1851 - Choosing Virtualization Strategies for Oracle Applications

Michael St-Jean
HP platforms provide stability, performance, and many virtualization options. Many are however reluctant to jump into virtualization with both feet. This informative discussion will present some of the concerns businesses have expressed around different virtualization strategies, and what works for different parts of the business and some scenarios of how organizations may use everything from provisioning strategies with blades servers to Global iCAP in Superdome environments. This discussion will use Oracle applications (EBS, PeopleSoft, JDE, Siebel, etc.) as an example, but many of the ideas presented will be effective across many commercial applications.
1861 - The New HP Insight Software and Next Generation Infrastructure Management with SAP Enterprise Application Services

Denise Eckstein
In this session, we'll demonstrate how the latest HP Insight software technology can be used to optimize the utilization and simplify the management of server resources in an SAP application environment. The solutions described in this session have been tested in an SAP application service environment that was built to closely model real-world SAP installations. The design and implementation of this environment will be described. The HP Insight Software extends the unified infrastructure management of SIM to the virtual world, extending VSE from Integrity to ProLiant, and building on some of the unique HP BladeSystem capabilities. The software simplifies infrastructure change with unprecedented mobility of physical and virtual servers on HP BladeSystem, saves administrator time with intuitive management of physical and virtual servers on HP platforms and optimizes utilization through dynamic state-of-the-art capacity planning with power management.

1966 - Hardware Emulation Technology Overview

Bruce Claremont
Just because something is old does not mean it is not still useful. IT departments must often accommodate old hardware and the applications they host because the applications remain critical to business infrastructure. Unfortunately, old hardware becomes unreliable and direct replacement can range from difficult to impossible. Hardware emulation offers the means to support legacy applications on new, modern hardware. This session will discuss hardware emulation technologies and take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of deploying emulation solutions.

1200 - DR double the cost or triple the value

Kee Gan
This presentation discuss in making DR systems generate value rather than view as an added cost from a HP NonStop perspective. Topics discuss includes the traditional DR techniques such as backup/restore, effective backups for online databases, the importance of saving transactions rather than data, recovery speed and the concept of business continuity. Disaster recovery management is not simply doubling the cost as in a traditional hot site setup. Application systems can be split across multiple production systems and each backing each other. Online application lends itself to be split. NonStop systems are easily split and can be viewed as a single entity with added DR capability. Discussion will include techniques, costs and effort in implementing value added DR. For example, moving from a single NSK node into two boxes, split different apps among the split systems, introduce transaction replication between systems, network transaction concepts. How much is a company paying in insurance cost must be included in DR. Reviewing operational procedures, such as whether tape backup is really necessary? Plan to have near zero planned downtime and what is the value in each hour of planned downtime. Switch over capability in unplanned downtime and what is the cost in each hour of unplanned downtime. Scheduling batch runs in either machine. The cost of overrunning batch runs. DR systems allow production test capabilities and what is the cost of production application failures. What price if business continuity is not available? Having confidence in the �backup' system. Discussion will include a typical HP NonStop site with mixed multiple online applications, with high and low transaction rates and batch runs to complement applications.

1476 - "Don't Miss Anything!" - Best Practices and Tips for Creating Comprehensive and Accurate Technical Recovery Procedures for Disaster Recovery Plans

Richard Light
From an IT staff perspective, the technical recovery procedures are the focus of an effective disaster recovery and business continuity plan. Writing procedures to recover your servers, networks, applications, and databases seems straightforward in high-level discussions. In practice, writing these procedures is often neither quick nor straightforward.
This session will explore most of the data points and assets needed for a successful recovery. We will also discuss methods to uncover the items that are commonly forgotten and ways to capture the data for those items. Participants will understand the elements of a complete and accurate technical recovery procedure and the tools and techniques to fully assess the data operations environment when planning technical recovery procedures.

The HP Reference Architectures for Oracle Grid are HP recommended integrations of Oracle technology with the HP Adaptive Infrastructure. In this session we'll review the latest advances to the reference architectures with integration of new next-generation HP Insight software that raises infrastructure change management to a whole new level of intuitive simplicity. We'll show the newest logical server provisioning tools from HP as well as the use of capacity advisor and other functionality to bring the full functionality of Oracle grid to life. With these tools you can automate expansion of a production Oracle Real Application Cluster Database or middle tier on the fly, and make server outage and recovery a zero downtime event. We'll provide a live (remote) demonstration of this functionality and more and show you what it takes to build this kind of "Adaptive Infrastructure" with off the shelf components today
1492 - Open Source solutions for High Availability and Disaster Recovery

Swayam Prakasha
Availability is a measurement of the usability of a server for its intended purpose during those times when it is expected to be used. Some servers in production have very little usage or are used infrequently; therefore, availability may not be an issue. However, in an enterprise-class datacenter, many of the servers experience almost continuous and sometimes heavy usage, therefore, availability is extremely important. High Availability is a goal in such environments and is the ability of a server or a combination of servers to achieve as close to 100% usability as possible. Disaster Recovery defines strictly-enforced process and procedures that ensure critical applications and data are recoverable following a major failure, which include loss of a data center, server, or storage. These failures can cause major disruptions to the effective operation of a business or government agency and requires quick recovery.
In this paper, we will focus on some open source solutions in HA and DR spaces. We focus our attention on both RHEL and SLES environments. We will cover various HA solutions such as heartbeat, mon (on SLES and they also work with RHEL) and rgmanager and cman (that are available on RHEL environment). The load balancing will be covered in another section and there we will focus on LVS and Piranha. In another section, we will study the details of network based backup and recovery solutions such as Amanda and Bacula. Another section deals with Zamanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) for MySQL database backup and recovery. We will have a look at possible enhancements in these open source solutions. In the last section, we will try to understand high availability DR cluster.

1517 - Advanced availability monitoring

Sandy Johnson
Monitoring the availability of business-critical applications should deliver more than just simple up/down alerting and reporting. In an ideal world, you need the capability to group applications and the various system components they rely on, into business-centric services - and then to monitor these services from end to end, in real time and over time against service level targets.
And, when single components within any of these services fail, you'll want to be notified immediately and to understand the true impact of this failure. Does this failure mean the whole service is down or simply impaired. Is this failure impacting other components or can they recover from it?
This presentation by Sandy Johnson from Integrated Research, developers of specialist systems management software, will examine what advanced availability monitoring means in today's complex distributed environments. Sandy Johnson will explore real life business-critical scenarios and provide examples of how systems management software can address key availability monitoring challenges.

1617 - Creating Test Systems Using SAP TDMS and HP Snapshots

Marcel Duvekot
Making copies of the SAP production system for either offline usage in test and training environments or to refresh the development and quality assurance system remains complex and time-consuming. The problems include handling the large size of data in the production system, limiting the impact of the copy process on production and protecting the access and content of the data copy. SAP Test Data Migration Server (TDMS) abstracts a consistent sub set of data from the production server and creates a target server with this data. This session overviews SAP TDMS and explains how HP StorageWorks space-efficient Snapshot will help to reduce the downtime required on the production system. Learn how the HP software solution automates the entire process and integrates into the SAP TDMS software.

1620_SWD_DR_and_Cluster_solutions_-_CLX_and_3DC_-_Duvekot.ppt.pdf 1622 - System Monitoring With Nagios

Michael Lamont
As businesses continue to increase their online presence, a crashed or inaccessible system can mean disaster. The sooner a downed system or service is detected, the sooner it can be fixed and downtime can be minimized. Monitoring software packages, such as Nagios, periodically check systems and services to make sure they're available. If a system or service is unavailable, the monitoring software notifies one or more system administrators.
Nagios is a free, open source system monitoring package that has become the de facto choice of many system administrators. It provides a web monitoring interface as well as immediate email and pager notifications of systems and services that are down. This session covers how to install and configure Nagios on a Linux/UNIX system. Several sample configurations for simple and complex sites will be examined in detail.
1662 - Simulation and Testing of Long Distance DR/DT Configurations

1708 - How to Prevent Critical Data Loss After Catastrophic System Failure

Chris Bross
The risk of a catastrophic data loss in an IT environment is on the rise. Natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods and electrical storms are some of the unexpected events that can suspend daily operations. But even more mundane occurrences, such as drive failure, human error and cyber-related crime or corruption can also threaten business continuity and a company's long-term survival. Can the business you support survive a major disruption? Worries that a firm would not survive long without access to its data motivate most businesses to invest in back up systems and disaster recovery plans. In addition to preparing for disaster, today's IT pro must also take precautionary measures to prevent data loss should back-up measures fail or be incomplete. The IT pro is the first responder when disaster strikes. The initial diagnosis and handling of a system failure at the time of its crash is critical and can severely effect the odds of a successful recovery-or result in absolute data loss. The primary goal of an IT professional is to reconnect companies with their vital data as quickly as possible after a disaster occurs. To meet the goals of business continuity, the IT professional must be able to differentiate various drive failure symptoms and know which recovery attempts they can safely pursue themselves. A senior data recovery engineer will present the technical content for this session, illustrating best practices on how to recover lost data from encrypted files, solid state devices and crashed hard drives drive safely. The consequences of improper data recovery procedures will be demonstrated and individuals will be provided with best practices to help them avoid further media damage or permanent data loss after system failure. We will discuss how data loss occurs on the most commonly used data storage devices when the device is compromised by extreme weather, physical damage, corrosion, electrical surges, fire, and more. Appropriate action steps that have been researched and proven by experienced data recovery engineers will be recommended for each type of drive failure and data loss scenario.

