  • What’s Your 2019 NVMe Strategy?
    What’s Your 2019 NVMe Strategy?
    Storage Switzerland, Western Digital Recorded: Dec 6 2018 47 mins
    The flash optimized NVMe protocol has been on the market for over a year and the technology is available in several forms. NVMe, both storage and networking (NVMe over Fabrics) is more expensive than the typical SAS based solution and not all applications or environments can take advantage of the performance NVMe promises. At the same time there are workloads like artificial intelligence, machine learning and high velocity analytics that need all the performance that NVMe can offer and some organizations are buying NVMe solutions just for those workloads.

    Most data centers already have too many storage systems to manage, and adding another silo just for extreme performance workloads may make the problem even worse. IT needs a strategy to not only correctly integrate NVMe into the data center but to do so in a way that doesn’t further fragment the architecture. In fact, with the right strategy, IT can use the NVMe system as a point of storage consolidation.

    In this live webinar join experts from Storage Switzerland and Western Digital for an interactive webinar the will help you develop an NVMe strategy that makes the most sense for your organization.

  • What’s Next: Software-Defined Storage as a Service Without Legacy Limitations
    What’s Next: Software-Defined Storage as a Service Without Legacy Limitations
    Tom Bendien, Gal Naor, Guy Loewenberg, Randall van Allen Recorded: Dec 4 2018 60 mins
    Storage is where your data lives and is needed to run your workloads on premise, in a colocation, Cloud or on the move. Many advances have been made in data management capabilities such as virtualizing the storage software layer and utilizing Cloud/hyper-converged hosting platforms. However, the software used to run storage systems continues to rely on traditional RAID and data management methods.

    This approach continues to impose limitations on storage performance and agility. Next generation storage software must be built from the ground up to provide better performance and flexibility.

    Madison Cloud has teamed with StorONE to deliver new software-defined storage capabilities with an entirely new software stack. Imagine using the same drive pool to simultaneously deliver block, file and object storage services. Forget the complexity of managing RAID groups and lengthy rebuilds. Access the full IOPS potential of your NVMe/SSD/HDD drives. Mix & match different drive types and sizes in a single system. Take as many snapshots as you like, without suffering from performance degradation and consuming valuable drive space. Use the largest available disk drives without RAID overhead and collapse your data center footprint in weeks, not years.

    Simplify storage procurement by flattening complex pricing structures into a single pricing tier that provides Petabyte scale block, file and object storage in a single platform, for as little as $0.01/GB/month.

    Your new simplified data management fabric now delivers what you need, when you need it, in a 100% utility model.

    Join us to learn how Madison Cloud and StorONE can deliver the data management platform you always wanted.

  • Mainframe: Legacy or Transformation Opportunity?
    Mainframe: Legacy or Transformation Opportunity?
    Simon Ratcliffe, CIO Advisor & Mentor, IT Evangelist, Ensono & Cloud Industry Forum Recorded: Dec 4 2018 56 mins
    A 2018 survey of Enterprise organisations by Ensono and the Cloud Industry Forum showed that 89% of the 500 participants surveyed indicated that legacy technology within their businesses were preventing or hampering their ability to execute effective digital transformation.

    Perhaps the greatest legacy within many organisations is the mainframe estate that brings the challenges of punitive vendor commercials, risks with maintaining on-going skills, lifecycle planning issues and the sheer volume of residual workload that remains within these estates. With increasing pressure to modernise the applications, methodologies and tooling surrounding these legacy environments, the mainframe is often seen as holding businesses back but does this need to be the case?

    This webinar will explore different approaches to enabling these legacy systems to be part of the transformational journey rather than a blocker and examine how organisations can re-define the legacy blockers as positive rather than negative attributes.

  • Will You Still Love Me When I Turn 64GFC?
    Will You Still Love Me When I Turn 64GFC?
    Dean Wallace, Marvell; Barry Maskas, HPE Dec 11 2018 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Fibre Channel’s speed roadmap defines a well-understood technological trend: the need to double the bit rate in the channel without doubling the required bandwidth.

    In order to do this, PAM4 (pulse-amplitude modulation, with four levels of pulse modulation), enters the Fibre Channel physical layer picture. With the use of four signal levels instead of two, and with each signal level corresponding to a two-bit symbol, the standards define 64GFC operation while maintaining backward compatibility with 32GFC and 16GFC.

    This advanced technical session will cover the T11 standards which define 64GFC serial Fibre Channel, backwards speed auto-negotiation compatibility, and compatible form factors:

    •New physical layer and specification challenges for PAM4, which includes eye openings, crosstalk sensitivity, and new test methodologies and parameters
    •Transceivers, their form factors, and how 64GFC maintains backward compatibility with multi-mode fibre cable deployments in the data center, including distance specifications
    •Discussion of protocol changes, and an overview of backward-compatible link speed and forward error correction (FEC) negotiation
