Operating at slower speeds, this presentation dives into the methods one can employ to increase the performance, and in turn the value of this slower and aging data storage technology.
  • “The Best Way To Predict Your Future Is To Create It.” “The Best Way To Predict Your Future Is To Create It.” Peter McCallum Recorded: Jan 24 2017 46 mins
    More so than ever before, businesses are requiring IT to become less about infrastructure and more about availability and mobility of data. Yesterday’s IT shops were defined by the technology they chose to use rather than capabilities they could deliver to the business and its workforce. End users have become more savvy and less willing to accept limitations of traditional, static services. Technology has to adapt to timing, location and value of data on a global basis without restrictions. Based on these trends, FreeStor grew from roots in static infrastructure to now support the widest interoperability across storage platforms, protocols, hypervisors, clouds, and applications in the industry. See how FreeStor is helping to drive the goal of “infrastructure anywhere” for seamless delivery of data anywhere users need to be.

  • Future-Proof Your Private Cloud with Software-Defined Storage Future-Proof Your Private Cloud with Software-Defined Storage Rob Whiteley, VP of Marketing, Hedvig Inc. Recorded: Jan 24 2017 47 mins
    Many large organizations either can’t or won’t go all-in on the public cloud. Regulatory compliance, legacy infrastructure, and costs drive these organizations to build private clouds. Do you invest in VMs or containers? Do you use OpenStack, Kubernetes, or Mesos to orchestrate your cloud? How will you bridge your private cloud with AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google Compute Cloud? You need a flexible architecture that not only embraces all the above, but facilitate frictionless movement among them.

    Specifically, you’ll learn how you can use software-defined storage to:
    1. Support any hypervisor, container, or cloud platform – simultaneously.
    2. Plug into any cloud orchestration tool to automate your private cloud.
    3. Integrate public cloud – and not just bolt it on – when you’re ready.
    4. Create self-service storage and sandboxes for DevOps environments.

  • Enterprise Applications and Persistent Storage with Docker Containers Enterprise Applications and Persistent Storage with Docker Containers Andrew Sullivan, Technical Marketing Engineer, NetApp Jan 25 2017 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Docker® containers have emerged to provide the agility that development teams need while delivering the stability and reliability required by IT operations. Developers can bring existing applications into the Docker ecosystem while building new applications using microservice design principles. IT-operations teams can benefit from reduced complexity and faster deployment of containerized applications.

    Typically, Docker containers do not retain data after being restarted or retired. A container’s ephemeral nature presents challenges for containerizing many common Enterprise applications, from databases to home-grown tools, where data must be retained or when a container must share its data across multiple Docker hosts. Docker and NetApp solve these issues and more with the NetApp® Docker Volume Plugin (nDVP).

    The nDVP adds persistent storage capabilities to Docker containers, which gives developers the ability to enable data persistence in applications that use Docker container technology along with enterprise storage features such as transparent scalability, high availability, encryption, data deduplication, and seamless replication.

    Imagine having your SAP® applications on demand—with the scalability and responsiveness of the cloud with the security of traditional IT. It’s not only possible—it’s a terrific way to accelerate your path to digital. Did you know that in the past 15 years, digital business disruption has knocked 50% of Fortune 500 companies off the list? Don’t be next. IT is constantly challenged to accelerate time-to-value, reduce TCO, and deliver continuous business process improvement by making business more digital, scalable, and resilient.

  • From AI to Virtual Reality - How Storage is Shaping the Future of Media & Film From AI to Virtual Reality - How Storage is Shaping the Future of Media & Film Jeff Greenwald, Dir Sales; Erik Weaver, Global Dir. of M&E; Hal Woods, VP & CTO - Western Digital Jan 31 2017 9:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Hollywood has been innovating for over a hundred years, and storage has been along for the ride. With the onset of the digitization of film, moving from HD to 8K and eventually 16K film, file sizes are soaring! A film that once generated 112GB an hour may soon reach 86TB. Therefore storage has leaped to the forefront of film, becoming a critical factor in how movies are archived, streams are stored, and how much broadcasts and movies will cost.

    Jeff Greenwald, Director Sales, M&E; Erik Weaver, Global Director of M&E; and Hal Woods, VP & CTO Data Center Systems of Western Digital as they discuss:

    - The Age of Digitization & Future Trends in M&E
    - How Technology Transforms the Future of Film
    - Storage Solutions for the Future of Film

    From the movie set, through the camera, to the big screen, or little screen, it’s time we included ‘storage’ in our closing credits.
