  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage-Turquoise: Where Does My Data Go
    Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage-Turquoise: Where Does My Data Go Rob Peglar, Symbolic IO, Scott Shadley, Micron, J Metz, Cisco, Chad Hintz, Cisco Recorded: Aug 1 2017 61 mins
    In this, the seventh entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” popular webcast series we look into the mysticism and magic of what happens when you send your data off into the wilderness. Once you click “save,” for example, where does it actually go?

    When we start to dig deeper beyond the application layer, we often don’t understand what happens behind the scenes. It’s important to understand multiple aspects of the type of storage our data goes to along with their associated benefits and drawbacks as well as some of the protocols used to transport it.

    In this webcast we will show you more about the following:

    •Volatile v Non-Volatile v Persistent Memory
    •NVDIMM v RAM v DRAM v SLC v MLC v TLC v NAND v 3D NAND v Flash v SSDs v NVMe
    •NVMe (the protocol)

    Many people get nervous when they see that many acronyms, but all too often they come up in conversation, and you’re expected to know all of them? Worse, you’re expected to know the differences between them, and the consequences of using them? Even worse, you’re expected to know what happens when you use the wrong one?

    We’re here to help.

    It’s an ambitious project, but these terms and concepts are at the heart of where compute, networking and storage intersect. Having a good grasp of these concepts ties in with which type of storage networking to use, and how data is actually stored behind the scenes.

    Please join us on August 1st for another edition of the “Too Proud To Ask” series, as we work towards making you feel more comfortable in the strange, mystical world of storage.

    In this, the sixth entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” popular webcast series we look into some of the nitties and the gritties of storage details that are often assumed.

    When looking at data from the lens of an application, host, or operating system, it’s easy to forget that there are several layers of abstraction underneath before the actual placement of data occurs. In this webcast we are going to scratch beyond the first layer to understand some of the basic taxonomies of these layers.

    In this webcast we will show you more about the following:

    •Storage APIs and POSIX
    •Block, File, and Object storage
    •Byte Addressable and Logical Block Addressing
    •Log Structures and Journaling Systems

    It’s an ambitious project, but these terms and concepts are at the heart of where compute, networking and storage intersect. Having a good grasp of these concepts ties in with which type of storage networking to use, and how data is actually stored behind the scenes.

    Join us on July 6th for this session. We look forward to seeing you there!

  • Casting the Net to Manage your Storage: Redfish and Swordfish Concepts
    Casting the Net to Manage your Storage: Redfish and Swordfish Concepts Richelle Ahlvers, Principal SW Architect, Broadcom; Michael Raineri, Principal SW Engineer, Dell Inc; Don Deel, NetApp Recorded: Jun 22 2017 68 mins
    The SNIA’s Scalable Storage Management Technical Work Group (SSM TWG) has created and published an open industry standard specification for storage management that defines a customer centric interface for the purpose of managing storage and related data services. This specification builds on the DMTF’s Redfish specification using RESTful methods and JSON formatting. This presentation provides an overview of basic Swordfish and Redfish concepts and shows how Swordfish extends Redfish. Examples showing how clients can traverse the models, highlighting how the two standards integrate seamlessly together, are given.

    Are there basic storage terms you should understand, but maybe you don’t?

    Then welcome to this webcast series, “Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Storage, but were too Proud to Ask” where we’re going to take an irreverent, yet still informative look, at the parts of a storage solution in Data Center architectures. We’ll start with the very basics – The Naming of the Parts. We’ll break down the entire storage picture and identify the places where most of the confusion falls. Join us in this first webcast – Part Chartreuse – where we’ll cover:

    •What an initiator is
    •What a target is
    •What a storage controller is
    •What a RAID is, and what a RAID controller is
    •What a Volume Manager is
    •What a Storage Stack is

    Oh, and why is this series named after colors, instead of numbers? Because there is no order - each is a standalone seminar. So don’t let pride get in your way.

    Register now for our live event on June 22nd.
  • Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage: Getting from Here to There
    Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage: Getting from Here to There Chad Hintz, Cisco, Fred Zhang, Intel, John Kim, Mellanox, Alex McDonald, NetApp Recorded: May 9 2017 58 mins
    As part of the successful “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask” series, we’ve discussed numerous topics about storage devices, protocols, and networks. As we examine some of these topics further, we begin to tease out some subtle nuances; subtle, yet important nevertheless.

    In Part Sepia, we’re going to take a look at some of the terms and concepts that affect Storage Architectures as a whole. In particular, we’ll be looking at those aspects that can help or hinder storage systems inside the network:

    •Encapsulation versus Tunneling
    •IOPS vs Latency vs Jitter
    •Quality of Service (QoS)

    Each of these topics has a profound impact on storage designs and performance, but they are often misunderstood. We’re going to help you become clear on all of these very important storage concepts so that you can grok storage just a little bit more.

  • How Many IOPS?  Users Share Their 2017 Storage Performance Needs
    How Many IOPS? Users Share Their 2017 Storage Performance Needs JIm Handy, Objective Analysis and Tom Coughlin, Coughlin Associates Recorded: May 3 2017 63 mins
    Modern storage systems offer a dizzying range of IOPS (from hundreds to millions), as well as different latencies and storage capacities. Many IT managers find it difficult to determine which SSD or flash array to buy for their needs, or even whether they can get the speed they need from standard HDDs. This webcast will present results from a 2012 and follow-up 2016 survey of IT professionals to understand performance, capacity, and cost requirements, including IOPS, storage capacity, and latency, of various applications.
  • 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.

  • Architectural Principles for Networked Solid State Storage Access  - Part 2
    Architectural Principles for Networked Solid State Storage Access - Part 2 Doug Voigt, Chair SNIA NVM Programming Model, HPE, J Metz, SNIA Board of Directors, Cisco Recorded: Apr 19 2017 62 mins
    New solid state storage technologies are forcing the industry to refine distinctions between networks and other types of system interconnects. The question on everyone’s mind is, when is it beneficial to use networks to access solid state storage, particularly persistent memory? The answer to this question involves application, interconnect, memory technology and scalability factors that can be analyzed in the context of a latency budget. In this talk we will explore latency budgets for various types of solid state storage access. These can be used to determine which combinations of interconnects, technologies and scales are compatible with Load/Store instruction access and which are better suited to IO completion techniques such as polling or blocking. In this webcast you’ll learn:

    •Why latency is important in accessing solid state storage
    •How to determine the appropriate use of networking in the context of a latency budget
    •Do’s and don’ts for Load/Store access
