Save your seat to filter through the complexities of data storage, all-flash vs. traditional storage arrays, and how to effectively and efficiently manage your storage devices.
It seems like every storage company these days is talking about software-defined storage (SDS)… and for good reason. Software-defined storage provides transformational benefits for companies on a wide scale. For IT organizations, SDS technology enables infrastructure to scale to meet modern data demands, while reducing cost, improving hardware flexibility, speeding deployments, and dramatically simplifying storage infrastructure management.

As excitement mounts around SDS, a wide variety of storage industry solutions have begun leveraging the term. Some solutions, however, may not deliver all the expected benefits of SDS despite leveraging the name. The result has generated some confusion that in turn may lead some to delay SDS-based deployments. In response, it is important to understand what SDS technology provides in order for the technology to be effectively leveraged to transform IT infrastructure.
In this session, we will discuss:
- What constitutes SDS technology, and more importantly how to identify solutions that may leverage the term but may not meet expectations
- What benefits your organization should expect from SDS technology
- What advanced capabilities and features to look for in order to ensure that your organization is able to maximize the benefits of SDS.
Join Enterprise Strategy Group and Datera to learn how to understand software-defined storage and the transformational benefits it provides.
The explosion of unstructured data into data lakes from sources like machine-generated log files, social media feeds, and Internet of Things (IoT) sensors requires new analytics stacks to extract business value. Data Scientists are implementing and evolving these modern Big Data Analytics stacks to optimize, improve, and create value from their data lakes. Today, due to the limited flexibility and complexity of managing traditional storage, data scientists spend more time dealing with performance issues and managing storage instead of doing "data science". Watch this webinar to find out more about how to enable flexibility and agility of your data scientists by leveraging the scalability and high performance of the FlashBlade.Read more >
Storage is being recast as a set of services implemented in software with industry standard servers, allowing a radical simplification of provisioning and management at a significantly lower cost. At the same time, there are significant changes in flash, memory and server hardware architecture that software can take advantage of.
Join this live streaming session from SDC 2015 as Richard McDougall surveys and contrasts the popular software architectural approaches and investigate the changing hardware architectures upon which these systems are built.
