For over three decades, Ethernet has advanced on a simple “powers-of-ten” speed increases, and this model has served the industry well. Ethernet is changing in big ways and the Ethernet Alliance has captured the latest changes in the 2015 Ethernet Roadmap. SNIA is pleased to welcome Scott Kipp, President of the Ethernet Alliance and David Chalupsky, Chair IEEE P802.3bq/bz TFs and the Ethernet Alliance BASE-T Subcommittee to present the Ethernet Alliance’s 2015 Ethernet Roadmap for the networking technology that underlies most of future network storage.
SNIA has focused on protocols and usage models and more or less just takes Ethernet for granted. The biggest technology disruption in the storage space is the emergence into the mainstream of Non-Volatile Memory (NVM), FLASH in particular. NVM increasingly moves system bottlenecks from the storage subsystem to the network. Developments in NVM -- most recently 3D FLASH -- assure that the cost per GB will continue aggressive declines and demand for bandwidth will go up. NVM will become more prevalent, making the roadmap for Ethernet increasingly more important to the storage networking community.
CIOs and IT managers today need to make a number of difficult choices. The combination of social, mobile, analytics and cloud in particular has been problematic.

Network functions virtualization (NFV) and cloud computing are the next generation of network-based computing, since they can deliver both software and hardware as on-demand resources. While this represents a transformation towards a much-needed flexible software-driven infrastructure, one of the significant concerns with this transformation is security.
In this web seminar, we discuss network security in a virtualized environment focusing on these key points:
•How to virtualize security applications, such as IPS/IDS, in a way that scales linearly while maintaining performance.
•Real-world use-case examples of security virtualization highlighting the challenges and corresponding solutions.
•A review of virtual machine architectures based on the Intel® Architecture coupled with key enabling technologies, such as Hyperscan pattern matching, used to drive the scale and performance of industry-leading IPS/IDS use-cases such as Suricata.
In this presentation we will examine real cases that show how vulnerable cloud and virtual environments can be without the correct controls. You will see how easily controls can be bypassed and compromised, why software keys are simply not good enough, and how your personal life threatens your business and work life. Join us on July 8th to learn what we call, unsharing your data.
