  • Build an Agile and Elastic Big Data Pipeline Recorded: Feb 15 2017 55 mins
    Deba Chatterjee Director of Products, Robin Systems
    To stay competitive in today's global economy, organizations need to harness data from multiple sources, extract information and then make real-time decisions. Depending on the industry and the organization, Big Data encompasses information from multiple internal and external sources. Capturing, integrating and preparing this data for downstream analysis is often time-consuming and presents a big challenge. Today, organizations are struggling to cobble together different open source software to build an effective data pipeline that can withstand the volume as well as the speed of data ingestion and analysis. Robin relieves customers from the pains of building and maintaining a data pipeline and helps enterprises to make the most of Big Data.

    In this webinar, we will focus on how Robin’s containerization platform can be used to:

    - Build an agile and elastic data pipeline
    - Deploy, scale, and manage the most complex big data applications with just a single click of a button
    - Deal with variety, velocity, and volume of enterprise Big Data
  • Containerizing your Existing Enterprise Applications Recorded: Nov 17 2016 62 mins
    Adeesh Fulay, Director Products, Robin Systems
    Traditional enterprise applications are the lifeblood of any business. However, most companies are still struggling to deploy and operate these applications using the existing data center infrastructure and tooling. This puts enormous burden on application developers and IT administrators to manually deploy applications and its dependencies, manage data lifecycle, and deliver the desired quality of service, all while meeting business SLAs.

    Containers are lightweight, fast, agile, and solve all dependency issues related to the applications. Unfortunately, container technology like docker has seen adoption mostly amongst new age applications - stateless, cloud-native, mobile, etc. Does this mean your existing enterprise application continue to suffer their current fate and not benefit from the advantages of containers?

    In this session, we will talk about how containers can help create a fluid, elastic, and application-aware infrastructure platform that simplifies application management, accelerates time to market, and reduces costs by eliminating infrastructure silos for not just your modern applications, but also your existing enterprise application. We will demonstrate how Robin Containerization Platform combines containers, storage, networking, and application orchestration to instantly deploy, snapshot, clone and time-travel applications, consolidate workload with guaranteed performance, and increase hardware utilization 2-3x.
  • Containerizing Oracle: Not thinking about it yet? You should be! Recorded: Oct 13 2016 63 mins
    Deba Chatterjee, Director of Product Management
    Still running your databases on underutilized bare metal
    servers? Looking to consolidate your databases and reduce license costs, but not create an OS sprawl? If the answers are YES, then join us to see how Linux containers technologies like docker and LXC can help.

    We will explore how to use containers to consolidate databases without compromising performance while guaranteeing isolation and no manageability change. We will examine and contrast other prevalent consolidation approaches, along with the roadblocks they present and how containerization helps you overcome those problems.

    Additionally, we will show you the following:
    1. Configure an Oracle RAC database on LXC
    2. Apply IO resource management on your Oracle database running in a container
    3. Simplify database lifecycle management tasks with single click clone, time travel.
  • Are Containers Ready to Run NoSQL Databases? Recorded: Aug 25 2016 61 mins
    Adeesh Fulay, Director Products
    The database is the quintessential data dependency for any application. Databases in production environments tend to be performance sensitive and expect consistent and predictable performance from their underlying infrastructure. On the other hand, databases in dev/test environments need to be fast, agile and portable.

    Due to this paradox, production databases are typically deployed on bare metal servers for maximum performance and predictability. This often leads to underutilization of hardware, idle capacity, and poor isolation. On the other hand, dev/test databases are deployed on VMs which are fast to deploy, improve hardware utilization and consolidation, are fully isolated, and are easy to move across data centers and clouds, but suffer from poor performance, hypervisor overhead and unpredictability.

    In this session, we will discuss:

    - How NoSQL databases like Cassandra can benefit from container technology
    - If the current storage systems can support containerized databases
    - How to alleviate data management challenges for large databases
    - How the Robin Containerization Platform can deliver bare-metal-like performance, while retaining all virtualization benefits
  • Application-Defined Data Center: The Next Stop in Datacenter Evolution Recorded: Jul 26 2016 56 mins
    Jay Lyman, 451 Research and Sushil Kumar, Robin Systems
    Applications - the lifeblood of modern business - can be in a sorry state of affairs given today's forced alignment with server, OS, and storage boundaries. This can not only cause deployment delays and complexity, but it also results in underutilized hardware and inflated operational costs. There is a drive to embrace new technologies and methodologies in the enterprise, but this presents significant challenges. Limited application-awareness at the infrastructure level makes it nearly impossible to deliver on the promised SLAs and the tight coupling of applications and underlying operating software (OS or hypervisors) compromises application portability as well as developer productivity.

    A growing number of enterprises are turning to application containers to support more efficient and effective development and deployment in an application-centric IT paradigm. By abstracting applications from the underlying infrastructure, containers can simplify application deployment, and enable seamless portability across machines and clouds. Containers can also enable significant cost savings by consolidating multiple applications per machine without compromising performance or predictability. Join us to learn more about container adoption in the enterprise and how a container-based server and storage virtualization environment can help take your software-defined datacenter transformation to the next level of an application-defined datacenter.

Container-powered, Application-Defined Data Center
Robin is heralding a new data center era with its Application-Defined Data Center software. Robin’s application-centric, software-defined compute and storage infrastructure leverages containers to make server, storage and VM boundaries invisible to applications. The result? Dramatically simplified application lifecycle management, maximum hardware utilization, and guaranteed application-to-spindle QoS.

Robin is the first company to bring the benefits of containerization to mission-critical enterprise applications -- such as databases and Big Data clusters -- to enable high-performance workload consolidation with the agility and flexibility previously available only to stateless microservices applications.
