  • 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!

  • Best practice guidelines and IoT network security compliance
    Best practice guidelines and IoT network security compliance Richard Marshall, Plenary Chair at Internet of Things Security Foundation Recorded: Jun 15 2017 46 mins
    The IoT represents a significant challenge for companies new to supplying connected products and in particular the associated security implications. Traditionally security was often seen as something that was firmly in the domain of the IT or related department. However, with IoT systems being dependant upon a variety of sensors and embedded devices, the impact of supplying secure IoT products spans the whole of the company business; from the supply chain to how an organisation handles vulnerability disclosure. This session will go through some of the challenges that face businesses delivering secure IoT products and the guidance available to help companies take secure IoT products to market and having launched them, ensuring that they are able to support them from a security perspective.
  • IoT-Enabled Smart Mobility: Hype or Reality?
    IoT-Enabled Smart Mobility: Hype or Reality? Srinivasan Ramaswamy, Co-Founder & CEO, Bambucluster Recorded: Jun 14 2017 62 mins
    Urban mobility has always been about moving people from location to location through motorized personal or public transport. However, the proliferation of sensors, smartphones and intelligent high bandwidth networks are compelling towns & cities around the world to re-think urban mobility and consider technology enablers to drive towards a vision of “smart” mobility. Furthermore, the fundamental assumptions underpinning mobility are being challenged.

    The Internet Of Things (IoT) has been touted as a promising technology enabler to deliver on a vision of smart mobility. We will examine the current state of IoT ecosystems, IoT enabled smart mobility efforts across the globe and help delineate the architectural considerations and cross-industry industry collaboration that would be essential to successfully deliver on smart mobility initiatives. A simple use case around a town/city smart mobility service will be used to illustrate our approach.
  • IoT-Powered Smart Cities: Lower Costs; Engaged Citizens; Sustainable Economy?
    IoT-Powered Smart Cities: Lower Costs; Engaged Citizens; Sustainable Economy? Gordon Feller, Co-Founder, Meeting of the Minds Recorded: Jun 14 2017 61 mins
    Creating smarter cities requires urban infrastructures that accelerates the transition to a smarter city. This is a project that requires much more than connected technologies.

    Emerging innovations will be critical, as will engaged businesses and citizens — and together these change-agents are reshaping the city. Such new tools are radically altering our urban assets (water, energy, transport, buildings); shifting the ways that we design and use such systems; transforming our economies; disrupting our societies. Smart and connected urban infrastructure is now a reality, and autonomous vehicles driving themselves is only one of visible elements . Smarter policies that match the smarter tech makes possible the multimodal / integrated transportation systems which provide commuters with more options; the data analytics which manage the flows inside data-powered energy and water grids. Hyper-efficient cities should be much more than hyper-productive; they must be more livable and more equitable.

    Gordon Feller will provide a few glimpses around the corners, with a clear-eyed view of urban futures which are emergent.
  • Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage: Getting from Here to There
    Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage: Getting from Here to There Chad Hintz, Cisco, Fred Zhang, Intel, John Kim, Mellanox, Alex McDonald, NetApp Recorded: May 9 2017 58 mins
    As part of the successful “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask” series, we’ve discussed numerous topics about storage devices, protocols, and networks. As we examine some of these topics further, we begin to tease out some subtle nuances; subtle, yet important nevertheless.

    In Part Sepia, we’re going to take a look at some of the terms and concepts that affect Storage Architectures as a whole. In particular, we’ll be looking at those aspects that can help or hinder storage systems inside the network:

    •Encapsulation versus Tunneling
    •IOPS vs Latency vs Jitter
    •Quality of Service (QoS)

    Each of these topics has a profound impact on storage designs and performance, but they are often misunderstood. We’re going to help you become clear on all of these very important storage concepts so that you can grok storage just a little bit more.

  • Architectural Principles for Networked Solid State Storage Access  - Part 2
    Architectural Principles for Networked Solid State Storage Access - Part 2 Doug Voigt, Chair SNIA NVM Programming Model, HPE, J Metz, SNIA Board of Directors, Cisco Recorded: Apr 19 2017 62 mins
    New solid state storage technologies are forcing the industry to refine distinctions between networks and other types of system interconnects. The question on everyone’s mind is, when is it beneficial to use networks to access solid state storage, particularly persistent memory? The answer to this question involves application, interconnect, memory technology and scalability factors that can be analyzed in the context of a latency budget. In this talk we will explore latency budgets for various types of solid state storage access. These can be used to determine which combinations of interconnects, technologies and scales are compatible with Load/Store instruction access and which are better suited to IO completion techniques such as polling or blocking. In this webcast you’ll learn:

    •Why latency is important in accessing solid state storage
    •How to determine the appropriate use of networking in the context of a latency budget
    •Do’s and don’ts for Load/Store access
