    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    Even though users and application owners are demanding it, the Always-On Data Center seems unrealistic to most IT professionals. Overcoming the cost and complexity of an Always-On environment while delivering consistent results is almost too much to ask. But the reality is that data centers of all sizes can affordably meet this expectation. The Always-On environment requires a holistic approach, counting on a highly virtualized infrastructure, flexible data protection software and purpose built protection storage.

    Listen in as experts from Storage Switzerland, Veeam and ExaGrid architect a data availability and protection infrastructure that can meet and even exceed the Always-On expectations of an Always-On organization.

    Key Takeaways:

    1. The Criticality of Virtualization
    2. Availability is more than Backups
    3. Disk Backup needs to be production ready
  • Cleaning up the SDS Mess - Four Keys to Success Recorded: May 13 2015 62 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    Is Software Defined Storage (SDS) getting hijacked? It seems every vendor, old and new, is claiming that their storage is “software defined”. The original intent was to create software-only solutions that could be deployed on the customer’s choice of servers. But that original intent has evolved, and now hardware vendors are providing what they claim to be software defined storage solutions too. In addition, SDS is being combined with an embedded compute function to create hyper-converged solutions as well.

    In this webinar we will discuss the differences in these approaches and you will learn what the four key deliverables of a SDS solution should be so you can decide which makes the most sense for your organization.

    For many organizations MS-SQL is the backend to many of their mission critical applications. The environment provides a cost effective foundation for an organization to develop custom designed solutions that drive the business forward. As MS-SQL has risen in importance, the demands on the storage infrastructure have also increased. MS-SQL needs a high performance, well-protected storage system that is also cost effective. To meet these requirements many organizations are now looking at flash storage.

    Join experts from Storage Switzerland and Tegile Systems as we discuss the various options that storage and MS-SQL administrators have as they begin to look for new ways to meet the MS-SQL challenge.
  • Using the Cloud to Create a Truly All-Flash Data Center Recorded: Apr 28 2015 61 mins
    George Crump, Founder, Storage Switzerland & Ron Bianchini, CEO, Avere Systems
    For years vendors have been trying to drive down the cost of flash so that the all-flash data center can become reality. The problem is that even the rapidly declining price of flash storage can’t keep pace with the rapidly declining price of hard disk. As a result data that does not need to be on flash storage has to be stored on something less expensive. But does that less expensive storage need to be another hard disk array or could it be stored in the cloud?

    In this webinar join Storage Switzerland’s founder George Crump and Avere Systems CEO, Ron Bianchini for an interactive webinar Using the Cloud to Create an All-Flash Data Center.

    In this webinar you will learn:

    1. The Challenges to Building an All-Flash Data Center

  • What’s best for VDI Hybrid or All-Flash Storage Recorded: Mar 12 2015 62 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    The top concern for IT planners looking to implement or expand the use of their VDI investment is storage performance. This is because every step that is taken to drive down cost per desktop, or improve the user experience, impacts storage performance and capacity. All-flash arrays address the performance problem with a sledgehammer and for many environments they can be the most cost effective option. But for others, hybrid solutions may make more sense.

    Join Storage Switzerland and Tegile Systems for a live, interactive webinar as we discuss the various challenges that VDI scale brings to storage and how All-Flash Arrays and Hybrid Arrays can address those challenges.
  • How Snapshots CAN be Backups Recorded: Feb 19 2015 63 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    Snapshots have been a key feature of primary storage infrastructures that IT professionals have relied on for years. But storage systems have traditionally been able to support only a limited number of active snapshots. And snapshots, being pointers and not actual data, are also susceptible to a primary storage system failure. As a result, most IT professionals use snapshots sparingly for protecting data. In this webinar Storage Switzerland and Nexenta show you how primary storage can be architected so that snapshots are able to meet almost all of the data protection requirements an organization has.
  • Why 2015 is the Year of Copy Data - What are the requirements? Recorded: Feb 12 2015 63 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    Data is the new currency of business. To fully protect and exploit this data requires that it be copied to various backend processes like data protection, compliance and data analytics. The problem is that primary data is growing by 35 to 50% per year, the need to copy all this data can exacerbate this problem by 10X! Data centers have to find a way to mitigate this problem but still drive full value from backend processes.

    In 2015 IT professionals will be hearing a lot about how copy data management will address this problem. But all copy data solutions are not created equal. Join us for our live webinar “Why 2015 is the Year of Copy Data” to listen to experts from Storage Switzerland and Catalogic to define exactly what copy data is and what IT professionals should expect from these solutions.
  • Hyperscale Nightmare-Potential Consequences of using Consumer SSDs in Datacenter Recorded: Jan 29 2015 61 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    Hyper-scale data centers (and many enterprises as well) face relentless pressure to contain costs. One way to lower those costs is to use consumer-grade solid-state drives in their scale-out server architectures, instead of the enterprise-class SSDs that are routinely used in these environments. This strategy can lower the initial cost for flash drives, but can have other undesirable consequences that cause real, long-term problems. In these high drive-count infrastructures, deploying the wrong flash can cause a nightmare scenario of:

    • Inconsistent Performance of non-enterprise drives
    • Poor Reliability of non-enterprise drives
    • Replacement of failed drives - adds cost, disruption
    • Management of mixed drive environment - can be complex
    • High Cost - of abandoning alternative SSDs altogether

    Protect yourself and register for our live webinar “Hyper-scale Nightmare: 5 Ways Flash can Cripple your Data Center” featuring Storage Switzerland Founder, George Crump and Shawn Worsell, Director of Product Management at OCZ/Toshiba.
