  • Will You Still Love Me When I Turn 64GFC?
    Will You Still Love Me When I Turn 64GFC?
    Dean Wallace, Marvell; Barry Maskas, HPE Recorded: Dec 11 2018 50 mins
    Fibre Channel’s speed roadmap defines a well-understood technological trend: the need to double the bit rate in the channel without doubling the required bandwidth.

    In order to do this, PAM4 (pulse-amplitude modulation, with four levels of pulse modulation), enters the Fibre Channel physical layer picture. With the use of four signal levels instead of two, and with each signal level corresponding to a two-bit symbol, the standards define 64GFC operation while maintaining backward compatibility with 32GFC and 16GFC.

    This advanced technical session will cover the T11 standards which define 64GFC serial Fibre Channel, backwards speed auto-negotiation compatibility, and compatible form factors:

    •New physical layer and specification challenges for PAM4, which includes eye openings, crosstalk sensitivity, and new test methodologies and parameters
    •Transceivers, their form factors, and how 64GFC maintains backward compatibility with multi-mode fibre cable deployments in the data center, including distance specifications
    •Discussion of protocol changes, and an overview of backward-compatible link speed and forward error correction (FEC) negotiation
    •The FCIA’s Fibre Channel speed roadmap and evolution, and new technologies under consideration

  • Crafting a Next-Generation Enterprise Architecture
    Crafting a Next-Generation Enterprise Architecture
    Johna Till Johnson, CEO & Founder, Nemertes Research Recorded: Nov 27 2018 46 mins
    Enterprise Architecture is dead. Long live Enterprise Architecture!

    In the face of DevOps and Agile development methodologies, many enterprises have backed off entirely from the concept of an enterprise architecture. That's a mistake. Enterprise Architecture is needed more urgently than ever before--but not the old, silo-ed, inflexible architecture.

    Next-generation Enterprise Architecture needs to be fast, flexible, and as adaptive as next-generation development methodologies. It needs to encompass the radical changes in infrastructure, from virtualization to cloud- and mobile-first.

    And it's absolutely essential for enterprises who want to align their technology investments with their fast-moving business goals.

    This webinar reviews the fundamentals of enterprise architecture and provides a blueprint for a next-generation EA that encompasses DevOps, cloud, mobility, virtualization, microservices, and more!
  • Networking Requirements for Ethernet Scale-Out Storage
    Networking Requirements for Ethernet Scale-Out Storage
    John Kim, Mellanox; Saqib Jang, Chelsio; Fred Zhang, Intel Recorded: Nov 14 2018 44 mins
    Scale-out storage is increasingly popular for cloud, high-performance computing, machine learning, and certain enterprise applications. It offers the ability to grow both capacity and performance at the same time and to distribute I/O workloads across multiple machines.

    But unlike traditional local or scale-up storage, scale-out storage imposes different and more intense workloads on the network. Clients often access multiple storage servers simultaneously; data typically replicates or migrates from one storage node to another; and metadata or management servers must stay in sync with each other as well as communicating with clients. Due to these demands, traditional network architectures and speeds may not work well for scale-out storage, especially when it’s based on flash. Join this webinar to learn:

    •Scale-out storage solutions and what workloads they can address
    •How your network may need to evolve to support scale-out storage
    •Network considerations to ensure performance for demanding workloads
    •Key considerations for all flash

  • Extending RDMA for Persistent Memory over Fabrics
    Extending RDMA for Persistent Memory over Fabrics
    Tony Hurson, Intel; Rob Davis, Mellanox; John Kim, Mellanox Recorded: Oct 25 2018 60 mins
    For datacenter applications requiring low-latency access to persistent storage, byte-addressable persistent memory (PM) technologies like 3D XPoint and MRAM are attractive solutions. Network-based access to PM, labeled here PM over Fabrics (PMoF), is driven by data scalability and/or availability requirements. Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) network protocols are a good match for PMoF, allowing direct RDMA Write of data to remote PM. However, the completion of an RDMA Write at the sending node offers no guarantee that data has reached persistence at the target. This webcast will outline extensions to RDMA protocols that confirm such persistence and additionally can order successive writes to different memories within the target system.

    The primary target audience is developers of low-latency and/or high-availability datacenter storage applications. The presentation will also be of broader interest to datacenter developers, administrators and users.

  • Flash Storage with 24G SAS Leads the Way in Crunching Big Data
    Flash Storage with 24G SAS Leads the Way in Crunching Big Data
    Greg McSorley, Amphenol; Rick Kutcipal, Broadcom; Kevin Marks, Dell; Jeremiah Tussey, Microsemi Recorded: Oct 24 2018 49 mins
    The recent data explosion is a huge challenge for storage and IT system designers. How do you crunch all that data at a reasonable cost? Fortunately, your familiar SAS comes to the rescue with its new 24G speed. Its flexible connection scheme already allows designers to scale huge external storage systems with low latency. Now the new high operating speed offers the throughput you need to bring big data to its knobby knees! Our panel of storage experts will present practical solutions to today’s petabyte problems and beyond.