1726 - Creating a World-Class Disaster Tolerant IT Infrastructure

Bob Sauers
Creating a world-class IT infrastructure which supports both business goals of reducing costs and improving service levels requires an understanding of today's consolidation and virtualization technologies. This session discusses application criticality, defining appropriate service levels and using technologies to provide the highest levels of availability and disaster tolerance. A new disaster tolerant solution for stacked Oracle RAC environments, MetroRAC, will be introduced. Learn how MetroRAC provides HA, disaster tolerance, database stacking and static load balancing for Oracle RAC and how HP-IT is using these technologies as part of the Data Center Consolidation program.
1726_1726-sauers-worldclassit.pdf 1727 - HP-IT: Creating a World-class Disaster Tolerant IT Infrastructure

Bob Sauers
IT organizations are under pressure to reduce costs and improve service levels. To create a world-class IT infrastructure which accomplishes these diverse goals, it is necessary to understand availability requirements in the context of today's consolidation and virtualization technologies and needs. It is also important to analyze the organization's applications and assign realistic service level objectives according to each application's assigned criticality. High availability and disaster tolerance become more important as large-scale consolidation and virtualization is deployed. This seminar will introduce concepts about application criticality, defining appropriate service levels, and using technologies to provide the highest levels of availability and disaster tolerance to the most critical applications. A new disaster tolerant solution for stacked Oracle RAC environments, MetroRAC, will be introduced. These concepts will be summarized in the context of HP's Data Center Consolidation program. With the drive for more extensive Disaster Tolerant architectures, two tradeoffs have faced enterprises in the past: (1) building a Disaster Tolerant architecture for Oracle RAC databases that will automatically failover to a recovery site following a site outage; and (2) often different sites needed to be networked on different IP subnets. This session describes how the new MetroRAC product and the new cross-subnet Serviceguard feature address these issues. MetroRAC extends HP Metrocluster to provide a Site-Aware Disaster Tolerant architecture for Oracle 10g R2 RAC Databases. Many RAC databases can be running concurrently at both sites, but a given database can be active only on the nodes within a single site, due to constraints of physical, array-based replication. Thus, all nodes are actively handling transactions, but each site handles transactions to different databases. All of the data, both database and non-database data, is replicated from one site to the other so that each site can act as a disaster recovery site for the other. A disaster tolerant failover can occur within 5-10 minutes. This presentation will discuss the various aspects - benefits, usage, limitations, solution architecture examples and case studies - of cross-subnet support in Serviceguard. Application limitations that occur because of the different subnets will be discussed, especially in the context of SAP and NFS.
1730 - HP Serviceguard and the New HPVM 3.5 Release of HP Integrity Virtual Machines

Examples of actual customer implementations using Serviceguard with HPVM to provide both high availability and disaster tolerance for their applications will also be presented and a demonstration will follow.
1730_Gray_02Jun08.ppt.pdf 1752 - High Availability - Is it sufficient for Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity?

Swayam Prakasha
Business and Information Technology executives are increasingly accountable for business continuity planning because of a confluence of forces - regulatory mandates, rising awareness of best practices and high profile disasters that have drawn attention to risk. While the intent of high availability is similar to continuous availability and disaster recovery is closely related to business continuity, there are important differences in their scope, methodologies and outcomes. This paper will help in understanding what they truly mean in terms of your business' IT planning and execution model. This paper will examine how availability management, disaster recovery and business continuity support one another and offer insights to help you succeed at all of them.
The next section deals with 2 topics - �higher stakes of IT availability�, and �availability by the numbers�. In another section, we will see the effect of virtualization on HA. The final section deals with managing availability from end to end with an example.

A highly-available Ignite-UX server is critical for any HP-UX environment which uses network recovery archives for disaster recovery. This presentation will provide guidelines and examples for configuring your Ignite-UX servers to help insure they will be available when most needed -- to provide recovery services to client systems which have failed because of hardware or software failure, or human error. It will also discuss the relative roles of recovery archives and system backup software.
Specifically, this presentation will provide guidelines for establishing network and disk capacity requirements, and discuss best practices for maintaining Ignite-UX software. The impact of the number of clients served by the server, as well as the size and number of archives retained will be discussed, and will guide the discussion of planning the Ignite-UX server configuration. Use of ServiceGuard to protect the Ignite server will also be described.
2057 - Business Continuity in a Virtualized Environment

David Claypool
Can your business afford a disruption of IT services? Thousands of data centers experience significant services interruptions every year, at the cost of lost business revenue and lost data-or worse. Disasters and unplanned downtime get the big headlines, but planned downtime for hardware maintenance and backups is the cause of the majority of service downtime. Learn how HP can help you virtualize your data center and give you the means to eliminate planned downtime, deliver high availability, and be better prepared for disaster recovery.
2080 - Disaster Recovery - How Planning for a One Time Event can Provide Benefits Every Day

Rick Carney
The session will take attendees through the changes in various technologies and costs that are resulting in many organizations bringing DR capabilities in-house. On one end of the extreme is the old fashioned "DR by subscription model", which is less popular today. Today's organizations are either moving towards the opposite end of that extreme: bringing the full DR capability "in-house", via another company-owned location, or they are somewhere in the middle where they may continue to use subscription-types of providers for offsite vaulting, and some limited receovery capability. The session will also discuss how it is not just about a one time event that in some cases may never happen, but rather what types of operational improvements can be implemented in a production data center that provide every day benefits as well as making it easier to recover in the event of a disaster. Some of these improvements may include consolidated storage/storage networking; backup software selection, and multi-purposing of server equipment, and change management.

3240 - Disaster Recovery: Steps to a Solid Plan and Real World Case Studies

John Ewicka
It's wise to create a disaster recovery plan, rehearse it, and update it often. A plan can be the difference between bouncing back quickly and not bouncing back at all and will have two areas of focus: a) data and equipment; and b) employees and operations. A disaster recovery plan is part of a larger business continuity strategy. Disaster recovery is reactive, responding to an emergency that has already occurred. Business continuity is the proactive way you put your business in the best position to react quickly to a disaster. Learn from CDW Solution Engineers the steps to a plan that works, including proven case studies and important questions you should ask yourself in order to determine your needs.

1703 - Improving SharePoint Application Performance with HP Proliant Servers and F5 Networks BIG-IP

Rebecca Johnson
Organizations are using Microsoft� Office SharePoint� Server 2007 to deploy intelligent portals that provide connectivity between people, processes, customers, and intellectual capital. Specific examples include business process solutions such as team collaboration, data records management, document management and publishing, and dynamic score-carding. The growth rate is increasing, with adoption of Office SharePoint Server 2007 which provides increased functionality at somewhat higher resource costs (server CPU, memory, network, etc.) than SharePoint 2003. Many organizations who are moving to the new version are also taking the opportunity to consolidate their distributed deployments and SharePoint farms into fewer centralized data centers. This approach has many proven cost benefits, but requires these new data centers be able to provide consistent, predictable, and adequate service to users who are now located more remotely from the SharePoint farms across a corporate Wide Area Network (WAN). In distributed farm deployments, server capacity (usually the Web front-end (WFE) servers) was likely the limiting resource to available farm capacity, with local users being connected over the corporate Local Area Network (LAN) at backbone bandwidths of 100Mbit/sec or even 1Gbit/sec. By moving the farms to a centralized location, potential limits to capacity and performance based on available WAN bandwidth (for example, a T3 connection at 44Mbit/sec, or even a T1 connection at 1536Kbit/sec) can be created. Further, the introduction of latency (delay) due mainly to connection distance, and some small percentage of dropped packets will have an impact on performance.
Come understand how adding intelligence to the network and optimization of the application can dramatically improve application performance. HP and F5 will discuss the test set up, architecture and performance test drivers with results.

Daniel Beal
Efforts to automate IT have been around for decades. But is true automation for change and configuration management happening in the data center of today? Is there such a thing as a "lights-out" data center? "Do more with less!" is the constant refrain. Constant change and increasingly complex technology makes automation extremely challenging. When 80% of most IT budgets go to just keeping things running, and only 20% goes towards new projects, you can quickly see how IT Automation is not just a "nice-to-have"�it is necessary for survival! This presentation takes you through a brief history of the topic, along with several success stories in the industry today. Overcoming hurdles, as well as practical tips on improving your IT Automation strategy will be discussed.
1285 - ITSM vs. BSM - What's the difference?

Daniel Beal
IT Service Management (ITSM) and Business Service Management (BSM). These acronyms have been bandied about the IT industry for the past several years. But what do they really mean? Are they different disciplines, or two sides of the same coin? Defining these terms and applying them to the needs of your business will be the goal of this presentation. How to strike a balance between developing your IT processes and improving the enabling technology is the focus. As with any on-going project, creating a blueprint or roadmap is essential. Improving the quality of the IT services delivered to the business and reducing the long-term cost of service provisioning will be discussed. Other topics include the use of tools that provide input for incident, problem, configuration, change, and release management, including reporting and monitoring.
1299 - You can't use a tool to solve a process problem!

