  • 15 Minute Friday: Rethinking Storage Performance for Modern Applications
    15 Minute Friday: Rethinking Storage Performance for Modern Applications
    Storage Switzerland, NGD Systems Recorded: Apr 12 2019 17 mins
    Modern applications process large segments of data, often in parallel. These applications need to match patterns across a multitude of object and vectors or regularly update multiple indices as they change over time. Storage IO and network latency quickly become a hindrance in allowing these applications to reach their full potential.

    Most IT Planners assume that the only way to address storage performance problems is to buy faster storage systems and eliminate network latency. These approaches only partially address the issues while being least efficient and more expensive. Join Storage Switzerland and NGD Systems for a 15 minute live webinar to discuss an alternative approach leveraging computational storage.

    Protocol Analysis 201 for High-Speed Fibre Channel Fabrics
    Yamini Shastry, Viavi Solutions; David Rodgers, Teledyne LeCroy; Joe Kimpler, ATTO Technology Recorded: Apr 11 2019 63 mins
    In the FCIA webcast “Protocol Analysis for High-Speed Fibre Channel Fabrics” experts covered the basics on protocol analysis tools and how to incorporate them into the “best practices” application of SAN problem solving.
    Our experts return for this 201 course which will provide a deeper dive into how to interpret the output and results from the protocol analyzers. We will also share insight into using signal jammers and how to use them to correlate error conditions to be able to formulate real time solutions.

    Root cause analysis requirements now encompass all layers of the fabric architecture, and new storage protocols that usurp the traditional network stack (i.e. FCoE, iWARP, NVMe over Fabrics, etc.) complicate analysis, so a well-constructed “collage” of best practices and effective and efficient analysis tools must be developed. In addition, in-depth knowledge of how to decipher the analytical results and then determine potential solutions is critical.

    Join us for a deeper dive into Protocol Analysis tools and how to interpret the analytical output from them. We will review:
    •Inter switch links (ISL) – How to measure and minimize fabric congestion
    •Post-capture analysis – Graphing, Trace reading, Performance metrics
    •Benefits of purposeful error injection
    •More Layer 2-3 and translation layers debug

    NVMe-oF 101 - Understanding NVMe-oF and How it Drives Business Value
    Dave Montgomery, Director, Storage Platforms Marketing, Western Digital May 1 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Every IT shop is trying to balance two different objectives: 1) increase capacity; 2) deliver the requisite performance against a variety of workloads. Indiscriminately spending money that doesn’t align capacity and storage performance with the workloads’ needs, is wasteful. However, connecting storage capacity and performance across the network with workloads is an easy way to allocate storage resources cost effectively, as needed.

    To address today’s dynamic data requirements, we must consider that end users need a next-generation infrastructure that aligns storage resources with workloads without jeopardizing performance, capacity, or incurring unwarranted expense. Non-Volatile Memory Express over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) is a storage protocol that aims to simplify the interconnection of computer memory, storage, and networking, while improving performance of the storage infrastructure and related applications, to meet IT departments’ objectives and drive business value.

    In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Kubernetes in the Cloud
    Kubernetes in the Cloud
    Matt Baldwin, NetApp and Former Founder StackPoint Cloud; Ingo Fuchs, NetApp; Mike Jochimsen, Kaminario May 2 2019 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Kubernetes (k8s) is an open-source system for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes promises simplified management of cloud workloads at scale, whether on-premises, hybrid, or in a public cloud infrastructure, allowing effortless movement of workloads from cloud to cloud. By some reckonings, it is being deployed at a rate several times faster than virtualization.

    In this presentation, we’ll introduce Kubernetes and present use cases that make clear where and why you would want to use it in your IT environment. We’ll also focus on the enterprise requirements of orchestration and containerization, and specifically on the storage aspects and best practices.

    •What is Kubernetes? Why would you want to use it?
    •How does Kubernetes help in a multi-cloud/private cloud environment?
    •How does Kubernetes orchestrate & manage storage? Can Kubernetes use Docker?
    •How do we provide persistence and data protection?

  • How to best ride the data explosion wave for a successful digital transformation
    How to best ride the data explosion wave for a successful digital transformation
    Florian Malecki, International Sr. Product Marketing Director May 9 2019 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    A recent study by Oxford Economics found that more than half of midsize companies see digital transformation as a core business goal. Why? Because they believe digitization can improve business performance for a wide range of functions, including more efficient business operations and stronger financial performance. At the core of any digital transformation initiative is data, because data is the foundation for understanding where the business is and for making informed decisions about where it is going.

    However, this appetite for digital transformation can quickly morph into digital disaster. Midsize companies run the risk of dealing with data management complexity themselves, without the proper resources, dramatically increasing the likelihood of data loss and threatening the potential for business growth.

    Join this StorageCraft webcast, and learn how converged secondary storage can help you with eliminating storage and data protection silos and scales out seamlessly to help manage explosive data growth.
