Cost, Security and Risk in a Multi-Cloud Environment

The majority of organisations today are running their IT estate across multiple platforms including private clouds, on-premise data centres, software as a service, and public clouds. Whilst this flexibility can drive significant business benefit, there are a number of key areas of operations and governance that require a different approach. Many organisations have suffered from cost management challenges despite the claims of many cloud providers that their platform will create savings and so we will examine options for effective cost management that actually work – and the pitfalls to avoid!

Cloud itself has a well-established security pedigree but managing security and risk across multiple clouds adds a layer of complexity that can lead to issues and so we will explore some of the key risks in such an environment and suggest how these can also be mitigated.

  • The IT Architect of the Future Oct 17 2019 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, CIO Advisor and Mentor, IT Evangelist
    The role of the architect has changed dramatically in the past few years and is headed for even more change as the landscape of possible technology options is only going to
    increase. Faced with a list of options that is increasing almost daily across a highly
    competitive landscape, many architectural decisions have become an exercise in avoiding error rather than exploring possibility.

    Whilst an acceptance of failure is becoming the norm in smaller development faced activities, architects must make big decisions that can affect the entire operation of an organisation. This webinar explores some ideas for architectural best practice and mechanisms for reducing risk whilst empowering architects to unleash some of the exciting new options available to them.
  • Learning From Other Industries to Break the Rules of Transformation Oct 16 2019 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, CIO Advisor and Mentor, IT Evangelist
    Digital Transformation is an over-used phrase and one that is often used to describe what is
    essentially business transformation that is underpinned by technology. Does this mean that
    these transformations are deeply vertical and need deep industry experience to be
    successful? In this webinar we examine how organisations can learn from other industry
    sectors and also from breaking the standard rules within their own industry.
    In this webinar, listeners will be able to learn:
    - How do we look across industries and learn from success in others?
    - How do we escape from the ‘me too’ transformational activity and break away from trying to keep up and get in front?
  • Benefit Your Business by Modernizing Enterprise IT with Cloud Services Sep 10 2019 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Akeem Jagunna-Oriyomi, Solution Architect, Internet Solutions Nigeria
    “Cloud” is a collective term for a large number of developments and possibilities. It is not an invention, but more of a “practical innovation,” combining several earlier inventions into something new and compelling.

    While their motivations vary, businesses of all sizes, industries, and geographies are turning to cloud services.

    According to Goldman Sachs, spending on cloud computing infrastructure and platforms will grow at a 30% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2013 through 2020 compared with 5% growth for overall enterprise IT, giving rise to the Cloud access security brokers(CASB) market in the process.

    Cloud adoption is accelerating faster than previously anticipated, leading Forrester to recently revise its 2011 forecast of the public cloud market size upward by 20%.

    Whether you’re looking at Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), the predictions are the same. Join this webinar hosted by Solution Architect Akeem Jagunna-Oriyomi to find out more!
  • Fibre Channel and Security Aug 27 2019 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Landon Noll, Cisco; Nishant Lodha, Marvell, J Metz, Cisco
    Fibre Channel has long been known to be a very secure protocol for storage. Even so, there is no such thing as a “perfectly secure” technology, and for that reason it’s important to constantly update and protect against threats.

    The sheer variety of environments in which Fibre Channel fabrics are deployed makes it very difficult to simply rely only on physical security. In fact, it’s possible to access different storage systems by different users, even when spanned over several sites. Fibre Channel enables security services to specifically address these concerns, and prevent misconfigurations or access to data by non-authorized people and machines.

    This webcast is going to dive deep into the guts of security aspects of Fibre Channel, looking closely at the protocols used to implement security in a Fibre Channel fabric. In particular, we’re going to look at:

    •The definitions of the protocols to authenticate Fibre Channel devices
    •What are the different classes of threats, and what are the mechanisms to protect against them
    •What are session keys and how to set them up
    •How Fibre Channel negotiates these parameters to insure frame-by-frame integrity and confidentiality
    •How Fibre Channel establishes and distributes policies across a fabric

    Please join us to learn more about the technical considerations that Fibre Channel brings to the table to secure and protect your data and information.

  • Kubernetes in the Cloud (Part 2) Recorded: Jul 17 2019 60 mins
    Michelle Tidwell, Program Director, IBM; Tom Clark, Distinguished Engineer, IBM; Matt Levan, Storage Solutions Architect, IBM
    As enterprises move to a hybrid multi-cloud world, they are faced with many challenges. Decisions surrounding what technologies to use is one, but they are also seeing a transformation in traditional IT roles. The storage admins are asked to be more cloud savvy while new roles of cloud admins are emerging to handle the complexities of deploying simple and efficient clouds. Meanwhile, both these roles are asked to ensure a self-service environment is architected so that application developers can get resources needed to develop cutting edge apps not in weeks, days or hours, but in minutes.

