Let’s face it, data protection is more broken than ever. Data center initiatives like virtualization and big data analytics as well as the general expectation of users that everything be up all the time, have created an almost impossible set of challenges to which IT planners need to respond. In this live webinar, join experts from Storage Switzerland, HP and Synnex as we provide the three steps to backup, and recovery, success. Those steps are:
* Understand the Problem Facing Data Protection
* Establish Service Level Objectives - Don’t Wait for Agreement
* Select the Right Technology to Meet Objectives and Solve the Problems

Join us for a live webinar in which we examine the reasons why storage costs so much and how to drive down the cost of storage. Pre-register before May 1st and receive an exclusive copy of our latest white paper “How to Improve Your Storage ROIQ?” which will provide a step-by-step guide to improving storage performance and capacity while reducing storage spend.
Making sure everything in the data center is properly protected is a common struggle that all data centers face. The cloud, cloud backup, seems like an answer to all those struggles. But, how exactly does IT make the conversion from on-premises backup to cloud backup? Join experts from Storage Switzerland, Veeam and KeepItSafe and learn; a method to determine if cloud backup is right for your organization and if it is, how to create a plan to begin the transfer to cloud based data protection operations.
An organization’s data is constantly under attack. Whether it’s through ransomware attacks, cyber-threats or employee misguidedness, all expose organizational data and put it at risk. Encryption and access control are the keys to securing data and cyber resiliency, but most storage systems throughout the infrastructure (primary, secondary and protection storage) treat security as an afterthought reducing flexibility and increasing complexity. In this live webinar we will discuss the three reasons why storage security is failing.
Can your backup deliver? Join Storage Switzerland and Aparavi for a live interactive webinar where we will discuss the unstructured data problem, why legacy solutions fall short and the three key capabilities that modern unstructured data protection solutions must deliver so that organizations can extract maximum value from their unstructured data investment.
Data protection is critical to data-driven organizations that are fully dependent on data for operations. The hybrid nature of the environment though makes protecting that much more challenging. Join us as we discuss exactly what Hybrid IT is, what it looks like and why data driven organizations are embracing it. Then we will discuss the data protection challenges that IT must overcome as they create a hybrid infrastructure.
One of the biggest challenges facing IT today is how to effectively protect data distributed between offices and across clouds. Companies with remote and branch locations, and newly merged organizations are all at risk of losing their critical data or ending up with multiple disparate solutions, that are not integrated. This can leave them with data silos, lack of visibility and control over data, and creating risks and compliance issues.
In this live webinar, Storage Switzerland and Cloudian will discuss the three key reasons why object storage is a perfect defense against ransomware:
* Immutability is built in - Data can’t be encrypted
* Replication is built in - Data can be automatically sent off-site
* Data Management is built in - Data can be archived from primary storage, limiting exposure
In this interactive webinar, we will discuss the challenges secondary storage creates, how the cloud might help and where it might fall short. Then, we’ll examine how the cloud, combined with the right services, can help organizations control the secondary storage data deluge.
In this live webinar experts from Storage Switzerland and Commvault will discuss the top 10 reasons that backup breaks and how to fix it. Attendees will learn how they can make backup a reliable and cost-effective IT process, that their organization can count on when they need it most.
Software Defined Storage (SDS) was supposed to take the data center by storm, sweeping IT professionals off their feet on the way to storage management bliss. But, most SDS projects are never actually started or abandoned long before they reach their objective. Why? SDS is Broken.
In this live webinar we will discuss the challenges facing legacy SDS solutions and how the next generation of SDS plans to fix it.

Organizations looking to deploy database applications, like Cassandra, Postgres and Couchbase, need persistent storage so if the instance fails data survives. Many storage vendors are jumping on the “containers” bandwagon, but the level of support and understanding of the true need varies.
Join experts from Datera, Portworx, StorageOS, Storage Switzerland, Virtuozzo and WekaIO for a roundtable discussion on “The State of Persistent Storage for Containers.” In this webinar we will discuss why persistent storage for containers are still needed, what are today’s use cases for it and what the future holds.
Register now to join us for the live roundtable event on April 17th at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT
The biggest challenge any enterprise has to get over when migrating workloads to the cloud is SCALE! Large organizations have massive amounts of data; thousands of virtual machines and hundreds of terabytes of data. With this level of scale, migration to the cloud is much more than just copying data from a source site to a destination cloud.
There are four challenges to be considered while performing large scale migrations that the enterprises need to overcome to establish a truly viable cloud strategy.
Hyperconverged Infrastructures (HCI) offer management simplicity and provisioning agility to data centers undergoing digital transformation. When applications need more compute or storage resources, IT can "simply add a node” to an existing HCI cluster. But as the HCI environment scales out, complexity increases and network resources become a significant architectural consideration, often with significant unexpected costs that can blow your HCI budget.
Storage refreshes are something that every data center goes through. However, the most painful are NAS refreshes. It is not just the painful migration of data from the old NAS to the new NAS but also the tedious process of making sure security and access controls are set correctly. Additionally, each refresh gets more difficult, because unstructured data keeps growing. It is time to get off the NAS treadmill and consider the cloud for NAS services.
Cloud for NAS services is now a reality thanks to new hybrid cloud models. Users can benefit from improved performance thanks to local flash performance and organizations benefit from cost effective cloud storage and breaks the endless storage refresh cycle.

When it comes to cyber-risk, the most exposed part of any organization is also the least protected; endpoints. Much of the data on laptops and other devices is unique and not stored on storage owned by the organization, but endpoints are often the first casualties of a cyber-attack. Given the new threat organizations need to provide complete protection, which not only includes protection from device failure but also ransomware attacks, device theft and litigation response.
The challenge for IT is providing this protection without disrupting the user. If the protection solution gets in the way of the user, they will disable it, putting not only their data at risk but leaving the organization open to data loss and cyber-breach.
In this live webinar, learn the four requirements of complete endpoint data protection:
1. Truly Transparent Protection (silent deployment, bandwidth optimization, quick cache)
2. Deployment Flexibility - On-premises, Public Cloud or Private Cloud
3. Total Encryption - Protect data in-flight and at rest
4. Beyond Backup Features - Remote wipe, Legal hold
Three primary storage challenges that keep IT up at night:
1. How to keep up with application performance demand
2. How to affordably manage and store the vast amount of data that IT has to store
3. How to protect that data so that applications can quickly return to service if a server, storage system or entire data center fails
To meet these challenges IT has either used multiple solutions from multiple vendors, creating cost overruns and massive complexity or they have to try to consolidate to a single vendor via hyperconvergence or cloud migration leading to inefficient use of resources and feature shortfalls.
In this live webinar, join Storage Switzerland and Cloudian as we describe three ways cloud storage and on-premises storage can complement each other.
Learn how the new world of multi-cloud storage coupled with scalable on-premises storage can:
Achieve limitless scalability and seamless capacity expansion
Enable unified data management across clouds and on-prem
Consolidate object and file data to a single storage environment
Reduce costs and eliminate complexity
Is your organization ready for any disaster 2018 may throw at it? Organizations not only face new threats they also encounter decreased tolerance for downtime from users. The good news is there are plenty of new solutions that claim to improve an organization’s ability to recover from a disaster. But which one makes the most sense for your organization? And what about your processes? Recovery technology needs to partner with solid DR processes in order for an organization to see its way through the challenges ahead.
