  • Hybrid Cloud: Is Software-Defined Storage the Missing Piece of the Puzzle? Recorded: Feb 14 2018 44 mins
    Gaurav Yadav, Software Engineer at Hedvig
    The inevitable march to the cloud has begun and Hybrid Cloud is a huge milestone in that journey. It’s easy to use on-prem infrastructure and public cloud in parallel for your workloads, but a lot of friction occurs when these two worlds come together. High Availability, security, and interoperability are just a few. Demand for Data Sovereignty and GDPR throws another wrench into the mix. Storage solutions need to keep up with evolving demands and SDS will play a huge part in making Hybrid Cloud a reality.

    In this session we'll look at:
    - Common pitfalls when building or transitioning to a Hybrid Cloud infrastructure
    - The effect of different use cases on Hybrid Cloud implementation
    - The future of Hybrid Cloud and how to get there

  • Span Private and Public Clouds: Developing a Multi-Cloud Strategy with SDS Recorded: Oct 18 2017 47 mins
    Eric Carter, Sr. Director Product Management at Hedvig
    How can enterprise IT operate more like AWS? That is the defining technology question of the decade. Hyperscale computing models pioneered by AWS catapulted “cloud” to the top of the IT agenda. This model fuels digital business, creates tectonic shifts in IT spending, and upends legacy IT infrastructure vendors. But should today’s CIOs build or buy their own cloud? The simple answer: both. We live in a multi-cloud world. A hyperscale strategy balances digital services across private and public clouds.

    In this session we'll provide:
    -Lessons learned from building two of the world’s largest distributed systems: Amazon Dynamo and Facebook's Cassandra.
    -How to develop a multi-cloud strategy for modern data centers that accommodates both virtualized and containerized applications.
    -Where software-defined storage fits into this strategy to help data span cloud boundaries and avoid cloud lock-in.

  • Create Hybrid Cloud Stretched Clusters Using VMware, AWS, and SDS Recorded: Aug 15 2017 43 mins
    Chris Kranz, Solutions Architect, Hedvig
    Enterprises are evolving their vSphere environments from standard DR configurations to high availability (HA) architectures. VMware vSphere Metro Storage Cluster is a key capability in this evolution. Parallel to this, companies are embracing hybrid cloud and AWS in particular. In many cases enterprises treat AWS as a passive DR site. But what if you could evolve AWS to be part of an HA stretch cluster? That’s where software-defined storage (SDS) comes in.

    SDS solutions provide the flexibility to run on commodity servers as well as cloud computing instances. Couple that with advanced multi-site replication, per-VM storage policies, deduplication, snapshotting, cloning, and VMware’s recent announcement with AWS, and SDS is now the ideal enabler for automated failover in a hybrid cloud stretched cluster.

    In this session we’ll:
    - Provide an architecture for software-defined storage running a stretched cluster between a private vSphere cloud and AWS.
    - Discuss how this provides seamless failover, HA, DR, and cloud bursting—all at scale.
    - Highlight how data efficiency techniques like deduplication, thin provisioning, auto-tiering, and caching optimize hybrid cloud economics.

    Chris is a VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX) and senior solutions architect at Hedvig. Chris has in-depth experience in cloud, virtualization, storage, data center, and software-defined technologies gained from his work across numerous practices including web development, systems administration, and consulting. His advisory expertise helps customers better adopt and adapt to the technologies that best fit for their business requirements.

  • Future-Proof Your Private Cloud with Software-Defined Storage Recorded: Jan 24 2017 47 mins
    Rob Whiteley, VP of Marketing, Hedvig Inc.
    Many large organizations either can’t or won’t go all-in on the public cloud. Regulatory compliance, legacy infrastructure, and costs drive these organizations to build private clouds. Do you invest in VMs or containers? Do you use OpenStack, Kubernetes, or Mesos to orchestrate your cloud? How will you bridge your private cloud with AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google Compute Cloud? You need a flexible architecture that not only embraces all the above, but facilitate frictionless movement among them.

    Specifically, you’ll learn how you can use software-defined storage to:
    1. Support any hypervisor, container, or cloud platform – simultaneously.
    2. Plug into any cloud orchestration tool to automate your private cloud.
    3. Integrate public cloud – and not just bolt it on – when you’re ready.
    4. Create self-service storage and sandboxes for DevOps environments.
  • Multi-Cloud Primary Storage: Building a Single Storage Cluster to Span any Cloud Recorded: Nov 16 2016 46 mins
    Rob Whiteley, VP of Marketing
    The journey to the public cloud is underway. A recent survey found that typical enterprises augment their private data center with six public cloud providers. But how do you enable applications and services to span all of these clouds? The agility and flexibility benefits of the cloud are lost if you simply lift and shift infrastructure silos to multiple clouds. However, advances in software-defined storage provide a "universal data plane" that synchronizes data across private and public clouds. Watch this webinar to learn how you can create a multi-cloud primary storage solution that can span any cloud, including a demo of storage that spans AWS, Azure, and Google.
  • Data Synchronization in the Cloud with SDS Recorded: Sep 21 2016 36 mins
    Rob Whiteley, VP of Marketing
    Software-defiend storage can dramatically improve the economics of your datacenter. The power of commodity hardware with storage software lowers costs by 60% or more. But what if you’re going to the public cloud? Software-defined storage helps there. In fact, for many enterprises, it’s accelerating their journey. Watch this webinar to learn how software-defined storage can synchronize data across private and public clouds, enabling true application portability.
  • Stretched Clustering for VMware with Hedvig Software-defined Storage Recorded: Aug 23 2016 36 mins

  • Five Benefits to Using SDS for Emerging Docker and Container Initiatives Recorded: May 18 2016 45 mins
    Rob Whiteley
    As traditional enterprises look to experiment with emerging Docker use cases, the need to connect containers to persistent data or even just to share data between Docker containers becomes more obvious. However, this expansion has proven to be a challenge for infrastructure that relies on monolithic storage arrays. As a result, enterprises are looking to software-defined storage as a more attractive choice because of its flexibility, programmability and ability to provide well-managed, persistent storage. In this talk, you’ll get:

    • What Docker is and is not, as well as container-specific storage challenges
    • Why you need container-specific storage policies, SLAs, and classes of service (CoS)
    • How to leverage software-defined storage solutions for Docker and containers
    • When to use hyperconverged or hyperscale architectures for your Docker initiatives

  • Four Storage Strategies To Help You Think Differently About Hybrid Cloud Recorded: Nov 10 2015 46 mins
    Rob Whiteley, VP of Marketing, Hedvig
    Your world will be hybrid for the foreseeable future. You will combine a mix of on-premises private cloud and public cloud infrastructure to meet ever-changing business demands. But how do you build a storage architecture designed to support this hybrid world?

    This session will provide insight on how software-defined storage facilitates hybrid cloud architectures. We’ll present four scenarios and case studies where companies are thinking differently about “cloud storage.”

    Specifically, you’ll learn how you can use software-defined storage to:
    1. Build an OpenStack “landing pad” to onboard applications born in public clouds like AWS.
    2. Create hybrid AWS-based applications with on-premises infrastructure that migrates older, colder data to the public cloud.
    3. Treat public clouds as “DR sites” where applications are automatically protected across data centers and clouds.
    4. Store data on private, hosted infrastructure that bursts to the public cloud for compute.
