Optimizing Big Data Clusters in Production - Performance, Capability, and Cost

Come join us as we learn how to tackle and manage big data application performance. First, Taneja Group Sr. Analyst Mike Matchett will present his take on how enterprise IT is now being challenged to support big data applications in real production environments. He'll discuss why too many enterprises haven't been as successful as they should in taking advantage of their big data opportunities - in many cases losing out to competitors. He'll explore what agile IT/devops really needs to do to not only effectively host, but deliver top-notch, consistent big data performance with the smallest infrastructure cost.
Then Sean Suchter, co-founder and CEO at Pepperdata will present their compelling approach to solving big data cluster performance challenges. He'll demonstrate how Pepperdata's dynamic run-time optimizations can guarantee consistent performance SLA's in a shared multi-tenant Hadoop cluster. Because Pepperdata delivers detailed visibility into Hadoop cluster activity , the software becomes invaluable for cluster troubleshooting, reporting/chargeback, capacity planning, and other management and optimization requirements. With Pepperdata, IT can now effectively, efficiently, and reliably support all the business-empowering big data applications of an organization. This webcast will be 45 minutes with time reserved for Q+A.

  • A Whole New World: Machine-Generated Data and Massive Scale-Out NAS Recorded: Nov 30 2016 60 mins
    Jeff Kato, Taneja Group, Jeff Cobb, Qumulo, Nick Rathke, SCI
    Computer users aren’t top data producers anymore. Machines are. Raw data from sensors, labs, forensics, and exploration are surging into data centers and overwhelming traditional storage. There is a solution: High performance, massively scale-out NAS with data-aware intelligence. Join us as Jeff Cobb, VP of Product Management at Qumulo and Taneja Group Senior Analyst Jeff Kato explain Qumulo’s data-aware scale-out NAS and its seismic shift in storing and processing machine data. We will review how customers are using Qumulo Core, and Nick Rathke of the University of Utah’s Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute will join us to share how SCI uses Qumulo to cut raw image processing from months to days.

  • Data Protection in the Era of Hyperconvergence Recorded: Aug 17 2016 61 mins
    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.
  • Practical Datacenter IT For The Deluge of IoT Recorded: Apr 20 2016 37 mins
    Mike Matchett, Sr. Analyst & Consultant, Taneja Group
    Come join Senior Analyst Mike Matchett's lively discussion about the concerns and challenges coming when the Internet of Things crashes into our enterprise datacenters. We think big data today is big, but future IoT data streams promise to swamp everything from servers to storage. And today's new big data applications will still need to become more real-time, more agile, distributed and even more scalable. What's coming down the road, and how should we start planning for the future today?
    This webcast will go for 30 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q & A session, where the audience is welcome to ask questions.

  • Hyperscale Public Cloud vs Value-Add Cloud from DP/DR Vendors: Which is Better? Recorded: Nov 17 2015 63 mins
    Mod: Arun Taneja; Christophe Bertrand, Arcserve; Austin McChord, Datto; Abhijit Dinkar, Dell; Mark Campbell, Unitrends
    Hyperscale clouds get all of the press, but is it really a case of “go big or go home”? The giant cloud providers offer great prices on bulk storage but the cloud can act as much more than just a backup destination. There’s a lot of value residing within the individual cloud offerings of the data protection vendors, with an entire spectrum of services ranging from standard backup storage to Managed Archiving to Disaster Recovery as a Service. And more.

    Join us on this panel discussion to learn about what’s available and how to take full advantage of the range of cloud services offered so that you can precisely match vendors’ offerings to your business needs.

  • Innovations in Storage – Data-Aware Storage Unveiled Recorded: Jun 23 2015 63 mins
    Jeff Kato, Taneja Group; John Joseph, DataGravity; Peter Godman, Qumulo; Shahbaz Ali, Tarmin
    Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss one of the newest trends in storage: Data-Aware Storage. Let’s face it, storage has been dumb for long enough and it is time to innovate in another dimension. Recently several “up-and-coming” storage companies have taken off the wraps of data-awareness by providing storage systems that can analyze, index, comply and make storage much smarter while operating in real-time without compromising the mission of providing primary storage capability. We will unpack the definition of data-aware storage as a panel of experts give their take on how data-aware storage products have impacted customer business outcomes.
    We will ask them questions such as: Why is the time ripe now for data-aware storage? What will the future bring in this space? What are the best applications and use cases to start implementing data-aware storage today?
