2017 Enterprise Storage: Evaluate 6 Top Solutions Back-to-Back
April 26, 2017 | 12:00 PM EDT

If you thought the storage market of the past few years was a wild ride, you might want to buckle up! Today's IT pros are poised to see revolutions in storage that will make the last few years look like we were standing still!

Even though today's storage market offers solutions that have largely solved even the most stubborn performance problems, companies still want more. These wants aren't unreasonable. Bigger data sets, tighter budgets, and new business needs are continuing to drive organizations to rethink how they handle storage, whether that's on-premises or in the cloud.

Fortunately, innovation in the storage market continues in high gear, with a variety of solutions from which to choose. Do you need "cheap and deep" for archival purposes? Check. Do you need a solution that provides buckets of IOPS and blazing throughput? Check. Do you need a solution that gives you an object store that can scale to practically unlimited levels? Check. Do you need a software-only solution? Do you need a hardware appliance? Do you need cloud storage? Check, check, and check.

But, how do you evaluate all of these options? On April 26th, 2017, ActualTech Media will host its Enterprise Storage MegaCast. This is your opportunity to consider solutions from at least six storage innovators, each with a unique story to tell. This event is your opportunity to gain deep insight into the modern storage market all in a single afternoon.

Improve the performance of your IT by virtualising your storage
May 9, September 26, and November 7, 2017 | 11:00 a.m.

With vSAN, VMware’s software-defined storage solution, you can improve storage performance and functionality for your organisation – all while avoiding the cost of replacing the physical storage area network (SAN)

With 1 in 5 organisations set to review their storage options in 2017, considerations around cloud strategy and cost reduction are now equally as important as the traditional parameters of how much storage and what performance.

Join Phoenix Software for a one-hour webinar during the course of which we discuss the option to move towards a hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) bringing together storage and compute. Running on industry-standard x86 servers, HCI enables a simple, building-block architecture with scale-out capabilities that can help you improve data centre efficiency, increase performance and importantly dramatically reduce costs.

So, with real-life examples from Phoenix Software customers who are already benefitting from HCI technologies such as VMware vSAN, our webinar will showcase how HCI has enabled them to improve IT responsiveness and rein in spending across the data centre.

Why consider a hyper-converged infrastructure?

With VMware HCI, you can:

  • Reduce total cost of ownership by 50% compared to legacy infrastructure with a single, tightly integrated software stack that is radically simple to deploy and manage
  • Accelerate responsiveness with non-disruptive, one-click policy changes and linear, granular scale-up or scale-out capabilities
  • Enable business for today and tomorrow with the ability to rapidly adopt a next-generation storage solution while embracing an easy path to a public/hybrid cloud solution with cross-cloud capability

In this webinar, experts in the field of healthcare IoT will discuss:

  • The benefits of IoT in healthcare
  • Example use cases demonstrating this innovation
  • How to implement connected solutions to power innovation
  • How data flow between devices, to the cloud, and to enterprise systems can be achieved
  • How Kore powers mHealth Solutions

Sign up for this 60-minute webinar today and gain valuable insights into building an effective IoT strategy within healthcare
