Does your storage system scale as you grow?
Should you go with scale-up or scale-out architecture?
Which hybrid scale-out NAS is right for you?
Netapp, EMC Isilon, Panasas, Lustre - which one is the best fit for you?
In this on-demand webinar, Panasas's Andre Franklin, Sr. Product Marketing Manager presents on:
- Scale and Scalability
- Scale-up vs. Scale-out
- Measuring Scalability
Gain competitive advantage with scalability.
Learn how the right parallel data access protocol delivers higher performance than what can be achieved with industry standard protocols such as NFS and SMB. Avoid their load-balancing and congestion side-effects that stand in your way of realizing exceptional performance on scale-out NAS.
Aggregate workloads with multiple compute clients must be able to access data directly from where it resides on shared-access storage, instead of having data access managed by an intermediary filer head. This was accomplished with first-generation scale-out clustered storage. Making the next cost-effective performance leap requires multiple compute clients to access data and metadata across the entire cluster in parallel, rather than restrict client I/O management to the single node connection of a scale-out storage cluster. When you double dramatically increase the throughput performance of client applications by accessing all nodes of a scale-out cluster, you double boost the productivity of all users while also eliminating hot spots on the clustered storage.
Join this session to discuss the Scale-Out Storage Master Usage Model and usage scenarios. This session will also cover best practices for adopting the ODCA requirements outlined in the usage model document.Read more >
Learn how to:
- Reduce SMB Storage Costs
- Eliminate the complexity and risk of storage sprawl
- Incrementally grow capacity to any size required using simple, low cost storage blocks
- Deploy enterprise-class storage without the cost or complexity
The first server that the small to medium sized business (SMB) purchases is often one that allows for file sharing and collaboration called network attached storage (NAS). As the business grows and becomes a small to medium sized enterprise (SME) the first point of storage trouble is often that standalone NAS. It runs out of capacity, it can't provide enough performance or both. As a result the SME is forced to add standalone NAS after NAS to keep up with these demands which leads to storage sprawl. Storage sprawl places pressure on every aspect of the SME as the storage line item becomes a larger and larger part of the storage budget, while the ability to provide 24/7 uptime decreases.
Join Storage Switzerland's Lead Analyst, George Crump and Kelly Murphy CEO of Gridstore for a discussion of the issues with Storage Sprawl and how you can stop it by taking a technology created for the large enterprise, Scale Out NAS, and applying it to the mid-sized market.
Webcast: Speed up SAP with Scale-out All-Flash Storage
Join us for this informative Kaminario webinar where we will demonstrate how running Sap application on Flash can result with significant performance improvement. We will review the different type of Flash solutions available and address pressing industry questions that directly relate to your SAP application needs and usage.
More companies have started to utilize SSD Flash to improve the performance and reliability of key applications. We will discuss some of the following topics:
•Which SAP applications are good candidate for Flash
•How to identify if your SAP application will run faster on SSD
•Identify what is the optimal Flash solution for SAP applications
•How the Kaminario K2 solution fits into resolving typical SAP performance issues
•ROI for running SAP application on Kaminario K2, and more.
Fast data applications are growing rapidly – driven by the adoption of IoT, M2M and SaaS platforms. While there’s general recognition that fast streaming data applications can produce significant yet fundamentally different values than Big Data applications, it’s not yet clear what technologies and approaches should be used to derive the value from these fast data streams. Building applications on real-time streaming data has unique requirements. Legacy databases get overwhelmed. A common solution is stitching together a collection of open source projects; however this has a steep learning curve, adds complexity and limits performance and latency.
So how do you combine real-time analytics with real-time decisions in an architecture that's reliable, scalable and simple? The answer is a scale out, in-memory database, that’s fast enough (< 1 millisecond) to support per-event transactions. In addition, a platform that supports streaming aggregation combined with per-event ACID processing and SQL, simplifies development and enhances performance and capability. VoltDB uses materialized views to provide real-time aggregation and summary and support combining real-time analytics with per-event decisions. The basis is SQL, which is used to query and re-aggregate views; and up-to-date views can be queried inside of transactions for per-event, real-time transactions.
In this webinar Ryan Betts, CTO at VoltDB, will explain:
• Why streaming aggregation is a key to streaming analytics
• How SQL can be used in combination with streaming aggregation
• The benefits of up-to-date analytics for per-event transactions and insights