    In part one of this three part series, we covered the high level aspects of Kubernetes. This presentation will discuss key capabilities IT vendors are creating based on open source technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes to build self-service infrastructure to support hybrid multi-cloud deployments.We’ll cover:

    •Persistent storage and how to specify it
    •Ensuring application portability between Private and Public Clouds
    •Building a self-service infrastructure (Helm, Operators)
    •Selecting Block, File, Object (Traditional Storage, SDS)
  • How to Be a Part of the Real-World Workload Revolution Recorded: Jul 9 2019 65 mins
    Eden KIm, CEO, Calypso Systems; Jim Fister, SNIA Solid State Storage Initiative
    Real-world digital workloads often behave very differently from what might be expected. The equipment used in a computing system may function differently than anticipated. Unknown quirks in complicated software and operations running alongside the workload may be doing more or less than the user initially supposed. To truly understand what is happening, the right approach is to test and monitor the systems’ behaviors as real code is executed. By using measured data designers, vendors and service personnel can pinpoint the actual limits and bottlenecks that a particular workload is experiencing. Join the SNIA Solid State Storage Special Interest Group to learn how to be a part of the real-world workload revolution

    Richelle Ahlvers, Broadcom
    Swordfish School: Introduction to SNIA Swordfish™ Features and Profiles
    Ready to ride the wave to what’s next in storage management? As a part of an ongoing series of educational materials to help speed your SNIA Swordfish™ implementation in this Swordfish School webcast, Storage standards expert Richelle Ahlvers (Broadcom Inc.) will provide an introduction to the Features and Profiles concepts, describe how they work together, and talk about how to use both Features and Profiles when implementing Swordfish.
    Features are used by implementations to advertise to clients what functionality they are able to support. Profiles are detailed descriptions that describe down to the individual property level what functionality is required for implementations to advertise Features. The Profiles are used for in-depth analysis during development, making it easy for clients to determine which Features to require for different configurations. They are also used to determine certification / conformance requirements.

    About SNIA Swordfish™
    Designed with IT administrators and DevOps engineers in mind to provide simplified and scalable storage management for data center environments, SNIA Swordfish™ is a standard that defines the management of data storage and services as an extension to the Distributed Management Task Force’s (DMTF) Redfish application programming interface specification.

  • Overcoming Key Barrier to SD-WAN Adoption in the Enterprise Journey to the Cloud Recorded: Jun 24 2019 53 mins
    Rajesh Ghai Research Director, Carrier Network Infrastructure IDC, Rajesh Ghai Director, Carrier Network Infrastructure
    Enterprises have embraced cloud computing to unlock the opportunity offered by digital transformation. The cloud’s flexibility and agility enable enterprises to grow their business without borders and ensure productivity and efficiency.

    While enterprise applications continue to migrate to the cloud, the necessary change in the wide area network (WAN) is often overlooked. The hub-and-spoke WAN architecture that served the needs of the enterprise when applications were delivered from the datacenter, must evolve to serve the needs of the era of cloud applications. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) is the WAN's response to this paradigm shift in application traffic to the cloud.

    While SD-WAN has emerged as a key enabler of secure and seamless direct cloud application access with the benefits of transport independence, better security and path selection, it has brought into focus the importance of the transport underlay and the technology investment — both past and future — that an enterprise needs to consider before adopting SD-WAN.

    This webinar spotlights two critical success factors for driving mainstream enterprise adoption of SD-WAN:

    *Predictable and robust Internet connectivity
    *Investment protection (of installed legacy network equipment or in new technology) as the WAN evolves to support applications delivered from the cloud.

    Join us at this webinar as we make sense of SD-WAN adoption for your company.
  • Micro Focus ALM/QC Integration w/ AutoTesting for Reporting & Analysis Americas Recorded: Jun 20 2019 43 mins
    Matt Angerer
    Over the last few years, a major shift has occurred in the Quality Assurance (QA) and Software Testing Management space. Organizations are adopting smart test automation, but continue to find the need for traditional PMO-level reporting offered by tools like Micro Focus ALM and Quality Center. Often, this results in a tool mismatch that negatively impacts the ability to report in real-time across all phases of manual and automated testing.

    Smart test automation is no longer a “nice to have” but rather a foundational aspect of the testing process, and this is impacting the toolchain. Organizations are adding new test management tools like Selenium, Tricentis Tosca and others to their suite to better align with their Agile and test automation efforts. Global QA Directors are recognizing a multi-vendor and multi-tool approach to software quality assurance with commercial and open-source tools yields the best results.

    With test planning, design, execution, and reporting now split across multiple tools, organizations have lost their visibility into key QA metrics for measuring manual vs. automated test execution effectiveness, test automation progress, automated testing execution progress, and defect remediation for all phases of the software testing lifecycle.

    Join Senior Value Stream Architect, Matt Angerer, to learn how Tasktop can help you:

    •Modernize test management by adding new, specialized tools for test automation
    •Improve collaboration between QA teams working in their preferred tools of choice
    •Eliminate the laborious effort of manual synchronization and report generation
    •Centralize test data from automated and manual tests spanning multiple tools and instances for real-time reporting

  • Introduction to Incast, Head of Line Blocking, and Congestion Management Recorded: Jun 18 2019 61 mins
    Sathish Gnanasekaran, Broadcom; John Kim, Mellanox; J Metz, Cisco; Tim Lustig, Mellanox
    For a long time, the architecture and best practices of storage networks have been relatively well-understood. Recently, however, advanced capabilities have been added to storage that could have broader impacts on networks than we think.

    The three main storage network transports - Fibre Channel, Ethernet, and InfiniBand – all have mechanisms to handle increased traffic, but they are not all affected or implemented the same way. For instance, placing a protocol such as NVMe over Fabrics can mean very different things when looking at one networking method in comparison to another.

    Unfortunately, many network administrators may not understand how different storage solutions place burdens upon their networks. As more storage traffic traverses the network, customers face the risk of congestion leading to higher-than-expected latencies and lower-than expected throughput. Watch this webinar to learn:

    •Typical storage traffic patterns
    •What is Incast, what is head of line blocking, what is congestion, what is a slow drain, and when do these become problems on a network?
    •How Ethernet, Fibre Channel, InfiniBand handle these effects
    •The proper role of buffers in handling storage network traffic
    •Potential new ways to handle increasing storage traffic loads on the network
