Scaling multiple databases with a single legacy storage system works well from a cost perspective, but workload conflicts and hardware contention make these solutions an unattractive choice for anything but low-performance applications.
Attend the webinar to learn about:
- How SolidFire’s all-flash storage system provides high performance at massive scale for mixed workload processing while simultaneously controlling costs and guaranteeing performance
- How to deploy four or more database copies using SolidFire’s Oracle Validated Configuration, at a price point at or below the cost of traditional storage systems
- SolidFire’s Quality of Service (QoS) guarantee; every copy receives dedicated all-flash performance, so IT admins can deliver solutions with confidence and maximize business efficiency
Part 1: 60 Seconds to Infiltrate, Months to Discover
According to leading industry reports, 98% of breached data originates from unsecured database servers and nearly half are compromised in less than a minute! Almost all victims are not aware of a breach until a third party notifies them and nearly all breaches could have been avoided through the use of basic controls. Join (ISC)2 and Oracle on January 31, 2013 for Part 1 of our next Security Briefings series that will focus on database security and the detective, preventive, and administrative controls that can be put in place to mitigate the risk to your databases. There's no turning back the clock on stolen data, but you can put in place controls to ensure your organization won't be the next headline.
Protecting the valuable and confidential information stored within databases is vital for maintaining the integrity and reputation of organizations everywhere—not to mention ensuring regulatory compliance. However, many organizations still rely on security solutions with inherent limitations. Given the complexities of today’s database platforms and the sophistication of today’s cybercriminals, deploying a comprehensive and dedicated database security solution is a must. Here are five reasons why.
Join this in-depth discussion on enterprise database security and learn how to (1) Overcome inherent limitations of perimeter security and DBMS security features (2) Circumvent major costs and operation challenges in taking your 'reactive' database security to an optimized practice and (3) establish real-time protection and continous compliance with ZERO downtime.
Today, businesses leverage confidential and mission critical data that is often stored in traditional, relational databases or more modern, big data platforms. Understanding the key threats to database security and how attackers use vulnerabilities to gain access to your sensitive information is critical to deterring a database attack.
Join this webinar to learn about the latest threats and how to remediate them.
Inside or outside, which is better? You know that embedding analytics in databases offer several benefits including security, performance, and enabling users to take advantage of the analytics more readily. But how do you do it?
In this installment of our embedded analytics series we discuss embedding analytics using stored external procedures – an option provided by all major commercial RDBMS providers. These procedures are invoked in the same manner as internal stored SQL procedures but they run in a process space separate from that of the database itself. This separation can be advantageous in certain scenarios. In particular, if a data set is selected for analysis that pushes the limits of physical memory then the database is isolated from any issues that arise in running the analytics on this problematic data.
In this webinar, you will see detailed steps on how to implement the analytics as a shared library using IMSL Libraries for C for illustration.

IT organizations face many challenges when trying to apply patches due to the complexity and scale of their environment. In addition, IT teams are required to apply patches within a limited time frame from the release date to be considered compliant which can pose additional IT challenges. HP Database and Middleware out-of-box workflows are specially designed to simplify the patching process to Oracle and Microsoft SQL.
Register for this session and learn how to simplify the effort of applying patches while staying compliant.
Although it may sound like an oxymoron, the key to scaling a MySQL platform truly lies in consolidation of the physical storage layer. Whether you are running a dozen or a thousand MySQL instances, SolidFire provides a pathway to horizontally scale the storage layer, enabling capital and operational cost reductions, while virtually eliminating maintenance and replica deployment windows.
Attend the Webinar to Learn
- How SolidFire can guarantee storage performance, dynamically adjust storage resources on the fly, and linearly and non-disruptively scale your MySQL database storage infrastructure.
- How you can reduce deployment times for MySQL replication slaves and reporting copies from hours to seconds.
Join us in the discussion on the benefits of consolidating MySQL workloads on the storage industry’s only all-flash, scale-out, QoS-enabled storage system. With SolidFire you can provision, manage and clone production, reporting, dev/test and QA environments safely, all on the same array.
Join us for this next segment of “Under the Hood” that focuses on the database designer feature of HPE Vertica.
Learn how the schema designs created by Database Designer provide optimal query performance for your most challenging analytic workloads. Database Designer uses smart strategies to create efficient schema designs that can be deployed, changed and re-deployed by almost anyone, even those without advanced database knowledge.
Data thieves are opportunistic, looking for unprotected databases in the forgotten digital corners of your company. They are content to steal any data that lies within easy reach.
Large companies are especially vulnerable. With hundreds or even thousands of databases spread throughout business units and across multiple geographies, it is only a matter of time until your unprotected data is accessed and stolen.
Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be complicated, tedious or expensive to protect all of your sensitive data with a database monitoring solution. The right database monitoring solution can also provide visibility into data usage and simplify compliance audits.
Join us for this webinar to learn:
•Benefits of database monitoring over native audit tools
•Factors to consider before investing in database audit and protection
•3 specific ways to leverage database monitoring for improved security
Copy Data Management you won’t want to do without: Reduce costs for storage and licensing, run a database per developer through a self-service portal, QA new code at light speed and speed up your whole organization. Bart Sjerps shows you what it can do for any business that depends on databases.Read more >
Traditional SQL database scaling in e-commerce is a difficult, tedious, labor-intensive, and ultimately unsustainable process. Many DBAs and IT organizations have come to the conclusion that the traditional SQL databases, like MySQL, fundamentally cannot keep up and scale with the explosive growth of e-commerce. They say it's just too unwieldy and costly because SQL databases were not designed to truly scale, and especially to e-commerce cloud scale. Yet there are plenty of database professionals that hold the contrarian view that anyone that believes traditional databases don't scale simple lacks the knowledge, experience, and expertise to actually make them do so.
So who's right? Do traditional SQL databases have an e-commerce cloud scale issue or not?
During this webinar Marc Staimer, President and CDS of Dragon Slayer Consulting and Tony Barbagallo, Chief Marketing Officer for Clustrix, will examine this issue in detail, how traditional SQL databases scale, common workarounds to known e-commerce cloud scale problems, e-commerce scaling requirements, and organizational tolerance for manually labor-intensive sweat equity.
Please join us for a lively, entertaining, and educational discussion.
