  • The Emerging Impact of NVMe-oF and Storage Class Memory
    The Emerging Impact of NVMe-oF and Storage Class Memory Jeff Kato, Senior Analyst & Consultant, Taneja Group Recorded: Oct 17 2017 61 mins
    Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss the latest—and potentially most game-changing—technology disruptors to traditional storage architectures since flash: NVMe over fabric and Storage Class Memory.

    It was just five years ago that Flash technology transformed the traditional storage market forever. Modern flash-first arrays are now the new normal for traditional storage. Will a new shared storage access protocol called NVM express over Fabric (NVMe-oF) combined with the advent of storage class memory (SCM) be equally disruptive to traditional storage over the next five years as NAND flash technology was in the past?

    Vendors are now announcing new products and future architectures to enable them to support these new technologies. With the help of a lively panel of experts from HPE, Pivot3, and Mellanox, we will unpack this topic and explore how their innovative approaches to leveraging Storage Class Memory and NVMe-oF can radically improve storage products and solutions.

  • Accelerate the BusDevOps Cycle with Storyteller and HPE ALM
    Accelerate the BusDevOps Cycle with Storyteller and HPE ALM Susan D'Angelo Recorded: Sep 21 2017 52 mins
    Agile works well for small, co-located teams that can hover around sticky notes on a Kanban board, and collaborate on-demand. But as initiatives become more complex, and teams become dispersed, Agile can be difficult to scale across the enterprise.

    What’s missing in Agile practices today is the ability to see the whole picture. With user stories as the source of record for an application, it’s hard to connect all the dots to see the complete functionality of a feature or capability. Think about the new team who will be developing additional features on that capability - where can they learn everything it does today? How will they know the impact their changes will have on that capability or potentially other capabilities? How will they collaborate on those changes and get them reviewed in a timely manner? How will your business stakeholder understand the impact of new those changes to the overall business process? Storyteller provides a centralized reusable searchable repository of exiting business and technical process models and requirements (business, non-functional and regulatory). In addition we also offer rich visualization, collaboration and review functionalities. These base capabilities are being used today to address the questions above. And - we do it in a way that everyone can understand from Business Stakeholders down to developers and testers.

    Storyteller is a key player in Enterprise Agile. We bridge the business gaps in the current agile process. For companies struggling with Agile Transformation, we providing guardrails around writing user stories and feature decomposition. Project teams can save time and effort by using our user story and test plan generation which can them be automatically synched over to ALM tools. We are also a key player in the BizDevOps chain by providing that upfront business alignment so what is produced though “Dev” and delivered and maintained by “Ops” is exactly what “Biz” wanted.

  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage-Turquoise: Where Does My Data Go
    Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage-Turquoise: Where Does My Data Go Rob Peglar, Symbolic IO, Scott Shadley, Micron, J Metz, Cisco, Chad Hintz, Cisco Recorded: Aug 1 2017 61 mins
    In this, the seventh entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” popular webcast series we look into the mysticism and magic of what happens when you send your data off into the wilderness. Once you click “save,” for example, where does it actually go?

    When we start to dig deeper beyond the application layer, we often don’t understand what happens behind the scenes. It’s important to understand multiple aspects of the type of storage our data goes to along with their associated benefits and drawbacks as well as some of the protocols used to transport it.

    In this webcast we will show you more about the following:

    •Volatile v Non-Volatile v Persistent Memory
    •NVDIMM v RAM v DRAM v SLC v MLC v TLC v NAND v 3D NAND v Flash v SSDs v NVMe
    •NVMe (the protocol)

    Many people get nervous when they see that many acronyms, but all too often they come up in conversation, and you’re expected to know all of them? Worse, you’re expected to know the differences between them, and the consequences of using them? Even worse, you’re expected to know what happens when you use the wrong one?

    We’re here to help.

    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.

    Please join us on August 1st for another edition of the “Too Proud To Ask” series, as we work towards making you feel more comfortable in the strange, mystical world of storage.

  • Rockin’ and Rollin’ with SMB3
    Rockin’ and Rollin’ with SMB3 Ned Pyle, SMB Program Manager, Microsoft, John Kim, SNIA-ESF Chair, Mellanox Recorded: Apr 5 2017 69 mins
    Server Message Block (SMB) is the core file-transfer protocol of Windows, MacOS and Samba, and has become widely deployed. It’s ubiquitous - a 30-year-old family of network code.

    However, the latest iteration of SMB3 is almost unrecognizable when compared to versions only a few years old. Extensive reengineering has led to advanced capabilities that include multichannel, transparent failover, scale out, and encryption. SMB Direct makes use of RDMA networking, creates block transport system and provides reliable transport to zetabytes of unstructured data, worldwide.

    SMB3 forms the basis of hyper-converged and scale-out systems for virtualization and SQL Server. It is available for a variety of hardware devices, from printers, network-attached storage appliances, to Storage Area Networks (SANs). It is often the most prevalent protocol on a network, with high-performance data transfers as well as efficient end-user access over wide-area connections.

    In this SNIA-ESF Webcast, Microsoft’s Ned Pyle, program manager of the SMB protocol, will discuss the current state of SMB, including:

    •Brief background on SMB
    •An overview of the SMB 3.x family, first released with Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, MacOS 10.10, Samba 4.1, and Linux CIFS 3.12
    •What changed in SMB 3.1.1
    •Understanding SMB security, scenarios, and workloads
    •The deprecation and removal of the legacy SMB1 protocol
    •How SMB3 supports hyperconverged and scale-out storage
