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.

VMware vSphere 6.0 Virtual Volumes allow vendors to integrate a variety of storage capabilities at a per-VM level, but vendor implementations vary greatly. Join this webinar to get a first look at what you can expect from the VVOL integration from leading vendors. Guest speaker Tom Fenton, Senior Validation Engineer from Taneja Group, who has had conversations with a large number of both vendors and end users about their VMware environment, will lead this vendor-neutral discussion on the state of the VVOL market.
Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss one of the newest trends in storage: Data-Aware Storage. Let’s face it, storage has been dumb for long enough and it is time to innovate in another dimension. Recently several “up-and-coming” storage companies have taken off the wraps of data-awareness by providing storage systems that can analyze, index, comply and make storage much smarter while operating in real-time without compromising the mission of providing primary storage capability. We will unpack the definition of data-aware storage and as a panel of experts will give their take on how data-aware storage products has have impacted customer business outcomes.
We will ask them questions such as: Why is the time ripe now for data-aware storage? What will the future bring in this space? What are the best applications and use cases to start implementing data-aware storage today?

Join us for a fast-paced and informative 30-minute webinar in which the Taneja Group will talk with David Bailey about how he was able to store over 10 billion files. We will discuss with David how he was able to design a 10 Billion file storage system, who is using systems of this size, how he tracks the analytics for a system this large and what this means for the datacenter. David works for Qumulo, a leader in “data-aware” storage systems. Data-aware systems have real-time analytics that enable users to instantly obtain information about data and how it is being used. Attendees will be encouraged to submit their questions during the session.

Join us in a series of fast-paced and informative 60-minute webinars on vSphere Virtual Volumes (VVol). In this session, the Taneja Group will talk with David Glynn from Dell Storage. VVols is packaged as a feature in nearly all VMware vSphere Editions and is being embraced by VMware’s storage partners at an unprecedented rate. IT professionals, especially those involved in datacenter operations, are showing great interest in implementing VVol in their own environments.
The Taneja Group will discuss VVol technology with David and the impact this game-changing capability will have in the datacenter and how Dell is enabling this technology with their arrays. Attendees will be encouraged to submit their questions during the session.
