Sanbolic to Discuss How to Enable Enterprise Scale-Out Storage Using Server-Side Flash

WALTHAM, Mass., Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- When: Wednesday, December 5, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Eastern TimeSanbolic Webinar: Step-by-Step Installation and Creation of Highly Available (HA), Scalable Shared Storage with Melio and Citrix PVS This webinar will walk attendees through the installation of Sanbolic's Melio(TM) data management software, and the creation of highly available (HA) and scalable shared storage that enables and extends the capabilities of Citrix Provisioning Services (PVS). Attendees will learn how with Melio shared storage hosting XenApp and XenDesktop image files (vDisks), administrators can create, manage, deliver and maintain vDisks for HA and load balancing, without the challenges typically introduced by other storage options such as replication, files shares or proprietary hardware-based file serving appliances. How to achieve additional benefits, such as reliable vDisk protection, improved desktop and server performance, and dynamic infrastructure scale to support environments comprised of hundreds of XenApp Servers and thousands of XenDesktops, will also be explained. If you are about to begin a XenApp or XenDesktop pilot, or are moving from pilot to production, this is a webinar you don't want to miss! When: Wednesday, December 12, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Eastern TimeSanbolic Webinar: Simplify Your Approach to Managing Highly Available (HA) Microsoft SQL Server Clusters with Melio IT organizations have become heavily dependent on Microsoft SQL Server across a broad range of applications, causing database consolidation to become become both a major undertaking and a high priority. Unfortunately, conventional consolidation and high availability solutions are painful and require significant amounts of underutilized hardware and overwhelming management costs. In this webinar, learn how Sanbolic's Melio eliminates storage management complexity in highly available clustered SQL Server deployments by providing active-active access to a pool of shared storage resources, thus simplifying the task of efficiently storing and protecting data, while providing features like database-level quality of service (QoS) to manage performance.

When: Wednesday, December 19, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time Joint Sanbolic and Fusion-io Webinar: Enabling Enterprise Scale-out Storage using Fusion-io Server-Side FlashPresenters: David Dupuis, Enterprise Solutions Manager, Sanbolic; and Tom Scribner, Senior Systems Engineer, Fusion-io This webinar will focus on application performance, availability, and scalability using Fusion-io server side flash and Sanbolic's distributed data management platform, Melio. Leveraging Fusion-io and Melio's unique features and extensive capabilities, organizations can introduce flash storage into their legacy storage infrastructure to improve application performance, while simultaneously enhancing the availability and scalability of their business-critical applications such as Microsoft SQL Server. Attendees will learn how to effectively utilize Melio in pure flash and mixed environments (spinning disk and flash) to create flexible, highly available pools of shared storage that reduce data and storage administration costs and enhance application performance in order to achieve the greatest value from the applications driving their organization's productivity and profitability.
