  • The Power To Be Free: Migrate, Recover, Protect And Deduplicate Data Apr 28 2015 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Peter McCallum, FalconStor
    Managing data has entered a higher realm. Enterprises are looking for a flexible approach to data management to move, store, protect, and recover data – without tying their business to specific hardware, network or interconnect protocols. Migrating data from old legacy platforms to new ones and having too many complex incompatible tools present challenges. Businesses need converged data services that work horizontally as well as modernizing data storage without “rip and replace.” FreeStor is the new paradigm in data services. With the brilliance of a single, software-defined platform that works across legacy, modern and virtual environments, IT managers can tap the smartest data solutions from one pane of glass.

    Peter McCallum from FalconStor will discuss the following topics on April 28th at 3:00pm:

     True Software Defined Storage and its impact on a hybrid datacenter

     How Intelligent Abstraction merges legacy and modern infrastructure for optimized IT processes

     Rethinking how we provision, protect, and recover data resources, and how that impacts your

    business.

     FalconStor in the modern datacenter: meeting you where you are, and getting you to where you

    want to be.
  • Using the Cloud to Create a Truly All-Flash Data Center Apr 28 2015 5:00 pm UTC 60 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

  • Decoupled Storage: All Flash Performance Without An All Flash Array Apr 28 2015 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Nick Suh, Head of Product and Solution Marketing, PernixData
    Virtualization has revolutionized the modern data center. But traditional storage systems are struggling to keep pace, introducing performance bottlenecks and unnecessary cost and complexity. Flash offers the potential for relief, but where is it ideally placed – in the server, storage or both? And what software is required to best utilize this resource? PernixData FVP software enables an architecture decoupling storage performance from capacity to utilize high speed server media in conjunction with shared storage to deliver the maximum VM performance at the lowest cost.
  • Snapshots: Can you keep the beauty but lose the beast? Apr 28 2015 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Nigel Tozer, EMEA Product Marketing Director
    Let’s be straight about this: snapshots are real beast to tame. Snapshots can devour space, make recovery harder, make protection riskier and lock you into hardware platforms that will drain your budget. It’s the reason why you probably only rely on them for a few critical systems today. But it doesn’t’ have to be this way; they could form the cornerstone of your modern IT data protection.

    Reverting to a previous snapshot after a terminal data corruption is a beautiful thing. Near instant, from an almost impact free protection operation. In a perfect world, modern IT would rely on array based snapshots and integrated copy/replication as the only protection method.

    In this session, Nigel Tozer will discuss the reality, and show you how to:

    - Significantly reduce the cost of array snapshots
    - Dramatically simplify the recovery of tier 1 & 2 applications
    - De-risk the protection of high workload VMs
    - Remove the risk and cost of scripting to manage snapshot integration
    - Break disk vendor lock-in
    - Enable Cloud DR and Dev & Test

  • Leveraging the Hybrid Cloud for Complete Data Protection Recorded: Apr 21 2015 43 mins
    Jayme Williams, Senior Systems Engineer, TenCate
    Jayme Williams, Senior Systems Engineer at TenCate is protecting eight environments across the US and Canada – and each site has different storage. All sites require disaster recovery and backup across the application set. Having one solution would be ideal, but not possible – until they came across Zerto.
    Zerto Virtual Replication is storage agnostic and made it easy to integrate a new site into their disaster recovery plan. Their original business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) plan, affectionately named the “Hit by the bus” book due to its volume, has been greatly simplified and the service levels they are seeing are outstanding – single digit seconds for their recovery point objectives (RPO).

    Finally, they are incorporating public cloud into their IT plans by backing up their applications from their DR site to AWS. With one solution, they can achieve their BC/DR and backup SLA, while reducing costs and introducing public cloud into their IT strategy at a pace that supports changing business requirements.

    With Zerto Virtual Replication:
    •Manage all sites in one pane of glass with one tool for replication and automation of failover, failback and testing processes as well as backup
    •Increase efficiencies with the ability to track and manage consumption across the hybrid cloud
    •Hardware agnostic solution does not require a change in the infrastructure reducing costs
    •Consistency in the BC/DR solution dramatically reduces operational costs
    •Replicates between different types of storage and versions of VMware vSphere making it easy to add new sites to the process
    •Point-in-time recovery enables failover to a previous point to recover from any issue – logical corruption, datacenter outage, etc.
    •Leveraging a public cloud strategy with backups stored in Amazon
