  • 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?

  • 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.

    Multi-Cloud Service Orchestration is a new challenge which Enterprises need to deal with. It is especially difficult for the various Enterprise IT organisational units to stay in control when their business units all use different Cloud portals and credentials and services from different public, private & hybrid clouds. How do they stay in control and support the various exploding landscapes? The T-Systems’ Cloud Integration Center (CIC) was designed to address this challenge, not just for initial orchestration, but also during the lifecycle of the services. Attend this session to hear some of the important considerations and solutions.
