands of applications, have moved to a zero touch networking model. Deploy an app, and all the adjacent services, such as load balancing, application firewall, DNS and SSL cryptography are automatically instantiated. What does it take to make this happen? What impact will this have on your environment? In this session learn how the 3rd generation of application delivery enables self-service and automation to reduce time to market and operational costs.
  • Making Your Private Cloud Network Run Like a Public Cloud - Part 1 Recorded: Nov 19 2020 24 mins
    Umesh Mahajan - VMware, Andrew Hrycaj - IHS Markit, Shiv Agarwal - VMware
    From the public cloud, to the data center, and to the edge, enterprises are rethinking their networking and security strategies, priorities, technologies, and investment decisions to handle the unexpected. Traditional networks and security models have proved to be too rigid and have become blockers to address changes rapidly. The public cloud has quickly become the model to deliver this agility.

    In this talk, we will examine networking and security technologies that are designed to operate with the network-as-code model of the public cloud and bring that flexibility to the private cloud. Enterprises are building and managing full stack networks with broad and deep visibility today and deploying security policies rapidly without any hardware dependencies.

    In part one of this two-part session, we will discuss the networking and security aspects followed by part two which will cover application load balancing and application delivery services.

    Presenters:
    Umesh Mahajan - SVP/GM NSX Networking and Security (SDN) at VMware
    Andrew Hrycaj - Principal Network Engineer at IHS Markit
