  • Create Hybrid Cloud Stretched Clusters Using VMware, AWS, and SDS
    Create Hybrid Cloud Stretched Clusters Using VMware, AWS, and SDS Chris Kranz, Solutions Architect, Hedvig Recorded: Aug 15 2017 43 mins
    Enterprises are evolving their vSphere environments from standard DR configurations to high availability (HA) architectures. VMware vSphere Metro Storage Cluster is a key capability in this evolution. Parallel to this, companies are embracing hybrid cloud and AWS in particular. In many cases enterprises treat AWS as a passive DR site. But what if you could evolve AWS to be part of an HA stretch cluster? That’s where software-defined storage (SDS) comes in.

    SDS solutions provide the flexibility to run on commodity servers as well as cloud computing instances. Couple that with advanced multi-site replication, per-VM storage policies, deduplication, snapshotting, cloning, and VMware’s recent announcement with AWS, and SDS is now the ideal enabler for automated failover in a hybrid cloud stretched cluster.

    In this session we’ll:
    - Provide an architecture for software-defined storage running a stretched cluster between a private vSphere cloud and AWS.
    - Discuss how this provides seamless failover, HA, DR, and cloud bursting—all at scale.
    - Highlight how data efficiency techniques like deduplication, thin provisioning, auto-tiering, and caching optimize hybrid cloud economics.

  • Future-Proof Your Private Cloud with Software-Defined Storage
    Future-Proof Your Private Cloud with Software-Defined Storage Rob Whiteley, VP of Marketing, Hedvig Inc. Recorded: Jan 24 2017 47 mins
    Many large organizations either can’t or won’t go all-in on the public cloud. Regulatory compliance, legacy infrastructure, and costs drive these organizations to build private clouds. Do you invest in VMs or containers? Do you use OpenStack, Kubernetes, or Mesos to orchestrate your cloud? How will you bridge your private cloud with AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google Compute Cloud? You need a flexible architecture that not only embraces all the above, but facilitate frictionless movement among them.

    Specifically, you’ll learn how you can use software-defined storage to:
    1. Support any hypervisor, container, or cloud platform – simultaneously.
    2. Plug into any cloud orchestration tool to automate your private cloud.
    3. Integrate public cloud – and not just bolt it on – when you’re ready.
    4. Create self-service storage and sandboxes for DevOps environments.
  • Multi-Cloud Primary Storage: Building a Single Storage Cluster to Span any Cloud
    Multi-Cloud Primary Storage: Building a Single Storage Cluster to Span any Cloud Rob Whiteley, VP of Marketing Recorded: Nov 16 2016 46 mins
    The journey to the public cloud is underway. A recent survey found that typical enterprises augment their private data center with six public cloud providers. But how do you enable applications and services to span all of these clouds? The agility and flexibility benefits of the cloud are lost if you simply lift and shift infrastructure silos to multiple clouds. However, advances in software-defined storage provide a "universal data plane" that synchronizes data across private and public clouds. Watch this webinar to learn how you can create a multi-cloud primary storage solution that can span any cloud, including a demo of storage that spans AWS, Azure, and Google.
  • Data Synchronization in the Cloud with SDS
    Data Synchronization in the Cloud with SDS Rob Whiteley, VP of Marketing Recorded: Sep 21 2016 36 mins
    Software-defiend storage can dramatically improve the economics of your datacenter. The power of commodity hardware with storage software lowers costs by 60% or more. But what if you’re going to the public cloud? Software-defined storage helps there. In fact, for many enterprises, it’s accelerating their journey. Watch this webinar to learn how software-defined storage can synchronize data across private and public clouds, enabling true application portability.
  • Stretched Clustering for VMware with Hedvig Software-defined Storage

    Software-defined Storage Service interruptions wreak havoc on business. Enterprises expend huge budgets to deliver datacenter redundancy and continuous application availability and still it is not easy. Storage is often the biggest limiting factor. The good news is that recent storage innovations combined with the flexibility of VMware vSphere simplify and lower the cost of delivering automated mobility of services between sites to ensure downtime avoidance and fault recovery.

    Watch this webinar and learn:
    • How to deliver real-time virtual machine migration across a geographically stretched cluster with no data loss or service interruption
    • How software-defined storage streamlines delivery of vSphere Metro Storage Clusters (vMSC)
    • How a multi-site storage system managed as a single logical entity benefits your virtualization deployment

  • Five Benefits to Using SDS for Emerging Docker and Container Initiatives
    Five Benefits to Using SDS for Emerging Docker and Container Initiatives Rob Whiteley Recorded: May 18 2016 45 mins
    As traditional enterprises look to experiment with emerging Docker use cases, the need to connect containers to persistent data or even just to share data between Docker containers becomes more obvious. However, this expansion has proven to be a challenge for infrastructure that relies on monolithic storage arrays. As a result, enterprises are looking to software-defined storage as a more attractive choice because of its flexibility, programmability and ability to provide well-managed, persistent storage. In this talk, you’ll get:

    • What Docker is and is not, as well as container-specific storage challenges
    • Why you need container-specific storage policies, SLAs, and classes of service (CoS)
    • How to leverage software-defined storage solutions for Docker and containers
    • When to use hyperconverged or hyperscale architectures for your Docker initiatives
