Matt Hebb, Product Marketing, Data Center Systems, Western DigitalRecorded: Aug 21 201918 mins
As you likely know, the reason companies deployed virtualization in the beginning was to get more out of their hardware – and make their lives a little easier – it is the very same reason they are deploying it today. As a result, virtualized servers are the defacto standard in today’s data centers. While, it’s true that virtualization lowers IT infrastructure costs and allows enterprises to respond to new business needs quickly, it also creates an additional layer of infrastructure complexity. Complexity that the IT team has to manage across both the ESX and storage array layer.
We get it – it’s a double-edged sword. Virtualization is meant to lower costs and allow quicker response time, but when the infrastructure becomes complex, the resources required to manage it could increase and offset the savings you were hoping to achieve. Join us for this webinar where we’ll address how IT can more easily manage their virtual environment.
In this webinar, we’ll introduce you to the IntelliFlash vCenter Plug-in and share how the product offers visibility into storage datastore, offers the ability to self-provision VMs, and provides a consistent snapshot of VM-level performance metrics.

David Shaw, Chief Science Officer at Nasuni | Anne Blanchard, Senior Director of Product Marketing at NasuniRecorded: Aug 20 201913 mins
On May 7, 2019, the city of Baltimore was hit by a ransomware attack - code named “RobinHood.” Hackers used remote encryption to lock down the city’s file servers and demanded payment of 13 bitcoin in exchange for keys to release them. The city immediately notified the FBI and took systems offline to keep the attack from spreading, but not before it impacted over 10,000 computers and multiple city departments. The cost? An estimated $4.6M in data recovery costs alone. All told, the cost to restore data, the cost of new systems that would prevent an immediate new attack, and the lost revenue totaled over $18M.
Scenarios like this are causing many companies to reexamine their plans for disaster recovery in order to ensure business continuity, not just in the face of equipment, software, or network failures, but also in the event of a ransomware attack.
Anne Blanchard, Senior Director of Product Marketing sat down with David Shaw, Chief Science Officer at Nasuni, to discuss the Baltimore incident, tips on how to avoid a ransomware attack, and how to dramatically decrease business downtime and cost following an attack.

Fibre Channel has long been known to be a very secure protocol for storage. Even so, there is no such thing as a “perfectly secure” technology, and for that reason it’s important to constantly update and protect against threats.
The sheer variety of environments in which Fibre Channel fabrics are deployed makes it very difficult to simply rely only on physical security. In fact, it’s possible to access different storage systems by different users, even when spanned over several sites. Fibre Channel enables security services to specifically address these concerns, and prevent misconfigurations or access to data by non-authorized people and machines.
This webcast is going to dive deep into the guts of security aspects of Fibre Channel, looking closely at the protocols used to implement security in a Fibre Channel fabric. In particular, we’re going to look at:
•The definitions of the protocols to authenticate Fibre Channel devices
•What are the different classes of threats, and what are the mechanisms to protect against them
•What are session keys and how to set them up
•How Fibre Channel negotiates these parameters to insure frame-by-frame integrity and confidentiality
•How Fibre Channel establishes and distributes policies across a fabric
Please join us to learn more about the technical considerations that Fibre Channel brings to the table to secure and protect your data and information.

Kubernetes is more than a container orchestration platform. It’s a harbinger of a new paradigm for IT we’re calling cloud-native computing.
The cloud-native world recognizes that containers and microservices are inherently ephemeral, and that the massive scalability and performance we expect from applications and services depends upon that ephemerality.
Monitoring such radically dynamic environments is nothing like IT monitoring used to be. Statelessness, real-time behavior, and abstractions that drive configurations, security, and integration are core to cloud-native computing. These all require a fundamentally different approach to monitoring in order to provide the visibility and control that organizations require to keep this new infrastructure paradigm working at full bore.
Join Daniella Pontes, Senior Manager of Product Marketing at InfluxData and Jason Bloomberg, president of industry analyst firm Intellyx, for a provocative discussion of the new cloud-native computing paradigm and the monitoring challenges organizations face.
Attendees of this webinar will:
-Gain a broad understanding of what it means to be cloud-native
-Understand the particular monitoring challenges cloud-native infrastructures present
-Learn how InfluxData’s cloud-native TICK Stack centered on its InfluxDB purpose-built time-series database was built from the ground up to resolve the monitoring challenges organizations face as they move to cloud-native infrastructure.

Composing Infrastructure for Elastic, Hadoop, Kafka and Cassandra to Drive Down Cloud Data Center Costs
Hyperscale applications like Elastic, Hadoop, Kafka and Cassandra typically use a shared nothing design where each node in the compute cluster operates on its data. Hyperscale architectures, to maximize storage IO performance, keep data local to the compute node processing the job. The problem is that the organization loses the efficiency of shared storage infrastructure. As the hyperscale architecture scales, overprovisioned and underutilized compute, GPU and storage resources cost the organization money!
Join Storage Switzerland and DriveScale for our 20 minute webinar to learn how composable infrastructure can provide both high performance and high efficiency.
In 20 minutes learn:
- The challenges facing hyperscale architectures
- The true cost of underutilized compute and storage

There is no slowing down the amount of data that companies are collecting, managing, and trying to decipher to understand how to shape their business, both today and for the future. With all of this data, there are growing constraints on how it can be stored and leveraged for actionable insights, and there are a number of technology considerations and questions, including, for example:
>Is it better to store in the cloud or deploy a hybrid cloud initiative?
>What’s the difference between scaling out and scaling up? Which should we consider?
>How do you manage your data growth Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server?
In this webinar, we will answer those questions while also sharing how IntelliFlash NVMe™ simplifies data management challenges. We will dive into the traditional infrastructure elements, such as capacity, performance, and consumption of data, and how Oracle and SQL Server databases have developed scale-out and scale-up approaches. We will provide guidance on how to work with these topologies. Through various use-cases, we will share the impact that these architectures can have on infrastructures, specifically how NVMe and/or all-flash arrays enable a flexible, scalable infrastructure that accelerates time to insights.
