  • You Bought All-Flash, Now What? Apr 20 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland & HPE
    Have you made the jump to all-flash storage? Are you planning to? If so this webinar is for you. We will look at what's next after (or before) the jump to all-flash. An all-flash array brings many benefits to the environment, but it also either exposes weaknesses or raises expectations in IT's ability to consistently deliver performance to applications, to protect the data those applications create and to ensure the organization can rapidly recover from almost any disaster.
  • Live From DockerCon 2017: Storage Strategies for Docker - Panel Discussion Apr 19 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    George Crump, Storage Swiss, Erin Boyd, Principle Software Engineer, Red Hat + Panelists
    Join Storage Switzerland and leaders from the Docker industry for a round-table discussion on developing the right storage strategies to successfully deploy and manage Docker both in your environment and in the cloud. There are a group of vendors trying to make the storage architectures that support Docker easier to use, more enterprise class and able to provide data persistence. Storage Switzerland will moderate a roundtable discussion on Storage, Docker and how to build enterprise class environments that support legacy applications. We will cover areas like who should be using Docker, can legacy data centers participate, what are the storage challenges with a containerized environment and what are the issues with moving containers from on-premises to the cloud?
  • Webinar: 3 Reasons You Are Losing the Data Management Battle Apr 13 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland and Dternity/StrongBox Data Solutions
    and How To Start Winning
    Organizations managing data have a competitive advantage over organizations that don't. But most organizations don't have the time or tools available to implement a successful data management strategy. It’s not for a lack of trying. Many organizations fight a losing battle when trying to implement a data management solution. In this webinar Storage Switzerland and Dternity/StrongBox Data Solutions will discuss the three reasons why organizations are losing the data management battle, and provide guidance on how to start winning the battle.
  • The Always-on Enterprise Requires New Service Level Objectives Apr 12 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Charlie Hodges, Storage Switzerland
    The Always-on Enterprise is a data center that faced with even the most severe disaster can return applications to full working order in a matter of minutes. Service level objectives (SLOs) are the means by which IT and the organization communicate how the protection and recovery process will work. The challenge is the status quo SLO won't meet the new "always-on" expectation. You need to protect data more frequently, recover more rapidly and provide better performance in the recovered state.

    It is time for IT to re-think SLOs and the solutions to meet them. Join experts from Storage Switzerland, Veeam and NetApp as they review the NEW SLO requirements and how you can meet those requirements while controlling costs.
  • 5 Must-Haves to Achieve Total File Security in the Cloud Apr 11 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland, CTERA, IBM
    Today’s IT professional is stuck in the middle of a file sharing tug of war. One side has the end users who want the improved productivity that mobility and collaboration promises. The other side consists of corporate governance that wants to eliminate data breaches and improve data protection. In this live webinar, join experts from Storage Switzerland, CTERA and IBM as we discuss the "5 Must-Haves" so IT can make both sides of the issue happy while at the same time making its job easier.
  • Podcast: What does Converged, Hyperconverged, Hybrid Cloud, etc.. Really Mean? Mar 31 2017 4:45 pm UTC 60 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    Storage Switzerland will tackle one of the biggest challenges facing IT professionals today during a special, live podcast. We will explain what vendors mean when they use terms like converged, hyperconverged, hybrid cloud, instant recovery, continuous data protection, the list goes on. Its confusing because many vendors use the same terms to describe different capabilities or technologies. Join to Storage Switzerland and we’ll sort the whole thing out. You, the listener, get to drive the conversation. You'll vote for the terms you want to discuss and we'll talk about them!
  • Capacity - Ransomware - Protection - Three Windows File Server Upgrades to Avoid Recorded: Mar 28 2017 60 mins
    Charlie Hodges, Storage Switzerland
    For most enterprises, optimizing your Windows fileserver means buying a new, bigger server with more capacity and better network connections. Or it means buying a dedicated Network Attached Storage (NAS) system. Then they feel they need to add new ransomware and data protection software. All of these "solutions" are expensive, involve a costly data migration and don't really increase IT efficiency. In this webinar, experts from Storage Switzerland and Caringo will teach you how data management can eliminate the need for additional Windows file servers, capacity and protection.
  • ChalkTalk Video - Primary Storage Should Protect Itself Recorded: Mar 23 2017 4 mins
    George Crump
    Storage that is protects itself aids in the data protection and disaster recovery processes without compromising traditional primary storage performance and features. It does this through a combination of its own capabilities (snapshots, basic replication as well as multi-site and synchronous replication) and by complementing or enhancing existing backup solutions – but not replacing them. While many storage systems have replication capabilities, self-protecting primary storage differs in the implementation of those replication tasks, the number of locations that can be a part of that task and the monitoring of those tasks to ensure successful completion.
  • Storage Refresh? 3 Capabilities Primary Storage Must Have (but probably doesn't) Recorded: Mar 23 2017 59 mins
    Storage Switzerland and Nexsan
    If your organization is embarking on a refresh of your primary storage system this year, this is the one webinar that you will want to attend. IT evaluators that haven't looked at storage in a few years, will be impressed the use of flash to improve performance, while many claim to integrate file (NFS, SMB) and block (iSCSI, Fibre) protocols. These features though are now table stakes for the modern storage solution.

