TNKCLD-2006: New Best Practices for Future-ready Hybrid and Multicloud Network Strategies
Held on Monday, June 10, 03:30 PM - 04:00 PM
Paul Terrill, Director, Sales Operations, North America, Men & Mice
Chances are your enterprise or large organization is well into, or about to implement its cloud strategy. Further, you’re likely capitalizing on a number of cloud services across multiple cloud platforms. This is your chance to avoid the pitfalls that come from deploying an inflexible architecture that would limit the inherently flexible cloud-native features that exist across these services. This session will explore new best practices and the advantages to adapting hybrid network strategies to take advantage of service-native features in all IP infrastructure solutions, whether on-premise, cloud or multicloud. The session will discuss some of the common pain points in adapting hybrid and multicloud network strategies, such as the potential loss of access control assignments, lost time and staff resources during migration processes and compatibility hurdles between multiple services (and how to overcome them).
What's changed with Men & Mice since our last Cisco Live?
Men & Mice continued to release the features and services for DNS, DHCP and IPAM that many of the world's largest enterprise, government, education and research organizations use to ensure uptime, network resilience and efficiency.
- We grew our marketshare by offering future-focused software overlay solutions for managers of networks in transition (hybrid/multicloud).
- We expedited implementation of agile network strategies and cloud adoption by eliminating migration hurdles for customers.
- We released Men & Mice Suite v9.2.
- We introduced new DNS Workflow and advanced Reporting modules.
- We grew our Partner team to better service the Resellers, VARS and MSPs our customers trust.
