Is Your Organization Ready for the Cloud? Which Approach is Right for You?
As the cloud value proposition becomes more apparent to enterprises, the focus shifts to implementation. This webinar unravels the benefits, tradeoffs and misconceptions associated with cloud computing, equipping IT executives and enterprise decision makers with a framework for evaluating their current IT infrastructure and making more informed decisions about how to best leverage the cloud. We’ll frame the debate between the public and private cloud, expanding the definition of “hybrid” to include a “portfolio” approach to XaaS—in which CIOs and CTOs allocate workloads, applications and data across a variety of outsourced solutions to truly right-size and optimize IT.
As chief architect of Latisys’ national data center footprint and services platform, Christian Teeft is uniquely positioned to unpack the key factors that any enterprise must consider when forming and executing their cloud and XaaS strategy—including high availability computing and storage requirements, security and compliance demands, price sensitivity, as well as expected scalability needs.

With everyone now transitioning to the cloud, the number one focus seems to be on selecting the right Cloud Service Provider (CSP). While this is important, that decision must be driven by proper enterprise data governance. Since the enterprise and CSP share data security responsibilities in the cloud, a failure to align IT governance and cloud infrastructure controls with this fact will lead to yet another cloud transition failure. This webinar will provide the foresight you need for success during your organization's infrastructure transition to the cloud, and more.

Cloud service providers like AWS and Azure offer many advantages to the Enterprise, including OPEX operating models, flexible commercial terms and elasticity in computing. In the era of BYOL and License Mobility if you're planning to migrate your existing licensing agreements over to these IaaS environments, you run the risk of eroding your planned savings, creating a suboptimal licensing environment and in the worst case becoming non-complaint. Hear how Concorde has helped leading enterprises gain the visibility and insight to plan for, migrate and manage their licenses to the Cloud and delivered the benefit of Future of Software Asset Management to the IaaS environment.

The topics of interoperability and portability are significant considerations in relation to the use of cloud services, but there is confusion and misunderstanding of exactly what this entails.
Interoperability and Portability for Cloud Computing: A Guide provides a clear definition of interoperability and portability and how these relate to various aspects of cloud computing and to cloud services.
This webinar will describe interoperability and portability in terms of a set of common cloud computing scenarios. This approach assists in demonstrating that both interoperability and portability have multiple aspects and relate to a number of different components in the architecture of cloud computing, each of which needs to be considered in its own right. The aim is to give both cloud service customers and cloud service providers guidance in the provision and selection of cloud services indicating how interoperability and portability affect the cost, security and risk involved.
Past infrastructures provided compute, storage and network enabling static enterprise deployments which changed every few years. This talk will analyze the consequences of a world where production SAP and Spark clusters including data can be provisioned in minutes with the push of a button.
What does it mean for the IT architecture of an enterprise? How to stay in control in a super agile world?

Today's storage world would appear to have been divided into three major and mutually exclusive categories: block, file and object storage. Much of the marketing that shapes much of the user demand would appear to suggest that these are three quite distinct animals, and many systems are sold as exclusively either SAN for block, NAS for file or object. And object is often conflated with cloud, a consumption model that can in reality be block, file or object.
But a fixed taxonomy that divides the storage world this way is very limiting, and can be confusing; for instance, when we talk about cloud. How should providers and users buy and consume their storage? Are there other classifications that might help in providing storage solutions to meet specific or more general application needs?
This webcast will explore clustered storage solutions that not only provide multiple end users access to shared storage over a network, but allow the storage itself to be distributed and managed over multiple discrete storage systems. In this webcast, we’ll discuss:
•General principles and specific clustered and distributed systems and the facilities they provide built on the underlying storage
•Better known file systems like NFS, GPFS and Lustre along with a few of the less well known
•How object based systems like S3 have blurred the lines between them and traditional file based solutions.
This webcast should appeal to those interested in exploring some of the different ways of accessing & managing storage, and how that might affect how storage systems are provisioned and consumed. POSIX and other acronyms may be mentioned, but no rocket science beyond a general understanding of the principles of storage will be assumed. Contains no nuts and is suitable for vegans!
When it comes to Cloud Risk Management, there are a lot of moving parts. From traditional outsourcing, to managed services, to cloud computing, it can get confusing trying to communicate these changes and risks to the Board. In this webinar, you will learn the difference between these key players, how IT security plays a role as cloud communication demands continue to increase, and how to build and consolidate your CSP and Corporate Risk Profile for your organization.
This session covers everything from end-to-end encryption, storage, virtualization, and more! Join us to start putting together your action plan today.

In an SDN-world, every layer of the network is defined as code. This removes the ability to design or rely on physical controls for security and traffic management. Additionally, each new application requires a network architecture concept. It's very easy for large, distributed organizations to get this wrong. How can you ensure that your organization is using software-defined networks in the cloud in EXACTLY the way that you want to be using them? And at scale, that problem only gets more and more challenging. The answer is clear - automation is the key. Design and build rules that can take action in real-time to enforce an SDN configuration with proper policy and security.
To accelerate your business outcomes should you use public or private cloud? The jury has decided and the verdict is: “hybrid.” So you need to manage a hybrid cloud, but what does this exactly mean? Hybrid Cloud Management means managing the entire cloud lifecycle: from design, through workload provisioning, to operations (e.g. monitoring, finance, change, and configuration). This Cloud Model Office webinar will show you Hybrid Cloud Management use cases in action. In this webinar you will see how you can implement capabilities like
Dynamic scalability (flexing)
Hybrid cloud provisioning
Capacity-driven service provisioning
Automated Change & Configuration management

As organizations create increasingly complex software applications, IT development teams evolved their software creation practices for more flexibility, moving from waterfall models to agile or lean development practices.
Today, DevOps designates a set of tools, processes, best practices and corporate management guidelines that make an IT organization more agile and more efficient. While the software tools and practices promoted by DevOps practitioners are well understood, rigid infrastructures reduce the benefits and hinders the application of agile methods.

In this webcast you will learn about:
-Dangerous new threats such as ransomware and hacktivism, and how they differ from traditional threats
-Why new threats require a new focus
-Cybersecurity frameworks and best practices
-Enhancing your data protection and recovery capabilities to improve your cybersecurity defenses
-Why some data protection approaches may not be sufficient for advanced threats and how an Isolated Recovery approach provides a best layer of defense
The competitive landscape of cloud computing in China and India looks very different today than it did a few years ago. Aside from gaining wholehearted support from local governments, positive investment climate has a role to play to ignite market interest and vendor support. While early cloud leaders like Amazon and Salesforce have helped define the evolving marketplace and invited further competition, local players, which used to be hampered by process oversights, are now turning to cloud-based business models and service delivery to reinvent themselves and stay agile as technology innovation collides with reality. How does the cloud market shape up in China and India so far? What types of cloud services will be important in near future? What does it mean for you going forward?
