A Head-to-Head Comparison of the Top-rated Products in HCI & SDS

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

  • Data Resilience and Recovery with Object Storage Recorded: Sep 21 2021 58 mins
    John Bell, Sr. Technical Customer Engineer, DataCore; Adrian J. Herrera, Object Storage Product Mktg Principal, DataCore
    Human error, infrastructure failure, malware, ransomware attacks, and natural disasters can all lead to data deletion or corruption. The repercussions of not properly protecting data include lost opportunities, stiff fines and penalties, major business disruptions, or even, in extreme cases, loss of life.

    Therefore data backup, recovery, and protection solutions are routinely the largest budgetary expenses for data-driven organizations. But as data sets grow from hundreds of Terabytes to Petabytes, and data is created and consumed in distributed locations, how can you ensure proper data protection?

    In today’s distributed world, it’s extremely important to understand why object storage provides the best defense against a wide range of issues and how to identify the right object storage solution for your organization. In this webinar, you will learn:

    The best object storage software deployment approaches and how they help with malware and ransomware attacks
    The difference between data replication and erasure coding on object storage and how they differ from RAID on NAS
    The difference between proactive versus reactive data recovery techniques and why these matter at Petabyte scale
    WORM, Immutability and Object Locking options
    Manageability with millions or billions of files
    How object storage fits into the 3-2-1 and 3-2-1-1 backup rules with an emphasis on helping viewers to understand the differences between object storage, cloud storage, and tape
  • Evaluating Object Storage Solutions Recorded: Aug 4 2021 67 mins
    Eric Burgener, Research VP, IDC; Adrian Herrera Product Mktg Principal, DataCore; Ryan Meek Technical Director, DataCore
    Does your team need to manage billions of files, petabytes of data or thousands of tenants with limited staff and resources? Do you require the scalability of cloud storage secure in your data center? Do you want to provide cloud storage services or find a cost-effective way to keep scaling data sets online and accessible?

    Object storage is the solution for you!

    However, there are significant differences between various object storage solutions. How do you develop the framework for your evaluation? What questions should you ask internal stakeholders and object storage vendors, and what should you consider when testing workflows?

    In this educational webinar, IDC’s Eric Burgener and DataCore’s Ryan Meek and Adrian Herrera discuss this topic with an emphasis on providing a framework for evaluating the differences between object storage solutions.

  • Hot vs Cold Data: Its Influence On Data Placement Decision & What to Do About It Recorded: Jun 23 2020 44 mins
    Augie Gonzalez, Director of Product Marketing, DataCore Software
    The short half-life of data, quickly decaying from hot to warm to cold, governs how much you should spend on it throughout its stages.

    Humans are poorly equipped to track the rapid temperature changes, much less capable of reacting to it. Consequently, largely dormant data consumes precious space on expensive storage, blowing up disk capacity and spiraling up costs.

    In this webinar you’ll become acquainted with:
    •Machine learning (ML) techniques that sense data temperature variations in real-time
    •Artificial intelligence (AI) methods used to dynamically migrate data accordingly, between primary, secondary and cloud storage from different suppliers
    •Relative distribution of storage tiers necessary for optimum savings

  • Disrupt without Disruption Recorded: May 28 2020 27 mins
    Alfons Michels, Member of the Product Team, DataCore Software
    The administrative efforts to manage different storage sources, especially for unstructured data, are tremendous. Often this diversity is caused by the natural growth of the storage infrastructure. To lower the administrative efforts, one obvious approach is to ‘centralize‘ all data in a single system, but this is rarely practicable. A more practicable approach is to leverage a software layer to pool all resources, handle them centrally whereby underneath diverse (and existing) storages could be used. Join our session to see how Software-Defined Storage (SDS) exactly supports you in doing more with less and what else you can expect from DataCore SDS.
