Five Ways that Your Backups will Get you Fired - and How to Prevent That

The Backup Process that fails once can get you fired, even if it worked perfectly 100 times before. In this 45-minute webinar you will learn the top five ways that backup can get you fired and how to keep that from happening. Join George Crump, Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland and Larry Lang, CEO of QuorumLabs for this candid discussion on what can go wrong in the backup process and how to prevent it - so you don't end up unemployed.

1) Backup window isn’t met - Yes, backups matter too. There’s been a lot written about how “it’s all about recovery”, and while that’s certainly true, if the backup is incomplete the recovery will be too. You need to focus on both backup and recovery.

2) Data isn’t restored on time - You need to address the hidden steps most backup systems require (and users don’t think about) - recovering data that’s traversing the network and making sure that the data is usable.

3) Servers and applications aren’t restarted on time - More things that users and managers don't think about - re-order servers, rebuilding servers, reloading applications.

4) Backups are done but data is not offsite and usable - Data must be in usable condition with servers ready to attach. A backup that’s not safely stored is as useless as one that’s not done at all. Disasters don't happen when it’s convenient.

5) Lack of adequate testing - This is the assurance part of the data protection process. If the recovery doesn’t work, for any reason, you have a problem. This happens because most backup systems don’t get tested very often - or tested completely enough.

  • What Your Object Storage Vendor Isn't Telling You About NFS Support Recorded: Aug 23 2016 61 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    NFS has been the “go to” file system for large data stores but there is a new offering on the horizon...Object Storage. To help ease the transition, many Object Storage vendors have provided a gateway that allows their systems to look like NFS servers. The problem is that most of these implementations are very limiting and often create more problems than they fix. In this webinar Storage Switzerland and Caringo will discuss why object storage systems are the heir apparent to NFS servers and how to make that transition without the typical roadblocks that NFS gateways create.

  • Flash Myth: Flash is for Everything vs. Flash is for One Thing Recorded: Aug 17 2016 62 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    Different workloads demand different attributes from their storage. These differences lead some to believe flash storage is only good for certain point use cases like accelerating databases. But the performance of flash systems lead others to claim a single flash system can support all workloads. The truth, as usual, is somewhere in the middle. Join Storage Switzerland and IBM for this live interactive webinar where we bust another flash myth and help you select the right flash for the right workload for the right reasons.

  • What Does Your Next NetApp Refresh Look Like? Recorded: Jul 26 2016 62 mins
    George Crump
    Most organizations making an investment in NetApp Filers count on the system to store user data and host virtual machine datastores from an environment like VMware. In addition these organizations want their NetApp systems to do more and be the repository for the next wave of unstructured data; data generated by machines. NetApp systems are busting at the seams, so these organizations are trying to decide what to do next.

    To help you find out what to do next, join Storage Switzerland and Caringo for our live webinar and learn:

    1. What are the modern unstructured data use cases
    2. The challenges NetApp faces in addressing its customers’ issues
    3. Other solutions; can all-flash or object storage solve these challenges
    4. Making the move - how to migrate from NetApp to other systems
    5. How to re-purpose, instead of replacing your NetApp

  • Live Webinar: Overcoming the Storage Challenges Cassandra and Couchbase Create Recorded: Jun 30 2016 53 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    NoSQL databases like Cassandra and Couchbase are quickly becoming key components of the modern IT infrastructure. But this modernization creates new challenges – especially for storage. Storage in the broad sense. In-memory databases perform well when there is enough memory available. However, when data sets get too large and they need to access storage, application performance degrades dramatically. Moreover, even if enough memory is available, persistent client requests can bring the servers to their knees.

    Join Storage Switzerland and Plexistor where you will learn:

    1. What is Cassandra and Couchbase?
    2. Why organizations are adopting them?
    3. What are the storage challenges they create?
    4. How organizations attempt to workaround these challenges.
    5. How to design a solution to these challenges instead of a workaround.
