Will SSDs replace HDDs? Find out a surprising answer in this SNIA-sponsored webinar that explains in depth why NAND flash and HDDs will coexist over the long term in all levels of system, from notebook PCs right up to the large data center.Read more >
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 >
When’s the best time to upgrade your storage solutions? Whether you a cloud service provider, offering backup and archiving services, or providing content and social networking, your datacenter is evolving, and you’re discovering how data storage is becoming a bigger part of your capital and operational expenses. Join HGST’s Mike Alexenko to hear about key considerations and best practices when selecting HDD and SSD solutions to improve efficiencies and TCO.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 >
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 >
The most common storage media used within hybrid storage solutions are SSD and HDD. But what if a hybrid storage system could intelligently manage varying forms of flash-based storage with no hard-disk-based storage? What if that hybrid system could migrate between flash storage and a cloud storage repository?Read more >
This year’s Storage Developer Conference (SDC) is expected to draw over 400 storage developers and professionals. Get a sneak preview of key cloud topics that will be covered at SDC in this live Webcast where an expert panel will discuss:
· Mobile and Secure - Cloud Encrypted Objects using CDMI
· Object Drives: A new Architectural Partitioning
· Unistore: A Unified Storage Architecture for Cloud Computing
· Using CDMI to Manage Swift, S3, and Ceph Object Repositories
You’ll learn how encrypted objects can be stored, retrieved, and transferred between clouds, how Object Drives allow storage to scale up and down by single drive increments, end-user and vendor use cases of the Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI), and we’ll introduce Unistore - an innovative unified storage architecture that efficiently integrates heterogeneous HDD and SCM devices for Cloud storage systems.
This Webcast is live so please bring your questions for our esteemed panel of experts.
Have you ever seen a manager succeed in taking away an employee’s MacBook Air and replacing it with a traditional hard disk PC? Or tried to migrate application users from a flash-only array to a cheaper traditional hard disk (HDD) array? Have you ever had to remember to save your work on a flash-based smartphone?
Join us and learn ways to help justify faster storage, both from an IT budget and an application user productivity perspective:
•Fast and consistent system response times from any device, application, or system they are using improve a user’s individual productivity.
•The vast majority of systems with very fast storage run better and take less time to manage.
•Flash provides more productive ways of designing systems. For example, continuous saving of every keystroke is impossible with hard disk PCs, but is the norm in flash-based mobile devices.
