Adaptive Flash Storage for SQL Server

Tuesday September 9, 11:00 AM Pacific Time

Nimble's flash storage systems eliminate storage tuning for database applications like SQL Server by caching hot data to flash SSD in real-time so it's ready when needed and not waiting on tier transition. Add to that Nimble's highly efficient snapshot and replication technology and you have a instantaneous backup solution that spans months versus days. In this webinar we'll cover the Nimble Storage architecture and the benefits it provides for SQL Server, including:

  • Self-tuning
  • Live upgrades
  • Non-disruptive scaling of performance and/or capacity


Extending Nimble Storage Snapshots with CommVault IntelliSnap

Tuesday September 16, 11:00 AM Pacific Time

Join this webinar to learn how CommVault Simpana® IntelliSnap™ leverages the efficiency of Nimble array-based snapshots to provide speedy recovery, eliminate scripting, and lower infrastructure costs. The joint solution provides:

  • Centralized management that allows IT admins to configure, manage, and monitor backup, and restore operations from a single console
  • Integrated catalog that allows indexing and tracking of snapshot copies across all forms of media
  • Application-aware, granular recoveries of files, objects, VMs, and volumes
  • Frequent recovery points irrespective of the volume of data to be protected
  • Support for long-term retention, compliance, and e-discovery


Adaptive Flash: An Introduction to Nimble Storage

Thursday September 18, 11:00 AM Pacific Time

A high-level look at the Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash platform, recently announced with the release of the CS700 array and all-flash expansion shelf.

Nimble Storage's Adaptive Flash platform dynamically and intelligently deploys storage resources to meet the growing demands of business-critical applications, and is the first storage solution to eliminate the flash performance and capacity tradeoff.


VMware VVols Integration Technical Deep Dive

Tuesday September 23, 11:00 AM Pacific Time

VMware first proposed Virtual Volumes (VVols) at VMworld in 2012 as a way to make storage more VM-centric – “...making the VMDK a first-class citizen in the storage world,” as their architect Cormac Hogan described it.

Application needs in a virtualized environment are on the rise – regardless of whether the application is mission-critical, business-critical, or development and test. The basic storage needs remain: availability, capacity, performance, and recoverability.

Nimble Storage technologist Wen Yu provides a technical look at VVols.

  • What problems do VVols solve?
  • How does it solve them?
  • Are all VVol implementations created equal?


Nimble Storage for Hyper-V Environments

Thursday September 25, 11:00 AM Pacific Time

Join this webinar to find out how Nimble Storage reduces storage costs and improves performance without sacrificing capacity for Hyper-V environments.

The presentation will provide a technical look at topics such as:

  • Microsoft’s introduction of Hyper-V in Windows Server 2008 and its evolution in 2012
  • Hyper-V Storage Architecture – Understand how Nimble storage can be used effectively for configuring Hyper-V
  • Hyper-V Live Migration – Understand how this will greatly reduce the amount of effort required to migrate servers due to maintenance, load balancing, or hardware consolidation
  • Implementing storage for fail-over clustering
  • Hyper-V DR architecture


Availability in the Modern Datacenter with Veeam

Thursday October 2, 11:00 AM Pacific Time

Bridging the Availability Gap
Achieving non-stop service and continuous protection has traditionally required a significant investment in fully redundant systems with instant failover capabilities. These kinds of investments could only be justified for a few applications, so the vast majority of workloads are served with lower performing, legacy backup solutions allowing recovery time objectives and recovery point objectives (RTO and RPO) of several hours or days.

Veeam® bridges this availability gap by leveraging the capabilities of the modern datacenter — including virtualization, new storage integration and cloud capabilities — to provide high availability for all business-critical applications.

Nimble Storage and Veeam® provide a wide range of capabilities that can help you tackle virtually any data protection scenario. Plus you get high-performance flash-accelerated storage that will weather any I/O storm.

Join this webinar to learn how the Nimble/Veeam combination provides:

  • Affordable high-performance
  • VM, file-level, and application-item recovery
  • Flexible retention and native tape support
  • Centralized management
