  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage-Turquoise: Where Does My Data Go
    Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage-Turquoise: Where Does My Data Go Rob Peglar, Symbolic IO, Scott Shadley, Micron, J Metz, Cisco, Chad Hintz, Cisco Aug 1 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    In this, the seventh entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” popular webcast series we look into the mysticism and magic of what happens when you send your data off into the wilderness. Once you click “save,” for example, where does it actually go?

    When we start to dig deeper beyond the application layer, we often don’t understand what happens behind the scenes. It’s important to understand multiple aspects of the type of storage our data goes to along with their associated benefits and drawbacks as well as some of the protocols used to transport it.

    In this webcast we will show you more about the following:

    •Volatile v Non-Volatile v Persistent Memory
    •NVDIMM v RAM v DRAM v SLC v MLC v TLC v NAND v 3D NAND v Flash v SSDs v NVMe
    •NVMe (the protocol)

    Many people get nervous when they see that many acronyms, but all too often they come up in conversation, and you’re expected to know all of them? Worse, you’re expected to know the differences between them, and the consequences of using them? Even worse, you’re expected to know what happens when you use the wrong one?

    We’re here to help.

    It’s an ambitious project, but these terms and concepts are at the heart of where compute, networking and storage intersect. Having a good grasp of these concepts ties in with which type of storage networking to use, and how data is actually stored behind the scenes.

    Please join us on August 1st for another edition of the “Too Proud To Ask” series, as we work towards making you feel more comfortable in the strange, mystical world of storage.

  • Hybrid & Multi-cloud environments: Strategies for migration & app modernization
    Hybrid & Multi-cloud environments: Strategies for migration & app modernization Shashi Kiran, CMO, Quali, Jay Lyman,Analyst, 451 Research Aug 16 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Hybrid clouds are important for enterprises having on-premise deployments as well as legacy applications. Likewise, multi-cloud scenarios appeal to organizations that want the flexibility to move between different clouds and not get locked-in into either one public or private clouds architecture. While over 70% of enterprises have expressed a need to deploy hybrid and/or multi-cloud architectures, as they modernize their application architectures the rollouts are complex and time consuming causing budget overruns and delays. The complexity is largely associated with the lack of common tooling, mismatched cloud architectures and expertise. These can be significantly overcome by providing access to on-demand, self-service IT environments (on-premise as well as public cloud, or a combination thereof), that would allow for more predictable application performance and security, thereby allowing for faster cloud migration and rollout, with reduced cost and risk.

    Join this webinar with 451 research and Quali to learn:
    •Current trends in hybrid and multi-cloud deployments and enterprise requirements
    •How incorporating sandboxes and self-service environments in the workflow can smoothen cloud migration, hybrid deployments and the flexibility of multi-cloud deployment. Demo included.
    •Sample case study of an enterprise undergoing cloud migration with best practice recommendations
