    Ok, so your data center may not catch on fire (at least we hope not). However, the consequences can be just as dire if critical data is lost, a virtual machine crashes or a portion of your data center becomes unavailable. In an emergency, how confident are you about restoring your company’s data in a timely fashion, especially when every minute of downtime may mean lost revenues from and credibility with your customers.

  • Back to School: Migrating to the Cloud Recorded: Aug 29 2017 59 mins
    Steve Hall, CloudCheckr VP of Marketing and Jimmy Stetzel, Relus Cloud Migration Practice Director
    The cloud is a nebulous concept, literally. Moving “to the cloud” is not as straightforward as moving a data center from San Francisco to San Jose. In that scenario, you have physical control of both locations and can assume or ensure that they use the same power outlets, Ethernet connections, roadways, loading docks... even that the door sizes are standard. Moving to the cloud is dramatically different. The good news is that hundreds of thousands of organizations have made such a move, successfully, and you can learn from their trials and tribulations.

    In this webinar, attendees will learn:
    - The decisions they have to make
    - The terminology they will need to understand
    - Advantages and disadvantages of different migration approaches
  • Back to School: Mandatory Cloud Terminology You Need to Know Recorded: Aug 25 2017 29 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager
    EC2, S3, VM, RDS... the cloud has a language all its own. With all of these terms and acronyms, which vary by cloud vendor, it's hard to know what people are talking about sometimes.

    During this webinar, Cloud Professor Todd Bernhard will discuss the terminology that apply to all cloud vendors as well as some that are unique to AWS and Microsoft Azure, specifically:

    - Definitions
    - Concepts
    - Acronyms
  • Back to School: Cloud Economy and Lessons from AirBnB, Uber and the Gig Economy Recorded: Aug 22 2017 28 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager
    The Cloud Economy represents a drastic change in how enterprises perform computing but it's not totally unprecedented. Running simultaneously in parallel with the advent of the Cloud First mentality, is the Gig Economy.

    In the Gig Economy people don't have to buy, lease or rent cars. They can use an Uber or Lyft. They don't habitually reserve a hotel room on a trip. They can use AirBnB. What lessons can cloud leaders learn from the Gig Economy that apply to the Cloud Economy and what pitfalls can we avoid?

    Cloud Professor Todd Bernhard will address these lessons in our next webinar, Back to School: Cloud Economy and Lessons from AirBnB, Uber and the Gig Economy. During this live webcast we’ll discuss:

    - Financial savings promised by the new economic model
    - New challenges presented
    - How to mitigate against such challenges

    Getting started on Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud is relatively straightforward, and empowers teams as never before to accelerate their business and innovate faster.

    - Security and Compliance
    - Cost and Expenses