Rick Nelson
Increasingly there is significant pressure on Chief Information Officers (CIO) and Information Technology (IT) Managers to align with the business. There is industry consensus that the goal is for IT to become viewed as a true implementer of value to the business. This task is a complex one, but significant strides towards delivering better business value can be obtained by focusing efforts on improving IT processes for delivering services. There is also a lot of pressure from the software vendors that claim their tools can automate and deliver process maturity. However, how can a tool automate a process that does not exist? Designing the tool's configuration is nearly impossible without a process that drives it.
The purpose of this presentation is to identify an approach that IT can utilize to develop and implement agreed upon and measurable processes. Through these processes, IT can improve both a level of service that it provides to the business as well as its value proposition to the business. Additionally, tool decisions can be made more effectively and the configuration design can be streamlined.
1382 - Improving Network Capabilities and Saving Money with Sustainable IT Practices

Kevin Klustner
2007 was the year of corporate sustainability awareness. Going into 2008, the word �green� buzzes and corporate social responsibility is now a job description. However, cutting through the hype and implementing environmentally-friendly practices that result in savings to a company's bottom-line without interrupting business-as-usual is still a mystery to many organizations. The difficulty lies in a three-pronged objective: improve network capabilities, reduce costs and become a sustainability hero in today's consciously-minded marketplace.
One of the ways HP has addressed the sustainability challenge is to incorporate SURVEYOR, PC power management software from Verdiem, into their dc7800 series PCs. The new equipment will help cut PC energy waste by 25 percent. If IT managers begin to better understand just how much money and energy is tied up in powering their networked PCs, they can adopt and achieve maximum efficiency with new power management solutions, such as what HP offers through Verdiem. By taking a consultative approach to sustainability, IT managers can also discover how to drive as much of the cost and environmental impact out of the network as possible, ultimately achieving every part of that three-dimensional goal. It is a powerful way for businesses to differentiate themselves as sustainability leaders and for IT to become the main driver/hero in this situation.

1625_v01_Goldstein.pdf 1651 - Fix Access Control Once and For All - And Save Money in the Process

Johnnie Konstantas
You may want to deny it, but your employees have overly permissive access to your sensitive corporate information - an alarming issue that has remained an unspoken truth among IT staff until recently. Luckily, a data governance strategy (and the technologies associated with it) can save your organization from disaster. Ms Johnnie Konstantas will discuss how identifying data use patterns and restricting access to a business need-to-know basis can substantially mitigate the risk of loss and misuse while saving thousands of dollars in its management. The good news: the return on investment (ROI) is proven and the business case for implementing such technology is there.
Ms. Konstantas will pinpoint how organizations can save 50% or more on current expenditures in this area, while meeting the previously unattainable goal of data protection, by implementing comprehensive technology to address all aspects of data governance.
Data governance encompasses the people, processes and technology employed in ensuring proper data use. Participants will be walked through a framework for data governance that can enable enterprises to: Keep pace with data growth and the ever-changing business needs users require for accessing data Define and bridge user-to-data access needs (traditionally a manual process that is difficult to apply and enforce) Statistically decrease the risk of data loss Improve processes for generating data-use audits, data migration and archiving initiatives, as well as domain consolidations
Ms. Konstantas will also examine data governance as a critical IT initiative. Organizations have already invested in the correct infrastructure solutions (i.e., file systems and user directories like Active Directory, LDAP, NIS and NT Domain), but bridging the information in these systems to map the right users to the right data is time consuming and expensive. Additionally, she will identify how this same technology can help in the following scenarios:
Generating data-use audits: savings of up to 69% Conducting data migration and archiving initiatives: up to 43% Domain consolidation: up to 20%
Access control and the ability to generate granular data-use reports have not been an effectively executed IT operation within many of today's organizations. By automating processes that are manual, inefficient and error-prone, ROI can be guaranteed and data access control ensured.

1890 - Enabling virtualization in the datacenter with I/O virtualization architecture

Swayam Prakasha
Virtualization is a key strategy for simplifying deployment of IT resources and maximizing their utilization. The benefits of virtualization are well understood. System administrators are able to capture underutilized resources and re-allocate them to constrained application. Resources can be dynamically allocated and load balanced as the characteristics of traffic and applications change over time. Today, server virtualization is primarily handled through specialized software provided by vendors. It is possible to redesign the I/O architectures to support this virtualization from end to end and this can be achieved with the introduction of hardware based I/O virtualization - commonly referred to as IOV.
The first section of this paper deals with the need for IOV. In another section, we will have a look at the primary value proposition of IOV in terms of performance, reliability, cost, flexibility and isolation. Another section takes a look at the current status of IOV. In the next section, we will explore the various IOV capabilities and the final section focuses on the future of IOV.

High Performance Computing
1142 - Highly Integrated High Performance Business Computing (HPBC)

Swayam Prakasha
The world of super computing has changed in recent years, moving from a scale-up monolithic, expensive architecture to the scale-out clustering of low cost microprocessors, also referred to as High Performance Business Computing (HPBC) clusters. Solving the more challenging computing problems facing organizations today requires far more powerful, yet cost-effective systems. This translates to significantly large clusters. Scaling systems to levels of thousands, even tens of thousands of nodes can be difficult and complex, as it is quite painful to make cluster work correctly and consistently a s it scales. Yet overcoming the challenges of designing highly scalable, high performance clusters is in fact achievable. This paper will focus on how to overcome architectural issues, while reducing or eliminating complexity with a simple, repeatable recipe.

1297 - Agent vs Agentless based Monitoring - The best of both worlds

Davandra Panchal
Agentless monitoring systems are becoming more popular. However, they will not deliver everything required for the monitoring of mission critical applications. Enterprises need to understand the requirements of each solution for operational needs. More and more enterprises are deploying both solutions to have the best of both worlds. This presentation discusses how an organization should tackle which solution is the best fit for their monitoring and performance needs.
Standards for agentless monitoring have not made it a totally feasible solution; many application vendors have not taken up a standard or provided details of information that is easily understood. Vendors are now starting to offer both solutions to customers through operation consoles that allow the management of both agent types. IT Organizations should understand their requirements in order to make the ultimate decision.
1298 - Unraveling the BSM thread - How can BSM really help IT integrate with the business

Davandra Panchal
With the promise of aligning IT with business objectives, BSM (Business Service Management) is fast becoming the fashion for infrastructure and availability management. Many organizations have no way of relating operational technical metrics to meaningful services that is easily understood by the business.
With BSM, IT groups can provide and improve service quality and related performance factors, such as incident closure time. IT organizations will have a system for prioritizing l business services and measuring the effectiveness of service delivery. As a result, effective use of BSM can: help improve any number of IT processes, such as business impact and cost analysis, allowing for the planning of infrastructure needs as appropriate.
This presentation discusses how an organization should approach BSM in digestible chunks and make significant strides to aligning with the business using tools they may already own. More specifically, the presentation will link IT Assessment, Implementing a CMDB, Auto-discovery of applications, Business Process Mapping and ITIL services together.
1463 - A Generic Live Monitoring System of Interactive Media Application Traffic in Large IVR Deployments Using Post-call CDRs

Yu-Lin Liang
The Interactive Voice Response (IVR) application is the major technology that telecom service providers utilize to implement and publish highly interactive media services via the telephone network. A 2006 research (Frost & Sullivan, 2006) found the United States IVR market in 2005 to be $565 million, and projected the size of the market to grow to $1.49 billion by 2012. HP OpenCall Software is well positioned in the market and offers IVR application creation and execution solution to independent software vendors (ISV) and end service providers. The live Call Detail Record (CDR) monitoring system described here aims to provide a view on the application and network traffic going through the IVR systems with a very short delay using Call Detail Record (CDR) data, which traditionally is used only in batch processing mode to produce reports with several hours to several days delay. The data in the CDRs only need to be XML data with no assumptions on its semantics. The first advantage of the proposed solution over existing telecom network management system (NMS) is that the system live information is extracted from CDR data in near real-time. Existing NMS generally rely on other data sources such as SNMP traps or network signaling which do not offer the same level of monitoring relevancy when dealing with IVR applications. It is from the CDR that the service operator is able to extract the most useful data. The second advantage of the proposed solution over existing BSS platforms is that CDR data are innovatively used in live mode. Because the proposed solution is well adapted to large traffic volume, CDR data can be utilized for live monitoring. Traditional BSS platforms such as billing systems process the CDR data in batch and offline mode. In most cases the service operator can only get the reports several days or even weeks later.

