  • Modernizing IT in the Platform Era
    Modernizing IT in the Platform Era Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer, Apcera Recorded: Apr 20 2017 60 mins
    Today's IT is struggling with trying to keep the lights on for sometimes 100s or 1000s of applications built on legacy architectures while also attempting to turn on a dime in an era when business expects "just in time" IT. What strategies can you employ to help bridge the gap from yesterday to today and tomorrow? Where do you need to look for change (technologies, service providers, organizational) and what is possible through that change? Finally, what assumptions about what's possible for you to have to break through with yourself, your management and your customers?

  • The Cloud Management Challenge
    The Cloud Management Challenge Bernard Golden, CEO, Navica Recorded: Apr 18 2017 54 mins
    Cloud adoption is booming, with the major providers likely to top $100 billion in revenue by 2020. As enterprise IT organizations place a larger proportion of their application portfolios in cloud environments, they face a choice: manage those applications with the native tools offered by the cloud providers, or use third-party tools. This presentation examines the tradeoffs IT organizations face when deciding on which approach to use, along with the pros and cons of each approach. Specific topics addressed include:

    - Technical approaches to managing cloud-based applications
    - Tradeoffs in using cloud provider or third-party management solutions
    - The challenge of innovation: managing applications that use higher-level cloud services
    - How business value changes the cloud management decision
    - The unaddressed cloud management challenge: economics

    The webinar presenter has worked in cloud computing for over a decade, including at two cloud management software companies. He was also named by Wired.com as one of the ten most influential persons in cloud computing. Be sure to attend this webinar to learn from his experiences — good and bad — in this field!
  • Keys to Continuous Testing using the Public Cloud
    Keys to Continuous Testing using the Public Cloud Clint Sprauve, HPE, Shane Evans, HPE Recorded: Apr 4 2017 63 mins
    Continuous Testing enables delivery of applications with greater speed and agility, without compromising quality. However, this places a demand on the application team to ensure complete coverage of the test cases, multiplied by the clients and devices that most accurately represent our users. The answer lies in the public cloud, but this isn’t without risks and complexity.

    In this webinar, HPE will discuss the benefits and issues teams encounter when building a Continuous Testing pipeline using a public or private cloud infrastructure, and how to ensure the highest application quality, at the speed of your business.

    In this webinar we will explore:

    What tests to run and when
    Environment coverage
    Optimizing your execution costs
    Exploratory testing to fill the gaps

  • What Does Hyperconverged Mean to Storage
    What Does Hyperconverged Mean to Storage Greg Schulz, founder and analyst of Server StorageIO, John Kim, SNIA-ESF Chair, Mellanox Recorded: Mar 15 2017 63 mins
    Converged Infrastructure (CI), Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) along with Cluster or Cloud In Box (CIB) are popular trend topics that have gained both industry and customer adoption. As part of data infrastructures, CI, CIB and HCI enable simplified deployment of resources (servers, storage, I/O networking, hardware, software) across different environments. However, what do these approaches mean for a hyperconverged storage environment? What are the key concerns and considerations related specifically to storage? Most importantly, how do you know that you’re asking the right questions in order to get to the right answers?

    Find out in this live SNIA-ESF webcast where expert Greg Schulz, founder and analyst of Server StorageIO, will move beyond the hype to discuss:

    · What are the storage considerations for CI, CIB and HCI
    · Fast applications and fast servers need fast server storage I/O
    · Networking and server storage I/O considerations
    · How to avoid aggravation-causing aggregation (bottlenecks)
    · Aggregated vs. disaggregated vs. hybrid converged
    · Planning, comparing, benchmarking and decision-making
    · Data protection, management and east-west I/O traffic
    · Application and server I/O north-south traffic

  • Panel Discussion: Impact of Cloud and Digital on Future of the IT Organisation
    Panel Discussion: Impact of Cloud and Digital on Future of the IT Organisation Rob Pritchard (Moderator) Recorded: Mar 8 2017 59 mins
    The organisational impact of “cloud” adoption (in all its guises), as well as other modern enterprise technologies, is a topic of relevance to IT and business leaders in all industry sectors.
    The much vaunted shift to "everything-as-a-service" will have major implications not only on the tasks and services that IT departments traditionally perform, but the skills required in the organisation and the nature of the relationship that “IT” has with the “business”. Shadow IT is now a fact of life in most organisations. Business customers expect IT to take more of a leadership role in defining and enabling business strategy.
    Or will it? Is it? Do they?
    Join our panel of CxOs sharing real world experience as they debate the key factors impacting the performance of IT and how it evolves to meet the challenges
    Panellists:

  • Long-term Data Retention: Challenges, Standards and Best Practices
    Long-term Data Retention: Challenges, Standards and Best Practices Simona Rabinovici-Cohen, IBM, Phillip Viana, IBM, Sam Fineberg Recorded: Feb 16 2017 61 mins
    The demand for digital data preservation has increased drastically in recent years. Maintaining a large amount of data for long periods of time (months, years, decades, or even forever) becomes even more important given government regulations such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, OSHA, and many others that define specific preservation periods for critical records.

    While the move from paper to digital information over the past decades has greatly improved information access, it complicates information preservation. This is due to many factors including digital format changes, media obsolescence, media failure, and loss of contextual metadata. The Self-contained Information Retention Format (SIRF) was created by SNIA to facilitate long-term data storage and preservation. SIRF can be used with disk, tape, and cloud based storage containers, and is extensible to any new storage technologies. It provides an effective and efficient way to preserve and secure digital information for many decades, even with the ever-changing technology landscape.
Join this webcast to learn:
    •Key challenges of long-term data retention
    •How the SIRF format works and its key elements
    •How SIRF supports different storage containers - disks, tapes, CDMI and the cloud
    •Availability of Open SIRF

    SNIA experts that developed the SIRF standard will be on hand to answer your questions.
