Snapshots have been a key feature of primary storage infrastructures that IT professionals have relied on for years. But storage systems have traditionally been able to support only a limited number of active snapshots. And snapshots, being pointers and not actual data, are also susceptible to a primary storage system failure. As a result, most IT professionals use snapshots sparingly for protecting data. In this webinar Storage Switzerland and Nexenta show you how primary storage can be architected so that snapshots are able to meet almost all of the data protection requirements an organization has.

The All-Flash era is well upon us, and most data centers consider an all-flash product storage tier both realistic and practical. But the flash industry continues to march on. New technologies like NVMe and ultra high-density flash modules promise to continue all-flashes march to data center dominance. Join us for this live webinar and we will help you design your plan for 2018.
As an organization grows the number of use cases the data center needs to support increases with it. What starts out as a NAS for file sharing, moves to a SAN for database applications, and then storage for data protection. As the organization hits full stride it might look at arching to limit growth and a mobility solution to support a distributed workforce. The problem is each one of these storage types are silo’ed and have to be implemented, operated and maintained separately. As a result, storage ends up consuming a large chunk of the IT budget.
The sixth year of Amazon RE:Invent is almost upon us (November 27 to December 1 in Las Vegas). In this webinar join Storage Switzerland, Avere Systems and SwiftStack for a storage professional’s guide to the event.
- The different tiers of the Amazon storage offering
- How to create hybrid cloud storage combining private and public offerings
- Learn how to interconnect multiple cloud providers
The only problem with the all-flash data center is most of the data (as much as 85%) organizations store is not accessed in more than a year. Assuming there is a more cost effective way to store that data it should be stored on something else. Object storage seems like an obvious choice. Object storage is very cost effective and has features designed for long-term retention. Instead of a single-tier data center, organizations should look to create a two-tier enterprise, and in this webinar we will show you how.
It’s time to stop the madness! Join Storage Switzerland, Cloudian and Rubrik as we explain the three causes of data protection sprawl and more importantly – how to stop it.
Learn how to solve the 3 data protection sprawl challenges:
- Reduce the number of components in the process
- Manage storage data growth without impacting user experience
- Recover rapidly from any failure of any type
DRaaS is entering its second phase. No longer is it good enough to simply be able to recover applications in the cloud. Next generation DRaaS has to be able to backup faster, recover faster, include ransomware protection and be able to offer on-premises DRaaS, all while being very secure.
In this live webinar we will introduce you to “DRaaS - The Next Generation,” and show you the key elements a DRaaS solution must deliver in order to meet this challenge.
Join Storage Switzerland and HubStor for our live webinar, “Cloud Archiving - Amazon Glacier, Microsoft Azure or Something Else?” In this webinar you will learn the requirements of archiving in the cloud, how Amazon and Microsoft meet those requirements and what software needs to be added to complete the picture.
NVMe and NVMe over fabrics promises to change the flash and networking industry. NVMe enables storage systems to tap into the full potential of flash storage and NVMe allows those systems to deliver in-server latencies. NVMe will fundamentally change storage. Are you ready? Join Storage Switzerland and Tegile for this webinar as they provide you with a path to NVMe.
The data protection process sometimes has objectives that seem to be in opposition to one another. On one side, the organization needs rapid and frequent data captures so that RPOs and RTOs are met. On the other side, there is a need for cost effective long term retention so that the organization is protected from ransomware. Finding the right balance between these extremes is called hitting the data protection sweet spot. In this live webinar, experts from Storage Switzerland and Carbonite will help you get there.
File systems are the heart of most organizations. They’re how critical unstructured data assets are stored, organized, and shared. But with files exploding in size and quantity as well as the cloud offering potentially cheaper and more scalable storage than traditional NAS, a new set of requirements is needed. Is your file system ready? Find out in this live webinar.
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solutions have vaulted to the top of the considerations list for organizations looking to improve their ability to recover from major disasters like hurricanes and floods. But DRaaS solutions are not just for recovery anymore. These solutions can help organizations protect from ransomware, modernize infrastructure, and recover from minor disasters as well. Of course the solution must also provide peace of mind that when disaster strikes, the plan will not only work -- it will also be easy to initiate.
First it was Ransomware. Now it’s two epic Hurricanes. What’s Next? Listen to our Podcast as Infrascale’s Director of Marketing, Carla Fedrigo joins Storage Switzerland’s Founder and Lead Analyst George Crump on a new podcast, “The State of Data Center Threats.” The two will discuss the types of disasters IT professionals face and how to prepare for them, and why disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) maybe the ideal solution to the problems. After listening, sign up for our webinar, “DRaaS, It’s Not Just for Disasters Anymore.”
George Crump & Curtis Preston, Storage Switzerland, Christopher Brown & Scott Killian, Uptime Institute
In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey that swept Southern Texas last week, colocation facilities and companies with data centers in the region (and elsewhere) are faced with the stark reality that a strong data center and disaster recovery plan is vital.
Every disaster recovery plan has two major parts. One is preparation, the other is recovery. Join Storage Switzerland’s Senior Analyst W. Curtis Preston (a.k.a. Mr. Backup) along with Uptime Institute’s CTO Christopher Brown and VP of Efficient IT Programs Scott Killian for a live round table discussion moderated by Storage Switzerland Founder George Crump, as we help you design a recovery strategy for a Hurricane Harvey-sized disaster.
In this session you will learn:
1. How you should be preparing for a return while at the disaster site
2. What are the first three steps to take when your primary data center is ready
3. How you should de-stage your DR site when your primary is operational
Join us live on Wednesday September 6th at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET
More data outside of the data center is staying on endpoints and in the cloud than ever before. That means the risks to that data are also at an all time high. Plus regulations encompassing end-user data are also increasing, challenging IT to manage data when they have less control than ever. IT needs more than an endpoint protection plan, it needs an end-user data strategy.
In this webinar, learn how to evolve from an endpoint data protection plan to a comprehensive end-user data strategy.
NVMe is an industry standard protocol designed specifically for memory-based storage like flash drives. It unleashes flash arrays from the chains of SCSI that hold it back. Register for our live webinar and learn what NVMe and NVMe over Fabrics are, what the advantage of NVMe is over traditional SCSI protocols and how to go beyond the NVMe basics to fully tap into the potential of memory-based storage.
In our live webinar, Storage Switzerland and Maxta will compare the pros and cons of the two hyperconverged deployment models. Those attending learn how to clarify their goals for hyperconvergence and how to decide which architecture is the best fit for their organizations.
Attendees will learn how each deployment model overcomes these challenge:
1. Ease of initial evaluation and testing
2. How to transition to hyperconvergence while having current servers
3. How to avoid hypervisor lock-in
4. How to build a future proof hyperconverged architecture
