    Rockin’ and Rollin’ with SMB3 Ned Pyle, SMB Program Manager, Microsoft, John Kim, SNIA-ESF Chair, Mellanox Apr 5 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Server Message Block (SMB) is the core file-transfer protocol of Windows, MacOS and Samba, and has become widely deployed. It’s ubiquitous - a 30-year-old family of network code.

    However, the latest iteration of SMB3 is almost unrecognizable when compared to versions only a few years old. Extensive reengineering has led to advanced capabilities that include multichannel, transparent failover, scale out, and encryption. SMB Direct makes use of RDMA networking, creates block transport system and provides reliable transport to zetabytes of unstructured data, worldwide.

    SMB3 forms the basis of hyper-converged and scale-out systems for virtualization and SQL Server. It is available for a variety of hardware devices, from printers, network-attached storage appliances, to Storage Area Networks (SANs). It is often the most prevalent protocol on a network, with high-performance data transfers as well as efficient end-user access over wide-area connections.

    In this SNIA-ESF Webcast, Microsoft’s Ned Pyle, program manager of the SMB protocol, will discuss the current state of SMB, including:

    •Brief background on SMB
    •An overview of the SMB 3.x family, first released with Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, MacOS 10.10, Samba 4.1, and Linux CIFS 3.12
    •What changed in SMB 3.1.1
    •Understanding SMB security, scenarios, and workloads
    •The deprecation and removal of the legacy SMB1 protocol
    •How SMB3 supports hyperconverged and scale-out storage

  • How to Use the Fibre Channel Speedmap
    How to Use the Fibre Channel Speedmap Dave Alexander, Tony Bourke Apr 6 2017 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Fibre Channel is the most well known dedicated storage networking protocol in use in data centers today, and is considered the gold standard for storage in terms of availability, reliability, and scalability. However, it does require some specific design and planning requirements. For that, storage administrators use the Fibre Channel Speedmap in order to plan.

    In this webcast, you will learn how to use the Fibre Channel Speedmap, what the numbers mean, and why its useful:

    - Why do storage administrators use the Speedmap?
    - What’s the difference between throughput, bandwidth, baud rates, and speed?
    - Why does this matter for Fibre Channel and not, say, Ethernet?

    This live webcast will be useful for anyone who wants to separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to “speeds and feeds,” and make sense of the numbers.

  • IoT Security Over Tea: Steeping Out the Hype
    IoT Security Over Tea: Steeping Out the Hype Gorav Arora, CTO Office Director of Technology at Gemalto Apr 11 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    A familiar buzz word over the past few years has been the Internet of Things (IoT). We have all heard the talk about it being the next big thing, its massive growth potential and the benefits to everyone. The IoT will generate more data, connect more devices and enable more users, and somehow these interactions will be safe and secure.

    We take a pragmatic view of IoT, cutting through the hype to uncover the core objective. Furthermore, we take a persona based approach to IoT security, and have identified four main ones: cloud service providers, consumers, device makers and third-party service providers. Each persona faces the obstacle of securing different parts of the ecosystem whether its access, the device, data and/or the user. However, it is necessary that security is provided holistically, as the weakest security link in the chain could compromise it all. In addition to security, the personas are used to demonstrate the ‘Stages of IoT’ from the digital identity of physical products to actualization of new business opportunities. No matter what persona in the IoT ecosystem you are (or are not), the webinar cuts through the hype to understand the real business opportunities and share with attendees the technology tool box (predictive analytics, security, connectivity, data collection and business intelligence) to create and improve services and leverage the generated data internally and externally.

    Join us for the webinar, “IoT Security Over Tea: Steeping out the Hype”, to learn more about:
    •A grounded perspective on IoT
    •Why IoT security matters for everyone
    •The persona analysis of IoT security
    •Key considerations as it begins to take off
    •How to protect what matters most to you
  • Continuous Testing- The "Missing Link" in DevOps and CI/CD
    Continuous Testing- The "Missing Link" in DevOps and CI/CD Shashi Kiran, CMO at Quali, Mark Hornbeek, Principal Consultant for DevOps at Trace3 Apr 12 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Modern release management teams pride themselves on setting up a seamless workflow for continuous integration and delivery. However, continuous testing – which is one of the most critical components of the workflow is often taken for granted or marginalized without clear ownership leading to impediments in quality. With the advent of DevOps and the movement to break down silos between developers and operations, it becomes critically important that all members of an IT team - regardless of what tools they use, or role they play - understand the essentials of continuous testing.
  • The Always-on Enterprise Requires New Service Level Objectives
    The Always-on Enterprise Requires New Service Level Objectives Charlie Hodges, Storage Switzerland Apr 12 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The Always-on Enterprise is a data center that faced with even the most severe disaster can return applications to full working order in a matter of minutes. Service level objectives (SLOs) are the means by which IT and the organization communicate how the protection and recovery process will work. The challenge is the status quo SLO won't meet the new "always-on" expectation. You need to protect data more frequently, recover more rapidly and provide better performance in the recovered state.

    It is time for IT to re-think SLOs and the solutions to meet them. Join experts from Storage Switzerland, Veeam and NetApp as they review the NEW SLO requirements and how you can meet those requirements while controlling costs.

    DIY PKI Rae Barton, PKI expert at Gemalto Apr 17 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is a well-known security protocol used by some of the world’s largest governments and top enterprises, but it’s a technology that also affords many possibilities in new and growing industries. Even small to medium sized businesses can greatly benefit from PKI. However, PKI is also often mistakenly perceived as being difficult to deploy. Gemalto is addressing this common misconception. The next webinar in our PKI series, DIY PKI, will walk attendees through the entire process of setting up a PKI environment and how to manage it. We have developed a five step process to make it easy for security professionals to get their PKI system up and running with minimal time spent. The five step implementation method will give you an idea of how to set up a two tier Microsoft PKI infrastructure with Gemalto SafeNet Authentication Manager and SafeNet Luna HSM to perform smart card log on for small to medium sized enterprises.

    Attendees of the DIY PKI webinar will see in five simple steps how to:
    -Install and configure a Hardware Security Module (HSM)
    -Install the root CA and configure it with the HSM
    -Install and configure the issuing CA
    -Configure the permissions of users and create certificate templates
    -Install and configure an authentication manager

    For the purpose of this webinar and using Gemalto’s five step propriety approach, we will use our SafeNet line of technologies, however attendees will be able to see firsthand how PKI technology has evolved into a do it yourself or service based model, making upgrading, implementing or scaling your PKI infrastructure easier to meet the demands of new and innovative technologies.
