  • Cloud Native Application Security: Have You Covered All Your Bases? Mar 24 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Nick Garratt, Rackspace Principal Architect & Aaron Richmond, AWS Solutions Architect
    About this Rackspace Webinar:

    As attack vectors multiply year over year, security is more important than ever. And neglecting it can be a costly proposition. In 2019 alone, the average cost of a security breach was nearly $3.9M. It’s no longer “Can you afford to invest in security?,” it’s “Can you afford not to?”

    At the same time, a proliferation of innovative new cloud technologies is expanding the perimeter that needs to be secured. While AWS provides a secure infrastructure platform and native security services, what you build on top of it must be secure as well.

    Join us as experts from Rackspace and AWS discuss:

    · The continued evolution of cloud security threats
    · What the Shared Responsibility Model is as well as key considerations to implementing it
    · How to take advantage of AWS native security services within your security strategy, including a high-level look at compliance
  • Hybrid Cloud Adoption: Trends, Tips and Tools for the Successful CIO Recorded: Nov 14 2019 50 mins
    Bill Martorelli, Featured Speaker and Forrester Principal Analyst; Van Phan - Pure Storage, Bill Romano - Mulesoft
    A well-defined cloud strategy is a powerful tool for success, but in order to fully capitalize on its benefits you must proactively address the challenges of deploying a hybrid environment. Issues include data and application integration across the hybrid environment, management of multiple clouds and securing applications regardless of which cloud they’re running on.

    With hybrid cloud adoption expanding, a growing number of technologies are available to make hybrid cloud deployments easier, faster and more cost effective. In our upcoming webinar, “Hybrid Cloud Adoption: Trends, Tips and Tools for the Successful CIO,” we bring together a panel of industry experts to discuss trends in hybrid cloud and how to leverage new technologies to get the most out of your investments.

    Join us to learn:

    • The top 3 technologies to consider incorporating into your hybrid cloud strategy
    • The value of investing in data and application integration
    • How security can be an advantage and disadvantage of hybrid cloud
  • Why Every CIO Should Define a Cloud Strategy Now Recorded: Nov 7 2019 33 mins
    Scott Strickland, EVP and CIO Wyndham Hotels and Resorts; Brandon Jung, VP Alliances at GitLab
    One of the biggest mistakes CIOs make when it comes to defining a cloud strategy is buying into the myths that it is too late, that a cloud strategy will be a huge undertaking, or that it will require a complete IT overhaul. Don’t let these myths deter you from taking the time to thoughtfully develop a cloud strategy. The truth is, regardless of where you are in your IT transformation journey, a clearly articulated cloud strategy strengthens your organization’s ability to adapt to a changing technology and business landscape.

    In our upcoming webinar, “Why Every CIO Should Define a Cloud Strategy Now,” you’ll hear how Rackspace customers approached defining their cloud strategies.

    Join us to learn:

    According to RightScale, 94% of respondents to their 2019 State of the Cloud Survey reported that they’re already using the cloud. With so many organizations seeking to embrace the cloud to drive their business goals, it’s more important than ever to ensure your cloud strategy is built on a solid foundation.

    A well-defined cloud strategy not only supports the organization’s long-term business strategy, it also fosters differentiation across the entire business, helping to drive innovation, growth and profitability.

    Join our panel of technology leaders for our upcoming webinar, “Defining a Future-Proof Cloud Strategy”, where they will discuss:

    • What a cloud strategy is and how it fits into overall business strategy

  • Launch Your Hybrid Cloud Journey with AWS Container Services Recorded: Oct 24 2019 61 mins
    Seamus Owens, AWS Solution Architect at Rackspace & Michael Lucas, AWS Solution Architect at Rackspace
    When businesses want to modernize their legacy applications, they look to the cloud. But they’re also looking to technologies like containers — which make it possible to run applications across computing environments.

    As a result, containers are becoming a integral part of today’s hybrid cloud deployments. But many businesses lack the expertise to take full advantage of these technologies.

    Join us for our upcoming webinar, “Launch Your Hybrid Cloud Journey with AWS Container Services,” where our AWS experts will discuss:

    •AWS Containers + Hybrid Cloud: Why is this a golden combination?
    •How to deploy and manage portable, agile and scalable applications leveraging AWS container services
    •Best practices for monitoring and optimizing a hybrid container environment
  • How to Set Yourself Up for Success on Hybrid Cloud Recorded: Oct 22 2019 49 mins
    Jaret Chiles, Marc Hadler, Justin Shepherd, Seamus Owens & Illyse Sheaffer
    As cloud adoption continues to boom, more businesses are looking to hybrid architectures to modernize their legacy IT. With a hybrid cloud, you can take advantage of the scalable, flexible nature of a public cloud while maintaining the control and security of a private cloud.

    But the hybrid cloud also comes with increased complexity — such as maintaining security requirements, implementing an integration strategy and managing cloud-native applications across various platforms.

    You can overcome these challenges, though, and experience a successful hybrid cloud implementation. Our experts will show you how in our webinar, “How to Set Yourself Up for Success on Hybrid Cloud.” Join us to discuss:

    •Integrating your data and applications
    •Achieving hybrid cloud security
    •Leveraging cloud-native technologies
    •Developing your cloud strategy
  • Taking Retail to New Heights with Rackspace and Google Cloud Platform Recorded: Sep 11 2019 42 mins
    Dan Sheppard Sr. Product Manager – Google Cloud Platform and Brian Caddell Lead Solutions Architect
    Today’s retail market is more competitive than ever.
    With the rise in online and mobile shopping, increased competition, and heightened customer service expectations, retailers need to be more flexible not only in their offerings to customers, but also in their uses of technology. As a result, IT teams are looking to leverage the latest in infrastructure and management practices, including infrastructure-as-code models.

    In this webinar, you’ll hear about a retail customer who has been working through this modernization process over the past 18 months. During this conversation, we’ll discuss how this retailer was able to meet the operational demands of keeping POS systems available around-the-clock while pivoting to a new hybrid cloud infrastructure based on Google Cloud Platform and VMware. You’ll also learn how the customer settled on Google Cloud Platform as the right fit for their workloads.

    Join us for an insightful conversation as we explore this customer’s experience. You'll learn:
    -- Why retailers need to modernize their infrastructure to meet the demands of their marketing teams and sales
    -- Why not all applications are created equal and why the solution may require multiple types of infrastructure and a hybrid cloud
    -- Why transformations like this take time and resources, and how having a partner can help offset the burden on internal teams and reduce risk
