    [Panel] When iOS Code is Leaked: How Companies Can Manage App Security Jeanne Morain, James Jardine, Don Cox Recorded: Feb 22 2018 62 mins
    Last week it was uncovered that an intern at Apple leaked some of the iPhone's source code was leaked on GitHub.

    The code was for iBoot, a component of the iPhone's OS. While it was an older version of iOS 9 and Apple has declared the leak shouldn't be of concern to the average user, the community has been scratching their heads wondering how sensitive code from a conglomerate like Apple could accidentally be made public.

    We hear about data leaks and security breaches almost on a weekly basis now, but when it comes to something so widely used by global consumers, it poses an even bigger concern that human error could potentially have disastrous results.

    Join this expert panel with moderator Jeanne Morain, Digital & Cloud Strategist, iSpeak Cloud, and panelists James Jardine, CEO & App Security Consultant, Jardine Software, and Don Cox, Advisory Board Member at Netswitch Technology Management and Virtual Rehab, Inc.

    They will discuss and explore the following:

    - What are the potential ramifications of such a breach?
    - Dark web
    - Company costs and impact on brand and PR
    - What are action items companies can do to prevent such a breach from happening?

  • Tech M&A: What the Red Hat Acquisition of CoreOS Means for Containers
    Tech M&A: What the Red Hat Acquisition of CoreOS Means for Containers Jeanne Morain, iSpeak Cloud, Jay Lyman, 451 Research and Chris Haddad, Karux LLC Recorded: Feb 9 2018 62 mins
    The containers and microservices industry has exploded in recent years. With companies like Docker blazing the trail, we've seen a huge expansion in the application container market with other open source platforms like Red Hat, Mesosphere, Kubernetes, CoreOS... and the list goes on. However, when it comes to major mergers and acquisitions, the containers market hasn't been high on the list of deals.

    It was recently publicized that Red Hat is acquiring their fellow open source vendor CoreOS for $250 million. This deal will allow them to expand their share of the Kubernetes market and enhance their Kubernetes software management.

    What does this type and size deal mean for such an emerging market? What are the possibilities, potential, and even ramifications for application container, cloud application, and cloud infrastructure providers?

    Tune into this expert panel with Jeanne Morain, Digital Transformation & Cloud Expert, iSpeak Cloud, Jay Lyman, Principal Analyst, 451 Research and Chris Haddad, Chief Architect, Karux LLC as they discuss these and other pertinent questions in the tech M&A marketplace.
  • FC vs. iSCSI
    FC vs. iSCSI Fred Knight, NetApp, John Kim, SNIA ESF Chair, Mellanox, Alex McDonald, SNIA ESF Vice Chair, NetApp Recorded: Jan 31 2018 63 mins
    In the enterprise, block storage typically handles the most critical applications such as database, ERP, product development, and tier-1 virtualization. The dominant connectivity option for this has long been Fibre Channel SAN (FC-SAN), but recently many customers and block storage vendors have turned to iSCSI instead. FC-SAN is known for its reliability, lossless nature, 2x FC speed bumps, and carefully tested interoperability between vendors. iSCSI is known for running on ubiquitous Ethernet networks, 10x Ethernet speed bumps, and supporting commodity networking hardware from many vendors.

    Because, FCoE also delivers increasing performance as Ethernet speeds increase – and, Fibre Channel also delivers increasing performance as FC speeds increase. Historically, FC delivered speed bumps at a more rapid interval (2x bumps), while Ethernet delivered their speed bumps at a slower pace (10x bumps), but that has changed recently with Ethernet adding 2.5G, 5G, 25G, 40G, and 50G to the traditional 1G, 10G, 100G timeline.

    As the storage world moves to more flash and other non-volatile memory, more cloud, and more virtualization (or more containers), it’s time to revisit one of the great IT debates: Should you deploy Fibre Channel or iSCSI? Attend this SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum webcast to learn:
    •Will Fibre Channel or iSCSI deliver faster performance? Does it depend on the workload?
    •How is the wire speed race going between FC and iSCSI? Does anyone actually run iSCSI on 100GbE? When will 128Gb Fibre Channel arrive?
    •Can any server or storage array actually support more than 32Gb/s or 40Gb/s speeds?
    •Do Linux, Windows, or hypervisors have a preference?
    •Is one really easier [to install/manage] than the other, or are they just different?
    •How does the new NVMe over Fabrics protocol affect this debate?

    Join SNIA experts as they compare FC vs. iSCSI and argue in an energetic yet friendly way about their differences and merits of each.

    Multi-Cloud Storage: Addressing the Need for Portability and Interoperability John Webster, Senior Partner, Evaluator Group, Mark Carlson, SNIA CSI Co-Chair, Alex McDonald, SNIA CSI Chair Recorded: Dec 12 2017 43 mins
    In a recent survey of enterprise hybrid cloud users, the Evaluator Group saw that nearly 60% of respondents indicated that lack of interoperability is a significant technology-related issue that they must overcome in order to move forward. In fact, lack of interoperability was chosen above public cloud security and network security as significant inhibitors. This webcast looks at enterprise hybrid cloud objectives and barriers with a focus on cloud interoperability within the storage domain and the SNIA’s Cloud Storage Initiative to promote interoperability and portability of data stored in the cloud.

  • Unprotected Files on a Public Cloud Server: Live Panel on the NSA Data Leak
    Unprotected Files on a Public Cloud Server: Live Panel on the NSA Data Leak Chris Vickery, George Crump, David Linthicum, Charles Goldberg, Mark Carlson Recorded: Dec 8 2017 59 mins
    Public, private and hybrid cloud are nothing new, but protecting sensitive data stored on these servers is still of the utmost concern. The NSA is no exception.

    It recently became publicized that the contents of a highly sensitive hard drive belonging to the NSA (National Security Agency) were compromised. The virtual disk containing the sensitive data came from an Army Intelligence project and was left on a public AWS (Amazon Web Services) storage server, not password-protected.

    This is one of at least 5 other leaks of NSA-related data in recent years. Not to mention the significant number of breaches and hacks we’ve experienced lately, including Yahoo!, Equifax, WannaCry, Petya, and more.

    The culprit in this case? Unprotected storage buckets. They have played a part in multiple other recent exposures, and concern is on the rise. When it comes to storing data on public cloud servers like AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Rackspace and more, what are the key responsibilities of Storage Architects and Engineers, CIOs and CTOs to avoid these types data leaks?

    Tune in with Chris Vickery, Director of Cyber Risk Research at UpGuard and the one who discovered the leak, along with George Crump, Chief Steward, Storage Switzerland, David Linthicum, Cloud Computing Visionary, Author & Speaker, Charles Goldberg, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, Thales e-Security, and Mark Carlson, Co-Chair, SNIA Technical Council & Cloud Storage Initiative, for a live panel discussion on this ever-important topics.
