  • Accelerating NGS Workloads with Scientific Cloud Computing
    Accelerating NGS Workloads with Scientific Cloud Computing Scott Jeschonek, Director of Cloud Products, Avere Systems Recorded: Mar 29 2017 46 mins
    Next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology has brought an influx of large-scale data and ever-growing demands for compute, resulting in a challenge for those in science informatics. To overcome these issues, laboratories need to be able to support researchers while managing data and the infrastructure needed to deliver mission-critical results and ultimately, positive patient outcomes.

    At the NGS Data Analysis and Informatics Conference in February, attendees spoke about these challenges at length. This webinar, built from content shared at the event, will review potential approaches to cost-effective data growth using cloud compute and storage. Moving genomics workloads to the cloud can provide scale and affordability, while optimizing investments in existing resources. Adding that ability to allow researchers to easily collaborate while reducing latencies to these resources is pertinent to usability.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:
    - Increase computation potential
    - Optimize your physical infrastructure
    - Diagram common use cases to meet specific research goals
    - Increase flexibility by limiting data gravity

    Cloud Bursting 101: What to Do When Computing Demand Exceeds Capacity Bernie Behn, Principal Engineer & Damian Hasak, Solutions Architect Lead Recorded: Feb 16 2017 47 mins
    Deploying applications locally and bursting them to the cloud for compute may seem difficult, especially when working with high-performance, critical information. However, using cloudbursts to offset peaks in demand can bring big benefits and kudos from organizational leaders always looking to do more with less.

    After this short webinar, you’ll be ready to:

    - Explain what cloud bursting is and what workloads it is best for
    - Identify efficiencies in applying cloud bursting to high-performance applications
    - Understand how cloud computing services access your data and consume it during burst cycles
    - Share three real-world use cases of companies leveraging cloud bursting for measurable efficiencies
    - Have seen a demonstration of how it works

    Presenters will build an actionable framework in just thirty minutes and then take questions.

    In a cluttered digital world, advertising commercials need to captivate and stimulate to deliver results for brands. To do this, visual effects techniques are bringing jaw-dropping experiences to 60-second spots on the biggest screens to the smallest. With fast-changing production pipelines and unpredictable rendering workloads, Eight VFX shopped for alternatives to rental nodes to meet peak demands. After considering a number of caching options, bandwidth optimization, and even in-house scripting, they designed a one-click cloud access solution that lead to measurable, compelling value.

    In this webinar, you’ll hear how Eight VFX produces honored, high-end commercials for some of the world’s biggest brands using modern cloud computing resources with instant access to unlimited cores.
  • Sizing Up Object Storage for the Enterprise
    Sizing Up Object Storage for the Enterprise George Crump (Storage Switzerland), Jeff Tabor (Avere Systems) Recorded: Nov 29 2016 61 mins
    Object Storage promises many things - unlimited scalability, both in terms of capacity and file count, low cost but highly redundant capacity and excellent connectivity to legacy NAS (Network Attached Storage). But, despite these promises object storage has not caught on in the enterprise like it has in the cloud. It seems like, for the enterprise object storage just isn’t a good fit. The problem is that most object storage system’s starting capacity is too large. And while connectivity to legacy NAS systems is available, seamless integration is not. Can object storage be sized so that it is a better fit for the enterprise?
