Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

The Expert's Guide to Creating the Dream Data Center

For too long, your storage layer remained in the past while other layers of your stack moved to the future. Finally, you have choices that will allow you to disrupt the storage layer and gain competitive advantage with new technologies. Imagine if budget and disruptive operations were of no concern -- what kind of data center would YOU build?

Join former customer of both Rubrik and Pure turned Field Architect of Rubrik, Chris Gurley and Pure's CTO, Chadd Kenney, as they geek out on the dream data center. Beyond storage, we'll also discuss:

- Networking in the modern data center
- Ensuring data security
- Authentication for the savvy IT department

  • Redefining Storage for the Post-Data Lake Era Recorded: Oct 30 2018 14 mins
    Roy KIm, FlashBlade Product & Solutions Marketing, Pure Storage
    Data is the fuel for the modern enterprise. Yet most data is stored in silos, out of reach of analytics and AI applications. The storage industry is largely to blame for offering legacy solutions like data lake and data silos that lock them away. It’s time for the storage industry to step up and deliver a fresh architecture for the modern era. At Pure Storage, we call this new architecture, data hub. Listen in and learn more.
  • Big Data Analytics: What is Changing and How Do You Prepare? Recorded: Oct 25 2018 46 mins
    Ivan Jibaja, Tech Lead, Pure Storage; Joshua Robinson, Founding Engineer, FlashBlade, Pure Storage
    Learn the origin of big data applications, how new data pipelines require a new infrastructure toolset and why both containers and shared storage are the fundamental infrastructure building blocks for future data pipelines.

    We will first discuss the factors driving changes in the big-data ecosystem: ever-greater increases in the three Vs of data volume, velocity, and variety. The data lake concept was originally conceived as a single location for all data, but the reality is that multiple pipelines and storage systems quickly lead to complex data silos. We then contrast the legacy Hadoop applications, which are built only for volume, and the next generation of applications, like Spark and Kafka, which solves for all three Vs. Finally, we end with how to build infrastructure to support this new generation of applications, as well as applications not yet in existence.

    About the Speakers:

    Ivan Jibaja, Tech Lead, Pure Storage Ivan Jibaja is currently a tech lead for the Big Data Analytics team inside Pure Engineering. Prior to this, he was a part of the core development team that built the FlashBlade from the ground-up.
