The Four Advantages of Hybrid Flash Arrays

Storage Switzerland’s Chief Steward George Crump and GridIron System’s Prasad Pammidimukkala, VP of Product Management
It’s time to upgrade one or all of your storage systems, but what should you do? One alternative is to stay with the ‘tried and true’ solution of hard-drive based storage arrays, another is to leverage solid state disk (SSD) somehow in order to meet growing performance challenges. If SSD is for you which implementation style should you choose?

Hybrid Flash Arrays have emerged as a viable strategy to introduce flash technology into the data center and remove performance bottlenecks. They can deliver on the promise of flash technology without incurring the costs sometimes associated with all-flash arrays or the performance disappointment of legacy systems that try to add flash to old, hard-disk array technology.  

Register now for a 45 minute live webcast with Storage Switzerland’s Chief Steward George Crump and GridIron System’s Prasad Pammidimukkala, VP of Product Management and Business Development to learn the four advantages of hybrid flash arrays. This discussion will cover the different flash array implementation options and the pros and cons of each.

  • Malware today is very different from just a few years ago. Traditional AV technology is no longer able to consistently and fully remediate or defend against today’s most advanced threats. New and emerging threats such as ransomware, social engineering driven attacks and micro variant financial threats are just some examples of difficult to remediate infections. This presentation will take a look at the malware landscape and explain why these tactics are so effective against traditional AV technology. We will examine three specific families of infections and highlight their tactics to evade detection and what issues occur with remediation. Lastly, we will talk about Webroot’s innovation and how our SecureAnywhere AV solution is capable of defending against, and remediating today’s most advanced threats.

  • 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.
