RainStor and The 451Group Webinar Alert: 'Smarter Management for Your Data Growth'

Available Now On Demand, Webinar Discusses Key Strategies to Retain Critical Data for Analysis at a Fraction of the Cost

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 26, 2011) - RainStor, an infrastructure software company offering specialized database technology for online data retention (OLDR) solutions, recently hosted a webinar featuring The 451 Group Senior Analyst, Matt Aslett, and RainStor's VP of Marketing, Deirdre Mahon. Titled "Smarter Management for Your Data Growth," the 60-minute online event examines trends in the data management landscape and new technology approaches for managing big data, at a fraction of the cost compared to traditional technologies.

The webinar highlights key requirements for online data retention at a time when organizations face explosive growth rates and petabyte scale is no longer uncommon. Using real world examples and scenarios, Aslett and Mahon describe the benefits of offloading analytical data in the warehouse to a secondary, lower cost environment, and explain how RainStor keeps the data online, query-able and at a much lower cost per terabyte. The webinar addresses questions such as:

  • What are the steps that organizations can take to address the Big Data growth while providing scalability, query response performance and also managing overall cost of scale and business demands?
  • What is the impact to the enterprise as the relational database is no longer the technology answer to all data management challenges?
  • What are the key business drivers and requirements for data retention or a dedicated archival repository?
  • What is the adoption curve for new technologies such as Hadoop and MapReduce and how you need to manage and retain petabyte scale data sets?
