Frankenstein Architecture - Marrying Legacy with the Cloud

Join Nutanix and Professor Herman Singh and guests for the second episode of our Nutanix Connect webinars (Season 2). In this instalment we will be exploring the topic ‘Frankenstein Architecture – Marrying legacy with the Cloud’.

Frankenstein was not the monster; he was the creator of the monster!
In this episode of the Nutanix Connect webinar, Professor Herman Singh will be discussing, how legacy platforms in use globally have emerged from 70 years of incremental build and over multiple generations of both technology and architecture at the network, infrastructure, data, and software levels.

This has created an extraordinarily complex environment to both operate and maintain, never mind extending. Cloud has emerged a decade ago with promises of a simpler more scalable and cost effective solution but has been revealed as both a blessing and a curse as firms migrate to this new architecture but must do so in an incremental manner.

Join us to:
• Gain an understanding of the evolution of legacy systems and their shortcomings
• Understanding the economic and technical challenges of the transition to cloud
• Review the emergence and challenges of hybrid solutions
• Gain an appreciation of some of the migration and operation best practice
• Listen to multiple perspectives on what is still a world fraught with dangers and risks


Speakers:

• Professor Herman Singh, Director and Professor for Business Transformation and Startup Acceleration
• Fatima Mkandla, Regional Channel Manager SADC
• Craigh Stuart, Systems Engineering Manager SADC at Nutanix
• Paul Ruinaard, Regional Sales Director Sub-Saharan Africa

  • The Future of Work Part 3 - Application Catalogues and User Access Jan 29 2021 4:00 pm UTC 24 mins
    Brian Suhr | Principal Technical Marketing Engineer, Nutanix
    End User Computing (EUC) has emerged as a crucial enabling technology for remote work, as it allows employees to work anywhere, anytime, and from any device. But many are still seeking straight answers about the risks and rewards of this approach, as well as practical advice on how to get started.

    In Part 3 we'll be showing you how it is all about the end users.

    How can they work quickly and efficiently without the need for intervention from IT? In this last section we tie together all the building blocks and show the benefits of how to operate an enterprise class environment.
  • The Future of Work Part 2: Working from Home - Keeping the Bad Guys Out Jan 28 2021 4:00 pm UTC 39 mins
    Brian Suhr | Principal Technical Marketing Engineer, Nutanix
    End User Computing (EUC) has emerged as a crucial enabling technology for remote work, as it allows employees to work anywhere, anytime, and from any device. But many are still seeking straight answers about the risks and rewards of this approach, as well as practical advice on how to get started.

    Part 2, covers what to do once you’ve created your EUC remote environment, and the need to secure and manage it effectively. There are several key questions to consider when implementing remote work globally and at scale:

    • How do we keep our data safe?
    • How do we centralize management operations?
    • Should the end user be able to access data on the local device?
    • What operations models do you need to consider when designing an EUC solution?

    Join us to hear from Principal Technical Engineer, Brian Suhr on best practices and keeping your environment safe. Tune in tomorrow for Part 3:

    Brian Suhr | Principal Technical Marketing Engineer, Nutanix
    End User Computing (EUC) has emerged as a crucial enabling technology for remote work, as it allows employees to work anywhere, anytime, and from any device. But many are still seeking straight answers about the risks and rewards of this approach, as well as practical advice on how to get started.

    There are many questions that need to be answered before getting started, such as, What will the environment look like? How many desktops? What applications and what types of users? Will the environment be persistent or non-persistent?

    Answering these questions provides a solid foundation that will save you time later.

  • Simple, Affordable, No-Install Disaster Recovery Recorded: Dec 4 2020 51 mins
    Ed Collins - Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Nutanix | Dwayne Lessner - Principal Technical Marketing Engineer, Nutanix
    Businesses are increasingly dependent upon IT for competitive advantage while threats against IT are ever-increasing. Business critical applications have become the lifeblood of the enterprise even though the gap is widening between this reliance on IT services and a company’s ability to protect it.

    The cost of building and maintaining a secondary datacenter for disaster protection is sometimes cost prohibitive. Coddling together a patchwork of legacy technologies is often the best some companies can afford. With Nutanix, however, companies are able to seamlessly take advantage of their existing Enterprise Cloud software by subscribing to the Xi Leap disaster recovery cloud service, enjoying features that much larger enterprises with massive budgets do, but at a fraction of the cost.

    In this webinar, Ed Collins - Sr. Product Marketing Manager & Dwayne Lessner, Principal Technical Marketing Engineer of Nutanix will show you how Nutanix Xi Leap turns CapEx into OpEx, simply, affordably, and with guaranteed SLAs.

    Steve Kaplan, Vice President, Customer Success | Nutanix
    Disruptive technology such as hyper-converged infrastructure tends to significantly complicate the buying decision. It forces new operational procedures and can impact IT governance, security, and compliance. But even a strong financial justification might not be enough to alter the ingrained processes, interests, and cultural norms surrounding the legacy environment. In many cases, it takes an ROI story.

    This webinar will assist anyone interested in how to use financial analysis as a framework to optimise strategic decision-making.

    Prof. Herman Singh, CEO - Future Advisory | Anthony Olivier, MD - Performanta | Paul Ruinaard, & Craigh Stuart - Nutanix
    In this Nutanix Connect session we are partnering with Professor Herman Singh to help unpack the current crisis that is redefining almost all aspects of our lives and calling into question many of the choices we have already made.

    The bottom-line. Firms with large headquarters could be left with white elephants and even the way that visitors are managed could make face to face encounters impractical. In this Nutanix Connect session, we will explore how to think about these questions and brace for impact.

    1. What does the workspace of the future look like? Are cubicles back?
    2. What is the future of headquarters? How do we handle visitors and elevators?
    3. What should be done with collaborative work?
    4. What should we be doing at our home office?

    Our panel will further share their experiences and provide advice on how you can approach restructuring your workspace in a safe, financially viable and functional way.
  • The Journey to true Hybrid Cloud Recorded: Nov 26 2020 21 mins
    Jarren Budds | Systems Engineer, Nutanix
    Today, many organisations are evaluating hybrid cloud architectures to supplement their private cloud deployments with public cloud adoption. However, these deployments can quickly run into silos requiring different management tools and skill sets across clouds.

    These siloed environments all require different management tools and skill sets, which creates a breeding ground for operational complexity. In order to truly benefit from a hybrid cloud, what is needed is a single platform that spans private and public clouds.

    Watch this webinar to learn how Nutanix delivers a True Hybrid Cloud that can help you:

    • Burst capacity into public cloud when demand spikes
    • Migrate applications from on-prem to hybrid cloud without retooling
    • Control cloud costs and drive accountability
    • Automate security auditing and maintain compliance baseline
  • Converged vs. Hyperconverged Infrastructure - Meeting the Demands of the New Era Recorded: Nov 24 2020 43 mins

    Join us for this webinar where Steve Carter, Senior Product Marketing – Nutanix, will take you through how you can simplify your IT infrastructure.

    In this webinar you will learn:
    • What are the primary benefits of HCI compared to Converged Infrastructure?
    • How WebScale IT infrastructure innovations make HCI possible
    • How HCI enables IT to be agile and cost conscious in the face of business uncertainty
