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.
Storage has become the Achilles’ heel for many datacenter applications. It’s become expensive, constantly requires capacity expansion, and requires staff to keep it operational. Many customers are also dealing with the perpetual cycle of costly support and maintenance.
Today, there are dozens of different storage options at your disposal. All of these solutions have a place in the market and each one carries its own set of benefits. Whether you’re looking for capacity, performance or TCO savings, an appropriate solution does exist for you.
This webinar is your opportunity to get a better understanding of Tegile and the unique differentiation it provides in the storage market.
High Performance or Capacity – Making the Right Choice
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 is no question – flash arrays have made a dramatic impact to high performance enterprise applications. But what about all the rest of the data? There are use cases that require cold data be stored for long term compliance and simple “keep everything forever” company cultures. There are also heavy bandwidth applications that need much more capacity than what’s needed to accelerate a database redo log.
Come hear about how flash array technologies are advancing to finally deliver on the promise of an All-Flash data center. Tegile ‘s Rob Commins will discuss these advancements and identify key points for IT leaders to consider as they develop their digital transformation strategy.

Microsoft has done an amazing job of evolving the SQL Server platform. Looking back from SQL Server 7.0 and SQL Server 2000 to the current crop of SQL Server 2012 and SQL Server 2014 and the upcoming release of SQL Server 2016, it has been quite a journey in terms of feature set and value proposition. No matter how big or small a business is or the magnitude of the SQL Server footprint, one ubiquitous requirement is the need for a relevant Disaster Recovery Strategy.
The traditional SQL Server footprint is becoming less defined with the hybridization of storage and the mingling of on-premise infrastructure with the cloud which adds further complexity to your backup and recovery strategy.
In this webinar we will have three experts talk about a complete solution for modern SQL Server Disaster Recovery requirements. This solution is designed to provide high performance with flash storage, reliability, and the ability to take advantage of the cloud solutions like Microsoft Azure.
The shape of SQL Server is changing in the Modern Data Center. On one side, use of cloud technologies like Microsoft Azure is rapidly increasing, while on the software side, innovative solutions like SIOS Datakeeper is making DR options possible that were previously only theoretical concepts, and finally on the storage side, full stack flash storage solutions from Tegile are providing a high performance backbone that is highly customizable. With so many changes happening simultaneously, one has to think about how to utilize these innovative technologies together to create useful and compelling SQL Server architectures.
In this webinar, we have invited Denny Cherry, SQL Server MVP and VMware vExpert, to share his ideas on what some of these architectures may look like. Denny, along with Sumeet Bansal, the Principal Solutions Architect for Databases at Tegile, will talk about how to use the cloud effectively and how to create a multi-site data strategy. Denny will also talk about some useful cloud features in SQL Server 2016.
How can you take advantage of new insights to transform your organization?
The IT landscape is changing. Devices and applications generate data every millisecond of every day.

For most IT storage managers, the all-flash data center is still quite a ways off. Hybrid flash systems address performance workloads for most applications, and when all-flash arrays are used, they are typically used with traditional disk based systems, making a “heterogeneous hybrid” storage environment. How do IT managers decide what approach is best, and how much flash is enough? Is there enough of a price-performance difference to warrant looking at different flash approaches? Are there data management challenges or opportunities with hybrid versus all-flash? Come hear how end users of both hybrid and all-flash storage systems arrived at their decisions and how their solutions are operating versus expectations. Storage upstart, Tegile Systems, carries both all-flash and hybrid systems and will share additional data and recommendations.
