  • Containers: Best Practices and Data Management Services Containers: Best Practices and Data Management Services Keith Hudgins, Tech Alliances, Docker, Andrew Sullivan, Tech Marketing Engineer, NetApp, Alex McDonald, Chair SNIA-CSI Recorded: Dec 7 2016 57 mins
    Now that you have become acquainted with basic container technologies and the associated storage challenges in supporting applications running within containers in production; let’s take a deeper dive into what differentiates this technology from what you are used to with virtual machines. Containers can both complement virtual machines and also replace them as they promise the ability to scale exponentially higher. They can easily be ported from one physical server to another or to one platform—such as on-premise—to another—such as public cloud providers like Amazon AWS. In this Webcast, we’ll explore “container best practices” that discuss how to address the various challenges around networking, security and logging. We’ll also look at what types of applications more easily lend themselves to a microservice architecture versus which applications may require additional investment to refactor/re-architect to take advantage of microservices.
  • IoT Standardization and Implementation Challenges IoT Standardization and Implementation Challenges Professor Ahmed Banafa, College of Engineering, San Jose State University Recorded: Dec 6 2016 62 mins
    The rapid evolution of the IoT market has caused an explosion in the number and variety of IoT solutions. Additionally, large amounts of funding are being deployed at IoT startups. Consequently, the focus of the industry has been on manufacturing and producing the right types of hardware to enable those solutions. In current model, most IoT solution providers have been building all components of the stack, from the hardware devices to the relevant cloud services or as they would like to name it as “IoT solutions”, as a result, there is a lack of consistency and standards across the cloud services used by the different IoT solutions.

    As the industry evolves, the need for a standard model to perform common IoT backend tasks, such as processing, storage, and firmware updates, is becoming more relevant. In that new model, we are likely to see different IoT solutions work with common backend services, which will guarantee levels of interoperability, portability, and manageability that are almost impossible to achieve with the current generation of IoT solutions.

    Join Ahmed Banafa, Professor at SJSU and named as the "number one tech voice to follow" on LinkedIn, in this engaging and informative all-about-IoT webinar!
  • Danish Universities Easily Validates Digital Examination App w/ HPE StormRunner Danish Universities Easily Validates Digital Examination App w/ HPE StormRunner Jesper Mortensen, AHOC Recorded: Dec 6 2016 58 mins
    Digital transformation is changing the way almost every organization operates today, even in the educational system. Computers in the exam room have increasingly replaced pen and paper, necessitated by the growth in distance learning and the growing volume of students. Digital exams that candidates can download and complete from any location are quickly overtaking the controlled environment of the exam room in many locations which means that system performance is critical. It’s not acceptable for students if it takes a long time to download the paper and even worse if, having completed the examination, the student is unable to upload it again. This can become a problem with thousands of concurrent students downloading papers.


    Join this webinar to hear how six of Denmark’s eight universities led by University of Copenhagen have collaborated to develop a coordinated solution using HPE StormRunner Load to address their testing challenges. Attendees of this webinar will learn how the universities are using StormRunner Load to:


    Simulate concurrent download and upload by 6,000 virtual users
    Identify problems with certain configurations and database items
    Deliver unlimited scalability through cloud-base SaaS solution
    Process over 300,000 examinations a year

  • MarFS: A Scalable Near-POSIX Name Space over Cloud Objects – New Features MarFS: A Scalable Near-POSIX Name Space over Cloud Objects – New Features Kyle Lamb and David Bonnie, Storage Technical Leads, Los Alamos National Laboratory Recorded: Nov 22 2016 47 mins
    It has been said that Objects are for applications and POSIX is for people. The HPC community as well as many other large scale IT organizations have legacy applications and users that know, use, and depend on a near POSIX environment with real folders, ease of renaming and reshaping trees, and other powerful concepts in POSIX.

    MarFS is designed to provide a scalable near-POSIX name space over standard object systems, with target scaling out to trillions of POSIX files, hundreds of Gigabytes/sec of data bandwidth, and millions of POSIX metadata operations/sec.

    MarFS, now in use in production, has met the original developmental goals and many feature enhancements are now being developed. Features such as cloud storage flexibility enabled by a data abstraction layer, calculation of parity for incoming data, and expanded metadata scalability.
