  • The Future of Solid State The Future of Solid State Randy Kerns, Senior Strategist and Analyst, Evaluator Group Recorded: May 25 2016 45 mins
    The movement away from electro-mechanical devices for primary storage to solid state technology continues. Flash technology has been immensely successful and continues to advance with greater density and less cost. It is also driving changes in the interfaces and protocols for storage from disk-based to memory-based. Additional solid state technology is entering the market and will create a hierarchy of different performance and cost storage. This presentation will discuss some of these changes and their potential impacts.

  • Evolution of iSCSI including iSER, iSCSI over RDMA Ethernet Evolution of iSCSI including iSER, iSCSI over RDMA Ethernet Fred Knight, Standards Technologist, NetApp, Andy Banta, Storage Janitor, SolidFire/NetApp, David Fair, Chair, SNIA-ESF Recorded: May 24 2016 62 mins
    iSCSI is an Internet Protocol standard for transferring SCSI commands across an Ethernet network, enabling hosts to link to storage devices wherever they may be. In this Webcast, we will discuss the evolution of iSCSI including iSER, which is iSCSI technology that takes advantage of various RDMA fabric technologies to enhance performance. Register now to hear:

    •A brief history of iSCSI
    •How iSCSI works
    •IETF refinements to the specification
    •Enhancing iSCSI performance with iSER

    The Webcast will be live, so please bring your questions for our experts.
  • Emerging Technologies in Storage: Disaggregation of Storage Function Emerging Technologies in Storage: Disaggregation of Storage Function Jeff Kato, Taneja Group; Brian Biles, Datrium; Patrick Osborne, HPE; Kevin Fernandez, Nutanix Recorded: May 19 2016 64 mins
    Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss one of the newest trends in storage: Disaggregation of traditional storage functions. A major trend within IT is to leverage server and server-side resources to the maximum extent possible. Hyper-scale architectures have led to the commoditization of servers and flash technology is now ubiquitous and is often times most affordable as a server-side component. Underutilized compute resources exist in many datacenters as the growth in CPU power has outpaced other infrastructure elements. One current hot trend— software-defined-storage—advocates collocating all storage functions to the server side but also relies on local, directly attached storage to create a shared pool of storage. That limits the server’s flexibility in terms of form factor and compute scalability.

    Now some vendors are exploring a new, optimally balanced approach. New forms of storage are emerging that first smartly modularize storage functions, and then intelligently host components in different layers of the infrastructure. With the help of a lively panel of experts we will unpack this topic and explore how their innovative approach to intelligently distributing storage functions can bring about better customer business outcomes.

  • Realising true storage innovation – 3 key tactics Realising true storage innovation – 3 key tactics David McGowan, Principal Consultant, 4sl Recorded: May 19 2016 44 mins
    We are entering rapidly changing times in the storage arena leading to major transformations of traditional SAN based storage environments.

    This webinar will discuss three tactics you can deploy to define an appropriate service framework for the delivery of storage services within your business and allow you to effectively evaluate the technology offerings and operational models now available.
  • Data Center Consolidation and Simplification with Hyper-converged Data Center Consolidation and Simplification with Hyper-converged Sushant Rao, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, DataCore Software Recorded: May 18 2016 38 mins
    Server virtualization was supposed to consolidate and simplify IT infrastructure in data centers. But, that only “sort of happened”. Companies do have fewer servers but they never hit the consolidation ratios they expected. Why? In one word, performance.

    Surveys show that 61% of companies have experienced slow applications after server virtualization with 77% pointing to I/O problems as the culprit.

    Now, with hyper-converged, companies have another opportunity to fulfill their vision of consolidating and reduce the complexity of their infrastructure. But, this will only happen if their applications get the I/O performance they need.

    Join us for this webinar where we will show you how to get industry leading I/O response times and the best price/performance so you can reduce and simplify your infrastructure.
  • Five Benefits to Using SDS for Emerging Docker and Container Initiatives Five Benefits to Using SDS for Emerging Docker and Container Initiatives Rob Whiteley Recorded: May 18 2016 45 mins
    As traditional enterprises look to experiment with emerging Docker use cases, the need to connect containers to persistent data or even just to share data between Docker containers becomes more obvious. However, this expansion has proven to be a challenge for infrastructure that relies on monolithic storage arrays. As a result, enterprises are looking to software-defined storage as a more attractive choice because of its flexibility, programmability and ability to provide well-managed, persistent storage. In this talk, you’ll get:

    • What Docker is and is not, as well as container-specific storage challenges
    • Why you need container-specific storage policies, SLAs, and classes of service (CoS)
    • How to leverage software-defined storage solutions for Docker and containers
    • When to use hyperconverged or hyperscale architectures for your Docker initiatives
  • Playing a Dangerous DR Game? Take Your DR and Backup Plan to the Next Level Playing a Dangerous DR Game? Take Your DR and Backup Plan to the Next Level Lilac Schoenbeck, VP of Product Management & Marketing and Dante Orsini, SVP of Business Development Recorded: May 18 2016 54 mins
    Whether your nemesis is a malicious attack, a hurricane or (more likely) human error, have you collected all the tools you need to triumph and save the day?

    There are a host of technologies available to those prepping for potential business disruptions: backups on-premise, backups in the cloud, on-premise failovers, Disaster Recovery as a Service, and, of course, delivering an offering of cable and silicon to your mainframe every Tuesday at noon.

    Obviously, you don’t need all of these options – but which do you need? And why would you choose one over the other? Join this webinar to learn:
    - What has changed since your tried-and-true backup plan was hatched in 2010
    - How to evaluate on-premise vs. cloud-based options
    - How to marry different technologies to create a complete solution
    - What to consider when selecting a technology or cloud partner

    With 10 years of experience leading the DRaaS and Backup market around the world, we’ve seen a lot of technologies come and go – and have some strong opinions and solid guidance for our customers on how best to evaluate options.
  • The Impact of All-IP Migration on Service Assurance The Impact of All-IP Migration on Service Assurance Dr. Jens Specht, VP Products and Services, Signalhorn Recorded: May 18 2016 29 mins
    Most telcos are in the process of migrating their customers to an all-IP environment. An approach enabling multiple services via a single connection, and thus creates a more efficient network and new services.
    However a single connection failing creates problems of its own. In today’s world an hour off-line can cost a significant amount of money, even for a small business. In our webinar we want to evaluate the risk without dramatizing it and review potential scenarios to mitigate the threat.
    Enabling you to have a meaningful, fact based discussion internally or with your customer.
