  • What’s best for VDI Hybrid or All-Flash Storage Mar 12 2015 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The top concern for IT planners looking to implement or expand the use of their VDI investment is storage performance. This is because every step that is taken to drive down cost per desktop, or improve the user experience, impacts storage performance and capacity. All-flash arrays address the performance problem with a sledgehammer and for many environments they can be the most cost effective option. But for others, hybrid solutions may make more sense.

    Join Storage Switzerland and Tegile Systems for a live, interactive webinar as we discuss the various challenges that VDI scale brings to storage and how All-Flash Arrays and Hybrid Arrays can address those challenges.
  • Storage for Big Data: Its Way More than JBODs and DAS Mar 12 2015 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Analytics clusters, typified by Hadoop, commonly use just a bunch of disks (JBOD) embedded in cluster nodes to create a storage layer. However, because users now want to run multiple applications within these clusters, this layer has to take on the characteristics of persistent storage where data can be maintained for long time periods. This webinar will review, evaluate and discuss implementations of persistent storage now emerging for Big Data that go well beyond just bunches of disks.
  • To Cloud or Not to Cloud? That is Not the Question. Mar 11 2015 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins

You are told you need to design your big data application for either the cloud or for an on-premises environment, and that your decision is irreversible. Find out why the world is actually a much happier place, one in which you can run your application in the cloud, on premises, or in both places - and even migrate it from one environment to another.
  • Cutting Through the Cloud and Software-Defined Storage Hype Mar 11 2015 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Technology gurus have inundated IT organizations with new acronyms, abbreviations, buzzwords, and catch phrases in an attempt to capture mindshare and stay current with industry evolution. Most recently, it's all about cloud, convergence, and software-defined storage (SDS). But what does it all really mean, and why should enterprise organizations care?

    Storage architectures have continued to evolve, thanks in part to the maturity seen in cloud and other technologies in the SDS space. SDS solutions, for example, allow IT entities to create a solution with somewhat commodity hardware to address nearly uncontrollable data growth. The challenges for enterprise organizations, across most verticals, is scaling storage to accommodate this rapid growth and address retention needs, while at the same time addressing performance bottlenecks, power utilization, data center space constraints, and, most critically, data availability and accessibility. Of course, cost is a big factor as well with today’s dwindling IT budgets.

    How can enterprises know what is right for their environments? What differentiates a converged infrastructure from a hyper-converged infrastructure?

    Join Seagate Chief Technology Evangelist David A. Chapa and Director, Global Alliance Partners Michael K. Connolly for a live webinar that will help you cut through the hype and learn more about:

    - Seagate's perspective on the market indicators
    - Top peer challenges, according to leading industry research
    - The difference between converged and hyper-converged infrastructures
    - Best and worst use case for SDS
