The promise of object storage is simple: to enable customers to build a highly reliable, infinitely scalable and most efficient storage pool for all their unstructured data needs. For this to be true, object storage platforms need to meet all storage requirements: scalability, accessibility, efficiency, reliability and performance. DDN designed WOS360 to meet those requirements and allow customers to tune their systems to what is important for their data and applications.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- The 5 key object storage requirements
- The benefits of NoFS object storage architectures
- Choosing the right data protection for each object
- How to tune your storage infrastructure to meet all requirements without making compromises
- Leveraging the Open Compute Project for object storage

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
