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.

In the digital era, IT has an extraordinary opportunity to become a data-driven business partners helping the business achieve its goals of revenue generation, cost reduction, and risk mitigation. However, IT reporting and analytics have historically focused on descriptive and diagnostic work – describing what happened and why. The speed and agility of the digital revolution demands the ability to not only describe what happened in the past but to predict what might happen in the future and to make recommendations about what should be done.
IT operations analytics offers IT organizations a path to evolve the use of machine, operational and business data for more effective, forward-looking prioritization and decision-making. And in a recent BMC sponsored survey, 79% of IT pros said they would be more effective at their job if they had access to non-IT sources of data to help them make decisions in business context.
Join Donnie Berkholz, 451 Research, and Erin Avery, BMC Software, for a high energy, fast paced discussion on adaptive, real-time analytics that any IT operations organization can adopt to become highly prescriptive and predictive.

Like many organisations, Prudential has to ensure it protects sensitive data. Getting it right results in satisfied customers, regulators and shareholders and avoids the reputational damage and legal penalties associated with a data breach. With the forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation now agreed for implementation, we think now is the right time for organisations to review their data governance and protection requirements. During this webinar we will cover today’s challenges in ensuring good data governance and enter into a panel discussion with Prudential about their approach and lessons learned, including their implementation of Symantec Data Loss Prevention and Boldon James data classification technology. There will also be an opportunity to engage in a Question and Answer session.
So if you want to give your data governance program a head start, register today.
Is your company adopting or using cloud this year, but slowed down by security concerns? Our customers have faced the same hurdles you may be grappling with—operational complexity, concerns over encryption, and increasing developer responsibility among them.
Despite these concerns, cloud discussions for our technology and software customers firms have moved from “if” to “how" because of the much-needed flexibility the cloud provides.
In just 30 minutes in our webcast on Wednesday, April 27th, we'll share the challenges our customers are encountering on hybrid cloud and the shape of the solution that will address these. We'll then demo Bracket's agentless security layer as it performs transparent, always-on encryption that your developers can't turn off—and won't even notice.

The goal of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is to lower the operational costs of supporting an organization’s desktops and laptops. A VDI project should make it easier for IT to support users, keep the organization safe from viruses and better protect its data assets. The key to a successful VDI project is user adoption. But while many organizations consider using an All-Flash Array (AFA) to deliver the performance that will lead to user adoption, the problem is AFAs drive up the cost per desktop, increase the vulnerability of the architecture and encourage additional storage silos.
Join Storage Switzerland and Cloudistics for an informative webinar that will provide an alternative approach that meets user’s performance expectations while leveraging existing – and often already paid for – storage hardware and does not introduce new silos of storage.

In this interactive webinar we will discuss the storage challenges that VMware creates for IT professionals and how flash-based storage systems can not only help solve storage performance challenges, they can also simplify storage management and increase storage efficiency. We will also speak to Fritz Gielow, IT Administrator with the County of Nevada to discuss how flash has solved their VMware storage problems.
The bottleneck in flash storage is often the interface. SAS/SATA interfaces were designed specifically for hard disk drives not for flash media. For example, flash storage can support many more simultaneous I/O operations. The resolution to the problem is to use a different interface, one that is higher throughput and is more directly accessible from the CPU. Leveraging one of these interfaces and extracting optimal performance from the flash media means leaving the confines of the SCSI protocol with customized proprietary drivers. The result is complexity and slow innovation.
