Storage in a Software-Defined World

The data center of yesterday is quickly going out of fashion, with its siloed, multi-vendored storage environments that ensure storage is costly, inefficient and difficult to manage. Software-defined storage promises to be simple, flexible and ready for the data demands of tomorrow. 

But does software-defined really amount to a new era of storage, or will it simply introduce different kinds of vendor lock-in and management complexity? Tune into this roundtable to hear from storage and infrastructure experts on software-defined storage, its place in the industry, and what’s on the horizon.

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.

Make the Elephant Fly: How to make Hadoop 10x faster in 10 minutes

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.
