  • How to Modernize your Storage and Hyper-Converged Infrastructure
    How to Modernize your Storage and Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Anita Kibunguchy, Product Marketing Manager / Matt Ronsman, Global Solutions, Nilan Shakya, Sr. Lead System Engineer Recorded: Jun 13 2017 50 mins
    With 12.5 PB of storage deployed across 16 data centers in four continents, CenturyLink is one of the world’s largest cloud hosting and infrastructure providers. To keep up with their cloud customers’ rapidly growing demands, CenturyLink chose VMware vSAN to modernize their storage infrastructure.

    In this webcast, you’ll learn how vSAN identified and met their needs, how it allowed them to leverage their existing infrastructure and how they reduced their CapEx costs by more than 50%. With vSAN, CenturyLink now has the scalability and flexibility to quickly respond to changing business needs, and a solid foundation for their hyper-converged infrastructure.

  • The Rules of RAID are Changing
    The Rules of RAID are Changing John Nicholson, Ron Scott Adams, Marcus Pucket Recorded: Feb 10 2017 63 mins
    The Rules of RAID are Changing, co-hosted by VMware and Spiceworks

    Back in the day, rules were create for storage admins to make deciding on RAID levels easy. RAID 10 for performance. RAID 6 for bulk capacity. RAID 5 for… well… we’re not sure.

    But thanks to advances in storage technology like flash SSDs and virtual SANs, the rules of RAID are changing. Tune into this week’s On the Air, where we’ll talk about WHY these changes are meaningful and where we need to go with RAID from here. We’ll be sitting down with an IT pro from the Spiceworks Community as well as an expert from VMware.

    What we're discussing:
    How the original rules of RAID came to be... and why they may no longer apply

    How using flash can change the way you need to think about redundancy (and yes, it's affordable now)

    How per-object RAID with VSAN can lower your risk as your storage capacity grows
  • Prepare for Tomorrow's Apps: Containers and VMware vSAN
    Prepare for Tomorrow's Apps: Containers and VMware vSAN Michael Haag, Product Line Manager Storage and Availability VMware Recorded: Feb 10 2017 63 mins
    Technology is shifting faster than ever before with the emergence of new data center architectures, thanks to HCI, and new application architectures, thanks to cloud-native apps and containers. IT departments are faced with addressing immediate day-to-day challenges but also looking ahead to how they can embrace these emerging architectures. Luckily the virtualization revolution of the past decade means organizations are well positioned to evolve their current IT infrastructure to shift to HCI, which provides numerous advantages to cloud-native apps that have their own unique requirements that are important for IT teams to understand. VMware is focused on addressing these requirements as we continue to accelerate the evolution to HCI with vSAN. The hypervisor-integrated architecture of vSAN provides numerous benefits for cloud-native applications, whether deployed on own or as the underlying storage services to Photon Platform.

    Takeaways:
    **How HCI and new cloud-native applications are changing the approach to IT

    **What are the new requirements needed to successful run cloud-native apps and containers

    **How are HCI solutions powered by vSAN well suited to meet new requirements
  • 5 Hyper Converged Infrastructure Myths...Busted!
    5 Hyper Converged Infrastructure Myths...Busted! Michael Haag, Product Line Manager Storage and Availability VMware Recorded: Feb 2 2017 20 mins
    As you start evaluating hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) options, you may run into conflicting ideas about what it is and what it can do. In this webcast, we will debunk some of the common myths around HCI, discuss what’s behind these misconceptions, and clarify how the right HCI solution leads to a simpler and more efficient way to manage your resources.

    Don’t let myths distract you from what you should be considering when choosing the right HCI, which includes:

    —A proven hypervisor in an integrated HCI stack, with reliability evident in its track record and usage.

    —Broad HCI use cases, that include business-critical apps, VDI, managed hosting platforms, micro-services, and more, including core advantages that span any workload.

    —Reduced costs through the automation of manual tasks with agile, policy-based management, and a broad choice of competitive hardware platforms.

    —Fewer silos by evolving existing virtualization and management infrastructures that can protect existing investments in external storage systems.

    —Modular architecture serving as the fundamental building block to grow into a private cloud and full SDDC.
