Is your business at risk of toxic data? Effective on 22nd February, the Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme under the Privacy Act establishes new requirements for entities in responding to data breaches. Paul Bruton, director, Data Intelligence at Hitachi Vantara, Asia Pacific, explains what these changes mean for businesses and their data strategy, also in the context of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
In the space of storing, managing and protecting data, different approaches for handling information are used. The advent of cloud has brought in compelling benefits, but the amount of data that organizations continue to store is growing exponentially, resulting in mostly unrelated solutions that have lead to the rise of Hybrid IT. On the Data Protection side, Businesses increasingly demand 100% uptime with no data loss, or what IDC refers to as the "new race to zero" – 0 RPO and 0 RTO. Such scenarios are still unrealistic for all but the most expensive and demanding applications that can afford fully redundant systems.
IT organizations are improving the performance of their storage stacks and gradually driving down their RPO and RTO. Unfortunately, in most cases, this requires a complex strategy of interrelated components, which are often vendor and platform-specific, leaving IT to manually manage multiple systems and increasing the overall complexity of their environments.
Join this session to learn about:
- The latest advances in converging your storage and backup stack and how this can radically change the way you manage data
- The current challenges of copy data management and how to address them
- A dive into a TCO study depicting the savings achieved through this architectural change
- Why snapshots are obsolete and you to achieve near-instant data recovery
- A look into additional use cases of copy data for DevOps team
The technology advances presented in this session were recently recognized by Frost & Sullivan with the award for Technology Innovation for Data Storage and Management.

By untethering the digital workspace and enabling collaboration, End User Computing (EUC) is an important enabler of digital transformation. Despite the many advantages of EUC solutions—centralized management, increased security, and easy accessibility to name a few—many organizations have been slow to adopt. To ensure user productivity, you must also accelerate the key applications and databases users rely on, matching the efficiency of virtual desktops.
Addressing unpredictable user workloads in a complicated EUC environment can require painful re-architecting. Introducing new workloads may rob resources from existing workloads, leaving users unhappy. A better approach to infrastructure for End User Computing is needed. Netapp HCI was built to address the challenges to support your digital transformation to EUC.
Cloud computing innovation will power enterprise transformation in 2018. Cloud growth is also driving a rapid rise in the big data storage market, exacerbating the enterprise challenge around storage cost and complexity.
Join this webinar with Kevin L. Jackson, CEO, GovCloud Network LLC and globally recognized cloud computing thought leader. He will show how Cloud Storage 2.0 can be used to address this proliferation of real-time data from the web, mobile devices, social media, sensors, log files, and transactional applications, and how all of these are affecting today's data centers.
Virtualizing data center infrastructure has reduced server sprawl, and improved provisioning, scalability and TCO. However, it’s come with increased complexity in managing across the infrastructure stack. To address this, IT orgs are turning to automation. VMware vRealize Orchestrator and VMware vRealize Automation let you: easily provision virtual and physical servers, software, networking and storage; develop composite workflows to speed complex infrastructure provisioning; and create customized environments for dev/test.

