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.
Designed for Enterprise and the Cloud, the 2U24 Flash Storage Platform addresses the demanding storage needs of large enterprises and Cloud service providers. Offering Enterprise-class high availability with hot swappable SSDs, IO Modules and PSUs, the 2U24 Flash Storage Platform with fully upgradeable firmware enables drive technology and capacity updates without impacting applications.
Join Manfred Berger, Senior Manager Business Development Platforms EMEA, for this LIVE webinar and find out how the 2U24 Flash Storage Platform can deliver the performance you need.
HGST has recently announced new Enterprise SSDs with SAS and NVMe interfaces. In this webinar we will discuss the benefits of upgrading from the existing FusionIO PCIe cards to the new SN260 NVMe SSD and from the existing UltraStar SAS SSD to SS200 SAS SSDs.
It's time to modernize you disaster recovery process, making your organizational data accessible and secure.
An important aspect of enterprise file services is ensuring the uptime of users and offices around the world, with proper methods in place to recover from any scenario: fire, hardware failure, or, increasingly, a ransomware attack.
Join this webinar with CTERA and Western Digital to learn how to deploy a zero-minute disaster recovery plan, ensuring:
- Zero office downtime
- Significant cost savings and fewer headaches
- Business continuity during internet outages
- Seamless failover of file access permissions
- Improved data reliability
Whether trying to connect regional offices or bridging together distributed teams, it can be challenging to build or rely on internal workflow processes to extend beyond company walls.
Join this open discussing with Levels Beyond and Western Digital to understand how the industry is changing and how the hybrid cloud is allowing companies to focus on core strengths and enable new revenue streams.
Also, come see Levels Beyond in HGST booth SL10105 at NAB 2017, April 24 - April 27.
We're generating data faster than we know how to use it - from the billion of smartphone users taking pictures and recording videos to the life sciences world, where genome sequencing could generate 2 to 40 Exabyte of storage by 2025.
If you are looking to better manage your mountains of data, build a future proof data lake, and/or use big data and analytics to improve time to business insight this webinar is for you! In this webinar we will discuss:
· Customer pain points around data growth
· Status quo on existing solutions and their challenges
· Value proposition of our big data & analytics solution
· Use case #1: Manufacturing
· Use case #2: Lifesciences
· Suggest easy next steps
You will leave this webinar understanding how the flexibility and scalability of our big data and analytics solutions are ideal for companies facing exponential data growth, across all industry verticals. It is time to turn your mountains of data into mountains of insight and business value.
Unstructured data is like renegade data. It doesn't fit into a spreadsheet with rows and columns, i’s not in an ERP or CRM where you know what kind of data is in each cell, or how it relates to the rest of the data. So how do you create a sense of order among all this data chaos?
In this webinar you’ll learn about an alternative storage option to overspending on SAN and NAS solutions: object storage. You’ll leave this webinar knowing:
- What is unstructured data
- What are the storage challenges
- The pros/cons of different storage options (SAN,NAS,Object) for scale, performance, durability and cost.
There are many purposes for storing unstructured data; greater customer insight, exposing security threats, or archiving original media files. The challenge from a storage perspective, is how to create order from the chaos.
Delivering the possibilities of data, the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) selects Object Storage from HGST to archive more than 17,000 hours’ worth of live music, video, and data from the Montreux Jazz Festival.
The Active Archive System object store was chosen based on its data
protection, scalability, capacity, and sustainability.
Take a technical deep dive into next-generation object storage for large-scale data that requires both long-term retention with easy and fast retrieval. ActiveScale P100 is an integrated storage system that disrupts the economics of scaling capacity into petabytes, and enables massive data storage repositories on both on-premises and hosted cloud architectures.
