October 4, 2016 WI-VMUG Agenda
The industry has been approaching security with an outdated foundational model. Too much focus has been placed on securing the data center perimeter, leaving the inside of the data center relatively unguarded. In this session we will explore the concept of micro-segmentation what it is paramount in maintaining and enhancing your security posture and preventing breaches. This method wraps security controls around much smaller groups of resources – often down to a small group of resources or individual virtual machines. The inherent security and automation capabilities of the NSX platform makes micro-segmentation operationally feasible in the enterprise data center for the first time. If you’re wondering how to get started we’ll also show you what you need to know and how easy it is to get started in a greenfield or brownfield environment.
Methodologies, tools, and new skill sets are required to operate in a Hybrid Cloud world. This session, hosted by Eric Shanks, Senior Solutions Architect at AHEAD, will explain how AHEAD views cloud management, automation, orchestration, and configuration management as part of a DevOps environment. Additionally, Eric will teach us some of the new skill sets being sought after by companies in the cloud era.
We will be at the Falling Water Bar inside Madison Marriott West starting at 6pm until they shut down for the night.
You are welcome to join us even if you won’t be able to make the UserCon on Tuesday.
If you have not yet registered for the UserCon, you can find more details and a link for registration here. Registration is open until 10pm Monday night. If you miss pre-registration, you can still register Tuesday onsite.
We are looking forward to seeing you Monday at vBeers and Tuesday at our 7th Annual WI-VMUG UserCon!
