New Approaches To Disaster Recovery: Are You Prepared?

Originally Broadcast: Dec 04, 2008

Overview:

There are a number of different disaster recovery (DR) solutions available today, so it is incumbent upon IT storage managers to select an approach which is best suited to their requirements.  Issues that need to be considered include the backup window, recovery point objective (RPO), and recovery time objective (RTO).  In this webcast, we’ll describe and compare the pros and cons of various approaches to DR, including two common approaches – one based on enterprise backup software combined with a data de-duplicating virtual tape library (VTL) and an approach  based on continuous data protection (CDP) technology.

Disk Archiving for the 21st Century - New Strategies & Solutions to Improve Storage ROI

Originally Broadcast: Nov 06, 2008

Overview:

With data growth rates in the 50% - 100% range for most enterprises today and IT budgets declining, it's clear that legacy approaches to managing storage capacity growth need to be rethought.  The fact that, for most enterprises, the performance requirements of 70% to 90% of the data currently sitting on expensive primary storage can be met much more cost-effectively with an active archival storage platform provides an opportunity to drastically cut the average blended $/GB most organizations are paying to house all their storage (primary and secondary).  The customer problem is how to cost-effectively manage explosive data growth over time horizons on the order of decades while at the same time meeting the demands of new regulatory requirements, such as e-discovery. 

This session will present new archiving strategies and solutions that answer the needs of 21st century businesses.  It will look at why yesterday's technologies, such as tape or tiered storage devices, fail to address both long term archiving requirements and cost efficiencies required by today's enterprises. Presenters will include case studies to demonstrate the real business benefits and cost savings enterprise can achieve by adopting a 21st century data archiving strategy.

The Petabytes are Coming: Will Your Content Repository Scale?

Originally Broadcast: Oct 30, 2008

Overview:

An explosion of user-generated content has dramatically shifted the dynamics and economics of storage. Faced with terabyte- and petabyte-sized mountains of unstructured data, a broad range of industries including Digital Media, Web 2.0 and traditional enterprises are clamoring for fundamentally different approaches to their extreme storage needs. Whether they are hosting video, images, music, data or documents, these businesses need storage systems that can scale, are easy to use and manage, and break new ground in terms of affordability. For many of these companies, data is their business.

Join this webcast as Pete Brey of HP reviews how HP is helping customers build next-generation file serving environments that scale to meet ever-changing storage demands. Pete will preview the soon-to-be-released HP StorageWorks 9100 Extreme Data Storage System. He'll explain how this turnkey platform targets the specific requirements of petabyte-scale deployments with independent performance and capacity scaling and simplified management, at a fraction of the cost of traditional enterprise class storage. Pete will also provide real-world examples of how companies can deploy ExDS to sustain their current storage needs while better positioning for growth.

Clustered File Storage: What to Look For

Originally Broadcast: Jul 24, 2008

Overview:

Unstructured data is growing exponentially and the reasons for that are well known. However, how an enterprise should manage this data and harness its value is far from well known. NAS has been around for almost two decades, but traditional architectures are straining under the sheer weight of this data. This webcast will look at what clustered file storage is and how it is different from traditional file storage. We will discuss how it can contain the data tsunami. Then we will look at various factors that make one type of clustered file storage stand out and another one just be an incremental improvement over traditional storage.

Optimizing Data Efficiency with Windows File Server Consolidation

Originally Broadcast: Jul 10, 2008

Overview:

A popular and effective approach to managing the increasing demand for storage has been to host networked storage on Windows file servers. The result is Windows file server sprawl. This rampant proliferation of file servers makes inexpensive systems expensive because of wasted capacity, low utilization rates and sub-optimal availability. Consolidating Windows file servers and storage devices establishes a highly available and independently scalable environment while substantially reducing management and infrastructure costs.

Watch this webcast to learn about the benefits of consolidating Windows file services using next-generation Scalable NAS, including:

  • Flexibility to reaollocate resources to meet changing business needs
  • Integrated high availability with no additional cost
  • Planning for painless future storage growth
  • Independently scalable file serving performance and capacity
