Dramatic changes are underway in storage infrastructure. Extreme data growth, for business intelligence and unstructured data, has led many organizations to consider object storage as a scalable solution to the problem that this growth has caused. Additionally, many companies use the cloud, to gain the flexibility and speed of deployment which business requires.
Join Storage Switzerland’s founder and lead analyst, George Crump and Cloudian’s Chief Marketing Officer, Paul Turner, for an informative webinar that will do more than just describe the benefits of object and cloud storage but also describe how they can work together to solve your data problem once and for all. In addition, you will learn the specific next steps to begin implementing a hybrid cloud storage solution in your data center.
- What Hybrid Cloud Storage Is
- How It Can Solve Data Storage Problems
- How To Start Building Your Hybrid Cloud Storage System

While backup software vendors continue to innovate, hardware vendors have been resting on their deduplication laurels. In the meantime, the amount of data that organizations store continues to grow at an alarming pace and the backup and disaster recovery expectations of users are higher than ever. Most backup solutions today simply will not be able to keep pace with these realities. If organizations don't act now to address the weaknesses in their backup hardware, they will not be able to meet organizational demands by 2020. In this webinar, Cloudian and Storage Switzerland will discuss three areas where IT professionals need to expect more from their backup hardware and where they should demand less.
Four Reasons Why Backup Hardware Will Break by 2020:
1. Not Cost Effective Enough
2. Not Scalable Enough
3. Only Good for Backups - Not Enough Use Cases
4. Too Much Deduplication
Hugh Emberson, CTO & Co-Founder, StorReduce | Douglas Soltesz, Director Product Solutions, Cloudian
Deduplication isn’t built into object storage, so what do you do when your data is highly dedupable? Current appliances on the market only enable CIFS & NFS shares, NOT S3 API. This puts your Cloud First model in the back seat, as applications continue to work in legacy mode, preventing you from taking full advantage of the S3 API.
Cloudian and StorReduce have teamed up providing a S3 enabled deduplication gateway. This can be seamless integrated with any existing S3 based application. Certified by Veritas NetBackup and Commvault, learn how the StorReduce and Cloudian solution can:
Lower TCO for backup data
Enable Cloud First
Reduce network bandwidth
Tier On Premises S3 data to AWS Cloud
Douglas Soltesz, Director Product Solutions, Cloudian
Amazon Web Service Command Line Interface (AWS CLI). A unified tool designed to help you manage your AWS services. It uses a simple set of file commands for efficient file transfers to and from S3 storage. The unified tool is extensible and can be used with any Amazon S3 compatible storage such as Cloudian HyperStore. In this 30-minute live demo, we will demonstrate how to:
Configure AWS CLI with Amazon S3
Configure AWS CLI with S3 compatible storage Cloudian HyperStore
Create S3 buckets and demonstrate multi-part upload
The goal of this live demo is to help you get started on the road to scale-out object storage.
Eshwar Belani, Head of Alliances, Rubrik | Douglas Soltesz, Director Product Solutions, Cloudian
Economic conditions over the past decade have forced businesses to consider minimizing their data footprints in order to cut their enterprise server spend by more than $90 billion. However, with advances in enterprise technology and applications, data growth has been exponential. More than 1 quintillion bytes of data have been created within the last 2 years alone and data protection experts have been asked to do more with less.
In this webinar, discover how software-defined converged data management platform and scale-out cloud storage from Rubrik and Cloudian, help data protection experts do more with less while ensuring datacenter admins meet their SLAs.
Key topics to cover:
TCO / Economics of the datacenter
S3 API: Data protection between Rubrik, Cloudian and Amazon S3
Advantages of cost savings of intelligent data recovery from the cloud
On-premise software-defined storage (SDS)
Chris M Evans, Technology Analyst, Architecting.it, Paul Turner, CMO, Cloudian
The Simple Storage Service (S3) from Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been established as the standard interface for object storage and has been adopted as the de facto by the storage industry. The Amazon S3 API contains many advanced features that enterprises expect in every storage platform. Join us in this webinar to look at how these features are implemented and how object storage solution providers can extend the S3 API to add even more value to on-premises deployments. In this webinar you will learn about:
Versioning - the ability to retain a historical record of object updates
Tiering and ILM - moving object data through a data lifecycle
Replication - protecting data across multiple data centres/regions
Logging and Billing - tracking and charging for resource usage.
Chris M Evans, Technology Analyst, Architecting.it, Paul Turner, CMO, Cloudian
Amazon’s S3 (Simple Storage Service) is recognized as the de facto standard interface for interacting with object stores. Deploying an object solution at scale requires rich and robust security that both protects data on the infrastructure and ensures only the right level of access is granted to end users. Join us for the second of our S3 webinars, when we discuss all things security related. You will learn:
- Accessing S3 resources using access keys and signing.
- How to use Identity and Account Management.
- Supporting external users.
- Using code to manage access permissions.
- How data is protected in-flight and at rest.
- Encryption choices; using S3, Key management or customer supplied keys
Victor Salvacruz, Technical Marketing Engineer, Clouidian
Join Cloudian Technical Marketing Manager, Victor Salvacruz for an interactive webinar, comparing NAS and object storage.

Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3) has set the bar for cloud storage with the S3 API rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for object storage platforms. Many vendors claim compatibility with S3, however with the depth of features the API offers, few actually provide the level of support many IT organisations need. In this primer webinar, we will provide an introduction to the S3 API and explain:
- What S3 is and how it fits into the wider Amazon Web Services portfolio
- What the S3 API is and how it is used to store/retrieve data from the public cloud
- How developers and users can interact with S3

Vikram Gupta, Cloudian, and Dave Thomson, QStar Technologies
Digital assets in broadcast and media environments can generate revenue for decades, but if they become damaged or lost, they are either impossible or very expensive to recreate. Ensuring the long
term security of these high-value assets is essential. Cloudian and QStar Technologies regard data security and easy access to data as key requirements for organizations wishing to safely use their assets.
These days, the ability to easily scale archives to accommodate larger volumes of data necessitated by 4K and 8K resolution equipment is also paramount.
In 2015, the 3rd Platform will account for one third of global ICT spending and 100% of spending growth," said Frank Gens, Senior Vice President and Chief Analyst at IDC. "The industry is now entering the most critical period yet in the 3rd Platform era: the 'Innovation Stage.' Over the next several years, we expect to see an explosion of innovation and value creation on top of the 3rd Platform's foundation. This stage will be driven by a new wave of core technologies – Innovation Accelerators – that radically extend the 3rd Platform's capabilities and applications across all industries."
In this webinar, you'll learn about the 3rd platform and it's implications for Storage systems. In particular, you'll hear about Smart Data Storage systems which provide the low cost scaling, geo-distribution and multi-tenancy which the 3rd platform requires.
Organizations have effectively eliminated the pains of branch office IT management by centrally hosting remote office applications and delivering them up as web-based services. Without the need for branch office server and business IT infrastructure of the past, organizations are re-thinking how they deploy data storage to remote offices for local file sharing and backup. Today’s ROBO user needs simple, managed solutions that leverage the cloud for low-cost ‘always-on’ disaster recovery.