2136 - Tips and Tricks for getting the most out of Performance Manager 8.x

Sudhindra Kumar T L
This paper highlights some of the features in Performance Manager 8.x which can be used for effective analysis of System Performance issues. PM can be used for launching context sensitive graphs by passing the appropriate parameters in the URL. For e.g., it is possible to launch the design wizard of PM directly and having a specified node pre-selected in the UI. Then users can directly select the required metrics and generate graphs. This can be used for launching PM from other applications like Operations Manager for Windows as part of operator initiated actions on a message. It is also possible to launch PM with only the graphs in a specified family shown to the user. Graphs can also be drawn directly from any third party application without having to open the PM Homepage. This can be done by passing parameters like graph name, node name and date range in the URL. PM provides URL based interfaces for getting the list of graphs, families and nodes defined in PM in XML format. Customers can use these interfaces to get the metadata from PM, display them in their custom applications and generate the graphs in PM based on user inputs and embed the same in their UI. It is also possible to modify the format of the reports generated using the �ovpmbatch' utility by modifying the file �OVPMReportTemplate.htm'. Users can add their own custom header/footer (e.g., company's logo) or provide links to other applications etc from within the report. The same template will be used while using the �Print' option for a graph from the PM UI. PM also provides an option to preserve the reports generated using �ovpmbatch' utility beyond the nightly maintenance period and still be accessible through the web interface. This paper also explains how to design Top-N graphs (e.g., Top 10 CPU consuming applications) using the PM design wizard. This can be done by manipulating the attributes �Metrics per graph' and �Single/Multiple Graphs' along with the �Metric Display Order' option. Users can also manipulate the �Sortby_Max_Graph_Count' parameter in the file OVPMconfig.ini to control the number of graphs that would be drawn in case of metrics with a large number of instances.

2583_CIULLO.ppt.pdf 2737 - Application of a Service Request Catalog to a Self-Service Support Model

Jan Goode
In the ITSM world, self service is seen as a way to reduce costs and resource effort by the Service Desk while providing the service user with an improved level of service. Many self-service tools offer only a simple text field for the service requestor to enter a description of their issue. In the current HP Outsourcing Services and IT environments, a high level of self service is provided through Call Qualification in the portal. HP Outsourcing Services is migrating to the HP Software ServiceCenter tool providing an integrated self-service portal which includes a basic Self-Service Ticketing (SST) capability.

1665_McLaughlin.ppt.pdf 1692 - Optimised memory allocators for threaded and non-threaded applications

Neelima Ghani
With the number of cores per die increasing, the primary mechanism for scaling applications has shifted to multi-threading. Major ISVs such as Oracle and i2 are well on the way to utilising threads . Libc is a common component for all application software on a UNIX platform. Hence the thread-scalability of libc APIs, especially the memory allocator, is going to be detrimental to the scalability of all applications.
This session would cover 2 new memory allocators that are being introduced on 11iv3 :
a) A lockfree memory allocator with improved performance and scalability in threaded cases . Improved allocator design reduces the need to access global data structures, also these infrequent accesses to global data structures would be made lock-free. No competitor has officially released a productized version of lock free allocator. However IBM research Labs and Sun research have published papers which indicates that they have working prototypes.
b) There has been bad publicity by a third party allocator vendor on the bad cache performance of the HP-UX allocator . We have developed the optimised small block allocator that reduces the need for extra space per block to store metadata, thereby reducing processor cache wastage and hence, improving performance . Protoype has resulted in significant improvement in the SPEC benchmarks

1143 - ITIL V3: Are you ready for the next chapter in service management?

Swayam Prakasha
In business and technology services, the IT Infrastructure Library, or ITIL, is viewed as the most widely accepted approach to IT Service Management (ITSM) in the world.
Certainly IT industry has matured since ITIL V2 was published in the late 1990s. That version put together emphasis on what service management is - rather than how you can best approach it. The last version was also centered on processes for Service Delivery and Service Support. ITIL V3 represents a significant shift in how IT is viewed in the greater business context. With the realization that managing IT requires more than just a set of processes comes an increased focus on managing the service lifestyle and providing value to the business - with an emphasis on how technology can best be leveraged to enhance that value.
One section of this paper focuses on what has changed as far ITIL V3 is concerned. The next section explains the 5 principle stages of the service lifecycle in ITIL V3 - service strategy, service design, service transition, service operation and continuous service improvement. Another section throws light on ITIL V3 myths. And in the last section, we will have a look at why ITIL V3 has gained momentum and its future.

This presentation will provide safety tips and a selection process to manage the migration to the latest version of service desk technology. Focusing on aligning all aspects from the process-centric ITIL V2 framework to the lifecycle model contained in ITIL V3. It will cover some common concerns during the mapping of Service Support and Service Delivery processes to all phases of the lifecycle (Strategy, Design, Transition, Operation, and Continual Service Improvement) focused on what the leading technology in the ITSM arena is currently improving upon.
1291 - Dynamic and Integrated Change Management

Ali Hadizadeh
ITIL defines Change Control as: "The procedure to ensure that all changes are controlled, including the submission, analysis, decision making, approval, implementation and post implementation of the change"
The goal of this exercise is to demonstrate ITIL best practices for integration of ITSM/BSM tools. This guide will show how to implement and configure each of the three tools and integrate them with each other using references pointing to past implementations.
Once the tools have been implemented and integrated; different case scenarios, such as: a) request for change to implement a new Configuration Item (CI); b) request for change to modify an existing CI; c) keep a consistent CMDB and track all changes, will illustrate how each tool participates in the implementation of Change Management procedures. The purpose of this practice is to show how to create a change and track the change through the approval process. Once the change has been approved it then will be ready for implementation. This presentation will also show how to track the change implementation that corresponds to the change request and how to monitor unauthorized changes.

1295_Jay_Long.pdf 1296 - Can BC/DR and ITIL Cohabitate Effectively?

Jay Long
Where is the intersection between traditional Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery (BC/DR) initiatives and ITIL? Are you confused with the terminology between BC/DR and ITIL? The two disciplines have been in existence for quite some time, yet there is little information on how the two should cohabitate. Roles definition is often a point of contention in that BC/DR and ITIL both recommend an Incident Manager be assigned, yet the responsibilities are not the same. Another area of intersect is determining the service criticality and relationships that are used to develop a DR Plan, this effort is also a best practice covered by Service Level and Configuration Management.
This presentation will provide an outline of where BC/DR and ITIL intersect, along with tips on how to ensure the two cohabitate effectively.

1286 - Think beyond the audit

Mark Bower
Companies invest in ITSM tools, consulting services and countless resource hours into preparing their IT department for the inevitable SOX audit. But what happens when the audit is finished? Have you created an IT infrastructure that can pass one examination or prepared it for the future by aligning it to the business and customers?
The essence of the SOX audit is to prove that you do what you say you do. So the audit should be viewed as an opportunity to establish clear, concise policies and processes that are repeatable and demonstrable. The focus of this effort should revolve around what makes sense for your company in regards to culture, organization, the current state and foreseeable future - not what you think the auditors want to see.
This presentation will provide guidance and tips on how to write policy, set controls, prepare documentation and adopt a best practice framework that will provide a foundation for your IT infrastructure and business. And it will help you pass the audit too.
1287 - Let the tool do the work

Mark Bower
Your organization purchased an ITSM tool to manage your Service Management processes. But are you maximizing your investment? Do you still rely on spreadsheets for tracking and metrics? This presentation will provide tips on how to get the most out of your ITSM solution.
When it comes to project management and reporting, many organizations still use labor-intensive methods such as spreadsheets, or writing and maintaining unwieldy scripts. But as an organization grows, it becomes unmanageable and costly. Companies must simplify by utilizing the capabilities of their ITSM tool.
Automatic, process-oriented solutions represent a significant improvement over manual processes. Spending the up-front time and money to configure and develop your ITSM tool will allow your work force to focus on innovating instead of administrating. With automated reporting and resource tracking, you can identify pain points in your infrastructure thus reducing costs, increasing efficiencies and improving accuracy. This presentation provides guidance and tips on how to take full advantage of your ITSM solution.
1289 - Process vs. Workflow Automation

Eric Nelson
What is the difference between automating a process or a workflow? There are a number of software vendors that are reacting to need for automating processes and some everyday tasks in the data center. This presentation will focus on first defining what process and workflow automation mean to the business, providing an explanation of what value each provides, helping to clarify any confusion of the terminology. Followed by providing examples of how ITSM technology providers cause confusion in the industry and some common safety tips to look for when selecting the right solution for the challenge at hand.
1290 - Automating Service Transition

Ali Hadizadeh
Many companies spend endless amount of resources to track and manage incidents that are result of poorly implemented changes or improperly planned or controlled change requests. What if they could spend less time managing incidents and more time managing what matters the most to their business? Incident Management limitation is that it can help to identify a problem, but not its source. To reduce the number of incidents and to improve service availability, proper configuration management along with strict change control process must be implemented. This presentation will discuss how configuration management identifies and documents the functional and physical characteristics of a business service, and controls changes to those characteristics. It will demonstrate how an automated change configuration tool can help identify each business processes, and capture its configuration before and after each change. As well as how to incorporate proper change control process that is integrated with a change configuration tool. Today's business is highly dynamic and in constant transition, this presentation outlines an approach to automate IT service transition in order to gain better control and provide increased business value.
1292 - A Practitioner's View of the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) v3

Martin Likier
There are numerous articles explaining that the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) v3 is really just an extension of the previous library and that the underlying principles and processes have been refined but not really changed. The same articles may have also stated that a primary rationale behind the refresh was that ITIL v2 was heavily process-focused. In contrast, ITIL v3 is centered on a service lifecycle approach to help IT departments focus on providing business value. You may have finished reading those articles and still asked yourself, "What are the key differences between ITIL v2 and v3? And, how does the new version affect my ITIL implementation? Do I need to switch over to v3? How quickly?" This session offers guidance on how to make the decision whether or not to adopt ITIL v3. You will be provided with a detailed view of the key differences between v2 and v3.
1292_ID1292_Likier.pdf 1293 - How to Quick Start a Service Catalog Management Initiative

