    • Rockin’ and Rollin’ with SMB3
      Rockin’ and Rollin’ with SMB3 Ned Pyle, SMB Program Manager, Microsoft, John Kim, SNIA-ESF Chair, Mellanox Recorded: Apr 5 2017 5:00 pm UTC 69 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

    • Small business thinking big: Enterprise-grade cloud strategies for SMBs
      Small business thinking big: Enterprise-grade cloud strategies for SMBs Wendy Schuchart, Editor & Analyst, VentureBeat Recorded: Mar 25 2015 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • Speakers:

      Steven Hill: Senior Analyst for Business Technology and Solutions at Current Analysis
      Sky Sharma: CIO at US Air Force
      Sam Eaton: Director of Engineering Operations at Yelp

      Abstract:

      Got cloud? If you’re an SMB, you’ve already been there, done that. But are you really extracting maximum value out of your cloud hosted solutions?

      SMBs use an average of five hosted services, between IaaS, hosted email and collaboration and business applications – and that number is expected to climb to almost ten cloud services by next year. Everyone’s dabbling, but SMBs crave the cloud sophistication of their enterprise-grade competitors.

      - How are enterprises pivoting so quickly to respond to operational goals and drive bottom line results?
      - How can SMBs use cloud functions to serve an ever-impatient customer base?
      - Can SMBs realize the kind of growth and innovation through cloud services that enterprises expect?
      - And more importantly, how do SMB CIOs get their hands on all of those pretty, shiny enterprise toys?

      We’ll answer those questions and more with this expert panel of enterprise leaders who will share their strategies for success that SMBs can copy by using cloud services.
