The Gravitational Attraction of Cloud: Big Data is Big, But Cloud is Massive
The Gravitational Attraction of Cloud: Big Data is Big, But Cloud is Massive

When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments. Organizations would spin up and manage large Hadoop clusters, where they would funnel exabytes or petabytes of unstructured data.However, over the last few years the economics of maintaining this enormous infrastructure compared with the elastic scalability of viable cloud options has changed this equation.

The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data environments, and cloud data warehouses like Snowflake, Redshift, BigQuery and Azure SQL DW, have given the cloud its own gravity - pulling data from existing environments.

In this presentation we will discuss this transition, describe the challenges and solutions for creating the data flows necessary to move to cloud analytics, and provide real-world use-cases and benefits obtained through adopting cloud big data environments.

Data Protection for the Cloud Era
Data Protection for the Cloud Era 
Wanted: Unified Data Protection and Management 

Your business is fueled by data but unlocking its value can be difficult with multiple repositories and dissimilar management tools. This results in gaps in protection that could expose your business to data loss or regulatory challenges. Come to this session and learn how Druva streamlines data protection so you can:

  • Unlock data’s value faster with a single repository across diverse data sets     
  • Recover workloads faster and reduce storage consumption with global deduplication
  • Retain data for longer time frames cost efficiently with auto-tiering of storage
  • Relax with integrated security and encryption for data at rest and in motion
  • Fast time to value with instances that auto deploy, manage and require zero maintenance

Establishing a Culture of Continuous Improvement in Your Service Organization
Establishing a Culture of Continuous Improvement in Your Service Organization

Even if your IT and support staff are well versed in agility and cloud technologies, it can be an uphill battle to establish a DevOps style culture — one where continuous improvement of both products and service delivery is expected and respected and all departments work together throughout a client or service engagement. As a service-oriented provider of cloud and data center technology, Green House Data sought to create more of a culture of innovation and continuous improvement, from our helpdesk on to our product development and cloud service teams. Learn how the Chief Executive team helped guide managers and staff towards this goal with metrics to measure progress, staff hiring or realignment, and new technologies and certifications.

The Edge Needs a New Data Architecture
The Edge Needs a New Data Architecture

Bold predictions are being made about the disruptive new applications that edge computing will unleash on enterprises and consumers. However, edge computing unlike cloud computing. is a distributed data problem. Creating enterprise grade systems that can deliver geo distributed database capabilities with useful consistency guarantees is extremely challenging and conventional approaches fail at doing these at global scales.For edge computing to become a reality, we need geo-distributed databases that can scale across hundreds of locations worldwide yet act in concert to provide a single coherent multi master database. This in turn requires us to design a system that works on the internet with its unpredictable network topology, use some form of time keeping that is not lossy, and avoid centralized forms of consensus yet still arrive at some shared version of truth in real time.

In this presentation I discuss the needs and design of such a serverless edge platform for stateful, data intensive, realtime applications and web services that need to run in a distributed manner, at the edge, closer to humans (end users), their things (devices) than the cloud can.

Data Security for Every Cloud Migration Project
Data Security for Every Cloud Migration Project

Any cloud migration leads to various hardware and infrastructure equipment needing to be decommissioned. How you approach this necessity is a critical, yet often overlooked, component of your cloud migration strategy. When decommissioning legacy on-prem assets, proper IT asset disposition (ITAD) practices allow you to protect your sensitive data and obtain the highest possible ROI. Don’t end up with data security breaches and don’t lose money on your IT hardware investments. Learn industry best practices and what to look for when approaching ITAD projects during cloud migrations, and in your everyday business model. You can address data security concerns and add decommissioned assets to your TCO calculator.