Martin Likier
A service catalog can provide great business value to an organization by providing a central source of information about the services that IT delivers to the business. This customer facing view of the services ensures that all areas of the business view an accurate and consistent picture of the services. But ITIL V3 saw the need to create a new process called Service Catalog Management that goes beyond the creation of a Service Catalog. This new process describes the best practices around defining the service, production and maintenance of the catalog, interfaces and dependencies between all services and the business - combined with all relationships to the supporting services, shared services, components and CIs necessary to support the service.
This session provides a quick start methodology to help anyone gain immediate traction with Service Catalog Management. Areas of the presentation include tips on interview techniques to ensure you focus on the needs of the business, a list of attributes for developing a successful catalog and a proven strategy for identifying relationships needed to complete a Technical Service Catalog.
1294 - A well designed IT Service Management Organizational Structure

Jay Long
Having the best process and tools is not enough to enable your organization to reap the benefits of ITIL and ITSM, you must also have an organizational structure that supports the processes to ensure success. In many cases, companies do not have a sufficient number of staff to dedicate resources to ITSM roles, and even for the companies that do have the required staffing level, we find that the organizational structure is not aligned to adequately support these roles. This presentation will outline and explore some of the most beneficial ITSM organizational structures that can be implemented in conjunction with current traditional organizations. Specifically, we will discuss ways to fill ITSM roles without adding staff and how to align reporting structures in an ITSM environment by using dotted lines of reporting that won't adversely affect your current structure.
1302 - Moving from Change Control to Change Management

Robert Simmons
Some IT departments are still having difficulty with the effective management of their changes. Change requests are submitted at the last minute; the business puts pressure on IT to implement critical changes without sufficient planning or testing; and failed changes account for as much as 80% of major incidents. To confront these challenges, many organizations implement strict requirements for RFC lead times, testing, approvals, and implementation plans. While these process improvements facilitate better control of changes, perhaps resulting in higher change success rates, they still do not address the necessary planning activities before changes are designed and built.
This presentation will focus on the critical, upfront change planning procedures and steps which are often missing in an organization's Change Management process. It will demonstrate how and why changes should be filtered, categorized, assessed, evaluated, prioritized, and approved before they are designed and built. By implementing these necessary planning activities the organization will move from a Change Control to a Change Management paradigm wherein changes are planned, approved, and scheduled well in advance of their release date. This will not only improve change success rates, but will increase the organization's ability to manage higher volumes and complexity of change with lower risk and impact, ultimately leading to increased customer satisfaction and productivity.
1304 - So you want a Service Catalog�now what?

Robert Simmons
Is your IT organization striving to migrate from a technology-centric cost center to a service-centric, business aligned service provider? Developing a Service Catalog is, perhaps, the single most important first step. It provides a central source of information on the IT services delivered by the service provider organization. This ensures that all areas of the business can view an accurate, consistent picture of the IT services, their details and their status. Unfortunately, getting your organization to buy into the Service Catalog concept and the value that it brings, let alone the challenge of building and implementing the catalog can be daunting tasks. More often than not, the Service Catalog idea dies a quick death, yielding to the daily fire drills that plague the organization.
This presentation provides a proven, iterative approach toward gaining support for, then building and implementing an operational Service Catalog. It also provides a process for managing the Service Catalog to keep it current after it is deployed. Finally, it demonstrates how the Service Catalog provides the basis for defining service level requirements and implementing operational and service level agreements. Armed with this approach, you stand a much better chance at successfully deploying a Service Catalog and setting your organization up for continued service improvement.
1305 - Incident Management - Implementation from an Incident Manager's perspective

Kristy Smith
This presentation focuses on lessons learned and challenges faced by one Incident Manager during a real world ITIL implementation.
Challenges faced include getting buy-in from teammates and users, understanding and implementing the new Incident Management process, and the importance of comprehending the other ITIL processes well enough to be able to effectively support and integrate with them.
Lessons learned center around interfacing with other processes. If an outage occurs and no work around is possible thus requiring root cause analysis and a Request for Change, who owns the analysis - Incident or Problem Management? Also, is it a good idea to separate the duties of the Incident Manager and the Service Desk Manager?
The ease of implementing when expertise is provided, the necessity of well documented process and procedure, as well as communication to, and education of, all ITIL stakeholders will be discussed.
1306 - Change Management - The pitfalls of poor process

Kristy Smith
What are our roles and responsibilities? Who exactly does what when? Where is that documented? If these are the questions facing your Change Manager on a regular basis, then Change Management process and procedure must be examined.
Poor process does not take standard pre-approved changes into account, has no plan for which changes should be reviewed or when they should be reviewed - or simply reviews every change before and after implementation. Poor process also has no room for creating change models/templates in the service desk tool to assist the change coordinator in the creation of repeatable changes and does not clearly define the necessary change management roles or their responsibilities.
This presentation will focus on not only the pitfalls (and high cost) of poor process as it specifically relates to Change Management but will explain how to avoid and/or eliminate them.
1308 - Process Compliance Ignites Innovation

Mike Tainter
Many organizations today face the same pressure of maintaining flexibility and adaptability in order to remain profitable. The reliance on technology has become the norm in most organizations and, in a lot of cases, the majority of business services are provided using technology. The technology age has arrived and our everyday lives depend on that technology to be available. We also expect the services to be improved over time to make our business transactions more efficient and effective. The speed in which improvements are delivered can make the difference between being a leader or a follower. The question is how do IT organizations deliver innovative solutions, while at the same fighting the day-to-day operations nightmare of keeping the services available?
This presentation will discuss current trends, process methodology and how process compliance can lead to innovative business outcomes. Case studies will be used to support the premise that process compliance can lead to productivity gains, resulting in reallocation of resources that can focus on innovation that delivers business value.
1309 - A lesson in Utility and Warranty - Why are my Customers screaming at me?

Mike Tainter
You are preparing for a meeting with the business to discuss service availability and recent user related issues, you have all your reports collected and neatly bound to present to the business leaders. You enter the room and immediately feel the pressure from unhappy customers. Your reports clearly indicate that the infrastructure supporting the service has had its issues; however, each component has been operating at 99.9% availability for the past 12 months. You present your reports, however, the business leaders are still unhappy and unconvinced that you have provided the service they desire. This scenario is a common occurrence in many organizations and what it boils down to is a chasm between technology and the business.
Using definitions from the most recent version of ITIL (v3), there is a lesson to be learned relating to utility (the service is fit for purpose) and warranty (the service is available when the business requires it). This presentation will provide guidance on the service lifecycle approach contained in ITIL v3 wherein best practices can be used to ensure utility and warranty are the main factors to consider when creating a strategy for delivering services to the business.
1310 - Service Provision in a Virtualized Environment

Mike Tainter
Server virtualization and ITIL are two of the more commonly used "buzzphrases" in today's information technology lexicon. But where, how and when do they intersect? Virtualization promises templates for rapidly provisioned servers, decreased physical footprint and decreased impact on other servers, services and applications, as well as streamlined operational processes. ITIL is a framework that increases the overall maturity of your IT organization to enable IT to focus on business outcomes. One aspect of ITIL is ensuring your Service Level Agreements are aligned with the outcomes that the business expects. This session clearly defines connection points between server provisioning within a service catalog, service level agreements and an exact configuration management database. Understand how interdependent services are supported within the server infrastructure and how ITIL and virtualization can coexist.

2424 - Real-time Operational Intelligence for Service Level Virtualizations

Shyam Sarkar
As more of the data centers become virtualized, it will be important to understand service oriented architecture (SOA), SLAs (Service Level Agreements) and to include robust monitoring and metering practices that ensure SLAs are being met. As the resources are virtualized, management areas such as application and service level securities, configuration methods, disaster recovery, failover, and provisioning can be affected. It is critical that IT administrators have management tools that can manage multiple layers of virtual and physical resources in an efficient manner. Operational business intelligence about service level virtualizations, virtualized servers and configuration provides powerful analytics, which correlate change and resulting system behavior, allowing organizations to assure that resources are aligned with results. This alignment lowers IT cost and improves service level by replicating the correct behaviors across the enterprise. Through powerful correlation and optimization techniques, real-time operational business intelligence transforms business processes in a service oriented architecture, operational data and organizational behavior into the actionable business insights necessary for making better, faster, more effective decisions. AyushNet is involved in developing technology for event stream processing and real-time operational business intelligence solutions for any kind of business processes and SOA. Successful implementation of complex event processing, robust easy-to-use techniques for real-time data/metadata extractions, rule/policy applications and dashboard generation will solve the problems of security, continuous compliance and complex dynamic provisioning issues involved in virtualization inside data centers. Identification of the appropriate re-mediation path based on actual configuration state, change information, system dependencies and behavior will be possible. The business and enterprise can act intelligently by modifying its own processing rules automatically. Complex Event Processing (CEP) based BI is real-time intelligence automating intelligent business behavior. Users can update rules and policies in AyushNet CEP engine and apply CEP to events to respond in real-time. HP Operations Center is a centralized management tool that allows IT administrators to manage networks, storage, applications, and end-user service levels to provide solutions across the spectrum of the data center. AyushNet CEP based products can be plugged into HP Operations Center for generating real-time dashboards to manage workloads for rapid consolidation, migration, and failover.

