Have you been thinking that managing your storage footprint has gotten a little…out of control?
Maybe you’re running as fast as you can to keep up with the growth of costly, complex data, backing it up and planning for any potential outage, but your traditional data center just can’t get you where you need to go.
That problem and its solution are the ideas behind our 45-minute, live, interactive webinar.
When you are hit by a ransomware attack, such as the recent WannaCrypt worm, you don’t have many options. You can pay the ransom, in the hopes that your data will be unencrypted. Or, you can wipe your systems clean, and then recover the data. But, backups are typically done on a daily basis. Depending on when the attack hit, the amount of data that you will lose could be in the hours. Fortunately, there is a better option.
Continuous Data Protection (CDP) captures every write operation from an application and store it in a second location. This means that you can go back to the last data that was written before the ransomware attacked occurred. This ensure that data loss, if any, is minimal. Join this webinar to learn more about CDP and why it’s your safety net when ransomware hits.

This exciting panel will explore the kinds of storage that IoT solutions demand. We’ll talk about what’s different about data storage for IoT compared to existing enterprise applications, what capabilities are required to support massive, distributed IoT networks, and how and why existing storage solutions may or may not be the best IoT application storage. We'll plan on getting into unique IoT data protection concerns, real-time data pipelines, machine learning, data accessibility, distributed processing, and of course, what’s actually practical for the IoT already emerging in today’s data center.
Customers who are deploying IoT platforms sometimes are forced to make difficult and limiting decisions for their infrastructure. Most application workloads are not consistent in their performance and capacity requirements, further compounding the difficulty on the infrastructure decision. A series of misleading choices often leads to over-engineering and thus overspending, or running systems that cannot meet the application demands. This webinar illustrates an approach for designing and configuring the compute and storage infrastructure for IoT. An ideal compute and storage infrastructure for IoT would have great agility and more than meet all of the technical requirements. It would have a variety of compute, and network personalities that were easy to change, and a storage layer that would support several storage protocols, contain multiple inline space saving technologies, and optimize the use of flash technology from a performance, capacity, and cost perspective.
Modern flash optimized arrays are an ideal and unique storage infrastructure to meet these ever-changing requirements. In this webinar, we will examine the importance of:
- Storage optimized along both the performance and capacity vectors of flash drive technologies providing great performance as well as extreme capacities.
- Fully flexible infrastructure providing several storage configurations allowing for an increase of raw performance with the addition of flash modules or increased capacity by adding cost effective dense storage (flash and/or HDD).
- Multi-pool internal architecture that is so in line with the “pooling” methodology internal to many IoT architectures that design and administration complexities are lessened or completely eliminated.
Internet of Things applications present a complex challenge to the supporting storage infrastructure: large volumes of streaming data that often need to be analyzed in real time.
IoT storage requires performance at scale and at a cost that won’t put projects out of reach. Join this webinar with John Webster, Sr. Analyst and data storage technologies expert, for a look at these requirements in more detail and new ways to prioritize them with today's storage technologies.
