  • Automate Data Management for PB-scale Datasets
    Automate Data Management for PB-scale Datasets Jason Coposky, Executive Director, iRODS Consortium; Linda Zhou, Director, HPC and Life Sciences Solutions Recorded: Oct 12 2017 28 mins
    This talk will cover an introduction to the four core competencies of iRODS and their application to data centric, metadata driven, data management. We will then explore how iRODS interfaces with HPC and other models of computation as well as review existing iRODS production deployments.
  • How Dynamic Data Placement Simpllifies Adding Storage Capacity
    How Dynamic Data Placement Simpllifies Adding Storage Capacity Western Digital Recorded: Oct 5 2017 2 mins
    When adding new storage capacity, or when hard drives fail, storage admins are challenged with rebalancing data.

    Here's a visual representation of how the proprietary Dynamic Data Placement technology in the ActiveScale object storage system offers enhanced data durability, faster data rebuild time, and simplified data management. With Dynamic Data Placement you can add new capacity with no performance re-balancing.

    VMware vSAN provides a platform for implementing virtualization on a hyper-converged infrastructure, but it needs proper storage components to work best. Join Esther Spanjer, Director, Enterprise Business Development EMEA, for this webinar where she will look at how HGST-brand HDDs combined with HGST-and SanDisk-brand SSDs can provide the capacity and cost savings of a hybrid approach for many vSAN clusters.
  • Accelerating a Data-Centric Universe
    Accelerating a Data-Centric Universe Martin Fink, CTO, Western Digital Recorded: Aug 8 2017 27 mins
    The exponential growth of data creating devices and data consuming applications continues to accelerate the virtuous cycle of innovation. An insatiable hunger for faster results, precise predictions, immersive experiences, prescriptive recommendations, along with an ever-broadening service economy has launched us into a data-centric universe at both hyperspeed and hyperscale. To maintain the pace of acceleration, the demands of Artificial Intelligence, machine learning and autonomous systems will need to create, access and transform "fast data" at increasing speeds. Likewise, prognosticators and algorithmic scientists will need to capture, protect and analyze increasing volumes of "big data" to achieve the precision required for complex reasoning. Without this essential speed and scale, the soaring value and promise of data is at risk of stalling. Martin Fink, chief technology officer at Western Digital, will offer insights into the opportunities and obstacles that we face in our data-centric universe. Among the topics explored will be: the state of 3D NAND, Storage Class Memory technologies, and the architectural disruptions required to unleash the precision and diversity of emerging fast data and big data applications.
  • Advancing Life Science Research with Multi-tiered Flash and Object Storage
    Advancing Life Science Research with Multi-tiered Flash and Object Storage Robert Murphy, Big Data Program Manager, General Atomics Recorded: Jun 28 2017 46 mins
    From sequencer to archive, the genomics data lifecycle can be characterized by brief periods of intense parallel computation, followed by an eternity of relative data at rest. Ever since the mapping of the first human genome, single-tier scale-out NAS and parallel file systems have been the predominant types of storage used in genomics because they were best at providing both high performance when needed — and capacity forever. But they are expensive because that single-tier provides both high performance and capacity all the time, even though high performance is only briefly needed during the genomics data lifecycle. This webcast will demonstrate how HGST innovations in flash and object storage can target and optimize the two genomics lifecycle regimes, delivering extreme performance for computation with flash on the IBM Spectrum Scale parallel file system — and cost effectively keeping genomics data protected and accessible over increasingly longer retention periods with HGST ActiveScale object storage, with the ability to transparently migrate data between flash and object tiers.
