The Next Generation of Application Performance for the Cloud

Dr. Jim Metzler, Industry Analyst with Ashton, Metzler & Assoc. and David Oliver, Sr. Product Manager, VNS
The cloud frees your company from the burdens of building IT infrastructure but not from the responsibility of ensuring it all works. You will still get the call when customers can’t buy products off your website or finance can’t close the quarter in your ERP system. What will you do next?

For years enterprises have worked with network providers based on clear physical demarcation points, segmenting responsibility. That is no longer possible in today’s virtual world. We need Virtual Demarcations and the Enterprise needs a toolset to provide overall performance visibility.

During this discussion noted industry analyst Dr. Jim Metzler will review current industry trends and best practices in managing application and network performance in a Cloud or Virtualized environments. This will be followed by an overview from Mr. Doug Roberts who will share the newest technologies that provide visibility that reaches across groups and various network infrastructure components allowing for increased IT efficiency.

  • Pass-the-hash and similar credential theft and reuse attacks are among the greatest security threats facing organizations today. With an impact that extends well beyond Microsoft Windows and Active Directory environments — and with no definitive means of remediation — it should come as no surprise that these types of attacks have been an underlying component of just about every targeted attack disclosed in the past several years, including those perpetrated against Saudi Aramco, Target, and The Wall Street Journal — just to name few.

    Join us Thursday, February 26th at 1 pm to learn:

    - How this highly popular and devastatingly effective class of attacks works
    - The basics of the pass-the-hash kill chain
    - An approach, based on design and administrative best practices, for mitigating attacks
    - The role privileged identity management solutions, like Xsuite, can play in implementing these practices

    Presenters:

    - Mark Bouchard, Co-Founder and VP of Research, CyberEdge Group, LLC
    - Dale Gardner, Senior Director, Product Marketing, Xceedium, Inc.
  • As a business, concerns over RTO, RPO, costs, security, and data privacy have historically made the decision for cloud backup a complicated one. However, cloud technologies continue to evolve, and can now provide substantial cost benefits while overcoming the most stringent security, data privacy, storage and performance hurdles. This makes it a perfect fit for many backup needs — especially remote office server backup.

    In this session we’ll cover:

    * The state of the cloud and the latest advancements for D2C server backup
    * How security and data storage advancements are addressing key enterprise data privacy concerns
    * How to leverage the cloud for remote office server backup and archiving, while significantly lowering storage and administration expenses

  • AANPM for Dummies Webinar 3: AANPM Implementation Mar 12 2015 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    An AANPM solution should focus on the real-time performance of end users. Instead of making use of 100% synthetic tests into an application environment, real end-user traffic can be used to find slow application response times, changes in network latency, and poorly written application code.

    Attention can be focused on the true root cause of the performance problem, rather than engaging in guesswork network troubleshooting. An AANPM solution aids IT organizations in quickly identifying the component of the network or application that is inducing the delay, enabling engineers to resolve the problem.

    In this third of four webinars we will look at how an AANPM solution is implemented and how it benefits engineers and technicians.

  • Conquer War Room Problem Solving Across The Distributed Enterprise Recorded: Jul 14 2014 58 mins
    As your business grows and expands, so does the complexity of managing application and network performance to deliver quality end user experience. The added challenge is that the IT landscape within most organizations is made up of independent networks and applications, managed by teams within their own siloes of responsibility, often with their own tools optimized for specific discipline. When issues arise, it requires a collaborative analysis at the problem in order to reach an agreed upon identification of the issue, which often drives the cross-functional IT team into the “War Room” scenario.
    View this on-demand webinar for a discussion about how to monitor and troubleshoot performance problems in a complex ecosystem addressing:
    1.Data gathering for monitoring, security, compliance
    2.Architect an infrastructure to monitor performance across multiple switches, data centers and virtual environments
    3.Maximizing visibility across the distributed enterprise
  • Five Best Practices for Application-aware Network Performance Management (AANPM) Recorded: Apr 7 2014 59 mins
    Despite the fact that organizations and the network infrastructures that support them continue to grow in size and complexity, expectations regarding application performance are not being relaxed. One effective response is to establish clear and definitive visibility of application and service activity and from the network perspective.

    Application-aware Network Performance Management (AANPM) practices and products are designed specifically for such purposes, providing detailed insights into exactly who is using which resources, what quality of experience is taking place, and where to look when things go wrong. Such information can significantly improve planning, monitoring, and troubleshooting efforts.
  • End User Experience Monitoring - Real Time and Back in Time in Just a Few Clicks Recorded: Feb 12 2014 44 mins
    It’s no longer enough to understand just the health of your endpoints or even the flow of traffic across them. As the demands on IT have increased, so has the importance of understanding the true end user experience when managing and monitoring the performance of both your infrastructure and your applications. When users experience poor performance it’s crucial to have visibility into that users actual experience. Watch this on-demand webinar to learn how you can gain insight into individual user and even the individual transaction from a passive, agentless, network perspective.
  • Mitigating the Complexity of Packet Analysis in the Data Center Recorded: Jan 15 2014 60 mins
    In this on-demand webinar, we examine the challenges faced by Network Engineers when they are tasked with troubleshooting problems in the data center. At times, applications and network servers suffer poor performance and quality, requiring root cause analysis. Due to the complexity of these systems, this often requires packet-level visibility. The intermittent behavior of many of these performance problems requires 24/7 capture. The "Big Data and growing" nature of the data center makes finding network and application problems at the packet level like looking for a needle in a haystack.
  • Tips for Tackling Bandwidth Management Recorded: Dec 11 2013 34 mins
    In this 30 min. on-demand webcast you will learn about the concepts noted below and see a live demo showing how Visual TruView tackles Capacity Planning in just a few mouse clicks:

    -Understand Bandwidth Resources and Performance Tradeoffs – Bad performance does not necessarily mean that bandwidth is not sufficient. Knowing how busy links are, and for how long,is key to gauging the correlation between bandwidth and performance.

    -Use the Right Tools for the Job – Trying to detect over-utilization of bandwidth can be difficult when the tools are not well suited to the job. The key questions to answer are, has the link been over-utilized, for how long, and by what application and what end-user?

    -Account for Business Hours – Having a combination of real-time and back-in-time views allows IT to see what is happening more quickly, solve problems faster, and move on to more strategic initiatives efficiently.

    -Determine if is Bandwidth Being Used for Business? – There are two types of traffic, business and recreational. Obviously, business has priority, so it is important to know why a busy link is busy. Is it usage of a business application? Is it the breaking news story everyone is streaming to the desktop? Even if it is a business application causing congestion, does that application really need to consume that much bandwidth?

    -Streamline the Process – With networks growing quickly, the job of understanding what links are busy, when and why, gets more complex and time consuming. The amount of time taken to perform proactive capacity planning is the main reason why the job does not get done
