  • How to “Future Proof” Data Protection for Organizational Resilience
    How to “Future Proof” Data Protection for Organizational Resilience Storage Switzerland, Carbonite Recorded: Apr 27 2017 61 mins
    Users expectations of IT's ability to return mission critical applications to production are higher than ever. These expectations are leading IT to abandon many of their backup and recovery solutions to try new, unproven solutions that may or may not solve the problem. In either case, the organization wasted its investment in the first solution for the unknown potential of a new solution. User expectations are certain to get higher, so this cycle will likely repeat itself. IT needs a new strategy, one that will meet the current expectations of users and pave the way for true organizational resilience.

  • Parallel Computing meets Parallel I/O
    Parallel Computing meets Parallel I/O Augie Gonzalez, Director Product Marketing, DataCore Software Recorded: Apr 26 2017 29 mins
    Many of us responsible for large scale OLTP systems confront two clashing phenomena:
    •Data comes at us at increasingly higher rates (from an expanding number of sources)
    •The time required to process and analyze those inputs is rapidly shrinking.

    Blame it on the Internet of Things (IoT)!

    Instinctively, we respond with two approaches. First, we search for hardware and software that speed up the process.
    Then, we try breaking up the problem into smaller parallel efforts.

    In this webinar you will learn to:
    •Look for choke points that get in the way of executing concurrent transactions
    (Hint: they hide where you don’t suspect)
    •Recognize the consequences those choke points have on competing workloads

  • How Scale-Out Storage Enables the Next Frontier of Life Sciences Breakthroughs
    How Scale-Out Storage Enables the Next Frontier of Life Sciences Breakthroughs Joel Groen & Dave Kaminsky Recorded: Apr 26 2017 17 mins
    Workflows in life sciences and bioinformatics are characterized by massive volumes of machine-generated file data that is pipelined into downstream processes for analysis. With today’s sequencer technology, most experts agree that about 100 GB of data is generated for each human genome that is sequenced.

    With the Earth’s population predicted to eclipse 8 billion people by 2025, some researchers believe that Life Sciences and Genomics in particular will soon become the single largest producer of new data across all media types — outpacing today’s leaders like YouTube, Twitter, and astronomical research.

    Legacy file storage fails to provide researchers with acceptable performance and cost effectiveness at petabyte scale, especially with the wide mix of file sizes that characterizes modern research workflows.

    But it’s not all bad news.

    Balancing researcher, IT, and executive team concerns, watch this video case study about the Department of Embryology at the Carnegie Institution for Science, and see why they turned to Qumulo’s modern scale-out storage to deliver the performance, scalability, and simplicity needed to keep pace with evolving research data requirements.

  • IP-Based Object Drives Now Have a Management Standard
    IP-Based Object Drives Now Have a Management Standard Erik Riedel, Dell EMC, Enrico Signoretti, OpenIO, David Slik, NetApp, Alex McDonald, NetApp Recorded: Apr 20 2017 59 mins
    The growing popularity of object-based storage has resulted in the development of Ethernet-connected storage devices, herein referred to as IP-Based Drives and subsystems supporting object interfaces and in some cases the ability to run localized applications.
    Typical scale-out storage nodes consist of relatively inexpensive enclosures with IP network connectivity, CPU, Memory and Direct Attached Storage (DAS). While inexpensive to deploy, these solutions become harder to manage over time.
    To ease management of these drives, SNIA has approved the release of the IP-Based Drive Management Specification. In this webcast, you’ll hear from authors of the specification who’ll discuss:

    • Major Components of the IP Based Drive Management Standard
    • How the standard leverages the DMTF Redfish management standard to manage Kinetic and other IP-Based Drives
    • Providing a standard management interface for drives that are part of JBOD or JBOF enclosures

    This standard allows drive management to scale to datacenters and beyond, enabling automation and Software Defined Datacenters. Join this webcast on April 20th to learn more.

