What is Breaking Deduplication?

George Crump, Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland and Jered Floyd, CTO at Permabit
Deduplication, the process of eliminating redundant data segments on a storage system, has become an expected feature in the disk backup market. It seemed logical that deduplication would be applied to throughout the data center. For the most part though deduplication is only consistently available where low latency and massive scale are not required, namely backup and Branch WAN optimization.

Specifically missing in action is primary storage deduplication. Why? Attend this web meeting hosted by Storage Switzerland’s Lead Analyst, George Crump and Jered Floyd, CTO of Permabit Technology. Both storage vendors and IT Managers will get significant value as they eavesdrop in on a conversation between Crump and Floyd in which they discuss the top four reasons that deduplication has not ubiquitously made its way to primary storage:

1) Unintelligent use of RAM and CPU storage for deduplication hash tables
2) Inefficient deduplication hash table size
3) The inefficiency of the hash lookup engine
4) The lack of experience in developing and supporting deduplication technology

After these weaknesses are covered, the webinar will conclude with a series of steps that developers can take to make sure their deduplication engines are up to the primary storage challenge and the questions that IT Managers should ask their prospective vendors to make sure they are getting a well vetted deduplication engine that will stand the test of time.

  • Are attacks on your network and users still occurring, despite continuing efforts to stay on top of security? What impact would malware have on your business if it was able to gain internal access and steal sensitive information?

    Without solutions that can disrupt the chain of events that occur during an advanced attack, many businesses are still being infiltrated and losing data every day. This webinar will cover the best practices in disrupting attacks with content security solutions - connected to optimize protection.
    Join this webinar as:
    •You will learn the tactics used by attackers today to infiltrate businesses
    •You will hear about the leading technologies available to disrupt advanced attacks
    •You will walk away with the knowledge to assess your own environment, and optimize your security
    Businesses today face more advanced attacks than we’ve ever seen in the past – and defending against them takes a connected approach which can disrupt the multiple points of infiltration and exfiltration used in the process of a breach. With most attacks seen in the wild using phishing emails to reach their target, a web link or malicious file to deliver a payload, and an outbound stream of communication to exfiltrate data – implementing a Secure Email Gateway, Secure Web Gateway, and Data Loss Prevention technology together will provide a barrier difficult for even the most advanced attacks to overcome.

    Don’t miss this webinar if you have a stake in the security of your most valuable information, or are directly responsible for the implementation of security solutions to protect it. Register now for this 30 minute webinar.

  • The C-Suite in every organization is obsessed with the buzz around Big Data and according to industry pundits almost 9 out of 10 organizations today have included this growing trend in their IT plans for 2014. But we all know that when it comes to execution and extracting true business value out of Big Data, only a fraction of the companies are successful. Believe it or not, infrastructure platforms play a key role in demonstrating the power of performance to deliver blazing speed analytics and makes all the difference if you can get a query answered in 3 seconds vs. 3 hours!

    Welcome to the new style of IT and a paradigm shift towards converged infrastructure or as IDC states it as the “3rd platform”, where you are no longer bound by the limitations of your traditional datacenter. Instead of plumbing or retrofitting your existing landscape you now have proven alternatives to augment your legacy environment with leading innovative platforms that are purpose built, seamlessly integrated and can be deployed in days vs. months. Learn from the best practices of some of our customers who have embarked on this journey already and paved the way for handling Big Data!

  • Storage Requirements for the Next Generation Data Center May 1 2014 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The Next Generation Data Center is HERE. These data centers are highly virtualized environments with extremely high virtual machine densities. They thrive on flexibility and cost efficiency. While most of these data centers are in the hands of cloud service providers (CSPs), more traditional enterprises see the benefits of the next generation data center and are adopting much of the CSP mentality. Because of their levels of VM density, these data centers change the storage I/O dynamic and essentially make the traditional storage array obsolete.

    In our upcoming webinar "The Storage Requirements for the Next Generation Data Center" join experts from Storage Switzerland and SolidFire to learn:
    1. What is the Next Generation Data Center?
    2. Why are Next Generation Data Centers ‘The End Game’ of IT?
    3. How Do Next Generation Data Centers Break Storage?
    4. How Does Storage Need to Change to Keep Up?

  • New Use Cases For Server Side Flash Apr 30 2014 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    - Cache is not just for virtualization anymore (actually it never was)

    Server and Desktop virtualization capture a lot of attention from storage vendors these days, especially Flash or SSD vendors. Server-side flash solutions have vaulted into the market lead and are the most commonly implemented method to solve virtualization performance issues. While the value of using server-side flash is undeniable, the fact remains that most data centers have large numbers of bare metal servers that also require high performance.

    Join us for our live webinar in which experts from Storage Switzerland and SanDisk discuss how to analyze these bare metal systems to determine if they can benefit from a flash based performance boost and which of the many flash options available are best for them (Shared Flash, Server Side Flash or Server Side Caching).

  • Ready For Software Defined WAN Acceleration For Virtual Environments? Recorded: Jan 14 2014 61 mins
    WAN Acceleration technologies have typically been deployed as appliances, however, the realities of virtualized infrastructure is demanding a more flexible approach to align with the needs of the software defined data center. WAN acceleration and optimization is more critical than ever given the elevated disaster recovery point and recovery time objectives (RPO/RTO) of the “always on”, hybrid cloud data center environment.

    To meet these demands, as well as the new requirements of the software defined data center, requires deploying WAN acceleration technology as a virtual appliance. Software-defined WAN acceleration enables organizations to leverage existing x86 resources while allowing businesses to granularly select those virtual machines most worthy of limited WAN bandwidth resources. This capability ensures that critical business applications will meet RPO and RTO objectives while maintaining application quality of service. Finally, it allows WAN policies to follow the VM instead of being hard set to hosts or network connections.

    Register today to learn how software defined WAN Acceleration can fulfill the promise of a cloud powered data center.
