Performance vs. Cost - Solving The HPC Storage Tug-of-War
The HPC storage performance tier is well defined: scale-out solid state storage systems. But the capacity tier is up for debate. Should you use a high end NAS file system or make the switch to object storage? More importantly: How do you move data from the performance tier to the capacity tier without placing additional burden on already overworked IT personnel?
We will answer these questions and provide designs that solve the HPC storage-tug-of-war in our webinar with Caringo. Join us as experts on HPC, NAS and Object Storage discuss the HPC storage challenge, debate the potential solutions and provide you guidance on how to create the right architecture.

All-Flash Arrays (AFA) vendors position their products as the data center cure-all, and the systems address many organizations' performance issues. The challenge is that the performance of AFAs comes at a cost, and in time like these, where IT needs to reduce storage spend, Hybrid Storage may be a better solution for the organization. These systems mix flash and hard disk drives to provide similar performance at a much lower cost. The risk with hybrid storage systems is will their potential for inconsistent performance impacts production applications.
In this webinar, George Crump, StorONE CMO, and former storage analyst, will review each solution's pros and cons and provide clear examples of when each platform makes the most sense for your organization.
* When to use All-Flash vs. Hybrid
* Why deduplication doesn't solve the HDD price advantage
* How to design Hybrid Storage to solve more use cases
StorONE's mission is to help IT professionals be Storage Heroes by driving down storage costs, improving data protection, and increasing performance.

What if you could do more than consolidate storage? What if you could also consolidate backup and disaster recovery into a single solution? It would enable you to lower costs while achieving better results. Designing a primary storage solution that consolidates all these processes is no small task, but we've done precisely that in StorONE's NEW Q3-2020 release.
In this webinar, you'll learn the five levels of protection that a primary storage system needs to provide for you to have confidence in eliminating the backup and disaster recovery processes. For the first time, we will also introduce some of the newest features in our Q3-2020 release that raise the bar on primary storage data protection.
Register now to learn about the File Levels of Primary Storage Protection:
1. Protection from a storage controller failure
2. Protection from data corruption
3. Protection from media, drive shelf and even rack failures
4. Protection from ransomware attacks
5. Protection from local and regional disasters
All registrants get a copy of our white paper "Reducing Backup Costs with Better Primary Storage" soon after registering.
Learn how to use a New Breed of Hybrid Storage to drive down VMware storage costs, simplify operations, and deliver performance better than traditional All-Flash Array’s!
The storage infrastructure supporting most VMware environments is Hybrid, not All-Flash Arrays (AFA). VMware's workloads are too mixed and often require high capacity storage as often as they need high-performance storage. The problem is that AFA vendors' accusations against traditional hybrid systems are right; most hybrid solutions don't provide predictable performance, especially VMware environments, because of its "IO Blender" effect.
Customers continue to use traditional hybrid storage because it is the only system they can afford. However, the result is that they have to maintain low virtual machine densities and often count on risky caching schemes to deliver even an adequate level of performance.
In this webinar, join storage experts from Intel and StorONE as they discuss:
- How to overcome the Hybrid Storage roadblock
- how to design a better, new breed, of hybrid storage system that delivers affordable storage capacity while providing the highly predictable performance customers need
- How to increase your VM density, lower overall storage costs, and improve day-to-day VMware operations
Every three to four years, IT faces the challenge of refreshing storage. Larger organizations with multiple storage systems are in a perpetual state of migration. The need for more performance, higher capacity, or new capabilities usually triggers a storage refresh. Most frustrating is the need to replace a storage system coming off of maintenance because it becomes more expensive to maintain the contract than to buy a new system.
In this webinar we discuss what to look for in your NEXT storage system so that it will be your LAST storage system.
Attend to learn the essential requirements to end storage refreshes:
* Complete Platform and Protocol Support
* Deliver Low $ Per GB and Low $ per IOPS
* Storage Software (not hardware) that Quarterly, Redefines State of the Art
* Efficient Use of Storage Hardware Resources
* Data in Place Storage Controller and Media Upgrades
* Zero Up Charge for Out-Year Maintenance
Database environments like Oracle, MS-SQL, MySQL push All-Flash Arrays to their limits. To compensate, database teams deploy multiple servers and increase server-side RAM. Database environments, which don't benefit from deduplication, continue to consume a lot of excess capacity, which is expensive on premium-priced flash systems. Join us for this webinar where we discuss what is next in database storage.
Key Takeaways: Learn Why Next-Generation Database Storage Needs to deliver in Four Key Areas:
1. Improve Data Integrity - The information in databases is an organization's Crown Jewels. Next generations storage systems must increase data integrity and protect that data from hardware failure or human mistakes.
2. Improve Performance - Instead of forcing customers to deploy expensive workarounds, storage systems need to deliver the full performance of solid-state media and modern networking.
3. Reduce Capacity - Databases, generally, don't benefit from deduplication. Plus, deduplication adds overhead that increases latency and lowers performance. Instead, next-generation systems need built-in copy data management to feed QA, test-dev, and reporting.
4. Reduce Costs (everywhere) - Storage costs too much, and database storage is the most expensive. Next-generation storage needs to cost less than current storage systems while enabling IT to lower investment in the number of database servers and the RAM installed in them.

