If you don't know what data is in your file servers, email and collaboration systems - who owns and has access to what, what data is "hot" versus "cold", or how things are classified - then you are missing easy opportunities to reduce storage costs!
We know big data is growing and represents a huge opportunity to mine competitive business value. Some even propose landing all corporate data first in a big data lake to make it available for multiple downstream uses. And soon, all your data could be thought of as big data. But what happens with enterprise storage? How do we protect that big data and apply corporate storage governance? How do support storage workflows on the backend? In this panel, we'll discuss some of the hottest trends and newest solutions for storing, protecting, and leveraging big data in the corporate IT data center.

*Anant Chintamaneni, BlueData, Vice President of Products
*Vincent Hsu, IBM, Fellow and Storage CTO

Join us for this informative 60 minute roundtable as we discuss how flash is helping data centers become faster and far more efficient. This panel follows our previous all-flash panel with a whole new round of all-flash storage vendors. Some of the questions we'll be asking include: Is all-flash suitable for all workloads or is a hybrid approach enough? Is a scale-out flash approach superior? Can all-flash be as cost-effective as spinning disk?
Hear from the following industry experts:
*Kevin Powell, Business Line Program Director, IBM FlashSystem
*Srinath Alapati, Director, Flash, NetApp
*Eric Herzog, CMO & SVP of Alliances, Violin Memory
*Mike Matchett, Senior Analyst, Taneja Group
The storage management challenges with hybrid clouds derive from their distributed architecture and disparate hosting that must be viewed as a single, seamless, end-to-end system. Successful implementation of hybrid cloud storage requires having the right IT infrastructure and management solution that provides key brokering functionality across mixed storage environments.
Join us on this webinar to gain critical insight and understanding of the essential storage resource management capabilities of OnCommand Insight and how it moves beyond the basics to:
•Provide end-to-end visibility of storage resources
•Understand current workloads and determine if they can be supported cloud deployments
•Optimize the storage infrastructure
•Analyze risks, minimize downtime, and speed cloud deployment
•Mike Matchett, Senior Analyst & Consultant; Taneja Group
•Donald Bourque, Product Mgt. TME, OnCommand Insight; NetApp
•David Boland, Senior Product Marketing Manager; NetApp
Come listen in as Taneja Group Sr. Analyst Mike Matchett explores the rapidly expanding world of Software Defined Storage with a panel of the hottest SDS vendors in the market. These panelists will no doubt come out swinging with their best definitions of Software Defined - we already know they don't see eye-to-eye. What does a true SDS solution need to offer, and how are they different from each other? How can SDS change the datacenter landscape? Is SDS a pre-req for the SDDC or hybrid cloud? Do we need SDS just to stay competitive as data storage needs continue to grow? Where should you start deploying SDS, or is it mature enough to even start today? Bring your best SDS questions for these panelists as we search for some Software Defined answers.
