How to Get the Lowest Overall TCO with Windows Virtual Desktop

Now that Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) is generally available, it’s time to discover best practices for deploying highly available, performant, and scalable storage to support your users—storage that also natively supports Active Directory and NTFS permissions.

Microsoft’s newest storage offering, Azure NetApp Files, offers enterprise shared file services that allow you to deploy SMB (Windows) file shares directly onto your private VNET (no internet facing IP), which can easily support FSLogix profile containers and shared files for WVD and Citrix.

Join Microsoft and NetApp experts to learn how to enhance your VDI in Azure with a simple, dynamic, fast file storage service for all your virtual desktop needs.

In this webinar, we’ll cover:
- Tips for getting on-premises or better performance, scale, and security with the lowest overall TCO advantage for your virtual desktop environment.
- A live deployment of Windows Virtual Desktop using FSLogix with Azure NetApp Files.
- A live Q&A with Microsoft and NetApp experts to answer all your virtual desktop questions.

  • Building A Future-Proofed Video Surveillance Solution Apr 7 2020 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Jake Turner, Director of Solutions Engineering, State and Local Govt, Education and Public Health, NetApp
    There’s no question that video surveillance systems can help protect citizens and students, deter crime, and prevent vandalism. To be most effective, cameras must be where activity is taking place – in and around main buildings and facilities, throughout parking lots and garages and on public transportation.

    As organizations grow and evolve their video surveillance deployments, by adding high-definition digital cameras, they can face hidden challenges. Having the right solution in place, including robust data storage can make or break a video surveillance deployment.

    Join us on April 7 at 10 a.m. Pacific/1 p.m. Eastern as our panel of experts discuss the key items to consider when deploying a video surveillance solution including:

    • Choosing the right solution for your current and future needs
    • Building a partnership between IT and the public safety team

  • Enterprise Applications on NetApp AFF SAN​ Recorded: Feb 4 2020 33 mins
    Jeff Steiner
    The foundation of any enterprise application is a storage platform that delivers maximum availability with maximum performance. Features such as convenient backups or online cloning are helpful, but aren't usable unless the foundation itself is enterprise-class.

    This session will review the core features of a NetApp AFF SAN from a reliability and performance perspective, looking at a complete enterprise application environment. Most important, this means nonstop data availability, including recovery from catastrophic controller failures, code upgrades, and complete hardware refreshes. AFF systems deliver six 9s of availability. You can do online migration, and even complete hardware array upgrades, non-disruptively. We'll also cover disaster recovery scenarios, where datasets must be replicated to a remote location (including the cloud), as well as performance and recovery scenarios. Finally, we'll discuss the benefits of NVMe/FC, your next-generation SAN, now available on NetApp ONTAP.
  • NetApp Solutions for Oracle Databases​ Recorded: Jan 30 2020 41 mins
    Jeff Steiner
    Database storage architecture used to be simple. You needed space for a certain number of bytes, and enough IOPS to meet performance needs. If that's all you think about, you're missing the best of NetApp. It's unquestionably enterprise-class storage, but you need to look beyond the LUNs.

    Here is just a small set of the cool things you’ll learn about: Eliminating slow RMAN backups in favor of integrated Oracle backups with no requirement for external software. Cloud tiering, allowing you to use the power of local SSD, including NVMe storage, with the efficiency of cloud object storage, but with central management. Delivering an RPO of zero and a near-zero RTO for databases even at petabyte scales. Filesystem management offloading, to improve performance as well as reduce Oracle license costs. Finally, how to integrate storage management into the larger infrastructure with the new RESTful API's.
