Too often agencies have rushed into cloud computing by adopting a public commercial service that doesn’t maximize existing investments or offer the customization around security, compliance, and performance that they require. Consequently, they end up with siloed infrastructures that hinder information sharing and reduce cost-effectiveness. But there is an alternative: the hybrid cloud. Hybrid strategies enable agencies to seamlessly manage applications and data across multiple cloud and on-premise platforms, delivering the freedom to tailor computing environments to unique mission needs. Attend this webcast to learn how to leverage the power of hybrid to make the most of your existing infrastructure while pursuing FEDRamp-compliant cloud solutions.

As federal agencies continue to increase their investments in private and hybrid clouds, the cost and complexity of their environments are increasing as well. But there is a better way. A new generation of cloud software makes it possible to provide common cloud services for compute, network and storage while supporting multiple hypervisors and multi-vendor platforms. This approach enables self-service and bill-back enabling services based IT by allowing line IT managers to deploy systems in minutes with the push of a button. Additionally, it provides ongoing service lifecycle management and the flexible platform to automate assets that most organizations are already using.

From the beginning of the cloud computing trend, agencies have wrestled with which approach to take: A public cloud, in which their applications and data are managed by a commercial cloud provider, or a private cloud, in which they reside on an internal system. As it turns out, it often is not a clear-cut answer. Any given agency is likely to have some applications and data that might be appropriate for a commercial cloud service, while others clearly belong on a private cloud. That is where the hybrid cloud comes in. The hybrid cloud provides agencies with the flexibility and manageability they need to manage a mixed cloud environment. In this webcast, Todd Myers, Lead Global Compute Architect at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, will share insights and lessons learned in hybrid cloud from this ground-breaking project.

Agency infrastructures are under increasing pressure, as mobility, cloud and other trends ratchet up the complexity of IT operations. To keep pace – and to plan for the future – a growing number of agencies are looking to software-defined networking. SDN provides a simple, agile, adaptive network which can deploy applications in minutes rather than months, while delivering significantly lower operational costs.

Government employees increasingly find that they cannot work in a vacuum. Instead, they must work with other employees in their agency – or employees in other agencies – to support essential government services. Without a doubt, when it comes to collaboration, the cloud is the underlying platform of choice.

Under increasing budget pressures, federal agencies must find ways to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of their data center operations. Consolidating centers and equipment is a good first step, but it is not enough. To achieve the kind of savings they need, agencies must take a new approach to IT management. That approach begins with virtualization. In this webcast, you will learn how to leverage the full capabilities of virtualization by adopting a converged infrastructure that combines the compute (server) tier and the storage tier into a single system.
