Join Peter McCallum and Gavin McLaughlin as they reconvene for part two in their discussion series on the state of the modern storage industry. For this segment, Gavin and Pete will discuss the convoluted reality of white-box or commodity storage hardware, and how it couples with software to provide real storage services for businesses. Ultimately, this overview should arm you with the concepts to look for as you shop across build-it-yourself, packaged open-source, decoupled heterogeneous, and proprietary storage paradigms. We’ll look at cost factors, gotchas, and key considerations as we review the incumbent and new players in our industry.
The storage industry is going through a welcome change. With the increased commoditization of storage hardware, coupled with the increased pricing competitiveness of public cloud services, many storage buyers are now realizing the flexibility and new options available to them. This webcast with Peter McCallum, VP Datacenter Solution Architecture, joined by Gavin McLaughlin, a 30 year veteran of the storage industry, discusses the change in the industry and provides recommendations on how storage buyers can take advantage of this new world.
More so than ever before, businesses are requiring IT to become less about infrastructure and more about availability and mobility of data. Yesterday’s IT shops were defined by the technology they chose to use rather than capabilities they could deliver to the business and its workforce. End users have become more savvy and less willing to accept limitations of traditional, static services. Technology has to adapt to timing, location and value of data on a global basis without restrictions. Based on these trends, FreeStor grew from roots in static infrastructure to now support the widest interoperability across storage platforms, protocols, hypervisors, clouds, and applications in the industry. See how FreeStor is helping to drive the goal of “infrastructure anywhere” for seamless delivery of data anywhere users need to be.
How do IT organizations manage data and control costs across paradigms in a way that does not restrict or prohibit portability? How do IT organizations provide consistent core-to-edge insight, capabilities and data services regardless of the location, vendor or platform?
When users put content into the cloud, they lose insight and control. Sure they can see capacity consumed, but what about the data services and performance? Working across clouds or moving from cloud to cloud further perpetuates the existing problems - lack of common tools and potential vendor lock-in.
FreeStor gives customers total choice to build the right destination, on the right storage paradigm for the right price and service level.
Let’s explore the cost of storage in the 1990’s, 2000’s, and today. How has the impact of technology changed the cost of storage? Are you considering moving to the Cloud? Are you looking to modernize your datacenter? The industry is constantly introducing new terms, such as Software Defined Storage, that make you wonder if you are protecting your data with the best possible solution. We will discuss new technology that can help you lower costs and get more out of your infrastructure investment. Choose the right storage for your environment that results in a cost savings.
Alan Komet and Peter McCallum have spoken worldwide discussing storage issues, helping businesses make intelligent decisions.
How do IT organizations manage data and control costs across paradigms in a way that does not restrict or prohibit portability? How do IT organizations provide consistent core-to-edge insight, capabilities and data services regardless of the location, vendor or platform? As organizations move to Software-Defined Data Centers, new approaches are required to address long-standing challenges, such as the need for interoperability, insight, and common tools. Modernizing existing infrastructure results in IT organizations needing to achieve greater efficiencies, reduced downtime, lower costs, and improved simplicity in a way that only a software-defined approach can deliver.
Addressing These Challenges With A Unique Architecture
-Choose the right storage paradigm
-For the right service-level
-With the right performance and economic benefit
Join Peter McCallum as he hosts several partners and service providers in a roundtable discussion. Hear what is happening in their business, challenges they are facing and successes. If you’re an Enterprise or Service Provider, you’ll want to participate in this conversation and learn how to be a market differentiator, how to create new revenue streams and offer richer services.
The ability to match service-level performance to economic performance results in decisions many enterprise customers and service providers are faced with making today due to the ongoing transformation of storage environments. How do xSPs offer customer monitoring, reporting, and notification at all levels which are isolated to specific tenants, users, and clients? Digitalization and cloud technology have resulted in better economic performance for enterprise customers and service providers.
Don’t miss an exciting hour of candid conversation between colleagues discussing issues important to you and your business. Get some new ideas, learn new things and ask questions to help solve your business needs.
Digitalization and cloud technology have resulted in better economic performance for enterprise customers and service providers. Workloads can now be located in proper storage destinations - in the cloud, at a hosted provider or on-premise.
Enterprise customers are not only evaluating the storage destination and type but the appropriate hypervisors and operating systems to match the service levels and economic costs of the workloads they need to support.
FreeStor, on its third iteration in less than 18 months, is 100% focused on delivering high-performance block-based storage services that customers need - at public cloud prices. Customers have been in need of such services but have been unable to achieve this level of service with traditional branded suppliers. FreeStor gives customers total choice to build the right destination, on the right storage paradigm for the right price and service level.

It’s time to let your storage infrastructure work for you, not the other way around. Lower the cost of storage hardware, modernize existing infrastructure and take less time to manage and monitor one of your company's most valuable assets: data.
1. Age is GOOD in software
2. Decoupling controller software from the controller is GOOD
3. The same challenges in deploying and maintaining software also exist in HW deployments… so why not use the same methods (i.e. devops!)
4. Drive down storage costs with an integrated, predictive and proactive approach to analytics for an “always-on” storage infrastructure that supports business growth and stability
