  • Why Composable Infrastructure?
    Why Composable Infrastructure?
    Philip Kufeldt, Univ. of California, Santa Cruz; Mike Jochimsen, Kaminario; Alex McDonald, NetApp Recorded: Feb 13 2019 60 mins
    Cloud data centers are by definition very dynamic. The need for infrastructure availability in the right place at the right time for the right use case is not as predictable, nor as static, as it has been in traditional data centers. These cloud data centers need to rapidly construct virtual pools of compute, network and storage based on the needs of particular customers or applications, then have those resources dynamically and automatically flex as needs change. To accomplish this, many in the industry espouse composable infrastructure capabilities, which rely on heterogeneous resources with specific capabilities which can be discovered, managed, and automatically provisioned and re-provisioned through data center orchestration tools. The primary benefit of composable infrastructure results in a smaller grained sets of resources that are independently scalable and can be brought together as required. In this webcast, SNIA experts will discuss:

    •What prompted the development of composable infrastructure?
    •What are the solutions?
    •What is composable infrastructure?
    •Enabling technologies (not just what’s here, but what’s needed…)
    •Status of composable infrastructure standards/products
    •What’s on the horizon – 2 years? 5 Years
    •What it all means
  • IoT Series [Ep.3]: IoT Essentials -- Selecting a Vendor
    IoT Series [Ep.3]: IoT Essentials -- Selecting a Vendor
    Johna Till Johnson, CEO & Founder, Nemertes Research Recorded: Feb 12 2019 49 mins
    Selecting a vendor partner (or partners) is one of the most critical decisions enterprises will make on their IoT journeys. The right partner makes all the difference: enterprises with top-ranked partners report greater success in generating revenue, cutting costs, and optimizing business processes via IoT.
    • Who are the right providers?
    • What are the critical factors to consider in selecting one?

    This webinar reviews the provider landscape and highlights critical selection factors for companies of all sizes and industries.
  • File vs. Block vs. Object Storage
    File vs. Block vs. Object Storage
    Alex McDonald, Vice-Chair SNIA Europe and NetApp Recorded: Feb 5 2019 66 mins
    When it comes to storage, a byte is a byte is a byte, isn’t it? One of the enduring truths about simplicity is that scale makes everything hard, and with that comes complexity. And when we’re not processing the data, how do we store it and access it?

    In this webcast, we will compare three types of data access: file, block and object storage, and the access methods that support them. Each has its own set of use cases, and advantages and disadvantages. Each provides simple to sophisticated management of the data, and each makes different demands on storage devices and programming technologies.

    Perhaps you’re comfortable with block and file, but are interested in investigating the more recent class of object storage and access. Perhaps you’re happy with your understanding of objects, but would really like to understand files a bit better, and what advantages or disadvantages they have compared to each other. Or perhaps you want to understand how file, block and object are implemented on the underlying storage systems – and how one can be made to look like the other, depending on how the storage is accessed. Join us as we discuss and debate:

    Storage devices
    •How different types of storage drive different management & access solutions

    Block
    •Where everything is in fixed-size chunks
    •SCSI and SCSI-based protocols, and how FC and iSCSI fit in

    Files
    •When everything is a stream of bytes
    •NFS and SMB

    Objects
    •When everything is a blob
    •HTTP, key value and RESTful interfaces

    Altogether
    •When files, blocks and objects collide

  • How to Build a Cloud-First Policy in Hybrid & Edge Computing Environments
    How to Build a Cloud-First Policy in Hybrid & Edge Computing Environments
    Mike Openshaw, Senior Enterprise Architect, 6point6 Recorded: Jan 23 2019 38 mins
    Cloud computing has become synonymous with the digital agenda. Looking across the 2018 IT estate, cloud is no longer conspicuous by its presence but by its absence. Gartner projects the market size and growth of the cloud service industry at nearly three times the growth of the overall IT services industry through 2022. Cloud is agnostic of industry sector, having already established a material foothold in banks, schools, governments and healthcare.

    In this webinar, we will explore what a cloud-first policy means for you no matter where you are on your cloud journey, with a focus on both where your remaining on-premise IT estate sits and how this fits into a cloud-first world.

    About the speaker:
    Mike is a TOGAF and SAFe certified architect specialising in the strategic enterprise and solutions architecture space, with a solid background in integration, application, infrastructure and data architecture.

    He has a proven track record of delivering strategic business goals through business transformation programmes (up to £30M+) with complex interdependencies across the enterprise. Mike has extensive sector experience having worked in financial services, retail banking, digital eCommerce, not for profit, utilities and FMCG organisations.

    He has a comprehensive background of technology leadership and transformation, business process re-engineering and systems integration over a wide range of heterogeneous technology environments, from hybrid cloud solutions to physical on-premise estates.
