  • Containers and Cloud-Native: Security in a DevOps Environment Dec 4 2018 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Rick Moy (Acalvio), Dan Hubbard (Lacework), Wei Dang (StackRox), Bashyam Anant (Cavirin)
    Containers and cloud-native development impacts security significantly. The mission hasn’t changed – we still need to harden the environment, reduce the attack surface, and find and stop bad guys. But the tactics must change – the old tools don’t work with this new infrastructure, and most importantly the processes have to change to fit the new DevOps world.

    Beyond meeting the technical requirements needed to secure the environment, security solutions for cloud-native development must tightly integrate with the ecosystem and workflows of DevOps. Examples of meeting these DevOps needs are tight integration with Kubernetes, leveraging the context available across the declarative info of containers, and tapping into the feedback loop integral to DevOps to enable continuous improvement in security.

    During this live panel, experts from Acalvio, Lacework, StackRox and Cavirin will discuss the technical and people aspects of building successful security for containerized apps and cloud-native development.
  • Crafting a Next-Generation Enterprise Architecture Nov 27 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Johna Till Johnson, CEO & Founder, Nemertes Research
    Enterprise Architecture is dead. Long live Enterprise Architecture!

    In the face of DevOps and Agile development methodologies, many enterprises have backed off entirely from the concept of an enterprise architecture. That's a mistake. Enterprise Architecture is needed more urgently than ever before--but not the old, silo-ed, inflexible architecture.

    Next-generation Enterprise Architecture needs to be fast, flexible, and as adaptive as next-generation development methodologies. It needs to encompass the radical changes in infrastructure, from virtualization to cloud- and mobile-first.

    And it's absolutely essential for enterprises who want to align their technology investments with their fast-moving business goals.

    This webinar reviews the fundamentals of enterprise architecture and provides a blueprint for a next-generation EA that encompasses DevOps, cloud, mobility, virtualization, microservices, and more!
  • Networking Requirements for Scale-Out Storage Recorded: Nov 14 2018 44 mins
    John Kim, Mellanox; Saqib Jang, Chelsio; Fred Zhang, Intel
    Scale-out storage is increasingly popular for cloud, high-performance computing, machine learning, and certain enterprise applications. It offers the ability to grow both capacity and performance at the same time and to distribute I/O workloads across multiple machines.

    But unlike traditional local or scale-up storage, scale-out storage imposes different and more intense workloads on the network. Clients often access multiple storage servers simultaneously; data typically replicates or migrates from one storage node to another; and metadata or management servers must stay in sync with each other as well as communicating with clients. Due to these demands, traditional network architectures and speeds may not work well for scale-out storage, especially when it’s based on flash. Join this webinar to learn:

    •Scale-out storage solutions and what workloads they can address
    •How your network may need to evolve to support scale-out storage
    •Network considerations to ensure performance for demanding workloads
    •Key considerations for all flash
  • Create a Smarter and More Economic Cloud Storage Architecture Recorded: Nov 7 2018 55 mins
    Michelle Tidwell, IBM; Eric Lakin, University of Michigan; Mike Jochimsen, Kaminario; Alex McDonald, NetApp
    Building a cloud storage architecture requires both storage vendors, cloud service providers and large enterprises to consider new technical and economic paradigms in order to enable a flexible and cost efficient architecture.

    Economic:
    Cloud infrastructure is often procured by service providers and large enterprises in the traditional way – prepay for expected future storage needs and over provision for unexpected changes in demand. This requires large capital expenditures with slow cost recovery based on fluctuating customer adoption. Giving these cloud service providers flexibility in the procurement model for their storage allows them to more closely align the expenditure on infrastructure resources with the cost recovery from customers, optimizing the use of both CapEx and OpEx budgets.

    Technical:
    Clouds inherently require often unpredictable scalability – both up and down. Building a storage architecture with the ability to rapidly allocate resources for a specific customer need and reallocate resources based on changing customer requirements allows the cloud service provider to optimize storage capacity and performance pools in their data center without compromising the responsiveness to the change in needs. Such architecture should also align to the datacenter level orchestration system to allow for even higher level of resource optimization and flexibility.

    In this webcast, you will learn:
    •How modern storage technology allows you to build this infrastructure
    •The role of software defined storage
    •Accounting principles
    •How to model cloud costs of new applications and or re-engineering existing applications
    •Performance considerations
  • IBM and Red Hat: How Enterprises can Prepare for Major Cloud Acquisitions Recorded: Nov 1 2018 61 mins
    Mark Thiele, Rob Hirschfeld, Ian Smith
    Being deemed as the "most significant tech acquisition of 2018," IBM's purchase of Red Hat for $34 billion is not your average M&A. Apparently the cloud computing industry is in for another major disruption as a purchase of this size could change the market forever.

    The biggest issue being addressed with this deal is the ability to easily move data around and between platforms, and ultimately expanding upon hybrid cloud offerings. Join this live expert panel discussion with cloud industry visionaries as they discuss the following:

    - What this means for IBM and Red Hat's competitors
    - Who is it relevant to and why?
    - Is this is an indication of other big cloud computing deals to come and if so, how should enterprises prepare when selecting their technology providers?
    - What does this mean for hybrid cloud and containers?
    - Will this acquisition be different from HP's acquisition of Compaq? Of others in the Cloud market?

