  • IT Transformation: Beyond the Traditional Data Centre
    IT Transformation: Beyond the Traditional Data Centre Simon Ratcliffe, Consulting & Advisory, Ensono Recorded: Feb 15 2018 49 mins
    IT Transformation projects are usually driven by the need to reduce complexity, improve agility, simplify systems, contain costs, manage ever growing data and provide more efficient operational management. Arguably, for seasoned IT professionals there is nothing new about the drivers for transformational change; it’s the velocity and scale of transformation today that’s the big challenge.

    Today, to effectively accelerate business innovation, successful IT leaders are building infrastructure that focuses on automation and flexibility, supporting agile application development and helping deliver world-class customer experience. Of course, IT teams are still under pressure to deliver legacy, mission-critical applications but they also need to support a seemingly constant flow of emerging business opportunities. They’re also tasked to lower costs, reduce Capex, while helping to drive revenue growth. That’s a lot of drivers and this complex juggling act often requires modernising infrastructure. An almost inevitable result of this is that the mix of platforms they adopt will include public cloud.

    So, does that signal the end of the corporate data centre as we know it? Well, as is so often the answer – yes and no. ‘Yes’ because there is no doubt that the complexity and cost of building and managing on-premise infrastructures is becoming increasingly unsustainable for many businesses. And ‘no’ because business continuity and stability of legacy applications are still, quite rightly, primary drivers today. But the corporate data centre may well now be a service provider’s data centre...
  • Storage Performance Benchmarking: Workloads
    Storage Performance Benchmarking: Workloads Mark Rogov, Dell EMC, Chris Conniff, Dell EMC, Tim Lustig, Mellanox Recorded: Feb 14 2018 57 mins
    Benchmarking storage performance is both an art and a science. In this 5th installment of the SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum’s “Storage Performance Benchmarking” series, our experts take on optimizing performance for various workloads. Attendees will gain an understanding of workload profiles and their characteristics for common Independent Software Vendor (ISV) applications and learn how to identify application workloads based on I/O profiles to better understand the implications on storage architectures and design patterns. This webcast will cover:
    •An introduction to benchmarking storage performance of workloads
    •Workload characteristics
    •Common Workloads (OLTP, OLAP, VMware, etc.)
    •Graph fun!

  • Ep. 8 Using Splunk to Analyze Performance Metrics: Q&T SIG Talk
    Ep. 8 Using Splunk to Analyze Performance Metrics: Q&T SIG Talk Chris Trimper Recorded: Feb 13 2018 18 mins
    Using Splunk to Analyze Performance Metrics

    Chris Trimper will show you how to leverage Splunk for storing and analyzing performance data from LoadRunner. This allows for easy trending and possible collaboration with other application metrics stored in Splunk. We will also look at building self-service dashboards showing application performance metrics.

    You will be hearing about:

    • Introduction to Splunk
    • Process of preparing LR data for Splunk consumption
    • Building dashboards and performing analytics in Splunk

  • Fibre Channel Performance: Congestion, Slow Drain, and Over-Utilization, Oh My!
    Fibre Channel Performance: Congestion, Slow Drain, and Over-Utilization, Oh My! Ed Mazurek, Cisco, Earl Apellanes, Broadcom, David Rogers, Teledyne LeCroy Recorded: Feb 6 2018 66 mins
    Today's Fibre Channel SANs are tasked with reliably delivering huge amounts of data with almost zero latency in an environment with a large variance of end device capabilities. Fibre Channel is a lossless network protocol but what ramifications does that have? What is considered a good SAN design and what are best practices? What situations can lead to suboptimal performance? How can a device that is not performing well affect the performance of devices even on different parts of the SAN? Can a device that is returning credits without delay affect the SAN just like a device that is returning credits slowly?

    Get answers to these questions and more in this live FCIA webcast where you’ll learn:

    •How Fibre Channel achieves a lossless data delivery
    •The definition of "slow drain“
    •Basic slow drain indications and what they mean
    •“Over” Utilization - How a device that isn't "slow drain" by the typical definition can affect a SAN in a similar fashion as a slow drain device
    •How to prevent, Identify, and resolve performance problems

    Register today for this live event. Our experts will be on hand to answer your questions.
