  • The Data Fabric Transforming the Datacentre Apr 29 2015 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Laurence James, NEMEA Product Alliances and Solutions, NetApp
    According to IDC, in the next two years, over 60% of companies will stop managing most of their IT infrastructure, relying on advanced automation and qualified partners to boost efficiency and directly tie datacenter spend to business value. In 2015 and beyond Cloud and Software Defined approaches will therefore continue to shift IT purchasing models. While the adoption of new business models continues at pace, the demand for storage will grow. This places broader pressures on IT Managers to manage their resources and budgets more effectively. The requirement for consistent Data Management supporting Data Governance and Stewardship will be a mandatory requirement in these Cloud and Software Defined migration Strategies. The need for a single, consistent, coherent data management process and methodology will be foundational, underpinning the concept of the Data Fabric enabled by Clustered Data ONTAP

    Join Laurence James as he discusses how Data Fabric could present the most powerful solution and demonstrates that while the standard model for IT provisioning and management is going through a revolution, the requirement for strong data management in a hybrid IT world will be paramount .
  • Changing Nothing Risks Everything: A New Approach to Backup, Recovery & Archive Apr 29 2015 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Tim Nolte, Project Manager, HP
    Businesses are struggling to keep up with unpredictable demands, extreme data growth, and aggressive service-level agreements related to application and data availability. IT management is changing, and there is need for greater application administrator control over backup and recovery. Research shows that most enterprises have not significantly updated their data protection processes in the last 5-7 years. This has resulted in highly fragmented environments with multiple copies of information owned and protected in silos—in turn elevating cost and complexity. The need is there, and customers are aware of current data protection shortcomings

  • Decoupled Storage: All Flash Performance Without An All Flash Array Apr 28 2015 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Nick Suh, Head of Product and Solution Marketing, PernixData
    Virtualization has revolutionized the modern data center. But traditional storage systems are struggling to keep pace, introducing performance bottlenecks and unnecessary cost and complexity. Flash offers the potential for relief, but where is it ideally placed – in the server, storage or both? And what software is required to best utilize this resource? PernixData FVP software enables an architecture decoupling storage performance from capacity to utilize high speed server media in conjunction with shared storage to deliver the maximum VM performance at the lowest cost.
  • Snapshots: Can you keep the beauty but lose the beast? Apr 28 2015 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Nigel Tozer, EMEA Product Marketing Director
    Let’s be straight about this: snapshots are real beast to tame. Snapshots can devour space, make recovery harder, make protection riskier and lock you into hardware platforms that will drain your budget. It’s the reason why you probably only rely on them for a few critical systems today. But it doesn’t’ have to be this way; they could form the cornerstone of your modern IT data protection.

    Reverting to a previous snapshot after a terminal data corruption is a beautiful thing. Near instant, from an almost impact free protection operation. In a perfect world, modern IT would rely on array based snapshots and integrated copy/replication as the only protection method.

    In this session, Nigel Tozer will discuss the reality, and show you how to:

    - Significantly reduce the cost of array snapshots
    - Dramatically simplify the recovery of tier 1 & 2 applications
    - De-risk the protection of high workload VMs
    - Remove the risk and cost of scripting to manage snapshot integration
    - Break disk vendor lock-in
    - Enable Cloud DR and Dev & Test
