Sanbolic to Present Best Practices for Building a Private Cloud with Microsoft Hyper-V and Melio Software

Will also discuss how to extend the benefits of server virtualization to the storage layer and in doing so lower costs, improve availability and simplify management

WATERTOWN, Mass., Feb. 6 —

Wednesday, February 8, 11:00 a.m.11:45 a.m. Eastern Time
Sanbolic Webinar: Building a Private Cloud with Microsoft Hyper-V and Sanbolic Melio
For customers building a Microsoft-based private cloud solution, the combination of Sanbolic Melio, Microsoft Hyper-V and Microsoft Systems Center offers a more flexible, reliable and QoS-aware approach compared to the market leading alternatives. Melio's powerful abstraction layer augments a customer's existing application and storage infrastructure to deliver enhanced application availability and scale to virtualized workloads. This webinar will review the advantages and elements necessary to build a flexible, scalable, highly available private cloud using Microsoft Hyper-V, VMM, DPM and Melio.

Key points covered during the webinar will include:

- Consolidating and providing shared access to storage

- Creating highly available active/active Hyper-V clusters

- Providing a seamless growth path for future infrastructure expansion

- Simplifying the management of storage and virtual machine provisioning

- Using Quality of Service (QoS) assignment to prioritize virtual machine I/O

- Extending shared storage capabilities to virtual machines for application data access

- The benefits of using Melio vs. CSV

Sanbolic Webinar: Adding Data Management and Application High Availability Capabilities to Local Storage
This webinar will discuss how to use Sanbolic's Melio distributed data management platform with local storage to simplify data and storage management and enable high availability of enterprise workloads such as virtual desktop (VDI), File-Serving and SQL Server without the costs and complexities associated with SAN storage or proprietary NAS appliances.

Wednesday, February 22, 11:00 a.m.11:45 a.m. Eastern Time
Sanbolic Webinar: SQL Server Virtualization with Sanbolic Melio
Virtualization provides a tool for consolidating and simplifying SQL Server environments by providing the ability to run multiple SQL Servers on a physical machine. However, virtualizing the SQL instances does not address the complexity in provisioning, protecting and managing performance and utilization of the storage resources where the databases reside. Physical deployments need to be managed separately from the virtualized SQL instances, and consequently limit the ability to realize the full benefit of virtualization, consolidation and improved utilization, especially in environments where the workloads may be variable and unpredictable. In this webinar, learn how Sanbolic Melio software extends the benefits of server virtualization to the storage layer, and in doing so simplifies storage management, improves database availability, and streamlines the task of distributing workloads across the SQL server resource pool.
