Network Resilience Boot Camp
Business cannot be interrupted, even for a few seconds. Employees, users, and customers will not tolerate even small hiccups in service. As such, network resilience, which is the ability of a network or infrastructure to maintain service levels of critical applications, services, and processes, is essential for an enterprise’s success.
This event will explore why network resilience is so critical today. It will also look at the technologies and tools that can help ensure resiliency, the associated staffing and cost issues, and other factors.
The devil is certainly in the details, but more often the devil is a detail you never would have predicted. The weakest link in a complex architecture might be one you know about but more likely, it was hiding in plain sight.
In this virtual event, we’ll highlight adaptive systems needed in modern hybrid architectures, such as Netflix’s resiliency tools like its Chaos Monkey, which unleashes failures intentionally to test and track the many unanticipated consequences of those failures.
Traditional business continuity and recovery methods and strategies of old are not sufficient for modern business. The move to more distributed enterprises, the adoption of cloud, and digital transformation all add complexity and make resiliency more challenging to achieve. The underlying infrastructure upon which all applications and services are delivered must be robust.
This keynote will discuss why businesses today must re-examine their network resiliency strategies and implement new approaches.
Network resilience often requires the use of new tools and technologies. Many enterprises may not have the internal expertise to address modern needs. This session will discuss the types of technology that can help improve network resilience and the skills organizations need to use those technologies.
We’ll say it again – redundancy. From PoPs to physical components to staffing, redundancy is often conflated as the end of resiliency. But even all the tripling and quadrupling in the world isn’t going to save your bacon when components shut down and create cascading failures. That’s where things get sticky, and where redundancy alone won’t save you.
The best practices and the use of new technologies that enhance and enable network resiliency also help improve security. This session will examine the security implications of implementing a network resiliency improvement strategy.
