Storage technology is trending towards solid state drives (SSD) across all platforms from mobile devices all the way to the data center. Regardless of the user perception that SSD/Flash is safer and more robust than traditional HDD, a recent survey compiled by Kroll Ontrack amongst 500 IT professionals reveals that 57 percent of respondents had experienced data loss with SSD/Flash technology.
Peter Böhret, VP Europe, Kroll Ontrack will discuss the risks and technical considerations relating to the use of SSD/Flash technology in a disaster recovery scenario, from the viewpoint of the world’s leading specialist in data recovery. The presentation will cover an overview of key technology differences HDD vs. SSD, highlight disaster recovery challenges in SSD infrastructures, outline SSD data security considerations and provide guidance about SSD usage based on real life data loss scenarios.
Although most IT professionals first consider SSD's as a replacement for HDD's, more sophisticated users are finding that significant benefits can be gained by using SSD's to reduce system cost and power consumption, server needs, and even software licenses, resulting in tangible cost savings in the data center. This presentation will cover some real-life examples in which SSD's have provided these benefits in production environments.Read more >

As data continues to grow at an alarming rate, IT will need to be smarter on how they store their data as much as how much storage they purchase. In this panel, experts from HGST and Code42 will discuss how data growth is affecting the storage industry in regards to cold storage, HDDs, back up and archiving and best practices to developing a comprehensive storage strategy.Read more >
Modern storage systems offer a dizzying range of IOPS (from hundreds to millions), as well as different latencies and storage capacities. Many IT managers find it difficult to determine which SSD or flash array to buy for their needs, or even whether they can get the speed they need from standard HDDs. This webcast will present results from a 2012 and follow-up 2016 survey of IT professionals to understand performance, capacity, and cost requirements, including IOPS, storage capacity, and latency, of various applications.Read more >
Five Financial Implications of Solid State Storage.

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.
Unity is the new baby of the EMC family. It’s an incredible engineering achievement – it’s a storage solution built from scratch without missing a beat. With Unity, we managed to change the car’s engine while barreling down the highway. It’s faster, denser, less expensive, and simpler than everything else on the market. Unity is focused at external storage use cases that start small - and go up to 500 SSDs/HDDs. Join this free webinar to see it in action and ask any questions you might have.Read more >
Hyperconverged infrastructures combine compute and storage components into a modular, scale-out platform that typically includes a hypervisor and some comprehensive management software. The technology is usually sold as self-contained appliance modules running on industry-standard server hardware with internal HDDs and SSDs. This capacity is abstracted and pooled into a shared resource for VMs running on each module or ‘node’ in the cluster. Hyperconverged infrastructures are sold as stand-alone appliances or as software that companies or integrators can use to build their own compute environments for private or hybrid clouds, special project infrastructures or departmental/remote office IT systems.

Optimizing database and application performance while controlling costs is a balance act for all IT managers. Solid-state storage delivers high performance, but the cost of maintaining large amounts of data on flash is the greatest barrier to adoption. As an innovator in flash solutions for enterprise servers, Dell has partnered with SanDisk to introduce the SanDisk® DAS Cache software for Dell PowerEdge servers with direct-attached storage. The solution delivers the performance of a flash-based cache in the server, combined with the economical advantages of HDD storage for large capacity.
Learn how to accelerate read and write performance for I/O intensive applications such as OLTP, OLAP, HPC and business analytics with the SanDisk® DAS Cache software for next-generation Dell PowerEdge servers. In this webinar representatives from SanDisk and Dell will discuss:
- Traditional approach to flash deployments for improving database and storage performance
- Workload use-cases for direct-attached-storage caching
- Performance and cost-benefits of SanDisk® DAS Cache
It’s well-known that storage I/O latency is the most common culprit hindering performance and efficiency in virtual computing. And it’s also well-known that using solid-state storage devices (SSDs) instead of hard-disk drives HDDs can significantly reduce this latency. The challenge is to deploy solid-state storage without an expensive forklift upgrade to existing storage systems. Join SanDisk to learn how new technologies enable solid-state storage to be deployed in the server, as a complement to existing storage, delivering flash memory performance at a far lower cost than a storage upgrade.Read more >
