  • Leveraging Memory to Increase Disk Performance Leveraging Memory to Increase Disk Performance Petros Koutoupis, Lead Linux Systems Developer, IBM Cloud Object Storage (Cleversafe) Live 60 mins
    The future is now. Memory prices are dropping drastically and companies are investing heavily in them. That doesn't mean spinning magnetic disks are to disappear anytime in the near future. Their densities continue to rise and prices are significantly cheaper than that of memory. Operating at slower speeds, this presentation dives into the methods one can employ to increase the performance, and in turn the value of this slower and aging data storage technology.
  • “The Best Way To Predict Your Future Is To Create It.” “The Best Way To Predict Your Future Is To Create It.” Peter McCallum Recorded: Jan 24 2017 45 mins
    More so than ever before, businesses are requiring IT to become less about infrastructure and more about availability and mobility of data. Yesterday’s IT shops were defined by the technology they chose to use rather than capabilities they could deliver to the business and its workforce. End users have become more savvy and less willing to accept limitations of traditional, static services. Technology has to adapt to timing, location and value of data on a global basis without restrictions. Based on these trends, FreeStor grew from roots in static infrastructure to now support the widest interoperability across storage platforms, protocols, hypervisors, clouds, and applications in the industry. See how FreeStor is helping to drive the goal of “infrastructure anywhere” for seamless delivery of data anywhere users need to be.

  • How to Choose the Right Data Platform for Big Data Storage and Faster Apps How to Choose the Right Data Platform for Big Data Storage and Faster Apps Divya Mehra Principal Product Manager, Red Hat William Burns Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat Recorded: Jan 24 2017 58 mins
    The convergence of mobile, social, big data, and cloud has increased demands on applications to react instantaneously to changes in data at a large scale. A delay of a few seconds can mean the difference between engaging or losing a customer.

    Application performance is highly correlated to how quickly an app can access and process a variety of data types. It's crucial that data platforms provide high performance as data changes, scales out linearly to handle large data sets, and maintains data integrity and security.

    Watch this webcast to learn about the market and data trends driving the need for computing and in-memory storage.
  • Future-Proof Your Private Cloud with Software-Defined Storage Future-Proof Your Private Cloud with Software-Defined Storage Rob Whiteley, VP of Marketing, Hedvig Inc. Recorded: Jan 24 2017 47 mins
    Many large organizations either can’t or won’t go all-in on the public cloud. Regulatory compliance, legacy infrastructure, and costs drive these organizations to build private clouds. Do you invest in VMs or containers? Do you use OpenStack, Kubernetes, or Mesos to orchestrate your cloud? How will you bridge your private cloud with AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google Compute Cloud? You need a flexible architecture that not only embraces all the above, but facilitate frictionless movement among them.

    Specifically, you’ll learn how you can use software-defined storage to:
    1. Support any hypervisor, container, or cloud platform – simultaneously.
    2. Plug into any cloud orchestration tool to automate your private cloud.
    3. Integrate public cloud – and not just bolt it on – when you’re ready.
    4. Create self-service storage and sandboxes for DevOps environments.

    Growing exposure to IT risks has made organizations across industries volatile. Recent IT vendor incidents like data and security beaches, violation of privacy guidelines, which caused substantial fines, penalties, brand value, highlight that IT vendor risks are business risks and require focus from the leadership. An immature ITVRM programs limits the insights which are necessary for strengthening vendor relationships and building a robust ERM program. Rather than treating each risk in isolation, organizations need to have an integrated approach to manage risks holistically and in line with their business operations and objectives. With the growing dependency on IT and IT vendors, organizations need to align enterprise and IT VRM objectives to build a resilient framework suitable for today’s environment.

    During the session, panelists will discuss how organizations can strengthen vendor management in the current landscape and improve business performance.

    - Causes of Vendor Risks incidents and the impact on the enterprise
    - Best approach to align IT vendor risk to enterprise risk
    - Building mature VRM Program
