Designing A Cost Effective Solid State Hyperscale Data Center
Data centers that use hyperscale architectures face a unique challenge. They have to respond to an ever widening variety of I/O requests from an ever increasing number of users, while at the same time providing a cost competitive service. A solid state only approach addresses the performance problem and significantly reduces operating cost but threatens cost competitiveness.
In this webinar George Crump, Lead Analyst with Storage Switzerland and Esther Spanjer, Director, SSD Technical Marketing at SMART Storage Systems will discuss why hyperscale data center managers should consider an all-flash design and more importantly how they can afford it.
All pre-registrants to the webinar will receive an advanced copy of Storage Switzerland's latest report "High Performance Storage For Hyperscale Data Centers".

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.

Today, companies are increasingly looking into HCI solutions as server virtualization becomes pervasive, the cost of server-side flash drops, and demand increases for operational efficiency without silos.
Join us to learn about HCI trends and VMware hyper-converged software. We’ll discuss how your environment can benefit, and how you can build a simple, efficient and very cost-effective hyper-converged infrastructure—without starting from scratch.
Enterprises are widely adopting hyperconverged infrastructure to transform the way they deliver IT services. At the same time, with dropping prices and increasing storage density, we’ve reached an inflection point that is transforming decisions around all flash deployments as well. If HCI is the path to the future, shouldn’t your storage decisions reflect that? With emerging technologies such as NVMe and 3D CrossPoint rapidly coming into the market, this session will dig into the new realities for enterprise datacenters and what could possibly be the ideal way to deploy flash.
Join us for this insightful look into object storage for developers with Caringo Product Manager Ryan Meek. Ryan will take a close look at best-of-breed object storage architectures and discuss best practices for product integration through the HTTP REST API and the upcoming Dart SDK module and Search API.
High Availability doesn’t trump Disaster Recovery and there is nothing simple about creating a recovery capability for your business – unless you have a set of data protection and business continuity services that can be applied intelligently to your workload, managed centrally, and tested non-disruptively. The good news is that developing such a capability, which traditionally required the challenge of selecting among multiple point product solutions then struggling to fit them into a coherent disaster prevention and recovery framework, just got a lot easier.
Join us and learn how DataCore’s Software-Defined and Hyper-Converged Storage platform provides the tools you need and a service management methodology you require to build a fully functional recovery strategy at a cost you can afford.
