    Western Digital and 451 Research: Strategies for Managing Unstructured Data
    Erik Ottem, Senior Director, Western Digital; Stephen Hill, Senior Analyst, 451 Research Recorded: Mar 20 2019 59 mins
    Data protection has always been one of the top priorities of IT; but the very nature of business data has been quietly changing behind the scenes. Today, unstructured data in the form of documents, images and other types of media files are making up the lion’s share of new data growth, and traditional storage and backup models are unable to provide the information and visibility needed to protect, manage and realize the full potential of the growing mountain of unstructured business data.

    The so-called smart security edge requires innovative, dynamic storage technology to deliver the performance, capacity and endurance needed for real-time artificial intelligence and video analytics. Please join us as we discuss the broadest portfolio of edge-to-core storage solutions for smart security video, only from Western Digital.
  • The Changing Requirements for Automotive NAND Flash Storage
    The Changing Requirements for Automotive NAND Flash Storage
    Russell Ruben, Director, Automotive Marketing Recorded: Feb 28 2019 38 mins
    NAND flash storage is moving from infotainment to many key applications as the automotive industries drives to autonomous vehicles. As the applications change, so does the usage from single storage systems to domain, shared storage. With these additional use cases come additional challenges and requirements for NAND flash.
  • Composable Infrastructure - An Evolutionary Tale
    Composable Infrastructure - An Evolutionary Tale
    Esther Spanjer, Director of Business Development EMEIA Recorded: Jan 31 2019 42 mins
    Datacenter storage infrastructure has come a long way since the days of bare metal and one application per server. Once we found a way to share data across the network in the form of NAS and SAN, the industry has worked on many different fronts to improve CPU utilization, performance and cost and reduce complexity and maintenance. Virtualization, converged and hyper-converged technologies, all added incremental improvements in managing datacenter storage. But modern datacenter managers still deal with problems such as SKU growth, stranded capacity and the need to be flexible enough to adapt to unpredictable growth. The right solution for this is Composable Infrastructure, the ability to disaggregate HW resources and compose them through software.

    Join us for a LIVE webinar where we will discuss the historical evolution of datacenter storage infrastructure and explain how we will move towards Composable Infrastructure in the future.

    Main topics will include:
    1. The evolution from bare metal deployments to current modern infrastructure of scale-out, converged/hyperconverged architectures
    2. What is Composable Infrastructure and what are its benefits?
    3. Western Digital’s offering for Composable Infrastructure

  • Top Reasons for Considering NVMe
    Top Reasons for Considering NVMe
    Clay Ryder, Data Center Systems Marketing Recorded: Jan 24 2019 32 mins
    Is the latent value of your vast data resources being fully leveraged for your maximum success? Odds are, it’s probably not. Ironically, the growth and commercial success you are experiencing due to your data infrastructure, may grind it to a halt, unable to support the burgeoning info glut. “But, how can this be?” you may ask. The answer is simple, your digital business deserves better storage.

    In this webinar we’ll explore the top reasons you should considering deploying NVMe-based storage in your enterprise. You’ll learn how NVMe can not only shift the current data bottleneck, but eliminate it all together while laying the groundwork for a future of highly-decentralized high-performance storage. More importantly, we’ll look beyond the speeds and feeds to envision how NVMe can act as a change agent to drive innovation and success in your business. Discover how NVMe can unlock the latent value of your data by delivering data to your fingertips while changing the fundamental economics of your storage and retrieval of data forever.

  • Western Digital’s Composable Infrastructure Vision
    Western Digital’s Composable Infrastructure Vision
    Dave Montgomery, Director, Storage Platforms Marketing Recorded: Jan 15 2019 33 mins
    The ‘general-purpose’ architectures that have served so well in the past are reaching their limits of scalability, performance and efficiency, typically using a uniform ratio of resources to address all compute processing, storage and network bandwidth requirements. As a result, the ‘one size fits all’ approach is no longer effective for data-intensive workloads. What is required for today’s data-centric architectures that address such diverse applications as big data, fast data, data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), are capabilities that enable more control over the blend of resources that each application needs so that optimized levels of processing, storage and network bandwidth can be scaled independent of one another, enabling both flexibility and composability.

    Composable Disaggregated Infrastructures (CDIs) are becoming a popular solution – delivering greatly improved TCO and addressing the inflexible nature of many current IT architectures. With a total market CAGR of 58.2% (forecasted from 2017 to 2022), CDIs treat physical compute, storage and network fabric resources as services and use an API to create a virtual application environment that provides whatever resources the application needs in real-time to meet workload demands.

    This webinar will cover the current economic pain-points of today’s IT infrastructures and introduce Western Digital’s OpenFlex™ line of composable infrastructure, fabric-attached storage products.
  • In-Memory Computing at Scale – The Next Computing Frontier
    In-Memory Computing at Scale – The Next Computing Frontier
    Esther Spanjer, Director of Business Development EMEIA Recorded: Dec 13 2018 37 mins
    The heavy demands of safe city initiatives, IoT workloads, and other time-sensitive data sets are hitting memory constraints at scale. New datacenter architectures become more and more memory-centric to address the pursuit of greater data processing at lower latency. But IT managers are confronted with cost of high capacity DIMM modules, limited amount of DIMM slots available within the server and low CPU utilization.

    In this webinar, Esther Spanjer, Director of Business Development EMEAI will discuss the technical constraints of memory-intensive applications, and how they can be solved by Western Digital’s newly announced Ultrastar DC ME200 Memory Extension Drive. You will learn more about:

    1. Market trends and challenges for memory-intensive applications
    2. Technical implementation of the Ultrastar DC ME200 inside a server, enabling up to 24TiB of byte-addressable memory in a 1U server
    3. Real test data on applications, such as Memcached, Redis, MySQL and SAP Hana
