Copy of Copy of Booth #2432Whether you’re attending Cisco Live or not, chances are your enterprise or large organization is well into developing or implementing its cloud strategy. Further, you’re likely capitalizing on a number of cloud services across multiple platforms.

This year at Cisco Live, we’ll have Paul Terrill, our North American Director of Sales Operations, taking the Think Tank stage for a look into what best practices you can adopt today to get your environment ready for the hybrid and multicloud networks of tomorrow.

With more than a decade of experience delivering software solutions that meet the diverse IP infrastructure needs of some of the world’s largest multinational enterprises and government organizations, Paul is an expert in identifying, and solving, large scale network management challenges.

Here’s a sneak peek at Paul’s talk.

Adopting best practices for a future-ready network

Scheduled for Monday, June 10, 03:30 PM - 04:00 PM, PDT, at SDCC - World of Solutions, Think Tank 2,  Paul’s talk will focus on the challenges organizations face in a cloud-native world, the solutions that transform networks into a future-ready state, and the pitfalls to avoid along the way.

During the session, Paul will explore new best practices and the advantages to adapting hybrid network strategies to take advantage of service-native features in all IP infrastructure solutions, whether on-premise, cloud or multicloud. Specific attention will be given to some of the common pain points in adapting hybrid and multicloud network strategies, such as the potential loss of access control assignments, lost time and staff resources during migration processes and compatibility hurdles between multiple services (and how to overcome them).

Additionally, Paul will describe in detail the advantage of Cisco IOS DHCP against other solutions, as well as where most hybrid and multicloud migration strategies go off the rails. He’ll also be speaking about why IT decision makers need not fear APIs (in fact, why they should embrace them) and why homegrown solutions are no longer acceptable.

Made with your infrastructure in mind

We understand the importance of visibility, control, automation, and security — and also how challenging those can be in complex, hybrid IP infrastructures. Men & Mice provides API-driven DNS, DHCP, and IPAM software solutions to global enterprise, education, and government organizations.

Men & Mice also recognizes the widespread presence and critical importance of Cisco hardware in enterprise networks. With products like Umbrella, Cisco is continuing to bring network infrastructure innovation to larger audiences. By utilizing the Men & Mice Suite with Umbrella, Cisco customers gain the advantage of being able to control internal DNS resolvers, numbering anywhere between dozens to hundreds, in one fell swoop. In addition, proper visibility quickly highlights servers not properly configured.
