As you move your workloads to the cloud, you need to be aware of hidden dependencies whether in your workloads you have moved, or within the cloud itself. There are many aspects of the cloud that are hidden from view, and these cause unknown dependencies. Moving to rapidly, these dependencies could rear up and cause disaster or at the very least some headaches. A well thought out plan is required when using the cloud. Each dependency should be tackled, each should be discussed before entering the cloud, but often that is not always the case. We will look at these dependencies and provide actionable advice on best practices on dealing with these hidden dependencies. on Mar 19 2015 13:00

The Disaster Recovery Preparedness Council 2014 Annual Report reflects the enormous shortfall in DR preparedness of companies worldwide. Using a grading system from A (the best) to F (the worst), an alarming 73% of companies are failing in terms of disaster readiness, scoring ratings of either a D or F grade.  Reported losses from outages ranged from a few thousand dollars to millions of dollars with nearly 20% indicating losses of more than $50,000 to over $5 million.

Is your company at risk? For most IT organizations, backup and replication solutions have been the only affordable options to protect a majority of VMs. But when a crisis happens, recovery from backup can result in days or even weeks of downtime, particularly if new hardware must be purchased or testing was infrequent or inadequate.

In this Webinar you will learn about the dramatically simple new VMware disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity (BC) solution that leverages low cost, pay-as-you-go Amazon Web Services (AWS) as your data protection site.   It’s completely intuitive, unified with on-premise VMware management, and less than the price of basic backup!  We will show you how to:

  • Restore VMware operations in AWS within minutes of an on-premise failure
  • Intuitively manage your AWS site and workloads with VMware vCenter
  • Support large VMs, file servers & database servers
  • Automate DR/BC site setup & maintenance
  • Manage AWS security groups within VMware vCenter
  • Automate  hybrid networking for rapid restore following a failure
  • Easily test your restore points in AWS using VMware vCenter
  • Automatically recover VMs back on-premise at any time

Join us and learn how to protect your data center from the inevitable failure – whether it’s a catastrophic event, security breach or ordinary hardware failure!

Introducing HyTrust Boundary Controls

Virtualization and the cloud make data security more complicated. Specifically, customers have struggled to implement required controls to meet policies and compliance mandates. A common example, administrators have noted that there has been no automated way to ensure that workloads can only be instantiated on specific, designated, or trusted server, in a trusted location. Until Now.

HyTrust, through its technology collaboration with Intel, has extended its virtualization security portfolio with new capabilities to better secure the most important elements in virtualized datacenters and the cloud – applications and data.

Attend this webinar, featuring Eric Chiu, President and Founder of HyTrust and James Greene, Senior Security Engineer for Intel, to gain a better understanding of how HyTrust Boundary Controls work with common server infrastructures to provide mechanisms to define and enforce tighter geographic restrictions to ease compliance, deter data theft and prevent data center downtime. on Oct 09 2014 14:00

Your Cloud Security Checklist

What you must know when evaluating cloud encryption.

Virtualized environments have unique data security challenges,
especially if you¹re running your infrastructure in the public cloud.

When you consider using Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) from a
cloud service provider, traditional security measures like full drive
encryption don¹t always translate. Virtual machines are dynamic and
mobile, and are often replicated by your CSP for backup and availability. on Sep 18 2014 14:00

The evolution to virtualization and the cloud is inevitable. Companies simply have to be more nimble, reach more users and reduce cost as they migrate away from static security controls that are not flexible and cost effective. As amazing as it sounds, this cloud migration can be supported with dynamic security measures and compliance solutions that are more effective and less expensive over time. The cloud is poised to deliver both a more nimble and secure platform for future growth.

In this webinar, with security experts from Coalfire, Fortinet and HyTrust, you’ll learn how to leverage the power of cloud computing and enhance security and compliance at the same time. on Jun 26 2014 14:00

Innovation within the data center is at an all time high. From converged infrastructure offerings to virtualized compute, network & storage, we are doing more within our infrastructure than we’ve ever done before. Yet the management tool vendors lag woefully behind in applying some of these same innovative concepts to their tool sets. And even more unexplainable, we’re letting them get away with it! We’re still babysitting fragile tools and building large teams to oversee a management ecosystem that purported to save us all time and money.

From unstable agents to policies that drift out of sync, we can and should expect more from our management stack.

The 2014 Guide to Data Protection Success

Speaker:
Michael Krutikov, Senior Product Marketing Manager

Webcast Summary:
It’s 2014, do you know where you data is? Chances are:

  • If you’re still relying on physical servers for your IT; then your data is at higher risk than you know.
  • If you’re using virtualization; you may not be taking advantage of all it offers.

While greater than 75% of organizations are using virtualization in one way or another, only ~50% of servers are virtualized. This gap highlights the exposure that exists for many IT organizations, and that many are still struggling with how to resolve this.

IT decision makers will learn how to:

  • Identify opportunities in their own environment to improve efficiencies
  • Solve business problems for protecting critical data simply and completely
  • Leverage immediate cost-saving opportunities while delivering long term cost-savings

How to Achieve Compliance and Security in the SDDC – Live Webinar on January 28 at 11:00am PST

Presenters: Edward Haletky (The Virtualization Practice), Holland Barry (Catbird)

Compliance is not Security

Regulatory compliance can be achieved with the lowest levels of security in place. Defense-in-depth security begins with architecture and in the software-defined data center it requires a new level of administrative control. Security policies must be codified, automated, continuously monitored, validated, and enforced. And security must scale. Virtualization brings continuous change to the data center. Is your security keeping up?

Key takeaways from this session include:

  1. Security and compliance policies must be codified and automated in order to scale
  2. Network and data flow diagrams with accurate inventory and visibility to all connections between in-scope assets is essential
  3. Network activity must be monitored and enforced continuously with real-time notifications (undetected or months-long lag in detection of suspicious events are not acceptable)

Join Edward Haletky of The Virtualization Practice and Holland Barry of Catbird to learn more about security best practices within the software-defined data center.

The day is all about storage! As it can be quite a heavy subject we’ve split the day into two distinct areas:

Storage options for VDI: Morning Session

We all know that storage can often dictate the success of failure of a VDI project. We’ll examine some of the options available for VDI storage (SSD vs SAN vs Local vs RAM etc) and hear from some of the players in this area: Nimble, Whiptail, Atlantis and Citrix.

Storage options for user data: Afternoon Session

“The homedrive” has long been the only option open for the storage of user files. This is now changing and there are a multitude of new options appearing such as storage appliances and cloud-based storage.

We’ll look at some of the options such as AppSense DataNow, RES HyperDrive, and Citrix Sharefile. on Nov 07 2012 09:00

Cloud computing is the approach that reduces IT complexity by leveraging the efficient pooling of on-demand, self-managed virtual infrastructure, consumed as a service. Cloud computing is central to that better strategy delivering IT as a Service, enabling IT to be consumed when and how it best serves the goals of the business.

Come to the VMware Forum to learn how VMware, the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, and our partners are building on virtualization to deliver cloud infrastructure and management solutions that significantly reduce IT complexity, improve security and accelerate how applications are being built, deployed and run.

Over the course of just one day, top speakers from both VMware and its partners will deliver actionable information that will ensure you can get started on optimizing your infrastructure immediately. They will show you what steps to take in building an innovative IT department that adds value and leads the company towards growth and success. on Jun 09 2011
