  • Connecting Core to Edge: Investigating Two Multicloud Deployment Use Cases Recorded: May 21 2019 60 mins
    Dominic Romeo – Director Product Management | TierPoint and Will Pittman – Ecosystem Director | Megaport
    Analyst firm Gartner predicts that by 2022, more than 50% of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed outside of the data center or cloud, up from less than 10% in 2019.

    As a result, businesses are increasingly leveraging both hyperscale data centers and cloud deployments closer to the edge to support their IT strategies and digital transformation initiatives.

    Rapid growth in multicloud IT deployments is driving an increased need to consider options for connectivity. Dedicated, fast, and globally-reaching connectivity is key to bringing the cloud closer to the edge where businesses reside and need services.

    Join TierPoint and Megaport for an in-depth look at two multicloud use cases. Our experts will give their insights into how the demand for both hyperscale and edge computing can be combined with cloud connectivity to make cloud strategies a reality.

  • The Software-Defined Data Center: A Foundation for Digital Transformation Recorded: Jan 22 2019 47 mins
    David Hines, Vice President of Architecture and Engineering - TierPoint
    As reported in Forbes last year, 73% of companies are planning to move to a fully software-defined data center within two years.

    A software-defined data center is based on a virtualized environment of compute, storage, networking and security in conjunction with policy-based management and automation. The evolution from a traditional data center architecture to one that is software-defined can take months if not years but can yield immense benefits for the business.

  • From Hurricanes to Hackers: The Expanding Horizons for Disaster Recovery Recorded: Aug 22 2018 52 mins
    David Hines, TierPoint - Vice President of Architecture and Engineering
    Business disruptions are not just inconvenient but can significantly damage a company’s reputation and bottom line. Many businesses are turning to Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solutions as they have effectively solved for downtime and data loss due to weather, system failures and human error. Moreover, DRaaS solutions are effective against cyber threats. Indeed, it’s not just the weather we should be worried about when it comes to disasters.

    One of the fastest growing types of attacks in recent years is ransomware. When infected, files and data are locked down and held hostage until a ransom is paid to the anonymous attacker. Due to the nature of DRaaS solutions, your organization is protected against ransomware thanks to available, continuous copies (or snapshots) of your data as well as processes to help fail back to regular operations.

    In this session, David Hines, Vice President of Architecture and Engineering at TierPoint will review the latest in ransomware tactics, and how to best prevent malware from entering the network in the first place. Sometimes, however, this is unavoidable and having a plan to mitigate the damage is a necessity.

  • Enterprise IT Shifts Off-Premises: Cloud, Data, and Digital Transformation Recorded: Jun 14 2018 62 mins
    Melanie Posey, 451 Research
    Digital transformation initiatives such as business intelligence/analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and big data are top priorities for IT organizations in 2018. Toward that end, according to a recent 451 Research survey, a full 60% of more than 1,000 IT leaders surveyed report that they plan to run the majority of their IT off-premises by year-end 2019, including public cloud and SaaS.

    At the same time, a number of organizational, cultural, and technology challenges have kept almost two-thirds of IT executives from developing formal digital transformation strategies.

    What is the path forward? What does the off-premise landscape look like? What are the key elements of a successful strategy?

    Melanie Posey, research vice president and general manager, Voice of the Enterprise at 451 Research will delve into the data and strategies IT organizations are implementing to facilitate this strategic shift and arrive at the point where they can focus on helping differentiate their business, rather than merely keeping the lights on.
