Erik Weaver, Global Director, M&E Market Development & Strategy, Western Digital
The data revolution will be televised. It’s an exciting time in media & entertainment as the digitalization of film and higher densities enable new opportunities like 3D and 8K film to VR and AR. However, these changing workflows and production requirements are placing a growing demand on existing storage solutions.
Join Erik Weaver, Global Director, M&E Market Development & Strategy at Western Digital as he discusses the 5 latest trends within media & entertainment, the challenges they present on underlying storage, and what next-generation technologies the industry is adopting in order to successfully adapt to these new media workloads - whether on-premises or in the cloud.
From the monetization of big data, adoption of the cloud and explosion of IoT devices, to say the data world has changed over the last few years, is a gross understatement. If you’re struggling with how to better manage the explosion of data, beyond just capacity management, this webinar is for you.
Join Erik Ottem, Director Product Marketing at Western Digital Corporation, as he discusses the management and data integrity limitations of traditional storage architectures (RAID), and introduces a next-generation of object storage for the @scale data center. In this webinar you’ll learn how object storage can deliver better:
•Data Integrity how to protect your most valuable asset @Scale
•Geo-spread of data that is less expensive and more reliable than replication
•Rateless Erasure Coding next generation flexibility and resilience
•Storage Analytics how to manage petabytes of data efficiently and effectively
•Strong Consistency for always-fresh data
Data is growing 50% a year. Are you prepared for the future of data?
According to IDC, 24% of companies will move at least 1-2 applications to cloud services over the next year. For cloud architects designing cloud services to meet the expectations of existing and new enterprise workloads need to know how to properly deploy flash to meet infrastructure scale, performance and agility requirements.
Cloud Architects are encourage to join this open discussion between IDC and to get a better understanding on enterprise cloud consumption trends. Also, SanDisk will share details on the use of flash storage for IaaS, DevOps/PaaS, Analytics-as-a-Service, NoSQL, Object Storage, SDN/NFV, and E-Commerce.
Please join us as we unveil how Western Digital is simplifying storage for the @scale datacenter, featuring Dave Tang, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Data Center Systems at Western Digital, Gary Lyng, Senior Director Data Center Systems at Western Digital and Eric Burgener, Research Director for IDC’s Storage Practice.
With Big Data expected to reach 44 zettabytes by 2020, and at least a third of all data to live or pass through the cloud, are you ready for the future of data?
The growth of data has put a strain on data center performance and efficiency. Solid-state-devices (SSD) are playing a significant role in increasing storage speeds and performance – but it’s not a simple plug and play solution. Join Adam Roberts, Chief Solutions Architect at SanDisk, to learn 5 tips to consider when looking to improve storage performance and data center efficiency with flash.
Mission-critical databases and business applications serve as the lifeline of many organizations. Therefore, performance is tantamount. In this webinar we’ll review a recent ESG study that confirms running VMware Virtual SAN cluster with SanDisk® flash easily accommodates the performance and cost requirements of an enterprise-class virtualized OLTP database environment and delivers a better price/performance at the same time. Join Patric Chang, SanDisk, Technical Marketing Manager, Jack Poller, ESG Analyst and Jase McCarty vExpert from VMware to learn:
1. Key features, highlights and benefits of VMware Virtual SAN 6
2. Hybrid and All-Flash Virtual SAN Configurations with SanDisk SSDs
3. Performance results (NOPM) of Hybrid and All-Flash VSAN
4. Price/performance and comparisons between Hybrid and All-Flash Virtual SAN configurations
For the bulk of enterprise data, the answer for cost-effective data storage is not always high-performance primary storage, meant for real-time applications, but rather a more-than-adequate-performance afforded by object-based storage.
If you're involved with enterprise storage, even on the periphery, you've probably heard someone talk about Object Storage. If you feel you don't actually know what object storage is, what the buzz is all about and if, and where, it would be appropriate to deploy in your organization - you're not alone.
Join us to learn why object storage matters, the limitations it solves within the data center, why it's become so prevalent in the age of Big Data, and how customers are using object storage today.
Overall increases in CPU and DRAM processing power are falling behind the massive acceleration in available storage and network bandwidth.Storage management services are emerging as a serious bottleneck.What does this imply for the datacenter of the future?How will it affect the physical network and storage topologies?And how will storage software need to change to meet these new realities?
The only thing you can count on in technology –and life- is change. And change is good! Join this webinar with Nexenta and Western Digital to learn how your options for all-flash software-defined-storage are growing! Learn about the many game-changing technology updates delivering real cost-savings, flexibility and high-performance for customers large and small.
Thomas Cornely, Chief Product Officer at Nexenta and Steve Wilkins, Product & Solutions Marketing at Western Digital will discuss:
* The new features of NexentaStor 5.0
* NexentaFusion 1.0 for simplified storage management and analytics
* The power and cooling savings PLUS high performance with All-Flash SDS
Your datacenter is changing because your data is changing. And for modern companies, data is now an asset to be cherished and that means storage matters more than ever!
As you strive to support the ever-expanding demands of the departments you serve, the right kind of storage can make the difference between meeting SLAs and continually waiting for hardware to arrive at the freight dock. Open, software-defined storage harnesses the power of open source technology on standard servers and disks to provide flexible, scalable services that traditional appliances never could. In short, it behaves like the other modern infrastructure you use—and works well alongside it.
In this session, aimed at cloud builders, storage administrators, IT strategists and practitioners, you'll get an introduction to software-defined storage, the value it provides as part of your IT strategy and real-world example of how combining SDS like Red Hat Ceph with InfiniFlash™ can help turn your data into gold!
