McGraw-Hill Education (MHE) has partnered with Turbot to reduce repetitive manual effort and break down barriers for DevOps teams. Turbot’s Software Defined Operations platform allows MHE to quickly deliver consistent, reliable and compliant development environments, while MHE’s continuous integration / continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline connects these on-demand development environments to isolated production accounts, enabling what MHE calls “Accelerated Development”.
How can you effectively manage cloud operations for over 80 different agile DevOps teams? Automated Guardrails. What guardrails are, how you implement them at scale, and how they work across the entire cloud stack: Networking, Security, IAM, Service Whitelisting, OS Hardening, and Patching.
In this talk you will learn about the challenges of running Cloud Operations at scale, what problems moving to a multi-account model for application and service isolation solves, and typical issues that arise from that approach for a Cloud Operations team.
The talk will walk you through the real-life benefits, challenges, and approaches to using automation to maintain security, compliance and managing day-to-day drudgery of Cloud Operations; enabling the cloud operations team to focus on higher value activities.
Prior to Celgene’s use of Turbot, AWS was off-limits to research due to security concerns. By bringing on Turbot, which can easily isolate workloads and supervises access, Celgene Research has been able to conduct HPC simulations across thousands of nodes in a secure yet flexible manner. Minimization of potential blast radius of applications has been crucial in gaining acceptance from security and the overall enterprise.
Implementing stringent security and compliance controls, like GxP, across your enterprise cloud ecosystem, while ensuring the agility of the DevSecOps process requires significant expertise and a lot of time to design, build, and maintain custom operations tooling. Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research (NIBR) is able to take advantage of the power of DevOps and cloud computing without compromising enterprise security or data protection requirements by using automated policy controls to configure, monitor, and maintain their cloud resources.
Turbot is helping Regeneron Genetics Center (RGC) in AWS to manage their genetics research including EC2, Redshift, RDS, S3 and more. Turbot's out-of-the-box features saved RGC over 2 years of implementation time of having a secure, compliant, and production ready cloud ecosystem for their genomics workloads in AWS.
Turbot worked with the local IT team to understand their requirements and map a solution using AWS’ Simple Storage Service (S3) to deliver 99.999999999% durability for the medical records, while Turbot’s Software Defined Operations platform assisted the business team in meeting all the security and regulatory requirements they were accountable for.
