Evergreen//One: Embracing the Usership Economy

In this session, we’ll discuss the trending across all markets away from ownership, and towards ‘Usership’, and look at some of the practical considerations for organisations who have already started on the journey, and those who are still considering their strategy. There is more to it than just how something is paid for, there are architecture, operational, commercial, and security considerations. And perhaps most critically, the human element of transformation to a usership / subscription orientated model. Organisations who get the balance right can enjoy a surge in operational efficiency, productivity, and corporate risk mitigation. However, there are some common pitfalls that we can help to avoid. Let’s explore.

Speakers:

  • Abraham Barnes
  • Simon Malek-Jahanian
2:00pm-2:30pm

An Effective Cloud Strategy and the Role of Data

As organisations want to extend the benefits of the public cloud in terms of agility and time-to-market to the hybrid cloud world, having an effective cloud strategy and operating model on-premises is more important than ever.

In this session we will discuss what makes a good cloud-operating strategy, the role that data plays in this strategy, how to think about data storage and management when building cloud offerings (Infrastructure, Container, Database as-a-Service...), what innovators are doing, as well as how to empower developers to be more effective and self-sufficient through data.

Speakers:

  • Fred Lherault, Field CTO EMEA
12:00pm - 12:30pm

Customer Voice: How the Scottish Government is Building a True Multi-cloud with Kubernetes

Join Neill Smith, Head of IT Infrastructure, Scottish Government and Joe Gardiner, Head of Cloud Native Architecture, Pure Storage, to discuss how the Scottish Government is leading the way with their true multi-cloud strategy and how Portworx® by Pure Storage is enabling the portability & flexibility of using any cloud or Kubernetes platform.

Speakers:

  • Neill Smith, Head of Infrastructure, Scottish Government
  • Joe Gardiner, Director, Cloud Native Architecture - EMEA
2:00pm - 2:30pm

Simplifying Database Management with Containers

Join Ron as he shares how many organisations are embracing, and simplifying database management with Containerization and Kubernetes. In this session, we’ll cover both MS SQL and Oracle and look at:

  • Container Fundamentals with Docker
  • Common Container Scenarios
  • Orchestration with Kubernetes

Speakers:

  • Ron Ekins, Principal Solutions Architect
2:30pm - 3:00pm

Don't Let Your Data Fall Prey to Ransomware Attacks, Disasters, and More with K8s Data Protection

Kubernetes data protection is about more than just backup and restore. Beyond just having a solution that was built to understand Kubernetes volume and infrastructure, you also need a solution that can handle zero RPO disaster recovery for mission-critical apps and ransomware protection for ever-growing cybersecurity threats. Join us for this session to learn more about the key elements of Kubernetes data protection like backup and restore, disaster recovery, ransomware protection, and cross-cloud mobility so you can better protect your most valuable asset—your data.

Speakers:

  • Anthony Hodson, Cloud Architect Portworx
3:30pm - 4:00pm

Eliminate Outages and Protect your Apps on Amazon EKS with Portworx

Amazon EKS is a fully managed Kubernetes that allows you to offload the management of your Kubernetes clusters to AWS. It doesn’t have all the features that are needed to run stateful containerised applications in production at scale. Join us for this session, and we will talk about how Portworx complements Amazon EKS and provides a rich layer of data management features like cross-region migrations, cross-availability zone replication, backup, and disaster recovery, and security and compliance management to allow organisations to run applications in the public cloud with ease.

Speakers:

  • Rajiv Thakkar, Director, Product Marketing
11:30am – 12:00pm

Evergreen//One: De-Risking Transformation

Let's explore how organisations can take advantage of Evergreen//One in ways that are not possible with other methods of consuming technology - other StaaS offerings, leasing, or purchasing. In this session, we’ll look at typical transformation scenarios that organisations find themselves in and what they look like using Evergreen//One vs other models. Here are two we see all the time – the first one is Consolidating Data Centres, the second is Migration to Public Cloud.

Speakers:

  • Abraham Barnes, Director of Subscription Sales
12:00pm - 12:30pm

Ensuring Resiliency for Mission Critical Applications as you Expand into Hybrid/ Hyperscaler Environments

This session showcases how organisations can better protect their most critical data sets across regions. Using the combination of Pure Cloud Block Store and Azure Site Recovery provides seamless data mobility and enterprise-grade replication capabilities in the cloud.

Speakers:

  • Byron Wilkinson - Principal Consultant, Kyndryl
  • Adam Mazouz, Solution Engineer
2:00pm - 2:30pm

Defend Your Data, Refuse the Ransom

Ransomware attacks are on the rise. Cyber-criminals have invested in creating new, stealthier, and virulent attacks that can be a nightmare for any organisation. Every day we observe that companies have been compromised and forced to pay a ransom. In many cases, payment doesn’t result in the return of the data or quick resumption of services. In this session, Cohesity will provide insights into threat defense strategies for modern backup and recovery to defend against cyberattacks.

Speakers:

  • Benjamin Preston, Cohesity Senior Systems Engineer
2:30pm - 3:00pm

Veeam & Pure Storage Snapshot Integration and Orchestration

The Pure Storage plugin for Veeam Backup & Replication is the most downloaded plugin with thousands of Veeam & Pure customers taking advantage of it for things like backup from storage snapshot and snapshot orchestration. Customers have experienced the following benefits:

  • Reduced impact of backup on production
  • Improved Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs)
  • Ability to run secondary use cases (e.g. dev/test, business analytics) with production performance

Come to this session to learn more about the current integration capabilities, and the deeper integration that is planned.

Speakers:

  • Paul Parkin, Senior Systems Engineer, Veeam
3:30pm - 4:00pm
