How To Design High Performance, Cost Effective Splunk Storage
Thursday, January 12, 2017, 1:00 p.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT

Organizations have an analytics project right in front of them — log data created by the machines and systems they already have deployed. Analysis of this data can lead to better decisions, problem detection and tighter security. Splunk is a leading solution to perform analysis of log data, and as a result is very popular in the traditional enterprise. But Splunk does create storage challenges, and overcoming those challenges will speed the analysis and lower the cost of storing log data.

Splunk does an excellent job of managing data, moving data between tiers which it calls buckets. But assigning Splunk to data management tasks takes compute power away from the primary objective — rapid data analysis. In this live webinar Storage Switzerland and Tegile will discuss how the default Splunk architecture works today, what the challenges with that architecture are and how to design a storage architecture for Splunk that is both high performance and cost effective.

Using Storage Infrastructure as an Accelerator of DevOps Maturity
Thursday, January 19, 2017, 12:00 pm EST

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage is more capable than where we read and write data.

In this session they will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
