  • Overcome Storage Performance Challenges in Video Production and Management Recorded: Oct 9 2019 17 mins
    Dave Montgomery, Director of Platforms, Western Digital
    From surveillance cameras to movie production, high-definition video is used everywhere, and the file sizes, production, and management challenges can quickly become major issues. As requirements for video production or management become even more demanding – both in performance and capacity requirments – standard “whitebox” configurations can quickly become overwhelmed. To overcome today’s challenge and ensure your infrastructure is “futureproofed” for the inevitable advancements in high-def video, organizations must pay close attention to how its infrastructure, including the data center and edge, is designed to meet the ever-evolving performance, scalability, and density demands.

    We invite you to join us for this upcoming webinar where you will learn:
    >Why standard “whitebox” configurations can quickly be overwhelmed
    >How flexible and scalable storage servers can improve production and management of the most demanding Media & Entertainment applications
    >How Western Digital is bringing new levels of performance, scalability, and density for cost-sensitive data center and edge environments
  • Data Center 2.0: The Move to a Data @ the Center Architecture Recorded: Oct 2 2019 17 mins
    Erik Ottem, Senior Director, Data Center Systems
    In traditional thinking, the data center is a site where the collection of servers, storage, networking, and applications reside to provide IT services to the entire company. A sophisticated infrastructure has been developed to protect system availability with standards for data protection and new application introduction and testing; however, this model is increasingly outmoded as new types of data, such as sensor, log, IOT, audio, and video provide the opportunity for improving operations, customer interaction, and market understanding.

    Business departments have long created their own IT capabilities to meet their business objectives, resulting in siloes of isolated IT infrastructure where data is trapped and almost impossible for the company to fully leverage. As a result, the data center, ironically, no longer serves as the central repository of business data. But, there is a better way! Data Center infrastructure is the focus, but it’s time to return to the data center’s roots – the data. Data is the key element for business success, but to drive true competitive differentiation – and ultimately business success – we need to put Data @ the Center of decision making.

    Join Erik Ottem, senior director, Data Center Systems at Western Digital Corporation, as he shares tips on how to get the most from IT by focusing on the data and ensuring your organization is truly putting Data @ the Center of its decision making process.
  • SAP HANA® Memory Expansion - On-Premises and Cloud at a Better TCO Recorded: Sep 10 2019 31 mins
    Chris Marsh, Product & Solution Marketer @ Western Digital & Nir Paikowsky
    SAP HANA data sets are growing to multiple terabytes. But growing SAP HANA data sets doesn't have to mean a significant increase in computing infrastructure costs to scale HANA for cloud or on-premises deployments.

    - How to scale TBs of system memory for SAP HANA data sets at a better TCO
    - How to manage HANA On-Premises deployments and HANA Cloud Infrastructure/Services
    - How to expand HANA server memory in a cost-effective manner vs. DRAM configurations
    - How a better HANA compute infrastructure TCO can be achieved using Ultrastar® DC ME200 Memory Extension Drive to scale HANA memory pools with fewer nodes and at a reduced DRAM costs

  • How to Manage Your Data Growth with Oracle® or SQL Server® Recorded: Sep 4 2019 17 mins
    Matthew Morris, Sr. Solutions Manager, Data Center Systems, Western Digital
    There is no slowing down the amount of data that companies are collecting, managing, and trying to decipher to understand how to shape their business, both today and for the future. With all of this data, there are growing constraints on how it can be stored and leveraged for actionable insights, and there are a number of technology considerations and questions, including, for example:

    >Is it better to store in the cloud or deploy a hybrid cloud initiative?
    >What’s the difference between scaling out and scaling up? Which should we consider?
    >How do you manage your data growth Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server?

    In this webinar, we will answer those questions while also sharing how IntelliFlash NVMe™ simplifies data management challenges. We will dive into the traditional infrastructure elements, such as capacity, performance, and consumption of data, and how Oracle and SQL Server databases have developed scale-out and scale-up approaches. We will provide guidance on how to work with these topologies. Through various use-cases, we will share the impact that these architectures can have on infrastructures, specifically how NVMe and/or all-flash arrays enable a flexible, scalable infrastructure that accelerates time to insights.
