Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Monitor with Discipline – Data Center 2020

The data center is evolving to encompass all manners of architecture from server-less aka functions-as- a-service to containers and microservices while balancing more mature constructs like virtualization and software-defined constructs. The reality is that the same fundamental issues abound while new challenges will appear.

In this session, we will discuss how to monitor data centers with discipline to handle the old and new pain points that will arise in 2020.

- What will 2020 data centers look like? Who will be the key providers of services?

- How do I keep my career viable in 2020?

- What should I put into practice to deliver success in 2020 data centers?

  • A 2020 Approach to Automating Infrastructure Management Recorded: Apr 23 2020 47 mins
    Alex Peay, (SaltStack), John Gentry (Virtana) Nital Gandhi (BOIT Consulting), Craig Theriac (Scale Computing)
    Infrastructure management in 2020 is a different game to the one it was in previous decades. In 2020, automation is the key differentiator, making waves across data center software and hardware and bringing in the ability to automatically detect and monitor connectivity, document the presence of network devices, update records with any modifications - and much more.

    This intelligent approach to the data center is fast becoming mission-critical, but there are challenges that need to be overcome in order to ensure the approach taken is the right one.

    Join this panel of experts as they discuss these automation infrastructure challenges and how to overcome them, including:

    - How data scale and edge-to-core data center architectures impact automation management strategies
    - How to overcome the hurdle of integrating DCIM automation tools
    - How to ensure automation management is a benefit to data center teams, not a threat

  • How To Maintain Control Of Multi-Data Center and Hybrid Environments Recorded: Apr 23 2020 55 mins
    David Cuthbertson, CEO, Square Mile Systems
    Management and control of any distributed IT infrastructure is increasing in difficulty with the variety of options available for hosting computing resources.

    The benefits of on-premise, co-location, cloud and managed services continue to evolve, though they still all have to deliver reliable and secure computing services. Governance and control requirements continue to increase with the processes and systems that IT teams use coming under increasing scrutiny.

    C level executives don’t want to keep hearing that their organizations (or outsource partners) struggle to know how many servers they have, what they do and the risks they currently live with in the new reality of data breaches, insider attacks and increasing systems complexity.
  • Can Data Centers Handle the Increased Remote Working Caused by Coronavirus? Recorded: Mar 31 2020 61 mins
    Moderator: Elisabeth Thomas | Panellists: Jeanne Morain, Simon Ratcliffe
    With Coronavirus having infected 785,000 people worldwide at the time of writing, many companies are enforcing a remote working rule to protect its workforce and minimize the threat of the virus. As such, there will be increased use of online conferencing tools and monitoring tools to remotely manage IT workloads and continue business as usual.

    Data center operators are taking steps to ensure continued operations, and also to provide mission-critical technology to support first responders, hospitals and public agencies reacting to COVID19’s impact.

    But how do data center operators ensure their digital infrastructure can handle this much use? Join this panel of experts as they discuss:

    - Preparing for the increase of hospitals’ use of data centers for data and image storage and transmission
    - Ensuring business as usual for companies’ sudden switch to a temporarily remote workforce
    - How to ensure your investments in maintaining continued operations during this period last beyond the threat of Coronavirus

  • Data Privacy & Why it Matters Recorded: Dec 11 2019 62 mins
    Eric Hibbard, CISSP-ISSAP, ISSMP, ISSEP, CISA, CCSP; Steven W. Teppler, Esq.; Thomas Rivera, Chair, SNIA DPPC
    Failing to protect sensitive information can put a lot of people at risk of being exploited by cybercriminals, and can make a company face enormous legal penalties.

    The way information is shared and stored can put the information at risk.

    It is risky to store personal information on portable devices, which are easily lost or stolen.

    In addition, the consequences of a data breach can be devastating. Identity theft could lead to financial losses, and a company could face lawsuits and legal penalties.

    This presentation will cover what kinds of personal information must be protected & guidelines for keeping this info safe.

    After viewing this session, attendees should:
    1. Understand how Privacy is defined
    2. Highlight some of the Privacy regulations from around the globe
    3. Understand what information to safeguard
    4. Understand how these privacy regulations affect organizations that handle personal information

    Skytap Cloud environments provide several unique capabilities that cannot be found anywhere else in today's cloud technologies.

    To facilitate a cloud-first development process comprised of the continuous delivery of quality code in small, frequent batches, infrastructure resources must be available on-demand, without the need manual intervention, or a team of scriptwriters.

    Network isolation in Skytap enables development teams to provision multiple replicas of full applications in parallel, removing configuration drift and environmental issues while streamlining development, test and release.

    Build your environment, save as a template, provision on-demand, and adopt new tools and processes. Moving to DevOps for traditional applications begins with Skytap. No other Cloud does it this way, and no other Cloud is as effective in changing the way we view infrastructure.
