  • Optimizing IT In a Time of Transformation: New Data for Critical Decision Making Jun 25 2020 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Dennis Drogseth, VP, EMA and Ron Sege, CEO, Virtana
    The current pandemic has, among other things, only heightened IT’s requirements to seek new levels of efficiency in managing what has become, increasingly, a hybrid cloud world. In this webinar, Virtana and Enterprise Management Associates will combine to share brand new and recent research on what this might mean for IT organizations seeking to emerge with improved levels of business value, efficiency, and effectiveness.

    More specifically, the webinar will address:
    How to step up to requirements for dynamic currency and relevance in a hybrid cloud world—with technologies such as AIOps, automation and discovery and dependency insights.

    How to deal with toolset fragmentation and provide a more unified way of working and reporting across IT that doesn’t require everyone being in the same place.

    How to translate war-room-related efficiencies for handling major incidents into the new age of remote working and increased mobility.

    How to minimize costly overprovisioning in the hybrid cloud world of the present and the future.

    A staged set of recommendations for investing in AIOps and automation based on EMA’s most recent data.

  • A 2020 Approach to Automating Infrastructure Management Recorded: Apr 23 2020 47 mins
    Alex Peay, (SaltStack), John Gentry (Virtana) Nital Gandhi (BOIT Consulting), Craig Theriac (Scale Computing)
    Infrastructure management in 2020 is a different game to the one it was in previous decades. In 2020, automation is the key differentiator, making waves across data center software and hardware and bringing in the ability to automatically detect and monitor connectivity, document the presence of network devices, update records with any modifications - and much more.

    This intelligent approach to the data center is fast becoming mission-critical, but there are challenges that need to be overcome in order to ensure the approach taken is the right one.

    Join this panel of experts as they discuss these automation infrastructure challenges and how to overcome them, including:

    - How data scale and edge-to-core data center architectures impact automation management strategies
    - How to overcome the hurdle of integrating DCIM automation tools
    - How to ensure automation management is a benefit to data center teams, not a threat

    Speakers:
    Alex Peay, Senior Vice President of Product, SaltStack (Moderator)
    John Gentry, CTO, Virtana
    Nital Gandhi, Founder, BOIT Consulting
    Craig Theriac, Director of Product Management, Scale Computing

  • Die vier Phasen einer erfolgreichen Cloud-Migration Recorded: Apr 8 2020 46 mins
    Kai Preuss, MD D/A/CH von Virtana
    In vier Phasen zum erfolgreichen Cloud Projekt
    Der IT-Infrastruktur Leiter eines globalen Unternehmens möchte aus fehlgeschlagenen Cloud Migrations Projekten lernen. Verzögerungen oder zu hohe Kosten im Nachhinein kann er sich nicht leisten.
    Seine Herausforderung, es gibt eine Deadline, dass Rechenzentrum muss in 24 Montaten komplett migiert sein, weil Verträge auslaufen.
    Für sein Projekt bedeutet das konkret:
    •Kritische Applikationen müssen mindestens genauso performant sein wie bisher
    •Die Kostenabschätzung und der Business Case müssen verlässlich und nachvollziehbar sein
    •Er muss den richtigen Mix finden zwischen Co-Location und Cloud.
    Was ihm fehlt ist ein erprobter, effizienter, schneller und vor allem programmatischer Weg, um die für sein Projekt vitalen Informationen zu erhalten. Mit einfachen Worten ausgedrückt: „Houston I have got a problem …. ich habe weder die Expertise noch die Tools um folgende kritische Informationen in kürzester Zeit zu erfassen:
    Welche Applikationen und Services habe ich in meiner Infrastruktur, und welche Abhängigkeiten gibt es?
    •Mit welchen Workload-Parametern laufen diese Applikationen derzeit im eigenen Rechenzentrum?
    •Wie kann ich schnell eine Priorisierung der zahlreichen Applikationen und Services anhand erpropter Kriterien erhalten?
    •Wie kann ich Kostenvergleiche zwischen den verschiedenen Cloudanbietern durchführen?
    Kai Preuss, RSM D/A/CH von Virtana, erklärt, wie das Unternehmen die Leistungsmerkmale der On-Prem Infrastruktur als Basis festlegt und die Abhängigkeiten zwischen Applikation und der Infrastruktur beschreibt.

  • Cloud Transformation Readiness Recorded: Apr 1 2020 33 mins
    David Cumberworth, VP, MD EMEA and APAC, Virtana
    Making Cloud Transformation Work
    Peter, an infrastructure director at a global travel company, had been given a task by the business to migrate all the IT infrastructure into the cloud within 24 months. He, however, had a big problem. The public cloud hosts didn’t give the same level of visibility into the infrastructure that he and his team were used to on-premises. He therefore couldn’t guarantee the performance of the applications that were critical to the daily running of the business. He wanted to see how applications would perform, and how much they would cost to host, before committing to migrating.

    David Cumberworth, Virtana’s MD EMEA and APAC, explains how this global travel company benchmarked its application performance on-prem, discovered the application dependencies, and what infrastructure elements they were using. It also proved what applications were suitable to migrate without additional work, how they would perform, and what would be the cost, of hosting them in the cloud. This process proved over $2 Million could be saved in reservations, idle resource, and right-sizing the host infrastructure.
  • Optimize Amazon Web Services (AWS) Public-cloud Spend with Simplified Analysis Recorded: Mar 26 2020 49 mins
    Bob Farzami, VP Cloud Strategy, Virtana and John Bobowicz, Sr. Manager Cloud Strategy, Capgemini
    It’s never too early to start saving on operational expenditures. Freeing up capital allows allocating budgets to innovation and reinvestment. Having thorough knowledge of idle resources, bottlenecks, and over-allocation of individual resources contributes to a cost-conscious operational culture.

    In this webinar, Bob Farzami, VP Cloud Strategy, Virtana and John Bobowicz, Sr. Manager Cloud Strategy, Capgemini discuss the steps taken by a global vacation-experience company to save $2 million annually in cloud spending.

    The Virtana CloudWisdom platform spearheaded insight into the project by facilitating:
    •Analysis and detection of unusual changes in billing
    •Identifying idle and unused resources
    •Recommending RI purchases based on granular usage examination
    •Classifying over-allocated capacity to right size resources
    •Detecting bottlenecks ensuring safe capacity adjustments

    Building a culture of proactive cost-awareness is not easy when emphasizing project delivery speed, application performance, and platform stability. At Virtana, we recommend laying the proper foundation at the onset of any cloud tranformation, regardless of application architecture to develop a cost-conscious operational culture over time.
