To provide the performance needed to disaggregate Hadoop storage, a hybrid deployment of Intel® Solid State Drives with NVMe and HDDs where performance is optimized with Intel® Cache Acceleration Software. Veda will share the results of key benchmarks and the underlying architecture that is being deployed by a large Cloud Service Provider (CSP) to reduce their operational complexity and save cost.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 >

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.
Understand what hyperconvergence is – and is not

How and where it is being used in the Enterprise
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 >
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.
