In order to continually improve the ROI of virtualization projects, it is critical to increase the percentage of virtualized workloads and increase the density of virtual servers per host. Storage-related issues such as cost, complexity and performance, continue to be the key obstacles to these goals. Join Storage Switzerland’s lead analyst George Crump and Tintri’s lead architect, Ed Lee as they discuss how storage systems need to become VM Aware to address these challenges.

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.

Virtualization of SQL Server on Hyper-V is nothing new. It maximizes hardware investments, simplifies management and lowers operating costs. The challenge is how to virtualize as many workloads on as few hosts as possible without sacrificing storage performance.
The challenge was accepted by Peter Plamondon, Director of Strategic Ecosystems at SanDisk, to deliver two magical ways you can consolidate Hyper-V with flash storage. Join us to see the outcome of both configurations and how they can:
•Increase by 3x the virtualized workloads your existing host can support
•Give those workloads a 2x performance boost
•Reduce by 65% the total cost to consolidate 21 SQL Server workloads
•Deliver 79x ROI
There are skeptics as to whether magic is real, but we promise you these results are!
The panel will be discussing:

ndexing is king when it comes to achieving highest levels of performance in SQL Server. When indexing is correctly combined with compression (Enterprise only feature), you can gain significant advantages. During this session, we will demo how to query dynamic management views (DMVs) to identify the right objects on which to implement compression, ways to measure performance and identify impact on memory and other resources. We will cover advanced scripts that provide details on fragmentation, memory caching & compression levels. We will also look at how someone who does not have the Enterprise Edition of SQL Server or latest edition of SQL Server can still leverage compression and gain the performance advantage using the right Flash Storage solution

Dealing with a large number of IT vulnerabilities is an issue for most organizations. Only 10 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) account for 97% of the exploits*. Clearly, it is vital for you to identify which of your vulnerabilities are the most critical to address first with fast, effective remediation.
Qualys’ newest solution ThreatPROTECT correlates vulnerability data with a Live Threat Intelligence Feed from multiple industry sources, providing customers with an easy-to-understand dashboard that provides clear insight into which vulnerabilities to fix first.
During this webcast presenters Wolfgang Kandek, and Tim White, will show you how you can use ThreatPROTECT to:
* Quickly identify your most important assets and critical vulnerabilities
* Prioritize remediation efforts so you know which vulnerabilities to tackle first
* Eliminate the guesswork with real-time correlation of active threats
