The Briefing Room with Dez Blanchfield and HPE Big Data
When you know better, you do better. That's a perfect mantra for the data-driven enterprise. Understanding what's happening anywhere in your company's purview opens doors to innovation, excellence and profit. Today, a confluence of next-generation technologies enables this kind of synergy. Analytics can be done anywhere, with data sets that are increasingly accessible and valuable.
Register for this episode of The Briefing Room to hear Data Scientist Dez Blanchfield explain the sea change taking place now in the world of enterprise analytics. He'll demonstrate how open-source technologies like Apache Kafka can be combined with proven analytical databases to create a new world of possibilities. He'll briefed by Ben Vandiver of HPE Big Data, who will showcase his company's time-tested Vertica platform for deep analytics.
In retail, understanding which products will be hits or misses requires constant data collection and sharing among suppliers, retail stores, the wholesale business, and dotcoms. But even with open collaboration and cooperation, how can retailers collect varying data sources from each link in the omnichannel chain, run high-performance analytics, and visualize those results to truly understand buyer behavior?
Join Sky I.T. Group, leaders in multi-source point-of-sale data collection, validation and analytics, as they share how their SKYPAD solution enables retailers and wholesalers to gain rapid insight into consumer sales trends. Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Qlik will also share how their underlying technologies -- the HPE Vertica Analytics Platform and QlikView data visualization – power the SKYPAD solution to capture more business and deliver these dramatic improvements over SKY I.T. Group’s former database platform:
•70% reduction in time to load various forms of data
•90% reduction in disk storage
•50 to 500 times faster query and report execution
•Zero system downtime or "batch windows" needed
•Significant reduction in total cost of ownership
•Fast implementation that leverages existing database knowledge
Does your storage system scale as you grow?
Should you go with scale-up or scale-out architecture?
Which hybrid scale-out NAS is right for you?
Netapp, EMC Isilon, Panasas, Lustre - which one is the best fit for you?
In this on-demand webinar, Panasas's Andre Franklin, Sr. Product Marketing Manager presents on:
- Scale and Scalability
- Scale-up vs. Scale-out
- Measuring Scalability
High Availability doesn’t trump Disaster Recovery and there is nothing simple about creating a recovery capability for your business – unless you have a set of data protection and business continuity services that can be applied intelligently to your workload, managed centrally, and tested non-disruptively. The good news is that developing such a capability, which traditionally required the challenge of selecting among multiple point product solutions then struggling to fit them into a coherent disaster prevention and recovery framework, just got a lot easier.
Join us and learn how DataCore’s Software-Defined Storage platform provides the tools you need and a service management methodology you require to build a fully functional recovery strategy at a cost you can afford.

The IT industry has made tremendous progress innovating up and down the computing stack to enable and take advantage of non-volatile memory (NVM). But questions still remain on where NVM plays in the memory stack, how it will evolve in the CPU architecture, and where operating systems will need to be enhanced. Join the SNIA NVDIMM Special Interest Group to learn about the latest developments in NVDIMM, understand how the SNIA NVM Programming Model can be applied in NVM development work, and find your NVM answers!
As IT managers roll out new applications or upgrade existing systems, it's important that they have a keen understanding of the latest advancements in storage technology so they can recommend the best approach.
In this session, you’ll learn about the latest storage architectures (flash caching, server-side PCIe flash, hybrid, and all-flash) and the pros and cons for each. We’ll also discuss how a well-designed infrastructure can drive IT efficiencies and deliver high availability while meeting your performance SLAs.
In this presentation, learn how you can accelerate the optimization of physical infrastructure, engage vertical system manufactures, distributed customer computing power, create robust networking, and do all of the above in a secure and simple way with the help of Intel® hardware, security software from Clavister, and virtualization.
In today's age of connected devices and 24-hour operations, Data Analytics is a big deal. Every business--big or small--is working on setting up the right infrastructure and software for their data so that the right insights can be gained in a timely manner. Businesses who are able to master this requirement are reaping significant advantages, including an edge over theircompetitors.
Research shows that more data resides at the edge than in the data center.
Join us to learn:
-Trends in mobility and mobile worker demands
-Pros and cons of various approaches
-How to meet the needs of today's mobile enterprise
Do Small to Medium Sized Businesses even need archiving, or is it something only for large enterprises? W. Curtis Preston seems to believe pretty strongly that almost any company needs archiving, and he'll explain why in this webinar.
The more business you do, the more data spreads throughout your branch and remote offices, increasing the risk of data loss. IT teams need to be prepared with a proactive disaster recovery (DR) strategy. Today, that means incorporating data deduplication for capacity optimization and faster recovery.
Join us to learn how global deduplication and high availability (HA) streamline and enhance recovery in multiple location infrastructures. This webinar will feature renowned storage expert/blogger W. Curtis Preston and FalconStor's Director of Product Marketing, Mike DiMeglio.
Topics of discussion will include:
-The connection between data deduplication and business continuity
-Choosing the right deduplication solution
-Capacity optimization as the foundation of multi-tier recovery
-How to centrally manage DR and deduplication across your IT infrastructure
-Benefits of global deduplication, including extended data retention, faster local restore, easier archiving, and a smoother transition to cloud-based storage and DR
Learn about the latest trends in high performance, scalable storage for virtualization from independent IT analyst, Stephen Foskett, and hear how Fusion-io technology combined with the award-winning Nutanix converged compute + storage architecture is enabling virtualization without a SAN for greater simplicity with 10x price/performance of traditional server and storage architectures.
