Data, you’ve got to have performance to mine it: Virtualizing with Flash

“Data, you’ve got to have performance to be able to mine it” says Michael Briggs, Head of Infrastructure for Cancer Research UK. In this presentation discover how one of the UK’s biggest and most important charities, suffering from serious data overload, was able to not only speed up their data access but also reduce the size of their data to be able to fully utilize the essential information within their records.

Join Darren Soothill as he discusses the realities of virtualizing an infrastructure and speeding up your VDI, virtual servers, databases, analytics and every other application. As Michael Briggs said, “It’s about getting the performance into your storage to be able to leverage the data that’s sitting there.

  • The Art of Storage Management Dec 13 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    George Crump, Curtis Preston
    Any organization that takes a moment to study the data on their primary storage system will quickly realize that the majority (as much as 90 percent) of data that is stored on it has not been accessed for months if not years. Moving this data to a secondary tier of storage could free up massive amount of capacity, eliminating a storage upgrade for years. Making this analysis frequently is called data management, and proper management of data can not only reduce costs it can improve data protection, retention and preservation.
  • Containers: Best Practices and Data Management Services Dec 7 2016 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Keith Hudgins, Tech Alliances, Docker, Andrew Sullivan, Tech Marketing Engineer, NetApp, Alex McDonald, Chair SNIA-CSI
    Now that you have become acquainted with basic container technologies and the associated storage challenges in supporting applications running within containers in production; let’s take a deeper dive into what differentiates this technology from what you are used to with virtual machines. Containers can both complement virtual machines and also replace them as they promise the ability to scale exponentially higher. They can easily be ported from one physical server to another or to one platform—such as on-premise—to another—such as public cloud providers like Amazon AWS. In this Webcast, we’ll explore “container best practices” that discuss how to address the various challenges around networking, security and logging. We’ll also look at what types of applications more easily lend themselves to a microservice architecture versus which applications may require additional investment to refactor/re-architect to take advantage of microservices.

  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask/Mauve Recorded: Nov 1 2016 51 mins
    Fred Knight, NetApp, John Kim, Mellanox, Chad Hintz, Cisco, Dror Goldenberg, Mellanox, J Metz, Cisco
    In this part of the series, “Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” we’re going to be focusing on the network aspect of storage systems.

    As with any technical field, it’s too easy to dive into the jargon of the pieces and expect people to know exactly what you mean. Unfortunately, some of the terms may have alternative meanings in other areas of technology. In this Webcast, we look at some of those terms specifically and discuss them as they relate to storage networking systems.

    In particular, you’ll find out what we mean when we talk about:

    •Channel versus Busses
    •Control Plane versus Data Plane
    •Fabric versus Network

    For people who are familiar with Data Center Technology, whether it be Compute, Programming, or even Storage itself, some of these concepts may seem intuitive and obvious… until you start talking to people who are really into this stuff. This series of Webcasts will help be your Secret Decoder Ring to unlock the mysteries of what is going on when you hear these conversations.

  • SDN — The New Networking Stack Recorded: Jun 15 2016 54 mins
    Dr. Jim Metzler, Co-Founder & Principal Analyst at Ashton, Metzler & Associates; Todd Krautkremer, SVP, Cradlepoint
    In less than a decade, virtualization and cloud technologies have transformed enterprise computing from top (applications) to bottom (storage).

    During this time, computing has evolved from a tiered and operationally isolated architecture of front-end, application, database and storage servers — each tier having its own teams, processes, tools, and manual functions — to a tightly integrated, fully automated “stack” that’s orchestrated with a common set of people and tools.

    Because of this unification and automation of the computing stack, enterprises can now instantly deploy workloads across private and public clouds with ease. While this evolution has been occurring on the computing side of IT, networks have remained largely unchanged. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies are about to change that.

    Join Cradlepoint and analyst Dr. Jim Metzler in a discussion about SDN and NFV and how they are creating the new networking stack.
  • Transactional Analytics Delivers Greater Visibility With End-to-End Monitoring Recorded: May 25 2016 61 mins
    Eric Odell, Dan Iuster, Dana Gilboa
    Poor application performance and crashes cost millions of dollars to businesses globally. Yet, recent surveys show that only 26% of application teams will proactively examine user experience metrics in production. 72% of app teams first learn of UX issues through user complaints.

    Today’s impatient and intolerant user is quick to abandon slow performing, crashing and error prone apps. So it is up to application teams to quickly isolate issues, understand what went wrong and know how to fix it fast.

    Join us for this webinar and learn how HPE AppPulse Trace cuts through the complexity of isolating transaction performance issues. During this live webcast, user experience experts will demonstrate how to correlate performance issues from the user action to service code execution and diagnose issues down to the line of code and log messages.

    During this Webinar, you will learn how to:

    Quickly drill down to server-side transactions for rapid investigation of performance bottlenecks
    Trace transactions from the browser or mobile app all the way to the backend
    Trace all aspects of transaction execution including end-to-end flow, code timing, contextual logs, exceptions and database queries
  • Five Benefits to Using SDS for Emerging Docker and Container Initiatives Recorded: May 18 2016 45 mins
    Rob Whiteley
    As traditional enterprises look to experiment with emerging Docker use cases, the need to connect containers to persistent data or even just to share data between Docker containers becomes more obvious. However, this expansion has proven to be a challenge for infrastructure that relies on monolithic storage arrays. As a result, enterprises are looking to software-defined storage as a more attractive choice because of its flexibility, programmability and ability to provide well-managed, persistent storage. In this talk, you’ll get:

    • What Docker is and is not, as well as container-specific storage challenges
    • Why you need container-specific storage policies, SLAs, and classes of service (CoS)
    • How to leverage software-defined storage solutions for Docker and containers
    • When to use hyperconverged or hyperscale architectures for your Docker initiatives
  • Supercharge your Application Services with Software-Defined Load Balancers Recorded: May 17 2016 50 mins
    Guru Chahal, VP of Product, Avi Networks
    Computing models in today’s dynamic data centers and clouds are changing dramatically. Application-centric enterprises are finding that they need to develop nimble operational models for infrastructure, networking, and application services. Application delivery controllers (ADCs) are an important part of the networking and application services considerations for software-defined data centers.

    New software-defined load balancers are significantly improving the way that application services are delivered and scaled, while freeing IT from repetitive tasks through intelligent automation. Application developers and lines of business are benefiting from better APIs that align with their goals for continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) and cloud-native applications.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    – How to eliminate the overprovisioning and overspending that is typical with traditional hardware-based load balancing solutions?
    – How to scale not just load balancers but also applications, elastically and predictively based on real-time traffic patterns?
    – How to take advantage of x86 servers, VMs, or containers to deliver application services close to individual applications?
    – What are the best ways to support multi-cloud deployments and cloud-native applications?
    – Ways to troubleshoot applications in minutes with the ability to record and replay traffic events, security and client data.
    – How to accelerate application services for SDN environments such as Cisco ACI and private clouds such as OpenStack or for container-based microservices applications?
    – The move to agile infrastructure and operations is already happening and it is now reaching critical networking components in the stack such as ADCs.
