    IP-Based Object Drives Now Have a Management Standard Erik Riedel, Dell EMC, Enrico Signoretti, OpenIO, David Slik, NetApp, Alex McDonald, NetApp Recorded: Apr 20 2017 59 mins
    The growing popularity of object-based storage has resulted in the development of Ethernet-connected storage devices, herein referred to as IP-Based Drives and subsystems supporting object interfaces and in some cases the ability to run localized applications.
    Typical scale-out storage nodes consist of relatively inexpensive enclosures with IP network connectivity, CPU, Memory and Direct Attached Storage (DAS). While inexpensive to deploy, these solutions become harder to manage over time.
    To ease management of these drives, SNIA has approved the release of the IP-Based Drive Management Specification. In this webcast, you’ll hear from authors of the specification who’ll discuss:

    • Major Components of the IP Based Drive Management Standard
    • How the standard leverages the DMTF Redfish management standard to manage Kinetic and other IP-Based Drives
    • Providing a standard management interface for drives that are part of JBOD or JBOF enclosures

    This standard allows drive management to scale to datacenters and beyond, enabling automation and Software Defined Datacenters. Join this webcast on April 20th to learn more.

  • Performance Management for Cloud-based applications
    Performance Management for Cloud-based applications Nicolas Leszczynski, Senior APM Solution Specialist Riverbed Recorded: Apr 19 2017 39 mins
    Cloud. Elastic computing. Containers. Microservices. Shared Libraries. These technologies are being adopted at almost exponential rates since they greatly simplify application design, development, deployment and manageability.

    Unfortunately, that surface-level simplicity comes with the price of dramatically more complex under-the-covers behaviors and relationships. Application topology is often transient, nebulous, and unpredictably interrelated with countless other applications and services. This has posed a serious challenge for performance management, since many tools and techniques are still rooted to static physical concepts like tiers, servers, and JVMs.

    There’s also been an expansion of the consumption of APM data, as LOB management and application owners look for more KPIs to help them improve the bottom line of the business. APM isn’t just a tool for developers and troubleshooters anymore.

    Learn How Riverbed Solutions can help you not only overcome these cloud applications performance management challenges, but also extract business-relevant information buried deep in these mind-boggling complex architectures

    Going Beyond His/tory: The Female Storytellers Shaping Immersive Tech Luciana Carvalho, VR Evangelist Apr 25 2017 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Humans have shared gathered around and communicated through stories throughout history. Text, pictures, images and videos have sought to capture our imagination, or portray the non-fictional in a relatable way. Now, as we move beyond the 2D flat screen to new ways of interacting/communicating with the world — virtual and augmented reality, for example — we begin to see the power of immersion in storytelling, and the impact it has, beyond anything we have ever seen, on those in the receiving end. Arguably, the ultimate empathy machine.

    As we shape the next 'Information Age', and given the state of the world today, never before have we been in more need of putting ourselves in other people’s shoes, and empowering diverse and inclusive voices worldwide. Never before have we seen more women jump at the opportunity to lead and make content that is all-encompassing, that touches and inspires, and that aims to build bridges not walls. Here is their story.

    Learner, maker, systems thinker, innovator and tech evangelist, Luciana splits her time between growing the Realities Centre London — a new innovation space, incubator and academy for B2B/enterprise VR, AR, MR and AI — and Unfold UK, promoting women/diversity in future in the UK.

It simply cannot deliver on the promise of a true enterprise-class HPC storage system.

    Through this webinar, you will learn:
    - How Intel and Seagate have partnered to provide the most robust Lustre Parallel File System Solution on the market today
    - The simplicity of the deployment of the Seagate Intel Enterprise Edition Lustre (IEEL) solution
