Whether an organization chooses a cloud for general business needs or a highly tailored workload, the spectrum of offerings and configurations can be overwhelming. To help you navigate the various cloud options available today, we're breaking down your options, exploring pros and cons, and sharing ways to keep your options open and your business agile as you execute your cloud strategy.
Researchers in academic labs and commercial R&D groups continue to need more compute capacity, which means leveraging the latest innovations in HPC technologies as well as an assortment of resources to meet the unique needs of different workloads. Increasingly, systems based on Arm processors are stepping into that role, offering low power consumption and strategic advantages for HPC workloads.
From scale-out clusters on commodity hardware, to flash-based storage with data temperature tiering, cloud-based object storage, and even tape, there are a myriad of considerations when architecting the right enterprise storage solution. In this round-table webinar, we examine case studies covering a variety of storage requirements available today. We’ll discuss when and where to use various storage media in accordance with use cases, and we’ll look at security challenges and emerging storage technology coming online.
