  • How Scale-Out Storage Enables the Next Frontier of Life Sciences Breakthroughs
    How Scale-Out Storage Enables the Next Frontier of Life Sciences Breakthroughs Joel Groen & Dave Kaminsky Recorded: Apr 26 2017 17 mins
    Workflows in life sciences and bioinformatics are characterized by massive volumes of machine-generated file data that is pipelined into downstream processes for analysis. With today’s sequencer technology, most experts agree that about 100 GB of data is generated for each human genome that is sequenced.

    With the Earth’s population predicted to eclipse 8 billion people by 2025, some researchers believe that Life Sciences and Genomics in particular will soon become the single largest producer of new data across all media types — outpacing today’s leaders like YouTube, Twitter, and astronomical research.

    Legacy file storage fails to provide researchers with acceptable performance and cost effectiveness at petabyte scale, especially with the wide mix of file sizes that characterizes modern research workflows.

    But it’s not all bad news.

    Balancing researcher, IT, and executive team concerns, watch this video case study about the Department of Embryology at the Carnegie Institution for Science, and see why they turned to Qumulo’s modern scale-out storage to deliver the performance, scalability, and simplicity needed to keep pace with evolving research data requirements.

  • Augmented & Mixed Reality: Who is Watching Whom?
    Augmented & Mixed Reality: Who is Watching Whom? Monique J. Morrow, CTO, Chief Technology Strategist, President & Co-Founder, Humanized Internet Recorded: Apr 25 2017 43 mins
    A mixed-reality world driven by intelligent systems would have to be observing behavior and sensing physical phenomena continuously in order to provide individuals with appropriate content. Is that a sensible trade-off or a dance with the devil?

    Does the sensing possible with these technologies allow for ways to level the playing field or does it exacerbate existing power inequities? If the AI-enabled world of the future is monetized with personal data, then surveillance might well be baked into the system, but the ethical issues we see today will only be amplified in an immersive environment.

    Join this discussion with Monique Morrow, CTO & Chief Technology Strategist, President & Co-Founder of the Humanized Internet, for an in-depth look at what a true MR/AR/VR world means.

  • Going Beyond His/tory: The Female Storytellers Shaping Immersive Tech
    Going Beyond His/tory: The Female Storytellers Shaping Immersive Tech Luciana Carvalho, VR Evangelist Recorded: Apr 25 2017 48 mins
    Humans have shared gathered around and communicated through stories throughout history. Text, pictures, images and videos have sought to capture our imagination, or portray the non-fictional in a relatable way. Now, as we move beyond the 2D flat screen to new ways of interacting/communicating with the world — virtual and augmented reality, for example — we begin to see the power of immersion in storytelling, and the impact it has, beyond anything we have ever seen, on those in the receiving end. Arguably, the ultimate empathy machine.

    As we shape the next 'Information Age', and given the state of the world today, never before have we been in more need of putting ourselves in other people’s shoes, and empowering diverse and inclusive voices worldwide. Never before have we seen more women jump at the opportunity to lead and make content that is all-encompassing, that touches and inspires, and that aims to build bridges not walls. Here is their story.

    Learner, maker, systems thinker, innovator and tech evangelist, Luciana splits her time between growing the Realities Centre London — a new innovation space, incubator and academy for B2B/enterprise VR, AR, MR and AI — and Unfold UK, promoting women/diversity in future in the UK. Passionate about VR and tech for good, she carries ongoing research on the possibilities and challenges immersive tech presents as re neuroscience, empathy and female empowerment.

    She was elected one of Code First Girls ‘25 Ones to Watch’, 'Top 5 Female Role Models in the Tech Industry', and Virtual Perceptions' 'Heroes of VR' in 2016.

  • Benefits of Machine Learning in IT Infrastructure
    Benefits of Machine Learning in IT Infrastructure Dan Ortega - Vice President of Marketing Recorded: Apr 21 2017 4 mins
    During the next 5 years, machine learning is poised to play a pivotal and transformational role in how IT Infrastructure is managed. Two key scenarios are possible: transforming infrastructure from a set of under-utilized capital assets to a highly efficient set of operational resources through dynamic provisioning based on consumption; and the identification of configurations, dependencies and the cause/effect of usage patterns through correlation analysis.
    In the world of IT infrastructure, it’s all about efficient use of resources. With on-premise infrastructure (compute, storage and network) utilization rates for most organizations in the low single digits, the cloud has sold the promise of a breakthrough. For those organizations moving to Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), utilization in the middle to high teens is possible, and for those moving to Platform as a Service (PaaS), utilization in the mid-twenties is within reach.
    Dynamic provisioning driven by demand is essentially the same operational concept as power grids and municipal water systems – capacity allocation driven by where resources are consumed, rather than where they are produced.
    The second part of the breakthrough relates to right-sizing infrastructure. Whether this is network capacity or compute Virtual Machine size – machine learning will enable analysis of the patterns of behavior by users and correlate them to the consumption of infrastructure resources.
    During the near term, these benefits will be much more tactical. Automated discovery combined with behavioral correlation analysis will virtually eliminate the need for manual inventory and mapping of components and configuration items in the IT ecosystem to reveal how the ecosystem is operating.
    Today, IT has the opportunity to automate the mapping of components in their infrastructure to provide a more accurate and actionable picture.

  • Privileged accounts: the most powerful backdoor used by hackers
    Privileged accounts: the most powerful backdoor used by hackers Grant Burst and Chad Carter Apr 27 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Privileged accounts can be some of the most serious threats your company can face. As more and more processes are digitalized and activities externalized, the number of accounts accessing critical and strategic information escalates, extending the cyber threat across continents. Meanwhile, companies and individuals are becoming increasingly aware that any data or server can be accessed with the right privileges; it is therefore imperative to know who accesses critical resources, as well as when and why they do so to avoid any leak. By monitoring the users holding the keys to the kingdom - the privileged users, we are able to know what exactly happened on a system at any given time and how. Whether malicious or negligent, incidents caused by internal or external threats can be avoided quickly if visibility over the IS is restored. Session monitoring and recording dissuades malicious or negligent users while offering real-time alerts, traceability, and post-mortem analysis. Discover how some of the most dramatic cyberattacks to date could have been prevented had there been a Privileged Access Management solution in place to protect and secure target systems.
