Flip the Switch to Elastic Data Fabric Storage Infrastructure

IT decision-makers and influencers such as IT Directors, Managers, Architects, and Storage Administrators are dealing with serious pain points and challenges in managing their storage infrastructures for today and tomorrow. Enterprises are trapped in a world with legacy fixed silo-based storage infrastructure wanting to transform to a world with flexible, agile, and scaleable application-driven, software-defined data infrastructure. So how do you get of that trap? “Flip the Switch” to Datera Elastic Data Fabric storage infrastructure. What the attendees will learn? - What Datera's software-defined storage solution has to offer from a price-performance flexibility standpoint for massively virtualized applications in VMware environments. - How to scale on demand without the need for extensive capacity planning. - How to automate your storage infrastructure and improve resource utilization for all diverse business demands. - How to achieve the AWS/Public Cloud-like operational model for On-Prem storage. - How to future proof your data infrastructure beyond Virtualized environments into the dev-ops centric, container-based, micro-services oriented applications.

Tame copy sprawl and accelerate new copy use cases with copy data management

We are drowning in copy data. Snapshots have become a widely used tool for data protection. Many internal development teams have seen the value of snapshots to speed delivery of test and production systems. Managing all of this copy data with old siloed tools is highly complex and results in increased CapEx because storage is taken up by too many copies. It results in increased OpEx because it takes more work to manage all of that copy data with siloed tools. Copy data management is an emerging IT modernization technology that centralizes management, reduces the number of copies required to meet your needs, and accelerates key use cases such as test and development and devops. 

Join us to hear the latest market trends in copy data management and how IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management helps to solve this challenge.

Data Protection in the Era of Hyperconvergence

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.

Enterprise IoT: Experts Discuss Strategies

The Internet of Things is an emerging technology with a stunningly rapid growth curve. It’s predicted that nearly $6 trillion will be spent on IoT over the next five years. The lion’s share will spent by enterprise customers, who look to IoT to boost productivity, lower business costs, and help expand into additional markets. In recent QuinStreet research, more than half of survey respondents considered IoT to be critical to the growth and success of their organization.

In this video roundtable discussion, four IoT thought leaders discuss issues like security, analytics, deployment strategies, and the future of the IoT sector.

Emerging Technologies in Storage: Disaggregation of Storage Function

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

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.
