Risk Management When Migrating into a Public Cloud Provider
Risk Management When Migrating into a Public Cloud Provider

As more and more companies embrace the Cloud, many are restricted by pre-cloud policies and requirements; especially when dealing with sensitive data such as PCI, PHI, SPI/PII etc. This makes it hard or not cost effective to enable the migration to the Cloud. With the challenges of a dynamic competition, many are forced to adapt to the Cloud and end up spending excessive operational dollars or compromising on critical components and limiting their effectiveness in leveraging native Cloud services. In this talk we will walk through some of the patterns to consider when moving to the Cloud specifically from a compliance and regulatory requirements perspective. The agenda will cover topics such as:

• Building a Business Case
• Classifying the requirements (Business, Customer, Industry, Data Sovereignty)
• Lift and Ship vs building for the Cloud
• Baking in a Time Factor for setting expectations
• Managing Security, Usability and Cost
• Building re-usable Architecture patterns
• Lessons learnt from the constantly evolving landscape of AWS
• Thoughts on meeting Compliance requirements and passing an Audit

Improve SD-WAN Application Performance in Three Simple Steps
Improve SD-WAN Application Performance in Three Simple Steps

Yesterday, applications resided in the data center, while users resided in an office and enterprises relied on carriers for their WAN transport architecture. With this legacy approach, applications resided in centralized data centers with MPLS networks. Today, IT is moving to the cloud and users are mobile with the public internet being an increasingly critical component of the enterprise WAN and application performance. However, as applications move to the cloud, enterprises are struggling with increased application performance issues.

Enter the cloud-ready WAN architecture to better leverage SD-WAN. This shift in architecture from the enterprise premises-based data center to communications hubs help hybrid enterprises span the legacy and cloud environments with SD-WAN.

Because SD-WAN is just a technology, it cannot deliver the application performance users need. So to deliver the best application performance, SD-WAN needs to be combined with optimized network routes, communications/applications hubs (racks of switching equipment and or application services deployed in carrier-neutral data centers) and internet peering. But where do you start? Mark Casey, Founder and CEO of Apcela will discuss three simple steps to enable enterprises to get the most out of their SD-WAN technology.

Not Your Mother’s Cloud: Best Practices for Enterprise Hybrid Cloud
Not Your Mother’s Cloud: Best Practices for Enterprise Hybrid Cloud

To enable their developers, ensure SLAs and increase IT efficiency, Enterprise IT is moving towards a unified, centralized approach for managing their hybrid infrastructure. As if the journey to the cloud - private and public - was not difficult enough, the need to support modern technologies such as Containers and Serverless applications further complicates matters. This talk covers key patterns and lessons learned from large organizations for architecting your hybrid cloud in a way that:

Supports self-service, “public cloud” experience for your developers that’s consistent across any infrastructure.

Gives Ops peace of mind with automated management of DR, scaling, provisioning, deployments, etc.

Goes beyond VMs, to future-proof your solution to support Containers, Serverless, and what’s coming next

Improves CAPEX and OPEX across the board, and gets you to a deployable, scalable solution without having to spend years re-architecturing or developing complex integrations.

Why the Cloud is Perfect for Data Protection
Why the Cloud is Perfect for Data Protection

While more companies are now leveraging the cloud to increase their level of data protection and management, there are still many wondering “why?”

The answer: the cloud actually brings substantial advancements to the data protection and management table that simply aren’t possible without it. The easiest advantage to envision? Unlimited scalability. If a data protection tool is properly designed, the capacity should automatically expand to meet any customer’s needs. The second advantage: the cloud is the simplest way to centralize the storage of all secondary data sources while also providing unlimited compute that can be used to gain additional insight and business value from that data. Finally, the ability to do automated Disaster Recovery (DR) without maintaining a DR facility is unquestionably a major value of the cloud, and simply isn’t possible otherwise. Join W. Curtis Preston, AKA Mr. Backup, as he explains the benefits of cloud-based data protection and management, how to decide if a cloud-based solution is right for you, and best practices when evaluating data management vendors.

The Role of Fast Data in Continuous Hybrid Cloud
The Role of Fast Data in Continuous Hybrid Cloud

In Hybrid Cloud scenarios you are combining services from multiple clouds, or from a cloud with on-premise or colocated services.

The conversation about hybrid-cloud is often related to applications, virtual machines, micro-services and how these things are scaled or moved between clouds or on-premise and cloud. However, a bigger consideration is the data.Almost all hybrid-cloud use-cases require movement of data in addition to movement and scalability of services. Spinning up additional service instances in a cloud, to rapidly and elastically scale, is useless if these services can’t access the data they need.

