  • Multi-cloud Primary Storage: Avoid lock-in while shifting apps to the cloud Recorded: Nov 15 2017 54 mins
    Senior Analysts Jeff Kato and Jeff Byrne
    As the result of extensive primary end-user and multi-vendor research, including responses from 700+ IT decision makers, Taneja Group has learned that an increasing number of organizations are more motivated than ever before to move their applications in the cloud. However, they prefer to easily move those applications between on-premises and multiple clouds without having to modify the underlying storage infrastructure.

    Join us as we unpack this emerging market category along with SoftNAS, one of the vendors at the forefront of this trend.

    In this webinar we’ll cover:

    • How multi-cloud primary storage can span multiple cloud environments and mitigate the risk of moving to the public cloud

    • Lifting and shifting applications to a single public cloud or multiple public clouds without re-engineering the applications

    • Why the SoftNAS Cloud Data Platform enables enterprise on-premises file services to be collocated in public clouds

    About your hosts:
    Taneja Group’s Senior Analysts Jeff Kato and Jeff Byrne will discuss the research behind the Taneja Group’s Multi-Cloud Primary Storage market category. They will be joined by Rick Braddy, Founder, CEO and CTO at SoftNAS, who will describe how the SoftNAS Cloud Data Platform provides the best pathway to shift applications among on-premises, AWS, and Azure clouds.

  • Why All The Online Notebooks Recorded: Oct 26 2017 3 mins
    Mike Matchett, Sr. Analyst & Consultant, Taneja Group
    What’s a Notebook? In this new era of agility in application development and big data science, IT may be asked to host and support online notebook environments (e.g. Jupyter or Zeppelin) - documents that can contain live code, in-line documentation, and analytical results - for data scientists, agile programmers, and even business analysts who want to explore, document, and share their work. Notebooks are certainly good for knowledge capture, but are also increasingly being leveraged as re-usable analytical applications themselves.
  • Datrium Opens Up Convergence Recorded: Oct 23 2017 3 mins
    Mike Matchett, Sr. Analyst & Consultant, Taneja Group
    In IT, it’s inevitable that components in our “base" layers eventually mature and can be converged into more cohesive building blocks over time. We’ve seen rack-scale IT convergence turn into IT appliance Hyperconvergence as key storage and networking functionality was finally implemented as fungible software running in commoditized or virtualized server hosting. Now Datrium sticks a knife into the monolithic Hyperconvergence appliance approach and shows how convergence can be “opened” up and applied across functionally distributed (i.e. cheaper and more efficient) infrastructure - better performance with cheaper server-side flash, lower cost with shared networked pools of capacity for data protection.
  • The Emerging Impact of NVMe-oF and Storage Class Memory Recorded: Oct 17 2017 61 mins
    Jeff Kato, Senior Analyst & Consultant, Taneja Group
    Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss the latest—and potentially most game-changing—technology disruptors to traditional storage architectures since flash: NVMe over fabric and Storage Class Memory.

    It was just five years ago that Flash technology transformed the traditional storage market forever. Modern flash-first arrays are now the new normal for traditional storage. Will a new shared storage access protocol called NVM express over Fabric (NVMe-oF) combined with the advent of storage class memory (SCM) be equally disruptive to traditional storage over the next five years as NAND flash technology was in the past?

    Vendors are now announcing new products and future architectures to enable them to support these new technologies. With the help of a lively panel of experts from HPE, Pivot3, and Mellanox, we will unpack this topic and explore how their innovative approaches to leveraging Storage Class Memory and NVMe-oF can radically improve storage products and solutions.
  • Disruption of the file storage market: Extending file storage to the cloud Recorded: Oct 11 2017 43 mins
    Taneja Group Senior Analysts Jeff Kato & Jeff Byrne with Qumulo Senior Product Manager Justin Mahood
    In over 400 interviews with IT decision makers, the Taneja Group learned that an increasing number of organizations want not just to store files in the cloud, but to easily move those files between the cloud and on-premise.

    In response, the Taneja Group has identified an emerging set of storage products they call “multi-cloud primary storage” that can span multiple environments. One of the vendors at the forefront of this trend is Qumulo, whose “universal-scale storage” product, Qumulo File Fabric (QF2), allows cloud instances and computing nodes on standard hardware to work together to form a single, unified file fabric.

    Join Taneja Group Senior Analysts Jeff Kato and Jeff Byrne as they discusses the research behind the Taneja Group’s Multi-Cloud Primary Storage report. They will be joined by Qumulo employee Justin Mahood, who will describe why the “universal-scale” of QF2 is the best way to store files in the cloud and on-premise.

    Jim Whalen, Taneja Group; Patrick Rogers, Cohesity; Jesse St Laurent, SimpliVity; Joe Noonan, Unitrends; Rick Vanover, Veeam
    Hyperconvergence is a rapidly growing and evolving force in the IT infrastructure space. Emerging from the factory pre-configured racking programs of the big IT equipment suppliers, it quickly morphed into a variety of VM-centric architectures where compute, storage and networking (and more) are all integrated below the hypervisor and provide a unified platform to run virtual workloads on. The questions surrounding Data Protection are many: Is a DP mechanism even needed in a distributed cluster architecture that hyperconverged platforms typically drive? What’s the role of traditional backup software and appliances? Is physical server backup still important? What’s the optimum solution for backing up a hyperconverged platform? Is there an optimum solution?

    In this presentation, some of today’s leading vendors will give their take on what the intersection of Hyperconvergence and Data Protection means for the end user.

    PANELISTS:
    * Cohesity - Patrick Rogers, VP Marketing & Product Management
    * SimpliVity - Jesse St Laurent, VP of Product Strategy
    * Unitrends - Joe Noonan, Director, Software Product Management
    * Veeam - Rick Vanover, Director of Technical Product Marketing
  • Emerging Technologies in Storage: Disaggregation of Storage Function Recorded: May 19 2016 64 mins
    Jeff Kato, Taneja Group; Brian Biles, Datrium; Patrick Osborne, HPE; Kevin Fernandez, Nutanix
    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.

  • New Rules for Recovery: Setting Expectations for Today's Continuity Platforms Recorded: May 4 2016 47 mins
    Jim Whalen, Taneja Group; Dave LeClair, Unitrends
    Traditionally, when people talk about data protection, they’re talking about some form of backup. However, if those backups effectively end up in a “write-only memory”, they’re not much good. So really, the bottom line is recovery is what people are most concerned about when they talk about data protection. With the degree to which today’s technologies have been refined and the plethora of data protection platforms available, users should maintain a baseline set of simple expectations to be met no matter who or what they choose for the job. In this presentation, Taneja Group and Dave LeClair of Unitrends will discuss the “New Rules for Recovery” that everyone’s solution should adhere to.
