  • Avoiding Storage Upgrades: The Battle for Resources in VMware Environments Recorded: Jun 24 2015 14 mins
    George Crump, President & Founder, Storage Switzerland; Rod Bagg, VP of Customer Support, Nimble Storage
    In today’s heavily virtualized data centers, VMware environments have the propensity to become massive battlegrounds over precious resources among VMs. Some VMs become bullies; they consume more than their fair share of resources, causing latency and performance bottlenecks that threaten other workloads by starving out neighboring VMs.

    In this video, guru George Crump of Storage Switzerland and Nimble Storage VP of Support Rod Bagg serve up a detailed whiteboard analysis of VM resource contention, and discuss how a data science approach is instrumental in providing the visibility necessary to resolve the issue, without forcing IT teams to resort to unnecessary storage upgrades.
  • Three Reasons SDS Needs to go Back to School Recorded: Jun 24 2015 59 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    Software Defined Storage (SDS) has fundamentally changed the way storage hardware is purchased by abstracting storage services from the physical hardware. But to reach its full potential SDS needs to go back to school. Join us for this live webinar with George Crump, Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland and Andrew Flint, VP of Marketing at ioFABRIC as they discuss why SDS has more to learn to deliver the next level of efficiency in the data center.

    In this webinar you will learn:

    •How SDS can drive better storage efficiency
    •How SDS solutions can become more automated
    •Why SDS does NOT need to be hyper-converged
  • Software-Defined Storage: Key Benefits and Use Cases Recorded: Jun 23 2015 42 mins
    George Hamilton, Senior Manager, Product Marketing, Emerging Technologies Division
    Software-defined Storage is much more than marketing buzz. Software-defined storage transforms today’s complex storage environments into simple, extensible and open platforms that are more agile and responsive to business users, developers and customers. SDS also delivers modern storage and data services as software-based services that can leverage existing infrastructure or commodity platforms to radically change storage economics and provide a clear path to the cloud.

    Join us to discover how you can use SDS to shift resources from repetitive, manual administrative tasks to innovative new data services that give you a competitive advantage.

  • Orchestrating Harmony: A Practical Guide to Hybrid Cloud Recorded: Jun 18 2015 45 mins
    Nigel Tozer, Product Marketing Director EMEA
    As Cloud use continues to accelerate, IT’s control is becoming more fragmented, with multiple hypervisors and distributed workloads over multiple clouds adding layers of complexity. This leaves the Ops teams with multiple interfaces and difficulty tracking what is going on, with little chance of automating everything that they need to. Due to these issues, data growth and VM sprawl are just as much an issue in public clouds as they are in private clouds; sucking your Opex budget and pushing up costs.

    Join Nigel Tozer as he explores how to manage VM lifecycles in a Hybrid cloud; how to leverage automation for DR and Dev & Test functions in the Cloud; why you need to keep tabs on data in the cloud; and the importance of dashboards and reporting.
  • Hosting is boring - Should you be consuming cloud as a commodity instead? Recorded: Jun 18 2015 39 mins
    Mike Bainbridge, IT Blogger and Solutions Architect
    With the proliferation of cloud technologies and services you don't need an army of system administrators to run your infrastructure. You can buy, build, manage and destroy a platform from your web browser. Is it really that easy?

    Join Solutions Architect and Blogger, Mike Bainbridge, as he explores whether you should shift your IT focus towards consuming cloud services, instead.

    George Crump, Founder of Storage Switzerland and Chris Tsilipounidakis, Product Marketing Manager at Tegile
    Flash storage has become the cure-all for the storage I/O blender created by the virtual server and virtual desktop environment. But the rush to flash has created a few myths about how to use flash for virtualization. In this webinar join George Crump, Founder of Storage Switzerland and Chris Tsilipounidakis, Product Marketing Manager at Tegile as they expose the top 4 myths of flash storage for virtualization. Pre-register for this webinar and receive an advanced copy of Storage Switzerland’s latest white paper “The Guide To Selecting Flash For Virtual Environments” before it is available anywhere else.
  • Hybrid Clouds: Bridging Private and Public Cloud Infrastructures Recorded: Jun 17 2015 44 mins
    Markus Pleier, SNIA Europe Vice Chair
    Every IT consumer is using cloud in one form or another, and just as storage buyers are reluctant to select single vendor for their on-premises IT, they will choose to work with multiple public cloud providers. But this desirable "many vendor" cloud strategy introduces new problems of compatibility and integration. To provide a seamless view of these discrete storage clouds, Software Defined Storage (SDS) can be used to build a bridge between them. This presentation explores how SDS, with its ability to deploy on different hardware and supporting rich automation capabilities, can extend its reach into cloud deployments to support a hybrid data fabric that spans on-premises and public clouds.
  • Hybrid Cloud: A cloud for every stage of the product lifecycle Recorded: Jun 17 2015 40 mins
    Stephen O'Donnell, CEO, CTO, Tech Analyst and Author
    Globally, product lifecycles are shrinking. 50% of annual company revenues across a range of industries are derived from new products launched in the past three years. As time for the development and introduction stages of the product lifecycle shrink, maturity and decline stages need to be more flexible and support change. But how does the modern business facilitate this?

    Join Stephen O'Donnell as he explores why you should use Hybrid Cloud solutions
    to achieve business alignment with product life-cycles, showing that Hybrid Cloud can improve agility, deliver innovation and drive speed.

  • Trusted Crypto in the Cloud: Best Practices for Key Ownership and Control Recorded: Jun 16 2015 47 mins
    Stephen Helm, CTO Office, Identity and Data Protection, SafeNet Gemalto
    Traditionally, organizations needing encryption for cloud applications have had to purchase an HSM and manage encryption keys on premises, or have had to trust the cloud provider with the keys, complicating security and compliance matters. These challenges have prevented many of the most security conscious companies from migrating sensitive workloads and data to the cloud.

    Join Stephen Helm as he explains how you can solve these issues, exploring crypto in the cloud, and providing best practices for key ownership and control.
