  • Beyond Backup - a Commonsense Approach to Storage Consolidation Jul 29 2021 3:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    StorONE and Seagate
    Most organizations have five or six different storage systems, often using at least one per workload type in the data center. The multiple storage silos increase storage TCO and complicate data protection. Storage consolidation solves storage fragmentation, but it is a big project, often requiring the organization to "sweep the floor" of many of their current systems. It is an expensive leap of faith.

    But what if there was a better way? What if you could start solving one of your biggest storage challenges right now, backup storage, then evolve that system, as it proves itself, to cover all the workloads in your environment?

    Join Seagate and StorONE for our live Tech-Talk "Beyond Backup - A Common Sense Approach to Storage Consolidation." We'll explain how to consolidate storage by first improving backup storage, then gradually adding archive, NAS, VMware, MS-SQL, and Oracle workloads to the same system using the same software. Learn the first logical approach to storage consolidation that eliminates risk and allows you to continue to add workloads to the same system, as previously purchased storage hardware reaches its end of life.

    During the Tech-Talk, you'll learn the no-risk six-step process to complete storage consolidation:
    1. Modernize backup storage to keep pace with modern backup software
    2. Cost-effectively and transparently archive old data to lower the need for premium-priced primary storage
    3. Consolidate NAS shares into an auto-protecting storage system
    4. Consolidate VMware storage to lower costs, improve data protection and improve performance
    5. Consolidate high-performance databases like MS-SQL and Oracle, onto the same storage platform
    6. Consolidate Cloud Storage to seamlessly move data between cloud and on-premises
  • 5 Ways to Reduce Your Storage Spend Permanently Jul 28 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    StorONE and MK7
    While you might occasionally be able to get a good deal, upfront and long-term storage costs are out of control. IT needs a new strategy to reduce storage spend permanently.

    In this live event, experts from MK7 and StorONE will show you the five steps to permanently lower storage spend:
    o Lower Upfront Costs
    o Lower Data Protection Costs
    o Consolidate Storage Use Cases
    o Eliminate Storage Refreshes and Migrations
    o Implement a Hybrid Cloud Strategy

    Attend the live event and afterward enjoy lunch with us. All live attendees will receive a Domino's gift card for a medium pizza.
  • Backup Storage Targets Need to Change to Keep Pace with Modern Backup Software Recorded: Jul 20 2021 60 mins
    StorONE CEO Gal Naor and CMO George Crump
    The next generation of backup software like Veeam and Rubrik is changing the way organizations protect data. Individual backup jobs are more frequent, smaller in size, and complete more quickly. These modern applications also can recover from a backup almost instantly thanks to their ability to instantiate virtual machines on the backup storage target.

    These modern data protection applications, however, require a more modern backup storage target. Legacy solutions focused primarily on deduplication as a way to keep costs low. The problem is deduplication forces compromise everywhere else. RAID rebuilds take days, making high density (18TB+) drives impractical, and recovery speeds, especially instant recoveries, are egregiously slow.

    Join us for our Tech-Talk featuring, StorONE's CEO, Gal Naor, and CMO George Crump as they discuss the new requirements of modern backup storage:
    • No Compromise Use of High-Density Drives
    • Read-Only Protection of Backup Data
    • High-performance recoveries
    • Future hardware flexibility
    • Beyond backup usability

  • Overcoming the Flash Shortage of 2021 Recorded: Jul 15 2021 38 mins
    StorONE and Seagate
    Flash storage is in short supply. All-Flash Array (AFA) vendors are quoting delivery times of 12 weeks or more and are raising prices by as much as 25% or more. A combination of the short supply of flash storage going into the pandemic-induced worldwide shutdown, the lack of production capabilities during the shutdown, and the rapid increase in demand as we emerge from it are causing this unprecedented shortage of flash supply. It is time to re-think the all-flash array!

