  • Improve application response times with Software-defined Storage? Recorded: Sep 26 2017 31 mins
    Sushant Rao,Sr. Director of Product Marketing, DataCore & Bill Hansen, Sr. Product Manager & Product Planner, Lenovo
    Surveys show that 61% of companies have experienced slow applications after server virtualization, with 77% pointing to I/O problems as the culprit. Companies are desperately trying to improve their I/O performance to speed-up applications and increase VM density.

    The most common performance measurement is IOPS, but is this the best metric?

    IOPS depends on a number of variables, including the type of workload being simulated, read/write percentages, sequent/random percentages and block size. Most importantly, IOPS doesn’t indicate the response time.

    In this webinar, we’ll discuss better ways to measure response times as I/O increases. These metrics will help you understand why some storage products can claim high number of IOPS but still perform poorly when they are used for critical applications in production.

    We will also show how a software-defined storage appliance (the Lenovo DX8200D Powered by DataCore) can speed up your applications.

    When you are trying to consolidate, simplify and automate your IT infrastructure, both Hyper-converged Infrastructure (HCI) and Software-defined Storage (SDS) promise to deliver the results you expect. For this reason, analysts predict HCI and SDS to grow rapidly compared to legacy architectures.

    But, with all the vendors and products in the HCI and SDS areas, how do you pick the “right” ones to evaluate? Too often, you have to rely on one-sided information from the vendors themselves.

    Join us as we evaluate the top products in the HCI and SDS categories using analysis from an unbiased, independent organization called WhatMatrix. In this webinar, we will cover the:
    - Criteria to evaluate these products
    - Pros and cons of different vendors’ products

  • Recovering your data from a Ransomware Attack with DataCore Recorded: May 25 2017 36 mins
    Sushant Rao, Senior Director, Product Marketing, DataCore Software
    When you are hit by a ransomware attack, such as the recent WannaCrypt worm, you don’t have many options. You can pay the ransom, in the hopes that your data will be unencrypted. Or, you can wipe your systems clean, and then recover the data. But, backups are typically done on a daily basis. Depending on when the attack hit, the amount of data that you will lose could be in the hours. Fortunately, there is a better option.

    Continuous Data Protection (CDP) captures every write operation from an application and store it in a second location. This means that you can go back to the last data that was written before the ransomware attacked occurred. This ensure that data loss, if any, is minimal. Join this webinar to learn more about CDP and why it’s your safety net when ransomware hits.

    At DataCore, we can help your business address these challenges.
  • A Case Study on Improving SQL Server Performance 20x with Hyperconverged Recorded: May 23 2017 49 mins
    Sushant Rao, Senior Director of Product Marketing, DataCore Software
    How does an organization that is looking to improve their MS SQL Server performance end up with hyperconverged infrastructure? Well, why would they? Hyperconverged is typically used for VDI and lightly loaded remote sites. But a mission-critical application like SQL Server? On Hyperconverged? Who would take that risk?
    In this webinar, hear from Emergency Communications of Southern Oregon (ECSO) that found that not only were they able to improve their SQL Server performance (by 20x!) with hyperconverged, they were also able to improve their availability and reduce costs to boot.
  • Parallel Computing meets Parallel I/O Recorded: Apr 26 2017 29 mins
    Augie Gonzalez, Director Product Marketing, DataCore Software
    Many of us responsible for large scale OLTP systems confront two clashing phenomena:
    •Data comes at us at increasingly higher rates (from an expanding number of sources)
    •The time required to process and analyze those inputs is rapidly shrinking.

    Blame it on the Internet of Things (IoT)!

    Instinctively, we respond with two approaches. First, we search for hardware and software that speed up the process.
    Then, we try breaking up the problem into smaller parallel efforts.

    In this webinar you will learn to:
    •Look for choke points that get in the way of executing concurrent transactions
    (Hint: they hide where you don’t suspect)
    •Recognize the consequences those choke points have on competing workloads
    •Apply DataCore™ Parallel I/O technology to solve these barriers

  • Data Center Consolidation and Simplification with Hyperconverged Recorded: Jan 18 2017 40 mins
    Sushant Rao, Sr. Director Product & Solutions Marketing, DataCore Software
    Server virtualization was supposed to consolidate and simplify IT infrastructure in data centers. But, that only “sort of happened”. Companies do have fewer servers but they never hit the consolidation ratios they expected. Why? In one word, performance.

    Surveys show that 61% of companies have experienced slow applications after server virtualization with 77% pointing to I/O problems as the culprit.

    Now, with hyperconverged, companies have another opportunity to fulfill their vision of consolidating and reduce the complexity of their infrastructure. But, this will only happen if their applications get the I/O performance they need.

    Join us for this webinar where we will show you how to get industry leading I/O response times and the best price/performance so you can reduce and simplify your infrastructure.
