  • The Five Problems Facing Business-Critical NFS Deployments The Five Problems Facing Business-Critical NFS Deployments George Crump, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Sep 27 2016 61 mins
    VMware, NetApp and even EMC are proponents of using NFS based storage systems to support mission critical workloads like virtual machines, databases and performance sensitive unstructured data. But in comparison to mission critical fibre channel, the tools to monitor and optimize your NFS infrastructure are lacking. In this webinar Storage Switzerland and Virtual Instruments will discuss the five challenges facing IT professionals that depend on NFS-based storage infrastructure for performance-intensive workloads. You will learn how to detect and overcome:

    * Metadata Bottlenecks
    * Rogue Clients & Noisy Neighbor issues
    * Server/VM Latency issues
    * Poor Write Performance
    * Cluster Node Bottlenecks
  • The Problems with NFS on Object Storage The Problems with NFS on Object Storage George Crump, Jonathan Ring Recorded: Sep 26 2016 9 mins
    If object storage is the future of unstructured data storage, NFS is clearly the present. Object storage vendors realize this and provide NFS support. The problem is most of these vendors leverage a NFS gateway to act as the bridge. Gateways create their own problems however, diminishing the value of the object storage investment. In this ChalkTalk video watch as Storage Switzerland’s George Crump and Caringo's Jonathan Ring discuss the ideal way to address NFS on Object shortfalls.
  • The Lies that Software Defined Storage Tell The Lies that Software Defined Storage Tell George Crump, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Sep 22 2016 39 mins
    Software Defined Storage (SDS) is one of the most hyped terms in the industry. It is supposed to break vendor lock-in, allowing the use hardware from any vendor. Yet most data centers buy their storage hardware and storage software from a single vendor. Why? Mostly because software defined storage is answering the questions that IT professionals aren't asking. Join Storage Switzerland Lead Analyst George Crump as he discusses the three lies of SDS:

    1. Software Defined Storage breaks vendor lock-in (no it doesn't)
    2. Hardware doesn't matter with Software Defined Storage (yes it does)
    3. There is a TRUE Software Defined Storage solution (no, there isn't)
  • What Your Object Storage Vendor Isn't Telling You About NFS Support What Your Object Storage Vendor Isn't Telling You About NFS Support George Crump, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Aug 23 2016 61 mins
    NFS has been the “go to” file system for large data stores but there is a new offering on the horizon...Object Storage. To help ease the transition, many Object Storage vendors have provided a gateway that allows their systems to look like NFS servers. The problem is that most of these implementations are very limiting and often create more problems than they fix. In this webinar Storage Switzerland and Caringo will discuss why object storage systems are the heir apparent to NFS servers and how to make that transition without the typical roadblocks that NFS gateways create.

  • Flash Myth: Flash is for Everything vs. Flash is for One Thing Flash Myth: Flash is for Everything vs. Flash is for One Thing George Crump, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Aug 17 2016 62 mins
    Different workloads demand different attributes from their storage. These differences lead some to believe flash storage is only good for certain point use cases like accelerating databases. But the performance of flash systems lead others to claim a single flash system can support all workloads. The truth, as usual, is somewhere in the middle. Join Storage Switzerland and IBM for this live interactive webinar where we bust another flash myth and help you select the right flash for the right workload for the right reasons.

  • What Does Your Next NetApp Refresh Look Like? What Does Your Next NetApp Refresh Look Like? George Crump Recorded: Jul 26 2016 62 mins
    Most organizations making an investment in NetApp Filers count on the system to store user data and host virtual machine datastores from an environment like VMware. In addition these organizations want their NetApp systems to do more and be the repository for the next wave of unstructured data; data generated by machines. NetApp systems are busting at the seams, so these organizations are trying to decide what to do next.

    To help you find out what to do next, join Storage Switzerland and Caringo for our live webinar and learn:

    1. What are the modern unstructured data use cases
    2. The challenges NetApp faces in addressing its customers’ issues
    3. Other solutions; can all-flash or object storage solve these challenges
    4. Making the move - how to migrate from NetApp to other systems
    5. How to re-purpose, instead of replacing your NetApp

  • Live Webinar: Overcoming the Storage Challenges Cassandra and Couchbase Create Live Webinar: Overcoming the Storage Challenges Cassandra and Couchbase Create George Crump, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Jun 30 2016 53 mins
    NoSQL databases like Cassandra and Couchbase are quickly becoming key components of the modern IT infrastructure. But this modernization creates new challenges – especially for storage. Storage in the broad sense. In-memory databases perform well when there is enough memory available. However, when data sets get too large and they need to access storage, application performance degrades dramatically. Moreover, even if enough memory is available, persistent client requests can bring the servers to their knees.

    Join Storage Switzerland and Plexistor where you will learn:

    1. What is Cassandra and Couchbase?
    2. Why organizations are adopting them?
    3. What are the storage challenges they create?
    4. How organizations attempt to workaround these challenges.
    5. How to design a solution to these challenges instead of a workaround.
