Solid State Disk (SSD) technology is one of the hottest IT areas in 2012. The promise to eliminate storage IO bottlenecks and increase application performance, enable server virtualization, enable data center growth, and reduce IT costs has prompted 83% of all IT departments to consider SSD. But those planning an SSD deployment face a variety of deployment choices. Moreover, choosing poorly can yield large expense, disruption to existing IT environments, and a complex new set of storage management tasks.
Join Brian Garrett, Vice President at the Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. and Peter Velikin from VeloBit, Inc. for a comprehensive overview of the key considerations you must make when building your SSD strategy. This webinar is intended to help IT executives make wise decisions. You will see first-hand research on the actual vs. perceived benefits organizations realized from deploying SSD, applications that drove SSD adoption, and the challenges IT organizations experienced when deploying SSD. You will learn how to evaluate the various SSD technologies and deployment options, how to identify the best solution for your application, and how to seamlessly and cost-effectively deploy SSD in your IT environment.
Who should watch:
IT Executives, Systems Engineers, Database Administrators, Storage Managers, Solution Architects, anyone interested in learning how to successfully deploy SSD in the enterprise
