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.

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.

We will also ask him about his goals for Actifio and get his predictions for the future of IT. NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED.
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.
Spectra Logic's Nathan Thompson is our guest on this MeetTheCEO podcast with Storage Swiss’ George Crump and Charlie Hodges.

Join us for this live conversation and get your long term data preservation questions answered by our panel of experts.
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
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.

Join this webinar to be certain of making the right decisions on moving resources to the cloud. You’ll see how to evaluate which workloads are candidates for cloud migration PLUS measure how efficiently you’re utilizing your own resources.
The CloudPhysics Cost Calculator for Private Cloud lets you apply basic costing models to determine your actual costs per virtual machine (VM) in terms of power, compute resources, memory, storage, licensing, and more to generate a cost baseline.
Now you can apply CloudPhysics rightsizing intelligence to your VMs. See your “as is” costs beside your rightsized costs at peak, 99th percentile, and 95th percentile. Capture savings by reducing workloads to match actual demands and reduce overprovisioning.
When mapping your VMs to their public cloud instances, apply the same peak, 99th percentile, and 95th percentile data to reveal cost difference for private versus public cloud.
Attend this webinar to be sure you’ve optimized decision-making before you move.
Load balancers occupy an important position (in the path of application traffic) on the enterprise network. Yet, traditional application delivery controllers (ADCs) are unable to provide meaningful application insights to drive business decisions. Avi Networks’ software-defined architecture for load balancing separates the control plane (management layer) from the data plane (load balancers) to generate continuous insights about applications.
In this 30 minute presentation from Avi Networks, learn how you can get rich analytics and actionable insights into end user experience, application performance, resource utilization, security, and anomalous behavior. See how you can benefit from:
• A “Network DVR” to record and replay traffic events to pinpoint app issues
• At-a-glance view of all virtual services throughout the system
• Real-time visibility into DDoS attacks, SSL versions and ciphers used in transactions
• Health scores that give you immediate feedback on application performance
Join us for the third and final webcast in our series on micro-segmentation, how it protects networks, and how it works with perimeter firewalls. We’ll also discuss its advantages beyond protection in automating security workflows and more.
In this webcast series, we’ve explored the security benefits of micro-segmentation with NSX, notably how it protects data centers inside the perimeter firewall. But did you know that with micro-segmentation, IT can also automate security workflows such as provisioning, moves/adds/changes, threat response, and security policy management? Join us as we discuss:
• How to improve accuracy and gain better overall security in the data center
• Security policy approaches with network virtualization
• How to automate security workflows to gain greater agility
Build a fundamentally more agile, efficient and secure application environment with VMware NSX network virtualization on powerful industry standard infrastructure featuring Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Ethernet 10GB/40GB Converged Network Adapters.

The use of broadband Internet connections in SD-WAN environment has many benefits, however for any enterprise, performance and reliability cannot be compromised. An SD-WAN solution must include all the functionality needed to meet these essential requirements that deliver outstanding performance and Quality of Service by:
•Actually improving the quality of the bandwidth you already have, instead of routing around it
•Enabling centralized control and administration of network-wide policies
•Providing detailed visibility into real-time and historical application and network trends
•Allowing for the modular deployment of WAN optimization to insure performance when you need it, where you need it
This all adds up to an enterprise-grade, performance-centric offering that allows your SD-WAN to rapidly connect users to the applications they need. Deployment times are reduced significantly and enterprises enjoy enhanced performance, visibility and control over the entire network.
