3 Steps To Use The Cloud To Eliminate Storage Administration Headaches
From Storage Management To Storage Value
Today, the data center is moving from virtualization to cloud computing, with an eye toward reducing IT complexity and costs while increasing flexibility and business responsiveness. In reality 60-70% of IT budgets are devoted to maintaining existing infrastructures not on creating business value. IT personnel are stretched too thin to truly respond to the needs of the business and spend most of their time just keeping up. This is particularly true when it comes to the storage infrastructure. Countless hours and millions of dollars are spent on the “must-haves” of provisioning, performance tuning, expansion, backup, archival, disaster recovery, as a necessary cost of doing business.
In this webinar, experts from Storage Switzerland, IBM and TwinStrata will share their insight on steps that IT can take to reduce the amount of time spent on the storage must haves so that they can instead focus on initiatives devoted to business value.

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.
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 see how the CloudPhysics Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer identifies opportunities to lower your costs of running applications on the public cloud.
The Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer automatically identifies on-premises virtual machines (VMs) that are over-provisioned with more resources (such as CPU and memory) than they use. This lets you optimize instance matching to the ideal cloud instances. Rightsizing reveals the verifiable cost of running workloads in the cloud. Now you can answer the question, “will we save money by migrating applications to the cloud?”
This webinar shows how Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer collects resource utilization data from each VM on a fine-grained basis, and then analyzes those data across time to discover the VM’s actual resource needs. Imagine an on-premises VM configured with 8 vCPUs: if the Rightsizer shows that it has never used more than 2 vCPUs, you can Rightsize that VM to a smaller instance in the cloud, saving substantial funds.
If you’re running Hadoop for big data analytics this webinar is for you!
Currently, there are two competing architectures for how to implement Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). The original HDFS approach utilizes storage co-located with the compute servers, but that can often present challenges of wasted compute and/or storage when you scale. An emerging alternative relies on dedicated storage resources shared by the compute cluster, providing a cost-effective and reliable solution.
Join Engineering Fellow and Chief Data Scientist Janet George, as she compares and contrasts these two approaches and provides definitive quantities guidelines to planners and architects to help identify the best solutions for your Big Data and analytic needs.
Between these two methods, we’ll compare and contrast:
-Data Reliability and Bit Loss
-Cost of Capacity
Ransomware is currently one of the most disruptive security challenges for enterprises. As it moves from an individual employee's PC to the corporate network, the impact can be significant. Despite research and analysis by security firms and analysts, most don't have a good idea of how a piece of ransomware actually operates, i.e. what is affected and when, what signals to look for, etc. Exabeam researchers have detonated nearly 100 strains of ransomware in the labs and produced a detailed analysis of how a ransomware attack actually unfolds, and how an organization might respond to shut it down. Join Exabeam and (ISC)2 on July 21, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern and gain a better understanding of the mechanisms of ransomware, how to detect it and shut down an attack.
Many enterprise organizations are moving beyond antivirus software, adding new types of controls and monitoring tools to improve incident prevention, detection, and response on their endpoints. Unfortunately, some of these firms are doing so by adding tactical technologies that offering incremental benefits only.
So what’s needed?
A strategic approach that covers the entire ESG endpoint security continuum from threat prevention to incident response. A truly comprehensive solution will also include advanced endpoint security controls that reduce the attack surface and tight integration with network security, SIEM, and threat intelligence to improve threat detection and response processes.
Join ESG senior principal analyst Jon Oltsik, Intel Security, and Bufferzone on a webinar on July 21 at 10am PT/1pm ET to learn more about next-generation endpoint security requirements and strategies.
