  • Multi-cloud Primary Storage: Avoid lock-in while shifting apps to the cloud
    Multi-cloud Primary Storage: Avoid lock-in while shifting apps to the cloud Senior Analysts Jeff Kato and Jeff Byrne Recorded: Nov 15 2017 54 mins
    As the result of extensive primary end-user and multi-vendor research, including responses from 700+ IT decision makers, Taneja Group has learned that an increasing number of organizations are more motivated than ever before to move their applications in the cloud. However, they prefer to easily move those applications between on-premises and multiple clouds without having to modify the underlying storage infrastructure.

    Join us as we unpack this emerging market category along with SoftNAS, one of the vendors at the forefront of this trend.

    In this webinar we’ll cover:

    • How multi-cloud primary storage can span multiple cloud environments and mitigate the risk of moving to the public cloud

    • Lifting and shifting applications to a single public cloud or multiple public clouds without re-engineering the applications

    • Why the SoftNAS Cloud Data Platform enables enterprise on-premises file services to be collocated in public clouds

    About your hosts:
    Taneja Group’s Senior Analysts Jeff Kato and Jeff Byrne will discuss the research behind the Taneja Group’s Multi-Cloud Primary Storage market category. They will be joined by Rick Braddy, Founder, CEO and CTO at SoftNAS, who will describe how the SoftNAS Cloud Data Platform provides the best pathway to shift applications among on-premises, AWS, and Azure clouds.
  • SNIA's New 100-Year Archive Survey: Ten Years Later
    SNIA's New 100-Year Archive Survey: Ten Years Later Thomas Rivera, SNIA-DPCO Co-Chair; Sam Fineberg, SNIA LTR TWG Co-chair; Bob Rogers, CTO, Application Matrix Recorded: Oct 17 2017 60 mins
    Ten years ago, the SNIA 100-Year Archive Task Force developed a survey with the goal to determine the requirements for long-term digital information retention in the data center - requirements needed to frame the definition of best practices and solutions to the retention and preservation problems unique to large,scalable data centers.

    Now in 2017, SNIA presents a new survey developed to assess the following details:

    1. Who needs to retain long term information
    2. What information needs to be retained and for how long
    3. If organizations are able to meet their retention needs
    4. How long term information is stored, secured and preserved

    Join us as we see where we were and where we need to be in the preservation and retention of data.

  • The Blurring of Boundaries in a Software-Defined Data Center
    The Blurring of Boundaries in a Software-Defined Data Center JR Rivers, Co-Founder & CTO, Cumulus Networks Recorded: Aug 17 2017 34 mins
    The software-defined data center has been a heavily touted concept over the past few years, and heralded by some as the next step in the evolution of virtualization and cloud computing. Having a data center that is governed by software, rather than dictated by hardware, can lead to more fully automated and intelligent operations. Having infrastructure elements such as networking, storage and security conceived of as a services is, indeed, an attractive concept to many.

    In this webinar we will be joined by JR Rivers, Co-Founder and CTO of Cumulus Networks, to talk about how he (and Cumulus) define the concept of a software-defined data center. He will present how the definition of a software-defined data center has evolved since its inception, and how tools like VXLAN, EVPN, Ansible and more can help organizations further their journey to a “software-defined” state and simplify network operations.