IT Transformation projects are usually driven by the need to reduce complexity, improve agility, simplify systems, contain costs, manage ever growing data and provide more efficient operational management. Arguably, for seasoned IT professionals there is nothing new about the drivers for transformational change; it’s the velocity and scale of transformation today that’s the big challenge.
Today, to effectively accelerate business innovation, successful IT leaders are building infrastructure that focuses on automation and flexibility, supporting agile application development and helping deliver world-class customer experience. Of course, IT teams are still under pressure to deliver legacy, mission-critical applications but they also need to support a seemingly constant flow of emerging business opportunities. They’re also tasked to lower costs, reduce Capex, while helping to drive revenue growth. That’s a lot of drivers and this complex juggling act often requires modernising infrastructure. An almost inevitable result of this is that the mix of platforms they adopt will include public cloud.
So, does that signal the end of the corporate data centre as we know it? Well, as is so often the answer – yes and no. ‘Yes’ because there is no doubt that the complexity and cost of building and managing on-premise infrastructures is becoming increasingly unsustainable for many businesses. And ‘no’ because business continuity and stability of legacy applications are still, quite rightly, primary drivers today. But the corporate data centre may well now be a service provider’s data centre...
NVMe adoption has taken the Data Center by storm. And while the technology has proven itself to outperform all other competing SSD implementation, it is still quite limited and restricted to the local server it is attached to. This is where NVMe Targets come into the picture. In this presentation, we will explore how NVMe devices can be exported across a network and attached to remote server nodes.
The inevitable march to the cloud has begun and Hybrid Cloud is a huge milestone in that journey. It’s easy to use on-prem infrastructure and public cloud in parallel for your workloads, but a lot of friction occurs when these two worlds come together. High Availability, security, and interoperability are just a few. Demand for Data Sovereignty and GDPR throws another wrench into the mix. Storage solutions need to keep up with evolving demands and SDS will play a huge part in making Hybrid Cloud a reality.
In this session we'll look at:
- Common pitfalls when building or transitioning to a Hybrid Cloud infrastructure
- The effect of different use cases on Hybrid Cloud implementation
- The future of Hybrid Cloud and how to get there

Regardless of your geographical location, if you handle EU residents’ personal data, you also need to provide mechanisms that allow an individual to exercise the rights that are afforded by the GDPR. The ability to search, discover and review and delete data is a critical component of GDPR compliance.
But if that data is stored in multiple systems, and potentially shared with multiple partners, the tasks become dramatically more complex – requiring the technological ability to find and address all affected data promptly.
All of these rights require a new level of enterprise-wide data mapping, data governance, data architecture and system management. Join Primitive Logic’s technology solution experts in a conversation about how to address Subject Access Requests from the technology perspective.

Watson is a computer system capable of answering questions posed in natural language. Watson was named after IBM's first CEO, Thomas J. Watson. The computer system was specifically developed to answer questions on the quiz show Jeopardy! (where it beat its human competitors) and was then used in commercial applications, the first of which was helping with lung cancer treatment.
NetApp is now using IBM Watson in Elio, a virtual support assistant that responds to queries in natural language. Elio is built using Watson’s cognitive computing capabilities. These enable Elio to analyze unstructured data by using natural language processing to understand grammar and context, understand complex questions, and evaluate all possible meanings to determine what is being asked. Elio then reasons and identifies the best answers to questions with help from experts who monitor the quality of answers and continue to train Elio on more subjects.
Elio and Watson represent an innovative and novel use of large quantities of unstructured data to help solve problems, on average, four times faster than traditional methods. Join us at this webcast, where we’ll discuss:
•The challenges of utilizing large quantities of valuable yet unstructured data
•How Watson and Elio continuously learn as more data arrives, and navigates an ever growing volume of technical information

95% of companies have adopted cloud services but the 2018 Global Cloud Data Security Survey found there is a wide gap in the level of security precautions applied by companies in different markets. Organizations admitted that on average, only two-fifths (40%) of the data stored in the cloud is secured with encryption and key management solutions. This is disturbing since only a quarter (25%) of IT and IT security practitioners revealed they are very confident they know all the cloud services their business is using,
The reality is cloud creates challenges in knowing where your data resides and what or who has access to it. In 2018, breaches like Uber and Accenture occurred because of improperly configured security for web and cloud applications that were connected to a company’s network. A major catalyst to address this is upcoming regulations and compliance, which are trying to catch up with cloud adoption. Over the next few years, companies will be faced with more complicated and intricate auditing to demonstrate security and privacy best efforts in the cloud.
During this webinar, Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute, and Jason Hart, CTO of Data Protection, will walk attendees through the research methodology, key findings and how things have changed over the past couple of years. Join us to learn more about:
