Carbon Footprint and Energy Efficiency Proof of Concept Panel Discussion
The ODCA worked with members to execute proof-of-concept (PoC) testing to investigate and validate the ODCA Usage Model: Carbon Footprint and Energy Efficiency. This panel discussion with the PoC authors will give an in-depth look at the test results and provide an opportunity to ask questions.
The Carbon Footprint and Energy Efficiency usage model describes a framework for determining the overall carbon footprint associated with cloud services. The combination of this framework and the ODCA Usage: Standard Units of Measure for IaaS provides enterprises a standard, verifiable method to measure and assess the amount of CO2 created as a by-product of their data center operations.
Presenters are: Pankaj Fichadia from National Australia Bank, Tate Cantrell from Verne Global, Michael Parks and Richard Dolan from Datapipe and Ian Lamont from BMW Group.

Installing network hardware in the Enterprise, Datacenter or Telecom site is so last decade. For Network Operators, planning rack space, power and cabling each time you need to add a network appliance is a real drag on the bottom line. Wouldn't it be great if you could leverage your investment in Cloud to optimize your network?
Network Function Virtualization (NFV) can be deployed to overcome some of the key challenges of modern networks and cloud adoption. In this session, you will learn about how the virtualization movement has moved beyond Compute and Storage infrastructure to bring the same benefits to Networking. Learn about NFV and its relation to Software Defined Networking, the differences between SDN and NFV, and how you can incorporate this into your Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) strategy.
Hear about the impact NFV has had on a managed services provider and apply those lessons to your own network operations.

In addition to the Cloud Maturity Model (CMM), the ODCA team have extensively rebuilt a practical process and the supporting analysis tooling to guide use of the CMM, and to guide organisations by defining actions to achieve effective Hybrid IT. This is through an increased cloud maturity level based on the increased business benefits that the increased levels of capability achievement should offer. This session will explore the capability areas, and the tooling (and resulting artefacts) leading between the various CMM levels. It will also reach into practical assessment considerations and review a resulting example Hybrid IT Roadmap.
William Dupley, HPE Canada’s Cloud Chief Technologist
The cloud represents a powerful new paradigm in computing—one that enables highly scalable applications and services to be accessed over the Internet on an as-needed basis, --- one that has significantly changed how IT is built, delivered and operated.
No longer is IT contained within the four walls of a company, now it is a combination of internal and external applications integrated into one Hybrid IT model. This new Hybrid IT model supports a new style of business and the democratization of IT. In a democratized IT model, anyone can create IT services. IT no longer needs to be involved in every application development exercise, now business units are able to build and provision their own IT systems using SasS and public cloud services.
This change to a Hybrid IT model requires both business and IT to rethink how application ecosystems are designed, constructed, delivered, and managed, and where application workloads should reside. .
During this seminar William Dupley, HPE Canada’s Cloud Chief Technologist will examine:
- The digital economy: realities and challenges
- Hewlett Packard Enterprise perspective on Hybrid IT
- Hybrid IT Architecture
o what does the future state look like?
o what are the business benefits?
- Describe the five domains of Hybrid IT
o Hybrid Infrastructure
o Hybrid Delivery
o Hybrid App Architecture/Workloads
o Hybrid DevOps
o Hybrid Service Management
- Outline the steps to a successful transformation to a Hybrid IT Operating Model using the ODCA Cloud Maturity Model
Three years ago, the ODCA looked at how difficult it would be to demonstrate virtual machine interoperability and found that interoperability was at best in its early stages.
A new ODCA team recently revisited that question, and additionally looked at how easy it would be to move a VM between a hypervisor in an enterprise and a public cloud. This presentation talks about the findings of that study, which also will be published in an ODCA white paper.

The Cloud Maturity Model (CMM) is one of the most widely utilized tools published by the Open Data Center Alliance. Gain a deeper knowledge of the CMM and the best-practices that have shaped this visionary tool over the past five years.
The objective of the CMM is to help enterprises:
- Evaluate where its IT organization stands in its ability to adopt and integrate cloud services
- Benchmark its IT organization against other industry adopters of cloud
- Build a custom roadmap for their organization towards establishing more effective Hybrid IT – integrating cloud services to improve, not just change, their IT offering and aligned to their specific needs and objectives.
Public- and private-sector organizations have used the ODCA’s CMM to guide wide-scale implementations including the selection of cloud solutions and services. Many forward-thinking vendors integrate ODCA best practices into product and service roadmaps to support open standards and interoperability.
Hear from the primary contributors to version 3.0 of the Cloud Maturity Model. These technology and business executives represent top, global enterprise IT organizations who are on the leading-edge of cloud adoption and organizational maturity.

