Custom webinar with Pliops

Flash devices such as solid-state drives (SSDs) have increased in size to the point where an individual device can easily support multiple virtual machines. The best way to take advantage of these capabilities is to utilize these latest SSDs as part of a software-defined storage architecture, where resources can be put together and taken apart as workloads demand. Join our industry experts to explore best practices for SSD-based software defined architectures.

Willie Sutton was once attributed (incorrectly) to have said that “people rob banks because that is where the money is”. The same is true of cybercriminals, which is why regulatory agencies continue to ratchet up the requirements for resilience in the face of cyber threats. The combination of regulatory frameworks and data protection schemes such as the CBEST, PCI DSS, EU-GDPR and UK-GDPR, NIST 800-53, and others means that the cybersecurity regulatory and compliance workload has increased for most businesses in the financial services (FS) sector. Join our panel of experts as they discuss how to streamline the ever-increasing cybersecurity regulatory and compliance workloads that organizations in the FS sector are facing.

One field that has recently seen a massive influx of technology is healthcare, and in particular medical imaging. T5oday, the technologies being applied to medical imaging (and healthcare more generally) include artificial intelligence, GPGPU computing, petabyte-scale storage, and latest-generation networking technologies. Given the size of imaging databases, the storage architecture can have the largest impact on overall performance. This webinar will explore the various storage architectures and data management tools necessary to keep up with the growth in high-resolution imagery for medical and biological studies.

The increases in performance that Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe™) solid-state drives (SSDs) and NVMe over Fabric (NVMe-oF) offers over SCSI-based storage and storage networking protocols are well known. However, the adoption of NVMe-oF is still in its early days. Join industry storage networking experts as they discuss their view on the best applications and approaches for NVMe-oF based storage solutions.

Extended Detection and Response (xDR) is one of the newest trends in cybersecurity that promises to provide a holistic approach to cybersecurity. Nearly every major cybersecurity vendor has or is promising xDR capabilities in their latest tool suites. As with most new trends, the actual value delivered is often a function of how the tool is utilized in conjunction with other tools and practices in the Security Operations Center (SOC). Join our panel of leading experts on xDR to explore the capabilities of these tools as a part of the larger cybersecurity technology stack.

The number of tools available to accelerate workloads in both the cloud and in on-premises datacenters has never been larger than it is now. Today, the tools available include GPUs, SSDs with data-steering and computational capabilities, “smart-NICS” that can manage complex data routing capabilities, and CXL-enabled pooled/tiered/extended memory architectures that improve scale and performance. Our panel of experts will explore these various technologies, and how to best utilize them in next-generation datacenter architectures.

Attack surface management (ASM) is a relatively new concept for the continuous discovery, monitoring, and remediation of an organization’s cybersecurity vulnerabilities to external threats. Yet while the majority of vendors agree on the concept of ASM, the implementations of ASM differ widely from one company to another. Join our experts as they discuss what features are necessary to have an effective ASM product, and why they are important.

How can you effectively monitor the security of your data, especially if you are using cloud storage resources for all or part of your data storage? While cloud data storage providers are themselves secure, companies are effectively on their own when it comes to securing data on their platforms. What is the best way to do this? What tools do the cloud providers available? What third-party tools can you utilize on their platforms? And how do you recover from ransomware attacks? In this webinar, leading experts showcase tools, approaches, and evolving opportunities to protect your data.

The cloud literally opens up a number of opportunities for companies to rapidly scale up and scale down compute resources, network bandwidth, and storage capacity. However, securing the cloud is a very different matter than securing on-premises datacenters, and the fact that Amazon, Microsoft, or Google are running the virtual datacenter is not in itself a guarantee of security. Join our panel of cloud cybersecurity experts in exploring the emerging trends in securing cloud resource and workloads as we discuss best practices for resilient cloud cybersecurity architectures.

The Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP) was initiated in 2011 to apply the benefits of open source and open collaboration to hardware, with the goal of bringing the benefits of “cloud-scale” computing to all datacenter operators. OCP has produced a number of novel approaches to enable compute-at-scale  for on-premises datacenters. Please join us and our panel to discuss some of the latest developments announced at the 2023 OCP Summit, and how these capabilities can be utilized in your datacenter architecture

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) platforms are certainly not for everyone. In most cases, SIEMs tend to be utilized by large companies that can support A SIEM’s need for data, the staff expertise required, and the complexity of setting it up and operating it. However, for organizations with the right use case(s) and the abilities to support them, SIEMs can provide critical strategic value. Join some of the leading experts in the industry as they discuss situations where a SIEM can provide great value to an organization.

Which is better for HPC storage: local storage, large arrays, data lakes, or clustered file systems? HPC systems can have hundreds or thousands of nodes, and often contain tens of thousands of GPGPUs. While InfiniBand is still the leading fabric for HPC, Ethernet is also gaining more interest as an option. In this webinar, leading enterprise storage experts provide an analysis of each of these options, as well as exploring whether it is worthwhile for your organization to integrate HPC storage with the rest of your enterprise storage.

A look back at the year and predictions for 2024. Where do we go from here? What is/was hot and what is/was not? Relax and enjoy a look back, and a look forward, with our panel of leading enterprise storage experts
