Master the Complexity of Hybrid Cloud Computing

Enterprise cloud use is growing rapidly. However, to achieve the significant benefits advertised for cloud computing, enterprises need to get serious about cloud management to avoid making cloud false starts.

Because of the complexity of modern IT environments, enterprise cloud computing must be able to deliver extremely advanced systems– from private to public and across all infrastructures. Further, deploying mission-critical workloads in the cloud requires a mature approach to management, governance and compliance – so enterprise cloud management needs to integrate with existing IT processes.

Attend this webinar to learn how to overcome the key challenges faced in deploying industrial grade cloud systems. From private to hybrid cloud management and across cloud governance and optimization, you’ll learn what market-leading enterprises are doing to ensure a robust, industrial-strength cloud computing strategy for the long term.

  • Why do Microservices Need an API Gateway? Apr 18 2018 8:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Lauri Nevala, Co-Founder & Software Architect, Kontena, Inc
    Using the microservice architectural paradigm allows you to develop a single application as a set of loosely coupled, collaborating services. Each service implements a set of narrowly related functions and communicates with lightweight mechanisms, such as a HTTP resource API.

    Microservices are relatively small and easier for a developer to understand. They provide better architecture for large applications and better isolation for scalability and damage control. However, they contain more moving parts and are harder to test.

    An API gateway provides a single, unified API entry point across one or more internal APIs. It adds an additional layer of protection to your microservices by providing protection from attack vectors.

    It also enables support for mixing communication protocols and decreases microservice complexity by providing authorization using API tokens, access control enforcement, and rate limiting.

    In this session the followings topics will be covered:
    - What are microservices
    - What are the pros and cons of using microservices
    - What are API gateways
    - What problems API gateways are solving
    - How containers fit into microservice architecture paradigm
    - How to orchestrate and configure microservices and API gateways easily
  • From Zero to Hero: What it Takes to Run Containers in Production Apr 17 2018 8:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Lauri Nevala, Software Architect at Kontena, Inc
    Running a single container on your laptop is super easy, running hundreds of containers in a production environment is definitely not.

    Before moving to the production environment, users must find answers to dozens of questions:
    - Where to store Docker images
    - How to deal with sensitive data like passwords, API keys and certificates
    - How to handle application states
    - How load balancing should be done, etc.

    One option is to use a DIY bare-bones Docker or Kubernetes setup or else use some higher-level container platform that provides solutions out-of-the-box.

    In this session Lauri Nevala will talk about what is required and what aspects you need to take into an account when running containerized applications in production environments. He will also show you how to easily set up a production-grade container cluster and deploy containerized applications to the production environment with Kontena.

    Presenter Lauri Nevala is a co-founder and software engineer at Kontena, Inc. He is a happy Ruby developer and DevOps guy and wants to maximize (other) developers' happiness by building Kontena - an easy to use container & microservices platform.
  • [Panel] When iOS Code is Leaked: How Companies Can Manage App Security Feb 22 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jeanne Morain, James Jardine
    Last week it was uncovered that an intern at Apple leaked some of the iPhone's source code was leaked on GitHub.

    The code was for iBoot, a component of the iPhone's OS. While it was an older version of iOS 9 and Apple has declared the leak shouldn't be of concern to the average user, the community has been scratching their heads wondering how sensitive code from a conglomerate like Apple could accidentally be made public.

    We hear about data leaks and security breaches almost on a weekly basis now, but when it comes to something so widely used by global consumers, it poses an even bigger concern that human error could potentially have disastrous results.

    Join this expert panel to discuss and explore the following:

    - What are the potential ramifications of such a breach?
    - Dark web
    - Company costs and impact on brand and PR
    - What are action items companies can do to prevent such a breach from happening?

  • Tech M&A: What the Red Hat Acquisition of CoreOS Means for Containers Recorded: Feb 9 2018 62 mins
    Jeanne Morain, iSpeak Cloud, Jay Lyman, 451 Research and Chris Haddad, Karux LLC
    The containers and microservices industry has exploded in recent years. With companies like Docker blazing the trail, we've seen a huge expansion in the application container market with other open source platforms like Red Hat, Mesosphere, Kubernetes, CoreOS... and the list goes on. However, when it comes to major mergers and acquisitions, the containers market hasn't been high on the list of deals.

    It was recently publicized that Red Hat is acquiring their fellow open source vendor CoreOS for $250 million. This deal will allow them to expand their share of the Kubernetes market and enhance their Kubernetes software management.

    What does this type and size deal mean for such an emerging market? What are the possibilities, potential, and even ramifications for application container, cloud application, and cloud infrastructure providers?

