    Here is the highlight reel of SNIA's 2016 Data Storage Innovation Conference!
  • Cloud Storage: Solving Interoperability Challenges Cloud Storage: Solving Interoperability Challenges Udayan Singh, Head, Tata Consultancy, Mark Carlson, Cloud Storage Co-Chair, Cloud Storage TWG Co-Chair Recorded: Jul 19 2016 34 mins
    Cloud storage has transformed the storage industry, however interoperability challenges that were overlooked during the initial stages of growth are now emerging as front and center issues. Join this Webcast to learn the major challenges that businesses leveraging services from multiple cloud providers or moving from one cloud provider to another face.
    The SNIA Cloud Data Management Interface standard (CDMI) addresses these challenges by offering data interoperability between clouds. SNIA and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) have partnered to create a SNIA CDMI Conformance Test Program to help cloud storage providers achieve CDMI conformance.
    As interoperability becomes critical, end user companies should include the CDMI standard in their RFPs and demand conformance to CDMI from vendors.
    Join us on July 19th to learn:
    •Critical challenges that the cloud storage industry is facing
    •Issues in a multi-cloud provider environment
    •Addressing cloud storage interoperability challenges
    •How the CDMI standard works
    •Benefits of CDMI conformance testing
    •Benefits for end user companies
  • Cloud Object Storage 101 Cloud Object Storage 101 Nancy Bennis, Director of Alliances, Cleversafe an IBM Company, Alex McDonald, Chair, SNIA Cloud Storage Initiative, NetApp Recorded: Jul 14 2016 63 mins
    Object storage is a secure, simple, scalable, and cost-effective means of embracing the explosive growth of unstructured data enterprises generate every day.
    Many organizations, like large service providers, have already begun to leverage software-defined object storage to support new application development and DevOps projects. Meanwhile, legacy enterprise companies are in the early stages of exploring the benefits of object storage for their particular business and are searching for how they can use cloud object storage to modernize their IT strategies, store and protect data while dramatically reducing the costs associated with legacy storage sprawl.
    This Webcast will highlight the market trends towards the adoption of object storage , the definition and benefits of object storage, and the use cases that are best suited to leverage an underlying object storage infrastructure.
    In this webcast you will learn:
    •How to accelerate the transition from legacy storage to a cloud object architecture
    •Understand the benefits of object storage
    •Primary use cases
    •How an object storage can enable your private, public or hybrid cloud strategy without compromising security, privacy or data governance
  • Data Protection and OpenStack Mitaka Data Protection and OpenStack Mitaka Sam Fineberg, Distinguished Technologist, HPE, Ben Swartzlander, OpenStack Architect, NetApp, Thomas Rivera, SNIA DPCO Chair Recorded: Jun 22 2016 59 mins
    This Webcast will focus on the data protection capabilities of the OpenStack Mitaka release, which includes multiple resiliency features. Join Dr. Sam Fineberg, Distinguished Technologist (HPE), and Ben Swartzlander, Project Team Lead OpenStack Manila (NetApp), as they discuss:
    - Storage-related features of Mitaka
    - Data protection capabilities – Snapshots and Backup
    - Manila share replication
    - Live migration
    - Rolling upgrades
    - HA replication

    Our experts will be on hand to answer your questions.

    This Webcast is co-sponsored by two groups within the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA): the Cloud Storage Initiative (CSI), and the Data Protection & Capacity Optimization Committee (DPCO).
  • Today’s Big Changes Are Just the Tip of the Iceberg Today’s Big Changes Are Just the Tip of the Iceberg Jim Handy, General Director, Objective Analysis Recorded: Jun 14 2016 42 mins
    Computer architecture is undergoing cataclysmic change. New flash tiers have been added to storage, and SSD caching has brought DAS back into servers. Storage Class Memory looms on the horizon, and with it come new storage protocols, new DIMM formats, and even new processor instructions. Meanwhile new chip technologies are phasing in, like 3D NAND flash and 3D XPoint Memory, new storage formats are being proposed including the Open-Channel SSD and Storage Intelligence, and all-flash storage is rapidly migrating into those applications that are not moving into the cloud. The future promises to bring us computing functions embedded within the memory array, learning systems permeating all aspects of computing, and adoption of architectures that are very different from today’s standard Von Neuman machines. In this presentation we will examine these technical changes and reflect on ways to avoid designing systems and software that limit our ability to migrate from today’s technologies to those of tomorrow.

  • Achieving a Software Defined Cognitive Infrastructure for Oceans of Data Achieving a Software Defined Cognitive Infrastructure for Oceans of Data Michelle Tidwell, SNIA Board Member, IBM Systems Storage, Business Line Manager, Software Defined Storage Recorded: Jun 14 2016 35 mins
    We've heard it said that data is the new natural resource. In today's extremely dynamic, fast growing and interconnected world, businesses need more agile IT infrastructure to handle larger, faster, and growing variant types of Oceans of Data. The rise of cloud and hybrid cloud infrastructures, the common practice of server virtualization for efficiency and flexibility requires storage infrastructure that is equally flexible, to deliver, manage and protect data with superior performance to keep businesses operational through any data disruption or disaster. The IBM System Storage session will examine the IBM technologies that will help address the challenges and pain-points that IT professionals are experiencing to deliver dynamic insights for businesses and governments worldwide. Included in the IBM session are examples of how clients today are deploying Flash, Object and Software Defined Storage to rapidly and effectively deliver monetization of data.
  • Hyperconverged Deployments Making Inroads into the Enterprise Hyperconverged Deployments Making Inroads into the Enterprise Wayne Adams, Chairman Emeritus, SNIA Recorded: Jun 14 2016 8 mins
    Hyperconverged Infrastructures (HCIs) are popular solutions for a wide range of computing applications in small and medium-sized businesses. Their ease of deployment and operation, plus the ability to consolidate less efficient infrastructures into a comprehensive solution from a single vendor, have made them a good fit in these organizations. However, in the enterprise, companies with over 1000 employees, HCI adoption has been more limited. Certain use cases, such as providing a turnkey infrastructure for an enterprise’s remote and branch offices, are becoming more common. But what other usage scenarios are these larger companies looking at for hyperconverged appliances?
  • A DNA-based Archival Storage System A DNA-based Archival Storage System Luis Henrique Ceze, University of Washington Recorded: Jun 13 2016 37 mins
    Demand for data storage is growing exponentially, but the capacity of existing storage media is not keeping up. Using DNA to archive data is an attractive possibility because it is extremely dense, with a raw limit of 1 exabyte/mm3 (10^9 GB/mm3), and long-lasting, with observed half-life of over 500 years.

    This work presents an architecture for a DNA-based archival storage system. It is structured as a key-value store, and leverages common biochemical techniques to provide random access. We also propose a new encoding scheme that offers controllable redundancy, trading off reliability for density. We demonstrate feasibility, random access, and robustness of the proposed encoding with wet lab experiments. Finally, we highlight trends in biotechnology that indicate the impending practicality of DNA storage.
