Add to Calendar Getting to understand your IT environment with Dell DPACK

25 May 11 am PT / 2 pm ET

Host: Alex Bykovskyi, Solutions Architect, StarWind

Dell Performance Analysis Collection Kit is a platform- and hardware-agnostic software provided free of charge allowing to evaluate the opportunities of the IT environment for virtualization. The tool estimates such core characteristics as disk IO, throughput, capacity and memory utilization and provides in-depth individual server report helping IT administrators to understand the environment and analyze existing bottlenecks or an aggregation of resource needs across disparate servers with a simulation of those workloads if consolidated to shared resources. Ultimately, Dell DPACK provides the needed information for mission critical IT decisions, be it moving to a shared platform or optimizing the current environment for further expansion.

Watch our Tap Room meeting to learn how to monitor and analyze your environment properly with Dell DPACK.

Building a high-performing and fault-tolerant cluster with StarWind Grid Architecture

18 May 11 am PT / 2 pm ET

Host: Bogdan Savchenko, Solutions Engineer, StarWind

StarWind takes advantage of the “grid architecture” in its solutions, allowing to build a highly-fault-tolerant cluster while maintaining the principle of “data locality” to maximize performance. A cluster based on such topology, where a number of nodes are connected into a grid, delivers a high rate of resiliency and stays operational even after multiple nodes go down, whereas typical N+1 or N+2 systems can hardly withstand 1/3 nodes failure. The "grid architecture" allows creating a highly redundant and high-performing cluster while providing better scalability of the system.

Watch our Tap Room meeting to learn about the benefits that StarWind Grid Architecture brings to your IT infrastructure.

The recorded webinar will be available soon


Useful tips for setting up Microsoft Active Directory Domain Controllers

11 May 11 am PT / 2 pm ET

Host: Alexey Khorolets, Pre-sales Engineer, StarWind

Microsoft Active Directory serves to store, organize and manage network resources, such as users, devices, computers and services, in a secure and logical structure, where domain controllers are the server computers responsible for security authentication requests within a Windows domain. Every domain in your Active Directory requires at least two functioning domain controllers to provide a fault-tolerant environment. Additionally, to avoid problems with domain controllers they should be located on different servers.

Converged & Hyperconverged EcoCast

12 April 10 am PT / 1 pm ET

Speaker: Max Kolomyeytsev, Director of Product Management, StarWind

StarWind reveals the ultimate performance of RDMA-capable tech at EcoСast by ActualTech Media
In this EcoСast webinar from ActualTech Media, Max Kolomyeytsev, Director of Product Management at StarWind discusses the benefits of NVMe and RDMA-capable technologies and how they serve to reach ultra-performance in the HyperConverged Appliance. He shows the actual performance changes the innovation brings to the IT-infrastructure, and how it is applied in real life conditions. The latest version of StarWind HyperConverged Appliance delivers affordable RDMA technology, including protocols and SSD, to small & medium sized companies, ROBO and SOHO. Max talks about the results of the performance tests by StarWind engineers comparing regular iSCSI and iSER protocols and clearly showing the advantage of RDMA-capable iSER over the regular iSCSI uplink.

Get unprecedented resiliency of IT infrastructure with StarWind HyperConverged Appliance

22 February, 12:45-1:10 pm ET

Speaker: Max Kolomyeytsev, Director of Product Management, StarWind

Universally accepted redundancy levels are clearly insufficient for environments running multiple independent workloads. Applications crucial for your business like Databases or ERP systems demand the highest possible uptime and resiliency which goes beyond standard protection against 1 node or 1 disk failure. StarWind HyperConverged Appliance combines Local Reconstruction Codes, Replication and Grid Architecture to give you an immense extent of fault tolerance while delivering sustained high performance. It easily withstands multiple disk or even node failures without disrupting the work of the whole infrastructure. In the event of a failure applications are automatically recovered to working disks or nodes of the cluster. With StarWind HCA your applications remain resilient and operational even if more than 50% of the cluster nodes go down.
