  • A Whole New World: Machine-Generated Data and Massive Scale-Out NAS A Whole New World: Machine-Generated Data and Massive Scale-Out NAS Jeff Kato, Taneja Group, Jeff Cobb, Qumulo, Nick Rathke, SCI Recorded: Nov 30 2016 60 mins
    Computer users aren’t top data producers anymore. Machines are. Raw data from sensors, labs, forensics, and exploration are surging into data centers and overwhelming traditional storage. There is a solution: High performance, massively scale-out NAS with data-aware intelligence. Join us as Jeff Cobb, VP of Product Management at Qumulo and Taneja Group Senior Analyst Jeff Kato explain Qumulo’s data-aware scale-out NAS and its seismic shift in storing and processing machine data. We will review how customers are using Qumulo Core, and Nick Rathke of the University of Utah’s Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute will join us to share how SCI uses Qumulo to cut raw image processing from months to days.

  • Data Protection in the Era of Hyperconvergence Data Protection in the Era of Hyperconvergence Jim Whalen, Taneja Group; Patrick Rogers, Cohesity; Jesse St Laurent, SimpliVity; Joe Noonan, Unitrends; Rick Vanover, Veeam Recorded: Aug 17 2016 61 mins
    Hyperconvergence is a rapidly growing and evolving force in the IT infrastructure space. Emerging from the factory pre-configured racking programs of the big IT equipment suppliers, it quickly morphed into a variety of VM-centric architectures where compute, storage and networking (and more) are all integrated below the hypervisor and provide a unified platform to run virtual workloads on. The questions surrounding Data Protection are many: Is a DP mechanism even needed in a distributed cluster architecture that hyperconverged platforms typically drive? What’s the role of traditional backup software and appliances? Is physical server backup still important? What’s the optimum solution for backing up a hyperconverged platform? Is there an optimum solution?

    In this presentation, some of today’s leading vendors will give their take on what the intersection of Hyperconvergence and Data Protection means for the end user.

    PANELISTS:
    * Cohesity - Patrick Rogers, VP Marketing & Product Management
    * SimpliVity - Jesse St Laurent, VP of Product Strategy
    * Unitrends - Joe Noonan, Director, Software Product Management
    * Veeam - Rick Vanover, Director of Technical Product Marketing
  • Emerging Technologies in Storage: Disaggregation of Storage Function Emerging Technologies in Storage: Disaggregation of Storage Function Jeff Kato, Taneja Group; Brian Biles, Datrium; Patrick Osborne, HPE; Kevin Fernandez, Nutanix Recorded: May 19 2016 64 mins
    Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss one of the newest trends in storage: Disaggregation of traditional storage functions. A major trend within IT is to leverage server and server-side resources to the maximum extent possible. Hyper-scale architectures have led to the commoditization of servers and flash technology is now ubiquitous and is often times most affordable as a server-side component. Underutilized compute resources exist in many datacenters as the growth in CPU power has outpaced other infrastructure elements. One current hot trend— software-defined-storage—advocates collocating all storage functions to the server side but also relies on local, directly attached storage to create a shared pool of storage. That limits the server’s flexibility in terms of form factor and compute scalability.

    Now some vendors are exploring a new, optimally balanced approach. New forms of storage are emerging that first smartly modularize storage functions, and then intelligently host components in different layers of the infrastructure. With the help of a lively panel of experts we will unpack this topic and explore how their innovative approach to intelligently distributing storage functions can bring about better customer business outcomes.

  • New Rules for Recovery: Setting Expectations for Today's Continuity Platforms New Rules for Recovery: Setting Expectations for Today's Continuity Platforms Jim Whalen, Taneja Group; Dave LeClair, Unitrends Recorded: May 4 2016 47 mins
    Traditionally, when people talk about data protection, they’re talking about some form of backup. However, if those backups effectively end up in a “write-only memory”, they’re not much good. So really, the bottom line is recovery is what people are most concerned about when they talk about data protection. With the degree to which today’s technologies have been refined and the plethora of data protection platforms available, users should maintain a baseline set of simple expectations to be met no matter who or what they choose for the job. In this presentation, Taneja Group and Dave LeClair of Unitrends will discuss the “New Rules for Recovery” that everyone’s solution should adhere to.
  • Practical Datacenter IT For The Deluge of IoT Practical Datacenter IT For The Deluge of IoT Mike Matchett, Sr. Analyst & Consultant, Taneja Group Recorded: Apr 20 2016 37 mins
    Come join Senior Analyst Mike Matchett's lively discussion about the concerns and challenges coming when the Internet of Things crashes into our enterprise datacenters. We think big data today is big, but future IoT data streams promise to swamp everything from servers to storage. And today's new big data applications will still need to become more real-time, more agile, distributed and even more scalable. What's coming down the road, and how should we start planning for the future today?