    In this live webinar, join experts from Seagate and StorONE as they discuss:
    * The impact of the shortage of flash storage
    * How long will the shortage last
    * How to overcome the shortage now without impacting performance
    * How to reintegrate flash when availability improves

    Pre-register, and we will send you a copy of our white paper, “The Hard Drive Conspiracy,” which explores why flash-only vendors continue to propagate myths about hard disk storage despite evidence to the contrary.

  • Fixing Storage - Three Foundational Shifts Required to Reduce Storage TCO Recorded: Jun 16 2021 55 mins
    George Crump and Gal Naor with StorONE
    Storage Infrastructures are broken. Storage costs, both CAPEX and OPEX, continue to spiral out of control because storage software is unable to take advantage of modern advances in storage media and storage networking. Additionally, this software can no longer count on being bailed out by more powerful CPUs to help hide its inefficiencies; while cores are increasing, processing power per core is not. The disconnect between efficient use of available CPU resources and hardware innovation forces customers to use workload specific solutions and to only benefit from a small percentage of the potential advances in storage hardware.

    Fixing the storage disconnect requires three foundational shifts so that customers can realize the full potential of hardware innovation which then leads to the reduction of storage TCO. The three foundational shifts are:

    ● A More Efficient Storage Engine
    ● A Flatter IO Stack
    ● Coordinated Data Services

  • You Can’t Lower Storage TCO without a Platform Recorded: May 6 2021 60 mins
    StorONE CEO Gal Naor and CMO George Crump
    There are many ways to reduce storage system costs but creating a solution that lowers both the upfront and ongoing operational costs of storage requires breaking from inefficient legacy storage systems. It requires a STORAGE PLATFORM!

    Listen to StorONE CEO Gal Naor and CMO George Crump explain how the only way to permanently lower Storage TCO is for storage vendors to take a holistic approach to the problem. StorONE invested its first eight years re-writing and collapsing the storage stack into a very flexible, streamlined engine of efficiency.

    A holistic approach requires maximizing the utilization and lowering the cost of all the components within every aspect of the storage infrastructure. To tackle this challenge requires rethinking storage software and leaving legacy techniques in the past.

  • Webinar and Demonstration: Storage Snapshots Are Useless, Learn how to fix them Recorded: Apr 9 2021 49 mins
    George Crump and Scott Armbrust with StorONE
    Storage snapshots the most underutilized feature in storage. It is not your fault. They are too limited to be worthwhile. You can't execute them frequently enough or retain them long enough to any real challenges. Why? Because even the most modern storage systems see significant drops in performance when snapshot quantity and age increases.

    StorONE's S1 Enterprise Storage Platform turns snapshots from useless to the most valuable capability in your storage system. What if you could take a snapshot every three minutes and retain it for years? What if you could maintain this type of snapshot strategy and NOT impact performance? S1:Snap delivers these capabilities today!

    George Crump, StorONE's CMO and former Storage Analyst, and Scott Armbrust, StorONE's Technical Marketing Engineer, will explain why StorONE’s S1:Snap technology is superior to any other snapshot on the market. They will also discuss what is possible once you can maintain one million snapshots without impacting performance. Then see our snapshot technology in a live demonstration.

  • 3 Benefits of Reducing RAID Rebuild Times By 10X! Recorded: Jan 28 2021 60 mins
    George Crump, Chief Marketing Officer at StorONE
    RAID rebuild times, the time it takes to bring a volume back to a protected state, is potentially the most critical feature of a modern storage system. The problem is most vendors hide this number from you because their RAID rebuild performance is unacceptable. A slow RAID rebuild does more than put your data at risk; it also wastes precious IT resources by forcing you to allocate additional capacity for protection, and it discourages you from adopting high-density drives.

    In this webinar, StorONE shows you the results of our newest technology, vRAID 2.0. You will see the fastest RAID rebuild from high-density hard drives and flash drives in the industry during the webinar.

    While the rebuilds are happening, we explain the advantage of these rapid rebuild times and how StorONE is the only company with the technology to accomplish it.
