    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).

  • Want Better Network Visibility with Less Complexity? Here's How!
    Want Better Network Visibility with Less Complexity? Here's How!
    Bob Laliberte, Senior Analyst, ESG and Sam Kumarsamy, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Gigamon Recorded: Jan 22 2019 54 mins
    Enable IT Collaboration with a Common Distributed Data Services Layer.

    The IT environment is rapidly changing, becoming more distributed and complex as organizations transform themselves to provide better digital experiences. Because these improved experiences will be more dependent on the network, it’s imperative for organizations to properly plan and prepare now to eliminate security blind spots. The bottom line is that companies need complete visibility into their physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure to detect and contain data breaches and mitigate risk.

    To accomplish this, successful organizations resist the legacy mentality that relies on more people and more tools at every location. Instead, they are turning to a new architectural approach that disaggregates the speed of the network from the speed of the tools inspecting traffic on that network. This innovative approach allows enterprises to absorb change in network speed and technology without compromising security.

    ESG believes the foundational step in this approach is to ensure comprehensive infrastructure visibility across data centers and distributed edge and cloud environments. To do this, organizations must have a common distributed data services layer that can collect, process and distribute the right information to the right tools at the right time.

    Join us to learn how a consolidated network architecture that includes security delivers better visibility, reduces complexity and increases tool efficiency.

  • Data Centre Design in the Era of Multi-Cloud: IT Transformation Drivers
    Data Centre Design in the Era of Multi-Cloud: IT Transformation Drivers
    Simon Ratcliffe, Principal Consultant, Ensono Jan 24 2019 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    IT Transformation projects are usually driven by the need to reduce complexity, improve
    agility, simplify systems, contain costs, manage ever-growing data and provide more efficient
    operational management. Arguably, for seasoned IT professionals, there is nothing new
    about the drivers for transformational change; it’s the velocity and scale of transformation
    today that’s the big challenge.

    Today, to effectively accelerate business innovation, successful IT leaders are building
    infrastructure that focuses on automation and flexibility, supporting agile application
    development and helping deliver world-class customer experience. Of course, IT teams are
    still under pressure to deliver legacy, mission-critical applications but they also need to
    support a seemingly constant flow of emerging business opportunities. ​They’re also tasked
    to lower costs, reduce Capex, while helping to drive revenue growth. That’s a lot of drivers
    and this complex juggling act often requires modernising infrastructure. An almost inevitable
    result of this is that the mix of platforms they adopt will include public cloud.

    So, does that signal the end of the corporate data centre as we know it? Well, as is so often
    the answer – yes and no. ‘Yes’ because there is no doubt that the complexity and cost of
    building and managing on-premise infrastructures is becoming increasingly unsustainable for
    many businesses. And ‘no’ because business continuity and stability of legacy applications
    are still, quite rightly, primary drivers today.

  • Maybe it’s Better to Never Make Predictions, Especially About the Future
    Maybe it’s Better to Never Make Predictions, Especially About the Future
    Patrick Grillo, Senior Director, Security Solutions, Fortinet Jan 29 2019 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    For the past several months social media and the Internet in general has been overloaded with all sorts of dire predictions about the future of the threat landscape. However, if all of these were taken at face value then organizations might as well either close up shop or go back to print advertising and taking orders by paper purchase orders.

    While these predictions can give us an insight of what “could” happen in the future they shouldn’t be allowed to become distractions from the tasks at hand - ensuring that
    1) cyber security best practices are being implemented and being followed throughout the organization
    2) the right technology is deployed where needed throughout the network and
    3) preventive and predictive technologies are deployed in equal measure.

    This session will look back on some of 2018’s threat landscape predictions and how close (or far) from the mark they landed. Some of the predictions for 2019 will also be examined to see if any trends have developed year-on-year. Any predictions made during the session will follow the Winston Churchill rule: "I always avoid prophesying beforehand because it is much better to prophesy after the event has already taken place".

  • Network Architecture With Security in Mind
    Network Architecture With Security in Mind
    Matt Bromiley, Instructor and Security Expert, SANS and Sam Kumarsamy, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Gigamon Jan 30 2019 6:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    It’s time to face a hard truth: modern enterprise networks can be extremely – sometimes painfully – complex to manage and defend. Increased network speeds to 100Gb, unfettered access to cloud applications and end-to-end encryption are just some of the requirements of today’s employees. When you add in mobile and IoT devices, the complexity grows exponentially, especially when it comes to the security of the networks to which they connect.

    And when we couple expanding networks with security needs, many organizations struggle to protect their users. This leads to conflicts between NetOps and SecOps goals. The networking team is concerned about availability and performance to ensure the business is being conducted whereas the security team needs to ensure the data and the users are safe from bad actors.

    We need a new approach that provides pervasive visibility to data flowing across the physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure to ensure that the right traffic is sent to the right security tools. This approach should also enable SecOps and NetOps to collaborate and improve the security posture of an organization

    Watch this SANS webinar to learn:
    •The common security pain points as networks expand and grow with increasing speeds
    •How today’s users are forcing organizations to consider/include security in their network architecture
    •How a lack of security can impact network availability and performance
    •How to bridge the NetOps and SecOps divide

    We will discuss how pervasive network visibility improves security tool utilization and can shorten detection and response times. We hope this webcast will inspire you to reassess the current state of your network and security infrastructure to enable collaboration between the two teams and improve your security posture.

  • File vs. Block vs. Object Storage
    File vs. Block vs. Object Storage
    Daniel Sazbon, Chair SNIA Europe and IBM; Alex McDonald, Vice-Chair SNIA Europe and NetApp Feb 5 2019 10:00 am UTC 75 mins
    When it comes to storage, a byte is a byte is a byte, isn’t it? One of the enduring truths about simplicity is that scale makes everything hard, and with that comes complexity. And when we’re not processing the data, how do we store it and access it?

    In this webcast, we will compare three types of data access: file, block and object storage, and the access methods that support them. Each has its own set of use cases, and advantages and disadvantages. Each provides simple to sophisticated management of the data, and each makes different demands on storage devices and programming technologies.

    Perhaps you’re comfortable with block and file, but are interested in investigating the more recent class of object storage and access. Perhaps you’re happy with your understanding of objects, but would really like to understand files a bit better, and what advantages or disadvantages they have compared to each other. Or perhaps you want to understand how file, block and object are implemented on the underlying storage systems – and how one can be made to look like the other, depending on how the storage is accessed. Join us as we discuss and debate:

    Storage devices
    •How different types of storage drive different management & access solutions

    Block
    •Where everything is in fixed-size chunks
    •SCSI and SCSI-based protocols, and how FC and iSCSI fit in

    Files
    •When everything is a stream of bytes
    •NFS and SMB

    Objects
    •When everything is a blob
    •HTTP, key value and RESTful interfaces

    Altogether
    •When files, blocks and objects collide
