  • Five Reasons Modern Data Centers Need Tape Sep 26 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Spectra Logic, Fujifilm, Iron Mountain
    To some, tape storage may seem like an outdated technology in the era of NAS and object-based storage. But— here’s a surprise – tape today is more relevant than ever. Even the most modern data centers can benefit from its low cost of ownership, scalability, reliability and security. In our next live webinar, Storage Switzerland is joined by Spectra Logic, Fujifilm and Iron Mountain to discuss why tape use shouldn’t just continue but actually expand, including in hybrid cloud environments.

    Many IT professionals are familiar with tape and have leveraged the numerous advantages the technology has to offer. But for those less familiar or new to tape the webinar will start with:
    • Tape Media and Tape Library Basics
    o How does tape work?
    o How is it different than other storage technologies?

    Our panel of experts will then discuss five use cases where tape media is ideally suited for:
    • Active Backup
    • Active Archive
    • Analytics

  • 20 Minute Introduction Composing Infrastructure for Elastic, Hadoop, Kafka Aug 29 2019 5:00 pm UTC 22 mins
    Storage Switzerland and DriveScale
    Composing Infrastructure for Elastic, Hadoop, Kafka and Cassandra to Drive Down Cloud Data Center Costs

    Hyperscale applications like Elastic, Hadoop, Kafka and Cassandra typically use a shared nothing design where each node in the compute cluster operates on its data. Hyperscale architectures, to maximize storage IO performance, keep data local to the compute node processing the job. The problem is that the organization loses the efficiency of shared storage infrastructure. As the hyperscale architecture scales, overprovisioned and underutilized compute, GPU and storage resources cost the organization money!

    Join Storage Switzerland and DriveScale for our 20 minute webinar to learn how composable infrastructure can provide both high performance and high efficiency.

    In 20 minutes learn:
    - The challenges facing hyperscale architectures
    - The true cost of underutilized compute and storage
    - Why fast Ethernet networks are good for your data
    - How a composable architecture brings scale, performance and cost efficiency to your data center

  • Panel Discussion: Is Computational Storage a Better Path to Extreme Performance? Recorded: Jul 25 2019 33 mins
    Storage Switzerland, NGD Systems, ScaleFlux, Samsung
    Vendors are re-writing software and adding custom hardware in an attempt to not bottleneck extremely low latency NVMe Flash and Storage Class Memory technologies. Eventually, they all are at the mercy of physics. Data has to traverse an internal and sometimes and external network so the computing tier can process it. Computational Storage offers an alternative by performing at least some of the processing on the storage device itself, eliminating most of the network activity.

    Join Storage Switzerland's Lead Analyst, George Crump as he leads a panel of computational storage experts to include NGD System's Scott Shadley, ScaleFlux's Thad Omura, and Samsung's Pankaj Mehra as preview the Computational Storage Workshop at the Flash Memory Summit on Thursday, August 8th.

  • Ransomware, Rapid Restoration and Disasters - Recovering from Backup’s Big Three Recorded: Jun 27 2019 54 mins
    Storage Switzerland, StorageCraft
    Organizations need to make sure their backup infrastructure can meet the recovery objectives of today’s biggest challenges: ransomware, rapid restoration and disasters. Businesses expect their IT teams to recover faster than ever and they need business performance to be the same during the recovery effort as it is during normal production. Meeting these new challenges and expectations requires IT to rethink the backup process.

    Ransomware requires rapid, frequent backups of all types of data and that the backup software also protects itself. Rapid recovery is more than just instantiating a VM from backup storage. It requires understanding the impact on performance, as well as planning a path for migration back to production storage. Finally, there is the never-ending threat of site-wide disasters. Thanks to cyber-attacks, geographically safe areas don’t exist. All data centers must prepare for a site failure and for a rapid disaster recovery without impacting application performance.

    In our live webinar Storage Switzerland and StorageCraft will discuss why these are the top challenges facing the data protection architecture, why current data protection infrastructure won’t meet these challenges, and how to overcome them.
  • The Top Four Challenges of Data Analytics and How to Solve Them Recorded: Jun 26 2019 63 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Promethium
    Data analytics and business intelligence (BI) initiatives have become mission-critical, but today, it is simply taking too long to arrive at insights. 90% of the time that it takes to generate insights lies in human labor, and that labor is significantly tied to data preparation. Join subject matter experts from Storage Switzerland and Promethium for an in-depth look at what’s wrong with data analytics today, and how a self-service data analytics and governance strategy can empower organizations to avoid spending months searching for, collecting and preparing data.
  • MeetTheCEO: Cloud Daddy’s Spencer Kupferman Recorded: Jun 25 2019 30 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Cloud Daddy
    As businesses migrate more of their data and applications to the cloud, a more comprehensive and mature disaster recovery implementation is required. Cloud service providers have built a base layer of data protection capabilities that focus primarily on enabling recovery from hardware failure, but the reality is that most recovery requests today stem from a cyberattack or from human error. As a result, cloud services need some help in the form of intelligent and granular search and tagging, as well as management capabilities such as the ability to schedule snapshots and apply retention policies.

    Cloud Daddy’s CEO, Spencer Kupferman, will join Storage Switzerland for a live webinar discussion regarding how the trifecta of increasing and more sophisticated malware attacks, regulatory oversight of data, and the shift to cloud are changing the face of the disaster recovery market. Register now to be sure you hear his perspective on why capabilities like simplified and centralized oversight of backup and replication jobs and cross-region backup and restore matter in today’s data protection paradigm.
  • MeetTheCEO: HotLink’s Lynn LeBlanc Recorded: Jun 20 2019 27 mins
    Storage Switzerland, HotLink
    Backups cannot be assumed to be safe today, against an emergence of more sophisticated malware. These new variants were designed to be discrete, often sitting idle and being copied across the backup repository to then attack slowly – all with the ultimate goal of attacking as many systems as possible while at the same time avoiding detection for as long as possible. To avoid restoring trigger files, IT must be able to proactively verify and monitor the quality and viability of backups. The problem is that legacy verification methods cannot keep up with the growing volume of backup data that must be verified or the frequency with which verification must occur.

    Lynn LeBlanc, CEO of HotLink, will join Storage Switzerland to share her perspective on how IT professionals may restructure their approach to backup verification so that all recovery points may be vetted, and malware attacks contained. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear her perspective on the new pain points related to backup verification that are emerging with modern ransomware, and how IT professionals may apply analytics and artificial intelligence for more efficient and thorough verification.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn more about why getting to the right data is so laborious, how it is not only slowing but also jeopardizing the quality of your business intelligence initiatives, and why stringing together multiple data querying tools is not an effective answer.
  • MeetTheCEO: Actifio’s Ash Ashutosh Recorded: Jun 12 2019 23 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Actifio
    Enterprises are dealing with a constant tide of copy data sprawl. More copies are being created to serve secondary business processes like analytics, test and development, and frequently with limited oversight or governance from IT. Meanwhile, regulations like the European Union’s (EU’s) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) require more data to be stored for longer periods of time. Copy data management (CDM) solutions can help to contain this sprawl, but they must be agile in order to effectively support business operations. Also, in order to truly minimize infrastructure-related costs, they should have the flexibility to be procured through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model.

    Ash Ashutosh, CEO of CDM pioneer Actifio, will join Storage Switzerland to share his perspective on how customer pain points related to managing copy data sprawl are evolving, and how his company is pivoting in-line with those requirements. Be sure to join and hear his thoughts on changing business models, and how CDM can not only support more efficient and effective business collaboration, but also to protect against the threat of ransomware and supporting compliance requirements.
