  • How To Design High Performance, Cost Effective Splunk Storage How To Design High Performance, Cost Effective Splunk Storage George Crump, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Jan 12 2017 57 mins
    Splunk does an excellent job of managing data, moving data between tiers which it calls buckets. But assigning Splunk to data management tasks takes compute power away from the primary objective — rapid data analysis. In this live webinar Storage Switzerland and Tegile will discuss how the default Splunk architecture works today, what the challenges with that architecture are and how to design a storage architecture for Splunk that is both high performance and cost effective.
  • The Art of Storage Management The Art of Storage Management George Crump, Curtis Preston Recorded: Dec 15 2016 62 mins
    Any organization that takes a moment to study the data on their primary storage system will quickly realize that the majority (as much as 90 percent) of data that is stored on it has not been accessed for months if not years. Moving this data to a secondary tier of storage could free up massive amount of capacity, eliminating a storage upgrade for years. Making this analysis frequently is called data management, and proper management of data can not only reduce costs it can improve data protection, retention and preservation.
  • Proving It! A step by step Demo: Containerizing Legacy Applications Proving It! A step by step Demo: Containerizing Legacy Applications George Crump, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Dec 14 2016 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland and HyperGrid recently held a webinar entitled "How and Why to Containerize Your Legacy Applications.”. It is one of our highest attended webinars this year. The number one request from that webinar? "I want to see this thing work!" To answer that request Storage Switzerland and HyperGrid are conducting another webinar where we will review how to containerize legacy applications, provide a couple of specific examples of how customers are using and benefiting from containerized legacy applications and, most importantly, have a live demo showing a legacy application’s transformation into a modern, containerized application.
  • End NAS Sprawl - Gain Control Over Unstructured Data End NAS Sprawl - Gain Control Over Unstructured Data George Crump, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Dec 13 2016 60 mins
    The key to ending NAS Sprawl is to fix the file system so it can offer cost effective, scalable, high performance storage. In this live webinar Storage Switzerland Lead Analyst George Crump, Quantum VP of Global Marketing Molly Rector, and the Quantum StorNext Solution Marketing Senior Director Dave Frederick discuss the challenges facing the typical scale-out storage environment and what IT professionals should be looking for in solutions to eliminate NAS Sprawl once and for all.

    In this webinar learn:

    1. What's Causing NAS Sprawl
    2. How Vendors are putting bandaids on the problem
    3. What to look for in a unifying file system
  • How Viable is Google ColdLine Cloud Storage? How Viable is Google ColdLine Cloud Storage? Curtis Preston, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Dec 8 2016 62 mins
    Google has recently announced expansion of their cloud storage service. It offers similar service levels as Amazon S-3 and Glacier, but with simplified pricing. How viable is their cloud storage product for the average customer? How do their service levels compare to Amazon and Azure service levels? What about pricing? Is it really that different? And what are some example use cases?

    Other questions center around applications that support these offerings. If an application supports Amazon, will it be easy for them to support Google? Is there anything about Google cloud storage that makes it easier or harder for service providers to work with them?
  • Preserve, Distribute and Deliver - M&E's Three Biggest Data Challenges Preserve, Distribute and Deliver - M&E's Three Biggest Data Challenges George Crump, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Dec 1 2016 63 mins
    In this webinar Storage Switzerland and Caringo, providers of cloud and object storage, will discuss why preservation, distribution and delivery is so critical for M&E IT and also why it is so challenging to deliver. More importantly, we will discuss practical solutions to these challenges so IT departments can lead their organizations to more monetization opportunities.
  • The Bifurcation of the Flash Market The Bifurcation of the Flash Market George Crump, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Nov 30 2016 62 mins
    High Performance or Capacity - Making the Right Choice

    The flash market started out monolithically. Flash was a single media type (high performance, high endurance SLC flash). Flash systems also had a single purpose of accelerating the response time of high-end databases. But now there are several flash options. Users can choose between high performance flash or highly dense, medium performance flash systems. At the same time, high capacity hard disk drives are making a case to be the archival storage medium of choice. How does an IT professional choose?
  • Pros and Cons of Cloud Backup Pros and Cons of Cloud Backup Curtis Preston, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Nov 17 2016 43 mins
    Before we had what we now call the cloud, there were services we now call cloud backup services that had been backing up other people’s data over the Internet for several years. Technology has come a long way and many more people are now considering backing up their data to the cloud, and they find themselves asking a number of questions.

    Just how much data can you backup to the cloud? How does a cloud backup vendor handle large restores? Will it take weeks to restore my data? What about security? Does it make financial sense to backup to the cloud, or is it just en vogue to do so? Could I actually save money by backing up to the cloud.
  • Modern Storage Infrastructures for Modernized Data Centers Modern Storage Infrastructures for Modernized Data Centers George Crump, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Nov 17 2016 61 mins
    Join Storage Switzerland, Micron and Nexenta for our live webinar "Modern Storage Infrastructures for Modernized Data Centers". We will discuss:

    * How organizations are leveraging OpenStack, Docker, Splunk and Hadoop to make data centers more agile and competitive
    * How default storage architectures limit the potential of modern applications
    * How storage needs to change to deliver performance, scaleability and flexibility
    * How a modern storage architecture can propel modern applications into new use cases
  • Does Object Storage Make Sense for Backups? Does Object Storage Make Sense for Backups? Curtis Preston, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Nov 17 2016 61 mins
    Everyone understands disk has become the primary target for backups in the last several years. It’s also safe to say that the main type of disk storage used as a target for backups would be a purpose-built backup appliance that presents itself to the backup application as an NFS or SMB server and then deduplicates any backups stored on it.

    But what about object storage? Object storage vendors tout that their systems are less expensive to buy and less expensive to operate than traditional disk arrays and NAS appliances. So, does it make sense to use them for backups? How much is deduplication a factor and is deduplication even available with object storage? What else can object storage bring to the table that traditional disk backup appliances can’t?
