  • Hybrid Cloud: Is Software-Defined Storage the Missing Piece of the Puzzle?
    Hybrid Cloud: Is Software-Defined Storage the Missing Piece of the Puzzle? Gaurav Yadav, Software Engineer at Hedvig Recorded: Feb 14 2018 44 mins
    The inevitable march to the cloud has begun and Hybrid Cloud is a huge milestone in that journey. It’s easy to use on-prem infrastructure and public cloud in parallel for your workloads, but a lot of friction occurs when these two worlds come together. High Availability, security, and interoperability are just a few. Demand for Data Sovereignty and GDPR throws another wrench into the mix. Storage solutions need to keep up with evolving demands and SDS will play a huge part in making Hybrid Cloud a reality.

    In this session we'll look at:
    - Common pitfalls when building or transitioning to a Hybrid Cloud infrastructure
    - The effect of different use cases on Hybrid Cloud implementation
    - The future of Hybrid Cloud and how to get there

  • Span Private and Public Clouds: Developing a Multi-Cloud Strategy with SDS
    Span Private and Public Clouds: Developing a Multi-Cloud Strategy with SDS Eric Carter, Sr. Director Product Management at Hedvig Recorded: Oct 18 2017 47 mins
    How can enterprise IT operate more like AWS? That is the defining technology question of the decade. Hyperscale computing models pioneered by AWS catapulted “cloud” to the top of the IT agenda. This model fuels digital business, creates tectonic shifts in IT spending, and upends legacy IT infrastructure vendors. But should today’s CIOs build or buy their own cloud? The simple answer: both. We live in a multi-cloud world. A hyperscale strategy balances digital services across private and public clouds.

    In this session we'll provide:
    -Lessons learned from building two of the world’s largest distributed systems: Amazon Dynamo and Facebook's Cassandra.
    -How to develop a multi-cloud strategy for modern data centers that accommodates both virtualized and containerized applications.
    -Where software-defined storage fits into this strategy to help data span cloud boundaries and avoid cloud lock-in.

  • 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.

    Attend this webinar and learn:

    -Why enterprises are looking to converged and hyperconverged solutions to provide cloud-like infrastructure.
    -How software-defined storage is a critical component of these infrastructures.
    -What use cases and scenarios are gaining traction as software-defined storage matures.
    -How the Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform provides a foundation for rack-scale infrastructures.
  • 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.

    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.

    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
