Fast Data: Are Your Seatbelts Fastened?

Jeff Denworth, VP of Marketing
Learn in this webinar how DDN has raised the performance bar (again) in announcing the SFA 12K(TM) series of scalable storage platforms. The SFA12K product family is a series of systems which have been designed from the ground-up for the next wave of data creation, distribution and processing. With this offering, DDN has established a clear leadership along a number of key dimensions
Big Data Innovation We're now delivering the features that our competitors only dream of having, including our In-Storage Processing™ and Storage Fusion Fabric™. These solutions not only greatly simplify big data storage environments, but also enable applications to excel.

Performance The SFA12K is 2.7 times faster than it's next-closest competitor... and oh by the way, that's our own SFA10K-X. The system is up to 800% faster than competing systems.

Data Center Efficiency The SFA12K can reduce data center requirements and is astonishingly 240% more efficient than competing scale out technology

Engineered Scalability With a focus on managing large scale systems, technologies such as DDN's SATAssure™, ReACT™ and new Quality of Service serve as validation of the ~1M lines of code we've built into our platform that makes managing large data sets easiest with the SFA

  • Build, Buy or Rent? How to implement your optimal cloud storage solution. Recorded: Jul 16 2013 57 mins
    For many companies one of the biggest decisions they will make, or have made, when moving to the cloud will be how they implement their cloud storage infrastructure. Issues around ease of access, uptime, security, redundancy, SLA, maintenance, and total cost of ownership drive the decision to one of three options: build, buy, or rent. This webinar will explore these issues and compare them for the three options helping you optimize your plan for your business needs and growth.

    Please join Forrester Research and DataDirect Networks for this educational webinar to learn about the challenges and solution options for implementing storage in the cloud.
  • Drowning in Data and Starving for Information Recorded: Jan 8 2013 45 mins
    The ability to generate and capture various sensor data, communications, and imagery has grown exponentially, and there does not appear to be any change in sight. To effectively extract the maximum benefit from the deluge of data generated today, analysts need to utilize the new generation of analytical tools and human expertise that is rapidly being developed. When properly utilized, these advances are providing today’s analysts with an unprecedented ability to make real-time data-driven decisions as well as improved options to collaborate and share information. However, effective implementation in the era of hyperscale data depends on the ability to manage conventional system technology, and unpredictable volume requirements. An imbalanced analytics system can result in bottlenecks that reduce the value of analytics tools and the enterprise data warehouses (EDW) that power them. As such, it’s critical for organizations to ensure that at either end of the ingest/egest process they build scalable storage and storage processing technology to complement today’s high-speed data warehousing and data analytics technology. This session will detail how new filing system options and cloud infrastructure can improve the performance of analytics applications utilizing actual benchmark tests, and demonstrate new options to collaborate and share information.
  • Using Big Data Tools to Manage the Deluge of ISR Data Recorded: Oct 19 2012 62 mins
    Big Data challenges and what some of the most data intensive agencies are doing to address it. Topics discussed include:

    How agencies are dealing with unprecedented amounts of data creation and performance requirements;

    How data-driven enterprises are looking at new methods of metadata management to contextualize their assets and gain a richer understanding of their data;

    How cloud tools and infrastructure enable new opportunities to share, collaborate and accelerate decision making across agencies and geographies;
  • Policy-Based Data Management, Integrated Rule Oriented Data Grid (iRODS) Recorded: Oct 12 2012 58 mins
    Higher education institutions around the world are in the process of digitizing, indexing and adding searchable metadata to their digital collections. As these data sets expand to hundreds of millions of immutable objects and petabytes of data, there is a need to consolidate and automate to maximize the value of this capital expenditure.

    The Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System (iRODS) is a popular open source policy-based data management system (application) that enables data sharing, publication and preservation and is also capable of implementing an automated data analysis pipeline. For each type of data management application, policies or rules can be applied that control the execution of procedures that enforce desired collection properties. By evolving the policies, a collection can migrate through the stages of the data life cycle.

    DataDirect Networks - Storage Fusion Architecture is a highly scalable storage platform capable of hosting iRODS in a tightly coupled solution with a RAID controller and parallel file system providing an appliance like solution that can scale to multiple-petabytes in a single name space.
  • How To Build a Rock Solid Lustre Environment Recorded: Sep 20 2012 62 mins
    For large storage systems, the massively parallel open source file system Lustre provides an incredible level of performance, flexibility and scalability. It’s a tested and proved technology that it is currently used by over 60% of the TOP100 supercomputing sites in the world. More high-end systems are coming online all the time.

    However, in practice, Lustre’s known for being a little “hard to use.”

    Interested in the advantages of this powerful filesystem but concerned about day-to-day administration issues? Looking to evaluate the technology but need answers to better evaluate? This one-hour webinar will cover a wide range of issues, but is intended to be open to your questions. What items should you monitor in a Lustre system daily? How do you configure user quotas? How do you automate failover with heartbeat? How do you restore Lustre from file based backups? What are some good tips for tuning Lustre specifically to your environment?

    Whamcloud provides support and training services and lives and breathes Lustre. Whamcloud partners with DataDirect Networks to provide solutions that fix the headaches associated with Lustre administration. Come and find out core tips and tricks in building a rock solid Lustre environment that will work specifically for you and your storage environment.

    This webinar will be led by Zhiqi Tao, Senior System Engineer at Whamcloud, now owned by Intel, and Dr. James Coomer, DDN’s Senior Technical Advisor for EMEA. Thirty minutes will be spent offering some key tips and trick for Lustre administrators. The session will then be opened up to the audience for 30 minutes for questions.
