  • The Blurring of Boundaries in a Software-Defined Data Center
    The Blurring of Boundaries in a Software-Defined Data Center JR Rivers, Co-Founder & CTO, Cumulus Networks Recorded: Aug 17 2017 34 mins
    The software-defined data center has been a heavily touted concept over the past few years, and heralded by some as the next step in the evolution of virtualization and cloud computing. Having a data center that is governed by software, rather than dictated by hardware, can lead to more fully automated and intelligent operations. Having infrastructure elements such as networking, storage and security conceived of as a services is, indeed, an attractive concept to many.

    In this webinar we will be joined by JR Rivers, Co-Founder and CTO of Cumulus Networks, to talk about how he (and Cumulus) define the concept of a software-defined data center. He will present how the definition of a software-defined data center has evolved since its inception, and how tools like VXLAN, EVPN, Ansible and more can help organizations further their journey to a “software-defined” state and simplify network operations.
  • The Future of the Data Center Colocation Market: Trends & Growth Drivers
    The Future of the Data Center Colocation Market: Trends & Growth Drivers Jabez Tan, Research Director, Data Centers, Structure Research Recorded: Aug 17 2017 36 mins
    Join Jabez Tan, Keynote speaker at Data Centre World Hong Kong and Cloud Expo Asia, as he takes an in-depth look at the primary metrics that tell the story of the Hong Kong colocation market.

    We track the market’s size and growth trajectory and provide a five-year CAGR projection, along with a detailed analysis of the underlying supply and demand dynamics. Our proprietary methodology takes this analysis to a number of levels.

    First, colocation supply is measured from both a space and power perspective.
    Second, all market metrics – including space, power and revenue – are classified and then measured as either retail or wholesale colocation.
    Third, we size the market – again, from both a retail and colocation perspective – on an aggregated and sub-regional basis.

    This webinar is an excellent resource for any service provider, investor or end user (service provider or enterprise) that is looking to understand and project the data centre market in Hong Kong or find a service provider.

  • Software Defined… as a service
    Software Defined… as a service Glyn Bowden, Chief Technologist & Deepak Ramchandani Vensi, Software Defined & Cloud, lead Solution Consultant, HPE Recorded: Aug 17 2017 49 mins
    Software defined and X as a Service are terms often used by organizations pushing “the next big thing”. Just like Cloud and DevOps before them, these are real movements and real principles that businesses and IT teams are embracing to deliver the services their own customer base have grown to expect. However, what does reality look like from what was proposed?

    In this talk we look at what Software defined and “as a Service” mean to our customers, both independently and together as a consumption model for IT. We examine the benefits that could be realized as well as the challenges and shifts in behavior and policy that will be required to be successful.
    How are you delivering “Software Defined Services” and what does it mean for your business, developers and in turn impact your customers? Join us as we summarize the journeys our customers are going on and what it means to them.
  • Challenges and Opportunities in the Software Defined Data Centre Era
    Challenges and Opportunities in the Software Defined Data Centre Era Arturo Suarez, Product Strategist, Canonical Recorded: Aug 15 2017 48 mins
    With the irruption of Open Source and Software-Defined components in the Data Centre, there has been a shift of cost from licensing and appliances - in the traditional IT - to operations. The challenge in this new era, where all the components evolve faster than adoption, learning curves and skill development, resides in keeping the operations efficient while adding innovation, with its inherent complexity.

    During this webinar we will go through best practices to navigate that transition and set up your operations teams to the future while keeping cost contained and services competitive.

  • Fibre Channel Fundamentals
    Fibre Channel Fundamentals Rupin Mohan, HPE, Earl Apellanes, Brocade Recorded: Jun 15 2017 52 mins
    Fibre Channel (FC) is the storage networking protocol for enterprise data centers, with over 11 million ports deployed. Fibre Channel is purpose-built –and engineered to meet the demands for enterprise data centers that require rock solid reliability, high performance and scalability. It can even transport new storage protocols like NVMe natively.

    Flexible and resilient, Fibre Channel frames can be encapsulated in both an IP packet (FCIP) as well as a Layer 2 frame (FCoE) and provide unparalleled performance for storage systems. Even so, many people don’t actually understand how it works. This live webcast will help you understand the basics so that you can make informed decisions yourself.

    In this “Foundations” webcast, we’ll answer key questions, such as:
    - What is Fibre Channel?
    - What makes Fibre Channel so reliable?
    - How is Fibre Channel different from other storage protocols?
    - What are the best practices for designing Fibre Channel solutions?
    - And more

    If you’re not familiar with Fibre Channel and want to learn more, or if you are interested in learning about how Fibre Channel is purpose-built for storage and future proofed for next-gen NVMe storage arrays, join us at this live event. Our experts will be available to answer your specific questions on the spot.

  • IP-Based Object Drives Now Have a Management Standard
    IP-Based Object Drives Now Have a Management Standard Erik Riedel, Dell EMC, Enrico Signoretti, OpenIO, David Slik, NetApp, Alex McDonald, NetApp Recorded: Apr 20 2017 59 mins
    The growing popularity of object-based storage has resulted in the development of Ethernet-connected storage devices, herein referred to as IP-Based Drives and subsystems supporting object interfaces and in some cases the ability to run localized applications.
    Typical scale-out storage nodes consist of relatively inexpensive enclosures with IP network connectivity, CPU, Memory and Direct Attached Storage (DAS). While inexpensive to deploy, these solutions become harder to manage over time.
    To ease management of these drives, SNIA has approved the release of the IP-Based Drive Management Specification. In this webcast, you’ll hear from authors of the specification who’ll discuss:

    • Major Components of the IP Based Drive Management Standard
    • How the standard leverages the DMTF Redfish management standard to manage Kinetic and other IP-Based Drives
    • Providing a standard management interface for drives that are part of JBOD or JBOF enclosures

    This standard allows drive management to scale to datacenters and beyond, enabling automation and Software Defined Datacenters.
