  • Making of the Modern Hybrid Cloud Recorded: Jul 23 2021 89 mins
    Eric Miller, Vice President Private Cloud, Rackspace Technology
    Rackspace Technology / VMWare - Cooking Experience with Wolfgang Puck. Is your cloud strategy simmering or ice cold? In order to serve up the right cloud strategy for your organization, you need the right ingredients. For most organizations, one flavor just won't do. Delivering the solutions that organizations need to thrive calls for a recipe that blends private cloud with a mix of public cloud, and SaaS applications. As a result, hybrid cloud environments are growing in popularity. But, as IT leaders jump in, they're experiencing challenges in deploying, operating and optimizing these complex environments.

    To show you what it's like to mix the right ingredients to achieve the right flavors, we've invited culinary icon, Wolfgang Puck, to walk you through preparing one of his signature dishes! During this exclusive culinary experience, our cloud leaders will also guide you through creating the right cloud combination to support your organization's strategic goals.
  • Identify the right application modernization approach for your business Recorded: Jul 13 2021 63 mins
    Rackspace Technology
    Join our experts for a virtual discussion on how to accelerate your journey to modern applications leveraging cloud native technologies.

    Early approaches to cloud adoption focused on migrating applications and infrastructure with minimal changes to the code or architecture. While these migrated workloads sometimes benefitted from the elasticity and scale of the cloud, unlocking the full value of the cloud requires modernizing the application code and architecture.

    Join our webinar to learn how we can help you overcome the complexities of modern architectures in the public cloud, and how to integrate the new processes and development workflows that come with them:

    • Serverless refactoring: Build self-healing, auto-scaling, applications, unchained from the limitations of servers. Serverless architectures offer the highest efficiency and cost benefits of the cloud by pushing nearly all infrastructure and software management to the platform.
    • Container adoption: When serverless isn’t an option, containers are the preference for deploying modern, complex, distributed applications. Containers often require minimal changes to the application, making them the perfect evolutionary step when significant refactoring isn’t appropriate
    • Cloud native replatforming: Incrementally modernize your application by adopting managed platform services as drop-in replacements for databases, messaging, API management, logging, monitoring, alerting and more.

    We’ll also examine real-world examples of how Rackspace Technology accelerated modern application adoption for .NET to .NET Core modernization, cloud native SaaS platforms and monolith-to-microservices decomposition.

    Register today! All live attendees will have the opportunity to receive an $100 AWS credit code and Rackspace Technology swag!

  • Cloud Native Security: Evolving approaches to combat a changing landscape Recorded: Apr 29 2021 54 mins
    Nick Garratt, Principal Architect, Rackspace; Scott Ward, Principal Solutions Architect, AWS
    Traditional approaches to data center security don’t translate well to the cloud. Those who are slow to realize this fact have all too often fallen prey to motivated malicious actors who, by comparison, have been quick to identify the opportunities that the changing technological landscape presents. Misconfigurations, which in a perimeter-secured environment may have represented nothing more than elevated risk, in the cloud can result in the accidental exposure of entire datasets.

    Hyperscale cloud providers like AWS are acutely aware of the security risks their customers face and have provided the tools and approaches at a pace commensurate with the urgency of these challenges. In addition, they have assumed many of these responsibilities themselves with “as-a-service” offers that bolster “security of the cloud.” Nevertheless, “security in the cloud” may seem a daunting prospect for those unfamiliar with this paradigm, and may result in reluctance to transition or transform, which can also be damaging.

    Join us as experts from Rackspace Technology and AWS discuss:

    The continued evolution of cloud security threats
    What the Shared Responsibility Model is and key considerations for implementation
    How to take advantage of AWS native security services within your security strategy, including a high-level look at compliance

    Bill Martorelli
    About this webinar

    Guest speaker, Forrester’s Bill Martorelli busts cloud myths and more as he explores the future of cloud computing in this keynote presentation, covering:

    • Deciding on which cloud technology you use is more of an ‘and’ conversation than an ‘or’ one.
    • Whether they realize it or not (many don’t), most companies are already in a hybrid or multicloud environment.
    • Private cloud supports many cutting-edge cloud technologies, including serverless and containers.
    • Companies moving to the cloud must focus on the whole cloud. That means finding the right cloud for the right workload.

    Following the keynote, Martorelli will be joined by an expert panel for a discussion on the topics raised and private cloud’s role in the future of cloud computing.

    Moderator: Jeff DeVerter, Chief Technology Evangelist, Rackspace Technology

  • Automating Production Level ML Operations on AWS Recorded: Feb 25 2021 53 mins
    Mark McQuade, Practice Manager, Data Science and Engineering & Daniel Quach, Lead Big Data Architect at Rackspace Technology
    Companies are realizing the value of using ML models to drive better outcomes for their businesses. Harnessing the predictive power of their data with ML models to remain competitive is becoming more critical to business operations, yet 60% of ML models never make it to production. This is due to complications often exacerbated by outdated business processes and the fact that it's not a core competency for typical data science teams.

    In this webinar, we will explore these specific challenges and illustrate how familiar cloud services can be stitched together with MLOps Foundations, enabling rapid development, training, scoring and deployment of models across multiple environments with strong governance and security controls to provide a foundation for successful model lifecycle management.

    What we'll cover:
    - Introduction to MLOps Foundations powered by Model Factory
    - The gap between the Data Scientists and ML Operations
    - The distinction between MLOps and DevOps
    - Architecture patterns necessary for elements of effective MLOps
    - How a “model factory” architecture holistically addresses CI/CD for ML

    Demo that will explore:
    - Quick feedback and traceability for model development
    - ML framework agnostic tooling for packaging of models
    - Platform agnostic continuous/rolling deployment
