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?

Employees might feel intimidated or overwhelmed with the amount and diversity of business data available to them.
Accessing and harnessing all of that data could be a game changer for them, but they're not sure how to do it. Up until now integrating, analyzing, and understanding all those data sources hasn't been easy, timely, or affordable for your team - not to mention your business users. Your main role has been telling them what they can't do. What if you could offer a comprehensive solution that business groups could use on their own terms - to answer their own questions? Just imagine how your role would change from being a traffic cop to a strategic advisor.
In this webcast, viewers will learn more about:
•Data accessibility for business users and managers: the human element of data
•Managing the backend data infrastructure
•Internet of Things (IoT) and what that means for businesses
•The future of automation in intelligent data systems
Big data operations are built on numerous flows of perishable data that need to travel from a variety of often untraditional, uncurated and unstable sources, through a fabric of transport, storage and compute components and into multiple analytic applications.
The complexity of this new environment for data in motion creates a pressing issue: how does a company ensure that the sum total of the data flowing across a business is complete and accurate, and yet still fresh? In practical terms, how do IT and business units set, meet and enforce service level agreements for their data in motion, so that analytics and operational applications can perform as intended?
At its heart this is a management problem that requires a new paradigm and organizational discipline around the performance management of data flows. The goal of data performance management is to efficiently provide IT with full operational control of the day-to-day data motion landscape along with the agility to gracefully respond to or enact changes in support of their evolving technology or business environment.
In this webinar, 451 Analyst Jason Stamper and StreamSets CTO
Arvind Prabhakar will discuss:
•The state of play for managing data in motion today and the need for adopting a ‘data performance management’ paradigm.
•The objectives and key principles for such a data performance management system.
•Practical advice for building a performance management practice in your organization today.
