Software-Defined Storage 101: Emerging Storage Possibilities

CIOs want to do more with less, but datacenter complexity is forcing IT departments to focus on tactical tasks more often than strategy. How does storage fit into this equation? Many are concerned with the ability to scale storage affordably which is driving enterprises towards software-defined storage.

Topics discussed include:
- DAS? SAN? NAS? Your storage options and the pros and cons of each
- How performance and economics improve without a SAN
- Relevant vendors and how they measure up when it comes to workload operation

  • Bringing Hyperconverged Networking to the Enterprise Cloud Recorded: Dec 15 2016 35 mins
    Steve Marchesano, Director, Solutions Marketing, Plexxi - Amanda Martinez, Business Development, Nutanix
    Plexxi’s software-defined network fundamentally changes the scalability and economics for customers deploying the latest scale-out applications and hyperconverged infrastructure. With Plexxi, organizations can deploy a single IP network that supports all workloads. On a per-workload basis, administrators can: define workload policies, allocate path bandwidth, and isolate workload traffic across the Plexxi fabric, eliminating the need to deploy multiple, separate networks.

    The ability to support multiple, diverse workloads on a single IP network fabric and control them through software is a fundamental requirement that Plexxi clearly understands and uniquely delivers. Plexxi’s software control plane, programmatic APIs, and pre-built Connect Integration Packs deliver zero-touch integration and dynamic, Nutanix-specific, workload optimizations that simplify ongoing management.

    This webinar will discuss the ease-of-use, tight integration, and cost benefits of deploying Plexxi as the scale-out network for Nutanix environments. You’ll learn how Plexxi’s next-generation design fundamentally change the speed and economics of deploying Nutanix through:

    •Single, flat network topology for simple deployment and scaling
    •Dynamic, event-driven provisioning and allocation of network resources
    •Per-workload control for optimized performance and security
    •Building block scalability of network resources

    We look forward to you joining our Plexxi/Nutanix webinar, as we look at how Plexxi brings the benefits of hyperconverged networking to the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform.
  • Splunk: To Virtualize or Not to Virtualize Recorded: Dec 13 2016 48 mins
    Chris Brown, Technical Solutions Manager, Nutanix
    Is your Splunk deployment or upgrade going to be hosted on bare metal, a virtualized platform, or the cloud? The cloud has often been chosen for agility and flexibility, but on-prem deployments are experiencing a resurgence. Data security concerns and the desire to bring the analysis engine as close to the data source as possible are key influencers in the on-prem trend. In these cases, bare metal deployments are commonly chosen due to cost or complexity of hypervisors, however with bare metal Splunk loses out on all the quality of life improvements users have come to expect with virtualization.

    This webinar explores the benefits of virtualizing Splunk on the Nutanix enterprise cloud platform, taking the complexity out of managing virtualized infrastructure for Splunk, allowing Splunk experts to spend more time extracting insight from data. Nutanix allows Splunk to take full advantage of server virtualization without the limitations of other solutions and combines this with the agility and flexibility of public clouds. By ensuring data is accessed locally by all Splunk indexers, Nutanix eliminates the “I/O Blender” effect that can plague conventional, bare metal infrastructure.

    Register to see how to architect the best environment for Splunk with deployments that can scale to handle increasing data ingest rates and ever-increasing expectations for high performance. Learn useful tips on how to fully leverage the Nutanix distributed storage fabric, with details on data tiering, EC-X erasure coding, disk balancing, and more. We’ll also show how Splunk on Nutanix ensures:

    - The ability to ingest GBs of data per day
    - Quick search capabilities for mission critical applications
    - Ability to support growth in data ingest rates
    - Ease of deployment and management
    - Self-contained deployments for data security and privacy
Your Enterprise Cloud Platform
Nutanix makes IT infrastructure invisible with an enterprise cloud platform that delivers the agility and economics of the public cloud, without sacrificing the security and control of on-premises infrastructure.
