How to Lower Latency Using Solid-State Storage in the Host
There are many ways to use flash to reduce storage latency for virtual computing. In this discussion, we will explore the use of server-level flash used in conjunction with existing disk-based storage infrastructure. We will discuss the hardware and software considerations for this type of architecture, and the scenarios in which it’s especially beneficial. We will explore the use of host-based flash in both Hyper-V and VMware vSphere environments, and present some real-world use cases.

The bigger the cloud the greater security threats. The cloud has presented us with so many wonderful opportunities to grow, expand and achieve new opportunities which we never before thought possible. Unfortunately, the cloud is also a breeding ground for attacks and ransomeware trojans. To build a successful and reliable cloud environment depends as much on protection as it does on the infrastructure you choose.
Join members of Ctera and Western Digital as we highlight 4 tips to building a secure, scalable and strong cloud environment. In this webinar we will discuss:
- Where Cyber Attacks are Coming From
- 4 Tips to Protecting Your Environment Against Ransomware
- A secret Tip...Why Object Storage is a More Secure Storage Solution
It's time to protect yo'self before you wreck yo'self.

Hollywood has been innovating for over a hundred years, and storage has been along for the ride. With the onset of the digitization of film, moving from HD to 8K and eventually 16K film, file sizes are soaring! A film that once generated 112GB an hour may soon reach 86TB. Therefore storage has leaped to the forefront of film, becoming a critical factor in how movies are archived, streams are stored, and how much broadcasts and movies will cost.
Jeff Greenwald, Director Sales, M&E; Erik Weaver, Global Director of M&E; and Hal Woods, VP & CTO Data Center Systems of Western Digital as they discuss:
- The Age of Digitization & Future Trends in M&E
- How Technology Transforms the Future of Film
- Storage Solutions for the Future of Film
From the movie set, through the camera, to the big screen, or little screen, it’s time we included ‘storage’ in our closing credits.

Mission-critical databases and business applications serve as the lifeline of many organizations. Therefore, performance is tantamount. In this webinar we’ll review a recent ESG study that confirms running VMware Virtual SAN cluster with SanDisk® flash easily accommodates the performance and cost requirements of an enterprise-class virtualized OLTP database environment and delivers a better price/performance at the same time. Join Patric Chang, SanDisk, Technical Marketing Manager, Jack Poller, ESG Analyst and Jase McCarty vExpert from VMware to learn:
1. Key features, highlights and benefits of VMware Virtual SAN 6
2. Hybrid and All-Flash Virtual SAN Configurations with SanDisk SSDs
3. Performance results (NOPM) of Hybrid and All-Flash VSAN
4. Price/performance and comparisons between Hybrid and All-Flash Virtual SAN configurations
For the bulk of enterprise data, the answer for cost-effective data storage is not always high-performance primary storage, meant for real-time applications, but rather a more-than-adequate-performance afforded by object-based storage.
If you're involved with enterprise storage, even on the periphery, you've probably heard someone talk about Object Storage. If you feel you don't actually know what object storage is, what the buzz is all about and if, and where, it would be appropriate to deploy in your organization - you're not alone.
Join us to learn why object storage matters, the limitations it solves within the data center, why it's become so prevalent in the age of Big Data, and how customers are using object storage today.

Your datacenter is changing because your data is changing. And for modern companies, data is now an asset to be cherished and that means storage matters more than ever!
As you strive to support the ever-expanding demands of the departments you serve, the right kind of storage can make the difference between meeting SLAs and continually waiting for hardware to arrive at the freight dock. Open, software-defined storage harnesses the power of open source technology on standard servers and disks to provide flexible, scalable services that traditional appliances never could. In short, it behaves like the other modern infrastructure you use—and works well alongside it.
In this session, aimed at cloud builders, storage administrators, IT strategists and practitioners, you'll get an introduction to software-defined storage, the value it provides as part of your IT strategy and real-world example of how combining SDS like Red Hat Ceph with InfiniFlash™ can help turn your data into gold!
