  • Persistent Memory - Your Questions Answered on NVM and NVDIMM Persistent Memory - Your Questions Answered on NVM and NVDIMM Jeff Chang, AgigA Tech; Arthur Sainio, SMART Modular; Doug Voigt, HP-E; Mat Young, Netlist Recorded: Apr 26 2016 58 mins
    The IT industry has made tremendous progress innovating up and down the computing stack to enable and take advantage of non-volatile memory (NVM). But questions still remain on where NVM plays in the memory stack, how it will evolve in the CPU architecture, and where operating systems will need to be enhanced. Join the SNIA NVDIMM Special Interest Group to learn about the latest developments in NVDIMM, understand how the SNIA NVM Programming Model can be applied in NVM development work, and find your NVM answers!

  • What is NFS: An NFS Primer What is NFS: An NFS Primer Alex McDonald, SNIA-ESF Vice Chair, Chad Hintz, SNIA-ESF Board Member Recorded: Mar 23 2016 63 mins
    The popular & ubiquitous Network File System (NFS) is a standard protocol that allows applications to store and manage data on a remote computer or server. NFS provides two services; a network part that connects users or clients to a remote system or server; and a file-based view of the data. Together these provide a seamless environment that masks the differences between local files and remote files.

    This SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum Webcast is an introduction and overview presentation to NFS for technologists and tech managers interested in understanding:
    oNFS history and development
    oThe facilities and services NFS provides
    oWhy NFS rose in popularity to dominate file based services
    oWhy NFS continues to be important in the cloud
  • f4: Facebook’s Warm BLOB Storage System f4: Facebook’s Warm BLOB Storage System Satadru Pan, Software Engineer, Facebook Recorded: Mar 16 2016 48 mins
    Originally presented at SNIA’s 2015 Storage Developer Conference, this webcast will discuss how Facebook’s massive and continuously growing corpus of photos, videos, and other Binary Large OBjects (BLOBs) need to be reliably stored and quickly accessed.

    As the footprint of BLOBs increases, storing them in their traditional storage system, Haystack, is becoming increasingly inefficient. To increase Facebook’s storage efficiency, measured in the effective-replication-factor of BLOBs, they examine the underlying access patterns of BLOBs and identify temperature zones that include hot BLOBs that are accessed frequently and warm BLOBs that are accessed far less often.

    Facebook’s overall BLOB storage system is designed to isolate warm BLOBs and enable them to use a specialized warm BLOB storage system, f4. f4 is a new system that lowers the effective-replication-factor of warm BLOBs while remaining fault tolerant and able to support the lower throughput demands.
  • Exploring the Software Defined Data Center Exploring the Software Defined Data Center Eric Slack, Sr. Analyst, Evaluator Group, Alex McDonald, Chair, SNIA Cloud Storage, Glyn Bowden, SNIA Cloud Storage Board Recorded: Mar 15 2016 58 mins
    A Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) is a compute facility in which all elements of the infrastructure - networking, storage, CPU and security - are virtualized and removed from proprietary hardware stacks. Deployment, provisioning and configuration as well as the operation, monitoring and automation of the entire environment is abstracted from hardware and implemented in software.

    The results of this software-defined approach include maximizing agility and minimizing cost, benefits that appeal to IT organizations of all sizes. In fact, understanding SDDC concepts can help IT professionals in any organization better apply these software-defined concepts to storage, networking, compute and other infrastructure decisions.

    If you’re interested in Software-Defined Data Centers and how such a thing might be implemented – and why this concept is important to IT professionals who aren’t involved with building data centers - then please join us on March 15th as Eric Slack, Sr. Analyst with Evaluator Group, will explain what “software-defined” really means and why it’s important to all IT organizations and join a discussion with Alex McDonald, Chair for SNIA’s Cloud Storage Initiative about how these concepts apply to the modern data center.

    In this webinar we’ll be exploring:

    •How a SDDC leverages this concept to make the private cloud feasible
    •How we can apply SDDC concepts to an existing data center
    •How to develop your own software-defined data center environment
  • Storage Performance Benchmarking: Block Components Storage Performance Benchmarking: Block Components Ken Cantrell, Mngr, Performance Engineering, NetApp; Mark Rogov, Advisory Systems Engineer, EMC; David Fair - Chair, SNIA-ESF Recorded: Mar 8 2016 61 mins
    The third installment of our performance benchmarking Webcast series, “Storage Performance Benchmarking: Block Components” aims to continue educating anyone untrained in the storage performance arts to ascend to a common base with the experts. In this Webcast, you will gain an understanding of the block components of modern storage arrays and learn storage block-world terminology, including:

    •How storage media affects block storage performance
    •Integrity and performance trade-offs for data protection: RAID, Erasure Coding, etc.…
    •Terminology updates: seek time, rebuild time, garbage collection, queue depth and service time

  • How Ethernet RDMA Protocols iWARP and RoCE Support NVMe over Fabrics How Ethernet RDMA Protocols iWARP and RoCE Support NVMe over Fabrics David Fair, Chair, SNIA-ESF, John Kim, Director of Storage Marketing, Mellanox Recorded: Jan 26 2016 56 mins
    NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) over Fabrics is of tremendous interest among storage vendors, flash manufacturers, and cloud and Web 2.0 customers, Because it offers efficient remote and shared access to a new generation of flash and other non-volatile memory storage, it requires fast, low latency networks, and the first version of the specification is expected to take advantage of RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) support in the transport protocol.

    Many customers and vendors are now familiar with the advantages and concepts of NVMe over Fabrics but are not familiar with the specific protocols that support it. This live webcast will explore and compare the Ethernet RDMA protocols and transports that support NVMe over Fabrics and the infrastructure needed to use them. You’ll hear:

    •Why NVMe Over Fabrics requires a low-latency network
    •How the NVMe protocol is mapped to the network transport
    •How RDMA-capable protocols work
    •Comparing available Ethernet RDMA transports: iWARP and RoCE
    •Infrastructure required to support RDMA over Ethernet
    •Congestion management methods
