Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) has been discussed in data center conferences and media. It is a set of tools and methods to make a data center as a whole perform optimally. Simply put, DCIM deals with mechanical and electrical systems of facilities, and power and environmental information of IT equipment. No standards have been defined yet but several functional areas have been mentioned, such as Inventory, Change, Capacity, Simulation, Monitoring and Efficiency Modeling. Many vendors have emerged with various solutions that focus on one or a few areas but not on a holistic scale. So the integration of multiple tools will be necessary to satisfy the overall needs and some vendors are working together to integrate their solutions.

But equally important is how to manage IT equipment at a higher level, such as server health, and application and service status. This is the market segment known as system management. Although DCIM and system management have been developed independent to each other, it is increasingly necessary to integrate the two to manage a data center even more efficiently. The information obtained with system management functions will become crucial to control the infrastructure sides of facilities and even IT equipment.

In this panel session, we will review DCIM solutions and how they can be integrated with system management for better design and operations of data centers. We will also discuss the impact of such integration, such as management and organizational structure. But at the same time, we need to realize that the ultimate goal of having a data center is to satisfy business goals of an enterprise with IT infrastructure, such as server health and applications status. That is why it is utmost important to integrate both IT and Facilities under common management to plan, design, monitor and control. Join this panel as these thought leaders discuss how you can use DCIM to best manage the facilities and IT within your data center.

  • Accelerating Your Cloud With DPDK Accelerating Your Cloud With DPDK Stephen Finucane, OpenStack Software Engineer Recorded: May 24 2016 31 mins
    Recent versions of Open vSwitch (OVS) provide an accelerated datapath based on the Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) libraries. This acceleration benefits many users, but it is vital for meeting the high performance, high determinism requirements of NFV workloads. Open vSwitch (OVS) is the most widely deployed switching solution for OpenStack deployments [1], and Intel has been working to bring the benefits of OVS with DPDK to OpenStack.
    In this talk, we explore the work that has been done and the work that is still ongoing to bring the benefits of OVS with DPDK to OpenStack. We detail how users can benefit from these changes, and impact they can expect to see. Finally, we detail how users can get started exploring these changes themselves.

    Health management in the data center has four main pillars. Monitoring, Analytics, Diagnostics and Remediation.

    In this session we will cover these main pillars and why they are important. We will unveil how you can use embedded sensors in the silicon available through standardized interfaces on your servers to help IT professionals start to add these pillars to their environment and begin to leverage them to help with MTTR reduction to outage avoidance. In the case of actual server issues, we will explain the ways to access those machines remotely and fix them with Intel Virtual Gateway.

    Highlights of the Four Main Pillars:
    •Monitoring: automated server health monitoring, failure alerting, health dashboard, and more.
    •Analytics: root cause with health details, failure device report severity indication, and health history.
    •Diagnostics: Remote vKVM access, integrated in-band access, component level health details.
    •Remediation: remote power on/off and remote vMedia
  • Using Chef Compliance to Secure your Servers Using Chef Compliance to Secure your Servers Joe Gardiner, Field Solutions Architect, Chef Recorded: May 20 2016 33 mins
    Chef Compliance lets you express your compliance rules as code. You can easily run those rules as tests whenever you want. You get immediate feedback on whether your servers are configured as they should be.

    Chef Compliance scans your servers to see if they are configured in accordance with your rules and generates a report that identifies the issues it found. You can then use Chef to remediate those problems.

    In this webinar, Joe Gardiner will demonstrate how Chef Compliance works by scanning a default installation of RHEL 7.0 on the public cloud to see if it is CIS compliant. After the scan identifies the problem areas, Joe will use Chef to bring the server in line with the CIS benchmarks.

    You’ll also learn about an offer from Chef to help you perform a scan of your infrastructure and get you started on the road to compliance.

  • The Future of Enterprise Storage: Software-Defined, Storage-as-a-Service The Future of Enterprise Storage: Software-Defined, Storage-as-a-Service Doug Jury, VP Solution Sales & Bob Sarubbi, VP North American Sales, Zadara Storage; Bill Dollan, Business Dev Manager, Intel Recorded: May 19 2016 47 mins
    For decades, large array vendors dominated the storage industry. However, over time, the industry began moving to more flexible virtualized and eventually cloud-based resources. Software Defined Infrastructures have enabled an entirely new set of options for pay-as-you-go IT resources. Industry analysts show a clear and consistent transition away from older CapEx storage to OpEx-based Storage-as-a-Service.

    One of the most critical elements that companies wrestle with when moving from traditional storage to an as-a-service model is whether they will sacrifice functionality for economic and flexibility benefits. Zadara Storage, by working closely with Intel, has developed “Enterprise” Storage-as-a-Service, providing IT professionals with the same level of enterprise-grade storage that they have used for years, but with the flexibility and economic benefits of cloud-based solutions. The storage is available “anywhere” – in the cloud, on-premise or in hybrid configurations.

    Further, by leveraging the fundamental elements of Software Defined Infrastructures and cloud-based technology, Zadara can offer greater business continuity, disaster recovery, security and other advanced storage features than previously offered by the traditional vendors.

  • Emerging Technologies in Storage: Disaggregation of Storage Function Emerging Technologies in Storage: Disaggregation of Storage Function Jeff Kato, Taneja Group; Brian Biles, Datrium; Patrick Osborne, HPE; Kevin Fernandez, Nutanix Recorded: May 19 2016 64 mins
    Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss one of the newest trends in storage: Disaggregation of traditional storage functions. A major trend within IT is to leverage server and server-side resources to the maximum extent possible. Hyper-scale architectures have led to the commoditization of servers and flash technology is now ubiquitous and is often times most affordable as a server-side component. Underutilized compute resources exist in many datacenters as the growth in CPU power has outpaced other infrastructure elements. One current hot trend— software-defined-storage—advocates collocating all storage functions to the server side but also relies on local, directly attached storage to create a shared pool of storage. That limits the server’s flexibility in terms of form factor and compute scalability.

    Now some vendors are exploring a new, optimally balanced approach. New forms of storage are emerging that first smartly modularize storage functions, and then intelligently host components in different layers of the infrastructure. With the help of a lively panel of experts we will unpack this topic and explore how their innovative approach to intelligently distributing storage functions can bring about better customer business outcomes.
