Sanbolic Webinar: Citrix PVS 6.0 and Sanbolic Melio 4 – A Winning Combination!
Back by popular demand, Sanbolic is revisiting its first webinar topic of the year. The discussion will once again center around the exciting new features, functionality and benefits now available from Citrix Provisioning Services (PVS) 6.0 combined with Sanbolic Melio 4, along with how to get started with XenDesktop and XenApp pilots quickly, easily and with lower upfront cost. This webinar will address how to move from pilot to production with minimal effort, as well as how to scale dynamically with zero downtime. Sanbolic will also highlight how to take advantage of the new features in both products to enable farm-wide data protection of image files (vDisks); HA for vDisks, PVS and XenDesktop databases; live storage/data migration; storage quality of service (QoS) for optimal desktop and server performance; and multi-site active/active and disaster recovery (DR) (active/passive) configurations. Attendees of this webinar will learn how to achieve the greatest return on investment (ROI) in XenDesktop VDI and XenApp application delivery, powered by PVS 6.0 and Melio 4.

Sanbolic and Storage Strategies NOW Webinar: Decoupling SQL Server from Rigid Server and Storage Binding, While Lowering the Cost and Complexity of Managing SQL Server Environments
Today, even the most sophisticated data centers are facing a quandary regarding how best to address the exponential increase in SQL Server deployments and the seemingly inevitable SQL Server sprawl. Many are finding themselves with SQL Server instances spread haphazardly across the enterprise. While virtualization can offer some relief in the form of SQL Server consolidation, it does not address the bigger problem – high availability (HA) solutions are painful and result in significantly underutilized hardware and overwhelming management costs. This has remained a thorn in the side of database administrators (DBAs) and IT management, as conventional solutions have proven to be ineffective and expensive. Join Deni Connor, Founding Analyst, Storage Strategies NOW (SSG-NOW) and Momchil “Memo” Michailov, Founder and CEO of Sanbolic, as they discuss:
- How did we get here? A review of the causes of SQL Server sprawl and resulting problems, including:
- Redundant hardware and licenses
- Low utilization, unfeasible SLA goals and clustering and high availability (HA) complexity
- Storage challenges, back-end consolidation and overall management complexity
- A review of traditional solutions.
- An explanation of why achieving true SQL server consolidation and optimization is much more than just clustered SQL Server instances.
- How to extend SQL Server agility, high availability (HA) and scalability.
- A detailed “how to” on extending the agility, high availability (HA), clustering and scalability, and consolidation of SQL Server workloads across physical, virtualized and cloud environments, while lowering overall costs and management complexity.