1511 - Exchange Server 2007 Mailbox Role Memory Characterization Using HP BladeSystem

Stuart Ladd
When Microsoft set out to design its next generation Exchange platform, Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 (Exchange 2007), one of the major objectives was to tame the I/O demands, which the previous versions placed on the disk storage subsystem. Since its introduction, Microsoft Exchange, by its nature, has been a very disk I/O intensive application. The demands placed on the storage subsystem required Exchange Server 2003 (Exchange 2003) customers to focus on storage performance and not just on disk capacity. If the storage solution was not capable of providing the disk I/O performance needed, the server would bottleneck, and response times would increase, resulting in unhappy end users. This was, unfortunately, a common support issue for Microsoft, and difficult to address from an application standpoint with the limited memory resources available in the x32 Windows operating system. With Exchange 2007, Microsoft was able to move away from the limitations of a 32-bit operating system with the move to a 64-bit operating system using Windows Server 2003 x 64 platforms. This allowed for significant increases in available memory resources for the application, allowing memory to scale well beyond the 4GB available to Exchange 2003; designers could now cache greater portions of the Exchange database(s) in memory. By increasing database cache, larger portions of the user's mailbox can now be cached, reducing the I/O demands on disk. This presentation demonstrates the benefits of additional system memory in the ProLiant BL480c blade server and details other performance considerations when working with larger memory configurations.

1751_Rossen-v3.ppt.pdf 1762 - Security for the wireless network: the ubiquity of wireless access

Swayam Prakasha
They're convenient and they're seemingly everywhere. Wireless networks are taking our culture by storm. From business and homes to public spaces, it's easier than ever to work using Wi-Fi. With the help of today's technology, almost anybody with the basic computing skills can set up a wireless network. It's easy - so easy in fact, that most people don't fully grasp exactly how their data will be transmitted, and why there are inherent security risks associated with wireless. It has been estimated that approximately 40-50% of all wireless network /data / access users have either inadequate network security or no security at all. Whether using a home network, corporate Wi-Fi, or a public hotspot, wireless networking is a convenience that can come with a steep price tag.
This paper will first cover the various security attacks that can happen over a wireless network. The next section focuses on mechanisms that will reduce those attacks. In another section, we will have a look at the architecture of a wireless LAN and effective management of wireless LAN. The next section focuses on Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA). The final section deals with the best practices that will help in avoiding the security pitfalls of wireless.
1923 - Network Security - Controlling Access to the Network

Jeff Carrell
How does a network administrator or department manager ensure that the network users are actually the "real" users and are accessing the network at appropriate times and accessing only specific data as required to do their jobs? This session focuses on controlling access to the network by requiring users to authenticate with appropriate credentials by implementing the IEEE 802.1x standard. Policy access controls can be implemented and enforced at the network layer so that once a user has authenticated on the network, the access granted can be further refined to only provide access to the systems specifically needed for the user. Guest users can be authenticated and be provided only with access that doesn't expose the company's data assets to increased risk. Participants are encouraged to bring their WLAN-enabled devices to see exactly how the controlled access really works.
1923_Carrell.ppt.pdf 1928 - Convergence and Security on the Network

2218_Sanchez.ppt.pdf 2219 - ProActive Defense - A New Paradigm for Network Security

Mauricio Sanchez
It is often said that the best offense is a good defense. Yet the opposite has become true for network security. What may sound like an oxymoron - proactive defense - is now a necessity in today's networking environment. As infrastructure vulnerabilities and incidents continue to rise and workforces become increasingly mobile and collaborative, security strategies can make the difference between seamless operations and debilitating setbacks.
Unfortunately, security issues are here to stay. And the realities are shocking: 90 percent of organizations experience security incidents each year, and 64 percent of those companies incur financial loss. Even more alarming is the majority of organizations are not sufficiently protecting themselves from evolving threats. The old network security paradigm is clearly not working, and new strategies are required.

This session will outline new ways to proactively defend an enterprise network, its data assets and users. Through automated protection, detection and response, companies can achieve simultaneous offense and defense as key components of their network security strategy. How to establish a trusted network infrastructure that is immune to threats, controllable for ensuring appropriate use and able to protect the integrity of enterprise data will be revealed.
2220 - Successfully Playing the Network Security Game: Combining the Offense and the Defense

Mauricio Sanchez
Building a secure network is no game to consider lightly. The age of innocence is over. Technologies, as well as those using them, have become more savvy, more intricate and at times, more dangerous. Enterprise networks, which act as the gateway and hotbed for both intentional and unintentional harm, are increasingly vulnerable. Downtime is no longer an inconvenience, but a costly and debilitating specter.

Deepak Munjal
As organizations increasingly rely on IT to help enable, and even change, their business strategies, they need their IT infrastructure to be more powerful, agile and cost effective than ever. Today's enterprises require continual system availability, demand ubiquitous access, and expect rapid and fluid responses to their ever-changing business needs. A primary tenet of the Cisco Data Center 3.0 strategy is the concept of a unified data center network fabric that concurrently handles LAN, SAN, and server clustering traffic, enabling every server in the data center the ability to connect to any IP or storage resource. This markedly improves the service capabilities, flexibility, and resilience of the data center while simplifying cabling and network infrastructure and reducing power and cooling overhead. This session explains how a unified fabric is driving the need for a new class of data center switches that meet business requirements for flexible, available, and secure network fabric, while addressing the realities of data center operations.

Attendees will walk through three systematic views for high availability: (1) active system states that are subject to performance, response time, and scalability/load balancing issues; (2) unplanned outages caused by data-level or system-level failures; and (3) planned or �scheduled� outages which are taken for any combination of application, database, and/or hardware upgrades, migrations, or maintenance activities. The presenter will discuss ways to better understand and differentiate solutions for each of those three availability states, including synchronous vs. asynchronous replication and even options for conflict detection and resolution in dual-active implementations. Real-world customer best practices examples and product demonstrations will further illustrate this session.
1876 - Migration from S-series to Integrity, the Xtrakter way.

Darren Coffey
Migrating the Xtrakter Trade Matching and Securities Database applications from S-Series to the Integrity platform.
My presentation takes us though the business reasons for upgrading the hardware, the practical steps taken to reach the final goal and the pleasure and pain in getting there.
Given a high profile Business driver to implement new software for MiFID (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive) to allow Xtrakter to become an affiliated ARM (Approved Reporting Mechanism) for financial institutions, Xtrakter had a tight deadline to upgrade their NonStop Capacity to cater for new business volumes (potentially) overnight 1st November 2007.
This presentation tells you a little about Xtrakter (formerly) ICMA Limited. How they coped with the 1st November Business volume increase in the interim, and the process of migrating to the Integrity platform from S-Series during the 1st Quarter 2008. It tells how the Xtrakter workforce worked in collaboration to achieve an extremely tight timescale meeting the business demands of migrating in less than 6 months.
The body of the presentation covers the migration project from beginning to end (Note at the time of writing the Project was only half way through its life cycle. Update later can be supplied if required). The main areas under discussion will be power requirements, physical challenges, Systems Software issues, Application coding issues and a host of challenges we had to compete with. Next comes a discussion on the testing required to ensure confidence before implementing live. I will discuss the actual testing (System and Application) performed with lessons learned. I will discuss specific issues encountered and how HP were involved in resolving the �show-stoppers� as well as the day to day issues. Included in the presentation will be an overview of other on-going projects that helped shape some of the decisions made during the Migration Project life-cycle. Finally I will discuss the options for migration using VTS, RDF and others, ending with a section on the physical migration itself.
Finally the presentation wraps up with an overview of the Roadmap for Xtrakter looking into the future of what Xtrakter will supply for its Client base and a look at the potential technical projects it hopes to complete before the end of 2008. It will also cover the challenges facing the Company going forward.

1917 - Active/Active 101

Bill Highleyman
Active/active systems can achieve extreme availabilities (literally seconds of downtime per year). An active/active system is a network of independent processing nodes actively cooperating in a common application. Should a node fail, recovery is in subseconds to seconds. Though active/active systems have been successfully deployed in the NonStop community for several years, the technology is applicable to OpenVMS and HP-UX systems as well. Active/active systems can provide century MTBFs, eliminate planned downtime, provide disaster tolerance, enable application scaling, provide risk-free failover testing, use all available capacity, and can be load-balanced at will. Best of all, these benefits can often be achieved with little or no extra cost. This session explores how to configure active/active systems and explains why such high availabilities are achieved. Several contemporary examples of successful active/active systems in production today are presented.
1917_-_Active-Active_101.ppt.pdf 1919 - Active/Active Systems in Action (a panel)

Bill Highleyman
Active/active systems can effectively eliminate downtime, leading to availabilities of six to eight nines and MTBFs measured in centuries. There are many successful installations of these systems today that exhibit these characteristics. This panel will review the current state of active/active systems, updating the attendees on current products available to support these systems and providing some case histories of current installations. Panel members include those from third-party providers, customers using this technology, and HP. Following the panel presentations, the floor will be opened for questions and comments from the attendees.
1927 - Advantages of Multinode Active/Active Architectures

Bill Highleyman
Systems are now in production that operate as a set of cooperating nodes in an active/active configuration achieving uptimes that are vrtually 100%. There are many additional benefits of a multinode architecture including extremely high availabilities (six 9s and beyond), extraordinary recovery times from a failure, disaster tolerance, elimination of scheduled downtime, data locality, efficient use of all purchased capacity (no standby system), simplified, risk-free, and fast failover testing and application scaling. This session explores the advantages of multinode configurations and delves into the economics of these systems in terms of total cost of ownership (TCO).

