App-Aware Data Management for Cloud-Scale All-Flash Storage
July 13, 2017 | 4:30 am ET

How Pure Storage and Rubrik work together to address many key challenges in the datacenter.

Pure Storage and Rubrik deliver granular RPOs for production workloads while eliminating the effects of VM application stun. For highly transactional applications in virtualised environments, we can ensure high performance without lengthy snapshot windows and application time-outs.

The integration significantly reduces the VM snapshot stun window while providing consistent point-in-time copy of VMs for reliable and quick recovery. Unlike traditional backup-vendor integrations with block-storage arrays, Rubrik’s direct integration with the Pure Storage FlashArray provides granular protection and file-level recovery for virtualised environments.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss how Pure Storage and Rubrik work together to address many key challenges in the datacenter, including:

  • Lengthy deployment and complex management
  • Lack of scalability and performance bottlenecks
  • Bloated footprint and lack of visibility and analytics

The State of Cloud Security
July 20, 2017 | 12:00 p.m. ET

Standards organizations like SNIA are in the vanguard of describing cloud concepts and usage, and (as you might expect) are leading on how and where security fits in this new world of dispersed and publicly stored and managed data. In this webcast, SNIA experts Eric Hibbard and Mark Carlson will take us through a discussion of existing cloud and emerging technologies (such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Analytics & Big Data, and so on) – and explain how we’re describing and solving the significant security concerns these technologies are creating. They will discuss emerging ISO/IEC standards, SLA frameworks and security and privacy certifications. This webcast will be of interest to managers and acquirers of cloud storage (whether internal or external), and developers of private and public cloud solutions who want to know more about security and privacy in the cloud.

Topics covered will include:

Summary of the standards developing organization (SDO) activities:

  • Work on cloud concepts, CDMI, an SLA framework, and cloud security & privacy 
    Securing the Cloud Supply Chain:
  • Outsourcing and cloud security; Cloud Certifications (FedRAMP, CSA STAR)
  • Emerging & Related Technologies: Virtualization/Containers, Federation, Big Data/Analytics in the Cloud, IoT and the Cloud
