The Many Faces of PaaS

Mike Kavis, VP & Principal Architect, Cloud Technology Partners
By now, enterprises understand the value of Software as a Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), but there still is much confusion about Platform as a Service (PaaS). This confusion is one reason why enterprises have been slow to adopt PaaS. Why is there so much confusion? This presentation will help clear up the confusion of all the different types of PaaS offerings in the marketplace.

  • Leveraging Risk, Physical and Cyber Security and Continuity Planning Apr 21 2015 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Eric Kretz, Director, Continuity of Operations (COOP) Division, National Continuity Programs (NCP)
    Generally, risks associated with continuity planning, from physical to cyber-security, are part of an ever-evolving threat to our systems and technologies. Continuity planning is simply the good business practice of ensuring the execution of essential functions through all circumstances, and it is a fundamental responsibility of public institutions and private entities responsible to their stakeholders. What are some of the risks associated with continuity planning? Why is managing risk important for continuity? What are some of the methods used to mitigate risks in continuity planning?

    The COOP presentation will provide an understanding of Continuity and Continuity of Operations, explain the importance of a viable Continuity capability, and emphasize the need for a viable Continuity capability in all organizations, to demonstrate some of the linkages between continuity programs and:

    • Risk Management
    • Physical Security
    • Emergency Management
    • Cyber Security/ Information Technology

    Join us on April 21 as NCP’s senior continuity practitioner shares resilient continuity programs and outreach efforts. Hear from Eric Kretz, NCP, as he talks about Information Integration: Leveraging Risk, Physical and Cyber Security and Continuity Planning.

  • Using a Public Cloud for DR? Is it for Real? Apr 21 2015 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Moderator: Arun Taneja, Founder and Consulting Analyst, Taneja Group
    Enterprises of all sizes have started using the public cloud for some workloads. Backup and recovery and archiving are two prime examples of such workloads. But can the public cloud be used as a disaster recovery site? What are the pros and cons of such an approach? What best practices should apply? Is it only for small businesses that do not have a secondary site of their own? Or is there relevance even for larger organizations?

  • How Mobile Data Protection Can Accelerate Top CIO Initiatives Apr 8 2015 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Dave Packer, Director of Product Marketing & Seyi Verma, Sr. Product Marketing Manager
    The proliferation of data on mobile devices has created huge headaches for CIOs as they attempt to protect data, stay in compliance and move workloads to the cloud. How IT approaches data protection for mobile devices can support or hinder these high level efforts. Endpoint backup, traditionally viewed as a functional requirement below the radar of CIOs, is evolving to offer not just data backup and restore, but also a modern way to address costly data governance challenges such as compliance and eDiscovery. This webcast will cover real-world case studies of Fortune 1000 companies leveraging endpoint backup solutions to gain significant business advantages including cost control, compliance and embracing the cloud.

    Fred Pinkett, Senior Director of Product Marketing
    The connected device has made our lives more mobile, efficient, flexible and easier to manage. Connected devices and apps help us with everything from fitness to managing our schedules and make music tailored to our current whim accessible and easy to play anywhere. Connected devices for our home such as thermostats, alarms and home automation, make managing our energy use simple and allow us to manage appliances and doors remotely. In the event of a problem they alert us so we can act wherever we are. Finally, the advantages of the connected device are making their way into our IT world.

    The limitations, complexity and fragility of traditional storage are now being supplanted by cloud connected storage. This new model for file (unstructured data) storage combines the scalability, durability, flexibility and mobility of a cloud service with performance and security of a local NAS system. Join us to learn how this new model can empower collaboration across distant locations while making IT's life easier by eliminating costly problems such as backup, DR, distribution and replication associated with the typical storage stack.

  • Dealing with Hidden Cloud Dependencies Recorded: Mar 19 2015 48 mins
    Edward L. Haletky, Principal Analyst, The Virtualization Practice, LLC
    As you move your workloads to the cloud, you need to be aware of hidden dependencies whether in your workloads you have moved, or within the cloud itself. There are many aspects of the cloud that are hidden from view, and these cause unknown dependencies. Moving to rapidly, these dependencies could rear up and cause disaster or at the very least some headaches. A well thought out plan is required when using the cloud. Each dependency should be tackled, each should be discussed before entering the cloud, but often that is not always the case. We will look at these dependencies and provide actionable advice on best practices on dealing with these hidden dependencies.
  • Developing Multi-Cloud Solution Architectures Recorded: Mar 19 2015 31 mins
    Kendra Matthews, Marketing Director; Matt O’Donel, Solution Consultant
    77 percent of IT professionals are planning to deploy to multiple clouds within the next 12 months, based on a recent Dimensional Research survey. Why the movement to multi-cloud? Organizations are learning not all clouds are created equal and understanding how to identify the right provider and service to strike a balance between cost and capability is key. Maximizing the value of a multi-cloud strategy and building multi-cloud application architectures requires a robust catalog, ability to compare providers against key application characteristics, and way to easily collaborate and design a multi-layered architecture. In this webinar we walk through the identification and design of a multi-layer, multi-cloud architecture highlighting how the planning and design tools from Gravitant can augment current processes and speed the planning and design of a multi-cloud solution.
