Failproof Disaster Recovery: No Longer Just a Pipe Dream
Failproof Disaster Recovery: No Longer Just a Pipe Dream

“Failproof” is not a term often associated with disaster recovery (DR). Too often because of limited budgets and competing priorities, teams either don’t have robust DR orchestration or have a fragile implementation that relies on manually documented notes and worksheets. Learn how Sensiba San Filippo was able to failproof their DR and make recoveries instant, cost effective and easy.

Using Disaster Recovery as the Foundation to Digital Transformation
Using Disaster Recovery as the Foundation to Digital Transformation

Digital Transformation takes a combination of business and technical processes, best practices, and tools. Key to the success of any digital transformation initiative is disaster recovery tools that foster business continuity. If IT agility, flexibility, and continuous improvement are to be primary goals of your transformation, the underlying platforms can not allow interruptions due to downtime or lack of interoperability. The right DR platform can enable multi-cloud migrations, inter-cloud mobility, and 100% uptime. Experimentation is fostered as journaled backups can easily be rewound and redeployed to any RPO. Your platforms are essentially future proofed as the ability to migrate to and between clouds becomes simple, allowing your transformation initiatives to grow organically to whichever cloud platforms deliver the best features and reliability.

Compliance by Design: How to Build in the Public Clouds
Compliance by Design: How to Build in the Public Clouds

As organizations migrate to the public cloud to meet business requirements, security and compliance are an afterthought. This causes massive pains when audit time comes around. What organizations need is a new approach. In this presentation, we will focus on the best practices for implementation, whether it be open source or commercial.Attendees will come away with:

- A tactical strategy to implement whatever tooling is chosen.

- An understanding of Compliance-by-Design through real-world examples (yes we’ve done this and it works!)

- Why Compliance-by-Design matters and the impact it can have on the bottom line.

Singtel Session - Enabling the Digitalization of Your Enterprise in Asia Pacific
Enabling the Digitalization of Your Enterprise in Asia Pacific 

Asia is the most diverse continent on the planet where each country and culture differ greatly from the next. It is one of the most sought after consumer and B2B markets for global business. Countries like Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam, Taiwan, and Korea present a huge opportunity for businesses across industries due to their continuing urbanization and economic growth. Whether you run a large corporation with vast resources or a small company looking to create a footprint, understanding the business landscape and digitalization capabilities is crucial to your success.

We will discuss three success factors:
  • Navigating the business landscape
  • Intelligent and agile network for your digital transformation
  • Network visibility and actionable insights

The Era of Digital Transformation
In the Era of Digital Transformation, It’s Time for Enterprise Networking to Embrace Cloud Architectures

We are in the midst of the era of Digital Transformation. Cloud computing has become synonymous with computing. We believe that cloud networking will, within the next 24 months, become the new vernacular for networking. The same paradigm shift that has revolutionized computing will transform networking.Over time, monolithic architecture moved into client/server architectures, which then evolved into service-oriented architectures, which has in turn given way to the now ubiquitous microservices/container model. This microservices architecture is the mainstay of cloud and public cloud computing, as well as serverless/utility computing models. The benefits to cloud software architectures are many, including horizontal scale, distributed services and databases, fault tolerance and containerization and programming language independence to name a few. 
It is these attributes that we see are for the most part in the large, global SaaS applications such as Amazon’s e-commerce website, Netflix’s streaming service, Facebook and Twitter’s social networks. The same capabilities – with the same global, highly available, and horizontal scale – can be applied to enterprise networking.

As we know, the heart of networking is routing. Interestingly, routing algorithms have maintained the exact same architecture for 30 years. Border Gateway Protocol (BGP4), the routing protocol for the Internet, has been in use since 1994, and has been virtually untouched. These protocols are designed for resiliency and autonomous operation. Even so, there are challenges with the architecture and protocols – most significant is that of Internet performance. Issues with scaling and convergence plague BGP operations, and there have been proposals to replace it altogether. But that has proven impossible due to the massive global installed base. However, the fastest solution and next best option is to augment BGP.

As the industry ramps up digital transformation with AI, ML, IoT and other new technologies, the Internet needs to keep up with the demand and be able to scale, automate and perform.
Building atop BGP4’s flat, decentralized architecture, new routing protocols are leveraging cloud software architectures to develop fast, scalable, and performance-driven routing protocols, embracing both the centralized and the distributed nature of cloud computing.

In this session, we’ll look at the augmentation of BGP using performance feedback loops and centralized orchestration in order to deliver consistent high throughput, mitigate packet loss, and reduce latency.

How Cloud and AI Accelerate Digital Transformation in ERP Environments
How Cloud and AI Accelerate Digital Transformation in ERP Environments

Cloud computing, big data and AI provide a new impetus and urgency to traditional enterprises to become digitally transformed businesses as they face disruption from new players who leverage technology to foster new business models. Traditionally, enterprises focused on digitizing processes and transactions. The incumbents can also be disruptors by leveraging AI for data-driven insights and innovate at scale on Cloud platform. They need to uncover the power of ERP/SAP using Cloud, AI and Big data to accelerate their journey to become digital businesses.

Leveragng the Cloud as a Smart Infrastructure
Leveragng the Cloud as a Smart Infrastructure

Enterprises worldwide are looking for ways to better leverage the cloud as a smarter infrastructure approach. While most have found success in pushing server-based apps to the, one workload has continually eluded architects around the globe in their attempt to leverage the cloud – unstructured data. It’s been surprisingly challenging to find a way of using the cloud to replace the millions of on-premise file servers that users pound on daily. With the growing footprint of unstructured data and the escalating cost of ownership for on-prem storage infrastructure (backup, availability, capacity, and audit/compliance management) and the associated risk of these platforms (data loss, breach, compliance issues), finding ways to leverage the cloud for this has become a holy grail for infrastructure teams.

A number of technologies have evolved into cloud-friendly formats that can now address this workload, allowing dozens or even hundreds of distributed file servers to be consolidated into a single, cloud-resident footprint. These include the latest in distributed network file systems, storage-optimized network protocols, intelligent caching approaches, and global locking schemes that - when used together - can deliver savings of up to 70% on the storage ownership equation and a far more secure and manageable environment.

The objective of this session is to provide the audience with a fundamental understanding of the technologies involved in a successful cloud storage consolidation project today, the basic implementation steps involved, and an overview of a documented methodology that outlines how to determine the ROI from such a project.

A Lesson in Instant Cloud Recovery with Golden State Lumber
A Lesson in Instant Cloud Recovery with Golden State Lumber

Learn how Golden State Lumber was able to make complexity, high TCO, and long recovery times relics of the past. They’re now able to quickly and easily establish replication policies and restore data at high granularity to reduce cloud egress costs. With Cloud DVX, data transfers to cloud are forever incremental across all sites, and restores from cloud are low-cost with granularity as small as guest-files, virtual disks, virtual machines or a set of virtual machine.
