  • Turnkey Private Cloud for SMBs and Enterprises Recorded: Feb 2 2017 48 mins
    Narendar Shankar, President, Julian Chesterfield, Director of Emerging Technologies, Carlos Rego, Cheif Vissionary Officer
    Private cloud doesn't have to be complex. In fact, it shouldn't be complex, because your customers just want it to work. While there are countless different ways to build on-premise clouds, there's a secret most vendors have missed: private cloud should be easy. Easy to buy, easy to deploy, easy to manage and easy to use.

    This session will cover the real USPs of private cloud for SMB and enterprise customers, and introduce a new turnkey, white label 'private cloud in a box' solution that combines the OnApp cloud management platform with Intel server, storage and networking products.

    - what makes a cloud a cloud?
    - removing complexity and adding value
    - use cases & selling points
    - solution brief
  • Enterprise Applications and Persistent Storage with Docker Containers Recorded: Jan 25 2017 48 mins
    Andrew Sullivan, Technical Marketing Engineer, NetApp
    Docker® containers have emerged to provide the agility that development teams need while delivering the stability and reliability required by IT operations. Developers can bring existing applications into the Docker ecosystem while building new applications using microservice design principles. IT-operations teams can benefit from reduced complexity and faster deployment of containerized applications.

    Typically, Docker containers do not retain data after being restarted or retired. A container’s ephemeral nature presents challenges for containerizing many common Enterprise applications, from databases to home-grown tools, where data must be retained or when a container must share its data across multiple Docker hosts. Docker and NetApp solve these issues and more with the NetApp® Docker Volume Plugin (nDVP).

    The nDVP adds persistent storage capabilities to Docker containers, which gives developers the ability to enable data persistence in applications that use Docker container technology along with enterprise storage features such as transparent scalability, high availability, encryption, data deduplication, and seamless replication.
  • Using Storage Infrastructure as an Accelerator of DevOps Maturity Recorded: Jan 19 2017 52 mins
    Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate, NetApp
    Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage is more capable than where we read and write data.

    In this session we’ll discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
  • Turn Your Data Center into Your Very Own Public Cloud Recorded: Dec 7 2016 56 mins
    Sanjay Jagad, Sr. Manager, Product Marketing, Cohodata; Suzy Visvanathan, Director, Product Management, Cohodata
    Companies are actively looking to transform their highly virtualized data center into a dynamic on-premise private cloud that offers the same benefits as the public cloud. Today’s dedicated infrastructure offerings fail to address the growing demands and higher service levels needed for today’s applications. They lack the advanced capabilities like elastic scale, flexibility, management automation, and usage-based tracking to deliver IT as a Service (ITaaS) for their tenants. A modern dynamic data center necessitates the need for a modern software-defined infrastructure. An infrastructure that can be dynamically provisioned across a pool of compute, network and storage resources, thus reducing and eliminating the planning and complexity associated with application sizing, provides much more flexibility and allows for future proofing and investment protection.
    For companies considering whether or not to use the public cloud versus staying with or building their own data center, there are three primary factors affecting their decision: business needs, data security and total cost of operations (CAPEX/OPEX).

  • Flash for All, Bottlenecks for None Recorded: Nov 29 2016 51 mins
    Prabu Rambadran, Director of Product Marketing at Nutanix
    Enterprises are widely adopting hyperconverged infrastructure to transform the way they deliver IT services. At the same time, with dropping prices and increasing storage density, we’ve reached an inflection point that is transforming decisions around all-flash deployments as well. If HCI is the path to the future shouldn’t your storage decisions reflect that? Migrate your mission-critical applications running on bare-metal or virtualized Oracle and SQL Server to a scale-out all-flash hyperconverged platform. With emerging technologies such as NVMe and 3D XPoint coming into the market, this session will dig into the new realities for enterprise datacenters and ways to deploy flash.
  • Application I/O Analytics and Optimization Recorded: Nov 15 2016 65 mins
    Ranajit Nevatia, CEO, Datagres; Paul Yeatman, Enterprise Solutions and Support Specialist, Datagres
    Without sufficient detail and information, admins are limited in knowing how well the I/O is traveling within the data center, where bottlenecks exist, and where improvements can be made.  As data centers are often managed by multiple teams, it becomes difficult to determine which team is responsible for certain issues or areas of improvement and thus makes it easy to always blame the other team.  Recognizing the need for I/O visibility in the data center, DATAGRES created PerfAccel.  As a software-only solution that is installed on the individual application servers, it is fully aware of each and every I/O that occurs from the application servers all the way back to the storage servers and can accelerate application performance with dynamic data placement at the same time.

  • True Enterprise Class Centralized NVMe Storage From E8 Storage Recorded: Oct 18 2016 52 mins
    Ziv Serlin - Director System Architecture, E8 Storage, Ron Herrmann - Director Sales Engineering, E8 Storage
    E8 Storage has been a member of the Intel Developer program for several years.  At the Flash Memory Summit in August, E8 Storage emerged from stealth mode with the announcement of their centralized NVMe storage solution, the E8 D24, using Intel dual-ported SSDs.  E8 Storage is the first vendor to bring to the market a true enterprise class centralized storage array using dual-ported Intel drives.  This solution provides amazing performance (up to 10M IOPS in a 2U form factor) and Enterprise class storage features such as controller and path failover (made possible by using Intel dual-ported SSDs).   This webinar also illustrates some of the testing that E8 Storage has done with the Intel dual-ported SSDs and how failures can now be overcome with this new architecture.
