Need for Speed: Drastically Accelerate Virtualization with All Flash Storage
Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014, 11:00 a.m. CT
Are your VMs plagued by storage related performance issues? Don’t put up with it! Flash storage can make virtualization performance dramatically faster and more efficient.
However, traditionally all-flash storage solutions have been too expensive, too complex, and too fragile for wide-spread deployment. Not anymore! Pure Storage's unique approach to storage resolves those problems and our all-flash systems provide high performance, reliable, and incredibly efficient storage at a price at or below that of traditional spinning disk.
Join this webinar to learn more about how all-flash storage can accelerate your virtualization projects and drive exceptional experiences for users and administrators while reducing virtualization deployment costs.

DH2i to Expose SQL Server Licensing Misconceptions You Can't Afford
Wednesday, July 23, 2014, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. EST
If you've already virtualized some - or all - of your Microsoft SQL Server environment, you've gained certain physical consolidation and management advantages. But, now you're locked into Microsoft's view of what you should be able to do with your newfound capabilities. And, your budget.
Wouldn't it be great if you could save significant data center dollars on your ever-growing Microsoft licensing bill? And, do so regardless of your current choice of SQL Server versions and licensing-either unlimited or per-vCPU?
Join this webinar to learn how any virtualized SQL Server environment can enjoy:
- Application-level high availability (HA) and easy multi-subnet disaster recovery (DR) - even with Standard edition
- Fewer OS images to manage, update and license
- Even higher mobility without the 29% overhead of Software Assurance
Break Free From Old School Dedupe
Wednesday, July 30, 2014, 11:00 a.m. PDT
Deduplication is proven technology in the datacenter. It has evolved over the years and there are a lot of choices when using deduplication, from where and how to dedupe to what type of deduplication or data reduction approach is best for your environment. The right approach should be based on the data types being protected, and the workflows associated with that data.
Implementing a modern data protection workflow with an intelligent, simple and powerful deduplication strategy can provide great benefits, such as:
- Maximizing data reduction and network savings
- Improving backup and restore times
- Protecting data across sites and in the cloud
- Increasing IT staff productivity
- Scaling on your terms
- Providing extra layers of security
Thursday, July 31, 11:00 a.m. PDT
An in-depth look at Nimble Storage's Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL) architecture. CASL leverages the read performance of flash and the sequential write performance of disk to provide affordable and adaptive high performance and capacity. With CASL, performance is no longer tied to spindle count, it is CPU-defined. Join this webinar to get technical and ask questions.
Nimble Storage Scale-Out
Tuesday, August 5, 11:00 a.m. PDT
Learn how Nimble Storage's scale-out architecture makes it easy to scale capacity and performance beyond the physical limitations of a single array. Any combination of Nimble Storage hybrid arrays can be seamlessly configured into a storage cluster, without complicating storage management by creating additional silos or breaking the budget with forklift upgrades.
Adaptive Flash: An Introduction to Nimble Storage
Tuesday, August 12, 11:00 a.m. PDT
