Find it With Multi-tiered Flash!
The all-flash data center was to solve all our problems. We’ve had all-flash arrays for half a decade. Where are the all-flash data centers? The problem is that performance and cost have been opposing forces in data storage systems for decades, especially in the initial all-flash era. Recent advancements in flash technology are finally breaking this tension and are enabling a new class of applications while driving costs down dramatically.
In this webinar you will hear about:
- New non-volatile memory express technology that is driving another 10X improvement in storage performance
- How NAND vendors are driving density far beyond what has been possible with traditional disk drives
- Advanced storage architectures that can leverage these technologies in the same system delivering unparalleled price:performance ratios to find the all-flash data center
In the era of digital business, IT leaders will have to transform themselves yet again, to be an agent for positive change. By focusing on platform creation, fostering risk-taking culture and realigning IT to manage change as opposed to reacting to change, IT leaders can lead the charge. Representatives from Tegile will examine these changes and explore advancements in storage technology that enable this transformation.
Customers who are deploying IoT platforms sometimes are forced to make difficult and limiting decisions for their infrastructure. Most application workloads are not consistent in their performance and capacity requirements, further compounding the difficulty on the infrastructure decision. A series of misleading choices often leads to over-engineering and thus overspending, or running systems that cannot meet the application demands. This webinar illustrates an approach for designing and configuring the compute and storage infrastructure for IoT. We will examine the importance of:
- Storage optimized along both the performance and capacity vectors of flash drive technologies providing great performance as well as extreme capacities.
- Fully flexible infrastructure providing several storage configurations allowing for an increase of raw performance with the addition of flash modules or increased capacity by adding cost effective dense storage(flash and/or HDD).
- Multi-pool internal architecture that is so in line with the “pooling” methodology internal to many IoT architectures that design and administration complexities are lessened or completely eliminated.

Business demands on IT infrastructure are increasing while the pace of change accelerates. In order to support business requirements, companies must understand the value that new storage technologies may provide. Storage technologies are emerging that provide benefits beyond those already delivered by Flash and SSDs. In order to evaluate and plan for these new technologies, it is important for companies to know how to evaluate their business needs in light of these emerging technologies. This session will cover the economic and performance benefits of non-volatile, memory-based storage technologies, along with new access methods known as NVMe.
Splunk does an excellent job of managing data, moving data between tiers which it calls buckets. But assigning Splunk to data management tasks takes compute power away from the primary objective — rapid data analysis. In this live webinar Storage Switzerland and Tegile will discuss how the default Splunk architecture works today, what the challenges with that architecture are and how to design a storage architecture for Splunk that is both high performance and cost effective.
High Performance or Capacity? The flash market started out monolithically. Flash was a single media type (high performance, high endurance SLC flash). Flash systems also had a single purpose of accelerating the response time of high-end databases. But now there are several flash options. Users can choose between high performance flash or highly dense, medium performance flash systems. At the same time, high-capacity hard disk drives are making a case to be the archival storage medium of choice. Join Tegile VP Rob Commins and Storage Switzerland Lead Analyst George Crump as they discuss how IT professionals can make the best decision for their organization.
Storage Switzerland will host a live webinar featuring lead analyst George Crump and Tegile Systems’ VP of Marketing Rob Commins. They will define IOPS, bandwidth and latency, and explain how to best develop an end-to-end architecture that delivers the maximum performance possible.

There have been two very powerful, but opposing forces in the storage portion of the data center. One side is pulling mostly second tier applications into the public cloud to move CAPEX into OPEX. The other side is implementing flash to accelerate applications that sit right next to the company’s income statement. There is a better answer: build private cloud that has the performance, security and control of on-premise IT, but carries the economics that are even more attractive than public cloud providers. Principal Analyst George Crump from Storage Switzerland and Tegile CMO Narayan Venkat will discuss “Flash as a Service” and what that can mean for your business.
