  • Cloud Mobility and Data Movement
    Cloud Mobility and Data Movement Eric Lakin, University of Michigan; Michelle Tidwell, IBM; Alex McDonald, NetApp Recorded: Aug 7 2018 60 mins
    We’re increasingly in a multi-cloud environment, with potentially multiple private, public and hybrid cloud implementations in support of a single enterprise. Organizations want to leverage the agility of public cloud resources to run existing workloads without having to re-plumb or re-architect them and their processes. In many cases, applications and data have been moved individually to the public cloud. Over time, some applications and data might need to be moved back on premises, or moved partially or entirely from one cloud to another.

    That means simplifying the movement of data from cloud to cloud. Data movement and data liberation – the seamless transfer of data from one cloud to another – has become a major requirement.

    In this webcast, we’re going to explore some of these data movement and mobility issues with real-world examples from the University of Michigan. Register now for discussions on:

    •How do we secure data both at-rest and in-transit?
    •Why is data so hard to move? What cloud processes and interfaces should we use to make data movement easier?
    •How should we organize our data to simplify its mobility? Should we use block, file or object technologies?
    •Should the application of the data influence how (and even if) we move the data?
    •How can data in the cloud be leveraged for multiple use cases?

  • FCoE vs. iSCSI vs. iSER
    FCoE vs. iSCSI vs. iSER J Metz, Cisco; Saqib Jang, Chelsio; Rob Davis, Mellanox; Tim Lustig, Mellanox Recorded: Jun 21 2018 62 mins
    The “Great Storage Debates” webcast series continues, this time on FCoE vs. iSCSI vs. iSER. Like past “Great Storage Debates,” the goal of this presentation is not to have a winner emerge, but rather provide vendor-neutral education on the capabilities and use cases of these technologies so that attendees can become more informed and make educated decisions.

    One of the features of modern data centers is the ubiquitous use of Ethernet. Although many data centers run multiple separate networks (Ethernet and Fibre Channel (FC)), these parallel infrastructures require separate switches, network adapters, management utilities and staff, which may not be cost effective.

    Multiple options for Ethernet-based SANs enable network convergence, including FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) which allows FC protocols over Ethernet and Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) for transport of SCSI commands over TCP/IP-Ethernet networks. There are also new Ethernet technologies that reduce the amount of CPU overhead in transferring data from server to client by using Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA), which is leveraged by iSER (iSCSI Extensions for RDMA) to avoid unnecessary data copying.

    That leads to several questions about FCoE, iSCSI and iSER:

    •If we can run various network storage protocols over Ethernet, what
    differentiates them?
    •What are the advantages and disadvantages of FCoE, iSCSI and iSER?
    •How are they structured?
    •What software and hardware do they require?
    •How are they implemented, configured and managed?
    •Do they perform differently?
    •What do you need to do to take advantage of them in the data center?
    •What are the best use cases for each?

    Join our SNIA experts as they answer all these questions and more on the next Great Storage Debate.

  • FICON 101
    FICON 101 Patty Driever, IBM; Howard Johnson, Broadcom; J Metz, Cisco Recorded: Jun 19 2018 62 mins
    FICON (Fibre Channel Connection) is an upper-level protocol supported by mainframe servers and attached enterprise-class storage controllers that utilize Fibre Channel as the underlying transport. Mainframes are built to provide a robust and resilient IT infrastructure, and FICON is a key element of their ability to meet the increasing demands placed on reliable and efficient access to data. What are some of the key objectives and benefits of the FICON protocol? And what are the characteristics that make FICON relevant in today’s data centers for mission-critical workloads?

    Join us in this live FCIA webcast where you’ll learn:

    • Basic mainframe I/O terminology
    • The characteristics of mainframe I/O and FICON architecture
    • Key features and benefits of FICON

  • How to Limit Damage from Cyber Attacks with BCDR & SDS
    How to Limit Damage from Cyber Attacks with BCDR & SDS Garry Carpenter Recorded: Jun 7 2018 21 mins
    Join us for this 45 minute webinar on 7th June at 10am UK that will ensure that your Business is Seamlessly Up and Running in Minutes. Understand how Ultimate Damage Limitation for Cyber-Attacks is Achieved through Business Continuity within Software-Defined Storage.

    Reasons to attend:

    Severity of cyber-attacks are judged by the length of time critical systems, data and applications are down. The ability to have a Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery enabled infrastructure mitigates the risk, offering zero downtime, zero Recovery Point Objective, and seamless rollback in time to the point before the attack hits.

    Joining the webinar equips you with 3 essential skills for damage limitation:

    Learn how to:

    * Implement multi layered protection that offers
    * Achieve additional resiliency with disaster recovery to the Cloud and 3rd Site
    * Rollback to the point immediately before the attack

    Your host for the meeting, Garry Carpenter has immersed himself in all things business continuity for the past few decades and is one of the leading UK authorities in the field.
  • Everything You Wanted To Know...But Were Too Proud To Ask - Storage Controllers
    Everything You Wanted To Know...But Were Too Proud To Ask - Storage Controllers Peter Onufryk, Microsemi, Craig Carlson, Cavium, Chad Hintz, Cisco, John Kim, Mellanox, J Metz, Cisco Recorded: May 15 2018 48 mins
    Are you a control freak? Have you ever wondered what was the difference between a storage controller, a RAID controller, a PCIe Controller, or a metadata controller? What about an NVMe controller? Aren’t they all the same thing?

    In part Aqua of the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask” webcast series, we’re going to be taking an unusual step of focusing on a term that is used constantly, but often has different meanings. When you have a controller that manages hardware, there are very different requirements than a controller that manages an entire system-wide control plane. From the outside looking in, it may be easy to get confused. You can even have controllers managing other controllers!
    Here we’ll be revisiting some of the pieces we talked about in Part Chartreuse [https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/663/215131], but with a bit more focus on the variety we have to play with:
    •What do we mean when we say “controller?”
    •How are the systems being managed different?
    •How are controllers used in various storage entities: drives, SSDs, storage networks, software-defined
    •How do controller systems work, and what are the trade-offs?
    •How do storage controllers protect against Spectre and Meltdown?
    Join us to learn more about the workhorse behind your favorite storage systems.
