Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss one of the newest trends in storage: Disaggregation of traditional storage functions. A major trend within IT is to leverage server and server-side resources to the maximum extent possible. Hyper-scale architectures have led to the commoditization of servers and flash technology is now ubiquitous and is often times most affordable as a server-side component. Underutilized compute resources exist in many datacenters as the growth in CPU power has outpaced other infrastructure elements. One current hot trend— software-defined-storage—advocates collocating all storage functions to the server side but also relies on local, directly attached storage to create a shared pool of storage. That limits the server’s flexibility in terms of form factor and compute scalability.
Now some vendors are exploring a new, optimally balanced approach. New forms of storage are emerging that first smartly modularize storage functions, and then intelligently host components in different layers of the infrastructure. With the help of a lively panel of experts we will unpack this topic and explore how their innovative approach to intelligently distributing storage functions can bring about better customer business outcomes.

Server virtualization was supposed to consolidate and simplify IT infrastructure in data centers. But, that only “sort of happened”. Companies do have fewer servers but they never hit the consolidation ratios they expected. Why? In one word, performance.
Surveys show that 61% of companies have experienced slow applications after server virtualization with 77% pointing to I/O problems as the culprit.
Now, with hyper-converged, companies have another opportunity to fulfill their vision of consolidating and reduce the complexity of their infrastructure. But, this will only happen if their applications get the I/O performance they need.
Join us for this webinar where we will show you how to get industry leading I/O response times and the best price/performance so you can reduce and simplify your infrastructure.
As traditional enterprises look to experiment with emerging Docker use cases, the need to connect containers to persistent data or even just to share data between Docker containers becomes more obvious. However, this expansion has proven to be a challenge for infrastructure that relies on monolithic storage arrays. As a result, enterprises are looking to software-defined storage as a more attractive choice because of its flexibility, programmability and ability to provide well-managed, persistent storage. In this talk, you’ll get:
• What Docker is and is not, as well as container-specific storage challenges
• Why you need container-specific storage policies, SLAs, and classes of service (CoS)
• How to leverage software-defined storage solutions for Docker and containers
• When to use hyperconverged or hyperscale architectures for your Docker initiatives
As organizations move into the "3rd platform", they’ll need to discover new ways to support solutions like Private Cloud and Real-Time Analytics. The traditional disk-based storage they're depending on is not keeping up. Flash is transforming datacenter infrastructure performance, capacity and cost to address these challenges.
Join Chris Tsilipounidakis from Tegile as he examines the ways of transforming to a Flash datacenter to support various, mixed application workloads in an ever-changing ecosystem.
The movement away from electro-mechanical devices for primary storage to solid state technology continues. Flash technology has been immensely successful and continues to advance with greater density and less cost. It is also driving changes in the interfaces and protocols for storage from disk-based to memory-based. Additional solid state technology is entering the market and will create a hierarchy of different performance and cost storage. This presentation will discuss some of these changes and their potential impacts.

Enterprise wide area networks span tens, hundreds, thousands and even tens of thousands of branch offices resulting in a large hardware footprint, high power consumption, and significant cooling demands. It is no wonder that these networks can have a substantially negative impact on expenses, time and the environment.
Join this webinar to learn how a cloud-delivered software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) is green, lowers carbon footprints and is good for the environment and Earth. Gain a better understanding of how reducing cooling and power requirements in the branch, lower carbon emissions and fewer devices is helping businesses do more for the environment while at the same time saving money.
The cloud concept originated with the dot.com phenomenon in the early 2000s, but was brought to reality by the large web-based and social media companies in the last half dozen years. However, the requirements companies like Google and Amazon had for their clouds were beyond what traditional IT infrastructures could deliver - so they designed their own. These hyper-scale companies used software-defined, scale-out architectures and commodity hardware to build flexible, yet cost effective cloud infrastructures.
Enterprises are moving towards a cloud-based model to deliver IT services. They see the potential of the hyper-scalers’ approach to creating cloud infrastructures but don’t have the resources or expertise to make that do-it-yourself model work. The Open Storage Platform (OSP) provides these companies with a solution that leverages commercial, off-the-shelf components and a “roll your own” approach to building private clouds.
Join Evaluator Group Sr. Analyst, Eric Slack and learn how companies are using the Open Storage Platform to build private clouds. In this informative webinar you will get the information to:
Nick Serrecchia, Systems Engineer at Veeam and Terry Grulke, Sr. Technical Advisor at Quantum
