  • The Nomad Autoscaler Jan 21 2021 9:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    James Rassell, Sr. Software Engineer, HashiCorp
    How do you ensure increases in user requests do not overload your applications while your platform runs as cost-effectively as possible? Autoscaling enables users to dynamically scale up or down their infrastructure based on the true load of their applications. It has become a critical capability for any workload orchestrator.

    This talk will discuss the architecture and features of the Nomad autoscaler, including a hands-on demo using the autoscaler in real-world scenarios.
  • Securing the Cloud Operating Model Jan 21 2021 8:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Vinay Venkataraghavan, Cloud CTO, Prisma Cloud, Palo Alto Networks
    Adopting the Cloud Operating Model allows enterprises to seamlessly automate the provisioning and connecting of applications, but they must also integrate security throughout the application lifecycle (i.e. build to deploy to the runtime).

    In this session Palo Alto Networks will describe specific best-practices, techniques, and tools that DevOps and Security practitioners need to adopt to ensure that applications are deployed in a highly secure manner.
  • Redefine your cloud strategy with Cisco’s Intent Based Networking and HashiCorp Jan 21 2021 7:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Ahmed Dessouki, Senior Manager of Product Management, Data Center Networking & Ecosystem, Cisco
    Any cloud, any app, any service; is it a dream come true? Yes, it’s here and now with Cisco’s Intent Based Networking and HashiCorp Technologies.

  • Observability in the Cloud Operating Model Jan 21 2021 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Amit Sharma, Director of Product Marketing, Splunk
    Cloud brings agility and nearly infinite scalability; however, it also brings operational complexity due to the ephemeral and dynamic nature of cloud infrastructure and distributed microservices. To unlock the fastest path to value in the cloud, enterprises must have a strategy to unify and automate observability across the cloud stack.

    Join this session to learn:
    - What are the requirements for observability in cloud and cloud-native environments
    - How to build effective observability strategies and implement best practices
    - How to operationalize the Cloud Operating Model with HashiCorp and Splunk
  • When geography and the cloud collide: Deploy and debug multi-region applications Jan 21 2021 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Rick Sherman, Technical Evangelist & Daniel Maher, Technical Evangelist, Datadog
    Business evolves over time and space. Your stack needs to evolve with it. In the globalised 21st century, this means your resources were on one continent, but now your customers are on another. You successfully deployed your store closer to your customers and all the monitors look green—but you’re losing them at checkout time. Now what?
    In this talk, Dan and Rick will use HashiCorp Terraform to configure and deploy a multi-region application, and demonstrate some of the ways that Datadog can provide insight into the deployment and application life-cycle. We’ll introduce Terraform Cloud and show how to manage AWS Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) and Security Groups. We’ll also show how to investigate, diagnose, and remediate a real-world problem in multi-region deployments using Datadog.

  • Lessons Learned: Migration to the Cloud in A Highly Regulated Public Sector Recorded: Jul 21 2020 61 mins
    Tim Olson & Vinnie Ramirez, HashiCorp Irshad Buchh, World Wide Public Sector Solutions Architect, AWS
    "In highly regulated government organizations, moving applications and data to the cloud can be extremely difficult given the legacy technologies some of these agencies maintain, and also because some have to comply with heavy security regulations.

    To meet each of these challenges, HashiCorp and Amazon Web Services (AWS) have products and workflows that can keep these public sector organizations from falling way behind the private sector in IT capabilities.

    During this session you will learn how HashiCorp and AWS helped a highly regulated public sector organization migrate 200+ applications to the cloud in 6 months after a stalled 2-year initiative."
  • Mind the Gap, Bridging Cloud and On-Prem Infrastructures Recorded: Jul 21 2020 53 mins
    Nic Vermande, Technical Marketing Engineer - ACI and Open Source, Cisco
    DevOps tools became very popular with the adoption of public cloud, but Operational teams now realize that their benefits can be extended to enterprise data centers. In reality, cloud native tools can help bridge public clouds and private data centers by enabling a common framework to manage applications and their underlying infrastructure components.

    In this session you’ll learn about the latest Cisco ACI integrations with Hashicorp Terraform and Consul to deliver a powerful solution for end-to-end on-prem and cloud infrastructure deployments.
