  • Unprotected Files on a Public Cloud Server: Live Panel on the NSA Data Leak Recorded: Dec 8 2017 59 mins
    Chris Vickery, George Crump, David Linthicum, Charles Goldberg, Mark Carlson
    Public, private and hybrid cloud are nothing new, but protecting sensitive data stored on these servers is still of the utmost concern. The NSA is no exception.

    It recently became publicized that the contents of a highly sensitive hard drive belonging to the NSA (National Security Agency) were compromised. The virtual disk containing the sensitive data came from an Army Intelligence project and was left on a public AWS (Amazon Web Services) storage server, not password-protected.

    This is one of at least 5 other leaks of NSA-related data in recent years. Not to mention the significant number of breaches and hacks we’ve experienced lately, including Yahoo!, Equifax, WannaCry, Petya, and more.

    The culprit in this case? Unprotected storage buckets. They have played a part in multiple other recent exposures, and concern is on the rise. When it comes to storing data on public cloud servers like AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Rackspace and more, what are the key responsibilities of Storage Architects and Engineers, CIOs and CTOs to avoid these types data leaks?

    Tune in with Chris Vickery, Director of Cyber Risk Research at UpGuard and the one who discovered the leak, along with George Crump, Chief Steward, Storage Switzerland, David Linthicum, Cloud Computing Visionary, Author & Speaker, Charles Goldberg, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, Thales e-Security, and Mark Carlson, Co-Chair, SNIA Technical Council & Cloud Storage Initiative, for a live panel discussion on this ever-important topics.
  • All-Flash in 2018 - What You Need to Know Recorded: Dec 7 2017 57 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Tegile Systems
    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.
  • Veteran vs. Rookie - Who is Best Able to Meet The Enterprise Backup Challenge? Recorded: Dec 7 2017 61 mins

    4. Rapid recovery expectations
    5. Lack of recovery confidence
  • Three Steps to Eliminating Storage Silos Recorded: Nov 16 2017 51 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Nexsan
    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.
  • Amazon RE:Invent for Storage Professionals - Three Capabilities to Look For Recorded: Nov 15 2017 64 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Avere Systems, SwiftStack
    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.

  • How to Create A Two Tier Enterprise With All-Flash and Object Storage Recorded: Nov 9 2017 54 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Tegile Systems
    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.

  • Hitting Your Data Protection Sweet Spot Recorded: Sep 26 2017 58 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Carbonite
    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.
  • The Four Requirements of a Cloud-Era File System Recorded: Sep 21 2017 63 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Nasuni
    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.
  • DRaaS - It’s Not Just For Disasters Anymore Recorded: Sep 12 2017 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Infrascale
    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.

  • From Disaster to Recovery: What Hurricane Harvey Means for your Data Center Recorded: Sep 6 2017 60 mins
    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
  • Endpoint Backup is not Enough - You Need an End-user Data Strategy Recorded: Aug 24 2017 58 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Druva
    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.
