  • 451 Research & Gemalto Present "Alphabet Soup: Deciphering Multi-Cloud Security
    451 Research & Gemalto Present "Alphabet Soup: Deciphering Multi-Cloud Security Eric Hanselman, Chief Analyst at 451 Research and Michael Gardiner, Security Lead for CTO office, Gemalto Recorded: Oct 19 2017 57 mins
    The cloud provides organizations with elasticity and speed and by 2018 60% of an enterprises’ workloads will run in the cloud says 451 Research. The amount of business operations running in the cloud means organizations have more cloud computing service providers, with a typical enterprise having roughly six. This requires companies to develop and implement a multi-cloud strategy, especially when it comes to security. But each CSP has its own security offerings and integrations sometimes making the process confusing and complex. Even prior to the cloud, encryption and key management have presented challenges for many organizations, but with encryption becoming ubiquitous – a strong key management strategy is key. This is especially important with industry mandates and government regulations like European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and U.S state data breach disclosure laws.

    In this joint webinar with 451 Research, we will cover topics including:

    -Building a multi-cloud security strategy for encryption and key management
    -Best practices, benefits and pitfalls of managing your own security
    -Impact of regulations on data protection in the next few years
    -Understanding the different CSP requirements for key management:
    oCustomer-Supplied Encryption Key (CSEK)
    oBring Your Own Key (BYOK)
    oHold Your own Key (HYOK)
    oGeneral cloud service provider key management services overview

    Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss the latest—and potentially most game-changing—technology disruptors to traditional storage architectures since flash: NVMe over fabric and Storage Class Memory.

    It was just five years ago that Flash technology transformed the traditional storage market forever. Modern flash-first arrays are now the new normal for traditional storage. Will a new shared storage access protocol called NVM express over Fabric (NVMe-oF) combined with the advent of storage class memory (SCM) be equally disruptive to traditional storage over the next five years as NAND flash technology was in the past?

    Vendors are now announcing new products and future architectures to enable them to support these new technologies. With the help of a lively panel of experts from HPE, Pivot3, and Mellanox, we will unpack this topic and explore how their innovative approaches to leveraging Storage Class Memory and NVMe-oF can radically improve storage products and solutions.

  • Cloudify Your On Premises Data Storage
    Cloudify Your On Premises Data Storage Rob Commins, Sr. Director, Product Marketing at Tegile Systems, a Western Digital Company Recorded: Oct 17 2017 21 mins
    CFOs rejoice! CEOs take to the streets in celebration! Ok, maybe it’s not quite that exciting, but did you know that you can get the best of both worlds in storage? One of the biggest challenges in storage has been paying for it. Thanks to trying to plan for exactly how much storage you need right now versus how much you need in the future, people often just overbuy with the expensive hopes that they’ll grow into it.

    You actually have a whole lot of financing options at your disposal to pay for storage, from buying to leasing to simply paying for what you use, just like the cloud. Why pay for storage that you’re never going to actually use?

    And, what happens when your storage gets too old? You buy new. What if you didn’t have to? What if you could pay a bit more in maintenance on your current system in exchange for an upgrade when the time comes?

    Join Rob Commins, Sr. Director of Product Marketing for Tegile Systems, as he takes a deep dive into:

    - Best practices for storing your data in the cloud
    - How to keep cloud storage costs to a minimum
    - How to scale data growth and storage capacity

    Speaker Bio:

    Rob Commins has been instrumental in the success of some of the storage industry's most interesting companies over the past twenty years including HP/3PAR, Pillar Data Systems, and StorageWay. At Western Digital, he leads the Data Center System's business unit's product marketing team.
