Users expectations of IT's ability to return mission critical applications to production are higher than ever. These expectations are leading IT to abandon many of their backup and recovery solutions to try new, unproven solutions that may or may not solve the problem. In either case, the organization wasted its investment in the first solution for the unknown potential of a new solution. User expectations are certain to get higher, so this cycle will likely repeat itself. IT needs a new strategy, one that will meet the current expectations of users and pave the way for true organizational resilience.
End-to-end encryption is important and offers a base level of security but if the EFSS vendor owns your keys then you may not have the protection you might think. In this StorageShort, Storage Switzerland and Ctera discuss the importance of key ownership as part of the encryption process.
4 steps for more affordable, effective disaster recovery. Disaster Recovery is an expensive proposition. But since the consequences of not being prepared for a disaster are so severe, it is an expense that organizations make. But that's not to say organizations are not always looking for way to do DR better, faster and for less money. In this live webinar join Storage Switzerland and ClearSky to learn how organizations can lower the cost of DR preparation and execution.
The first step to the cloud, for most organizations, is backup. This use case leverages cloud storage but totally ignores something that cloud providers are better at delivering – cloud compute. Join Storage Switzerland and Zerto as we discuss the best next step for hybrid cloud. Leveraging the cloud to create a next generation disaster recovery site.
Have you made the jump to all-flash storage? Are you planning to? If so this webinar is for you. We will look at what's next after (or before) the jump to all-flash. An all-flash array brings many benefits to the environment, but it also either exposes weaknesses or raises expectations in IT's ability to consistently deliver performance to applications, to protect the data those applications create and to ensure the organization can rapidly recover from almost any disaster.
When most organizations consider an archiving project their primary goal is to save money. Basically they are looking to move data off of expensive storage valued at a couple dollars per GB to secondary storage valued at pennies a GB. They are counting on the 80/20 rule to save them money, where 80 percent of what an organization stores has not been accessed in the last nine months. Moving that 80% to less expensive storage will save them money. What most organizations that successfully implement a data management strategy actually find that the per GB cost savings is the most trivial part of the equation. In this ChalkTalk video, Storage Switzerland and NTP Software discuss the other more important reasons to archive data.

Storage Switzerland and Dternity/StrongBox Data Solutions
Organizations managing data have a competitive advantage over organizations that don't. But most organizations don't have the time or tools available to implement a successful data management strategy. It’s not for a lack of trying. Many organizations fight a losing battle when trying to implement a data management solution. In this webinar Storage Switzerland and Dternity/StrongBox Data Solutions will discuss the three reasons why organizations are losing the data management battle, and provide guidance on how to start winning the battle.
The Always-on Enterprise is a data center that faced with even the most severe disaster can return applications to full working order in a matter of minutes. Service level objectives (SLOs) are the means by which IT and the organization communicate how the protection and recovery process will work. The challenge is the status quo SLO won't meet the new "always-on" expectation. You need to protect data more frequently, recover more rapidly and provide better performance in the recovered state.
It is time for IT to re-think SLOs and the solutions to meet them. Join experts from Storage Switzerland, Veeam and NetApp as they review the NEW SLO requirements and how you can meet those requirements while controlling costs.
Today’s IT professional is stuck in the middle of a file sharing tug of war. One side has the end users who want the improved productivity that mobility and collaboration promises.

Listen to this live podcast to determine which is best for your organization.
As IT organizations attempt to modernize, they continue to look for ways to offer more of their capabilities as a service. Good examples of this are software as a service and infrastructure as a service. The problem is one of the missing elements in the service model is the crown jewel of IT: data. Data is the information lifeblood of most organizations and it needs to be delivered as a service.
Storage Switzerland will tackle one of the biggest challenges facing IT professionals today during a special, live podcast. We will explain what vendors mean when they use terms like converged, hyperconverged, hybrid cloud, instant recovery, continuous data protection, the list goes on. Its confusing because many vendors use the same terms to describe different capabilities or technologies. Join to Storage Switzerland and we’ll sort the whole thing out. You, the listener, get to drive the conversation. You'll vote for the terms you want to discuss and we'll talk about them!
For most enterprises, optimizing your Windows fileserver means buying a new, bigger server with more capacity and better network connections. Or it means buying a dedicated Network Attached Storage (NAS) system. Then they feel they need to add new ransomware and data protection software. All of these "solutions" are expensive, involve a costly data migration and don't really increase IT efficiency. In this webinar, experts from Storage Switzerland and Caringo will teach you how data management can eliminate the need for additional Windows file servers, capacity and protection.