    While all of these features are important (and not created equal), IT professionals should demand capabilities that solve today's organizational challenges like eliminating shadow IT, improving multi-site productivity and long term data retention as well as meeting increasingly strict compliance standards. IT professionals should look for not only high performance and universal protocol support but also enterprise file sync and share, inter-data center sync and secure archive with compliance.
  • The 5 Disaster Recovery Questions You’re Not Asking Recorded: Mar 21 2017 62 mins
    Curtis Preston, Storage Switzerland
    Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is changing the way data center administrators think about disaster recovery. A DR site and equipment no longer need to be bought in advance. DRaaS instead enables DR to be on-demand. The concept is so appealing that vendors are racing into the market claiming to offer DRaaS capabilities. But DRaaS is more than a simple check mark for a DR requirement. Organizations need to realize that how well the service performs is critical to successfully surviving a disaster.
  • Is It Time to Modernize NAS? Recorded: Mar 16 2017 5 mins

  • DRaaS Best Practices - 5 Critical Recovery Steps Recorded: Feb 23 2017 62 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) offers organizations one of the most viable recovery options available to them in recent years. The ability to have an on-demand recovery site that is pre-seeded with your data should dramatically lower costs and improve recovery times, even in the worst of disasters. But IT professionals can't take for granted that DRaaS providers will continue to cover data protection basics while also providing a seamless recovery experience. In this webinar, join Storage Switzerland Lead Analyst George Crump and Carbonite Senior Solutions Engineer Jason Earley as they provide you with the 5 Critical Recovery Steps for using DRaaS.
  • Is Your Storage Ready for Disaster? Recorded: Feb 22 2017 60 mins
    W. Curtis Preston with StorageSwiss, Lei Yang and Bill Roth with Tintri
    The recovery expectations of users and organizations is changing and their tolerance for downtime is lower than ever. IT professionals can no longer rely on the traditional backup and recovery process to meet these new requirements. Primary storage needs to do more, and simple LUN-based replication is not going to get the job done. Instead data centers need to look for primary storage that has advanced replication capabilities and can integrate with multiple hypervisors and existing data protection solutions to create a holistic disaster recovery strategy.
  • Moving VMware from Disaster Recovery to High Availability Recorded: Feb 21 2017 60 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    VMware's stretch cluster does an excellent job of protecting against a site failure. If your primary data center fails then it is easy to bring up VMs in the second site. But what if you need more? How can you extend VMware's stretch cluster capability from single site protection to multiple sites? What if you want to extend recovery into the cloud? A multi-site and multi-cloud data distribution strategy not only creates more resilient IT operations, it also empowers workload mobility.

    In this live webinar Storage Switzerland and Hedvig will discuss the limitations of VMware stretch cluster, the possibilities of a more highly available approach and how to achieve complete IT resiliency.
