Siemon delivers educational webinar on data centre storage evolution

Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, has announced a new webinar that covers trends, technologies and standards surrounding today's vital storage area networks (SANs). This latest webinar entitled, Data Centre Storage Evolution, will be presented by Carrie Higbie, Siemon's global director of data centre solutions and services, and will take place on October 2, 2014 at 2000 AST.

Data is growing at explosive rates in today's business and has become the most valuable corporate asset, challenging today's data centre managers to effectively store and protect data whilst enabling fast, secure access. Big data and ever increasing data stores are increasing demands, giving way to new technologies and SAN designs using switched IP networks that provide increasing levels of manageability, interoperability and cost effectiveness. As 10 Gigabit Ethernet becomes increasingly popular for providing an open, standards-based data centre infrastructure to support multiple technologies, leveraging IP and Ethernet for storage is a potential progression that is driving evolving storage technologies. It's important for data centre managers to understand the variety of storage architectures available, allowing them to make an informed choice, depending upon their specific needs.

"Storage solutions are plentiful, and there is no one size that fits all for today's data centres," says Higbie. "Whilst fibre channel remains the predominant SAN technology, Ethernet has some advantages, such as speed, support for switched fabric topologies, interoperability and management. As a result, newer storage technologies like fibre channel over Ethernet and SCSI over IP are worth examining."

In addition to examining the evolution of storage technologies and evolving standards, this webinar will also provide a question and answer session for participants to interact with the presenter.
