Matt Price, Systems Engineer, Veeam Software, Inc.
Chris M. Evans, Independent Consultant, Langton Blue Ltd.
With a need for 24/7 operations, protecting data in ways that minimize downtime is an essential requirement for all IT departments. Data replication is a key tool that enables virtualization administrators to deliver continuous operations in virtual server environments. There are important considerations which determine where best to implement replication technology.
This webinar discusses the technical options available and how to choose the right product for your needs. You will learn:
- Why data replication is needed in your IT environment
- A definition of data replication, including the different modes of operation
- Why array-based replication solutions aren’t ideal for virtualized environments
- How to choose between volume-based or VM-based replication tools
- An overview of Veeam Backup and Replication, including replication features
- An overview of StarWind Virtual SAN, including replication features

3. Live Webinar: How to build Microsoft Scale-Out File Server without SAS JBODs
Thursday, December 9, 9 am PT / 12:00pm ET
Featured Speaker: Max Kolomyeytsev, Product Manager, StarWind Software
Microsoft Scale-Out File Server is a new efficient storage solution for Hyper-V and SQL.
SoFS uses SMB 3.0 to eliminate all the complexity of traditional shared storage and leverages the clustering capabilities to maintain true storage high availability.
While most of the vendors show how SoFS is configured with shared JBOD storage, we will show you how to configure it with just local storage and zero additional hardware.
Join StarWind expert Max Kolomyeytsev and learn how:
- How to reduce deployment costs by excluding shared SAS JBOD infrastructure
- How to enable the use of local high capacity SATA, high speed PCIe SSD, and commodity SATA SSD as storage for SoFS
- Leverage RAM cache from read-only to a distributed write cache
