Hi {{ session.user.profile.firstName }}


  • This week on White Space, we look back at the news from DCD Converged conference in London. We’ve also brought back a special guest - Cole Crawford, CEO of Vapor IO and purveyor of unusual rack arrangements.

    We discuss various ways to reuse server heat and discover that Coca Cola is apparently using Internet of Things to develop new flavors of the sugary drink.

    Peter looks at the reasons behind the Telecity outage in the UK - but this outage has nothing on the recent data center fire in Azerbaijan, that left almost the entire country without access to the Internet.

    Also mentioned are the news about CA Technologies getting out of the DCIM business, the reinvention of liquid cooling company Iceotope and the fact that the US government has just discovered another 2000 data centers it didn’t know it had.

  • IT organizations face rising challenges to protect more data and applications in the face of growing data security threats as they deploy encryption on vastly larger scales and across cloud and hybrid environments. By moving past silo-constrained encryption and deploying encryption as an IT service centrally, uniformly, and at scale across the enterprise, your organization can benefit from unmatched coverage— whether you are securing databases, applications, file servers, and storage in the traditional data center, virtualized environments, and the cloud, and as the data moves between these different environments. When complemented by centralized key management, your organization can apply data protection where it needs it, when it needs it, and how it needs it—according to the unique needs of your business. Join us on November 25th to learn how to unshare your data, while sharing the IT services that keep your data secure, efficiently and effectively in the cloud and across your entire infrastructure.
  • This tutorial covers technologies introduced by popular papers about Google File System and BigTable, Amazon Dynamo or Apache Hadoop. In addition, Parallel, Scale-out, Distributed and P2P approaches with Lustre, PVFS and pNFS with several proprietary ones are presented as well.

  • The virtualization wave is beginning to stall as companies confront application performance problems that can no longer be addressed effectively, even in the short term, by the expensive deployment of silicon storage, brute force caching, or complex log structuring schemes. Simply put, hypervisor-based computing has hit the performance wall established decades ago when the industry shifted from multi-processor parallel computing to unicore/serial bus server computing.

    Join industry analyst Jon Toigo and DataCore in this presentation where you will learn how your business can benefit from our Adaptive Parallel I/O software by:

    - Harnessing the untapped power of today's multi-core processing systems and efficient CPU memory to create a new class of storage servers and hyper-converged systems
    - Enabling order of magnitude improvements in I/O throughput
    - Reducing the cost per I/O significantly
    - Increasing the number of virtual machines that an individual server can host without application performance slowdowns
  • IT organizations today are under constant pressure to deliver better services more quickly and with lower cost. Traditional approaches are being rapidly replaced with enabling technologies such as virtualization, software-defined architectures, and cloud computing, introducing more complexity while the relentless growth of data pushes the limits of scalability. As IT undergoes this transformation, backup and recovery services must transform with it, and together can enable a greater transformation for your business.

    Join our upcoming webcast to:
    •Identify three ways NetBackup 7.7 reduces the complexity of enterprise data protection
    •Understand three ways NetBackup 7.7 helps you scale with growth
    •Realize three ways in which NetBackup 7.7 can make your organization more agile
    •Learn about the latest capabilities added in the 7.7.1 release.

    Find out how you can improve enterprise backup and recovery and ultimately move faster and take bigger risks trusting that your information is safe.

  • Hear about 5 key storage advancements in this webinar. You'll learn:
    --How to enable greater infrastructure agility
    --How to cut storage-related costs by 60% or more
    --How customers benefit from recent storage innovations
  • As NVM Express becomes the de facto interface standard for Enterprise and Client PCIe-based storage, the NVMe specification is evolving to take on the challenge of maintaining low latency to storage media while scaling out to meet the needs of modern data centers and applications. This talk will explore the coming NVMe Over Fabrics specification, and how it enables NVMe to be used across RDMA fabrics (e.g., Ethernet or InfiniBand™ with RDMA, Fibre Channel, etc.) and connect to other NVMe storage devices. Who should attend: engineering and marketing people interested in learning about how NVMe Over Fabrics works and the new types of system architectures enabled by this protocol.
  • When we talk about “Storage” in the context of data centers, it can mean different things to different people. Someone who is developing applications will have a very different perspective than, say, someone who is responsible for managing that data on some form of media. Moreover, someone who is responsible for transporting data from one place to another has their own view that is related to, and yet different from, the previous two.
    Add in virtualization and layers of abstraction, from file systems to storage protocols, and things can get very confusing very quickly. Pretty soon people don’t even know the right questions to ask!
    How do applications and workloads get the information? What happens when you need more of it? Or faster access to it? Or move it far away? This webinar will take a step back and look at “storage” with a “big picture” approach, looking at the whole piece and attempt to fill in some of the blanks for you. We’ll be talking about:
    - Applications and RAM
    - Servers and Disks
    - Networks and Storage Types
    - Storage and Distances
    - Tools of the Trade/Offs
    The goal of the webinar is not to make specific recommendations, but equip the viewer with information that helps them ask the relevant questions, as well as get a keener insight to the consequences of storage choices.
  • Come join us as we learn how to tackle and manage big data application performance. First, Taneja Group Sr. Analyst Mike Matchett will present his take on how enterprise IT is now being challenged to support big data applications in real production environments. He'll discuss why too many enterprises haven't been as successful as they should in taking advantage of their big data opportunities - in many cases losing out to competitors. He'll explore what agile IT/devops really needs to do to not only effectively host, but deliver top-notch, consistent big data performance with the smallest infrastructure cost.
    Then Sean Suchter, co-founder and CEO at Pepperdata will present their compelling approach to solving big data cluster performance challenges. He'll demonstrate how Pepperdata's dynamic run-time optimizations can guarantee consistent performance SLA's in a shared multi-tenant Hadoop cluster. Because Pepperdata delivers detailed visibility into Hadoop cluster activity , the software becomes invaluable for cluster troubleshooting, reporting/chargeback, capacity planning, and other management and optimization requirements. With Pepperdata, IT can now effectively, efficiently, and reliably support all the business-empowering big data applications of an organization. This webcast will be 45 minutes with time reserved for Q+A.
  • Governments across the globe are proposing and enacting strong data privacy and data protection regulations by mandating frameworks that include noteworthy changes like defining a data breach to include data destruction, adding the right to be forgotten, mandating the practice of breach notifications, and many other new elements. The implications of this and other proposed legislation on how the cloud can be utilized for storing data are significant. Join this live Webcast to hear:

    •EU “directives” vs. “regulation”
    •General data protection regulation summary
    •How personal data has been redefined
    •Substantial financial penalties for non-compliance
    •Impact on data protection in the cloud
    •How to prepare now for impending changes
  • Backup is not the most fashionable of functions within the datacentre but it is one that every organisation faces. Nevertheless many firms, particularly at the mid and larger end of the scale, find it challenging to sustain high performance, service quality and control costs.

    The emergence of cloud infrastructure offerings such as AWS, Microsoft Azure and Private cloud has only increased the appeal of abandoning the traditional labour-intensive, multi-vendor approach in favour of a service-led utility model.

    This raises the question – are you better off continuing with an in-house solution under your control or deploying a cloud service?

    The webinar will explore 5 challenges that need to be addressed by Enterprise customers looking to take advantage of the opportunity Cloud presents.

    You will learn about:

    * The impact on restore
    * Handling bandwidth constraints
    * Delivering to Service levels in the cloud
    * Assessing security and compliance commitments
    * The true costs and the impact of change
