For service providers, the prospect of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is based on greater efficiencies and opportunities for business innovation. Fundamentally, virtualization is about scaling operations and capital investments more efficiently to agilely deliver network services. Multiple system operators (MSOs) are beginning to realize the power of cloud scalability and new operating efficiencies through the virtualization of their network functions. The initial promise of virtual network functions (VNFs) has been lacking. Replicating and porting code from a physical appliance to a virtual machine without addressing the underlying software architecture resulted in a false start for what was supposed to be a networking revolution. Lessons have been learned, and the lift and shift of existing code to be wrapped in virtual machines has proven to be a clunky and inefficient use of compute power and resources. It tends to miss the business objective of virtualization, which is to achieve greater CapEx and OpEx efficiencies.

NSX-V to NSX-T Migration - NSX-V Load Balancer (HA-Proxy) Migration to AVI

April 13, 2022 | 8:30 PM PDT

This presentation and demo will include the migration of NSX-V Native Load Balancer (HA-Proxy) to AVI. The migration will include the migration of Load Balancer configurations including Virtual Servers, Server Pool, Pool Members, Application Profiles, and Services (Protocol/Port). cITopus, NSX Automation and Management tool, will be used for this demonstration. cITopus AVI Deployment Utility automatically deploys and configures AVI Controllers, and Service engines. cITopus also configures the Service Engines with NSX-T routers to build One-Armed load balancer topology. cITopus also migrates NSX-V load balancer configurations to AVI.

NSX-V to NSX-T Migration - In-Place Network Virtualization

March 02, 2022 | 8:30 PM EST

This presentation and demo include NSX-V to NSX-T Migration of Network Virtualization using cITopus In-Place Migration Utility. cITopus, NSX-V to NSX-T Migration tool, allows migration of 1 to many vCenter Clusters from NSX-V to NSX-T. cITopus automatically removes the NSX-V VIBs, installs NSX-T VIBs, creates NSX-T specific networks and micro-segmentation and migrates the VMs from NSX-V to NSX-T. cITopus also configures temporary IPSETs in NSX-V and groups in NSX-T to allow east west firewall rules to function normally for traffic between vms managed by NSX-V and NSX-T. In-Place migrations from NSX-V to NSX-T can be performed live without experiencing any virtual machine outages for some use cases. SPJ Solutions will share real-world example of how the live migration was performed without any VM outage for 1000s of VMs migrated from NSX-V to NSX-T using cITopus In-Place Migration Utility.

Cybersecurity: How to Level-Up Your MSP Business

January 27, 2022 | 2:00 PM EST

As economies attempt to recover amidst rising threats from new COVID-19 variants, managed service providers encounter increased pressure to deliver greater value, take on more responsibilities, and improve cybersecurity/ compliance capabilities. It’s a welcome mix of challenges with enormous opportunities due to a business environment shaped by the new normal. Before you start ramping up expansions in the cybersecurity side of your business, join Ryan Smith, Armor’s Product Evangelist, to devise a well-thought-out plan by focusing on three key areas: What should I look for in a cybersecurity solution? There are many vendors and technologies. How do I know which is best for my portfolio? We know technology. However, cybersecurity isn’t our expertise. What kind of support should we look for?
