- What is hyper-converged?
- How did this new type of solution come to be developed, and why is it important?
- What are customers using it for and why?
- Are their architectural limitations and what can be done about them?
Gridstore Founder and CTO, Kelly Murphy will join Arun to discuss Gridstore’s new Hyper-Converged Appliance purpose built for Windows environments, and how Gridstore solves the 5 biggest challenges of existing hyper-converged solutions. Customers looking at VDI or Hyper-V deployments and/or in State & Local gov’t or Educational institutions will find this of particular interest.
Big data doesn't have to be slow. Now that you have identified and possibly even built functional Hadoop based big data applications that could deliver big value to your organizations, how can you easily make them work at operational speeds in production? Come listen in as Taneja Group Sr. Analyst Mike Matchett interviews Nikita Ivanov, CTO of GridGain, on why in-memory solutions for Hadoop can make all the difference for big data success. We'll explore what they do and how they work to speed up processing, how easy or hard they are to deploy and get working in the data center, and what the net impact can be. We'll also hope to talk about commercial vs. open source in the big data space, and what that means for the analytical community at large.
What are best practices for using your business's Big Data application? In this expert roundtable, we'll dig deep into that question, discussing issues like how to focus your Big Data query, how to deal with common Big Data challenges, and the importance of human judgment Big Data analysis.

Join us for this informative 60 minute roundtable as we discuss how organizations should measure/compare flash solutions. Is all-flash suitable for all workloads or is a hybrid approach enough? Is a scale-out flash approach superior? Hear from the following panelists:
EMC: Josh Goldstein, VP Marketing & Product Management - XtremIO
HP: Ivan Iannaccone, Product Manager - HP 3PAR
Kaminario: Ritu Jyoti, Chief Product Officer
Pure Storage: Vaughn Stewart, Chief Evangelist
Internet of Things (IoT) is a hot trend in today’s economy of connected devices. Every high-tech device in the data center industry – storage, servers, switches, application software, or any appliance – generates copius amounts of machine data that can be analyzed to help the manufacturer gain operational and strategic insights. These insights assist in reducing costs to support customers by lowering mean time to resolution (MTTR) per case. They also enable manufacturers to build and sell specific value add services to their customers with the objective of being proactive, predictive and prescriptive in front of their top enterprise accounts. Finally, deep insights can be gleaned off this kind of machine data analytics, if done the right way, to funnel strategic information onto future product roadmaps. All of these benefits are very quantifiable if there is a solution like Glassbeam in place in such markets.
This webinar will discuss the right elements of such a solution, lay out the foundation of ROI with specific benefits, and discuss a case study with a Fortune 100 account of Glassbeam.
The performance of databases often slows as data and business grows, users find new and demanding ways to leverage applications, and those applications mature and expand in functionality. Whenever a key database slows down, SQL or NoSQL, the business damage can be widespread and it usually becomes a high priority effort to remediate.
At Taneja Group we’ve noted 5 major ways that IT operations can improve database performance, including a couple of quick and ready ideas that impose little risk or cost. In this 30 minute webcast, we'll look at why IT operations often gets the responsibility for database performance, and the IT-centric options they can pursue.
