  • How to Solve Backup Appliance Sprawl Mar 27 2018 2:00 pm UTC 30 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!

  • 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.

  • Optimizing Hadoop environments with HGST SSD and HDDs Recorded: Oct 24 2017 44 mins
    Esther Spanjer, Director, Enterprise Business Development EMEA, HGST
    Join Esther Spanjer, Director, Enterprise Business Development EMEA, for this webinar where she will discuss how SanDisk branded SSDs and HGST branded HDDs and SSDs are ideal for environments that run Hadoop databases. This webinar will look at cases where, SanDisk and HGST devices, can dramatically reduce query response times and minimize server sprawl by tuning compute and storage separately. Optimizing your Hadoop environment that suffer from queries that take too long to return data or in which applications are not meeting their SLAs, will enable you to reduce your server footprint at massively increased query performance.
  • Cloudify Your On Premises Data Storage Recorded: Oct 17 2017 21 mins
    Rob Commins, Sr. Director, Product Marketing at Tegile Systems, a Western Digital Company
    CFOs rejoice! CEOs take to the streets in celebration! Ok, maybe it’s not quite that exciting, but did you know that you can get the best of both worlds in storage? One of the biggest challenges in storage has been paying for it. Thanks to trying to plan for exactly how much storage you need right now versus how much you need in the future, people often just overbuy with the expensive hopes that they’ll grow into it.

    You actually have a whole lot of financing options at your disposal to pay for storage, from buying to leasing to simply paying for what you use, just like the cloud. Why pay for storage that you’re never going to actually use?

    And, what happens when your storage gets too old? You buy new. What if you didn’t have to? What if you could pay a bit more in maintenance on your current system in exchange for an upgrade when the time comes?

    Join Rob Commins, Sr. Director of Product Marketing for Tegile Systems, as he takes a deep dive into:

    - Best practices for storing your data in the cloud
    - How to keep cloud storage costs to a minimum
    - How to scale data growth and storage capacity

    Speaker Bio:

    Rob Commins has been instrumental in the success of some of the storage industry's most interesting companies over the past twenty years including HP/3PAR, Pillar Data Systems, and StorageWay. At Western Digital, he leads the Data Center System's business unit's product marketing team.