    Moderator: Mark Thiele, Director of Engineering - Edge Computing, Ericsson
    Panelists: Rob Hirschfeld, Founder/CEO, RackN and Ian Smith, CEO, Gospel Technology

  • Building a Cloud-First Policy in a Hybrid Environment Recorded: Oct 17 2018 38 mins
    Mike Openshaw, Senior Enterprise Architect, 6point6
    Cloud computing has become synonymous with the digital agenda. Looking across the 2018 IT estate, cloud is no longer conspicuous by its presence but by its absence. Gartner projects the market size and growth of the cloud service industry at nearly three times the growth of the overall IT services industry through 2022. Cloud is agnostic of industry sector, having already established a material foothold in banks, schools, governments and healthcare.

    In this webinar, we will explore what a cloud-first policy means for you no matter where you are on your cloud journey, with a focus on both where your remaining on-premise IT estate sits and how this fits into a cloud-first world.

  • How to Develop a Cloud-First Strategy with a Cloud-Native Approach Recorded: Oct 17 2018 38 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, CIO Advisor & Mentor, IT Evangelist, Ensono & Cloud Industry Forum
    There is much talk in the tech community about the best approach to adopting a cloud first strategy and which solutions best fit organisations.

    Multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, cloud first, cloud native are all options but too many organisations miss the critical factor. Any technology strategy requires that the organisational culture and the people match the technology approach. A cloud first technology strategy requires a very different mindset to more traditional approaches and adopting a different culture and approach and leading a team of people in this world is very different. Building technology without the underpinning cultural change invariably results in less than successful cloud adoption.

    In this webinar, we will examine some of the simple changes that can be made to the culture and structure of an IT function to create a foundation for a more successful implementation of a cloud first strategy.

  • Getting Ready for a Multi-cloud future with Containers and Kubernetes Recorded: Oct 16 2018 50 mins
    Ritesh Patel, Co-Founder & VP of Products at Nirmata
    For the last few years, there has been an ongoing debate about multi-cloud/hybrid cloud vs single cloud approach. However, there is increasing evidence that the future will be multi-cloud. Data from a recent survey released by Forrester Research indicates:

    62% of public cloud adopters are using 2+ unique cloud environments/platforms

    74% of enterprises describe their strategy as hybrid/multi-cloud today

    So, the question is what does this mean for your applications? Does adopting multi-cloud increase management complexity? How can you effectively control and manage spend?

    In this webinar, we will discuss the benefits and challenges of a multi-cloud approach. We will see how containers are becoming a key building block for enabling application portability and how Kubernetes is becoming the toolbox across clouds. Finally, we will discuss real-world best practices for enabling multi-cloud deployments.

  • How to Integrate Cloud-Native Apps with Next-Gen Cloud Environments Recorded: Oct 16 2018 33 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, CIO Advisor & Mentor, IT Evangelist, Ensono & Cloud Industry Forum
    We are already on the edge of a new paradigm in IT where developers can focus purely on their code and the applications are delivered by the cloud provider who delivers computing power as required.

    Whilst this approach works for cloud native applications, how do we integrate these next generation clouds with the legacy systems we already have? How do we create a serverless environment after years of creating servers and how do we connect seemingly un-connectable systems such as mainframes into this new paradigm?

    In this webinar we examine the tools and options now available and soon to be available in the next generation of cloud computing and seek to understand how these connect back to the current world and establish some possible journeys for the legacy applications into the next generation of cloud.

  • [Ep.21] Founders Spotlight: Matt Angerer, Founder, VerticalRent Recorded: Oct 3 2018 48 mins
    Matt Angerer, Founder, VerticalRent
    In 2014, the founders of VerticalRent (www.verticalrent.com) were featured by Microsoft BizSpark for their early achievements with launching the industry leading rental property management and tenant screening software platform for property managers and landlords. In that article, Microsoft wrote: Matt Angerer is an IT professional by day and a landlord by night. At all times, he has an entrepreneur’s heart and mindset.

    A lot has changed since 2014. VerticalRent has more than quadrupled in the sheer number of landlords using the platform from every corner of the United States. The one thing that has not changed is that VerticalRent remains a small operation without employees that epitomizes the concept of a Lean Startup. If you're an IT professional by day who has been toiling with the idea of launching your own "side-gig", you'll want to tune into this BrightTalk webinar to learn how Matt Angerer, Founder of VerticalRent, started with a simple idea and scaled it into a platform that services over 25,000 landlords and nearly 50,000 renters across the United States in 5 short-years -- all while keeping his day job, running his rental properties, and financially supporting a family of 4.

    Matt will share with you the techniques he learned that allowed him to balance his personal and professional life to create a software as a service business. In this Webinar, he'll cover:
    - The Learn Start Up Mentality - What it Means and How to Live it Day by Day
    - Why a Slow-Growth Approach is Better for Certain Personality Types
    - How Anyone Can Create a SaaS Platform to Create Side Revenue
    - Why SaaS is More Lucrative in the Long-Term than Consulting
    - The Darkside of Entrepreneurship and Why Its Necessary
