    15 Minute Friday: Design Cloud Storage for the Data Center, the Edge, and Cloud
    Storage Switzerland, ClearSky Data Recorded: Jan 18 2019 15 mins
    When most vendors talk about solving an organization’s storage problems, they typically are talking about solving their challenges in one of three categories: the data center, the edge or the cloud. The reality is that even within these three categories, most vendors only solve one of several problems: primary storage, secondary storage, archive storage or backup storage. IT needs a solution that can address not only all the categories of storage but also the types of storage within them.

    Join Storage Switzerland and ClearSky to learn:

    - The storage and data protection demand on the data center, the edge, and the cloud
    - Why traditional data center, edge and cloud storage and data protection solutions fall short
    - How to design an architecture that integrates data center, edge and cloud storage architectures and solves the storage and data protection problem

  • How to Put an End to Hyperconverged Silos
    How to Put an End to Hyperconverged Silos
    Storage Switzerland, Axellio Inc. Recorded: Jan 17 2019 62 mins
    Hyperconverged Infrastructure is supposed to simplify the data center by creating an environment that automatically scales as new applications and workloads are added to it. The problem is that the current generation of HCI solutions can only address specific use cases like virtual desktops or tier 2 applications. First generation HCI solutions don’t have the per node power to accommodate enterprise workloads and tier 1 applications. The organization needs a next generation HCI solution, HCI 2.0, that can address HCI 1.0 shortcomings and fulfill the original promises of HCI; Lower costs, faster innovation, simpler scale, single vendor and unified management. The combination enables HCI 2.0 to handle a variety of storage intensive workloads.
  • Employing Users as Your Quality Control
    Employing Users as Your Quality Control
    Josh Bartolomie, Dir, Res & Dev, Cofense; Sharon Smith, Fndr, C-Suite Results; Theresa Frommel, Act Dep CISO, State of MO Recorded: Jan 17 2019 58 mins
    Process automation delivers a lot of promises. A car can be assembled in less than a day and vegetables can go from vine to can in hours. Sensors look for obvious flaws, but at points in the production process there is human oversight in the form of quality control. The same holds true for protecting against phishing threats. Automation can help weed out some of the bad stuff, but bad actors and new threats constantly outsmart the latest sensors. Join Cofense and (ISC)2 on January 17, 2019 at 1:00PM Eastern for a panel discussion examining strategies on how to enable your workforce to be quality control when it comes to malicious emails to know when something isn’t right and what to do when they see something.

  • The Top 3 Considerations for Modernizing Your Data Platform
    The Top 3 Considerations for Modernizing Your Data Platform
    Clark Bradley, Solutions Engineer at Zaloni Recorded: Jan 16 2019 50 mins
    How does your organization collaborate with data? Aligning data management tasks across any size organization can be a challenge. This can be attributed to a lack of transparent data access, lack of big data skills, or antiquated toolsets that do not enable shared metadata for clear lineage of the data. Regardless of the reason, the results are slow, rigid decision-making processes.

    While modernizing your data architecture for more agility can seem overwhelming, with an integrated platform that enhances collaboration, organizations can reap the benefits of quality data that is well understood. The data platform should provide users with the ability to fully understand all aspects of the data with a simple, unified user interface where the business and IT can define, transform and provision the data. All while providing right-sized governance for access, security and auditability.

    Join Clark Bradley, Solutions Engineer with Zaloni, as he tackles modernizing your data platform and explains how your organization can expand collaborative practices with the Zaloni Data Platform.

    By the end of the presentation, you’ll be able to answer these questions:
    - Why is a data catalog important?
    - What do I need to know about data quality?
    - How does self-service play a role in the data strategy?
  • Understanding the 5 Most Common Oversights in a DRaaS Strategy
    Understanding the 5 Most Common Oversights in a DRaaS Strategy
    Storage Switzerland, KeepItSafe, Veeam Recorded: Jan 16 2019 56 mins
    Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is potentially one of the best use cases for cloud resources. DR sites owned by the organization are expensive to set up and maintain as well as challenging to get to when a disaster strikes. DRaaS resolves these issues by creating an on-demand DR site where the cloud delivers IT resources as they are needed. IT planners though, may overlook some aspects of DRaaS solutions, especially when using the large public cloud providers.

    In this webinar join Storage Switzerland, Veeam and KeepItSafe where we leverage a panel of backup and recovery veterans to identify common oversights seen in organizations’ DRaaS strategies and how to address them.

    What NVMe™/TCP Means for Networked Storage
    Sagi Grimberg, Lightbits; J Metz, Cisco; Tom Reu, Chelsio Jan 22 2019 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    In the storage world, NVMe™ is arguably the hottest thing going right now. Go to any storage conference – either vendor- or vendor-neutral, and you’ll see NVMe as the latest and greatest innovation. It stands to reason, then, that when you want to run NVMe over a network, you need to understand NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF).

    TCP – the long-standing mainstay of networking – is the newest transport technology to be approved by the NVM Express organization. This can mean really good things for storage and storage networking – but what are the tradeoffs?

    In this webinar, the lead author of the NVMe/TCP specification, Sagi Grimberg, and J Metz, member of the SNIA and NVMe Boards of Directors, will discuss:
    •What is NVMe/TCP
    •How NVMe/TCP works
    •What are the trade-offs?
    •What should network administrators know?

    The IT environment is rapidly changing, becoming more distributed and complex as organizations transform themselves to provide better digital experiences. Because these improved experiences will be more dependent on the network, it’s imperative for organizations to properly plan and prepare now to eliminate security blind spots. The bottom line is that companies need complete visibility into their physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure to detect and contain data breaches and mitigate risk.

    To accomplish this, successful organizations resist the legacy mentality that relies on more people and more tools at every location. Instead, they are turning to a new architectural approach that disaggregates the speed of the network from the speed of the tools inspecting traffic on that network. This innovative approach allows enterprises to absorb change in network speed and technology without compromising security.

    ESG believes the foundational step in this approach is to ensure comprehensive infrastructure visibility across data centers and distributed edge and cloud environments. To do this, organizations must have a common distributed data services layer that can collect, process and distribute the right information to the right tools at the right time.

    Join us to learn how a consolidated network architecture that includes security delivers better visibility, reduces complexity and increases tool efficiency.
  • The Software-Defined Data Center: A Foundation for Digital Transformation
    The Software-Defined Data Center: A Foundation for Digital Transformation
    David Hines, Vice President of Architecture and Engineering - TierPoint Jan 22 2019 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    As reported in Forbes last year, 73% of companies are planning to move to a fully software-defined data center within two years.

    A software-defined data center is based on a virtualized environment of compute, storage, networking and security in conjunction with policy-based management and automation. The evolution from a traditional data center architecture to one that is software-defined can take months if not years but can yield immense benefits for the business.

    Join us for a discussion on the progress toward the fully software-defined data center, including benefits of infrastructure as code and overcoming challenges associated with traditional workflows.

    You’re under immense pressure for digital transformation. Moving to the cloud presents new possibilities: but the security of your data and apps is critical. It’s not all plain sailing because the cloud requires a fundamentally different approach to security. If you dig your heels in, you’ll find that Shadow IT increases and people will circumvent you. It’s also increasingly difficult to keep an eye on your entire network, so you’ll need to continually reassess where you’re most exposed.

    In this webinar, live from the studio, you’ll discover how to:
    - Create a security strategy that works as an enabler to support your cloud migration, not a separate work stream or standalone function
    - Take steps to protect your new cloud infrastructure as well as your legacy network
    - Avoid certain pitfalls when it comes to cloud migration that could open up new vulnerabilities and threats
