Open networking offers the ability to break free of vendor lock-in and achieve white box economics. SDN promises automation, reduced OpEx and increased agility. However, the open networking and SDN landscape can be confusing, and migrating away from legacy infrastructure can seem fraught with peril. Is the journey worth it?
Join Storage Switzerland and Pluribus Networks where we will answer the following questions:
• What are the benefits of open networking and SDN in the data center?
• How can I safely migrate to a disaggregated white box architecture when I have incumbent vendors deployed throughout my network?
• How do I deploy SDN in my data center and do I need a full hardware refresh to do it?

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 live webinar. During the webinar we will 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 latest white paper "Tactically Consolidate Storage - You Don't Have Time For Strategy" before the webinar.
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 live event we will 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.

The aftermath of COVID-19 is a new economy with new pressures and expectations. The new standard is less physical contact. Companies that sell enterprise storage solutions can no longer send a team of engineers on-site to install their products. A new requirement for enterprise storage is contactless installation. At StorONE, while we are happy to come on-site, our standard installation process is remote installation. In this webinar, we will remotely install our StorONE S1 Enterprise Platform so you can see how easy of a process it is.
Contactless installation is just one of the new requirements of enterprise storage. During the webinar, we will also discuss the other changes in enterprise storage requirements caused by the new economy:
1. Extreme low-cost storage that provides performance and data integrity
2. A significantly simplified operation that requires fewer administrators
3. Efficient performance - Record-setting performance on yesterday's hardware
Learn how to change your storage infrastructure to be affordable, manageable, and ready for the new economy. All attendees will receive exclusive access to our new eBook, "Designing Storage for the New Economy."
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.
Attendees will also receive a copy of our latest eBook "How to Create Invincible Data Storage"

Storage Resource Management (SRM), given the growth in storage capacity, the increased emphasis on performance, and the number of storage systems IT is implementing, should be the most popular application category within the storage market. The reality is that SRM is far from the most popular; it may be the least popular.
Most organizations have not adopted an SRM solution and often count on siloed vendor tools or worse, Excel spreadsheets. The primary challenges to adoption are that SRM offerings are often more complicated than the stand-alone solutions, don’t provide a complete view of the storage infrastructure, and are incredibly expensive.
In this webinar, George Crump, Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland, and Phil Godwin, President and COO at Clear Technologies, discuss the problems with current SRM solutions and how to solve them.
Unstructured data is the fastest-growing segment of data within most enterprises today. This data set contains the creative output of the organization's employees as well as unique data captured by sensors and machines. Unstructured data is large in terms of capacity and number of files. It is also the prime target of ransomware. Organizations are paying hefty ransoms to regain access to their data.
Protecting unstructured data is challenging. Most organizations can't protect it frequently enough, and are unable to restore the data quickly enough. The problem is most data protection solutions are protecting unstructured data incorrectly. Data protection vendors count on image-based backups to bypass issues associated with high file counts. Image-based backups, however, sacrifice the granularity required to meet regulations like GDPR and detect ransomware. Being able to see inside all those files being saved, in order to either make intelligent decisions about the data or to put it to use in another way, is a critical new requirement for organizations.
Join Storage Switzerland and Aparavi for our live webinar to learn how to improve your ability to protect unstructured data while at the same time gaining insight into it.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) workloads are fundamentally different from any other workload. These workloads deal in data sets measured in dozens of petabytes of capacity, and large percentages of it can go from dormant to active at any moment. The high storage requirement and highly active data set make using all-flash arrays or even large flash caches impractical.
IT planners need to rethink their designs to create infrastructures that are highly parallel and leverage high capacity hard disk drives to strike the right balance of performance and capacity. These infrastructures also need metadata efficiency, since AI and ML workloads are metadata heavy.
Join us to learn:
* Why all organizations need to prepare for AI and ML
* The challenges of AI/ML at scale
* Why current storage infrastructures can’t meet the AI/ML at scale challenge
* Requirements of an At-Scale AI/ML Storage Infrastructure
Beware of Backup Software Claiming to provide Cloud Data Management
Organizations are already multi-cloud. They often have a cloud-like infrastructure on-premises like VMware or Nutanix. They may also have cloud-native applications based on SQL, SAP HANA or PostgreSQL. Even if the organization doesn't have a cloud-native application, they may want to use the cloud for off-site storage or disaster recovery. In any of these uses cases the organization needs a multi-cloud data management strategy and backup software can deliver on many of the requirements. IT planners, however, need to closely examine the sacrifices that these solutions might force them to make. Legacy solutions may require an external and potentially foreign user interface, and so-called cloud-native applications may not provide on-premises protection.
What is your disaster recovery (DR) plan? Most organizations today do not have a formalized process. When disaster strikes, IT scrambles, hoping to pluck victory from the jaws of defeat. A DR plan prioritizes recovery efforts so that personnel can focus on recovering the most critical applications and their dependencies first. DR Plans also enable anyone in IT to guide the organization through the disaster recovery process. Not only does the lack of planning puts the company’s reputation at risk, but Storage Switzerland also finds that organizations without a DR plan often spend significantly more on data protection than those with a formal strategy.
The reality though is most organizations don’t have the time to create a DR plan. Even if they do take the time to develop a plan, they don’t have the time to maintain it and ensure that it is up to date. The good news is the latest advancements in data protection solutions include orchestration and automation, which enables organizations to create, maintain and execute workflows that guide the organization to a successful recovery no matter how severe the disaster.
In Less Than 30 Minutes Learn:
*. The challenges with a “best efforts” DR plan
*. How a DR plan can save Money
*. How orchestration and automation can make DR plan creation and maintenance possible for even the busiest IT teams
