3 Reasons to Build a Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure
Available On demand

Economic conditions over the past decade have forced businesses to consider minimizing their data footprints in order to cut their enterprise server spend by more than $90 billion. However, with advances in enterprise technology and applications, data growth has been exponential. More than 1 quintillion bytes of data have been created within the last 2 years alone and data protection experts have been asked to do more with less.

In this webinar, discover how software-defined converged data management platform and scale-out cloud storage from Rubrik and Cloudian, help data protection experts do more with less while ensuring datacenter admins meet their SLAs.

Key topics to cover:

  • Scale-out Storage
  • TCO / Economics of the datacenter
  • S3 API: Data protection between Rubrik, Cloudian and Amazon S3
  • Advantages of cost savings of intelligent data recovery from the cloud
  • On-premise software-defined storage (SDS)

Intro to Containers, Container Storage Challenges and Docker
Thursday, October 6, 2016, 1:00 pm EDT

Containers are the latest in what are new and innovative ways of packaging, managing and deploying distributed applications. In this webcast, we’ll introduce the concept of containers; what they are and the advantages they bring illustrated by use cases, why you might want to consider them as an app deployment model, and how they differ from VMs or bare metal deployments.

We’ll follow up with a look at what is required from a storage perspective when using Docker, one of the leading systems that provides a lightweight, open and secure environment for the deployment of containers. Finally, we’ll round out our Docker introduction by presenting the takeaways from DockerCon, an industry event for makers and operators of distributed applications built on Docker, that took place in Seattle in June of this year.

Join us for this discussion on:

  • Application deployment history
  • Containers vs. virtual machines vs. bare metal
  • Factors driving containers and common use cases
  • Storage ecosystem and features
  • Container storage table stakes
  • Introduction to Docker
  • Key takeaways from DockerCon 2016

The Consequences of Infinite Storage Bandwidth
Tuesday, October 4, 2016, 12:00 p.m. EDT

Overall increases in CPU and DRAM processing power are falling behind the massive acceleration in available storage and network bandwidth.Storage management services are emerging as a serious bottleneck. What does this imply for the datacenter of the future? How will it affect the physical network and storage topologies? And how will storage software need to change to meet these new realities?
