Cloud Computing Architectures with Flash for Boundless Opportunities

Cloud Architects responsible for designing infrastructure for IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, and CDN have critical decisions to make when selecting flash storage solutions based on capacities, interface, and performance attributes. Selecting appropriate flash memory for particular workloads affects node density, cloud services performance, and optimal scale.

To help guide cloud architects through the decision making process for scale-out cloud architectures, Chris Marsh, SanDisk Cloud Marketing Manager, will describe flash solutions for various workloads and the particular SanDisk flash storage product attributes to enable boundless cloud computing.

  • DeepStorage Test Drive: Tegile IntelliFlash T4000AFA Jun 19 2018 5:30 pm UTC 45 mins
    Howard Marks Founder and Chief Scientist Deepstorage; Gokul Sathiacama, Director, Product Marketing, Data Center Systems
    DeepStorage Labs is known in the storage industry for pushing equipment to its limits, and for reporting what really happens at the edge of a system’s performance. Tegile’s IntelliFlash T4000, unlike a few previous occupants of the DeepStorage Labs ThunderDome, stood up to our testing and delivered high IOPS at a maximum of 1MS latency.

    DeepStorage subjected the InteliFlash T4000 workloads from the usual 4KB “hero number” random read to workloads that simulate OLTP and OLAP database servers, a file server and an Exchange server. We determined the systems performance individually and in combination finally determining the system’s ability to support the kind of mixed workload environment

    In this webinar we will:
    - Introduce the IntelliFlash array
    - Describe the testing process
    - Present the results
    - Review the test environment
    - Provide links to the test workload VDbench configurations

  • Performance Databases with Container-Native Storage for OpenShift on SSD & HDD Jun 6 2018 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Earle Philhower III, Sr. Technical Marketing Manager, Western Digital; Daniel Messer, Technical Marketing Manager, Red Hat
    After the initial release of Red Hat’s container-native storage (CNS) solution for OpenShift, a large number of customers had one question: "Can I run a LAMP-stack database on this?" In this webinar, you will find the answer to this question in a first-of-its-kind performance benchmark on hardware provided by Western Digital. The goal is to investigate whether OpenShift, running on VMware, integrated with Gluster as container-ready storage could run MySQL databases, typically found on web application stacks in containers, at sufficient speed. And if so, what is the best storage hardware to use? How much can we push either the storage or container cluster to its limits? We'll share the findings and discuss designing an OpenShift solution suited for such workloads.

  • How to Solve Backup Appliance Sprawl Recorded: Mar 27 2018 23 mins
    Vanessa Wilson, CEO, StorReduce; Victor Nemechek, Senior Solutions Marketing Manager, Western Digital
    Your first backup appliance was great, but how did you feel about your fifth? As data sets explode into the realm of petabytes, most backup appliances can’t scale to meet the capacity needs of a digital company. The lack of scalability forces companies to buy multiple backup appliances, creating the ‘backup appliance sprawl’. The more backup systems companies have to manage, the more time it takes to balance, monitor and maintain.

    Join members of Western Digital and StorReduce to learn about a scale-out deduplication software that enables primary backups to be stored directly on object storage based private or hybrid cloud, eliminating backup appliance sprawl. In this webinar you’ll learn how this technology allows you to:

    •Save up to 70% or more for backup environment TCO while retaining your existing backup applications
    •Reduce hardware refresh cycle for backup appliances
    •Scale as you need without migrations or rip-n-replace hardware changes
    •Build a “Data Forever” environment with extreme data durability

    Just because Easter is around the corner doesn’t mean your backup appliances should be multiplying like rabbits. Register today!
  • ATM EcoCast "Storage, Flash and NVMe EcoCast!" Recorded: Mar 22 2018 31 mins
    Gokul Sathiacama, Director, Product Marketing, Data Center Systems, Tegile
    What You Need To Know

    The storage market has transformed in recent years, with the standalone storage array being attacked from all sides by ambitious rivals vying for customer attention in a world demand more and more from beleaguered IT departments. Today, storage comes in all kinds of forms, from the aforementioned standalone arrays to systems built atop powerful software platforms to fully integrated offerings. We now live in a brave new world in which “buying storage” carries with it far more nuance than in days past. On top of the new choices available in form factor come new choices in media. Flash is now almost a requirement for many products, but that’s not enough for many, either. NVMe is now here to stay and promises to reimagine the data interface in a way that hasn’t been done in a generation.

    With both current and emerging flash storage systems, companies are gaining benefits that were only dreams in the days of the disk-based SAN. Far beyond just providing crazy levels of performance, flash storage systems have the potential to help IT organizations focus on the business and less on technology. After all, when you have IOPS to spare, other metrics can take center stage. These can include latency, cost per gig, power consumption, gig per rack unit, and many more.

    There are a whole lot of vendors in this burgeoning space, with more jumping in every day. Do you truly understand what each of them brings to the table and how they differ? This ActualTech Media 2018 Storage Flash, and NVMe Storage EcoCast is your opportunity to get deep understanding of this technology and gain knowledge about the leading vendors in this transformational market.

  • Using Object Storage to Solve Unstructured Data Problems Recorded: Jan 25 2018 60 mins
    Steven Hill 451 Research, Stefaan Vervaet WD, Molly Presley Quantum
    Business is experiencing an increased dependence on unstructured data, such as complex business documents, work products and large media files. This presents a new and growing set of challenges for IT when it comes to preserving, protecting, monitoring and managing unstructured data at scale; and it’s a problem that affects enterprises and service providers alike. We believe that object storage’s massive scalability and rich metadata capabilities supports the collection of the extended information about the data itself—in the form of metadata—to provide customizable and specific reference points for identifying the contents and automating the management of unstructured data at storage-level throughout its entire lifecycle. To document these challenges, 451 Research – in cooperation with Western Digital’s HGST division – has developed and fielded an annual survey that reaches out to a vetted group of 100 enterprise and 100 service provider customers to evaluate the current nature of the unstructured data problem. This program looks to better establish market perceptions about modern object storage, explore current use cases, and outline customer expectations based on responses to our 2017 poll.
  • HGST-Platforms, the Perfect Homes for Your Storage Devices Recorded: Dec 12 2017 42 mins
    Manfred Berger, HGST - Sr. Mgr. Business Development Platforms EMEA
    In this Webinar Manfred Berger explains why the HGST platforms, also known as JBODs or shelves are the perfect home for HGST hard disk drives and SSDs and how buying that combination as a platform, can look to reduce your integration cycle by up to 3 months. By enabling customers to focus their attention on storage applications rather than the underlying infrastructure, hardware investment turns to revenue sooner. Through proper integration of HGST hard disk drives into dedicated platforms, these hard disk drives can run more reliably and last longer, providing customers with a dependable storage installation they can rely on for their business needs.

  • How to Create A Two Tier Enterprise With All-Flash and Object Storage Recorded: Nov 9 2017 54 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Tegile Systems
    The only problem with the all-flash data center is most of the data (as much as 85%) organizations store is not accessed in more than a year. Assuming there is a more cost effective way to store that data it should be stored on something else. Object storage seems like an obvious choice. Object storage is very cost effective and has features designed for long-term retention. Instead of a single-tier data center, organizations should look to create a two-tier enterprise, and in this webinar we will show you how.
