      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

    • 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

    • Deploying Windows Server 2016 Hyper-Converged Cluster Platform with NVMe SSD
      Deploying Windows Server 2016 Hyper-Converged Cluster Platform with NVMe SSD Howard Lo; Claus Joergensen; David Risser; Vivek Sarath; Motti Beck; Mike Heumann Recorded: Nov 10 2016 6:00 pm UTC 58 mins
    • Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) is one of the hottest topics in data center architecture today. In the simplest terms, HCI combines computing, storage, and networking components into a single physical instance. These devices, or HCI appliances, are significantly simpler and cheaper to deploy and make scaling of applications easier. This enables IT managers to maximize their data centers efficiency and meet the networking and storage demands of Microsoft’s Software-defined Data Center (SDDC). The greatest challenge with HCI for medium-sized enterprises, however, has often been finding a solution that is not too large (and expensive) for their needs.

      Join speakers from DataON, Microsoft, Intel, Mellanox and EVGA to learn how to meet this challenge head-on by rapidly and cost-effectively deploying a Windows Server 2016 hyper-converged cluster platform with Non-Volatile Memory Express® (NVMe™) SSDs.

      The webcast will explore the following topics:

      • Basic concepts of HCI, including challenges in deploying HCI solutions
      • How to choose the right partners to architect and deploy a hyper-converged cluster platform
      • Technologies that form the nucleus of DataON’s Hyper-Converged Cluster Appliance (HCCA), including Microsoft Windows Server 2016, Intel E5 CPUs and NVMe 3D NAND SSDs, and Mellanox end-to-end RDMA-capable networking solutions.
      • The benefits that EVGA (a leading hardware provider of high-end hardware components for PC gaming and video) realized by deploying the DataON-Intel-Microsoft hyper-converged cluster solution

      Presented by:
      DataON - Howard Lo, VP of Sales and Marketing
      Microsoft - Claus Joergensen, Principal Program Manager, Enterprise Cloud Group
      Intel - Vivek Sarathy, Storage Solution Architect, NVM Solutions Group
      Mellanox - Motti Beck, Senior Director of Business Development
      G2M Inc. - Mike Heumann, Managing Partner

    • SQL Server: Understanding Your Options for Disaster Recovery & High Availability
      SQL Server: Understanding Your Options for Disaster Recovery & High Availability Matt Aslett, 451 Research; Midd Carmack and Mike Donaghey, TierPoint Upcoming: Mar 29 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    • Join Midd Carmack, Product Manager and Mike Donaghey, Manager of Database Administration at TierPoint along with Matt Aslett, Research Director for Data Platforms and Analytics at 451 Research, as they discuss the latest high availability capabilities in SQL Server 2016, how to architect to take full advantage of those features, and implications for a robust disaster recovery plan.

      Midd brings over 20 years of IT Infrastructure, Operating System and Database administration and product management experience to the discussion and will provide an overview of TierPoint as a Managed Services Provider and the company’s Hybrid IT strategy.

      Matt will explore the latest high availability capabilities in SQL Server 2016, including database mirroring, log shipping, availability groups, and failover clustering. In addition to reviewing the capabilities of each of these approaches, this session will also include a perspective on their relative merits and use-cases. Matt will also explore the drivers for managed database services, versus hands-on database administration, in delivering the goals of a database high availability strategy.

      Mike’s experience spans 15 years working with managed database clients to design and manage SQL implementations for a variety of industries, including healthcare, financial and manufacturing. Mike will offer technical perspective on implementing SQL capabilities to optimize disaster recovery protection and budget considerations. He will use case study examples describing the challenges and business requirements for a variety of SQL installs, along with strategies for solving those problems using the DR/HA features available with SQL Server today.
