How to Create a Cost-Efficient Hybrid Cloud

Learn how to integrate your on-premises data with your cloud data with an easy-to-manage, unified storage fabric while minimizing costs. Join experts from Madison Cloud and StorONE to learn more.

Ideally, you should leverage cloud providers as a utility and switch between on-premises and multiple providers seamlessly. The problem is moving data between these locations is difficult. On-Premises storage is different than cloud-hosted storage, and each cloud provider uses a different storage architecture. You can migrate data, but then you have to pay for migration software, handle errors, pay for duplicate storage, and, most importantly, wait for data to transfer. These various silos also complicate already complicated processes like backup and disaster recovery.

The increasing costs and never-ending complexities mean most organizations never fully benefit from the hybrid cloud model. In our webinar you will learn how private multi-cloud storage can:
* Lower on-premises costs TODAY!
* Lower DR costs TODAY!
* Simplify Migration to your first cloud with better performance!
* Provide seamless migration to multiple clouds!
* Dramatically reduce cloud storage costs.

    • How to eliminate storage refreshes, significantly improve data protection, and lower overall storage TCO
  • You Can’t Lower Storage TCO without a Platform May 6 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    StorONE CEO Gal Naor and CMO George Crump
    There are many ways to reduce storage system costs but creating a solution that lowers both the upfront and ongoing operational costs of storage requires breaking from inefficient legacy storage systems. It requires a STORAGE PLATFORM!

    Listen to StorONE CEO Gal Naor and CMO George Crump explain how the only way to permanently lower Storage TCO is for storage vendors to take a holistic approach to the problem. StorONE invested its first eight years re-writing and collapsing the storage stack into a very flexible, streamlined engine of efficiency.

    A holistic approach requires maximizing the utilization and lowering the cost of all the components within every aspect of the storage infrastructure. To tackle this challenge requires rethinking storage software and leaving legacy techniques in the past.

    Pre-register now, and we will send you a complete copy of our latest White Paper, “TRUE Value of Total Resource Utilization,” soon after your register. Then join us live to get answers to all your questions about storage TCO in real-time.

  • Webinar and Demonstration: Storage Snapshots Are Useless, Learn how to fix them Recorded: Apr 9 2021 49 mins
    George Crump and Scott Armbrust with StorONE
    Storage snapshots the most underutilized feature in storage. It is not your fault. They are too limited to be worthwhile. You can't execute them frequently enough or retain them long enough to any real challenges. Why? Because even the most modern storage systems see significant drops in performance when snapshot quantity and age increases.

    StorONE's S1 Enterprise Storage Platform turns snapshots from useless to the most valuable capability in your storage system. What if you could take a snapshot every three minutes and retain it for years? What if you could maintain this type of snapshot strategy and NOT impact performance? S1:Snap delivers these capabilities today!

    George Crump, StorONE's CMO and former Storage Analyst, and Scott Armbrust, StorONE's Technical Marketing Engineer, will explain why StorONE’s S1:Snap technology is superior to any other snapshot on the market. They will also discuss what is possible once you can maintain one million snapshots without impacting performance. Then see our snapshot technology in a live demonstration.

  • 4 Requirements for Using Hard Drives in Primary Storage Recorded: Mar 30 2021 53 mins
    George Crump, CMO at StorONE and Michael Bettenburg, Systems Specialist at Seagate
    Many vendors are trying to convince you that hard disk drives have no primary storage role. Some go so far as to suggest that hard drives don’t even have a role in secondary storage. The reality is that hard drives have a significant contribution to all storage use cases. Combining these cost-effective, high-capacity hard drives with the right amount of flash media and an efficient storage software solution can lower the total storage cost of ownership by a factor of 5X without impacting performance!

    Join StorONE and Seagate for our upcoming live webinar “4 Requirements for Using Hard Drives in Primary Storage.” During this live event, experts from Seagate and StorONE will discuss what your storage infrastructure needs to deliver so you can enjoy the significant cost savings of hard disk drives versus flash:

    ● Intelligent Hybrid Storage
    ● Two Hour RAID Rebuilds from 18TB HDD volumes
    ● 90% of the rated per drive performance from the flash tier
    ● 90% per drive capacity utilization
  • Fixing Storage - Three Foundational Shifts Required to Reduce Storage TCO Recorded: Mar 18 2021 55 mins
    George Crump and Gal Naor with StorONE
    Storage Infrastructures are broken. Storage costs, both CAPEX and OPEX, continue to spiral out of control because storage software is unable to take advantage of modern advances in storage media and storage networking. Additionally, this software can no longer count on being bailed out by more powerful CPUs to help hide its inefficiencies; while cores are increasing, processing power per core is not. The disconnect between efficient use of available CPU resources and hardware innovation forces customers to use workload specific solutions and to only benefit from a small percentage of the potential advances in storage hardware.

    Fixing the storage disconnect requires three foundational shifts so that customers can realize the full potential of hardware innovation which then leads to the reduction of storage TCO. The three foundational shifts are:

    ● A More Efficient Storage Engine
    ● A Flatter IO Stack
    ● Coordinated Data Services
  • 3 Benefits of Reducing RAID Rebuild Times By 10X! Recorded: Jan 28 2021 60 mins
    George Crump, Chief Marketing Officer at StorONE
    RAID rebuild times, the time it takes to bring a volume back to a protected state, is potentially the most critical feature of a modern storage system. The problem is most vendors hide this number from you because their RAID rebuild performance is unacceptable. A slow RAID rebuild does more than put your data at risk; it also wastes precious IT resources by forcing you to allocate additional capacity for protection, and it discourages you from adopting high-density drives.

    In this live webinar, StorONE will show you the results of our newest technology, vRAID 2.0. You will see the fastest RAID rebuild from high-density hard drives and flash drives in the industry during the webinar.

    While the rebuilds are happening, we will explain the advantage of these rapid rebuild times and how StorONE is the only company with the technology to accomplish it.

  • How to Make Hybrid Storage Cool for VMware Recorded: Dec 2 2020 57 mins
    StorONE and Intel
    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
  • Showdown: Scale-up vs. Scale-out Storage, Which is Best for Your Data Center Recorded: Nov 19 2020 44 mins
    George Crump, Chief Marketing Officer - StorONE
    Webinar: Showdown - Scale-up vs. Scale-out Storage

    Storage vendors position scale-out storage to overcome the performance limitations of hard disk drives, underpowered CPUs, and low bandwidth networks. Today though, flash drives and Intel Optane drives are replacing hard disks, extreme performance CPUs are plentiful, and 100GbE networks are becoming commonplace.

    Given modern hardware capabilities, scale-up storage may deliver better performance, more straightforward operation at a lower price than scale-out storage. The key is the storage software must be able to extract the full potential of this hardware efficiently.

    Join us for our webinar "Showdown - Scale-up vs. Scale-out Storage - What's Better for Your Data Center." Join George Crump, former storage industry analyst, and StorONE's Chief Marketing Officer, as he details the pros and cons of the two storage scaling methods to help you determine what is right for your organization both now and in the future.

  • Showdown - All-Flash vs. Hybrid Storage - Which is Best for Your Business? Recorded: Oct 29 2020 27 mins
    George Crump, CMO StorONE
    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.

    Key Takeaways:

    * 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
