  • Cloud Bursting 101: What to Do When Computing Demand Exceeds Capacity 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.
  • Cloud Computing & Digital Media: Scale Peak Demands with Cloud Access Solutions Cloud Computing & Digital Media: Scale Peak Demands with Cloud Access Solutions Damien Bataille (Eight VFX), Philippe Chotard (Eight VFX), Aaron Wetherold (Avere), Jeff Kember (Google) Recorded: Nov 30 2016 60 mins
    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?

  • Hybrid Cloud Outcomes: Transforming Research IT to Support Precision Medicine Hybrid Cloud Outcomes: Transforming Research IT to Support Precision Medicine Aaron Black (Inova Translational Medicine Institute), Jeff Tabor (Avere), Mark Johnston (AWS) Recorded: Oct 13 2016 63 mins
    The Inova Translational Medicine Institute (ITMI) applies genomic and clinical information from individuals to develop personalized healthcare for patients. It is a division of Inova Center for Personalized Health (ICPH), which connects researchers, clinicians and consumers to integrate genomic research for patient care, prevention and wellness.

    ITMI’s Informatics team saw the potential risk of rapid data set growth causing slowed research and increased demand for compute and storage resources. In this webinar, Aaron Black, Director of Informatics for ITMI, will share his innovative hybrid cloud solution that uses a high performance caching layer to couple existing on-premises compute and storage with cost-efficient cloud-based resources.

    Jeff Tabor, Senior Director of Product Management and Marketing for Avere Systems, and Mark Johnston, Director of Business Development for Amazon Web Services, also discuss how ITMI supports large genomic and clinical data sets within their companies.

    Learning Objectives:

    - Discover the objectives of ITMI clinical research programs and how they collaborate with other organizations for studies and to leverage predictive analytics that can guide patient care
    - Learn how ITMI developed and executed a hybrid cloud infrastructure to manage massive research data growth and improve scalability to optimize cost effectiveness and deliver on its mission
    - Discover how ITMI has eliminated redundancies of storing petabyte scale research data between cloud and on-premises storage while managing access to that data for research compute using both cloud and owned resources.
    - Gain insight into technologies and services essential to the topology design and delivery with discussion among supporting panelists

  • Cloud Power: Data Acces and Orchestration Cloud Power: Data Acces and Orchestration Mike Requa (Cycle Computing), Scott Jeschonek (Avere) Recorded: Aug 23 2016 29 mins
    As cloud computing becomes more widely used, the complexity of managing workloads can become more complex. Sometimes this requires the use of more than one cloud service provider. Instead of trying to manage all of these different providers, cloud orchestration offers a more time and cost-effective solution. By keeping data management under control with workflow automation, organizations can instead focus on larger objectives.

    This demo video provides an overview of an easy cloud orchestration solution, integrating Avere's high-performance vFXT Edge filers into the CycleCloud orchestration technology offered by Cycle Computing.
  • Transparent Footprints: Optimizing HPC Workloads with Colocated Infrastructure Transparent Footprints: Optimizing HPC Workloads with Colocated Infrastructure Rui Gomes (RVX), Leigh Huntridge (Avere), and Jorge Balcells (Verne Global) Recorded: Aug 3 2016 55 mins
    Facing build or lease options for their rendering farm and storage, RVX, a growing special effects studio in Iceland, needed to factor high-performance demand and environmental impact into their cost analysis. As they weighed their options, a plan formed with the help of two providers.

    Rui Gomes, chief technology officer at RVX had challenging projects ahead that demanded seamless access to storage resources to render films like 'Everest'. Their needs were quickly outpacing their capacity in their in-house data centre and moving to a cloud service was not an option due to the content needed to remain in a controlled environment. He faced the decision to grow what he owned or look at colocation options that could handle his high performance computing (HPC) needs for complex rendering workflows. In the end, he was able to design a solution that allowed him to check all of the boxes — scalable, accessible and fast with a bonus of an environmentally-friendly footprint. Next steps: deliver powerful, exciting virtual reality (VR) experiences using the same infrastructure.

    In this webinar, Gomes and his selected partners walk through his evaluation process, talk about outcomes, and discuss new opportunities. In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    - How Gomes compared options, prioritized objectives, and evaluated costs
    - About new opportunities in virtual reality using the same infrastructure
    - How distance of the co-located infrastructure became a non-issue even with high performance demands
    - Important factors in choosing a colocation partner when considering calculated cost benefit and enterprise environmental impact
