Server virtualization has driven a radically more efficient computing paradigm, enabling IT organizations to deploy business-enabling applications like mobility, social media, the Internet of Things, big data and collaboration at lightning speed. In the midst of this proliferation of applications and explosion of data, storage costs, complexity, and risk have increased at an unprecedented rate – until now.
What if you could have a single storage architecture that enables you to:
Eliminate the cost and complexity of managing silos of storage
Facilitate different service levels for different workloads on the fly
Realize the full benefit of storage consolidation
Would we have your attention?
Join us for a live webinar with guest analyst Richard Fichera of Forrester Research on the future of storage consolidation, and learn how the Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash platform can fuel gains in business responsiveness and agility.
The growth of data has put a strain on data center performance and efficiency.

Join Pete McCallum and Steve Algrhim, long-time infrastructure architects, for a frank discussion on the changing face of storage networking and design. “Storage networking” implies both the interconnected nature of storage resources and their need to communicate over varied distances and topologies. Designing a storage network for a datacenter is a concept usually reserved for greenfield deployments. This is extremely rare as most datacenters, if not all, are already running well-established storage environments and network infrastructures.
In this session, Pete and Steve will run through their past experiences and customer stories to help define the present and future state of storage and the role it plays in infrastructure design. Topics will range from:
- greenfield versus brownfield deployment strategies
- how disaster recovery has evolved into business continuity
- how the software application layer is changing how we perceive storage

Dr. Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist, Strategic Innovation Group, Booz Allen Hamilton
Data preparation is occasionally referred to as data plumbing, suggesting that it is dirty grunge work that is an unglamorous necessity. We will see how this point of view misses entirely the discovery potential, value, and “thrill of the chase” that data preparation can offer. Data prep includes the all important first step in any analytics project: “Know Thy Data” (which is one of the fundamental principles of data science). We discuss data profiling, data transformations and normalization, feature selection and engineering, and more data prep approaches that empower you to begin learning from your data right out of the “starting gate” on your analytics project. Learning from Data (i.e., data science) doesn’t begin after data prep, but right from the start.
