  • Transform the Data Center with Software-Defined Storage Apr 29 2015 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    George Hamilton, Senior Manager, Product Marketing, Emerging Technologies Division
    The modern data center needs to support both traditional business applications and a host of new mobile, cloud, big data and social media applications. To support such diversity, data centers must deliver a wide variety of data services and access methods. To meet these needs, organizations rely on a variety of storage platforms from multiple vendors; each suited for particular application workloads. This diversity results in complexity and high operational costs that inhibit an organization’s ability to invest in new infrastructure to support modern applications and services.

    Software-defined Storage is much more than marketing buzz. Software-defined storage transforms today’s complex storage environments into simple, extensible and open platforms that are more agile and responsive to business users, developers and customers. SDS also delivers modern storage and data services as software-based services that can leverage existing infrastructure or commodity platforms to radically change storage economics and provide a clear path to the cloud.

  • Are you managing your data center or is it managing you? Apr 29 2015 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Soeren Schroeder, Vice President, UK/Ireland & Nordics/Baltics, FNT
    Energy efficiency is the top strategic goal for data center operators for a number of reasons. Many indicators and metrics are available to help manage data centers from an energy perspective. However, energy efficiency is just one way of looking at a data center:

    Data center service providers, like enterprise data centers, colocation providers and others, find themselves in a challenging and fast-changing competitive environment. Focusing only on efficiency in the data center is like driving a car at its optimal motor efficiency without taking care whether being on the best way to your destination. Other influences towards the data center have to be taken into account such as transparency over all data center assets, delivering the expected service quality and having the right metrics in place to run your data center successfully.

    In this webcast Soeren Schroeder showcases in an integrated approach; 3 ways to run your data center infrastructure successfully by also utilizing the concept of the Data Center Business Value Dashboards to implement and measure strategies for successful data center operation.

  • The Data Fabric Transforming the Datacentre Apr 29 2015 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Laurence James, NEMEA Product Alliances and Solutions, NetApp
    According to IDC, in the next two years, over 60% of companies will stop managing most of their IT infrastructure, relying on advanced automation and qualified partners to boost efficiency and directly tie datacenter spend to business value. In 2015 and beyond Cloud and Software Defined approaches will therefore continue to shift IT purchasing models. While the adoption of new business models continues at pace, the demand for storage will grow. This places broader pressures on IT Managers to manage their resources and budgets more effectively. The requirement for consistent Data Management supporting Data Governance and Stewardship will be a mandatory requirement in these Cloud and Software Defined migration Strategies. The need for a single, consistent, coherent data management process and methodology will be foundational, underpinning the concept of the Data Fabric enabled by Clustered Data ONTAP

    Join Laurence James as he discusses how Data Fabric could present the most powerful solution and demonstrates that while the standard model for IT provisioning and management is going through a revolution, the requirement for strong data management in a hybrid IT world will be paramount .

    Tim Nolte, Project Manager, HP
    Businesses are struggling to keep up with unpredictable demands, extreme data growth, and aggressive service-level agreements related to application and data availability. IT management is changing, and there is need for greater application administrator control over backup and recovery. Research shows that most enterprises have not significantly updated their data protection processes in the last 5-7 years. This has resulted in highly fragmented environments with multiple copies of information owned and protected in silos—in turn elevating cost and complexity. The need is there, and customers are aware of current data protection shortcomings
