  • The SNIA Persistent Memory Security Threat Model
    The SNIA Persistent Memory Security Threat Model Doug Voigt, Co-Chair, SNIA NVM Programming TWG and Distinguished Technologist, HPE Aug 21 2018 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    What new security requirements apply to Persistent Memory (PM)? While many existing security practices such as access control, encryption, multi-tenancy and key management apply to persistent memory, new security threats may result from the differences between PM and storage technologies. The SNIA PM security threat model provides a starting place for exposing system behavior, protocol and implementation security gaps that are specific to PM. This in turn motivates industry groups such as TCG and JEDEC to standardize methods of completing the PM security solution space.

  • RoCE vs. iWARP
    RoCE vs. iWARP Tim Lustig, Mellanox; Fred Zhang, Intel; John Kim, Mellanox Aug 22 2018 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Network-intensive applications, like networked storage or clustered computing, require a network infrastructure with high bandwidth and low latency. Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) supports zero-copy data transfers by enabling movement of data directly to or from application memory. This results in high bandwidth, low latency networking with little involvement from the CPU.

    In the next SNIA ESF “Great Storage Debates” series webcasts, we’ll be examining two commonly known RDMA protocols that run over Ethernet; RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) and IETF-standard iWARP. Both are Ethernet-based RDMA technologies that reduce the amount of CPU overhead in transferring data among servers and storage systems.

    The goal of this presentation is to provide a solid foundation on both RDMA technologies in a vendor-neutral setting that discusses the capabilities and use cases for each so that attendees can become more informed and make educated decisions.

    Join to hear the following questions addressed:

    •Both RoCE and iWARP support RDMA over Ethernet, but what are the differences?
    •Use cases for RoCE and iWARP and what differentiates them?
    •UDP/IP and TCP/IP: which uses which and what are the advantages and disadvantages?
    •What are the software and hardware requirements for each?
    •What are the performance/latency differences of each?

    Join our SNIA experts as they answer all these questions and more on this next Great Storage Debate
  • Don't Wait for Disaster to Strike! How to Create a Great Disaster Recovery Plan
    Don't Wait for Disaster to Strike! How to Create a Great Disaster Recovery Plan Storage Switzerland, KeepItSafe, Veeam Aug 22 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Many studies indicate that organizations have a shallow confidence level in their ability to recover from a disaster. The disaster recovery plan is often an ad-hoc plan that requires IT to scramble when disaster strikes. If the recovery effort succeeds, it is often well behind schedule and well over budget.

    The first step in creating a great disaster recovery plan is creating one that isn't bad at the very least. In this live webinar join Storage Switzerland, Veeam, and KeepItSafe as we discuss how to go from a bad disaster recovery situation to a great disaster recovery plan for better business continuity.
  • Converged Tape Appliance for Veeam
    Converged Tape Appliance for Veeam Ronn Martin, Solutions Architect at Veeam & Eric Bassier, Senior Director, Product Marketing at Quantum Aug 22 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Tape is as relevant as ever, but it may not be for the reasons that you think. In fact, as part of delivering hyper-availability, one best practice is to use tape as an “offline” storage copy to protect against ransomware and malware, which is a key part of a comprehensive data protection strategy.

    In this webinar, join experts from Veeam and Quantum to learn about tape’s role in tomorrow’s infrastructures, best practices for tape in a Veeam environment, and to introduce Quantum’s new converged tape appliance for Veeam – which makes it easier to create tape to protect against ransomware.
  • Zero Downtime, Zero Touch Stretch Clusters from Software-Defined Storage
    Zero Downtime, Zero Touch Stretch Clusters from Software-Defined Storage Augie Gonzalez, Director of Product Marketing, DataCore Software Aug 22 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Business continuity, especially across data centers in nearby locations often depends on complicated scripts, manual intervention and numerous checklists. Those error-prone processes are exponentially more difficult when the data storage equipment differs between sites.

    Such difficulties force many organizations to settle for partial disaster recovery measures, conceding data loss and hours of downtime during occasional facility outages.

    In this webcast and live demo, you’ll learn about:
    • Software-defined storage services capable of continuously mirroring data in
    real-time between unlike storage devices.
    • Non-disruptive failover between stretched cluster requiring zero touch.
    • Rapid restoration of normal conditions when the facilities come back up.

  • Fibre Channel Interoperability
    Fibre Channel Interoperability Barry Maskas, HPE; Tim Sheehan, University of New Hampshire Interoperability Lab; David Rodgers, Teledyne LeCroy Aug 23 2018 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Interoperability is a primary basis for the predictable behavior of a Fibre Channel (FC) SAN. FC interoperability implies standards conformance by definition. Interoperability also implies exchanges between a range of products, or similar products from one or more different suppliers, or even between past and future revisions of the same products. Interoperability may be developed as a special measure between two products, while excluding the rest, and still be standards conformant. When a supplier is forced to adapt its system to a system that is not based on standards, it is not interoperability but rather, only compatibility.

    Every FC hardware and software supplier publishes an interoperability matrix and per product conformance based on having validated conformance, compatibility, and interoperability. There are many dimensions to interoperability, from the physical layer, optics, and cables; to port type and protocol; to server, storage, and switch fabric operating systems versions; standards and feature implementation compatibility; and to use case topologies based on the connectivity protocol (F-port, N-Port, NP-port, E-port, TE-port, D-port).

    In this session we will delve into the many dimensions of FC interoperability, discussing:

    •Standards and conformance
    •Validation of conformance and interoperability
    •FC-NVMe conformance and interoperability
    •Interoperability matrices
    •Multi-generational interoperability
    •Use case examples of interoperability
  • Blending Art & Science: Using Data to Forecast and Manage Your Sales Pipeline
