Practical Steps to Improve Existing Data Centre Energy Efficiency

Initiatives like the EU code of conduct for Data Centre Energy Efficiency and the UK Government Carbon Reduction Legislation are all steps in the right direction for reducing energy demand. But many of the recommendations are more appropriate for a “Green Field” approach rather than the “Brown Field” reality of today’s data centres. This session from Unisys will cover practical actions than can be done today to improve energy efficiency while minimizing the potential distribution and risk to the business.

Terry Boldick has extensive experience in the design, development, implementation and support of IT transformation projects. Currently he is working with IT managers on carbon reduction strategies and the impact of the UK Government recent legislation on Carbon Reduction. Prior to this role he has been managing large and complex virtualization projects involving not only technology but the alignment of business and IT expectations.

    Greg Schulz, Founder/Sr. Advisory Analyst, Server StorageIO
    At the core of cloud (public, private, hybrid) next generation data centers are software defined data infrastructures that exist to protect, preserve and serve applications, data along with their resulting information services. Software defined data infrastructure core components include hardware, software servers and storage configured (defined) to provide various services enabling application Performance Availability Capacity and Economics (PACE). Just as there are different types of environments, applications along with workloads various options, technologies as well as techniques exist for cloud services (and underlying data infrastructures). Join us in this session to discuss trends, technologies, tools, techniques and services options for cloud infrastructures.

    Topics include:
    - Data Infrastructures exist to support applications and their underlying resource needs
    - Software Defined Infrastructures (SDDI) are what enable Software Defined Data Centers and clouds
    - Various types of clouds along with cloud services that determine how resources get defined
    - When, where, why and how to use cloud Infrastructures along with associated resources

    In this part of the series, “Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” we’re going to be focusing on the network aspect of storage systems.

    As with any technical field, it’s too easy to dive into the jargon of the pieces and expect people to know exactly what you mean. Unfortunately, some of the terms may have alternative meanings in other areas of technology. In this Webcast, we look at some of those terms specifically and discuss them as they relate to storage networking systems.

    In particular, you’ll find out what we mean when we talk about:

    •Channel versus Busses
    •Control Plane versus Data Plane
    •Fabric versus Network

    For people who are familiar with Data Center Technology, whether it be Compute, Programming, or even Storage itself, some of these concepts may seem intuitive and obvious… until you start talking to people who are really into this stuff. This series of Webcasts will help be your Secret Decoder Ring to unlock the mysteries of what is going on when you hear these conversations.

  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask/Chartreuse Recorded: Sep 7 2016 56 mins
    J Metz, Cisco, Alex McDonald, NetApp, John Kim, Mellanox, Chad Hintz, Cisco, Fred Knight, NetApp
    Welcome to this first part of the webcast series, where we’re going to take an irreverent, yet still informative look, at the parts of a storage solution in Data Center architectures. We’re going to start with the very basics – The Naming of the Parts. We’ll break down the entire storage picture and identify the places where most of the confusion falls. Join us in this first webcast – Part Chartreuse – where we’ll learn:

    •What an initiator is
    •What a target is
    •What a storage controller is
    •What a RAID is, and what a RAID controller is
    •What a Volume Manager is
    •What a Storage Stack is

    With these fundamental parts, we’ll be able to place them into a context so that you can understand how all these pieces fit together to form a Data Center storage environment.

    Oh, and why are the parts named after colors, instead of numbered? Because there is no order to these webcasts. Each is a standalone seminar on understanding some of the elements of storage systems that can help you learn about technology without admitting that you were faking it the whole time! If you are looking for a starting point – the absolute beginning place – start with this one. We’ll be using these terms in all the other presentations.

    Join Commvault experts to understand the best practice considerations of leveraging public cloud disaster recovery services when protecting your Software-Defined Data Centre (SDDC).

    As awareness of the potential benefits of a Software Defined Data Centre has begun to resonate around CxO’s, the value and importance of disaster recovery provisioning has been challenged by the notion that clustering and high availability could be sufficient to accommodate the recovery needs (i.e. no DR provisioning is required).

    In this webinar we'll look at the significant risks and pitfalls that a 'non DR' strategy can pose and learn about the five step programme to optimise your chances of recovery when working with Public Cloud providers.
  • Storage Architectures for Next Generation Cognitive Analytics Recorded: Jun 13 2016 36 mins
    Balint Fleischer, Chief Research Officer, Huawei
    In the era of data explosion in Cloud-Mobile convergence and Internet of Things, traditional architectures and storage systems will not be sufficient to support the transition of enterprises to cognitive analytics. The ever increasing data rates and the demand to reduce time to insights will require an integrated approach to data ingest, processing and storage to reduce end-to-end latency, much higher throughput, much better resource utilization, simplified manageability, and considerably lower energy usage to handle highly diversified analytics. Yet next-generation storage systems must also be smart about data content and application context in order to further improve application performance and user experience. A new software-defined storage system architecture offers the ability to tackle such challenges. It features seamless end-to-end data service of scalable performance, intelligent manageability, high energy efficiency, and enhanced user experience.

With cloud-like applications, the massive scale of data and analytics, the introduction of solid state and HPC type applications hitting the data center, the architectures are changing, rapidly. It is a time of incredible change and opportunity for business and the IT staff that supports the change. Welcome to the new world of Enterprise Data Storage.
  • Emerging Technologies in Storage: Disaggregation of Storage Function Recorded: May 19 2016 64 mins
    Jeff Kato, Taneja Group; Brian Biles, Datrium; Patrick Osborne, HPE; Kevin Fernandez, Nutanix
    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.

  • Data Center Consolidation and Simplification with Hyper-converged Recorded: May 18 2016 38 mins
    Sushant Rao, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, DataCore Software
    Server virtualization was supposed to consolidate and simplify IT infrastructure in data centers. But, that only “sort of happened”. Companies do have fewer servers but they never hit the consolidation ratios they expected. Why? In one word, performance.

    Surveys show that 61% of companies have experienced slow applications after server virtualization with 77% pointing to I/O problems as the culprit.

    Now, with hyper-converged, companies have another opportunity to fulfill their vision of consolidating and reduce the complexity of their infrastructure. But, this will only happen if their applications get the I/O performance they need.

    Join us for this webinar where we will show you how to get industry leading I/O response times and the best price/performance so you can reduce and simplify your infrastructure.