Most data centers have six or more storage systems from three or more vendors. Storage infrastructure is an unsupportable mess. The concept of storage consolidation seems like an unreachable dream.
Join StorONE and Intel for our on demand webinar. During the webinar we discuss what causes storage consolidation to unravel, and how the right solution can make storage consolidation an affordable, long-lasting reality.
Register Now and receive our white paper "Tactically Consolidate Storage - You Don't Have Time For Strategy".
Storage consolidation is something every data center wants. Consolidated storage infrastructure is easier to manage, and, over time, lowers acquisition costs. The problem is the upfront costs of a storage consolidation solution is hard to justify, and the solutions seldom stay consolidated. Eventually, workloads appear that the original consolidation solution can't support, and storage fragmentation begins all over again.
StorONE's All-Flash Array.next, promises permanent consolidation that can start small, solving a specific problem upfront but then grow to address all the data center's workloads.
In our event we discuss the five requirements of making storage consolidation a reality:
* Affordable Upfront
* Wide Performance Window
* Universal Protocol Support
* Storage Media Flexibility
* Future Ready
As we continue to work through the devastating impact, both personally and on businesses of COVID-19, organizations realize that IT operations need to change to support the new normal. One area that needs special attention is Storage Operations. The storage infrastructure needs to be more flexible, more resilient, better protected, and less expensive.
In this webinar Gal Naor, CEO of StorONE and George Crump, CMO, discuss the five steps IT professionals need to take to meet the demands of the new normal that pandemics like COVID-19 cause. During the webinar, Gal and George will share the results of our survey, "How has COVID-19 Impacted Your Data Center." Listen in to learn how your peers are coping with our present situation.

Data sprawl, data gravity, and security concerns are impeding multicloud deployments.
Join us as we sit down with StorONE's cloud partner, Madison Cloud, to discuss the multicloud data problem. The Madison Cloud/StorONE solution is a centralized, secure, and simple way to manage your cloud storage while allowing you to continue running cloud compute workloads in the cloud of your choice (e.g., AWS, Azure, GCP, etc.). It solves the multicloud data problem.
The average organization uses over 5 different clouds and is experimenting with several more. Managing data in this growing multicloud environment becomes incredibly complex and introduces an array of management and security issues. Data sprawl combined with the difficulty of moving data between clouds, also known as data gravity, prevents organizations from realizing the full flexible benefits of cloud.
Instead of having isolated data silos within multiple clouds, each with its unique features, limitations, and management consoles, Private MultiCloud Storage by Madison Cloud presents the full, flexible feature-set of StorONE to multiple clouds simultaneously. You can now manage your entire cloud data footprint (file, block, and object) in a private storage cloud under a single management console.

Learn how better primary storage can reduce backup infrastructure costs. There are five key features that primary storage solutions must have to protect themselves and reduce an organization's dependency on backup software and hardware. Achieving that goal means the organization can realize immediate cost savings by reducing the number of data protection solutions they use.
Many storage systems have minimal capabilities, like snapshots and replication, which can’t reduce backup infrastructure investments. Replacing backup requires a primary storage solution with complete and robust data protection. Any gaps in protection leave the organization exposed to the risk of data loss.
Join us for our on-demand webinar with StorONE's Chief Marketing Officer, George Crump, and Technical Account Manager, Scott Armbrust. During the event you'll learn what capabilities primary storage must have so you can reduce the cost and importance of your backup infrastructure. We also provide a live demonstration of those capabilities during the session.
