Castle Walls Won’t Protect Your Public Cloud
Castle Walls Won’t Protect Your Public Cloud

The public cloud is not inherently insecure, yet the news is full of stories on public cloud data breaches. Many organizations fail to secure their public cloud resources because they attempt to apply the same security models that they used in their own data center. Join BMC to learn about the new threat vectors and the best ways you can protect your public cloud resources.

Know More About Your Ceph Cluster with ELK Stack
Know More About Your Ceph Cluster with ELK Stack

Ceph generates quite a few logs which you can use to transform into alerts and do proper analysis of the data. If you tune things right you just might catch a problem before it occurs. Maybe you did have a problem already and you want to analyze it so that it doesn't happen again. We will explore how to enable GELF logging in Ceph and utilizing that with the ELK Stack. Another use we can tie into the ELK stack is the Object storage (RGW). With the use of elasic search we can now search our metadata and sort through important information being stored as objects. This metadata can also be customized with your own fields in RGW. I'll demonstrate live some analysis of a running Ceph cluster with both the logging and RGW metadata search abilities.

UniModal IT for Financial Services
UniModal IT for Financial Services

Back in 2014 Gartner came up with the term “Bi-Modal” – with Mode 1 referring to the legacy systems or the System of Records, which was seen more as “keeping the lights on” mode, much to do with stability, whereas Mode 2 referred to the System of Innovation or the System of Differentiation with the need to deal with speed, innovation, and agility.
While there is varied opinion around the very notion of Bi-modal IT, this term has been sold eloquently to C-Suite and for the last 3-4 years CIO’s have been grappling with - “how to deal with 2 speed IT”- essentially how to transform while keeping the light on.
This talk essentially will provide the audience with the insight of "how to move to a Single Speed or Unimodal IT, where they can think of achieving IT Agility not only in the System of Engagement but also in the System of Records. Using DevOps as the underlying lever this talk will elaborate on how to gain speed and velocity without comprising on stability and resiliency across the application portfolio. It will explain how to stand up an end to end integrated DevOps pipeline not only on the distributed technologies (java, .net, node) but also on the legacy side of the house including Mainframe, iseries, and AS400. It will further introduce some of the best practices which the enterprise as a whole needs to adopt to graduate to a Unimodal IT.

The Hybrid Cloud Chess Match
The Hybrid Cloud Chess Match

As enterprise workloads proliferate, the dynamic nature of hybrid cloud deployments make the management of both cyber threats and compliance a significant challenge.According to RightScale, on average, companies are using nearly five different cloud environments at a time. Just over one-half are deploying a hybrid cloud strategy, as opposed to only one of five which are committed to a multiple public cloud environment and one of ten which are deploying a multiple private cloud strategy.

In this talk, Caveonix CEO and co-founder, Kaus Phaltankar will address how enterprises must manage their risk posture given this new state of complex hybrid cloud environments, regardless of where workloads reside.

To win in chess, you must stay at least one step ahead of your opponent by anticipating what you have that’s valuable and then developing strategies to keep it “safe.” Workload protection functions very much in the same manner, only at a far greater scale.

Hybrid cloud workloads are highly volatile and have a multitude of potential configuration issues, and potential vulnerabilities due to their installed software versions and patches. They may also have dynamic inter-dependencies and exposure to other application workloads.

In multi-cloud environments, each individual cloud may be based on different technology implementations that result in inconsistent security and policy frameworks. This makes the management of cybersecurity and compliance requirements across the hybrid cloud increasingly complex.

Kaus will address how to protect these workloads in a hybrid cloud environment. Attendees will learn why enterprises need to have a consistent security solution that understands what is being deployed, where it is deployed, what has changed, how they may be subject to the latest threats, how to deploy consistent security policies, and how to proactively mitigate these risks.

Get Behind Your OpenStack and Transform Your Adoption
Get Behind Your OpenStack and Transform Your Adoption

When it comes to OpenStack adoption you might need to think of some more ways in which you can successfully adopt it in your organization. As I have been operating OpenStack for several years there have been some key objectives which will help increase your adoption.

I'll go over a few of these objectives from workload migration including P2V,V2V,C2C,H2H to Workload transformation. I will talk about the process, requirements, tools, and leave you with all you need to press forward with greater OpenStack adoption.

I will provide a demonstration of some of the tools in action so you can see how you can successfully inspect a workload, prepare it, and build it for running on OpenStack all in an automated fashion with little to few steps required. The goal is to leave you with the confidence that this has been done before and you can accomplish it too.

Large Affordable Server Memory for Public and Private Cloud
Large Affordable Server Memory for Public and Private Cloud

DRAM pricing remains the highest component cost in server economy. Even in public cloud, large memory instances cost in multiples more than smaller-memory systems. Further, DRAM scale is quite limited, to the 6TB range in on-premise deployments and even lower in cloud, which makes some workload impossible to run.

ScaleMP's MemoryONE is solving these problems with Software-defined Memory leveraging affordable NVM as system memory, transparently. Using MemoryONE, you can significantly reduce your cost by expanding memory beyond specification limits - to reduce the total number of servers for your application, or by replacing majority of the DRAM expense with NVM and software-defined Memory. MemoryONE is a drop-in replacement, with no change to the rest of the hardware and software stack, and the performance of MemoryONE is near-DRAM as shown by many benchmarks for cloud applications.

In this technical presentation, we will walk through the basics of Software-defined Memory, how it is implemented in MemoryONE, and also do a hands-on demo.
