Maximizing cloud efficiency

For most enterprises, the goals of digital transformation mean delivering new business and customer value more quickly, and at a very large scale. The cloud is an inevitable part of this transformation.

The promises of the cloud are simple enough: on-demand, pay for what you use, and limitless capacity. But, as cloud use grows, so do concerns around rising costs and how businesses can ensure they maximize value. Gartner estimates that each year, about 20% of every organization’s total cloud costs are underutilized or attributed to inefficiencies due to limited visibility, difficulty in enforcing policies, and tracking of cloud resources.

With the right practices, tools, and workflows, businesses can take control of their cloud expenditure and unlock the fastest path to value with cloud.

Join us at the Maximizing Cloud Efficiency Virtual Roadshow and hear from experts at HashiCorp, AWS, Cisco, and Datadog on how to optimize your cloud usage in the multi-cloud era.

Controlling Cloud Costs with Terraform | December 9, 2021, 8 am PDT

Terraform provides cloud infrastructure automation with infrastructure as code for provisioning, compliance, and management of any cloud infrastructure. This allows organizations to codify their desired use of infrastructure in the form of modules and then enforce best practices for how that infrastructure is provisioned and de-provisioned through the use of policies.

Cloud Cost Optimization: A Primer | December 9, 2021, 9 am PDT

In traditional IT and on-prem computing, the true costs of each operation can be difficult to ascertain. In the cloud however, everything is a line item—and while cloud spend is a real thing, a lot of organisations aren’t great at controlling it.

In this talk, Daniel from Datadog will introduce the idea of shifting-left on cloud spend, and how engineers can become an important part of the product and business-level conversations at their organisation.

The Journey to Hybrid Cloud with Cisco ACI and Terraform | December 9, 2021, 10 am PDT

In this new world of hybrid cloud, Cloud Operations and Network Operations are collaborating to build infrastructure supporting cloud-native, distributed, disaster recovery, and as-a-service applications. For the Network Operations team, a common challenge is the lack of parity between traditional network and cloud network forwarding concepts and policy-models leading to complexity, error-prone manual deployments, and configuration drift.

In this session, we’ll explore the factors creating these inefficiencies and how to optimize them by unifying the policy-model with Cisco ACI while standardizing configurations using Infrastructure as Code and Hashicorp’s Terraform. Join us on an exploration of how Infrastructure as Code with Cisco ACI and Hashicorp Terraform can accelerate the enterprise journey to hybrid cloud in a DevOps environment.

Balancing Agility and Governance with AWS | December 9, 2021, 11 am PDT

Business and tech leaders often have to balance between agility and governance when operating in the cloud. On one hand you want faster access to the latest AWS innovation, accelerate your time to market and deliver new business. On other side, you want to operate securely with cloud governance that meets your business requirements, but also capable to keep up with the pace of your innovation.

Learn about how HashiCorp Terraform can help you automate cloud governance in AWS Control Tower and access the latest AWS features and services with AWS Cloud Control API.
