Nimble Storage Technologist Wen Yu and VMware Engineer Alton Yu provide a technical look at backup and recovery for VMware environments using Microsoft VSS.
Technical marketing engineer Michael McLaughlin describes the VDI reference architecture recently announced by Cisco, VMware, and Nimble Storage that supports 1,000 virtual desktops with only 3U of storage. The architecture uses Cisco UCS blade servers, VMware View, and VMware vSphere to provide a tested and preconfigured architecture for organizations looking to reduce their risk when deploying a VDI solution.
Jeff Winter, IS Director for the City of Hot Springs and Garland County, describes how his team virtualized their critical applications and established a replicated data protection scheme using Nimble Storage.
Jon Benson, DataCenter Systems Administrator for Syntricity, describes the evolution of his Nimble Storage deployment and plans for future growth. Syntricity software gives semiconductor manufacturers the ability to gather, manage, and analyze data from facilities around the world to improve yield, reduce product development cycles, and increase profits.
Daniel Kwong, senior IT analyst for Sacramento City College, describes how he researched and implemented a virtual desktop solution for the college. Daniel provides checklists and best practices for determining how to best fit a solution to your environment.
This on-demand webinar features special guest Mostafa Khalil, senior engineer at VMware and author of the book “Storage Implementation in vSphere 5.0.”
Mr. Khalil provides a highly-technical presentation, derived from his book. Questions are answered realtime during the presentation.
Wen Yu, Senior technical marketing engineer at Nimble Storage, provides a brief live demo at the end of the presentation, showing command line interaction with vSphere and Nimble arrays.
Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL) is Nimble Storage’s core architecture, engineered from the ground up to leverage solid state and disk drives.
In this recorded webinar from October 30, 2012, Nimble Storage Director of Storage Architecture Devin Hamilton provides a technical deep dive into how CASL works. Devin demonstrates how a hybrid approach is superior over an all-flash approach to storage for a broad range of mainstream applications.
CASL enables a scale-to-fit architecture that allows customers to scale their performance and/or capacity independently.
And most significantly, CASL enables capacity-efficient snapshots for backup which live on primary storage. No more backup software or devices or deduplication/hydration. Backups and restores are instantaneous and DR/failover is simple to setup with lower bandwidth network connections.
This is from Wen, @Wensteryu, Nimble Storage Technology Evangelist.
In this recording of a live webinar presented October 23, 2012, Wen describes best practices for protecting the datacenter with VMware SRM and Nimble Storage, and also provides a live demonstration of :
- SRA Discovery
- DR Test
- DR Failover
Wen includes some useful tools for customers, including a deployment checklist, and several “gotchas” that will save you time when deploying VMware SRM with Nimble Storage.
Mike McLaughlin, Nimble Storage Technical Marketing, whiteboards the joint Cisco UCS, Nimble Storage CS-Series and VMware View solution for a 1,000 seat virtual desktop deployment.
Radhika Krishnan, Nimble Storage Head of Solutions and Alliances, talks with Ashok Rajagopalan, Cisco Senior Product Manager Data Center Group, about the challenges of deploying VDI and the benefit of deploying a reference architecture using Cisco UCS server platform, Nimble Storage CS-Series arrays, and VMware View.
