  • Dive Deep into NVMe over Fibre Channel (FC-NVMe)
    Dive Deep into NVMe over Fibre Channel (FC-NVMe) Curt Beckmann, Brocade, Craig Carlson, Cavium, J Metz, Cisco Recorded: Aug 29 2017 59 mins
    As FC-NVMe (NVMe over Fibre Channel) is preparing for it’s official launch, there have been numerous questions about how the technology works, how it gets implemented, and what makes it special when compared to traditional, SCSI-based Fibre Channel.

    When we did our first webinar on FC-NVMe [link], we got lots of questions about more details, more technical aspects, and more thorough explanations. So here we are!

    This presentation is going to be a more thorough analysis of the bits and bytes of FC-NVMe, where you will learn:

    •What are the key differences and similarities between NVMe and SCSI Fibre Channel structures
    •What are the main architectural differences between NVMe and SCSI deployments
    •Impact on Queue Depth
    •How to cross-connect legacy and future flash arrays with FC-NVMe

    Please join us on August 29th for this advanced, deep dive on FC-NVMe.

  • Create Hybrid Cloud Stretched Clusters Using VMware, AWS, and SDS
    Create Hybrid Cloud Stretched Clusters Using VMware, AWS, and SDS Chris Kranz, Solutions Architect, Hedvig Recorded: Aug 15 2017 43 mins
    Enterprises are evolving their vSphere environments from standard DR configurations to high availability (HA) architectures. VMware vSphere Metro Storage Cluster is a key capability in this evolution. Parallel to this, companies are embracing hybrid cloud and AWS in particular. In many cases enterprises treat AWS as a passive DR site. But what if you could evolve AWS to be part of an HA stretch cluster? That’s where software-defined storage (SDS) comes in.

    SDS solutions provide the flexibility to run on commodity servers as well as cloud computing instances. Couple that with advanced multi-site replication, per-VM storage policies, deduplication, snapshotting, cloning, and VMware’s recent announcement with AWS, and SDS is now the ideal enabler for automated failover in a hybrid cloud stretched cluster.

    In this session we’ll:
    - Provide an architecture for software-defined storage running a stretched cluster between a private vSphere cloud and AWS.
    - Discuss how this provides seamless failover, HA, DR, and cloud bursting—all at scale.
    - Highlight how data efficiency techniques like deduplication, thin provisioning, auto-tiering, and caching optimize hybrid cloud economics.

  • 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.

    Join SNIA experts, Arthur Sainio, SNIA NVDIMM SIG Co-chair, Chad Thibodeau, SNIA Cloud Storage member and Alex McDonald Co-chair of SNIA Solid State Storage and SNIA Cloud Storage Initiatives to find out what customers, storage developers, and the industry want to see to fully unlock the potential of persistent memory in a container environment.
  • The State of Cloud Security
    The State of Cloud Security Eric Hibbard, Hitachi Data Systems, Mark Carlson, Co-Chair SNIA Tech Council, Toshiba Recorded: Jul 20 2017 63 mins
    Standards organizations like SNIA are in the vanguard of describing cloud concepts and usage, and (as you might expect) are leading on how and where security fits in this new world of dispersed and publicly stored and managed data. In this webcast, SNIA experts Eric Hibbard and Mark Carlson will take us through a discussion of existing cloud and emerging technologies (such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Analytics & Big Data, and so on) – and explain how we’re describing and solving the significant security concerns these technologies are creating. They will discuss emerging ISO/IEC standards, SLA frameworks and security and privacy certifications. This webcast will be of interest to managers and acquirers of cloud storage (whether internal or external), and developers of private and public cloud solutions who want to know more about security and privacy in the cloud.

    Topics covered will include:

    Summary of the standards developing organization (SDO) activities:
    - Work on cloud concepts, CDMI, an SLA framework, and cloud security & privacy
    Securing the Cloud Supply Chain:
    - Outsourcing and cloud security; Cloud Certifications (FedRAMP, CSA STAR)
    Emerging & Related Technologies:
    - Virtualization/Containers, Federation, Big Data/Analytics in the Cloud, IoT and the Cloud
  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage: Programming & Networking Had a Baby
    Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage: Programming & Networking Had a Baby Rob Peglar, Symbolic IO, J Metz, Cisco, Alex McDonald, NetApp, Dror Goldenberg, Mellanox Recorded: Jul 6 2017 59 mins
    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!
