Bill Webster
Today, data drives discovery. And discoveries create are key to creating sustained advantages. The better your critical workflows are able to create and access data – the better you’ll be able to discover new, innovative solutions to important problems, or to create entirely new products. More than ever before, data intensive applications need the sustained performance and virtually unlimited scalability that only parallel storage software delivers.

Designed for maximum performance and scale, storage solutions powered by Lustre software deliver the performance at scale to meet today’s storage requirements. As the most widely used parallel storage system for HPC, Lustre-powered storage is the ideal storage foundation.

But scalable performance storage by itself only solves half the problem. Today’s users expect storage solutions that deliver sustained performance, scale upward to near limitless capacities, and are simple to install and manage. Intel(r) Enterprise Edition for Lustre* software combines the straight line speed and scale of Lustre with the bottom line need for lowered management complexity and cost.

As the recognized leaders in the development and support of the Lustre file system, Intel has the expertise to make storage solutions for data intensive applications faster, smarter and easier.

  • Building a Better Mobile Network for Video with NFV Technologies Recorded: Nov 18 2014 39 mins
    Alexander Kozlov, Chief Architect of MobiVita
    How can you improve end-to-end video quality while dealing with network congestion or RAN congestion? In this webinar MobiVita explores some of those solutions.

    Radio Access Network (RAN) congestion highly affects mobile operator service quality. Traffic peaks occur at busy hours at hot-spot areas which leads to user plane congestion, especially in RAN. It is not cost effective for operators to prepare hot-spots for worst case peak due to very high investments. Mobile operators want to reduce subscriber churn due to bad QoE while maintaining cost efficiency.

    MobiVita will present its vision on how to define RAN congestion, how to manage, and how to relieve it using the NFV deployment model. We will discuss the mechanism to manage user policy and quality-of-experience during RAN congestion in LTE networks, which gives operators powerful tools for introduction of new services and revenue streams.

    The role of open API for interacting with base stations on the edge cloud will be discussed, and MobiVita will provide an overview of API functions for RAN awareness, which can significantly improve performance of traffic optimization systems.

  • Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV) Recorded: Oct 13 2014 47 mins
    Sandra Rivera and Pranav Mehta, Intel
    The telecom industry has united to launch a game changer initiative called Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV), a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project. It will establish a carrier-grade, integrated, open source reference platform that industry peers will build together to advance the evolution of NFV and ensure consistency, performance and interoperability among multiple open source components. Because multiple open source NFV building blocks already exist, OPNFV will work with upstream projects to coordinate continuous integration and testing while filling development gaps. This Webinar will provide an overview of the new initiative and Intel's role within it, and talk about how to get involved.
  • Dynamic Programmable Service Orchestration – NFV, SDN, and Cloud Technologies Recorded: Sep 2 2014 43 mins
    Maurizio Sturlesi, CTO, Amartus and Olga Havel, Head of Product Strategy, Amartus
    NFV, SDN, and cloud combined provide the infrastructure and flexibility needed for dynamic, elastic, reliable services. However, in order to fully realize their potential, they need to be accompanied by an ingenious, agile architecture. The greatest industry pain point is not a lack of network and IT technologies that would enable dynamic, elastic, on-demand services, but the fact that end-to-end orchestration and management of these services cannot be supported by the existing static OSSs, which are too slow and cumbersome.

    This webinar from Intel and Amartus presents an innovative and dynamic approach to End-To-End Service Management & Orchestration, optimized for rapid introduction and full life cycle automation of any type of service across all domains & technologies, including Cloud, NFVs, SDNs, and traditional WAN networks. At its core lies the dynamically programmable architecture, which makes it fully customizable and extensible 'on-the-fly', and allows it to integrate with the existing infrastructure. The solution eliminates the primary problems of current OSSs – long development cycles, manual processes and costly integration, and leverages and combines both traditional WAN and new network virtualization and cloud technologies to deliver full end-to-end service orchestration and management.

  • Intel Network Builders: Carrier-Class Environment for NFV Lifecycle Management Recorded: Aug 12 2014 49 mins
    Charlie Ashton, Sr. Director, Wind River, and Prayson Pate, CTO, Overture Networks
    Communications service providers see the potential of a very strong business upside from deploying NFV-based services. NFV promises to lower costs, simplify network operations, and usher in a new era of rapid service innovation. Yet there are still concerns about running mission-critical revenue-generating network functions as software applications on general purpose compute platforms rather than purpose-built appliances.

    This webinar will explore what is required to create a carrier class, also known as carrier grade, high-performance environment for hosting virtual network functions. Attendees will learn how to leverage the power of the Intel architecture and the key attributes of management and orchestration needed to support the complete service life cycle in a VNF-agnostic service environment.
