Protecting user data is important in storage devices. If valuable information is on a storage device, it makes sense to make sure that that data isn’t accessible by unauthorized individuals or organizations. Protecting user data from being stolen or accessed leads to the use of encryption in storage devices. With one of the hottest drive categories – solid state drives (SSDs) - rapidly penetrating data centers, this webcast provides a valuable introduction to self encrypting drives (SEDs) and explains why organizations need SEDs Solid State Drives in their environment.Read more >
There is a great deal of information available about solid state storage but what is important for IT professionals to know when making decisions?
In this presentation, we will explain:
•What is important for IT with solid state storage
•Where has solid state been exploited most effectively so far
•Likely deployment options for IT
•Future developments for IT usage
•Economic justifications for solid state in IT
Measuring performance of Solid State requires different approaches, tools and methodologies to accurately model characteristics of the data sets, access patterns, and data streams. The SNIA Solid State Storage System (S4) TWG was created for the purpose of addressing the unique performance behavior of solid state storage systems. Join Leah and Peter as they provide the guidelines that are vendor agnostic and will support all major solid state storage system technologies.Read more >
A pre-selection proof of concept or on-site vendor comparison can be a valuable tool as part of the solid state selection process. However, it is critical to all parties involved that the POC is setup and run correctly and efficiently. In this session, you will learn:
•POC process - How to avoid alienating your CIO or your vendors
•POC Technologies - Choosing the tools, technologies and tests to utilize
•POC Evaluation - Communicating valid and meaningful conclusions from your POC
Migration to solid state Tier 1 storage can be straightforward and simple with some upfront planning. Considerations for workload demands both today and into the future including performance and availability requirements, growth expectations and budget play a role in planning your move to solid state storage. This session describes what you should think about when you evaluate and size flash-based storage solutions to ensure the best migration experience and the best ROI.Read more >
This session presents a brief overview of the solid state technologies which are being integrated into enterprise storage systems today, including technologies, benefits, and price/performance. It describes where they fit into today’s typical enterprise storage architectures today, with descriptions of specific use cases. Finally, the session speculates briefly on what the future will bring.Read more >
The SNIA Solid State Storage Initiative is partnering with SATA-IO and NVM Express to present a panel of experts from Objective Analysis, Micron, TE Connectivity, Intel, Calypso, and Coughlin Associates to give you the latest information on M.2, the new SSD card form factor. You will leave this webinar with an understanding of the M.2 market, M.2 cards and connection schemes, NVM Express, and M.2 performance; you’ll also be able to ask questions of the experts.Read more >
Targeted primarily at an IT audience, this session presents a brief overview of the solid state technologies which are being integrated into Enterprise Storage Systems today, including technologies, benefits, and price/performance.
It then goes on to describe where they fit into typical Enterprise Storage architectures today, with descriptions of specific use cases.
Finally the presentation speculates briefly on what the future will bring.
