  • NVMe for DBAs
    NVMe for DBAs Matt Henderson & Pinal Dave Recorded: Mar 8 2018 63 mins
    Since flash storage hit the market a few years ago, storage technology has been innovating at an ever-increasing rate. With new technologies like NVMe already out, and the next round of fabrics and 3DXpoint/Optane becoming production ready soon, database architects have a lot more to pay attention to and many more options for scaling or consolidating platforms. In this webinar we will cover:

    - The emerging technologies influencing database platforms (NVMe, fabrics, 3DXpoint/Optane, etc)
    - The effect of NVMe systems on database architecture & design
    - Database and data processing use cases for NVMe systems & 3DXpoint/Optane. (From existing SMP workloads like OLTP & analytics to emerging MPP technologies like AI, ML & IoT)
    - How to test NVMe systems (it’s not just about the average latency anymore)
    - How to see value per database & data processing workload

    We will review the state of infrastructure through the eyes of DBAs, database architects, and systems engineers and help them understand what they need to know for their current platforms and future platform design.
  • Crossing The Digital Transformation Chasm
    Crossing The Digital Transformation Chasm Shailesh Manjrekar, Sr. Director, Product & Solutions at Vexata, Frederic Van Haren, Senior Analyst at Evaluator Group Recorded: Feb 13 2018 58 mins
    Leverage Vexata Active Data Fabric Ecosystem for AI, Deep Learning, Machine Learning and Cognitive Pipelines

    Digital Transformation is cutting across industries and making a profound impact in our lives. Data is the new oil, however, businesses need a different approach to drill this oil, in a way it impacts the business processes positively and instantaneously. Existing datacenter infrastructure falls short in meeting the requirements of these new distributed and massively parallel pipelines and datatypes and need to evolve.

    Several trends are proving to democratize Digital Transformation vision and technologies are emerging as building blocks. Notably Convergence of HPC, Big Data Analytics, and Artificial intelligence markets, driven by GPU computing, open sourcing of ML / DL frameworks, Distributed architectures, faster storage media like NVMe and 3D-Xpoint and faster networking with NVMeOF are fueling these trends.

    Join this webinar and learn about the latest industry trends, vertical use cases and how Vexata with its Active Data Fabric ecosystem is uniquely positioned to help its customers cross the chasm.

    Webinar takeaways:
    1. Future of Analytics – move from descriptive to prescriptive and now to cognitive, leveraging Deep Learning, neural nets, streaming paradigms
    2. Business Value of Digital Transformation – remain competitive, survive and thrive.
    3. Remove infrastructure bottlenecks, particularly as they pertain to storage and data management when using AI, Deep Learning, Cognitive pipelines for use cases across verticals like:
    - EDA / Manufacturing
    - Media and Video Analytics
    - Genomics, Precision medicine
    - Speech Recognition
    - Industrial IoT
    - Financial and Security Analytics
    - Retail Customer Churn / Sentiment Analysis

  • NVMe & Oracle Database: Making Hybrid Transaction/Analytical Processing Possible
    NVMe & Oracle Database: Making Hybrid Transaction/Analytical Processing Possible Ganesh Balabharathi, Principal Database Architect Recorded: Nov 16 2017 38 mins
    Hybrid transaction/analytical processing (HTAP) refers to capabilities to perform OLAP (online analytical processing) and OLTP (online transaction processing) at the same time on a same database system. Oracle Database has always held the edge in HTAP because its version-based concurrency model means that analytical workloads do not block transactional workloads. In this webcast, we will examine how Vexata Scalable Storage Systems utilize technologies such as NVMe Flash and Intel Optane (3D XPoint) can be used to take HTAP to the next level. This webcast will include a demonstration of HTAP running on Oracle 12c with the Vexata VX-100 Scalable Storage System.

    You will learn about:
    - Detailed explanation of Hybrid transactional/analytic environments
    - Best practices for architecting Oracle Hybrid database systems
    - How Vexata maximizes transactional and analytic workloads
  • How to Design SQL Server Infrastructures for Optimal Performance
    How to Design SQL Server Infrastructures for Optimal Performance Matt Henderson, Director of Microsoft Technology Recorded: Oct 19 2017 57 mins
    Successful analytics and transactional systems start with proper architectural principles and considerations. This webinar will be a detailed walkthrough of all the software and hardware infrastructure below the database server. It will explain how each layer affects database workloads as well as give tools and metrics for determining optimal architectural configurations.

    From this webinar you will learn:

    • How to design SQL server infrastructures for optimal performance
    • How the software and hardware infrastructure affect database performance
    • Tools and metrics to determine appropriate hardware allocations. For example, how many CPU cores, data volumes, tempdb files or GBs of memory are needed for your workload.
    • Tools and metrics to find current bottlenecks, inside and outside of the database server
    • Tools and best practices for monitoring all layers

    Presented by Matt Henderson, who has over two decades of experience in designing high-performance database platforms and over five years working with the latest all-flash storage technologies. He currently is the Director of Microsoft Technologies at Vexata where he helps customers optimize and scale their mission-critical databases.
