  • Advancing Life Science Research with Multi-tiered Flash and Object Storage
    Advancing Life Science Research with Multi-tiered Flash and Object Storage Robert Murphy, Big Data Program Manager, General Atomics Jun 28 2017 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    From sequencer to archive, the genomics data lifecycle can be characterized by brief periods of intense parallel computation, followed by an eternity of relative data at rest. Ever since the mapping of the first human genome, single-tier scale-out NAS and parallel file systems have been the predominant types of storage used in genomics because they were best at providing both high performance when needed — and capacity forever. But they are expensive because that single-tier provides both high performance and capacity all the time, even though high performance is only briefly needed during the genomics data lifecycle. This webcast will demonstrate how HGST innovations in flash and object storage can target and optimize the two genomics lifecycle regimes, delivering extreme performance for computation with flash on the IBM Spectrum Scale parallel file system — and cost effectively keeping genomics data protected and accessible over increasingly longer retention periods with HGST ActiveScale object storage, with the ability to transparently migrate data between flash and object tiers.

  • Getting Ready for Australia’s Privacy Act Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches)
    Getting Ready for Australia’s Privacy Act Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Helaine Leggat, an legal expert in data protection regulations and Graeme Pyper, Regional Director at Gemalto Jun 29 2017 12:00 am UTC 60 mins
    The Gemalto’s Breach Level Index reported 1.4 billion data records compromised worldwide in 2016, up 86% from 2015. Closer to home, there were 44 & 16 voluntarily reported breaches in Australia and New Zealand respectively. With the new Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017 in Australia, these numbers are expected to increase dramatically as organisations are required to declare any “eligible data breaches”.

    Navigating these regulations such as the Australian Privacy Act and European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the impact they will have can be daunting. Organisations must start planning ahead to mitigate the potential risks of being non-compliant. The implications of a data breach can go beyond compliance. In 2014, the Target breach had a massive impact on the company’s brand reputation, while last year’s announcement of the Yahoo! data breach cost the company nearly $1.7 billion in stock market value.

    During this webinar, Helaine Leggat, an legal expert in data protection regulations will discuss the Australian Privacy Act Amendment in detail, what it means for businesses in Australia and internationally. Graeme Pyper, Regional Director at Gemalto will provide recommendations to help prepare for the 2018 deadline.

    Join our webinar on the capabilities enabled between Microsoft and Red Hat, and how their IT ecosystems support and complement each other.

    For years Windows and Linux have been rival development and runtime environments used by two distinct development communities – .Net vs. J2EE. At least that’s what we thought. In fact, they are not rivals at all, really. Rather, they are both commonly used by nearly all enterprises to develop and execute the applications they need to run their businesses.

    Today, those applications are being modernized, containerized and redeployed across multiple clouds. Business and IT planners alike are rethinking how to develop new cloud-native applications and the infrastructure needed to deploy them to their best execution venue whether on-premises, in or across private, public or hybrid clouds. They expect the IT vendors and service providers they use to do more than just coexist. They expect partnerships dedicated to customer success – and none more so than among the two leading vendors in each community, Microsoft and Red Hat.

    In this webinar 451 Research Principal Analyst Carl Lehmann, Margaret Dawson, Global Product Marketing Manager at Red Hat
    and Jose Miguel Parrella,Sr Product Marketing Manager for Open Source at Microsoft will address:
    •How to overcome common challenges of application modernization, infrastructure management, and cloud deployment.
    •The partnership, and capabilities enabled therein, between Microsoft and Red Hat.
    •How Microsoft Azure and Red Hat ecosystems support and complement each other.

    Participants will learn how Microsoft and Red Hat build upon each other’s strengths in container-based, cloud-native application development, infrastructure deployment and operations to better serve their mutual customers through joint business practices, technology support, and ecosystem.

  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage: Programming & Networking Had a Baby
    Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage: Programming & Networking Had a Baby Rob Peglar, Symbolic IO, J Metz, Cisco, Alex McDonald, NetApp, Dror Goldenberg, Mellanox Jul 6 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    In this, the sixth entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” popular webcast series we look into some of the nitties and the gritties of storage details that are often assumed.

    When looking at data from the lens of an application, host, or operating system, it’s easy to forget that there are several layers of abstraction underneath before the actual placement of data occurs. In this webcast we are going to scratch beyond the first layer to understand some of the basic taxonomies of these layers.

    In this webcast we will show you more about the following:

    •Storage APIs and POSIX
    •Block, File, and Object storage
    •Byte Addressable and Logical Block Addressing
    •Log Structures and Journaling Systems

    It’s an ambitious project, but these terms and concepts are at the heart of where compute, networking and storage intersect. Having a good grasp of these concepts ties in with which type of storage networking to use, and how data is actually stored behind the scenes.

    Join us on July 6th for this session. We look forward to seeing you there!
  • Turning the Table on Hackers and Breaches
    Turning the Table on Hackers and Breaches Jason Hart, CTO of Data Protection at Gemalto Jul 11 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Data breaches in 2016 got even more personal with big hacks of adult entertainment sites and social media databases. Hackers mined these for gold, in other words, valuable data to create social engineering attacks, ransom operations and identity theft. According to Gemalto’s Breach Level Index, the number of stolen, compromised or lost records increase by 86% in 2016, while the number of breaches decreased by 4%. Hackers are going after more data than ever before, and they are finding it in large databases that are left relatively insecure.

    Whether consciously or not, hackers have grasped the idea of situational awareness. They have figured out how to exploit these golden opportunities by keeping a pulse on what is going on. It seems too simple to be true, but it goes back to the age-old principle of information is power. Getting the information comes from being aware of one’s surroundings. To become situationally aware, companies need to change their mindset- building a walled garden isn’t an option anymore. During the webinar, we will look at the major data breach trends and findings from 2016 and discuss how this information can help develop your situational awareness. Join us as we cover topics like:

    -What we can learn from Jason Bourne about knowing one’s surroundings
    -What we can learn from hackers to better protect valuable data
    -What we as security professionals can do by going back to the basics of accountability, integrity, auditability, availability and confidentiality
    -How to change our mindset in a new era of a hacker driven gold rush

  • A head-to-head comparison of the top-rated products in HCI & SDS
    A head-to-head comparison of the top-rated products in HCI & SDS Alfons Michels - Senior Product Marketing Manager, Sushant Rao - Senior Director, Product Marketing Jul 12 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    When you are trying to consolidate, simplify and automate your IT infrastructure, both Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) and Software-Defined Storage (SDS) promise to deliver the results you expect. For this reason, analysts predict HCI and SDS to grow rapidly compared to legacy architectures.

    But, with all the vendors and products in the HCI and SDS areas, how do you pick the “right” ones to evaluate? Too often, you have to rely on one-sided information from the vendors themselves.

    Join us as we evaluate the top products in the HCI and SDS categories using analysis from an unbiased, independent organization. In this webinar, we will cover the:
    - Criteria to evaluate these products
    - Pros and cons of different vendors’ products