2900 - Business Continuity - Legend, Myth and the Real Life

Wolfgang Breidbach
Everybody talks about BC. But what is BC? Many people know the following situation: The customer claims that the application does not work. The system manager checks the system, everything is ok. The database administrator reports the database as ok, the communication manager can not detect any problem, but the customer still reports that he can not work. Hours later somebody finds out that the local internet provider of the customer had a problem. But anyhow the customer got the impression that the application provider was not available. The presentation will show several examples of problems from real life and will further on discuss how many of those problems can be avoided and a very high availability can be provided.
The presenter has a very long experience in BC and he implemented the first active-active system known of.
2901 - Successful Availability Practices

Joseph Rivera
True system availability involves more than backup media and backup hardware.

Open Source & Linux
1121 - Debugging on Linux

Swayam Prakasha
Every significant piece of software will contain defects and these mistakes lead to programs and libraries that will not perform as expected. The bugs and the process of their removal can consume a significant amount of time in the software development process. There are several ways to debug and test a typical Unix / Linux program. We usually run a program to find out what is really happening. The debugging process consists of the following for phases. Testing - to find out the bugs that exist. Localization - determining the line(s) of code responsible. Correction - fixing the bug Verification - to make sure that the correction works perfectly. In this paper, we will cover various ways of debugging a program. First we will touch upon gdb and we will see with example code how to use it effectively while a program is executing. Another section of this paper deals with other debugging tools such as lint, ctags, cxref and cflow. We will also see how to use the �assert� macro effectively. In the next section, we will have a look at memory debugging and see how we can take advantage of �Electric Fence� ,�Memwatch� and �Checker� with examples. The final section of this paper focuses on �strace� and �kgdb�.

1936_Seger.ppt.pdf 2016 - Leading Your Company with Open Source

Kartik Subbarao
Open Source can transform your company if you understand why, how, and where to deploy it. Most conventional advice around open source focuses on just one dimension at a time: people, process, business or technology. To get breakthrough results, you need to view these dimensions as part of an integrated whole, and consciously address two or more of them simultaneously. Consider the following questions, which can be answered by technologists and managers alike:
Do you design IT solutions around open standards? Do you exploit the flexibility and features of high quality open source software? Do you capture, both quantitatively and qualitatively, data that can illustrate your return on investment with open source? Do you share and reuse code freely and openly within your company? Do you contribute to external open source projects? Do you make granular tradeoffs across the spectrum of buying, integrating, and building software, proprietary and open source alike? Do you have a strong community of practice for open source inside your company? Does it share knowledge, foster mentoring, and develop high trust relationships among its members? Do you design an architecture of participation into products/services that you sell to your customers? Do you enable your customers to directly improve your product, and to collaborate with each other?
In this session, we'll talk about how these goals are complementary to each other, and how you can tap your and your organization's strengths to achieve them most effectively.

So you are a system administrator, but not an OpenVMS system admin. But, for whatever reason, (maybe one of the OpenVMS system admins won the lottery and went on to other things?), you find yourself having to manage an OpenVMS system. You know the concepts (setting up users, disks, etc) of managing systems, but you don't know the OpenVMS commands. This session will teach you those commands and how to use them. -- This session can be expanded to 4 hours if needed or can be a tutorial instead of a hands-on lab. It can also be a 1 hr session. The difference will be how much detail is given.
1653 - Story of the OpenVMS Cluster in the Disaster Proof Video - How It Recovered So Fast and How Yours Can, Too

Leo Demers
HP's Disaster Proof video at http://hp.com/go/DisasterProof/ proved that HP disaster-tolerant solutions can be configured to survive a disaster as bad as total destruction of an entire data center. Go behind the scenes and learn how the Disaster Proof demonstration and video were made. Learn how an OpenVMS Disaster-Tolerant Cluster can be configured to survive loss of an entire data center and continue operating. Last year HP brought disaster-tolerant configurations for each of its operating system platforms to the ballistics test range at National Technical Systems in Camden, Arkansas and used 70 pounds of C-4 explosives to blow up the contents of an entire data center to demonstrate that its products could survive such a disaster, preserve all the data, and recover quickly. This session describes the specific configuration and parameter settings used for the OpenVMS Cluster, how and why they were selected, details of the technologies and techniques involved, and how customers can configure their own OpenVMS Clusters for zero data loss and quickest recovery times in the event of a disaster.
1653_Demers.ppt.pdf 1655 - Migrating OpenVMS Storage Environments without Interruption or Disruption

Robert Gezelter
HP OpenVMS is a 24x7x365 operating system with 99.9999% availability, leading to an incredibly low total cost of ownership (TCO). Its clustering, considered the gold standard by major research firms, allows managers to add or remove processors from the cluster virtually at will, producing cluster uptimes that are often measured in years, not days. The dynamics of adding and removing processors from a cluster is well understood. The ability to rearrange storage components without interrupting a production system is far less familiar to many.
This session will examine how the facilities in HP OpenVMS, including online device configuration, dissimilar device shadowing, and other features, can be used to achieve seamless operation.
1656 - How the OpenVMS Cluster Recovered So Fast in the Disaster Proof Video, and How Your Cluster Can, Too

Keith Parris
HP's Disaster Proof video at http://hp.com/go/DisasterProof/ proved that HP disaster-tolerant solutions can be configured to survive a disaster as bad as total destruction of an entire datacenter, and to continue operations quickly afterward with no loss of data. The OpenVMS Cluster was the first to recover of all of the operating system platforms HP sells, resuming just 13.71 seconds after the explosion.
Experience gained both in the labs at HP and at actual HP OpenVMS customer sites went into the design of the OpenVMS configuration used for the Disaster Proof demonstration. This session describes that experience, as well as the specific configuration and parameter settings used for the OpenVMS Cluster, how and why they were selected, details of the technologies and techniques involved, and how customers can configure their own OpenVMS Clusters for zero data loss and quickest recovery times in the event of a disaster.
1660 - Strategies for Migrating from Alpha and VAX Systems to HP Integrity Servers on OpenVMS

Robert Gezelter
The ideal method for migration to OpenVMS on the Intel� Itanium� architecture is to recompile, relink, and requalify. Learn how to stage applications from Alpha/VAX to Itanium, how to avoid interruptions to availability, and how to use the different tools. OpenVMS provides unique capabilities that allow an organization to assimilate HP Integrity servers in a phased, structured, extremely low-risk approach. This strategy decouples the different phases to the maximum extent possible, permitting the assimilation process to proceed transparently to users, with minimal disruption to operations and minimal business risk.

This session describes how to identify which files could benefit from the addition of RMS Global Buffers and provides techniques you can use to determine the apporpriate number of global buffers for a given file.
1664_Sizing_RMS_Global_Buffers_Parris_Final.ppt.pdf 1667 - RESTful Applications on OpenVMS

Robert Gezelter
Representational State Transfer (REST) is an architectural philosophy for implementing WWW-based applications. This approach uses a less structured approach than SOAP to interconnect different www-based applications. OpenVMS, with its robust uptime, rich runtime environment, and CSWS and WASD www servers is ideally suited as an application for RESTful applications.
This session will review the principles behind REST and how OpenVMS provides tools that enable the REST approach to be used for enabling information interchange, for both new and existing applictions.
1668 - Gradualism: The Key to Maintaining High Availability

Robert Gezelter
Maintaining high availability is a science unto itself. Some practices aid maintaining uptime and minimizing disruptions to availability. Some do not.
One of the most disruptive practices is the "cut-over", whether it is the switch to new hardware, operating system version, or application.
The experience of the long-running sites in the OpenVMS community is that several OpenVMS technologies, including OpenVMS clusters and host-based shadowing, provide foundation technologies that enable strategic approaches to eliminating disruptive transitions while maintaining the ability to upgrade all elements of the environment.
This approach makes it far more feasible for users to consider the environment a utility resource, with corresponding uptime.

Moreover, the presentation will present real world case study examples of successful approaches that different companies have taken to become compliant, including providing insight into the types of technologies that are available for achieving and maintaining compliance.
One of the main points of this presentation will be to address the potential outcomes of non-compliance, including the bottom line impact. As a complex set, PCI requirements leave room for confusion that should be addressed. Direct costs, such as fees, fines and termination of card acceptance agreements, as well as indirect costs, like the bearing of non-compliance on a business reputation and a potential loss of corporate goodwill, could severely damage the bottom line. This presentation will dispel any rumors of the PCI requirements while delivering valuable facts about cost and loss potential.
Furthermore, this session will provide attendees with three case studies of companies that have already tackled the issue of PCI compliance. The stories of a major North American bank, a direct manufacturer/retailer and a major retailer will help to demonstrate gap assessments, solutions development and remediation, and will underscore the role and importance of external auditors in validating compliance.
The session will conclude with a vendor-neutral evaluation of technology solutions, including encryption, technologies for preventing data leakage, firewalls, IPS (intrusion prevention systems), two-factor authentication tools and methods for log management or SIEM (security incident and event management).
1498 - What Not To Write: Information Security Policies in the 360-Degree Mirror

1201 - Virtualization Security

Swayam Prakasha
Virtualization has become all the rage for companies interested in optimizing their servers and storage systems. The shift in data center architecture allows IT organizations to reduce operational costs and increase flexibility and responsiveness to changing business demands. But in this rush to virtualize, security can fall by the wayside. And this lack of security is likely preventing many enterprises from experiencing the full benefits of this major network transformation. The companies that adopt virtualization without having best practices in place run the risk of jeopardizing enterprise security.
One section of this paper explains how convenient and efficient virtual machines can increase the security exposure. The next section focuses on the various pitfalls that we need to take care of while dealing with virtualization security. Another section deals with fighting security ghosts in virtual machines. The final section focuses on the best practices that an organization need to follow as far as virtualization security is concerned.