  • Can Archive Save You More Than Money?
    Can Archive Save You More Than Money? Storage Switzerland and NTP Recorded: Apr 20 2017 13 mins
    When most organizations consider an archiving project their primary goal is to save money. Basically they are looking to move data off of expensive storage valued at a couple dollars per GB to secondary storage valued at pennies a GB. They are counting on the 80/20 rule to save them money, where 80 percent of what an organization stores has not been accessed in the last nine months. Moving that 80% to less expensive storage will save them money. What most organizations that successfully implement a data management strategy actually find that the per GB cost savings is the most trivial part of the equation. In this ChalkTalk video, Storage Switzerland and NTP Software discuss the other more important reasons to archive data.

  • Beyond 2FA: The Smart Way to Manage Cloud Access
    Beyond 2FA: The Smart Way to Manage Cloud Access Mor Ahuvia, Authentication Product Marketing at Gemalto May 9 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Cloud apps are being pulled into the enterprise hand-over-fist, with 93% of organizations using cloud-based IT services. But the efficiencies and convenience offered by cloud apps come at a price. While organizations have long been applying two-factor authentication to their network, VPN and email portals, they have failed to extend that same level of security to cloud-based applications, such as Office 365, AWS and Salesforce.

    But the need for stronger cloud access security is only part of the story. Businesses looking to scale and increase their cloud adoption find there are other issues to contend with. Visibility into cloud access events and regulatory compliance become challenging to maintain. Helpdesk staff are burdened with password resets, and the most important link in the chain—users—are plagued with password fatigue.

    This webinar explains:
    •Challenges to greater cloud adoption in the enterprise
    •What cloud access management is
    •How strong authentication complements access management
    •Why cloud access management is critical to an organization’s cloud adoption strategy

    Simplify Disaster Recovery Plans with DataON & Windows Server 2016 SDS Solution DataON – Howard Lo, Microsoft – Ned Pyle, Mead & Hunt – Joseph Anich May 25 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    With the launch of Window Server 2016, new storage enhancements bring revolutionary new features within reach of every organization with its software-defined feature setup.

    Storage Replica is one of those new features in Windows Server 2016. For the first time, Windows Server offers the peace of mind of zero data loss, with the ability to synchronously protect data on different racks, floors, buildings, campuses, counties, and cities. Before and after a disaster strikes, Storage Replica offers you the ability to switch workloads to safe locations prior to catastrophes when granted a few moments warning with no data loss.

    Mead & Hunt is a leading engineering firm that chose a DataON and Windows software-defined solution. They replaced their aging SAN with DataON CiB storage, optimized for Microsoft Windows Server 2016 and Hyper-V in a ReFS environment.

    The webcast will explore the following topics:

    •How Mead & Hunt was able to consolidate and simplify their storage environment, eliminating increasing SAN maintenance costs while increasing performance

    •How Storage Replica in Windows Server 2016 allows you to setup storage-agnostic, block-level synchronous replication between clusters or servers for disaster recovery

    •Best practices on how to deploy Storage Replica, with real-world examples from Mead & Hunt’s deployment

    •Update on the latest storage technology from Western Digital

  • Fibre Channel Fundamentals
    Fibre Channel Fundamentals Rupin Mohan, HPE, Earl Apellanes, Brocade Jun 15 2017 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Fibre Channel (FC) is the storage networking protocol for enterprise data centers, with over 11 Billion ports deployed. Fibre Channel is purpose-built –and engineered to meet the demands for enterprise data centers that require rock solid reliability, high performance and scalability. It can even transport new storage protocols like NVMe natively.

    Flexible and resilient, Fibre Channel frames can be encapsulated in both an IP packet (FCIP) as well as a Layer 2 frame (FCoE) and provide unparalleled performance for storage systems. Even so, many people don’t actually understand how it works. This live webcast will help you understand the basics so that you can make informed decisions yourself.

    In this “Foundations” webcast, we’ll answer key questions, such as:
    - What is Fibre Channel?
    - What makes Fibre Channel so reliable?
    - How is Fibre Channel different from other storage protocols?
    - What are the best practices for designing Fibre Channel solutions?
    - And more

    If you’re not familiar with Fibre Channel and want to learn more, or if you are interested in learning about how Fibre Channel is purpose-built for storage and future proofed for next-gen NVMe storage arrays, join us at this live event. Our experts will be available to answer your specific questions on the spot.
