The All-Flash Fix: How to Create a Hybrid Storage Architecture

On-Demand Webinar

The All-Flash Data Center was supposed to eliminate all storage problems and allow the application architecture to scale to new heights. The problem is data capacities are growing faster than the cost per GB of flash can decrease. Most data centers can’t afford to go all-flash, and in most cases, since the bulk of data sits idle, it makes no sense to go all-flash. It is just more practical and cost-effective to design an architecture that leverages several storage systems to meet all the needs of the data center and to do so cost-effectively.

Join experts from Storage Switzerland and Western Digital as we discuss the All-Flash Fix, How to Create a Hybrid Storage Architecture. In this webinar you’ll learn how to create an architecture that meets the need to deliver high performance, protect the organization from disaster and meet the organization’s long-term data retention and privacy needs.

DeepStorage Test Drive: Tegile IntelliFlash T4000AFA

On-Demand Webinar

DeepStorage Labs is known in the storage industry for pushing equipment to its limits, and for reporting what really happens at the edge of a system’s performance. Tegile’s IntelliFlash T4000, unlike a few previous occupants of the DeepStorage Labs ThunderDome, stood up to our testing and delivered high IOPS at a maximum of 1MS latency.

DeepStorage subjected the IntelliFlash T4000 workloads from the usual 4KB “hero number” random read to workloads that simulate OLTP and OLAP database servers, a file server and an Exchange server. We determined the systems performance individually and in combination finally determining the system’s ability to support a mixed workload environment.

In this webinar we will:
– Introduce the IntelliFlash array
– Describe the testing process
– Present the results
– Review the test environment
– Provide links to the test workload VDbench configurations

Top Reasons for Considering NVMe-Based Storage

On-Demand Webinar

Is the latent value of your vast data resources being fully leveraged for your maximum success? Odds are, it’s probably not. Ironically, the growth and commercial success you are experiencing due to your data infrastructure, may grind it to a halt, unable to support the burgeoning info glut. “But, how can this be?” you may ask. The answer is simple, your digital business deserves better storage.

Join us for this webinar where we will explore the top reasons you should considering deploying NVMe-based storage in your enterprise. You’ll learn how NVMe can not only shift the current data bottleneck, but eliminate it all together while laying the groundwork for a future of highly-decentralized high-performance storage. More importantly, we’ll look beyond the speeds and feeds to envision how NVMe can act as a change agent to drive innovation and success in your business. Discover how NVMe can unlock the latent value of your data by delivering data to your fingertips while changing the fundamental economics of your storage and retrieval of data forever.

Flash to Flash to Cloud – Three Steps to Ending the Storage Nightmare

On-Demand Webinar

About this webinar
Three primary storage challenges that keep IT up at night:

1. How to keep up with application performance demand
2. How to affordably manage and store the vast amount of data that IT has to store
3. How to protect that data so that applications can quickly return to service if a server, storage system or entire data center fails

To meet these challenges IT has either used multiple solutions from multiple vendors, creating cost overruns and massive complexity or they have to try to consolidate to a single vendor via hyperconvergence or cloud migration leading to inefficient use of resources and feature shortfalls.

What You Need To Know
The storage market has transformed in recent years, with the standalone storage array being attacked from all sides by ambitious rivals vying for customer attention in a world demand more and more from beleaguered IT departments. Today, storage comes in all kinds of forms, from the aforementioned standalone arrays to systems built atop powerful software platforms to fully integrated offerings. We now live in a brave new world in which “buying storage” carries with it far more nuance than in days past. On top of the new choices available in form factor come new choices in media. Flash is now almost a requirement for many products, but that’s not enough for many, either. NVMe is now here to stay and promises to reimagine the data interface in a way that hasn’t been done in a generation.

With both current and emerging flash storage systems, companies are gaining benefits that were only dreams in the days of the disk-based SAN. Far beyond just providing crazy levels of performance, flash storage systems have the potential to help IT organizations focus on the business and less on technology. After all, when you have IOPS to spare, other metrics can take center stage. These can include latency, cost per gig, power consumption, gig per rack unit, and many more.

There are a whole lot of vendors in this burgeoning space, with more jumping in every day. Do you truly understand what each of them brings to the table and how they differ? This ActualTech Media 2018 Storage Flash, and NVMe Storage EcoCast is your opportunity to get deep understanding of this technology and gain knowledge about the leading vendors in this transformational market.

Modern Flash Storage for Best of Breed IoT Projects

On-Demand Webinar

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.
