Bharath Ram Ramanathan, Principal Technical and Solutions Marketing Manager - HPE StorageRecorded: Mar 22 201960 mins
Data is the lifeblood of business. A company’s data is usually copied at least once, and often multiple times, to meet the needs of various use cases such as clones for test/dev or analytics, backup copies for data protection, archival copies for compliance, instant recovery copies, or, any particular set of data is likely to have spawned one or more copies. Copies are so important that they now consume 60% of total storage capacity for the average enterprise – even more than production data. While these copies are nearly always made for a good reason, in many organizations they have spiralled out of control, creating a copy data sprawl that is tough for IT to get its arms around, let alone manage.
So how do you protect this important asset, grant copies to all who need it, and avoid paying for extra storage capacity – on-premises and in the cloud? HPE Storage’s Recovery Manager Central (RMC) for 3PAR and Nimble Storage platforms delivers a single-pane-of-glass for Copy Data Management and Data Protection for a variety of workloads such as VMware, Oracle, SQL Server, Exchange, SAP HANA and more. In this talk, we will cover how RMC delivers a DataOps experience for 3PAR and Nimble platforms with live demos.

Data protection has always been one of the top priorities of IT; but the very nature of business data has been quietly changing behind the scenes. Today, unstructured data in the form of documents, images and other types of media files are making up the lion’s share of new data growth, and traditional storage and backup models are unable to provide the information and visibility needed to protect, manage and realize the full potential of the growing mountain of unstructured business data.
Nick Scholz, Robin Redgrave and Devadas Kovilakath, Micro FocusRecorded: Mar 20 201948 mins
As companies undergo digital transformations—with a laser focus on simplifying operations and boosting productivity—users are being asked to get more done faster and with fewer resources.
In this climate, it’s not surprising that employees independently turn to cloud file sharing services they may already be using at home to help them sync and share their files and get their work done.
But these consumer-grade services lack the security, control, and management features that many organizations need to protect themselves from data loss, breaches, and business continuity failures, so many IT leaders are stuck: how do they enable productivity and ease the sharing of critical files without compromising their security and compliance needs?
Join Nick Scholz, Robin Redgrave and Devadas Kovilakath to see what experts are saying about what to look for in an EFSS solution, and how to figure out which one fits your needs.
• What features help users adopt
• The state of the EFSS landscape
• The benefits and shortfalls of Cloud vs. On Premises solutions

Storage Switzerland, ActifioRecorded: Mar 19 201956 mins
Designing architectures to backup primary storage as well as provide rapid recoveries is a challenging task that most IT professionals need to face. It is even more challenging in the face of a rapidly growing data set, increasing demand for shorter recovery times and new threats like ransomware. The cost for IT to design, implement, maintain and upgrade these infrastructures can consume a big part of the IT budget. Additionally, the time required for each of these steps is something that most IT teams simply don’t have.
As a result, many organizations are looking for ways to move to an infrastructure-less architecture where most of the physical hardware is in the cloud as well as the software intelligence. The goal is to move data protection from a very unpredictable CAPEX cost to a normalized OPEX cost. There are an increasing number of cloud solutions that claim an infrastructure-less solution but many of these solutions force the organization to give up many of the capabilities they’ve come to count on or force them into long-term cloud relationships.
Attendees to the webinar will learn the challenges of maintaining an on-premises infrastructure, why current cloud solutions fall short and what IT really needs from an infrastructure-less solution.

Storage Switzerland, Cloudian, VeeamRecorded: Mar 14 201948 mins
Backup software is continuously improving. Solutions like Veeam Backup and Replication deliver instant recoveries, enabling virtual machine volumes to instantiate directly on the backup device, without having to wait for data to transfer back to primary storage. These solutions can also move older backups to higher capacity, lower cost object storage or cloud storage systems. To deliver meaningful performance during instant recovery without exceeding the backup storage budget requires IT to re-think its backup storage architecture.
Modern backup processes need high performance, low capacity systems to deliver high-performance instant recovery, as well as high-capacity, modest performance systems to store backup data long term and software to manage data placement for the most appropriate recovery performance while not breaking the budget.

