Sanbolic Webinar: Virtualized File Serving on Commodity Hardware
File serving has become the virtual backbone of modern business. Consequently, as today’s most prevalent workload, it has also become IT’s biggest priority and unfortunately – biggest headache. With very few alternatives, even the most sophisticated IT organizations have had little choice other than to invest in proprietary NAS solutions, that present clear disadvantages in terms of cost, security and scalability, as well as vendor lock-in and compatibility issues. Attendees of this webinar will be introduced to Sanbolic’s recently announced Melio ShareCenter, a new software solution that enables customers to leverage commodity hardware in order to transform siloed Windows Server environments into highly scalable network-attached storage (NAS) solutions, at a fraction of the cost of traditional approaches.

Sanbolic Webinar: Ensuring Agility and High Availability for Applications in Private Clouds
To achieve true cloud agility and high availability, distributed computing needs dynamically scalable, service-aware, distributed storage. In this webinar learn how Sanbolic’s Melio software enables shared access to critical data, independent of the underlying storage hardware. Melio + Hyper-V = A cost-effective, scalable and highly available private cloud. Key advantages that will be covered include:
- Purpose-built with native Windows integration
- Full integration with Hyper-V, SCVMM, SCOM, Deployment Services, DPM & MSCS
- Soft-SAN capability embedded in platform
- Critical Hyper-V extensions including quality of service (QoS), high availability (HA), storage live migration and centralized management
- Tight Active Directory integration

Sanbolic Webinar: How to Reduce Cost and Complexity in VDI Deployments
This webinar will focus on how to improve the ROI on VDI deployments based on Citrix XenDesktop by reducing the cost and complexity associated with a pivotal area of VDI – storage. The discussion will revolve around using Sanbolic’s Melio distributed data management software to create flexible, scalable, highly available shared storage for Provisioning Services (PVS), a core component of XenDesktop that enables on-demand streaming of desktop images. By combining the unique capabilities of Melio with the ease of deploying and managing desktop images with PVS, attendees will learn how to commence a VDI Pilot quickly and easily and with lower upfront (CapEx) and ongoing (OpEx) costs while simplifying data and storage management, enabling dynamic infrastructure expansion and providing reliable protection of your desktop images. This webinar is ideal for those that are planning or starting a VDI Pilot, or have already begun a Pilot and are planning the most efficient way to transition from Pilot to Production.

Sanbolic Webinar: Decoupling SQL Server from Rigid Server and Storage Binding
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 webinar will review the causes of SQL Server sprawl and the resulting problems, examine traditional solutions – their benefits and limitations, and then present “Best Practices” strategies for efficiently and cost effectively extending SQL Server agility, high availability, scalability, and performance, while lowering overall costs.
