Ops, AI did it again
Shiri Hochhauser, Cloud Solutions Architect for ISV’s & startups, Microsoft

AIOps is the next logical evolution of using data to understand how the business runs. If you provide cloud services to your end users you probably realized by now that real customers don’t care if you have 4 9's or 5 9's SLA if your e-commerce app happened to crush on black friday (but hey, it was <8 hours annually!). Given the fast growth of the cloud in the industry, increasing scalability requirements and complexity of the cloud systems, it is not possible to maintain top notch customer experience through traditional operations work. We need to provide intelligence and automation for operations and developers and use it to maintain availability and reliability for our users. We believe many of these data-driven decisions and actions need to be executed automatically as an integral part of our cloud services or our DevOps processes. Streamlining the path from data to decisions to actions involves identifying patterns in the data, reasoning, and making predictions based on historical data, then recommending or even taking actions based on the insights derived from all that underlying data. I will give a taste of our internal MSFT ongoing journey to adopt and develop AIOps strategy and will review some solutions that are already in use and supporting Azure behind the scenes. The goal is to automate system management to reduce human intervention. As a result, this helps to reduce operational costs, improve system efficiency, and increase customer satisfaction. These solutions have already contributed significantly to our platform availability improvements, especially for IaaS. AIOps solutions contributed in several ways including protecting customers’ workload from host failures through hardware failure prediction and proactive actions like live migration and pre-provisioning VMs to shorten VM creation time.

5 Key Pieces you are missing when dealing with Data Lifecycle Management in AWS
Elizabeth Lewis, Support Engineer, N2WS

DATA + LIFECYCLE + MANAGEMENT --> What do these words mean when they are used together? Data is now more valuable than oil, many say. Our Data Lifecycle Management session clears up the confusion and vague understanding about a concept that has entered almost every company's lexicon in 2020 as enterprises are increasingly faced with the challenges of working remotely, compliance concerns, the exponential scaling of data and the storage costs associated. Developing a comprehensive plan and strategy for data lifecycle management is an extremely overwhelming challenge. We will aim to provide best practices and main issues to think about as you begin to familiarize yourself and develop a comprehensive plan: Learn:
• What Data Lifecycle Management means in the AWS cloud and why it will be crucial in the coming year in terms of data protection
• How to use Data Lifecycle Management to enjoy higher performance, lower storage costs and high availability
• How to avoid the five most common mistakes so your Data Lifecycle Management (or lack thereof) does not lead to catastrophic data loss

11:05 am - 11:35 am
Best Practices In Implementing Container Image Promotion Pipelines
Baruch Sadogursky, Head of Developer Advocacy, JFrog

Surprisingly, implementing a secure, robust and fast promotion pipelines for container images is not as easy as it might sound. Automating dependency resolution (base images), implementing multiple registries for different maturity stages and making sure that we actually run in production containers from the images we intended can be tricky. In this talk, we will compare different approaches, compile a wish-list of features and create a pipeline that checks all the boxes using free and open-source tools.

12:05 am - 12:35 pm
The Ten Commandments of Cost Optimization
Brianna Vay, Product Manager, CloudCheckr

Now is the time to get your cloud costs in check. Join CloudCheckr's Brianna Vay as she covers the 10 commandments of cost management and learn what you can do TODAY to take control of your costs.

12:35 pm - 13:05 pm
When legacy enterprise test automation meets the cloud
Mekka Williams, Principal Engineer, NetApp

When we decided to extend our robust, heavily integrated, automated test environment to the cloud the approach we took at NetApp was straight forward: to operate as if we would on-premise, with cloud serving as just another platform. Cloud is unique however, with capabilities that can be overlooked and opportunities missed if you treat cloud compute the same as on-premise. In this session, we’ll talk about lessons learned from this cloud migration and what we’re doing today to optimize our cloud environments for efficiency, availability and cost.
