Flash-Accelerated Storage for MS SQL Server
Thursday, April 10, 2014, 11:00 a.m. GMT

Nimble's flash-accelerated storage systems eliminate storage tuning for database applications like SQL Server by caching hot data to flash SSD in real-time so it's ready when needed and not waiting on tier transition. Add to that Nimble's highly efficient snapshot and replication technology and you have a instantaneous backup solution that spans months versus days. In this webinar we'll cover the Nimble Storage architecture and the benefits it provides for SQL Server, including:

  • Self-tuning
  • Live upgrades
  • Non-disruptive scaling of performance and/or capacity

Trends in BioIT Data Management & Storage
Tuesday, April 16, 2014, 1:00 p.m. EST

As research becomes less expensive through the commoditization of instruments, the biosciences are seeing data volume explode. With that, new challenges develop in data storage. Getting an early grip on managing that data and creating an environment that supports researcher access to information will make adaptation easier. This session will talk about the trends and will provide tips and recommendations for overcoming data deluge.

In this webinar, you will learn: 

  • The core problem influencing bio-IT storage and data management efforts
  • Reason not to panic and a few reasons where a little panic may be necessary
  • Must-haves and nice-to-haves when it comes to storage
  • Where cloud storage may help
  • How to separate capacity from performance in an science infrastructure

Enabling High Performance Virtualisation and Affordable VDI
Thursday, April 29, 2014, 11:00 a.m. GMT

Nimble Storage hybrid arrays are ideally suited for virtual desktop (VDI) environments. The live webinar will cover how a flexible mix of flash and disk storage, Nimble Storage systems provide the following benefits for VDI environments:

  • Adaptive Performance: Maintain a consistent user experience regardless of activity spikes, boot storms, or anti-virus scans.
  • Integrated Data Protection: Capacity-efficient snapshots eliminate backup windows and provide WAN-efficient replication for DR and failover.
  • Application-Consistent Management: Pre-validated VDI reference architectures with VMware, Citrix, and Cisco reduce risk and accelerate deployments.