1267_chappell.pdf 1280 - Managing Strong Authentication

Swayam Prakasha
To meet regulatory mandates and more demanding business requirements for data protection, organizations increasingly need to implement strong authentication systems that use more sophisticated means of authentication to identify users. But choosing among the myriad strong authentication options is only the beginning of the battle. The real challenge lies in integrating them with existing infrastructure and applications, without requiring wholesale changes. An effective strong authentication strategy is a fundamental building block of a strong, defense in depth security architecture. The first section will help in understanding the need for a strong authentication system and the benefits offered by such a system. The next section deals with Single Sign On (SSO) and improvements offered by SSO in security, productivity and compliance areas. We focus on some of the strong authentication mechanisms such as grid cards, out of band authentication, risk based authentication etc. In the last section, we will see how strong authentication offsets SSO risk aggregation. The last section focuses on the guidelines for deployment and management of strong authentication.

1588 - Protecting Your I.T. Infrastructure: Will You Take the Red Pill or the Blue Pill?

Jan De Clercq
In the film 'The Matrix' Neo has to choose between taking the blue and the red pill. If he takes the blue pill he will be able to continue in a reality with which he is comfortable because he understands it but is ultimately a facade. If he opts for the red pill everything he has accepted as reality thus far will be altered. Just like Neo, we in the information security community have options. Some people have a 'blue pill' mentality when it comes to considering attack timelines and the attack landscape. This session will try to convince you that this must change if we are to achieve greater security. The focus is on the solutions HP offers to help you reach a more pro-active defense and an adequate level of protection for today's I.T. threats.

The forensics process will be applied to several examples of real-life spam, scam, and forged messages.
1616_Lamont.ppt.pdf 1618 - Bodyguards and Band-Aids - Scaling Back Your Costly Security Fortress With Self-Protecting Software Appliances.

Bill Worley
Non-security objectives led modern general-purpose operating systems to rely upon monolithic kernels and a more than 40-year-old, CPU-only hardware protection model. This kernel structure is inherently flawed and breeds vulnerabilities among unrelated components. The industry's basic response has been to surround vulnerable server systems with protective "bodyguard" systems to shield them from the malice they now routinely encounter from Internet traffic. Sadly, bodyguard appliances themselves often employ the same defective structures as the servers they were designed to protect. Get a better understanding and appreciation for how insecure systems really are today. Discover the seven root causes of insecurity. Learn the nine specific properties needed to achieve �genuine security� and how to go about implementing them.

1753 - It is time to protect a virtualized environment

Swayam Prakasha
Organizations are adopting virtualization technology to reduce total cost of ownership and improve quality of service of IT systems. This strategy provides the operational foundation to consolidate critical services and sensitive data that were once scattered amongst distributed system deployments. From a security standpoint, not only are the security issues found on networked systems applicable to virtual machines, but the virtualization platform and guest workstation relationship introduces a new breed of security threats. A single compromise of the hosting platform puts the entire virtual data center at risk.
In this paper, we will see the various virtualization security risks and how we can reduce these risks by employing an independent access enforcement technology. We will also have a look at how some of the vulnerabilities that were traditionally controlled by the presence of physical security can now be mitigated through the implementation of granular access controls on the virtualization platform. The final section deals with the various mechanisms for protecting the virtual environment.

1608 - Your SOA will Fail Without a Data Services Strategy -

John Goodson
Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs) are rapidly becoming the standard for new application development in many organizations. Architects and development teams value SOA because it enables them to rapidly deploy new applications and functionality while utilizing existing assets to standardize common functionality. In this presentation, John Goodson an instrumental figure in the development of every major database connectivity standard will share his first-hand experience with organizations that implemented SOA using application services that were tightly coupled with the data access logic - resulting in deployments that were brittle and difficult to maintain.
The presentation will lay out a strategy for designing a data access standard in the SOA context and how this approach will simplify development and deployment and increases overall flexibility. The presentation will explore the Service Data Object (SDO)/Data Access Service (DAS) standard and dissect code examples of how applications can use SDO to access and manipulate data stored in a variety of formats such as relational, XML, unstructured data, etc. The session will address how the DAS can form the foundation of an organization's data services solution that will provide the proper level of abstraction and flexibility from SOA-based services that contain application logic.

1978 - Successful SOA with HP and Oracle Technology

Grant Sidwall
The major topic in most Information Technology departments today is Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Almost all major projects include some aspect of SOA, whether it is just incorporating some SOA principles, or a full blown corporate move to a Service Oriented Architecture.
As popular as SOA is, implementing it is not well understood. There are many technologies involved and this complexity can obscure the other, non-technical issues. Because an SOA architecture changes the way business processes are defined and implemented, it becomes a corporate wide initiative, not just an IT project. All aspects of the business are involved, and this can lead to new group interactions and new forms of governance. Business processes will now consist of steps that are owned by multiple business units, so process owners will have to rely on process steps owned by someone else. Establishing inter-departmental communication and trust can be an essential, non-technical, part of an SOA implementation.
Because there are so many issues involved in implementing SOA, there are many tools available within the SOA landscape. This presentation will outline the SOA products available from Oracle and from Hewlett-Packard. It will show what each product is meant to do, and where each product fits into a Service Oriented Architecture solution
2120 - UDDI Registry Use Cases and Best Practices

Pankaj Kumar
UDDI (Universal Description Discovery and Integration) Registries are basic building blocks of a SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) ecosystem. A UDDI Registry not only provides runtime visibility into deployed services to programs but also allows other participants such as architects, developers, service providers, service consumers etc. to share vital information about the services by facilitating program-to-program communication. No wonder a UDDI Registry is an integral part of most SOA platforms. Even ISVs (Independent Software Vendors) that have embraced SOA are exposing their services through a UDDI Registry, highlighting its enhanced status within enterprises.
The proposed session will talk about UDDI Registry use cases and best practices based on author's experience in working with HP SOA Systinet customers and alliance partners. Specifically, the session will cover:
What is UDDI and why should you care? Improving Performance and Reliability at Run Time Visibility into Up-to-date Service Description at Design Time and Development time Design Time SOA Policy Management Run Time Service Policy Management Exposing Services to External Partners Automated Configuration of Software

1120 - Security in Storage Networks

Swayam Prakasha
IT organizations are viewing storage as a strategic differentiator for existing and new applications. And these organizations are recognizing the important role played by the information in their business. As storage networks continue to grow, security plays an integral role. A number of security problems are existing in storage networks and one needs to follow certain best practices in order to reduce their impact. While security threats used to mean hackers defacing web sites and short term embarrassment for an organization, new security threats are more serious matters - as they can corrupt or delete Intellectual Property of an organization. This will result in the loss of organization's revenue. With the rapid growth of network storage, more and more businesses are experiencing network security attacks. The consequences of attacks range from mere inconvenience to total devastation. One way or the other, a lot of companies are growing increasingly concerned.
To support a good security process, one needs to address certain basic security elements. Overall, an organization's storage structure must be able to address these security elements in some form or the other to support a strong storage security posture.
One section of this paper discusses the security methods and technologies. The focus in this section will be on Inline encryption and key based authentication. We will end this section with a comparative study of these two.
There are several best practices and by following these best practices, one can prevent most of the common security attacks in storage networks. Another section covers in detail these best practices.
As storage networks grow, the need for security in storage also grows. Storage security will have to meet a number of milestones and challenges in order to become a part of storage networks. There are various challenges and if we fail to meet these challenges, it can have a high impact on the business of an organization. We will try to understand these challenges in storage security world in another section of this paper.
The final section will summarize the security and its features and impact when it comes to storage networks.

3337 - Data Protection, Continuity, and Disaster Recovery For the Budget-Conscious Business

Rich Bruklis
Implementing a continuity strategy for data protection and disaster recovery does not have to be a complicated or a 'break the bank' proposal. Several new technologies can combine to provide excellent protection against failure - whether it is device level, server level, or a local problem. Creating "point-in-time" copies of data and "real-time" copies together can help against almost any IT problem. This combination of technologies offers improved "Recovery Point Objectives" and "Recovery Time Objectives". Customers hear mixed messages coming from the market about "Tape is Dead" but in fact, tape is very much an integral part of any protection scheme. The key to better protection is to complement tape with other technologies constructing a better overall solution. Local array snapshots can provide more timely protection throughout the work day and real-time replication can protect data up to the last transaction with products like Storage Mirroring. These technologies can be implemented without dedicated communication protocols and infrastructure making the deployment easy on existing resources.
