OpenStack: What It Is and How It’s Transforming Cloud Storage

OpenStack might not be familiar to many storage professionals today, but it’s the next wave in cloud storage. An open-source component framework for the cloud, it brings new flexibility and responsiveness to the concept of Infrastructure-as-a-service. OpenStack is similar to Linux in that it enables IT organizations to easily tune distributions or even build them from scratch. But the most interesting aspect of OpenStack is how it’s fundamentally transforming cloud storage. With OpenStack, costs go down and scalability increases exponentially, both in private and public clouds. The bottom line is cheaper, more reliable storage on a platform that is flexible and relatively uncomplicated. Find out more with this webcast.

  • The Truth About DIY Vs. Converged and Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Recorded: Jun 4 2015 61 mins
    Caroline McCrory; Marc Staimer; Simon Bramfitt; David A. Chapa
    Hyperscale infrastructure — like that used by Amazon, Google, and Facebook — delivers performance in aggregate and extreme high density — leading to enterprise IT managers incorporating commodity off-the-shelf servers, networking, storage, and a do-it-yourself (DIY) approach.

    While the divergence approach is gaining momentum, so too is the opposite convergence trend. The current convergence fashion has several names: hyper-convergence, engineered systems, appliances, and software-defined compute/networking/storage that are shrink-wrapped in hardware.

    View this on-demand webinar as industry experts Marc Staimer, President & Chief Dragon Slayer, Dragon Slayer Consulting; Enrico Signoretti, Gigaom Research Analyst; and David A. Chapa, Chief Technology Evangelist for Seagate Cloud Systems and Solutions discuss the pros and cons of DIY versus hyper-converged solutions.. Moderating the discussion will be Caroline McCrory, Sr. Director, Gigaom Research.

    Here’s what you’ll learn:

    - Compare and contrast the DIY and Hyper-convergence approaches
    - Processes and procedures for utilizing either
    - Pros and cons of each
    - Systematic methodology (including checklists) in determining which approach works best for a given data center, project, department, location, or application workload

    The Fastest, Easiest Way to Backup and Store Data—so You Can Do More Important Things

    Are you still spending too much time backing up and storing data rather than using that information to drive business innovation? If so, it just might be time to consider an all-in-one backup target appliance (BTA).

    Join us as Seagate appliance experts Anne Haggar and Samuel Nagalingam will help you answer these important questions:

    1. Why are backup target appliances gaining steam in the market?
    2. How do you know if a BTA is right for you?
    3. How can Seagate’s BTA solve the problems you have managing your information and backing up enterprise applications?

    After taking a high-level look at the latest trends in BTA technology, Anne and Samuel will introduce you to the powerful, all-new Seagate Backup Target Appliance—an all-in-one solution that provides an onsite backup point for your most important information, let’s you optionally run the EVault Director Backup and Recovery Software, and allows you to replicate to another BTA or to the cloud.

    Find out how you can protect the information that matters most—wherever it resides—freeing you to use the information to drive innovation.
  • Cutting Through the Cloud and Software-Defined Storage Hype Recorded: Mar 11 2015 61 mins
    David Chapa, Seagate Chief Technology Evangelist; Michael K. Connolly, Seagate Director, Global Alliance Partners
    Technology gurus have inundated IT organizations with new acronyms, abbreviations, buzzwords, and catch phrases in an attempt to capture mindshare and stay current with industry evolution. Most recently, it's all about cloud, convergence, and software-defined storage (SDS). But what does it all really mean, and why should enterprise organizations care?

    Storage architectures have continued to evolve, thanks in part to the maturity seen in cloud and other technologies in the SDS space. SDS solutions, for example, allow IT entities to create a solution with somewhat commodity hardware to address nearly uncontrollable data growth. The challenges for enterprise organizations, across most verticals, is scaling storage to accommodate this rapid growth and address retention needs, while at the same time addressing performance bottlenecks, power utilization, data center space constraints, and, most critically, data availability and accessibility. Of course, cost is a big factor as well with today’s dwindling IT budgets.

    How can enterprises know what is right for their environments? What differentiates a converged infrastructure from a hyper-converged infrastructure?

    Join Seagate Chief Technology Evangelist David A. Chapa and Director, Global Alliance Partners Michael K. Connolly for a live webinar that will help you cut through the hype and learn more about:

    - Seagate's perspective on the market indicators
    - Top peer challenges, according to leading industry research
    - The difference between converged and hyper-converged infrastructures
    - Best and worst use case for SDS

  • Next Generation Storage: A Look Five Years Out Recorded: Jan 27 2015 63 mins
    Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) Sr. Analyst, Storage Systems, Mark Peters; ESG Analyst, Storage and Data Protection, Scott S
    Current storage solutions have served our IT community well since the late 1970s, but the needs of today are quickly revealing their shortcomings. The world is changing. Isn't it time to change your storage solution?

    The IT ecosystem is made up of interrelated mechanisms that need to work in concert to deliver services to the business. But if most of the ecosystem evolves to help make the organization more adaptable and competitive, one unchanged layer can hold back all of the potential benefits. We are fast approaching that point with storage. Petabyte scale, reliability, performance, and efficiency are the order of the day, and this requires a change in our current storage paradigm.
