Infrastructure as Code Accelerates Enterprise DevOps

Infrastructure as Code (Iac) is marketed as the answer to all automation problems. How can that be true when no one really has a good definition? Let’s fix that!

This talk captures ideas from a tweet battle started when Rob asked for a definition. We’ll decompose that #IaC thread into six themes from programmatic configuration up to CI/CD pipelines. Then we’ll explore how each theme interlocks in specific and important ways using 10 years of history around Digital Rebar as an example.

  • Storage Networking Security Series: Security & Privacy Regulations Jul 28 2020 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Thomas Rivera, VMware; Eric Hibbard, SNIA Security Technical Work Group Chair; J Metz, SNIA Board of Directors
    Worldwide, regulations are being promulgated and aggressively enforced with the intention of protecting personal data. These regulatory actions are being taken to help mitigate exploitation of this data by cybercriminals and other opportunistic groups who have turned this into a profitable enterprise. Failure to meet these data protection requirements puts individuals at risk (e.g., identity theft, fraud, etc.), as well as subjecting organizations to significant harm (e.g., legal penalties).

    This webcast highlights common privacy principles and themes within key privacy regulations. In addition, the related cybersecurity implications are explored. Lastly, the session will probe a few of the recent regulations/laws to outline interesting challenges due to over and under-specification of data protection requirements (e.g., “reasonable” security).

    After viewing this webcast, attendees should understand:
    •How privacy and security is characterized
    •Data retention and deletion requirements
    •Core data protection requirements of sample privacy regulations from around the globe
    •The role that security plays with key privacy regulations
    •Data breach implications and consequences

  • CI/CD Pipelines for DevSecOps with Hybrid Cloud Jul 14 2020 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Mike Fraser, Co-founder, CEO and Chief Architect, Refactr
    Leveraging CI / CD pipelines, enterprises want to be able to automate in a hybrid world, with some on-premise and public cloud automation. Both enterprise and Department of Defense tech teams are facing a huge challenge as more and more IT infrastructure is moved to the cloud and made fully automated. The days of manual deployments of infrastructure are ending fast, and IT teams need automation tools to move to the modernization of IT becoming code including infrastructure and security. The key is to have the flexibility to have developers be able to wear the DevOps engineer hat with a platform they can use to create CI / CD pipelines. The CI/CD pipelines can easily use DevOps tools to create integrations into ticketing systems, run security remediation playbooks, deploy Kubernetes with a security benchmark, and even harden on-premise sensors.

    This session will cover:
    - Explain what is DevSecOps
    - Explain CI / CD pipelines
    - CI / CD Pipelines for DevSecOps: How it works
    - Why hybrid CI / CD pipelines are required for Enterprise
    - Real-world use cases of Hybrid Cloud CI / CD Pipelines for DevSecOps

    Phil Cayton, Intel; John Kim; NVIDIA; David Peterson, Broadcom; Ilker Cebeli; Samsung; Tim Lustig, NVIDIA
    In the past couple of years since its introduction, NVMe™ over Fabrics (NVMe-oF™) has not been resting on any laurels. Work has been ongoing, and there are several updates that are worth talking about.

    There is more to a technology than its core standard, of course, and many different groups have been hard at work at improving upon, and fleshing out, many of the capabilities that are related to NVMe-oF.

    This webcast will explore a few of these projects and how they relate to implementing the technology. In particular, we’ll be looking at:

    •A summary of new items in NVMe-oF 1.1
    •Updates about what is happening in FC-NVMe-2
    •How SNIA’s provisioning model helps NVMe-oF Ethernet Bunch of Flash (EBOF) devices
    •Managing and provisioning NVMe-oF devices with SNIA Swordfish™
  • A Multi-tenant Multi-cluster Kubernetes Datapocalypse is Coming Recorded: Jun 23 2020 57 mins
    Paul Burt, Technical Product Marketing Engineer, NetApp; Jim Fister, Principal, The Decision Place
    The need for rapid deployment of scalable clusters is creating an opportunity for container solutions such as Kubernetes. But what are the implications of multiple Kubernetes clusters in a broad deployment? What happens if a cluster goes down? What’s the impact on business resiliency? Managing and securing multiple clusters is becoming a key topic and area of debate. Multi-cluster Kubernetes that provides robustness & resilience is rapidly moving from “best practice” to a “must have”.

    In this webcast we’ll dive into:
    •The history of multi-cluster Kubernetes
    •How multi-cluster setups could affect data heavy workloads (such as multiple microservices backed by independent data stores)
    •Managing multiple clusters
    •Keeping the business functioning if a cluster goes down
    •How to prepare for the coming datapocalypse
  • CI/CD Pipelines for DevSecOps with Hybrid Cloud Recorded: Jun 18 2020 47 mins
    Mike Fraser, CEO, Refactr
    The days of manually deploying infrastructure are over. IT teams need automation tools to modernize towards IT-as-Code. This is achieved through flexibility; IT teams must operate on a platform that accommodates CI/CD pipelines. The pipelines, in turn, must meld with DevOps tools to integrate with ticketing systems, run security remediation playbooks, deploy Kubernetes with a security benchmark, and even harden on-premise sensors.

    - What is DevSecOps and what are CI/CD pipelines
    - How CI/CD Pipelines work for DevSecOps
    - Why enterprises need hybrid CI/CD pipelines

  • Increase cloud app security post COVID with Confidential Computing Recorded: Jun 17 2020 45 mins
    Bala Kalavala, Chief Architect, Wipro Digital
    Organizations embracing cloud pre-COVID are accelerating their journey by creating core services in cloud. The concern of privacy & security of business intellectual property is being addressed aggressively adopting evolving Confidential Computing Framework.

    Confidential computing allows users to upload encrypted code and data to cloud and get encrypted results back with guaranteed privacy.

    Confidential Computing means cloud providers can’t see customers’ secrets even if cloud administrators are malicious or hackers have exploited kernel bugs in hosts.

  • Fast, Secure, Scalable: Why IoT Needs Automation to Succeed Recorded: Jun 9 2020 57 mins
    Johna Till Johnson, CEO and Founder, Nemertes Research; Russell Rice, VP Product Strategy at Ordr
    IoT initiatives are exploding. Nemertes has found that companies with successful IoT initiatives are increasing both the number of projects and the device count, with growth that ranges up to 100%+ year over year.

    Scaling these initiatives requires scaling not only the IoT solutions, but also the infrastructure and cybersecurity environments in which they operate. As enterprise technologists begin to apply next-generation cybersecurity approaches like zero-trust, they need to think seriously about how to automate the control and management of their cybersecurity and infrastructure.

    The answer? Automation. Successful organizations are more likely to automate earlier, more aggressively, and more comprehensively—with dramatic improvements in performance, security, and reliability.

    Find out why automation is critical to securing, managing, and scaling IoT—and what best practices can help ensure success in implementing it.
