  • How to Leverage NVMe-based Storage in Existing FC SAN and iSCSI Environments
    How to Leverage NVMe-based Storage in Existing FC SAN and iSCSI Environments
    Rajeev Sharma, Senior Product Manager, Data Center Systems Recorded: May 15 2019 29 mins
    Businesses across the globe are grappling with how to not only capture and preserve their data, but more importantly, how to transfer the data into actionable insights. After all, data is the currency of the modern economy, and the speed by which an organization can unlock the possibilities of its data is paramount to its success. As a result, many organizations are turning to NVMe – a protocol that is disrupting all-flash array architectures – to provide higher performance and improve their data’s time-to-value. But, transitioning an infrastructure to NVMe may bring up questions, specifically how this will impact existing FC SAN and iSCSI environments.

    In this webinar, you will learn:

    - Why organizations are considering NVMe, and benefits of NVMe-based storage
    arrays
    - How to address the challenges of transitioning to NVMe-based storage
    - How to leverage NVMe-based solutions in existing FC and iSCSI storage
    environments
    - How to effectively consolidate storage silos without any trade-offs in performance
    and latency
    - How Western Digital’s IntelliFlash N-Series enables high performance at low
    latency for the most demanding workloads, your mission critical applications
  • NVMe-oF 101 - Understanding NVMe-oF and How it Drives Business Value
    NVMe-oF 101 - Understanding NVMe-oF and How it Drives Business Value
    Dave Montgomery, Director, Storage Platforms Marketing, Western Digital Recorded: May 1 2019 24 mins
    Every IT shop is trying to balance two different objectives: 1) increase capacity; 2) deliver the requisite performance against a variety of workloads. Indiscriminately spending money that doesn’t align capacity and storage performance with the workloads’ needs, is wasteful. However, connecting storage capacity and performance across the network with workloads is an easy way to allocate storage resources cost effectively, as needed.

    To address today’s dynamic data requirements, we must consider that end users need a next-generation infrastructure that aligns storage resources with workloads without jeopardizing performance, capacity, or incurring unwarranted expense. Non-Volatile Memory Express over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) is a storage protocol that aims to simplify the interconnection of computer memory, storage, and networking, while improving performance of the storage infrastructure and related applications, to meet IT departments’ objectives and drive business value.

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    • What is NVMe-oF
    • The business value of NVMe-oF
    • The role that NVMe-oF will play in transforming data centers of the future

    Performance, Reliability, Flexibility and Low Cost: All in One Storage Solution?
    Manfred Berger, Sr. Mgr. Business Development Platforms EMEIA Western Digital;Michel Portelli, Sr Dir EMEA Marketing DataCore Recorded: Apr 18 2019 45 mins
    Software Defined Storage is a growing trend in the datacenter, as IT managers are moving away from traditional Tier-1 OEM solutions in an effort to increase flexibility and reduce cost. But putting together a SDS solution, based on various hardware and software components can be challenging. Enter the pre-tested reference architectures from Western Digital and DataCore, that take on storage solutions of Tier-1 OEM vendors by providing equally high performance and world class reliability. But at a much more cost-attractive price point and with much greater flexibility in its tiering capability.

    Join Manfred Berger from Western Digital’s Business Development team and Michel Portelli, Senior Director EMEA Marketing at DataCore Software for this webinar, in which you will learn more about:

    1. DataCore SDS Software Solution
    2. Western Digital hardware JBOD and server platforms
    3. Western Digital and Datacore’s joint storage solutions to take on the SDS market

    NVMe All-Flash Arrays:How to Make the Right Decision for your Enterprise Storage
    David Ridgeway, Senior Manager of Product Marketing. Data Center Systems @ Western Digital Recorded: Apr 10 2019 26 mins
    Accelerating time to insights is the new currency and lifeline for your business. To tap into these insights, today's businesses need an advanced storage option that delivers performance, simplicity, and economics. Success requires you to take advantage of the latest high-performance storage constructs – flash memory, NVMe standards, and fast data storage – to eliminate bottlenecks, management complexity, and the high cost of traditional storage solutions.

    In this webinar you will learn how NVMe enables higher performance all-flash arrays (AFAs) with the requisite enterprise-class management and high efficiency for cost-effective on-premises storage. Even if you’re considering your first AFA, this webinar will provide the information you need when deploying next-generation NVMe AFA solutions:

    -Learn about the benefits that NVMe AFAs bring to enterprise, such as fast data acceleration and accelerating multi-site disaster recovery
    -Five key features to look for in next-generation AFAs
    -Find out how CIOs are using NVMe All-Flash storage to support mission-critical applications
    -Discover, with support from the Forrester Total Economic Impact Study, how flash storage helps consolidate multiple tiers of storage to save on power, cooling, and rack space at a lower total cost

    How NVMe is Reshaping the Enterprise Storage Landscape
    Erik Ottem, Senior Director, Data Center Systems Recorded: Apr 3 2019 28 mins
    Traditional data infrastructures can’t keep up with the rapid growth of low latency semiconductor storage and multi-core processors. Today’s system design requires a multi-lane data infrastructure to keep up with today’s high-performance servers supporting hundreds, if not thousands, of virtual workloads. Join us to see how enterprise storage is evolving – from a slow two-lane country road powered by SAS and SATA to a fast 12-lane divided highway driven by NVMe – to deliver the infrastructure your business needs to stay relevant.
