The Final Frontier For High Performance Flash

The Final Frontier For High Performance Flash

Flash storage is the “go to” option in the modern data center to overcome storage I/O bottlenecks. The problem has been how to get full performance for the flash investment. The zero latent nature of flash exposes bottlenecks throughout the I/O chain. In this interactive webinar, Storage Switzerland’s Lead Analyst, George Crump and SanDisk’s Director of Marketing, Esther Spanjer will discuss how the various storage interconnects (SAS/SATA HBA’s and PCIe bus) have incurred a latency penalty. These interconnects have kept flash storage from reaching its full potential. The memory bus is the final frontier in flash performance.

In this webinar you will learn:
•How latency is introduced by each flash interconnect
•What the performance ramifications are of this latency
•How to reach the full performance potential of flash based storage by leveraging the memory bus
•How memory bus based flash changes the game for how flash can be utilized in the data center

Please join us on December 10th 2013 at 1PM Eastern, Noon Central and 10am Pacific for this informative webinar.

  • NAS vs Object - Can NAS Make a Comeback? Oct 2 2019 5:00 pm UTC 58 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Qumulo
    For over a decade Network Attached Storage (NAS) was the go to file storage device for organizations needing to store large amounts of unstructured data. But unstructured data is changing. While large file use cases are still prevalent, small file use cases are becoming more dominant. Workloads like artificial intelligence, analytics and IoT are typically driven by millions, if not billions of small files.

    Object Storage is often hailed as the heir apparent but is it? Can file systems be redesigned to continue to support traditional NAS workloads while also supporting modern, small file and high velocity workloads? Join Storage Switzerland and Qumulo for our live webinar, “NAS vs. Object — Can NAS Make a Comeback,” to learn the state of unstructured data storage and if NAS file systems can provide a superior alternative to object storage.

    Join us on our live event to learn

  • Panel Discussion: Is Computational Storage a Better Path to Extreme Performance? Recorded: Jul 25 2019 33 mins
    Storage Switzerland, NGD Systems, ScaleFlux, Samsung
    Vendors are re-writing software and adding custom hardware in an attempt to not bottleneck extremely low latency NVMe Flash and Storage Class Memory technologies. Eventually, they all are at the mercy of physics. Data has to traverse an internal and sometimes and external network so the computing tier can process it. Computational Storage offers an alternative by performing at least some of the processing on the storage device itself, eliminating most of the network activity.

    Join Storage Switzerland's Lead Analyst, George Crump as he leads a panel of computational storage experts to include NGD System's Scott Shadley, ScaleFlux's Thad Omura, and Samsung's Pankaj Mehra as preview the Computational Storage Workshop at the Flash Memory Summit on Thursday, August 8th.

  • Ransomware, Rapid Restoration and Disasters - Recovering from Backup’s Big Three Recorded: Jun 27 2019 54 mins
    Storage Switzerland, StorageCraft
    Organizations need to make sure their backup infrastructure can meet the recovery objectives of today’s biggest challenges: ransomware, rapid restoration and disasters. Businesses expect their IT teams to recover faster than ever and they need business performance to be the same during the recovery effort as it is during normal production. Meeting these new challenges and expectations requires IT to rethink the backup process.

    Ransomware requires rapid, frequent backups of all types of data and that the backup software also protects itself. Rapid recovery is more than just instantiating a VM from backup storage. It requires understanding the impact on performance, as well as planning a path for migration back to production storage. Finally, there is the never-ending threat of site-wide disasters. Thanks to cyber-attacks, geographically safe areas don’t exist. All data centers must prepare for a site failure and for a rapid disaster recovery without impacting application performance.

    In our live webinar Storage Switzerland and StorageCraft will discuss why these are the top challenges facing the data protection architecture, why current data protection infrastructure won’t meet these challenges, and how to overcome them.

  • MeetTheCEO: Cloud Daddy’s Spencer Kupferman Recorded: Jun 25 2019 30 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Cloud Daddy
    As businesses migrate more of their data and applications to the cloud, a more comprehensive and mature disaster recovery implementation is required. Cloud service providers have built a base layer of data protection capabilities that focus primarily on enabling recovery from hardware failure, but the reality is that most recovery requests today stem from a cyberattack or from human error. As a result, cloud services need some help in the form of intelligent and granular search and tagging, as well as management capabilities such as the ability to schedule snapshots and apply retention policies.

    Cloud Daddy’s CEO, Spencer Kupferman, will join Storage Switzerland for a live webinar discussion regarding how the trifecta of increasing and more sophisticated malware attacks, regulatory oversight of data, and the shift to cloud are changing the face of the disaster recovery market. Register now to be sure you hear his perspective on why capabilities like simplified and centralized oversight of backup and replication jobs and cross-region backup and restore matter in today’s data protection paradigm.
  • MeetTheCEO: HotLink’s Lynn LeBlanc Recorded: Jun 20 2019 27 mins
    Storage Switzerland, HotLink
    Backups cannot be assumed to be safe today, against an emergence of more sophisticated malware. These new variants were designed to be discrete, often sitting idle and being copied across the backup repository to then attack slowly – all with the ultimate goal of attacking as many systems as possible while at the same time avoiding detection for as long as possible. To avoid restoring trigger files, IT must be able to proactively verify and monitor the quality and viability of backups. The problem is that legacy verification methods cannot keep up with the growing volume of backup data that must be verified or the frequency with which verification must occur.

    Lynn LeBlanc, CEO of HotLink, will join Storage Switzerland to share her perspective on how IT professionals may restructure their approach to backup verification so that all recovery points may be vetted, and malware attacks contained. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear her perspective on the new pain points related to backup verification that are emerging with modern ransomware, and how IT professionals may apply analytics and artificial intelligence for more efficient and thorough verification.

  • MeetTheCEO: Actifio’s Ash Ashutosh Recorded: Jun 12 2019 23 mins
    Storage Switzerland, Actifio
    Enterprises are dealing with a constant tide of copy data sprawl. More copies are being created to serve secondary business processes like analytics, test and development, and frequently with limited oversight or governance from IT. Meanwhile, regulations like the European Union’s (EU’s) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) require more data to be stored for longer periods of time. Copy data management (CDM) solutions can help to contain this sprawl, but they must be agile in order to effectively support business operations. Also, in order to truly minimize infrastructure-related costs, they should have the flexibility to be procured through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model.

    Ash Ashutosh, CEO of CDM pioneer Actifio, will join Storage Switzerland to share his perspective on how customer pain points related to managing copy data sprawl are evolving, and how his company is pivoting in-line with those requirements. Be sure to join and hear his thoughts on changing business models, and how CDM can not only support more efficient and effective business collaboration, but also to protect against the threat of ransomware and supporting compliance requirements.
