Reducing Backup Windows and Increasing Performance When Data Reaches the Terabyte Range

  • Who: Mark McKinnon, Grand River Conservation Authority
  • When: Tuesday, April 22 at 2:00 p.m.
  • What: The Grand River Conservation Authority is one of the largest watershed management agencies in Canada, managing water and natural resources for nearly 40 municipalities and close to a million residents. When databases reached the terabyte range, the organization experienced difficulty meeting required 24-hour backup windows. GRCA had been through four purchasing cycles, including a disk-to-tape backup and a disk-to-disk-to-tape solution and still couldn't meet designated backup windows. After calculating a deficit of over $400,000 in productivity if one month's data was lost, they knew it was time to solve their backup and recovery problems, leading them to deploy a flash-optimized storage solution which allowed GRCA to reduce RPO from 1 day to 1 hour, but also reduce backup windows, eliminate tapes and store 6+ years of file shares.

Turning a High-wire Juggling Act into a Walk in the Park: Best Practices for Simple, Effective Storage Management

  • Who: Lavan Jeeva, KIPP Foundation
  • When: Thursday, April 24 at 3:05 p.m.
  • What: When your responsibilities as a hands-on IT professional span multiple layers of datacenter infrastructure and critical applications the last thing you need is to be constantly tied up in the often precarious act of manual storage performance, capacity and data protection management. Storage is undoubtedly the most critical layer of infrastructure for today's datacenter workloads. With the right storage solution, sizing, deployment, management, scaling and disaster recovery these workloads should be easily handled.

Everyone wants the rainbow - reduced IT costs, scalability, continuity, flexibility, manageability, and innovation. But in order to get to that collaboration rainbow, you need the cloud! In this presentation, we'll cover three areas: First - the rainbow of benefits from cloud collaboration. There are many different reasons why more and more companies and institutions are moving to the cloud. Benefits include: cost savings (reducing on-prem infrastructure, reducing data center foot print, reducing IT support costs), enabling growth (ensuring a highly available, highly scalable infrastructure), increasing employee access & engagement (by having collaboration tools that are usable and available globally regardless of location there will be an increased connectedness amongst teams and individuals that will help increase both efficiency and productivity.)
