A Multi-tenant Multi-cluster Kubernetes Datapocalypse is Coming

The need for rapid deployment of scalable clusters is creating an opportunity for container solutions such as Kubernetes. But what are the implications of multiple Kubernetes clusters in a broad deployment? What happens if a cluster goes down? What’s the impact on business resiliency? Managing and securing multiple clusters is becoming a key topic and area of debate. Multi-cluster Kubernetes that provides robustness & resilience is rapidly moving from “best practice” to a “must have”.

Storage Scalability in Hybrid Cloud and Multicloud Environments

As data growth in enterprises continues to sky rocket, datacenter cloud scalability whether on premises, in hybrid cloud or in multicloud deployments is key for businesses. So, what are enterprise IT organizations supposed to do, given that 'run anything anywhere' is becoming more important than ever? Customers are finding that hybrid cloud storage solutions better meet their IT and business growth needs, so they can rapidly scale their IT infrastructure and cover a wider array of services.

The Influence of IoT on Data Strategy

More and more we are seeing compute and inference move to the edge. This is driven by the growth in capability to not only generate data from sensors, devices and by people operating in the field, but also by the interaction between those devices. This new source of data and information brings with it unique challenges to the way we store and transmit data as well as the way we need to curate it. In this webcast we will look at:

  • New patterns generated by the explosion of the Internet of Things
  • How IoT is impacting storage and data strategies
  • Security and privacy issues and considerations
  • How to think about the lifecycle of our information in this new environment

The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Storage and IT

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have been having quite the impact on most industries in the last couple of years, but what about our own IT industry? In this webcast find out how the rise of machine learning has created a new type of demand on IT operations teams as well as how those same teams can utilize new insights and capabilities driven by machine learning. We will explore:

  • The demand on infrastructure
  • Storage and data pipelines
  • The growing field of IT operations leveraging AI (aka AIOps)

Cloud Standards: What They Are, Why You Should Care

Since the initial publication of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) definition of cloud computing in NIST SP 800-145 in 2011, international standards development organizations (SDOs) have sought to refine and expand the cloud computing landscape. This webinar will identify key published and draft cloud standards, discuss their interdependencies, and highlight their importance as well as identify potential future work. In addition, related technologies such as virtualization, federation, and fog/edge computing will be addressed. Lastly, the relevance of the standards will be explored to help organizations understands ways these documents can be exploited.

Kubernetes in the Cloud - Part Three: Almost Everything You Need to Know about Stateful Workloads (August 2019)

Kubernetes is great for running stateless workloads, like web servers. It’ll run health checks, restart containers when they crash, and do all sorts of other wonderful things. So, what about stateful workloads?

This webcast will take a look at when it’s appropriate to run a stateful workload in cluster, or out. We’ll discuss the best options for running a workload like a database on the cloud, or in the cluster, and what’s needed to set that up. We cover:

  • Secrets management
  • Running a database on a VM and connecting it to Kubernetes as a service
  • Running a database in Kubernetes using a `stateful set`
  • Running a database in Kubernetes using an Operator
  • Running a database on a cloud managed service
