Managing applications while providing a top-notch user experience can be a challenge to any organization using the traditional systems-centric, bottom-up approach to application management. The bottom-up approach is not scalable to handle the issues and challenges with ever-changing, distributed environments.
Within an end-to-end business service, operations teams rely on having data for each component and setting a threshold or status check for everything that can go wrong. In essence, systems monitoring focuses on looking for what could go wrong instead of focusing on the desired results. The diversity of applications such as Web, Enterprise, Composite, Mobile, and Cloud make the bottom-up approach impossible to deploy and maintain.

The bottleneck in flash storage is often the interface. SAS/SATA interfaces were designed specifically for hard disk drives not for flash media. For example, flash storage can support many more simultaneous I/O operations. The resolution to the problem is to use a different interface, one that is higher throughput and is more directly accessible from the CPU. Leveraging one of these interfaces and extracting optimal performance from the flash media means leaving the confines of the SCSI protocol with customized proprietary drivers. The result is complexity and slow innovation.
Join Storage Switzerland and OCZ, a Toshiba Group Company, for a live webinar “How NVMe Will Change Flash Storage”. In this webinar we will answer these questions:
- What is NVMe?
- Why is NVMe Flash superior to SAS/SATA SSDs?
- Is NVMe Flash superior to proprietary PCIe flash drives?

In this webinar, you will learn:
*How to avoid the common pitfalls of user provisioning.
*How to optimize your user provisioning process.
*How to work with error and exception handling.
*How to automate common tasks and reduce number of emails sent.

As Cybersecurity shifts from the “best practice” environment to being mandated by regulations and prioritized by the high costs for data breaches, IT groups and data center operators are facing multiple challenges. One of these challenges is how to address the security of a mix of legacy storage devices, unencrypted devices, encrypted devices, new technology storage and eDrives in a single environment. Yet another challenge is how to construct a robust, trusted identity-based authentication (or role-based authentication or as a matter of coming the two) to fend off malware and Trojan infection. A system solution that can simplify the security management of mixed drives with high valued data content will be presented. The solution has at least one smart hardware interface controller that performs all security features internally while offers in-line cryptographic performance without degrading data rate.