DevOps addresses inefficiencies that result from keeping operations and development in separate silos. By connecting development and operations, enterprise IT departments can begin to break down the walls.
DevOps defines a set of roles and responsibilities focused on reducing risk in IT deployments and projects. The result is maximized automation, elimination of human error, increased consistency, and reduced time spent on the outages, as well as error detection and prevention brought about by unstable environments.
In this webinar, ODCA president, Gunnar Menzel, will share perspectives on the DevOps concept, focusing on key challenges it can help resolve and the benefits it can provide.
Business and IT leaders are understandably reluctant to retire considerable, legacy investment in technology, people, and processes due to security, risk, and regulatory compliance obligations. This creates a hybrid IT deployment model: an on-premise landscape of existing or legacy systems and off-premise cloud deployment of suitable IT capability.
The Open Data Center Alliance (ODCA) believes that integration of cloud deployments with enterprise landscapes should consider people, process, technology, and operating models. Doing so encourages faster cloud adoption, leverages existing enterprise investments in IT landscape and helps govern safe cloud adoption through effective risk and compliance management.

Lance Friend, Senior Vice President Dynamic Services, Infrastructure Services, Capgemini
Capgemini and Open Data Center Alliance (ODCA) have been working closely together for the past 4 years to develop the standards and approaches needed by the Cloud market place. Capgemini sees the Cloud as another form of IT service delivery provisioning in the same way of ‘grid’ or ‘mainframe computing’ in the past. It is viewed as one, valuable element of the balanced IT portfolio required by our clients. However, they also believe that the ‘easy to consume’ style of cloud is something that can be carried over into all areas of IT services supply through the orchestration of IT services. This presentation illustrates how Capgemini is continuing to develop hybrid IT services with its customers and the ODCA, helping the industry capitalize on opportunities presented by various forms of cloud services.

This presentation will give a look at the Open Data Center Alliance rev 2.0 software defined networking (SDN) usage model that incorporates network function virtualization, and five new usage scenarios.
SDN is no longer considered an emerging technology; the technology is proven, although it is still at an early stage in its life cycle. In comparison, NFV is at an earlier stage of development, but because the technology effectively complements SDN and is important to service providers, NFV is likely to be widely adopted across the industry.
To improve evaluations and decision making, IT departments and cloud subscribers will require standard features and defined metrics. The ODCA recognizes the need for the adoption of SDN and NFV in IaaS and management solutions that incorporate standard mechanisms to better manage network services. This presentation specifies actions and processes to advance development of practical solutions that help lower management complexity and costs, especially in heterogeneous, multi-vendor environments.

Join this webinar to see how the CloudPhysics Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer identifies opportunities to lower your costs of running applications on the public cloud.
The Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer automatically identifies on-premises virtual machines (VMs) that are over-provisioned with more resources (such as CPU and memory) than they use. This lets you optimize instance matching to the ideal cloud instances. Rightsizing reveals the verifiable cost of running workloads in the cloud. Now you can answer the question, “will we save money by migrating applications to the cloud?”
This webinar shows how Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer collects resource utilization data from each VM on a fine-grained basis, and then analyzes those data across time to discover the VM’s actual resource needs. Imagine an on-premises VM configured with 8 vCPUs: if the Rightsizer shows that it has never used more than 2 vCPUs, you can Rightsize that VM to a smaller instance in the cloud, saving substantial funds.
If you’re running Hadoop for big data analytics this webinar is for you!
Currently, there are two competing architectures for how to implement Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). The original HDFS approach utilizes storage co-located with the compute servers, but that can often present challenges of wasted compute and/or storage when you scale. An emerging alternative relies on dedicated storage resources shared by the compute cluster, providing a cost-effective and reliable solution.
Join Engineering Fellow and Chief Data Scientist Janet George, as she compares and contrasts these two approaches and provides definitive quantities guidelines to planners and architects to help identify the best solutions for your Big Data and analytic needs.
Between these two methods, we’ll compare and contrast:
-Data Reliability and Bit Loss
-Cost of Capacity
Ransomware is currently one of the most disruptive security challenges for enterprises. As it moves from an individual employee's PC to the corporate network, the impact can be significant. Despite research and analysis by security firms and analysts, most don't have a good idea of how a piece of ransomware actually operates, i.e. what is affected and when, what signals to look for, etc. Exabeam researchers have detonated nearly 100 strains of ransomware in the labs and produced a detailed analysis of how a ransomware attack actually unfolds, and how an organization might respond to shut it down. Join Exabeam and (ISC)2 on July 21, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern and gain a better understanding of the mechanisms of ransomware, how to detect it and shut down an attack.
Many enterprise organizations are moving beyond antivirus software, adding new types of controls and monitoring tools to improve incident prevention, detection, and response on their endpoints. Unfortunately, some of these firms are doing so by adding tactical technologies that offering incremental benefits only.
So what’s needed?
A strategic approach that covers the entire ESG endpoint security continuum from threat prevention to incident response. A truly comprehensive solution will also include advanced endpoint security controls that reduce the attack surface and tight integration with network security, SIEM, and threat intelligence to improve threat detection and response processes.
Join ESG senior principal analyst Jon Oltsik, Intel Security, and Bufferzone on a webinar on July 21 at 10am PT/1pm ET to learn more about next-generation endpoint security requirements and strategies.
