  • IDC Report: ROI Data Analysis of Converged Infrastructure IDC Report: ROI Data Analysis of Converged Infrastructure Eric Sheppard, Research Director - IDC Storage, Bob Madaio, VP - Infrastructure Solutions, Hitachi Data Systems Recorded: Jan 12 2017 53 mins
    Have you considered a move to converged infrastructure, but need to be convinced with solid return on investment (ROI) data? Respected industry analyst IDC interviewed global enterprises that use and rely on Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) to calculate its true business value. IDC found that each organization using this converged infrastructure earned an average return of 360% or about $32.7 million over a five-year period.

    The comprehensive independent analysis includes a breakdown of business benefits in four key areas and shows how a unified compute platform:

    •Increases business productivity with improved application performance, reduced provision time and faster time to market.
    •Improves risk mitigation and user productivity with a high level of resiliency, performance and efficiency.
    •Boosts IT staff productivity with decreased IT time to set up new infrastructure and launch new applications.
    •Reduces IT infrastructure costs for the provision and deployment of compute, storage and networking resources.

    Any organization that takes a moment to study the data on their primary storage system will quickly realize that the majority (as much as 90 percent) of data that is stored on it has not been accessed for months if not years. Moving this data to a secondary tier of storage could free up massive amount of capacity, eliminating a storage upgrade for years. Making this analysis frequently is called data management, and proper management of data can not only reduce costs it can improve data protection, retention and preservation.
  • Containers: Best Practices and Data Management Services Containers: Best Practices and Data Management Services Keith Hudgins, Tech Alliances, Docker, Andrew Sullivan, Tech Marketing Engineer, NetApp, Alex McDonald, Chair SNIA-CSI Recorded: Dec 7 2016 57 mins
    Now that you have become acquainted with basic container technologies and the associated storage challenges in supporting applications running within containers in production; let’s take a deeper dive into what differentiates this technology from what you are used to with virtual machines. Containers can both complement virtual machines and also replace them as they promise the ability to scale exponentially higher. They can easily be ported from one physical server to another or to one platform—such as on-premise—to another—such as public cloud providers like Amazon AWS. In this Webcast, we’ll explore “container best practices” that discuss how to address the various challenges around networking, security and logging. We’ll also look at what types of applications more easily lend themselves to a microservice architecture versus which applications may require additional investment to refactor/re-architect to take advantage of microservices.

    When the SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum (ESF) last looked at the Ethernet Roadmap for Networked Storage in 2015, we anticipated a world of rapid change. The list of advances in 2016 is nothing short of amazing:

    •New adapters, switches, and cables have been launched supporting 25, 50, and 100Gb Ethernet speeds including support from major server vendors and storage startups
    •Multiple vendors have added or updated support for RDMA over Ethernet
    •The growth of NVMe flash and release of the NVMe over Fabrics standard are driving demand for both faster speeds and lower latency in networking
    •The growth of cloud, virtualization, hyper-converged infrastructure, object storage, and containers are all increasing the popularity of Ethernet as a storage fabric

    The world of Ethernet in 2017 promises more of the same. Now we revisit the topic with a look ahead at what’s in store for Ethernet in 2017. With all the incredible advances and learning vectors, SNIA ESF is here to help you keep up. Here’s some of the things to keep track of in the upcoming year:
    •Learn what is driving the adoption of faster Ethernet speeds and new Ethernet storage models
    •Understand the different copper and optical cabling choices available at different speeds and distances
    •Debate how other connectivity options will compete against Ethernet for the new cloud and software-defined storage networks
    •And finally look ahead with us at what Ethernet is planning for new connectivity options and faster speeds such as 200 and 400 Gigabit Ethernet

    The momentum is strong with Ethernet, and we’re here to help you keep on top of the lightning-fast changes. Come join us to look at the future of Ethernet for storage and join the SNIA ESF webcast on December 1st register here.

    Organizations have more options than ever when it comes to deciding how and where to store their data. In an ideal world, low-cost high-speed storage would be nearly infinite. Practicality, however, demands that IT groups determine how best to leverage their own storage (including local, NAS and SAN options), and how cloud storage can fit into the overall architecture.

    This presentation will start with recommendations for classifying storage requirements based on various needs, ranging from lower-cost, long-term data archival to highly-available, fault-tolerant, geo-replicated architectures, along with the vast sea of data that's located in between these requirements. The focus will be on the many different ways organizations can leverage existing and new features in the Windows Server platform and the many available storage-related services in the Microsoft Azure cloud.

    Also covered will be information about building a private cloud architecture in your own datacenter, using the Microsoft Azure Stack, System Center, and related OS and cloud options.
