Later this month (Thursday, May 27, 2010 at 12:00pm Eastern / 9:00am Pacific), IT Analyst David Chernicoff and I will co-host a webinar covering the benefits and caveats of defragmenting SAN attached servers.

Here is the abstract: 

As storage technologies have become more advanced there is a tendency for storage administrators to believe that the hardware is handling all of their data maintenance needs, keeping their files optimized in the best possible way for top performance and availability. The reality is that hardware solutions alone aren't the most efficient way to keep your critical data stored in an optimal fashion. With this webinar we will give you the information you need to understand how your data is actually being handled and what you can do to improve the performance and optimization of your Windows Server storage.

We also have two webinars planned for June on the topic of virtualization. One jointly with Redmond Mag, and the other with Microsoft. I'll post registration links on this blog when they are available. Lastly, we'll have a reprise of the SSD webinar we did with Microsoft sometime in July – this time we'll host and Microsoft will be our guest.
