  • Optimizing your Cassandra and MySQL environments with SSDs Oct 25 2017 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Esther Spanjer, Director, Enterprise Business Development EMEA, HGST
    Join Esther Spanjer, Director, Enterprise Business Development EMEA, where she will discuss how you can scale up single-instance performance MySQL database with HGST or SanDisk brand SSDs. Esther will address cases where a single instance of MySQL may not be enough, and sharding is necessary – in these cases using these SSDs enables you to extract the maximum performance from the minimum number of servers, thereby avoiding server sprawl.

    HGST or SanDisk brand SSDs are also ideal for Cassandra databases in which queries take too long to return data or in which applications are not meeting their SLAs. This webinar will look at cases where, SanDisk SSDs, potentially in a direct-to-CPU connected NVMe interface form factor, may dramatically reduce query response times and allow you to maintain or reduce your server footprint at massively increased query performance.
  • Optimizing your VMware VSAN configurations with HGST SSDs and HDDs Sep 13 2017 9:00 am UTC 45 mins

  • Advancing Life Science Research with Multi-tiered Flash and Object Storage Recorded: Jun 28 2017 46 mins
    Robert Murphy, Big Data Program Manager, General Atomics
    From sequencer to archive, the genomics data lifecycle can be characterized by brief periods of intense parallel computation, followed by an eternity of relative data at rest. Ever since the mapping of the first human genome, single-tier scale-out NAS and parallel file systems have been the predominant types of storage used in genomics because they were best at providing both high performance when needed — and capacity forever. But they are expensive because that single-tier provides both high performance and capacity all the time, even though high performance is only briefly needed during the genomics data lifecycle. This webcast will demonstrate how HGST innovations in flash and object storage can target and optimize the two genomics lifecycle regimes, delivering extreme performance for computation with flash on the IBM Spectrum Scale parallel file system — and cost effectively keeping genomics data protected and accessible over increasingly longer retention periods with HGST ActiveScale object storage, with the ability to transparently migrate data between flash and object tiers.

  • Control Renegade Data! Options for Storing Unstructured Data Recorded: Mar 15 2017 23 mins
    Erik Ottem, Director Product Marketing, Western Digital
    Unstructured data is like renegade data. It doesn't fit into a spreadsheet with rows and columns, i’s not in an ERP or CRM where you know what kind of data is in each cell, or how it relates to the rest of the data. So how do you create a sense of order among all this data chaos?

    In this webinar you’ll learn about an alternative storage option to overspending on SAN and NAS solutions: object storage. You’ll leave this webinar knowing:

    - What is unstructured data
    - What are the storage challenges
    - The pros/cons of different storage options (SAN,NAS,Object) for scale, performance, durability and cost.

    There are many purposes for storing unstructured data; greater customer insight, exposing security threats, or archiving original media files. The challenge from a storage perspective, is how to create order from the chaos.
