After the initial release of Red Hat’s container-native storage (CNS) solution for OpenShift, a large number of customers had one question: "Can I run a LAMP-stack database on this?" In this webinar, you will find the answer to this question in a first-of-its-kind performance benchmark on hardware provided by Western Digital. The goal is to investigate whether OpenShift, running on VMware, integrated with Gluster as container-ready storage could run MySQL databases, typically found on web application stacks in containers, at sufficient speed. And if so, what is the best storage hardware to use? How much can we push either the storage or container cluster to its limits? We'll share the findings and discuss designing an OpenShift solution suited for such workloads.
In this webinar Manfred Berger introduces the latest addition to the HGST platform portfolio, the high availability Ultrastar® Serv24-HA NVMe all-flash storage server.
Combining high performance NVMe™ SSDs and two redundant blade servers based on Intel®’s Purley architecture into one tried and tested unit, the Serv24-HA enables customers to come to market quickly with a multitude of dependable software defined storage solutions or data base servers optimized for high speed search operations, catering to a multitude of industry verticals.
NVMe: the protocol, the myth, the legend! There's all kinds of misinformation and misunderstanding out there about what NVMe is and what it isn't.

Join Esther Spanjer, Director of Business Development EMEIA for this webinar if you are interested in understanding more about SSD technologies and how they are implemented in the Western Digital Enterprise Grade SSD product line. She will discuss topics such as flash endurance, data integrity, power fail protection, security features, and reliable operation. Furthermore, she will clarify how to best interpret SSD performance specs and how SSD manufacturers are testing drives for different workload scenarios. For those of you that want to know of what’s going on “under the hood” in an Enterprise Grade SSD will find this webinar informative and educational.
Your first backup appliance was great, but how did you feel about your fifth? As data sets explode into the realm of petabytes, most backup appliances can’t scale to meet the capacity needs of a digital company. The lack of scalability forces companies to buy multiple backup appliances, creating the ‘backup appliance sprawl’. The more backup systems companies have to manage, the more time it takes to balance, monitor and maintain.
Join members of Western Digital and StorReduce to learn about a scale-out deduplication software that enables primary backups to be stored directly on object storage based private or hybrid cloud, eliminating backup appliance sprawl. In this webinar you’ll learn how this technology allows you to:
•Save up to 70% or more for backup environment TCO while retaining your existing backup applications
•Reduce hardware refresh cycle for backup appliances
•Scale as you need without migrations or rip-n-replace hardware changes
•Build a “Data Forever” environment with extreme data durability
Just because Easter is around the corner doesn’t mean your backup appliances should be multiplying like rabbits. Register today!
The storage market has transformed in recent years, with the standalone storage array being attacked from all sides by ambitious rivals vying for customer attention in a world demand more and more from beleaguered IT departments. Today, storage comes in all kinds of forms, from the aforementioned standalone arrays to systems built atop powerful software platforms to fully integrated offerings. We now live in a brave new world in which “buying storage” carries with it far more nuance than in days past. On top of the new choices available in form factor come new choices in media. Flash is now almost a requirement for many products, but that’s not enough for many, either. NVMe is now here to stay and promises to reimagine the data interface in a way that hasn’t been done in a generation.
With both current and emerging flash storage systems, companies are gaining benefits that were only dreams in the days of the disk-based SAN. Far beyond just providing crazy levels of performance, flash storage systems have the potential to help IT organizations focus on the business and less on technology. After all, when you have IOPS to spare, other metrics can take center stage. These can include latency, cost per gig, power consumption, gig per rack unit, and many more.
There are a whole lot of vendors in this burgeoning space, with more jumping in every day. Do you truly understand what each of them brings to the table and how they differ? This ActualTech Media 2018 Storage Flash, and NVMe Storage EcoCast is your opportunity to get deep understanding of this technology and gain knowledge about the leading vendors in this transformational market.
