Introduction to Nimble Storage
Tuesday January 13, 11:00AM PT | 2:00PM ET

Learn how Nimble Storage's Adaptive Flash platform dynamically and intelligently deploys storage resources to meet the growing demands of business-critical applications, and is the first storage solution to eliminate the tradeoff between flash performance and affordable capacity.

Adaptive Flash combines Nimble's CASL architecture, and InfoSight, the company's groundbreaking data sciences-based approach to the storage lifecycle.

  • CASL is a CPU-driven architecture which scales performance and capacity seamlessly and independently. No longer is performance tied to spindle count.
  • CASL coalesces random reads into sequential writes to disk, with up to twice the performance of MLC flash drives.
  • InfoSight leverages the power of deep data analytics to provide customers precise guidance on the optimal approach to scaling flash, CPU, and capacity around changing application needs, while ensuring peak storage health.

Getting the Most Out of Your Datacenter
Thursday, Jan 15, 2015 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM EST 

Learn what new trends in the industry can revolutionize your datacenter and how you can vastly improve your overall performance and ROI. 

  • Addressing Storage Hardware Resiliency and Optimized Efficiency: Storage hardware is expected to fail but what if there was a way to extend its life? How can you get more usable capacity and performance out of your storage platform? Find out what the underlying causes of hardware failures and inefficient storage utilization are and how to address them. 
  • Software to Enhance Storage Features: Software defined storage is the future for datacenters. Learn methodologies for abstracting the physical storage from the logical presentation. This allows unlike storage vendors to work together and creates a great flexibility for upgrades and migrations. 
  • Improving ROI: Learn how to lower overall capital and operating expenditures by only buying storage features once where you need them, when you need them.

Why Big Data must become a First-Class Citizen: Storage for big data

Big Data is moving from the tried to the proven...from the science experiment to the data center.  As new analytic workloads are deployed leveraging new classes of data, a more complex data architecture starts to emerge.  In the past, the typical big data application was defined as social media analytics performed as a one-off workload.  Today, other new applications beyond social media such as unlocking internal big data, as well as data from the "internet of things" are seen as high value.  What's more, successful organizations are integrating this data to existing core business processes.  This creates a data architecture and storage challenge beyond basic server-based storage solutions. 

During this webinar, you'll hear from Ovum's Principal Analyst Tony Baer as he provides the case as to why big data and new workloads are creating new storage challenges, and why enterprises must think thru a data strategy.  Joining Tony will be Chris Algozzine, Director or Worldwide Product Marketing for IBM Storage.  Chris will walk us thru the key storage capabilities and platforms needed to deploy a successful data strategy.
