  • The goal of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is to lower the operational costs of supporting an organization’s desktops and laptops. A VDI project should make it easier for IT to support users, keep the organization safe from viruses and better protect its data assets. The key to a successful VDI project is user adoption. But while many organizations consider using an All-Flash Array (AFA) to deliver the performance that will lead to user adoption, the problem is AFAs drive up the cost per desktop, increase the vulnerability of the architecture and encourage additional storage silos.

    Join Storage Switzerland and Cloudistics for an informative webinar that will provide an alternative approach that meets user’s performance expectations while leveraging existing – and often already paid for – storage hardware and does not introduce new silos of storage.
  • No registration required - Join Storage Switzerland and Cloudistics as we discuss the storage challenges that VDI creates and discuss if All-Flash is the only way to solve those problems.
  • Join us for our latest SwissCast. This is our 2015 wrap-up and 2016 predictions show. In this special episode we will wrap up the briefings from 2015 that we didn’t get a chance to discuss and make some predictions about 2016. Learn what we think will happen with Dell/EMC, NetApp/SolidFire and Nimble vs. Wall Street. We’ll also discuss which technologies you should take a hard look at this year and which ones should wait until next year.
  • In this interactive webinar we will discuss the storage challenges that VMware creates for IT professionals and how flash-based storage systems can not only help solve storage performance challenges, they can also simplify storage management and increase storage efficiency. We will also speak to Fritz Gielow, IT Administrator with the County of Nevada to discuss how flash has solved their VMware storage problems.
  • The bottleneck in flash storage is often the interface. SAS/SATA interfaces were designed specifically for hard disk drives not for flash media. For example, flash storage can support many more simultaneous I/O operations. The resolution to the problem is to use a different interface, one that is higher throughput and is more directly accessible from the CPU. Leveraging one of these interfaces and extracting optimal performance from the flash media means leaving the confines of the SCSI protocol with customized proprietary drivers. The result is complexity and slow innovation.

    Join Storage Switzerland and OCZ, a Toshiba Group Company, for a live webinar “How NVMe Will Change Flash Storage”. In this webinar we will answer these questions:

    - What is NVMe?
    - Why is NVMe Flash superior to SAS/SATA SSDs?
    - Is NVMe Flash superior to proprietary PCIe flash drives?
    - How to get started with NVMe?
  • Join Storage Switzerland and OCZ for a preview of our upcoming webinar "Why NVMe is Critical for Flash Storage".
  • Join us for our Storage Update. Each update covers the latest news, provides technical education, gives our opinion on the latest trends in storage, updates you on the latest briefings we've attended, and, of course, take questions and comments from our audience. We'll cover everything you need to know in 30 minutes but we will leave the line open for an hour to take in questions. No registration is required, simply tune in to get your 30 minute storage update or hang around for the full hour for the interactive Q&A.
  • As Disaster Recovery pressures mount businesses of all sizes are looking to the cloud to solve their recovery challenges, but can the cloud be counted on when the business needs it most? Join George Crump, Lead Analyst with Storage Switzerland in this interactive webinar as he covers the different types of cloud backup solutions available, the types of disaster recovery solutions and provides an economic model to help businesses determine if the cloud is worth it. As always, we will leave plenty of time at the end of the webinar for Questions and Answers.

    All attendees will receive an exclusive copy of George’s latest white paper “Cloud DR Economics - Can You Cost Justify it?”. This paper is not available anywhere else; you must register to get your copy.
  • Backup, unless you are focused on it, is hard. Enterprises of all sizes are looking to outsource the problem child to someone that can babysit it. MSPs are in an excellent position to not only assist organizations but grow their businesses. But selecting a cloud backup solution on which to standardize on is a critical process for MSP decision makers. There are unique business and technology considerations to understand before selecting a product. In this webinar Storage Switzerland and Asigra will walk MSP executives through those decisions.

    1.The Importance of Selecting a Comprehensive Product to Lower TCO
    2.The Importance of Starting Fast, both as a business and technically
    3.The Importance of Adding Value, to achieve Trusted Advisor status

    The live event is on September 16th at 1 pm ET and 10 AM PT. It will be available on-demand to registrants anytime after that. Pre-register today and receive Storage Switzerland’s latest white paper “Technical Considerations for adding a Cloud Backup Service to your MSP Portfolio” and our product analysis on Asigra’s latest product “Asigra Converged Data Protection Appliance for Managed Service Providers”.
  • Up until the past year or two, High-Performance Compute (HPC) environments and the enterprise data center have been separate domains. But now the data-intensive demands of analytics, migrations to cloud infrastructures and ever growing numbers of users looking to store large quantities of data are making the enterprise data center demand high-performance and scalability previously common only in HPC and Web provider environments. Not only are companies implementing HPC specific jobs like Big Data Analytics and geographic data distribution but virtualized and database environments are being challenged to increase density to support more users at lower operational costs. Should the traditional data center look at HPC storage solutions to meet these demands?

    Join Storage Switzerland and Data Direct Networks (DDN) to learn five reasons HPC storage is ideal for enterprises. In this webinar we will compare the needs of the enterprise data center to the capabilities of HPC storage to see if HPC is the ideal fit for the enterprise.