    Tune into this expert panel with Jeanne Morain, Digital Transformation & Cloud Expert, iSpeak Cloud, Jay Lyman, Principal Analyst, 451 Research and Chris Haddad, Chief Architect, Karux LLC as they discuss these and other pertinent questions in the tech M&A marketplace.
  • FC vs. iSCSI Recorded: Jan 31 2018 63 mins
    Fred Knight, NetApp, John Kim, SNIA ESF Chair, Mellanox, Alex McDonald, SNIA ESF Vice Chair, NetApp
    In the enterprise, block storage typically handles the most critical applications such as database, ERP, product development, and tier-1 virtualization. The dominant connectivity option for this has long been Fibre Channel SAN (FC-SAN), but recently many customers and block storage vendors have turned to iSCSI instead. FC-SAN is known for its reliability, lossless nature, 2x FC speed bumps, and carefully tested interoperability between vendors. iSCSI is known for running on ubiquitous Ethernet networks, 10x Ethernet speed bumps, and supporting commodity networking hardware from many vendors.

    Because, FCoE also delivers increasing performance as Ethernet speeds increase – and, Fibre Channel also delivers increasing performance as FC speeds increase. Historically, FC delivered speed bumps at a more rapid interval (2x bumps), while Ethernet delivered their speed bumps at a slower pace (10x bumps), but that has changed recently with Ethernet adding 2.5G, 5G, 25G, 40G, and 50G to the traditional 1G, 10G, 100G timeline.

    As the storage world moves to more flash and other non-volatile memory, more cloud, and more virtualization (or more containers), it’s time to revisit one of the great IT debates: Should you deploy Fibre Channel or iSCSI? Attend this SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum webcast to learn:
    •Will Fibre Channel or iSCSI deliver faster performance? Does it depend on the workload?
    •How is the wire speed race going between FC and iSCSI? Does anyone actually run iSCSI on 100GbE? When will 128Gb Fibre Channel arrive?
    •Can any server or storage array actually support more than 32Gb/s or 40Gb/s speeds?
    •Do Linux, Windows, or hypervisors have a preference?
    •Is one really easier [to install/manage] than the other, or are they just different?
    •How does the new NVMe over Fabrics protocol affect this debate?

    Join SNIA experts as they compare FC vs. iSCSI and argue in an energetic yet friendly way about their differences and merits of each.

  • Unprotected Files on a Public Cloud Server: Live Panel on the NSA Data Leak Recorded: Dec 8 2017 59 mins
    Chris Vickery, George Crump, David Linthicum, Charles Goldberg, Mark Carlson
    Public, private and hybrid cloud are nothing new, but protecting sensitive data stored on these servers is still of the utmost concern. The NSA is no exception.

    It recently became publicized that the contents of a highly sensitive hard drive belonging to the NSA (National Security Agency) were compromised. The virtual disk containing the sensitive data came from an Army Intelligence project and was left on a public AWS (Amazon Web Services) storage server, not password-protected.

    This is one of at least 5 other leaks of NSA-related data in recent years. Not to mention the significant number of breaches and hacks we’ve experienced lately, including Yahoo!, Equifax, WannaCry, Petya, and more.

    The culprit in this case? Unprotected storage buckets. They have played a part in multiple other recent exposures, and concern is on the rise. When it comes to storing data on public cloud servers like AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Rackspace and more, what are the key responsibilities of Storage Architects and Engineers, CIOs and CTOs to avoid these types data leaks?

    Tune in with Chris Vickery, Director of Cyber Risk Research at UpGuard and the one who discovered the leak, along with George Crump, Chief Steward, Storage Switzerland, David Linthicum, Cloud Computing Visionary, Author & Speaker, Charles Goldberg, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, Thales e-Security, and Mark Carlson, Co-Chair, SNIA Technical Council & Cloud Storage Initiative, for a live panel discussion on this ever-important topics.

  • Transactional Models & Their Storage Requirements Recorded: Oct 31 2017 63 mins
    Alex McDonald, SNIA-ESF Vice Chair, NetApp, J Metz, SNIA Board of Directors, Cisco
    We’re all accustomed to transferring money from one bank account to another; a credit to the payer becomes a debit to the payee. But that model uses a specific set of sophisticated techniques to accomplish what appears to be a simple transaction. We’re also aware of how today we can order goods online, or reserve an airline seat over the Internet. Or even simpler, we can update a photograph on Facebook. Can these applications use the same models, or are new techniques required?

    One of the more important concepts in storage is the notion of transactions, which are used in databases, financials, and other mission critical workloads. However, in the age of cloud and distributed systems, we need to update our thinking about what constitutes a transaction. We need to understand how new theories and techniques allow us to undertake transactional work in the face of unreliable and physically dispersed systems. It’s a topic full of interesting concepts (and lots of acronyms!). In this webcast, we’ll provide a brief tour of traditional transactional systems and their use of storage, we’ll explain new application techniques and transaction models, and we’ll discuss what storage systems need to look like to support these new advances.

    And yes, we’ll explain all the acronyms and nomenclature too.

    You will learn:

    •A brief history of transactional systems from banking to Facebook
    •How the Internet and distributed systems have changed and how we view transactions
    •An explanation of the terminology, from ACID to CAP and beyond
    •How applications, networks & particularly storage have changed to meet these demands
