Supercharge Your Application Performance and Cloud Savings With Aventra IRON

Application performance is always dependent on latencies associated with the processing of data. Many attempts have been made to improve performance with code optimization and in-memory databases to take advantage of better IOPS achieved through the use of flash memory (or SSDs) and RAM. The challenge is often cost and complexity of implementation.

Aventra™ IRON from ClearDB is a simple, risk free, cost effective technology that innovatively unifies memory and storage to deliver up to 30X IOPS improvement and persistent data for any application, any database. Leverage the immediate benefits of Aventra IRON to exceed performance goals and reduce operational costs in the cloud with zero change to application or OS code.

  • Beginner's Guide to Public Sector Cloud Infrastructure Recorded: Jul 27 2017 63 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager & Jonathan Morse, State Local Higher Education Account Executive
    Migrating to the cloud poses challenges for any organization, but there are particular concerns for the public sector. Government regulations like FedRAMP and the upcoming DFARS must be met, but security in the cloud is different than in the data center. Cloud providers use a Shared Responsibility Model, where they secure the physical infrastructure and the rest is up to the customer. In the public sector, budgets have to be justified... and used, at the risk of decreasing in the next year. Given the potential for Cloud Sprawl, without a Cloud Management Platform, expenses can get out of control.

    This webinar serves as a guide for public sector organizations looking to embrace the cloud. We will discuss the specific requirements of public sector organizations and explain the choices that will need to be made during such a migration. Topics covered include:

    - What terms do I need to know?
    - What questions do I need to ask?
    - What are some common pitfalls?
    - What tools are available to help?

  • Best Practices for Consolidated Billing & Tagging to Reduce Multi-Account Costs Recorded: Jul 10 2017 36 mins
    Dave DeYager, CloudCheckr Support & Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager
    Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides organizations with the option of consolidated billing, to unify data from separate accounts under one centralized payer account. Consolidated billing enables simplified operations for large organizations, while increasing the possibility of volume discounts.

    However, with consolidation comes the responsibility of allocation; organizations with multiple accounts—departments, projects, customers, etc.—are faced with the challenge of enforcing accountability. For internal teams, budget allocation and forecasting can be a struggle; for Managed Service Providers, chargebacks and invoicing can be a nightmare.

    The CloudCheckr platform offers tagging to help user manage their instances, images, and EC2 resources. In this webcast, learn how to leverage consolidated billing and tagging to improve efficiencies and reduce cloud costs. Attendees will learn:

    - How consolidated billing helps to improve governance and save on volume purchasing for multiple cloud accounts
    - Why tagging is critical to managing budgets, allocating costs, and enabling chargebacks
    - What to consider when creating a tagging strategy
    - How CloudCheckr helps automate billing processes across accounts
  • Earning Margin: How AWS Consulting Partners Scale and Increase Profitability Recorded: Jul 6 2017 36 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
    - How to automate AWS invoicing and billing processes at scale
  • Leveraging Automation for Self-Healing Clouds Recorded: Jun 28 2017 24 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.

    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
