  • Introduction to Incast, Head of Line Blocking, and Congestion Management
    Introduction to Incast, Head of Line Blocking, and Congestion Management
    Sathish Gnanasekaran, Broadcom; John Kim, Mellanox; J Metz, Cisco; Tim Lustig, Mellanox Recorded: Jun 18 2019 61 mins
    For a long time, the architecture and best practices of storage networks have been relatively well-understood. Recently, however, advanced capabilities have been added to storage that could have broader impacts on networks than we think.

    The three main storage network transports - Fibre Channel, Ethernet, and InfiniBand – all have mechanisms to handle increased traffic, but they are not all affected or implemented the same way. For instance, placing a protocol such as NVMe over Fabrics can mean very different things when looking at one networking method in comparison to another.

    Unfortunately, many network administrators may not understand how different storage solutions place burdens upon their networks. As more storage traffic traverses the network, customers face the risk of congestion leading to higher-than-expected latencies and lower-than expected throughput. Watch this webinar to learn:

    •Typical storage traffic patterns
    •What is Incast, what is head of line blocking, what is congestion, what is a slow drain, and when do these become problems on a network?
    •How Ethernet, Fibre Channel, InfiniBand handle these effects
    •The proper role of buffers in handling storage network traffic
    •Potential new ways to handle increasing storage traffic loads on the network

    SUSE Technical Briefing and Demo – Ceph and Kubernetes
    Sean Rickerd and Yu Qi Recorded: Jun 13 2019 57 mins
    Two-part webinar including live demonstrations of enterprise software-defined storage and container solutions

    Enterprise Software-defined Storage:

    While a software-defined approach may seem new, the logic within enterprise storage devices has always been written in software. It’s only been in the last few years that hardware has progressed enough so that enterprise storage software and hardware can now be separated. Software-defined storage isn’t a new concept, but the ability to separate the storage software from the storage hardware is a new value proposition.

    Taking the right approach to software-defined storage will give you a highly scalable solution that radically reduces your storage costs in terms of both capital cost and operation expenditure. This solution also has to be simple, robust, and flexible – all while delivering industry-leading functionality.

    Enterprise Containers:

    Before virtualization, to bring up a new server took days; virtualization reduced the time to minutes; and, now, with containers, it takes just seconds.

    Linux container technologies provide highly efficient and low overhead OS-level virtualization. Also, they are designed to work well with other virtualization technologies supported by the Linux distribution.

    Check out what SUSE has done with the Enterprise-Ready Container Solution.

    MeetTheCEO: Actifio’s Ash Ashutosh
    Storage Switzerland, Actifio Recorded: Jun 12 2019 23 mins
    Enterprises are dealing with a constant tide of copy data sprawl. More copies are being created to serve secondary business processes like analytics, test and development, and frequently with limited oversight or governance from IT. Meanwhile, regulations like the European Union’s (EU’s) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) require more data to be stored for longer periods of time. Copy data management (CDM) solutions can help to contain this sprawl, but they must be agile in order to effectively support business operations. Also, in order to truly minimize infrastructure-related costs, they should have the flexibility to be procured through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model.

    Ash Ashutosh, CEO of CDM pioneer Actifio, will join Storage Switzerland to share his perspective on how customer pain points related to managing copy data sprawl are evolving, and how his company is pivoting in-line with those requirements. Be sure to join and hear his thoughts on changing business models, and how CDM can not only support more efficient and effective business collaboration, but also to protect against the threat of ransomware and supporting compliance requirements.

    Backups cannot be assumed to be safe today, against an emergence of more sophisticated malware. These new variants were designed to be discrete, often sitting idle and being copied across the backup repository to then attack slowly – all with the ultimate goal of attacking as many systems as possible while at the same time avoiding detection for as long as possible. To avoid restoring trigger files, IT must be able to proactively verify and monitor the quality and viability of backups. The problem is that legacy verification methods cannot keep up with the growing volume of backup data that must be verified or the frequency with which verification must occur.

    Lynn LeBlanc, CEO of HotLink, will join Storage Switzerland to share her perspective on how IT professionals may restructure their approach to backup verification so that all recovery points may be vetted, and malware attacks contained. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear her perspective on the new pain points related to backup verification that are emerging with modern ransomware, and how IT professionals may apply analytics and artificial intelligence for more efficient and thorough verification.

    As businesses migrate more of their data and applications to the cloud, a more comprehensive and mature disaster recovery implementation is required. Cloud service providers have built a base layer of data protection capabilities that focus primarily on enabling recovery from hardware failure, but the reality is that most recovery requests today stem from a cyberattack or from human error. As a result, cloud services need some help in the form of intelligent and granular search and tagging, as well as management capabilities such as the ability to schedule snapshots and apply retention policies.

    Cloud Daddy’s CEO, Spencer Kupferman, will join Storage Switzerland for a live webinar discussion regarding how the trifecta of increasing and more sophisticated malware attacks, regulatory oversight of data, and the shift to cloud are changing the face of the disaster recovery market. Register now to be sure you hear his perspective on why capabilities like simplified and centralized oversight of backup and replication jobs and cross-region backup and restore matter in today’s data protection paradigm.
