    • Cloud File Services: SMB/CIFS and NFS…in the Cloud
      Cloud File Services: SMB/CIFS and NFS…in the Cloud John Reed, Product Manager, Windows File Services, NetApp; David Fair, SNIA-ESF Business Development Chair - Intel Recorded: Oct 1 2014 6:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    • What if you could have all of your data in the cloud with the same experience and level of control that you currently have on-premises? Introducing the concept of Cloud File Services: SMB/CIFS and NFS...in the cloud!

      Companies and startups abound offering "sync & share" solutions across multiple devices and locations, but for the enterprise, caveats are everywhere. Often, only one root folder can sync, applications can't write into it, the sync protocol latency is too long, or the size limit is too small. Plus, let's face it: File Services is about a lot more than simple homedirs.

      Imagine evaporating your existing file server into the cloud. Not only will the aforementioned issues cease to exist, but also you will have the same administrative experience, the same data management functionalities, and the same protocols - SMB 3 & NFS 4.1 - that have helped redefined File Services.

      Content to cover:
      • Existing environment on-premises
      • Split administration with sync & share solutions and on-premises file services
      • Applications over File Services on-premises (SMB 3, NFS 4.1)
      • Moving to the cloud: your storage OS in a hyperscalar or service provider
      • Accommodating existing File Services workloads with Cloud File Services
      • Accommodating cloud-hosted applications over Cloud File Services

    • Employee File Sharing: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly
      Employee File Sharing: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly Information Security Officer, Atos; VP Global Marketing, Ipswitch File Transfer Recorded: Jun 4 2013 2:00 pm UTC 57 mins
    • In a recent SC Survey of information security professionals 99% of those asked said it was ‘important’ that their organisation has secure file sharing. But 50% said they had ‘no real visibility’ of how data is being sent within and outside the company.

      That said, even IT security professionals resort to using insecure file transfer systems so they can get their job done, with many saying they have used the following to transfer sensitive information:

      · Email – 82%
      · USB device – 64%
      · Consumer cloud service (e.g. Dropbox) – 28%

      If IT professionals – who know the risks – are prepared to use such systems, what are employees not versed in security prepared to do?

      Tune in to hear our experts discuss these and the other quite surprising results, plus a look at how best to protect files shared inside and outside your organisation, while benefiting from the productivity boost such sharing can allow.

    • How to Store and Manage 10 Billion Files
      How to Store and Manage 10 Billion Files David Bailey, Qumulo Director of Systems Engineering Recorded: Mar 24 2017 9:05 pm UTC 7 mins
    • What’s in a number? Well, when that number is 10 billion, I’d say it can mean quite a lot.

      For some, 10 billion represents:
      - The number of photos posted on Facebook (by 2008)
      - The number of song downloads from Apple iTunes (by 2010)
      - The number of Tweets issued by Twitter (by 2010)
      - The number of times Shazam was used to tag songs (by 2013)
      - The number of monthly emails being sent by MailChimp (by 2014)
      - The number of monthly music video views on VEVO (by 2015)
      - The number of quarterly streaming hours of content on Netflix (by 2015)

      For Qumulo, we like to demonstrate how and why our customers create and manage 10+ billion files (in 1.2 million directories) in a single scale-out file system.

      Join David Bailey, Qumulo’s Director of Systems Engineering, for this demo, and see why customers call Qumulo Core scale-out storage “the smartest storage product ever built.”

    • Harness Exponential Data Growth with a Cloud-Based File Storage Infrastructure
      Harness Exponential Data Growth with a Cloud-Based File Storage Infrastructure Bill Emmert & Tom Rose, Nasuni Recorded: Jun 27 2017 6:00 pm UTC 12 mins
    • Are you prepared to handle exponential growth in data volume?

      How you access, manage, protect, and utilize your data is the challenge. Gartner reports the data volume is set to grow 800% over the next 5 years.

      Nasuni offers a complete Azure-based enterprise file storage system to handle this data volume growth. The IT goal hasn’t changed. How to accomplish it has. The debate is not hardware versus the cloud. It’s how to create an intelligent file infrastructure that utilizes the cloud.

      Join this webcast to learn how to:
      - Store data centrally in one self-protecting global file system
      - Make your data accessible anywhere, anytime
      - Scale your storage at unheard-of cost efficiency

    • How To Delete a Lot of Emails and Files Quickly and Defensibly
      How To Delete a Lot of Emails and Files Quickly and Defensibly Dan Elam, VP and Consultant, Contoural Recorded: Jul 20 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • Sometimes there is a mandate to delete large quantities of emails and files very quickly, either after litigation or simply because senior management gets fed up with too much electronic junk. When needing to delete a lot quickly, traditional “manage and let expire over time” approaches don’t work. On the other hand, blanket, delete-everything approaches can run afoul of record retention and legal requirements. What’s an organization to do?

    • Clustered File Systems: No Limits
      Clustered File Systems: No Limits John Kim, SNIA-ESF Chair, James Coomer, DDN, Alex McDonald, SNIA-ESF Vice Chair Recorded: Oct 25 2016 5:00 pm UTC 64 mins
    • Today's storage world would appear to have been divided into three major and mutually exclusive categories: block, file and object storage. Much of the marketing that shapes much of the user demand would appear to suggest that these are three quite distinct animals, and many systems are sold as exclusively either SAN for block, NAS for file or object. And object is often conflated with cloud, a consumption model that can in reality be block, file or object.

      But a fixed taxonomy that divides the storage world this way is very limiting, and can be confusing; for instance, when we talk about cloud. How should providers and users buy and consume their storage? Are there other classifications that might help in providing storage solutions to meet specific or more general application needs?

      This webcast will explore clustered storage solutions that not only provide multiple end users access to shared storage over a network, but allow the storage itself to be distributed and managed over multiple discrete storage systems. In this webcast, we’ll discuss:
      •General principles and specific clustered and distributed systems and the facilities they provide built on the underlying storage
      •Better known file systems like NFS, GPFS and Lustre along with a few of the less well known
      •How object based systems like S3 have blurred the lines between them and traditional file based solutions.

      This webcast should appeal to those interested in exploring some of the different ways of accessing & managing storage, and how that might affect how storage systems are provisioned and consumed. POSIX and other acronyms may be mentioned, but no rocket science beyond a general understanding of the principles of storage will be assumed. Contains no nuts and is suitable for vegans!