Alex Gurevich, DXC Technology’s Analytics CTO for the Americas & Clark Bradley, Solutions Engineer at ZaloniRecorded: Mar 13 201961 mins
Organizations that put analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) at the core of their transformation strategy will survive and thrive in the age of digital disruption. To achieve this, a holistic, modern data architecture and a rock-solid information supply chain are critical for success.
Organizations can deliver timely, self-service, democratized data access and analytical insights at enterprise scale by leveraging the innovation design principles of data lakes, scalable and elastic cloud infrastructures, and automated information pipelines. However, many find that these architectures are complex to create, deploy and operate — often resulting in poor performance, unnecessary expense and underutilized assets for the do-it-yourselfers. Transitioning to such architectures from legacy paradigms carries additional difficulty and risk, especially in hybrid environments that can span multiple design patterns and cloud providers.
In this webinar, Clark Bradley, Zaloni solutions engineer, and Alex Gurevich, DXC Technology’s Analytics chief technology officer for the Americas, will present solution designs and representative field-use cases for simplifying and accelerating adoption of a modern, digital data architecture.
Topics to be discussed will include:
- Best practices for migrating from a legacy to a modern data architecture
- Deploying a data catalog in support of data lake architectures
- Data lake architectures for hybrid and cloud environments
- Protecting data assets and privacy without obstructing access

Storage Switzerland, CarboniteMar 26 20195:00 pmUTC60 mins
The cloud seems like a logical destination for backup data. It is by definition off-site, and the organization no longer needs to worry about allocating valuable floor space to secondary data storage. The problem is that most cloud backup solutions fall short of delivering enterprise class data protection.
Most cloud backup solutions are too complicated to set up and upgrade, don't provide complete platform support, don't provide flexible recovery options, can't meet the enterprises RTO/RPO requirements and don't provide a class of support that enables organizations to lower their operational expense.
In this live webinar Storage Switzerland and Carbonite discuss the five critical capabilities that enterprises, looking to move to cloud backup, need to make sure their solution has.
Join us for this live event to learn:
1. Why switch to the cloud for enterprise backup?
2. The five critical capabilities enterprises MUST have in cloud backup solutions. What they are and why enterprises need them.

Cloud Data Warehouses are on the rise. As companies aim to make analytics pervasive across their organization, cloud data warehouses and data marts became a logical solution for delivering a familiar analytics experience but without the constraints of managing large DW infrastructure. Cloud Data Warehouses help reduce management and infrastructure costs, offload maintenance and uptime responsibilities, and allow users to simply load data and run queries instead of managing databases.
However, migrating and streaming data to these new cloud managed services remains a freshman effort with many tools offering only simple ingestion functionality and limited data destinations. StreamSets has built an advanced integration with popular cloud Sw solutions like Snowflake, one of the world’s most popular cloud data warehouses. This level of integration provides fast synchronous and asynchronous ingest, multi-table uploads, and data drift compensation. StreamSets Control Hub helps users then manage a variety of pipelines, on-premise; across public clouds and cloud services.
In this webinar you will...
-Take a look at common usage patterns for Cloud Data Warehousing.
-Understand the core functionality of the Snowflake connector.
-Get information on the installation and operation of the new tool.

Sheryl Kingstone - VP of Customer Experience & Commerce - 451 Research | Sean Anderson - Dir. of Product Marketing - StreamSeApr 2 20195:00 pmUTC57 mins
Every organization wants to know more about its customers. More data can lead to a more comprehensive Customer 360 view—but only if all that data can be captured, managed, and kept safe from unauthorized use.
Companies today are forced to piece together partial views of customer behavior, managing to the limitations of their systems and not to their analytic goals. When data lives in silos it can create gaps in analytic outputs and poor visibility for business intelligence. StreamSets built a DataOps platform to help manage complex data flows into analytics environments with pre-built connections for popular customer data systems. Join 451’s research director Sheryl Kingstone to discuss how DataOps is fueling digital transformation.
In this webinar you will learn...
-How to build Customer 360 in a scalable way to capture customer data—across all an enterprise’s systems, securely and in real-time.
-How to deliver a unified, complete picture of the organization’s interactions with its customers.
-Challenges that make it difficult to adequately protect customer data, including personally identifiable information (PII).
