  • Networking Requirements for Scale-Out Storage
    Networking Requirements for 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

  • Keeping Costs Under Control When Processing Big Data in the Cloud
    Keeping Costs Under Control When Processing Big Data in the Cloud
    Amit Duvedi and Balaji Mohanam, Qubole Recorded: Nov 13 2018 48 mins
    The biggest mistake businesses make when spending on data processing services in the cloud is in assuming that cloud will lower their overall cost. While the cloud has the potential to offer better economics both in the short and long-term, the bursty nature of big data processing requires following cloud engineering best practices, such as upscaling and downscaling infrastructure and leveraging the spot market for best pricing, to realize such economics.

    Businesses also fail to appreciate the potential of runaway costs in a 100% variable cost environment, something they rarely have to worry about in a fixed cost on-premise environment. In the absence of financial governance, companies leave themselves vulnerable to cost overruns where even a single rogue query can result in tens of thousands of dollars in unbudgeted spend.

    In this webinar you’ll learn how to:

    - Identify areas of cost optimization to drive maximum performance for the lowest TCO
    - Monitor total costs at the application, user, and account level
    - Provide admins the ability to control and design the infrastructure spend
    - Automatically optimize clusters for lower infrastructure spend based on custom-defined parameters

  • Crafting a Next-Generation Enterprise Architecture
    Crafting a Next-Generation Enterprise Architecture
    Johna Till Johnson, CEO & Founder, Nemertes Research Nov 27 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 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!
  • Mission Leads, Technology Follows
    Mission Leads, Technology Follows
    Jeff Cherrington, VP, Product Management, Systems, ASG Technologies Nov 27 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Technology serves business and people. Business serves people - not technology. Having a perfectly tuned mainframe, server, virtual, or cloud technology stack won’t provide your business with value – only the ability to leverage the technology to focus on business outcomes will add that insight.

    As Gartner wrote in its Insights from the 2018 CIO Agenda Report, “The CIO role is changing from IT-outcome-focused to business-outcome-focused." Does your enterprise support this view?

    In this session, find out what you should be looking for from software products and the vendors supplying them to ensure you can focus on mission critical processes, and less on the underlying technology.
