  • Freedom To Choose The Right Storage Destination Recorded: Nov 22 2016 58 mins
    Peter McCallum
    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.
  • The Economics of Storage Recorded: Nov 17 2016 61 mins
    Alan Komet and Peter McCallum
    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.
  • The Intelligent Approach to Storage & Virtualization Recorded: Oct 20 2016 56 mins
    Peter McCallum
    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

    It's time to break the cycle of vendor lock-in
  • Roundtable - Challenges and Successes with Service Providers Recorded: Oct 19 2016 63 mins
    Peter McCallum, Moderator
    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.
  • Delivering Upon The FreeStor Vision Recorded: Oct 17 2016 49 mins
    Gary Quinn, President and CEO
    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.

  • SDS Is The Way To Go For Modern Storage Recorded: Aug 17 2016 59 mins
    Farid Yavari, VP Technology and Peter McCallum, VP Datacenter Solutions
    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

  • Changing The Face Of Storage Recorded: Oct 21 2015 60 mins
    Peter McCallum and Steve Ahlgrim
    Join Pete McCallum and Steve Algrhim, long-time infrastructure architects, for a frank discussion on the changing face of storage networking and design. “Storage networking” implies both the interconnected nature of storage resources and their need to communicate over varied distances and topologies. Designing a storage network for a datacenter is a concept usually reserved for greenfield deployments. This is extremely rare as most datacenters, if not all, are already running well-established storage environments and network infrastructures.

    In this session, Pete and Steve will run through their past experiences and customer stories to help define the present and future state of storage and the role it plays in infrastructure design. Topics will range from:
    - greenfield versus brownfield deployment strategies
    - how disaster recovery has evolved into business continuity
    - how the software application layer is changing how we perceive storage
  • Manage Storage Silos and Islands with Software-Defined Storage Recorded: Sep 16 2015 59 mins
    Peter McCallum and Seth Oxenhorn
    Let’s face it; embracing new storage technologies, capabilities, and upgrading to new hardware often results in added complexity and costs. The reality is that when IT equipment, platforms, and applications do not integrate with one another, the resulting “sprawl” of storage islands and silos on disparate systems can be costly, risky, disruptive, and time-consuming. But it does not have to be that way.
  • Overcoming Storage Challenges And Modernizing Your Data Center Recorded: Jun 24 2015 47 mins
    Peter McCallum, FalconStor
    Managing data is more crucial and complex than ever. Businesses are looking for innovative data management solutions that allow them to optimize their business with more flexibility and efficiency. Intelligent Abstraction is an enabling technology that simplifies the movement of information and data services for cloud deployment. When Intelligent Abstraction is introduced into a traditional data center, the cost and complexity of operating that IT infrastructure can be significantly reduced. Open, integrated software solutions reduce vendor lock-in and give organizations the freedom to choose the applications and hardware components that make the best sense for their business, now and as they grow into the future.
Software Defined Storage
FreeStor's unique horizontal architecture opens up a new world of storage opportunities, allowing IT managers to maximize efficiencies and reduce costs. Take advantage of cloud, hybrid/cloud, SDS and Flash storage — without having to invest in new technology or rip and replace.