In this presentation we will consider, through real-world use-cases and examples, how to implement cloud migrations, cloud bursting, and cloud analytics, and how continuous fast data feeds are required to achieve them.

The Hard, and Not So Obvious, Challenges with Building, Maintaining and Operating a Global Edge Computing Network
The Hard, and Not So Obvious, Challenges with Building, Maintaining and Operating a Global Edge Computing Network

Creating a network of edges is a much harder problem than it appears. It is more complicated than merely standing one or two servers in a few (hundred) far-flung data centers and installing an open source stack in each node.

That’s a start but there is far more to it than that. This session will cover just some of the hard and not-so-obvious things you'll need to do to build out a scalable application delivery platform at the edge, including:

How do you securely deploy an application image, (e.g. a container) to every edge in your network and run them as needed?

How do you do this several times a day if the application developer needs to apply fixes, add enhancements, etc.?

How do you ensure that your application is running in a location close to your end users, without amassing a massive infrastructure bill?

How do you remotely manage a large number of compute clusters, assuming each edge is some container-specific environment?

How do you implement network and resource isolation so no one workload impacts another?
How do you make sure everything works in concert, on a global basis?

Multi-Cloud Migration Provisioning-as-a-Service
Multi-Cloud Migration Provisioning-as-a-Service

Public clouds are being widely adopted by organizations of varying sizes. However, lately the public cloud space has gotten increasingly crowded with large number of players. Among them, few public cloud providers stand out and have a dominant market share like AWS, Azure and GCP.
These service providers offer a large variety of services which keeps growing over the period. And as a result, if an organization uses bunch of services from these providers, managing them could become a cumbersome task after they achieve scale. To get rid of vendor locking and utilize the best services out of available from cloud service provides multi-cloud is getting top option to migration on cloud for enterprises.

An enterprise running with large legacy systems would like to move towards latest technologies and modernization with vendor agnostic, provision of using best services, faster time-to-market, cost optimization and above all easy to operate in cost efficient manner.

What can also become tedious is the provisioning of multi-cloud resources. Data lake, Analytics, AI, Machine learning, serverless / micro-services architecture wherein various interfaces for modern web, mobile applications, voice interfaces etc. As a result, once the application architecture is ready, provisioning can take a lot of time and can be error prone. Also, once the resources are being provisioned, integrating them with business applications for seamless continuous integration and deployment, is another challenge.

In order to alleviate some of the challenges listed above, Multi-Cloud Migration Provisioning-as-a-Service is an offering that focuses on simplifying the Enterprises migration to cloud.

Designing a Highly Secured, Hybrid, Multi-Cloud Infrastructure for an Enterprise -- a Case Study
Designing a Highly Secured, Hybrid, Multi-Cloud Infrastructure for an Enterprise -- a Case Study

For many large enterprises and government agencies, establishing a cloud infrastructure consisting of multiple cloud service providers (CSPs) is a necessity to provide alternative services, avoid vendor lock-in, benefit from competing prices, and mitigate potential risks. These large enterprise and government agencies also require hybrid cloud infrastructure to meet controls when their data centers connect to the public clouds for identity federation, security monitoring, cloud management, and on-prem to cloud system communication. Implementing comprehensive security controls for moderate to high security categorization, therefore, obtaining Authorization to Operate (ATO) for moderate to high security impact systems, is another necessity for the enterprises and agencies to deploy their mission critical systems to the cloud.How do you put all these requirements together, and design a highly secured, hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure for an enterprise with satisfactory security, usability, stability, manageability and performance quality attributes? In this presentation, we will work through a case study to build an enterprise-level multi-cloud infrastructure in AWS and Azure. Specifically, we will present:

•Multi-cloud adoption strategy
•Enterprise cloud account management
•High level hybrid multi-cloud architecture
•Multi VPC (AWS) or vNet (Azure) network design
•On-premises to Cloud network design
•High availability, backup and recovery
•Security-in-depth architecture

Identity federation, multi-factor authentication to cloud portal and VM console
Centralized perimeter and zone security design
Centralized logging, auditing design
Centralized SIEM design
Anti-virus, intrusion detection, vulnerability management

•Cloud operation: patching and upgrading strategy
•Single-pane-of-glass multi-cloud management
•End-to-end infrastructure as code to automate the entire cloud and on-premises service provisioning

At the end, we will also present a technology decision tree used to facilitate the process for selecting appropriate on-premises and cloud technologies based on security, viability, total cost of ownership (TCO), and efficiency. We will also discuss and demonstrate a cloud center of excellence (CoE) framework and initiative to improve the maturity of cloud adoption processes.
