The Challenges With Server-Side SSD Caching in VMware Environments

VMware creates a storage performance challenge for almost any data center that has implemented virtualization. No matter the size of the environment, the fundamental issue is dealing with highly randomized storage I/O. The theoretical quick fix has been to embrace server-side caching, which sounds simple enough; buy the SSD, install caching software, reboot and watch your virtual environment fly. Server-side caching, however, introduces its own set of problems. Three of the biggest issues are how those solutions deal with VM migrations, how they respond to an SSD failure, and how administrators can avoid “cache sprawl”.

In this webinar George Crump, Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland and Peter Smith Director of Product Management at Infinio will discuss server-side caching, its challenges, and how to overcome them.

  • 5 Keys for Next Generation DRaaS Oct 12 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Quorum
    DRaaS is entering its second phase. No longer is it good enough to simply be able to recover applications in the cloud. Next generation DRaaS has to be able to backup faster, recover faster, include ransomware protection and be able to offer on-premises DRaaS, all while being very secure.

    In this live webinar we will introduce you to “DRaaS - The Next Generation,” and show you the key elements a DRaaS solution must deliver in order to meet this challenge.

  • Hitting Your Data Protection Sweet Spot Sep 26 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Carbonite
    The data protection process sometimes has objectives that seem to be in opposition to one another. On one side, the organization needs rapid and frequent data captures so that RPOs and RTOs are met. On the other side, there is a need for cost effective long term retention so that the organization is protected from ransomware. Finding the right balance between these extremes is called hitting the data protection sweet spot. In this live webinar, experts from Storage Switzerland and Carbonite will help you get there.
  • The Four Requirements of a Cloud-Era File System Recorded: Sep 21 2017 63 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Nasuni
    File systems are the heart of most organizations. They’re how critical unstructured data assets are stored, organized, and shared. But with files exploding in size and quantity as well as the cloud offering potentially cheaper and more scalable storage than traditional NAS, a new set of requirements is needed. Is your file system ready? Find out in this live webinar.
  • DRaaS - It’s Not Just For Disasters Anymore Recorded: Sep 12 2017 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Infrascale
    Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solutions have vaulted to the top of the considerations list for organizations looking to improve their ability to recover from major disasters like hurricanes and floods. But DRaaS solutions are not just for recovery anymore. These solutions can help organizations protect from ransomware, modernize infrastructure, and recover from minor disasters as well. Of course the solution must also provide peace of mind that when disaster strikes, the plan will not only work -- it will also be easy to initiate.

  • From Disaster to Recovery: What Hurricane Harvey Means for your Data Center Recorded: Sep 6 2017 60 mins
    George Crump & Curtis Preston, Storage Switzerland, Christopher Brown & Scott Killian, Uptime Institute
    In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey that swept Southern Texas last week, colocation facilities and companies with data centers in the region (and elsewhere) are faced with the stark reality that a strong data center and disaster recovery plan is vital.

    Every disaster recovery plan has two major parts. One is preparation, the other is recovery. Join Storage Switzerland’s Senior Analyst W. Curtis Preston (a.k.a. Mr. Backup) along with Uptime Institute’s CTO Christopher Brown and VP of Efficient IT Programs Scott Killian for a live round table discussion moderated by Storage Switzerland Founder George Crump, as we help you design a recovery strategy for a Hurricane Harvey-sized disaster.

    In this session you will learn:

    1. How you should be preparing for a return while at the disaster site
    2. What are the first three steps to take when your primary data center is ready
    3. How you should de-stage your DR site when your primary is operational

    Join us live on Wednesday September 6th at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET
  • Endpoint Backup is not Enough - You Need an End-user Data Strategy Recorded: Aug 24 2017 58 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Druva
    More data outside of the data center is staying on endpoints and in the cloud than ever before. That means the risks to that data are also at an all time high. Plus regulations encompassing end-user data are also increasing, challenging IT to manage data when they have less control than ever. IT needs more than an endpoint protection plan, it needs an end-user data strategy.

    In this webinar, learn how to evolve from an endpoint data protection plan to a comprehensive end-user data strategy.

  • Where is the All-Flash Data Center? Recorded: Jul 13 2017 52 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Tegile Systems
    Find it With Multi-tiered Flash!
    The all-flash data center was to solve all our problems. We’ve had all-flash arrays for ½ a decade. Where are the all-flash data centers? The problem is that performance and cost have been opposing forces in data storage systems for decades, especially in the initial all-flash era. Recent advancements in flash technology are finally breaking this tension and are enabling a new class of applications while driving costs down dramatically.
  • What's Next in Storage for Managed Service Providers? Recorded: Jun 28 2017 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland, ClearSky
    The cloud has brought both risk and reward to MSPs. In today’s hybrid cloud world, MSPs must deliver consumption-based, private and public cloud offerings to their clients. This includes offering primary storage, offsite backup and DR that is high-performance, scalable and secure. Outsourcing primary storage along with backup and DR enables an MSP’s customers to reduce their on-premises footprint software licenses, connectivity and the problems that come with it. It also sets up the MSP to offer hybrid services like DR as a Service and the new opportunity of copy data management - stop making copies.
