Cloud computing has become central to current discussions about corporate information technology. To assess the impact and potential that cloud may have on your enterprise it is important to evaluate the claims made critically review these against your organisations’ reality. Drawing on extensive research this talk will walk through my “cloud desires framework” (recently published in the prestigious Journal of Information Technology).  The framework is structured around a series of technological and service ‘desires’, i.e. characteristics of cloud that are important for cloud users.

  • Building the Next Generation Branch Building the Next Generation Branch Chris Rogers, Director of Cloud Infrastructure, Silver Peak and Amit Jain, Sr. Product Manager, Nutanix Live 60 mins
    As companies expand and rapidly bring new branches online, the need arises to quickly establish connectivity to the datacenter and cloud applications - as well as build the extended network infrastructure. However, the skyrocketing cost and length of time required to connect users to applications via MPLS coupled with the disparate nature of the branch infrastructure is putting increased pressure on IT budgets and resources. While costs soar and time to market increases an organization’s competitiveness is compromised.

    Nutanix, delivering invisible infrastructure for next-generation enterprise computing and Silver Peak, the leader in building broadband and hybrid wide area networks, have partnered to deliver a combined solution that solves this problem – dramatically driving down costs, increasing performance and accelerating branch deployments.

    Join this webinar to learn how you can:

    •Eliminate under-utilized infrastructure silos, using up to 80% less space and 50% lower CAPEX
    •Save up to 90% in WAN OPEX by leveraging broadband vs MPLS
    •Speed up deployment with rapid connectivity, a turn-key infrastructure and zero-touch deployment of broadband WAN
    •Securely connect and accelerate remote office applications
    •Achieve centralized management and control with enhanced visibility into the network and applications

  • Spotlight on Europe: Tech Deep-Dive: SD-WAN for Telcos Spotlight on Europe: Tech Deep-Dive: SD-WAN for Telcos Ray Wong, Solutions Architect - EMEA, Parag Thakore, Director of Product Management Recorded: May 24 2016 62 mins
    Deploying new WAN services can take a long time and require a significant up-front capital investment. The software-defined nature of SD-WAN enables service agility, rapid rollout, and instant-on WAN that the Service Provider can immediately benefit from. This accelerates the time to market and time to revenue.

    Hear from experts at VeloCloud discuss the key SD-WAN capabilities and how the Service Providers already leverage them to create and operate new WAN services.
  • La VoIP et une astuce concernant OptiView XG dont vous ne soupçonniez pas l’exis La VoIP et une astuce concernant OptiView XG dont vous ne soupçonniez pas l’exis Thierry Mas Recorded: May 24 2016 57 mins
    Votre entreprise possède au moins un OptiView ®, vous savez donc probablement que cette tablette constitue le moyen le plus rapide de prouver qu’un problème « ne se situe pas au niveau du réseau » et d’en identifier l’origine.

    Mais saviez-vous qu’il est possible d’associer OptiView XG et TruView Live afin d’étendre la portée de la tablette au-delà d’une connexion directe, et permettre le dépannage de services basés dans le cloud, d’applications SaaS et, désormais, du trafic VoIP ?

    Inscrivez-vous à notre session en ligne gratuite. Vous découvrirez les avantages de cette technologie :
    •Tester les performances et la connectivité des transactions d’applications Web
    •Surveiller la disponibilité des services VoIP ainsi que la qualité des appels
    •Etablir des points de comparaison en temps réel sur la qualité du réseau

  • Health Management in Your Data Center Just Got Easier with Intel Virtual Gateway Health Management in Your Data Center Just Got Easier with Intel Virtual Gateway Ofer Lior, BDM, Intel Data Center Solutions - Dror Shenkar, Intel Data Center Solutions, Senior Application Engineer Recorded: May 23 2016 39 mins
    Health management in the data center has four main pillars. Monitoring, Analytics, Diagnostics and Remediation.

    In this session we will cover these main pillars and why they are important. We will unveil how you can use embedded sensors in the silicon available through standardized interfaces on your servers to help IT professionals start to add these pillars to their environment and begin to leverage them to help with MTTR reduction to outage avoidance. In the case of actual server issues, we will explain the ways to access those machines remotely and fix them with Intel Virtual Gateway.

    Highlights of the Four Main Pillars:
    •Monitoring: automated server health monitoring, failure alerting, health dashboard, and more.
    •Analytics: root cause with health details, failure device report severity indication, and health history.
    •Diagnostics: Remote vKVM access, integrated in-band access, component level health details.
    •Remediation: remote power on/off and remote vMedia
  • Using Chef Compliance to Secure your Servers Using Chef Compliance to Secure your Servers Joe Gardiner, Field Solutions Architect, Chef Recorded: May 20 2016 33 mins
    Chef Compliance lets you express your compliance rules as code. You can easily run those rules as tests whenever you want. You get immediate feedback on whether your servers are configured as they should be.

    Chef Compliance scans your servers to see if they are configured in accordance with your rules and generates a report that identifies the issues it found. You can then use Chef to remediate those problems.

    In this webinar, Joe Gardiner will demonstrate how Chef Compliance works by scanning a default installation of RHEL 7.0 on the public cloud to see if it is CIS compliant. After the scan identifies the problem areas, Joe will use Chef to bring the server in line with the CIS benchmarks.

    You’ll also learn about an offer from Chef to help you perform a scan of your infrastructure and get you started on the road to compliance.
