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.

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.

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.

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.
Come join Senior Analyst Mike Matchett's lively discussion about the concerns and challenges coming when the Internet of Things crashes into our enterprise datacenters. We think big data today is big, but future IoT data streams promise to swamp everything from servers to storage. And today's new big data applications will still need to become more real-time, more agile, distributed and even more scalable. What's coming down the road, and how should we start planning for the future today?
This webcast will go for 30 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q & A session, where the audience is welcome to ask questions.
Mike Tyson famously observed “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” The question is, will your Disaster Recovery plan survive that punch and save the day. In this presentation, Jim Whalen of Taneja Group and Dave Leclair of Unitrends will discuss cloud-based Disaster Recovery, how Recovery Assurance is an absolutely crucial component of any DR plan and why choosing a DRaaS provider needs to be on everyone’s short list of options when developing their Disaster Recovery plans.
