This one-day seminar is designed to help participants understand the technological, operational and business opportunities created by IPv6 adoption and the risks posed by the transition to the next generation of the Internet Protocol. IPv6 for Decision Makers provides an overview of IPv6 adoption and drivers worldwide, overview of the protocol, its deployment and the path to planning.

Course discussions analyze the impact IPv6 will have on the competitiveness of your business, on the IT investments being made and the security stance of your infrastructure. IPv6 represents an inflexion point for businesses regardless of market, size or focus, an inflexion point that has the potential to significantly impact the organization.

When it comes to IPv6, one of the more contentious issues is one of security. Uninformed analysts, vendors hawking IPv6 security products, and security ne're-do-wells have created a mythos that IPv6 is inherently less secure than IPv4. The facts are that IPv6 is no less, or more, secure than its predecessor. It's all about implementation.

The four-day Securing IPv6 course is focused on providing security architects and administrators with a wealth of practical information on the security impacts of IPv6 integration. Following an implementation oriented format of topic introduction, known security issues, and mitigation practices, this course delivers a practical and reasonable approach to IPv6 adoption and IT security.

OpenStack Troubleshooting

OpenStack is quickly becoming the technology of choice for private and public Cloud infrastructures. Installers might make the deployment seem easy but troubleshooting it requires in-depth understanding of OpenStack concepts, architecture and elements involved. Nephos6 OpenStack Troubleshooting addresses this knowledge gap. This 5 days, hands-on, instructor led class was developed by OpenStack practitioners in collaboration with Cisco to train Global Technical Support. This class covers the OpenStack Core Components (Nova, Neutron, Glance, Cinder, Swift, Keystone, Horizon) , troubleshooting of all components as well as Cisco Neutron Plugins and ACI.

    Professional services organizations might help your organization achieve the desired infrastructure state, but what happens when those consultants leave? Does your staff have the skills and capabilities necessary to properly maintain the infrastructure and services deployed? Is every member of the project team, as well as supporting staff, on the same page in terms of understanding the adopted technologies and operational processes? Are you prepared to hire an army of "consultants" to conduct the implementation or operation of the cloud environment?

    At Nephos6 we don't believe in simply delivering our services and letting our customers "manage" afterwards. We partner with our customers to create a common understanding of adopted technologies, develop the necessary level of technology competence to operate and improve the environment, and enable staff to sustain their environment as a value-added service to ensure the sustainability of a Cloud implementation, Nephos6 offers a variety of educational workshops.

    Aimed at an organization's leadership, this workshop is designed to help managers and decision makers understand the true benefits of cloud computing, in the context of their own IT needs. Coverage includes understanding the business drivers of cloud computing, the process necessary to develop a Cloud strategy, and the methodology used to ensure Cloud delivers the capabilities and benefits required to make it a cost effective endeavor.
    This three day technical course introduces the concepts of cloud computing, identifies the taxonomies and terminologies common in the industry, discusses the standards, tools, and requirements for deploying, securing , and supporting a cloud computing infrastructure.
    An extension of the Cloud Essentials course, this week long training course takes IT technical leaders, architects and designers through not only the basics of cloud computing, but moves beyond into the issues of determining cloud readiness, architecture and design, developing a coherent and comprehensive security posture, and the implementation process.
