Server side solid state storage is the storage performance equivalent to a surgical strike. It places storage performance right where the problem is, the server or host having to respond to workload or application demands. Over the last few years PCIe SSD has emerged as the performance solution but the state of server side SSD is changing. Drive form factor SSDs like IBM’s recently announced offering of SMART Storage Systems’ Optimus SSD are out to prove that drive form factor SSDs can provide a superior alternative to PCIe based solutions.
In this webinar Storage Switzerland will explore the state of server side SSD and IBM will detail its SMART Storage Systems’ Optimus SSD announcement.
All pre-registrants will get an advanced copy of Storage Switzerland’s latest report “Buying SSDs: What's More Important $ per GB Stored or $ per TB Written?”

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.

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 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.
Over a decade ago, API-accessible key/value-based storage was introduced as a service by Amazon and as software by Caringo. Amazon’s service-based approach matured quickly, while the general storage market slowly adopted the API approach. The on-premise market demanded a traditional file interface, leading to various “gateway” products. However, for the majority of use cases, the logical file gateway architecture is flawed. Is it time for file to evolve with object? This webinar examines the past decade in file interface gateways and the needs of the market versus what is available.
In this session Pure Storage discusses a case study with Kong Yang, Head Geek of Virtualization & Cloud Practice at SolarWinds on why storage monitoring is essential to maximize performance and maintain application uptime. Topics covered include:
– How monitoring an all-flash array is different than monitoring a traditional storage array
– Best practices to optimize your monitoring solutions/processes to deliver expected performance to applications and meet your end users’ Quality-of-Service (QoS) SLA
– How to do forecast capacity requirements and utilization over time with capacity planning tools
Save your seat to filter through the complexities of data storage, all-flash vs. traditional storage arrays, and how to effectively and efficiently manage your storage devices.
As you begin evaluating hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) options, you may run into conflicting ideas about what it is and what it can do.
In this webcast, we will debunk some common myths around HCI, discuss what’s behind these misconceptions, and clarify how the right HCI solution leads to a simpler and more efficient way to manage your resources.
Don’t let myths distract you from what you should be considering when choosing the right HCI, which includes:
•A proven hypervisor in an integrated HCI stack, with reliability evident in its track record and usage.
•Broad HCI use cases, that include business-critical apps, VDI, managed hosting platforms, micro-services, and more
•Reduced costs through the automation of manual tasks with simple, policy-based management, and a broad choice of competitive hardware platforms.
•Fewer silos by extending existing server and virtualization infrastructures and supporting existing external storage systems
Join us and learn how the modular architecture of HCI serves as the fundamental building block for growing into a private cloud and full SDDC.
Discussing the Storage Performance Development Kit (SPDK) an extension of the Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) into a storage context.
