  • Introducing Fibre Channel NVMe Introducing Fibre Channel NVMe Craig Carlson, FCIA Board of Directors, Cavium, J Metz, FCIA Board of Directors, Cisco Recorded: Feb 16 2017 58 mins
    NVMe is one of the most interesting new developments to happen to storage in the past several years, and NVMe over Fabrics extends these capabilities over a Storage Area Network. Given that 80% of all existing Flash storage solutions deployed are interconnected with Fibre Channel (FC), many questions have arisen about what it is, how it works, and why someone might want to consider using Fibre Channel for NVMe-based solutions.

    In this technical webinar, we’re going to be addressing some of these fundamental questions:

    - How does Fibre Channel and NVMe work together?
    - How is NVMe over Fabrics different from “traditional” Fibre Channel?
    - What changes do I have to make to my Fibre Channel environment in order to get NVMe over Fabrics to work?
    - What would an NVMe over Fibre Channel (FC-NVMe) architecture look like?
    - What advantages would I get using Fibre Channel in an NVMe solution?

    Check out this live webinar to learn more about this exciting new technology from the people who are developing it.
  • Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask: Buffering Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask: Buffering John Kim & Rob Davis, Mellanox, Mark Rogov, Dell EMC, Dave Minturn, Intel Recorded: Feb 14 2017 64 mins
    Buffers, Queues, and Caches, oh my! Buffers and Queues are part of every data center architecture, and a critical part of performance – both in improving it as well as hindering it. A well-implemented buffer can mean the difference between a finely run system and a confusing nightmare of troubleshooting. Knowing how buffers and queues work in storage can help make your storage system shine.

    However, there is something of a mystique surrounding these different data center components, as many people don’t realize just how they’re used and why. In this pod of the “Too Proud To Ask” series, we’re going to be demystifying this very important aspect of data center storage. You’ll learn:

    •What are buffers, caches, and queues, and why you should care about the differences?
    •What’s the difference between a read cache and a write cache?
    •What does “queue depth” mean?
    •What’s a buffer, a ring buffer, and host memory buffer, and why does it matter?
    •What happens when things go wrong?

    These are just some of the topics we’ll be covering, and while it won’t be exhaustive look at buffers, caches and queues, you can be sure that you’ll get insight into this very important, and yet often overlooked, part of storage design.

  • IT Operations and Real-Time Performance Monitoring: Keys to Efficient Healthcare IT Operations and Real-Time Performance Monitoring: Keys to Efficient Healthcare John Smith, Principle Solutions Architect from ExtraHop, Darren Carr, Sr. Technology Architect, from Cerner Recorded: Jan 12 2017 49 mins
    Modern Healthcare IT infrastructures are a complex blend of technologies, from mission-critical Electronic Health Record (EHR) applications to the security solutions protecting patient data from ransomware and other threats. Overseeing an entire healthcare system's networks and infrastructure, as well as managing patient data in a private cloud, can be time consuming, costly and pose potential cybersecurity threats and data breaches. That’s why fast, reliable IT is crucial to every step of the patient’s journey through your organization—and why you need a new approach to IT operations and monitoring.

    Learn where your visibility gaps lie, and how closing those gaps with real-time performance monitoring will dramatically improve the quality of care and IT security that your organization provides.

However, finding the right fit for hyperconverged in existing IT environments poses a challenge for many organizations.

    Join 451 Research to understand the drivers behind hyperconverged adoption and learn how IT teams are using this technology to boost their business advantage.
  • Monitor with Discipline – Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Unlocked Monitor with Discipline – Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Unlocked Kong Yang, Head Geek of Virtualization & Cloud Practice, SolarWinds Recorded: Dec 8 2016 33 mins
    Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) brings together all the primary tech constructs such as compute, memory, network and storage. HCI provides IT pros consistency in the form of infrastructure building blocks. As an IT professional, this removes the barrier to consume; but it presents challenges that move up the application stack.

    In this session, we will discuss how to monitor HCI with discipline.
    ·How do I manage applications efficiently and effectively on HCI?

    ·How do I put into practice skills and techniques that delivers acceptable Quality-of-Service (QoS) and success in an HCI environment?
