Siemon Delivers Educational Webinar on Data Center Storage Evolution
Watertown, CT — Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, is pleased to announce a new webinar that covers trends, technologies and standards surrounding today's vital storage area networks (SANs). This latest webinar titled, Data Center Storage Evolution, will be presented by Carrie Higbie, Siemon's Global Director of Data Center Solutions and Services, and will take place on October 2, 2014 at 1 p.m. EDT.
Data is growing at explosive rates in today's business and has become the most valuable corporate asset, challenging today's data center managers to effectively store and protect data while 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 center 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 center managers to understand the variety of storage architectures available, allowing them to make an informed choice depending on their specific needs.
"Storage solutions are plentiful, and there is no one size fits all for today's data centers," says Higbie. "While Fibre Channel remains the predominate SAN technology, Ethernet has some advantages such as speed, support for switched fabric topologies, interoperability and management. As a result, newer storage technologies like Fiber 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 Q&A portion for participants to interact with the presenter.
