  • How to Store and Manage 10 Billion Files
    How to Store and Manage 10 Billion Files David Bailey, Qumulo Director of Systems Engineering Recorded: Mar 24 2017 7 mins
    What’s in a number? Well, when that number is 10 billion, I’d say it can mean quite a lot.

    For some, 10 billion represents:
    - The number of photos posted on Facebook (by 2008)
    - The number of song downloads from Apple iTunes (by 2010)
    - The number of Tweets issued by Twitter (by 2010)
    - The number of times Shazam was used to tag songs (by 2013)
    - The number of monthly emails being sent by MailChimp (by 2014)
    - The number of monthly music video views on VEVO (by 2015)
    - The number of quarterly streaming hours of content on Netflix (by 2015)

    For Qumulo, we like to demonstrate how and why our customers create and manage 10+ billion files (in 1.2 million directories) in a single scale-out file system.

    Join David Bailey, Qumulo’s Director of Systems Engineering, for this demo, and see why customers call Qumulo Core scale-out storage “the smartest storage product ever built.”
  • ChalkTalk Video - Primary Storage Should Protect Itself
    ChalkTalk Video - Primary Storage Should Protect Itself George Crump Recorded: Mar 23 2017 4 mins
    Storage that is protects itself aids in the data protection and disaster recovery processes without compromising traditional primary storage performance and features. It does this through a combination of its own capabilities (snapshots, basic replication as well as multi-site and synchronous replication) and by complementing or enhancing existing backup solutions – but not replacing them. While many storage systems have replication capabilities, self-protecting primary storage differs in the implementation of those replication tasks, the number of locations that can be a part of that task and the monitoring of those tasks to ensure successful completion.

  • Storage Refresh? 3 Capabilities Primary Storage Must Have (but probably doesn't)
    Storage Refresh? 3 Capabilities Primary Storage Must Have (but probably doesn't) Charlie Hodges, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Mar 23 2017 59 mins
    If your organization is embarking on a refresh of your primary storage system this year, this is the one webinar that you will want to attend. IT evaluators that haven't looked at storage in a few years, will be impressed the use of flash to improve performance, while many claim to integrate file (NFS, SMB) and block (iSCSI, Fibre) protocols. These features though are now table stakes for the modern storage solution.

    While all of these features are important (and not created equal), IT professionals should demand capabilities that solve today's organizational challenges like eliminating shadow IT, improving multi-site productivity and long term data retention as well as meeting increasingly strict compliance standards. IT professionals should look for not only high performance and universal protocol support but also enterprise file sync and share, inter-data center sync and secure archive with compliance.
  • Top Reasons Why Your Antivirus Isn’t Working Anymore
    Top Reasons Why Your Antivirus Isn’t Working Anymore Ed Metcalf, Director of Product Marketing and Brian Robison, Senior Director of Field Technical Marketing at Cylance Recorded: Mar 23 2017 68 mins
    Are you weary from fighting malware, ransomware, and other threats that your ineffective and tired antivirus software can’t stop?

    If so, join us for our webinar, “Top Reasons Why Your Antivirus Isn’t Working Anymore” to hear why it’s time to rise up and overthrow traditional, reactive antivirus solutions in favor of proactive endpoint protection powered by artificial intelligence (AI).

    During this webinar, you will see a live demo of AI in action with CylancePROTECT®, and cover the key reasons why your current antivirus solution probably isn’t working anymore:

    - It’s Reactive: Legacy, signature-based antivirus products cannot prevent malware from executing. Cylance AI technology protects before the machine is infected.
    - It’s Ineffective: Legacy security tools perform at a 70 – 90% success rate. Cylance routinely performs with near perfect efficacy, at 99%+.
    - It’s Burdensome: On average, traditional endpoint security products use 50% to over 70% of CPU cycles during intensive scans. CylancePROTECT is outstandingly lightweight at just 1% – 3% CPU utilization.
    - It’s Costly: Signature-based antivirus solutions impact the bottom line with more layers of unproductive technology. Cylance protects with a single agent and a single cloud-based management tool, and that translates into big cost savings.

  • The 5 Disaster Recovery Questions You’re Not Asking
    The 5 Disaster Recovery Questions You’re Not Asking Curtis Preston, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Mar 21 2017 62 mins
    Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is changing the way data center administrators think about disaster recovery. A DR site and equipment no longer need to be bought in advance. DRaaS instead enables DR to be on-demand. The concept is so appealing that vendors are racing into the market claiming to offer DRaaS capabilities. But DRaaS is more than a simple check mark for a DR requirement. Organizations need to realize that how well the service performs is critical to successfully surviving a disaster.

    In this webcast, you will learn how to use the Fibre Channel Speedmap, what the numbers mean, and why its useful:

    - Why do storage administrators use the Speedmap?
    - What’s the difference between throughput, bandwidth, baud rates, and speed?
    - Why does this matter for Fibre Channel and not, say, Ethernet?

    This live webcast will be useful for anyone who wants to separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to “speeds and feeds,” and make sense of the numbers.
