  • Earning Margin: How AWS Consulting Partners Scale and Increase Profitability Jul 6 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    AWS Channel Strategist Mira Ayad and CloudCheckr EMEA Channel Manager Tony Roebuck
    Amazon Web Services (AWS) recently conducted an AWS Consulting Partner study to understand how successful partners become profitable. The study revealed an overwhelming response that the biggest pain point is the complexity of billing clients with accuracy and efficiency. However, with the right cloud management platform, AWS Consulting Partners gain the ability to focus on their core competencies and less on business operations like monthly billing, invoicing, and chargebacks.

    During this webcast, AWS Channel Strategist Mira Ayad and CloudCheckr EMEA Channel Manager Tony Roebuck will review the AWS Consulting Partner study and how to create a profitable AWS business using CloudCheckr’s cloud management platform, including:

    - Opportunities to win business with pre-engagement analysis

    - Strategies and best practices to earn higher profitability and margins

    - Why every organization should have a cloud financial administrator

    - How to automate AWS invoicing and billing processes at scale
  • Leveraging Automation for Self-Healing Clouds Jun 28 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager
    When it works, the cloud runs itself, but too often humans get involved and mess things up. Users can spin up and forget about instances, or create password policies that are insecure or make typos that can cause downtime. It is important to be alerted to such events but there’s only so much one administrator can do. This is where automation comes in. The ability for your infrastructure to “self-heal” makes it possible to run a large cloud infrastructure at scale.

    Join us Wednesday, June 28 at 2pm EST for Leveraging Automation for Self-Healing Clouds. During this interactive webcast, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager Todd Bernhard will present attendees with an overview of CloudCheckr’s Automation capabilities, including:

    - 450 automated Best Practice Checks to detect anomalies and security problems
    - “Fix Now” functionality for Best Practice Checks
    - Auto-Fix functionality to eliminate steps and delays
  • Lessons Learned from the S3 Breach Jun 26 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Todd Bernhard, Product Marketing Manager, CloudCheckr
    Industry-leading security analysts have identified publicly available S3 storage buckets on at least one high profile site. While this is a legitimate concern, it presents a timely opportunity for all cloud administrators to revisit their own security policies and take action. Security breaches can rapidly burn through budgets—and destroy businesses.

    While public cloud providers provide the foundational security services, the responsibility is on organizations and end users to ensure their cloud infrastructure is secure. CloudCheckr’s Best Practice Checks enable proactive security monitoring and automation to prevent hacks through available S3 buckets, vulnerable ports, and more. Join us to learn tools and tips to keep your cloud secure:

    - Best Practice Checks that can detect such concerns before they become an issue
    - Fix Now automation tools that can automatically correct such issues
    - Regulatory tools to ensure compliance with security standards

  • How CloudCheckr Makes 1.7 Million EC2 Decisions Easy Recorded: May 25 2017 20 mins
    Todd Bernhard, Product Marketing Manager, CloudCheckr
    Choosing to move to the Cloud is a great decision, but it’s the first of many more decisions. You have to choose from 70 instance types, with 14 purchase options, running your choice of 4 operating systems, across dozens of availability zones and regions with distinct choices for tenancy and block storage. When you add it up, there are over a million options. In fact, Gartner has calculated that the number of decisions just for deploying an EC2 instance is over 1.7 million.

    It’s easy to make the wrong decisions and spend too much or be underprepared to meet demand. There’s only one way to make such decisions reliably and efficiently and that is to automate and follow best practices. In this in-depth discussion and demonstration, Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager, will show how to use CloudCheckr's Best Practices tool to manage costs.
