    • Server Storage I/O Innovation v2.015: Protect Preserve & Serve Your Information Server Storage I/O Innovation v2.015: Protect Preserve & Serve Your Information Greg Schulz, Founder & Sr. Advisory Analyst, Server StorageIO and UnlimitedIO LLC Recorded: Jun 23 2015 4:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    • A primary role of Information Technology (IT) organizations is to protect, preserve and serve information in support of business functions. The role of data storage is to protect, preserve and serve the needs of IT and various applications that transform data into use for information when needed. In this Server Storage I/O fundamentals webinar we will look at the current state of technology, tools, trends along with techniques as well as what is emerging from cloud, virtual, software defined as well as hardware defined capabilities. In addition, with a sub-theme of head in the clouds, feet on the ground, we will also look at what to use when, where, why and how as well as what matters for different scenarios.

      Key themes:
      •Software defined, virtual, cloud and physical or legacy environments
      •Networking with your servers and storage (LAN, SAN, WAN, DAS, Block, File, Object)
      •What to know about NVMe and emerging flash SSD technologies
      •How to access cloud storage and local storage from the cloud
      •Bulk storage including object, archive, big data, data ponds, data pools and data lakes
      •Changing roles of block and file storage complimenting objects
      •Data protection trends, techniques and tools
      •Various tools to have in your server storage I/O toolbox

    • Virtual Server and Storage – Converged Decision Making Virtual Server and Storage – Converged Decision Making Greg Schulz, Founder & Sr. Advisory Analyst, StorageIO Recorded: Dec 9 2014 5:00 pm UTC 46 mins
    • Servers need and storage and storage support servers as part of providing information services across different organizations, application and environments. An industry trend is a shift for some environments from separate compute servers and storage I/O networking capabilities to converged environments including cloud and virtual. This webinar looks at various current and emerging industry trends along with perspectives for making informed decisions pertaining to virtual servers and storage across converged, hyper-converged and traditional deployment scenarios.

      Key themes:
      •What are your different options for supporting various types of server virtualization
      •Industry trends including various hypervisors as well as containers
      •Different types of storage to support various applications needs
      •Software Defined Storage Management to support cloud and virtual environments
      •Who’s doing what as well as decision making criteria
      •How to benchmark or compare apples to apples vs. apples to oranges

    • Server and Storage I/O Networking Performance Management Server and Storage I/O Networking Performance Management Greg Schulz, Founder & Sr. Advisory Analyst, StorageIO Recorded: Dec 11 2014 5:00 pm UTC 46 mins
    • How can you make informed decisions without timely insight and awareness into how resources are being used or performing? Without insight and awareness into your server and storage I/O environment, you are flying blind. This webinar looks at the various issues as well as associated tools, techniques, technologies and metrics for gaining insight into your server and storage environment including storage I/O. As part of this discussion, we will also look at metrics that matter, baseline to compare what is normal vs. abnormal along with for planning and forecasting.

      Key themes:
      •Metrics that matter are those that are relevant and have context
      •Where to get metrics, measurements, insight and awareness
      •Where to look for server and storage I/O bottlenecks, problems and opportunities
      •Design for management and resiliency as well as metrics to measure
      •Gaining insight and awareness to monitor how your information factory and its networks are performing

    • SAN, LAN, MAN, WAN, POTS and PANs - Network servers and storage beyond the cable SAN, LAN, MAN, WAN, POTS and PANs - Network servers and storage beyond the cable Greg Schulz, Founder & Sr. Advisory Analyst, StorageIO Recorded: Aug 21 2014 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    • There are different aspects of networking ranging from physical cable (copper or optical) along with radio frequency (RF) or wireless mediums; however, there are also the software and logical considerations among others. In this webinar, we are going to look at how your servers and storage can network or communicate with each other. In order for servers to communicate with storage and vice versa on a local or remote basis. There is a mix of server, storage, networking hardware and software considerations to address. This discussion looks at what those considerations are as well as networking between different skills or knowledge groups to help network pro’s know a bit more about storage and vice versa across local, virtual and cloud servers and storage.

      Key themes:
      •What are your server and storage I/O networking options (local and remote)
      •Role of DAS, SAN, NAS, LANs, MANs and WANs including clouds
      •Virtual servers, virtual storage and virtual storage networking
      •Storage access protocols and personalities including block, file and object
