Each week George Crump, Founder, and Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland sits down with a guest from within the storage industry to dive deep on various storage topics.
Episode 27 - Designing Storage Infrastructures for AI, ML and DL Workloads
In this episode of Storage Intensity, Barbara Murphy, VP of Marketing at WekaIO, joins George Crump to discuss how to design storage infrastructures for artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and deep learning (DL) workloads. All these environments depend on rapid access to a large amount of unstructured data, and WekaIO is delivering a high-performance file system solution designed specifically for them. Listen in as we discuss the challenges that AI, ML, and DL workloads create and how WekaIO can help.
Episode 26 – Storage Solutions for the Global Collaborative Economy
Panzura's CEO Patrick Harr joins George Crump on this episode of Storage Intensity to discuss how to design storage infrastructures for the global collaborative economy so organizations can tap into the best talent. IT needs to bring the data to those workers. At the same time, IT needs to supply distributed applications with the most up to date data instances.
In the past, organizations used to replicate data between locations, but that leads to out of control storage costs, impossible data protection, and not being 100% sure that the right data is in the right place at the right time. During the podcast, we discuss the importance of establishing a single source of truth and how to accomplish that goal.

Episode 24 - Managing Copy Data Everywhere
Managing data and all the copies of data that an organization requires is a complicated process because most organizations manually create copies. The difficulty in managing copy data is only getting worse as organizations continue their transition to the cloud and start to leverage containers. Organizations need solutions to address today's copy data management challenges and to automate the creation and positioning of it. In this episode of Storage Intensity, George Crump sits down with Jason Brown, Director of Product Marketing with Actifio, to discuss the need for copy data and how Actifio's new release, Actifio 10c, sets a new standard in copy data management.
Episode 23 - Software-Defined Storage and Enterprise Flash - A Perfect Match?
Software-Defined Storage (SDS) is a concept whose time may have finally come, not only because the software itself is getting better but also because the hardware is much more capable. Modern solid-state drives (SSD) can generate hundreds of thousands of IOPS per drive, so storage systems no longer need proprietary hardware to meet performance expectations. The SDS software developers can focus their efforts on improving the efficiency in how they use storage resources. The combination means that customers can choose the exact hardware configuration they need to meet the demands of the organization.
Joining us in this episode of Storage Intensity is Kingston's Enterprise SSD Product Manager, Cameron Crandall. Listen in as George and Cameron discuss why now is the time for SDS.

Episode 22 - Solving the Problem of Managing Unstructured Data
It will come as no surprise to any IT professional that unstructured data is growing out of control. The problem is finding the right tool to protect, archive, and gain insight into this data. Most organizations find protecting unstructured data to be uniquely challenging, and most have no idea what their organization is storing within its vast sea of files.
In this episode of Storage Intensity George Crump, Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland and Jeff Hughes, Founder and CTO of Igneous sit down to discuss the scope of the unstructured data problem and what IT professionals can do to not only better manage unstructured data but tap into the value it may be hiding.
