    What NVMe™/TCP Means for Networked Storage
    Sagi Grimberg, Lightbits; J Metz, Cisco; Tom Reu, Chelsio Recorded: Jan 22 2019 63 mins
    In the storage world, NVMe™ is arguably the hottest thing going right now. Go to any storage conference – either vendor- or vendor-neutral, and you’ll see NVMe as the latest and greatest innovation. It stands to reason, then, that when you want to run NVMe over a network, you need to understand NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF).

    TCP – the long-standing mainstay of networking – is the newest transport technology to be approved by the NVM Express organization. This can mean really good things for storage and storage networking – but what are the tradeoffs?

    In this webinar, the lead author of the NVMe/TCP specification, Sagi Grimberg, and J Metz, member of the SNIA and NVMe Boards of Directors, will discuss:
    •What is NVMe/TCP
    •How NVMe/TCP works
    •What are the trade-offs?
    •What should network administrators know?
    •What kind of expectations are realistic?
    •What technologies can make NVMe/TCP work better?

    Don’t go down the recursive ML rabbit hole. View this 15-minute webcast to learn how you can tackle the challenges of successfully finding and matching data in large scale production implementations…

    When you pull in data from different sources across the enterprise, chances are that you have information about the same person, company, product, or other entity in multiple records. So you need to find all the records that relate and combine them. Sounds simple, but names are frequently misspelled or simply entered incorrectly, and you may have to compare each individual record to every other record in the dataset with some very sophisticated matching algorithms to determine who is who – and you may have to compare the data multiple times in multiple ways to resolve each entity.

    With large volumes of records in the data lake you may have to compare a million to a million (or 100 million to 100 million)! This kind of compute intensive comparison can bring even a powerful cluster to its knees, trying to code from scratch is nigh impossible, and some have resorted to starting a whole new ML project just to get entities resolved for other ML projects! Don’t go down the recursive ML rabbit hole. View this 15-minute webcast on-demand to find out how you can successfully tackle these challenges.

  • The Top 3 Considerations for Modernizing Your Data Platform
    The Top 3 Considerations for Modernizing Your Data Platform
    Clark Bradley, Solutions Engineer at Zaloni Recorded: Jan 16 2019 50 mins
    How does your organization collaborate with data? Aligning data management tasks across any size organization can be a challenge. This can be attributed to a lack of transparent data access, lack of big data skills, or antiquated toolsets that do not enable shared metadata for clear lineage of the data. Regardless of the reason, the results are slow, rigid decision-making processes.

    While modernizing your data architecture for more agility can seem overwhelming, with an integrated platform that enhances collaboration, organizations can reap the benefits of quality data that is well understood. The data platform should provide users with the ability to fully understand all aspects of the data with a simple, unified user interface where the business and IT can define, transform and provision the data. All while providing right-sized governance for access, security and auditability.

    Join Clark Bradley, Solutions Engineer with Zaloni, as he tackles modernizing your data platform and explains how your organization can expand collaborative practices with the Zaloni Data Platform.

    By the end of the presentation, you’ll be able to answer these questions:
    - Why is a data catalog important?
    - What do I need to know about data quality?
    - How does self-service play a role in the data strategy?

  • Western Digital’s Composable Infrastructure Vision
    Western Digital’s Composable Infrastructure Vision
    Dave Montgomery, Director, Storage Platforms Marketing Recorded: Jan 15 2019 33 mins
    The ‘general-purpose’ architectures that have served so well in the past are reaching their limits of scalability, performance and efficiency, typically using a uniform ratio of resources to address all compute processing, storage and network bandwidth requirements. As a result, the ‘one size fits all’ approach is no longer effective for data-intensive workloads. What is required for today’s data-centric architectures that address such diverse applications as big data, fast data, data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), are capabilities that enable more control over the blend of resources that each application needs so that optimized levels of processing, storage and network bandwidth can be scaled independent of one another, enabling both flexibility and composability.

    Composable Disaggregated Infrastructures (CDIs) are becoming a popular solution – delivering greatly improved TCO and addressing the inflexible nature of many current IT architectures. With a total market CAGR of 58.2% (forecasted from 2017 to 2022), CDIs treat physical compute, storage and network fabric resources as services and use an API to create a virtual application environment that provides whatever resources the application needs in real-time to meet workload demands.

    This webinar will cover the current economic pain-points of today’s IT infrastructures and introduce Western Digital’s OpenFlex™ line of composable infrastructure, fabric-attached storage products.
  • It doesn’t end with GDPR.
    It doesn’t end with GDPR.
    Sheila FitzPatrick President FitzPatrick & Associates, Patrick McGrath Digital Transformation Leader Commvault Recorded: Jan 15 2019 52 mins
    Companies raced to meet the May 2018 deadline to meet Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation with varying degrees of success, but if they learned anything since it is this: GDPR isn’t a one and done exercise. The GDPR might be the most eye-catching data privacy law on the books because of the outsized potential fine (up to 4% of revenue), but it is simply one of the first and most far-reaching such laws. Many more are emerging around the world and, indeed, in many US states. Some of the regulations overlap, while others conflict, meaning organizations face the ugly reality of having to deal with a patchwork quilt of laws.

    In this webinar we’ll examine:

    - Lessons learned to date
    - The key differences between the new regulations
    - Pain points companies are having (simply shutting off customers in
    the EU is not a sustainable practice)
    - Best approaches moving forward

    The most important cloud security trends in 2019
    Mike Wronski, Nutanix; Niel Ashworth, Nutanix; Demetrius Comes, GoDaddy Jan 24 2019 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    By 2020, 90 percent of businesses will have moved to a hybrid cloud infrastructure, seizing both the competitive advantages of digital evolution -- and the economic and strategic benefits of maintaining legacy applications on premises. But once your data moves outside your private architecture, you're facing a new world of potential attacks and security breaches that your current security practices just can't match.

    Just for starters, not only will you need to implement effective RBAC to lower risk of unauthorized access and enforce mandatory multi-factor authentication, you'll also have to tap into the power of automation to validate security compliance baselines, detect unauthorized cloud config changes, and power self-healing infrastructure. Additionally, application-centric security is a must, with real-time visibility into application dependencies and performance metrics, plus an automatic micro-segmented security policy enforcement, and more.

    To learn more about the advantages of hybrid cloud architectures, where your security needs shoring up, and how to best protect your enterprise and data with automated and application-centric security practices, don't miss this VB Live event!

    Data de-identification 101: Strategy, techniques and considerations
    Guy Cohen, Strategy & Policy Lead, Privitar Jan 28 2019 11:00 am UTC 30 mins
    (Data Privacy Day 2019)

    Every industry is undergoing a data driven revolution. The use of data is making companies innovate faster, make better informed business decisions, find efficiencies, and understand what their users want and how to deliver it for them.

    Often the data used is sensitive and personal, so a by-product of this greater use of data has been a growth in the risk to individuals’ privacy. Individuals and regulators are increasingly concerned and have started demanding better protection of individuals’ data. De-identifying data can reduce the privacy risk associated with processing it, whilst preserving much of the data’s utility, but effectively doing so can be a complex process and one of uncertainty for many organisations.

    This interactive session will explore some of the key considerations and best practices organisations should employ when looking to de-identify personal data.

    By attending this session, you’ll learn:

    -The key terms and concepts within data de-identification

    -Why it’s advisable to de-identify data

    -Key techniques to apply

    -How to manage de-identified data
