Project Description

The Hybrid Infrastructure Journey

What happens when you need to support 100,000 remote users while simultaneously digitally transforming your business? You have to both innovate and keep the lights on. After you’ve solved the remote access challenge, how do you practically manage both your public cloud and private infrastructure environments? Is the right control plan for hybrid-infrastructure Kubernetes, VMware Cloud Foundation, or some other solution? What’s the difficulty level of these motions? Who can you turn to? The CTOAHI is the story of that journey told via teaming with Intel and other leading enterprise IT vendors.

Phase 1:
Extending to the Public Cloud

What happens when a worldwide pandemic results in businesses needing more IT infrastructure than available on the market? We look to the public Cloud. The CTO Advisor team takes you on the journey of expanding to the public Cloud.

Phase 1 Project Media

Cloud Bursting No Longer a Myth

Is Cloud Bursting no longer a myth? Keith Townsend shares Intel Cloud Bursting customer success stories with the NewStack developer-focused audience.

Google Cloud Partnership

How does Intel partner with the major cloud providers? Keith interviews Wade Holmes, the Global Solutions Leader for Google Cloud VMware Service.

Oracle Sponsored Study on VMware Cloud

The team expands the CTO Advisor Hybrid Infrastructure into 3 of the major cloud providers. So how does VMware Cloud Foundation help Intel customers keep a consistent operating model across public clouds?

Putting It All Together

What did the CTO Advisor team take away from Phase 1 as we extended our infrastructure to the public Cloud and learned the art of the possible?

Phase 2:
Hybrid-Infrastructure Management

We’re now steady-state operating a hybrid infrastructure. So how do we manage our day-to-day infrastructure in the public cloud and private data center?

Phase 2 Project Media

Intel and Multicloud

Josh Hilliker makes a case for Intel everywhere. How is Intel enable cloud providers and end-users via metadata? How do you get more out of your infrastructure using analytics?

Listen to the Podcast.

Watch the episode.

Twitter Scale

How does Twitter use Intel Smart Nics to get the most out of Twitter’s Intel Scalable Xeon-based infrastructure? With the help of Twitter Engineers, we see the future of the CTOA Hybrid Infrastructure. The Twitter use case also provides a roadmap for cloud providers. We hope you enjoy this highly produced content.

VxRail

The Dell, VMware, and Intel teams gave us the keys to a complete VxRail private cloud infrastructure. VxRail is one of the full implementations of VMware Cloud Foundation. We provide an end-to-end look at the platform with demos and interviews with the various teams.

Phase 3:
Planning the Data Center Modernization

We turn our attention back to the public Cloud. How are Intel and the Intel partners enabling us to improve our hybrid infrastructure operations?

Phase 3 Project Media

Hyper-Scale Partnerships

There’s plenty of conversation about the competition between CPU manufacturers in the public Cloud. Keith sits down virtually with Oracle Cloud and Intel executives to talk about Intel’s unity position among the hyperscalers.

SGX Security

With the software supply chain becoming a strong attack vector, where does Intel SGX potentially help make the CTOA Hybrid Infrastructure secure? Keith shares in a blog post discussing the topic.

Migration to the Public Cloud

How is Intel partnering with cloud providers to ease the transition as we modernize our workloads? Keith caught up with Google Cloud’s Wade Holmes in Austin, TX, during the CTO Advisor Road Trip. Unfortunately, we can’t promise large amounts of brisket weren’t eaten.
