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.

Many studies indicate that organizations have a shallow confidence level in their ability to recover from a disaster. The disaster recovery plan is often an ad-hoc plan that requires IT to scramble when disaster strikes. If the recovery effort succeeds, it is often well behind schedule and well over budget. The first step in creating a great disaster recovery plan is creating one that is at least not bad. In this live webinar join Storage Switzerland, Veeam, and KeepItSafe as we discuss how to go from a bad disaster recovery situation to a great disaster recovery plan.
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. Register and receive an exclusive copy of our 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.
Ransomware is the universal threat. No matter an organization's data center location, or its size, it can be devastated by a ransomware attack. While most organizations focus on the periphery, they also need to be prepared for a breach, something that ransomware is particularly adept. In case of a breach, an advanced backup and disaster recovery solution can ensure safe and timely recovery of data without paying ransom.
In this live webinar join experts from Storage Switzerland and Micro Focus as they discuss the impact of ransomware and the core features of a backup solution that can mitigate the associated risks.
Join experts from Storage Switzerland and Western Digital as we discuss the All-Flash Fix, How to Create a Hybrid Storage Architecture.
In this webinar, you'll learn how to create an architecture that meets the need to deliver high performance, protect the organization from disaster and meet the organization's long-term data retention and privacy needs.
The cloud was supposed to be the answer to IT’s backup dilemma; instead, it in some ways has made the situation worse.
In this live webinar join Storage Switzerland and Microsoft Azure for a roundtable discussion on what’s gone wrong with cloud backup and how to fix it. In this webinar we’ll cover the three problems with cloud backup.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are becoming mainstream initiatives at many organizations. Data is at the heart of AI and ML. Immediate access to large data sets is pivotal to successful ML outcomes. Without data, there is no learning. The goal of AI and ML is to try to simulate human thinking and understanding. AI and ML initiatives cannot however be realized unless the data processing layer has immediate access to, and a constant supply of, data.
IT professionals need a faster, smarter and simpler storage architecture. Organizations drive this need by deploying more diverse and demanding applications and services. Data is the very lifeblood of an increasing number of organizations. The consumers of this data need rapid and consistent access to it. The storage network is the circulatory system that drives that data throughout the organization. Like the human circulatory system, the storage network is the key to the organization realizing the full benefits of the data-driven era.
Join George Crump, Founder and Lead Analyst of Storage Switzerland and Paresh Gupta, Technical Marketing Engineer at Cisco as they discuss the new requirements for storage networking so it can deliver a faster, smarter and more straightforward experience for IT.
Join this webinar with experts from SolarWinds and Storage Switzerland as they discuss how IT can have the best of both worlds: a mixed storage system environment that targets the specific requirements of their various workloads, while also expertly managing that environment using its resources efficiently and optimally.
Disaster Recovery plans have always been hard to create and maintain in part because it is difficult to meet the service levels that those plans promise. With recent trends like GDPR and ransomware threats, it is even more difficult for DR plans to live up to expectations.
Join Storage Switzerland’s Founder and Lead Analyst, George Crump, and Commvault’s Director of Product Management, Deepak Verma and learn:
1. What new trends and threats promise to break your current DR process
2. How to simplify creation and maintenance of your DR plan
3. How to meet the service levels that your DR plan commits you to
Believe it or not, it has been a year since WannaCry crippled organizations around the world, and since that time ransomware attacks have only accelerated. The ransomware "industry" is now a $5 billion market and is projected to grow to over $11 billion by 2019. Backup alone is not enough, ransomware is the new disaster, and it can impact any organization regardless of size or location. Are you ready for what is coming next? Attend our live webinar as experts from Storage Switzerland and Infrascale help you create a Ransomware Preparedness Checklist.
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.
In this webinar, join Storage Switzerland and Panasas to learn:
- Why HPC workloads are on the rise in the enterprise
- Why common enterprise storage can’t keep up with HPC demands
- Why traditional HPC storage is a poor fit for the enterprise
- A three-step process to designing an enterprise-class HPC storage architecture
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.
