    IT Ops SIG Talk Ep. 10: Building a Hybrid IT Blueprint Bobby Allen Recorded: Sep 20 2018 29 mins
    Building a Hybrid IT Blueprint – Discover the right mix of public vs. private providers and services for your application portfolio

    Many decision makers will say they need more information. The reality is that most leaders are actually drowning in information. What they really need is to move from information to clarity to insight. Attend our talk on building a hybrid it blueprint to see how CloudGenera can quickly take large amounts of data about your applications and provide data-driven analysis on best execution venue. We believe these sorts of insights should happen in minutes not months.

    Attendees will learn the following:

    •Elements that must be part of Total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis
    •How to analyze public vs. private execution venues
    •How to quickly revisit decisions when inputs or market factors change

    • What were their challenges?
    • Which technologies were key in their transformation?
    • Who ran the project?
    • How did they measure success?

    We look forward to sharing this information with you!
  • New Directions in Cloud Plumbing
    New Directions in Cloud Plumbing Russ White, Network Architect, LinkedIn Recorded: Sep 18 2018 63 mins
    The cloud is not only "other people's computers," it is also "other people's networks." In fact, the network behind the cloud is just as important as the compute and storage resources it interconnects with. To support the massive scale required, cloud network operators focus on a very narrow range of network topologies, typically some form of the spine-and-leaf, and often build highly customized control planes.

    This session will focus on changes taking place in the world of cloud networking; specifically, the disaggregation of software from hardware, and the movement from BGP as the "standard" control plane to the use of link state protocols combined with Software Defined Networking (SDN) principles.

    About the presenter:
    Russ White began working with computers in the mid-1980's, and computer networks in 1990. He has experience in designing, deploying, breaking, and troubleshooting large scale networks, and is a strong communicator from the white board to the board room. Across that time, he has co-authored more than forty software patents, participated in the development of several Internet standards, helped develop the CCDE and the CCAr, and worked in Internet governance with the Internet Society. Russ has a background covering a broad spectrum of topics, including radio frequency engineering and graphic design, and is an active student of philosophy and culture.

    Russ is a co-host at the Network Collective, serves on the Routing Area Directorate at the IETF, co-chairs the BABEL working group, serves on the Technical Services Council/as a maintainer on the open source FR Routing project, and serves on the Linux Foundation (Networking) board. His most recent works are Computer Networking Problems and Solutions, The Art of Network Architecture, Navigating Network Complexity, and the Intermediate System to Intermediate System LiveLesson.

  • Centralized vs. Distributed Storage
    Centralized vs. Distributed Storage John Kim, Mellanox; Alex McDonald, NetApp; J Metz, Cisco Recorded: Sep 11 2018 63 mins
    In the history of enterprise storage there has been a trend to move from local storage to centralized, networked storage. Customers found that networked storage provided higher utilization, centralized and hence cheaper management, easier failover, and simplified data protection, which has driven the move to FC-SAN, iSCSI, NAS and object storage.

    Recently, distributed storage has become more popular where storage lives in multiple locations but can still be shared. Advantages of distributed storage include the ability to scale-up performance and capacity simultaneously and--in the hyperconverged use case--to use each node (server) for both compute and storage. Attend this webcast to learn about:
    •Pros and cons of centralized vs. distributed storage
    •Typical use cases for centralized and distributed storage
    •How distributed works for SAN, NAS, parallel file systems, and object storage
    •How hyperconverged has introduced a new way of consuming storage
