Improving the State of MS-SQL Backup

Organizations of all sizes are delivering mission critical applications to users and customers that are built on Microsoft SQL. But many of these organizations lack the time, skill sets and tools required to develop a capable data protection strategy. Instead they count on an ad-hoc collection of SQL and Operating System utilities that may leave SQL data exposed and at risk.

Register for Storage Switzerland’s upcoming Webinar “The State of SQL Data Protection” where George Crump, Lead Analyst with Storage Switzerland will cover the state of SQL backup and disaster recovery (DR) and how it can go wrong. He will provide recommendations on how to simplify the backup process for SQL databases and the benefits of having an on-site backup to provide faster local restores in addition to an off-site DR copy for protection in case of a more extensive failure.

Chris Schin from Zetta will also be on hand to discuss the functionality of Zetta’s DataProtect version 4.0. With their SQL plug-in that uses native SQL backup techniques, this software solution can simplify the process of protecting SQL Server databases and provide a fast recovery solution for multiple SQL databases, efficiently at a price even smaller companies can afford.

  • Enterprise Cloud Migration - 4 Problems to Solve Apr 12 2018 4:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Sureline Systems
    The biggest challenge any enterprise has to get over when migrating workloads to the cloud is SCALE! Large organizations have massive amounts of data; thousands of virtual machines and hundreds of terabytes of data. With this level of scale, migration to the cloud is much more than just copying data from a source site to a destination cloud.

    There are four challenges to be considered while performing large scale migrations that the enterprises need to overcome to establish a truly viable cloud strategy.
  • How Software-Defined Networking Can Simplify Scale-Out HCI Apr 4 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Big Switch Networks
    Hyperconverged Infrastructures (HCI) offer management simplicity and provisioning agility to data centers undergoing digital transformation. When applications need more compute or storage resources, IT can "simply add a node” to an existing HCI cluster. But as the HCI environment scales out, complexity increases and network resources become a significant architectural consideration, often with significant unexpected costs that can blow your HCI budget.
  • NAS Refresh? - 5 Reasons to Consider the Cloud Mar 29 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland, ClearSky Data
    Storage refreshes are something that every data center goes through. However, the most painful are NAS refreshes. It is not just the painful migration of data from the old NAS to the new NAS but also the tedious process of making sure security and access controls are set correctly. Additionally, each refresh gets more difficult, because unstructured data keeps growing. It is time to get off the NAS treadmill and consider the cloud for NAS services.

    Cloud for NAS services is now a reality thanks to new hybrid cloud models. Users can benefit from improved performance thanks to local flash performance and organizations benefit from cost effective cloud storage and breaks the endless storage refresh cycle.
  • The Front Lines of Cyber Risk: 4 Steps to Protecting Endpoints from Ransomware Recorded: Mar 22 2018 54 mins
    Lilac Schoenbeck, Vice President, Portfolio Marketing at Carbonite, George Crump, Founder & Lead Analyst, Storage Switzerland
    When it comes to cyber-risk, the most exposed part of any organization is also the least protected; endpoints. Much of the data on laptops and other devices is unique and not stored on storage owned by the organization, but endpoints are often the first casualties of a cyber-attack. Given the new threat organizations need to provide complete protection, which not only includes protection from device failure but also ransomware attacks, device theft and litigation response.

    The challenge for IT is providing this protection without disrupting the user. If the protection solution gets in the way of the user, they will disable it, putting not only their data at risk but leaving the organization open to data loss and cyber-breach.

    In this live webinar, learn the four requirements of complete endpoint data protection:

    1. Truly Transparent Protection (silent deployment, bandwidth optimization, quick cache)
    2. Deployment Flexibility - On-premises, Public Cloud or Private Cloud
    3. Total Encryption - Protect data in-flight and at rest
    4. Beyond Backup Features - Remote wipe, Legal hold
  • Flash to Flash to Cloud - Three Steps to Ending the Storage Nightmare Recorded: Mar 14 2018 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Tegile Systems
    Three primary storage challenges that keep IT up at night:

    1. How to keep up with application performance demand
    2. How to affordably manage and store the vast amount of data that IT has to store
    3. How to protect that data so that applications can quickly return to service if a server, storage system or entire data center fails

    To meet these challenges IT has either used multiple solutions from multiple vendors, creating cost overruns and massive complexity or they have to try to consolidate to a single vendor via hyperconvergence or cloud migration leading to inefficient use of resources and feature shortfalls.

  • Unprotected Files on a Public Cloud Server: Live Panel on the NSA Data Leak Recorded: Dec 8 2017 59 mins
    Chris Vickery, George Crump, David Linthicum, Charles Goldberg, Mark Carlson
    Public, private and hybrid cloud are nothing new, but protecting sensitive data stored on these servers is still of the utmost concern. The NSA is no exception.

    It recently became publicized that the contents of a highly sensitive hard drive belonging to the NSA (National Security Agency) were compromised. The virtual disk containing the sensitive data came from an Army Intelligence project and was left on a public AWS (Amazon Web Services) storage server, not password-protected.

    This is one of at least 5 other leaks of NSA-related data in recent years. Not to mention the significant number of breaches and hacks we’ve experienced lately, including Yahoo!, Equifax, WannaCry, Petya, and more.

    The culprit in this case? Unprotected storage buckets. They have played a part in multiple other recent exposures, and concern is on the rise. When it comes to storing data on public cloud servers like AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Rackspace and more, what are the key responsibilities of Storage Architects and Engineers, CIOs and CTOs to avoid these types data leaks?

    Tune in with Chris Vickery, Director of Cyber Risk Research at UpGuard and the one who discovered the leak, along with George Crump, Chief Steward, Storage Switzerland, David Linthicum, Cloud Computing Visionary, Author & Speaker, Charles Goldberg, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, Thales e-Security, and Mark Carlson, Co-Chair, SNIA Technical Council & Cloud Storage Initiative, for a live panel discussion on this ever-important topics.

  • Three Steps to Eliminating Storage Silos Recorded: Nov 16 2017 51 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Nexsan
    As an organization grows the number of use cases the data center needs to support increases with it. What starts out as a NAS for file sharing, moves to a SAN for database applications, and then storage for data protection. As the organization hits full stride it might look at arching to limit growth and a mobility solution to support a distributed workforce. The problem is each one of these storage types are silo’ed and have to be implemented, operated and maintained separately. As a result, storage ends up consuming a large chunk of the IT budget.

  • How to Create A Two Tier Enterprise With All-Flash and Object Storage Recorded: Nov 9 2017 54 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Tegile Systems
    The only problem with the all-flash data center is most of the data (as much as 85%) organizations store is not accessed in more than a year. Assuming there is a more cost effective way to store that data it should be stored on something else. Object storage seems like an obvious choice. Object storage is very cost effective and has features designed for long-term retention. Instead of a single-tier data center, organizations should look to create a two-tier enterprise, and in this webinar we will show you how.
