The Five Lies Told About All Flash Storage Systems

Storage Switzerland’s George Crump and Scott Dietzen, CEO of Pure Storage
Flash only storage systems are quickly establishing themselves as the most power efficient, space efficient and high performance storage option for the data center. Unlike other solutions that put a band-aide over performance problems these designs are like laser surgery removing the performance problem all together. But the doubters remain and the mud has been slung. Join Storage Switzerland’s Lead Analyst, George Crump and Scott Dietzen, CEO of Pure Storage for the no holds barred debunking of the lies being spread about all flash storage:

Lie #1 - All Flash Systems are too expensive
Lie #2 - All Flash Systems are not reliable
Lie #3 - All Flash Systems are not highly available
Lie #4 - All Flash Systems are for the high performance fringe
Lie #5 - All Flash Systems have to compromise performance to achieve affordability

  • Join this webinar and learn why consistency is the hallmark of an effective, agile organisation. With thousands of moving parts, ensuring that every user, every system is being managed consistently is critical. This webinar will show you how a best practice IT systems management software effectively defines, manages, applies and enforces IT policies across groups of machines.

    A state-of-the art Policy Management system streamlines the process of creating, setting and remotely applying IT policies to groups of systems across a distributed organisation. Administrators need to be able to view all policies from a single dashboard, customise them and assign them based on organisation, group, machine type, platform or any dynamic view of machines to ensure all systems are in compliance. By automating management by policies and enforcement, administrators can then take immediate action to remediate any system that is not in compliance.
    Benefits of a modern Policy Management system are:

    • Ensure distributed systems are in compliance with IT policies or recurring services
    • Streamline the process of applying and updating policies to multiple machines based on organisation, group, department or dynamic view
    • Achieve greater confidence that distributed systems are secure and in compliance
    • Manage policy enforcement of multiple groups of machines, applying varying and nested policies depending on security risk, business use or service level
    • New machines can automatically inherit policy settings without any intervention

  • Storage Requirements for the Next Generation Data Center May 1 2014 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The Next Generation Data Center is HERE. These data centers are highly virtualized environments with extremely high virtual machine densities. They thrive on flexibility and cost efficiency. While most of these data centers are in the hands of cloud service providers (CSPs), more traditional enterprises see the benefits of the next generation data center and are adopting much of the CSP mentality. Because of their levels of VM density, these data centers change the storage I/O dynamic and essentially make the traditional storage array obsolete.

    In our upcoming webinar "The Storage Requirements for the Next Generation Data Center" join experts from Storage Switzerland and SolidFire to learn:
    1. What is the Next Generation Data Center?
    2. Why are Next Generation Data Centers ‘The End Game’ of IT?
    3. How Do Next Generation Data Centers Break Storage?
    4. How Does Storage Need to Change to Keep Up?

  • New Use Cases For Server Side Flash Apr 30 2014 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    - Cache is not just for virtualization anymore (actually it never was)

    Server and Desktop virtualization capture a lot of attention from storage vendors these days, especially Flash or SSD vendors. Server-side flash solutions have vaulted into the market lead and are the most commonly implemented method to solve virtualization performance issues. While the value of using server-side flash is undeniable, the fact remains that most data centers have large numbers of bare metal servers that also require high performance.

    Join us for our live webinar in which experts from Storage Switzerland and SanDisk discuss how to analyze these bare metal systems to determine if they can benefit from a flash based performance boost and which of the many flash options available are best for them (Shared Flash, Server Side Flash or Server Side Caching).

  • Ready For Software Defined WAN Acceleration For Virtual Environments? Recorded: Jan 14 2014 61 mins
    WAN Acceleration technologies have typically been deployed as appliances, however, the realities of virtualized infrastructure is demanding a more flexible approach to align with the needs of the software defined data center. WAN acceleration and optimization is more critical than ever given the elevated disaster recovery point and recovery time objectives (RPO/RTO) of the “always on”, hybrid cloud data center environment.

    To meet these demands, as well as the new requirements of the software defined data center, requires deploying WAN acceleration technology as a virtual appliance. Software-defined WAN acceleration enables organizations to leverage existing x86 resources while allowing businesses to granularly select those virtual machines most worthy of limited WAN bandwidth resources. This capability ensures that critical business applications will meet RPO and RTO objectives while maintaining application quality of service. Finally, it allows WAN policies to follow the VM instead of being hard set to hosts or network connections.

    Register today to learn how software defined WAN Acceleration can fulfill the promise of a cloud powered data center.
