Optimizing Big Data Clusters in Production - Performance, Capability, and Cost

Come join us as we learn how to tackle and manage big data application performance. First, Taneja Group Sr. Analyst Mike Matchett will present his take on how enterprise IT is now being challenged to support big data applications in real production environments. He'll discuss why too many enterprises haven't been as successful as they should in taking advantage of their big data opportunities - in many cases losing out to competitors. He'll explore what agile IT/devops really needs to do to not only effectively host, but deliver top-notch, consistent big data performance with the smallest infrastructure cost. 
Then Sean Suchter, co-founder and CEO at Pepperdata will present their compelling approach to solving big data cluster performance challenges. He'll demonstrate how Pepperdata's dynamic run-time optimizations can guarantee consistent performance SLA's in a shared multi-tenant Hadoop cluster. Because Pepperdata delivers detailed visibility into Hadoop cluster activity , the software becomes invaluable for cluster troubleshooting, reporting/chargeback, capacity planning, and other management and optimization requirements. With Pepperdata, IT can now effectively, efficiently, and reliably support all the business-empowering big data applications of an organization. This webcast will be 45 minutes with time reserved for Q+A.

Hyperscale Public Cloud vs Value-Add Cloud from DP/DR Vendors: Which is Better?

Hyperscale clouds get all of the press, but is it really a case of “go big or go home”? The giant cloud providers offer great prices on bulk storage but the cloud can act as much more than just a backup destination. There’s a lot of value residing within the individual cloud offerings of the data protection vendors, with an entire spectrum of services ranging from standard backup storage to Managed Archiving to Disaster Recovery as a Service. And more. 

Join us on this panel discussion to learn about what’s available and how to take full advantage of the range of cloud services offered so that you can precisely match vendors’ offerings to your business needs.

How to Sell Backup to Your CFO

A CFO is responsible for managing financial risks, so getting their buy-in on a data backup and recovery strategy should be easy – right? But some CFOs focus on minimizing costs and see data protection as another expense from IT that spends a lot of money already. You need a plan. 

Check out this upcoming live and interactive eSeminar and join IT pros from the Taneja Group and Unitrends as they discuss how to create a bridge between you and your CFO with a shared understanding between risk and reward.

Solving Today’s Top 5 Performance Management Issues

Real-World Solutions to Help CIOs & IT Management Sleep Better

As IT pros who have been in your shoes, we know what keeps you up at night.

CIOs and IT managers today must focus not only on being transformational for their businesses, but also monitor technical performance issues that could bring businesses to their knees.

We understand the constant pressure to focus on larger, "more pressing" issues like cost-cutting, consolidation, outsourcing, research, and implementation of new technology for competitive advantage. And we know that it's not hard for the common day-to-day performance and user experience headaches caused by any data center environment to be lost in the mix.

Join us for a dynamic, "from the trenches" executive overview as we discuss how you can manage these business-critical responsibilities by optimizing infrastructure performance management. Our presenters have decades of experience managing IT data center problems and solutions, and will share best practices to help you and your team sleep better.

Video Roundtable: What’s Wrong with Big Data?

Three leading Big Data experts discuss the problems and challenges that businesses have with leveraging Big Data.

Big Data is touted as the Holy Grail of modern competitive business – a multi-faceted tool that produces exponential profits for those companies smart enough to leverage this smart, hip technology. But wait – that sound you’re hearing is profound backlash. Big Data, still new and still quite immature, produces as many questions as answers. How to interpret the data? How to gather and input the data? When to trust the “answer,” if the result of a Big Data query can be called an answer. The market offers a blizzard of products and solutions, without mentioning the myriad issues involved in interpretation. In this video roundtable, three Big Data experts will attempt to provide guidance for companies working to leverage the new magic of Big Data.

So you think you know VVols

VM-aware storage is the future. It brings storage into alignment with virtual machines, and makes the jobs of virtualization and storage admins much easier. VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes (VVol) brings vSphere 6 closer to that vision, but what is less clear is whether conventional storage can actually deliver on the VVol promise. And there are still many questions: how does VVol work, how well do conventional storage vendors work with VVol, and what VM-aware storage features does VVol support?

Join us for a webinar featuring experts from The Taneja Group and Tintri as we discuss the roots, the promise, and the future of VVols, and how Tintri VM-aware storage delivers the benefits of virtual volumes today across multiple hypervisor platforms.
