Evolve or die: Enterprise Storage in the Face of Sudden and Continuous Change
Storage technologies, epitomized by Intel's own solid state portfolio, are evolving faster than most organizations are capable of adopting them. In this webinar we'll discuss the dramatic dichotomy facing storage vendors today.
On one hand, they must be absolute geeks: fixated on the gory technical challenges that are involved with getting performance and efficiency out of a set of storage technologies that nobody even dreamed of about ten years ago. On the other, they must completely insulate their customers from this gory technical fixation: successful products must assemble a set of complex and rapidly evolving technologies in a way that makes the business end of storage -- protecting and presenting organizational data -- simpler and more cost-effective than ever before.

For years, we’ve talked about the virtues of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). However, at the end of the day customers who invested time, resources and significant budget, often found that the benefits of VDI came with some hefty challenges. Complexity and time-to-value are difficult enough, but striking the balance between security and anytime/anywhere/any device access with has increasingly caused headaches for IT (not to mention the users!). Traditionally, securing apps and data meant keeping everything running in the data center, requiring IT to invest in expert resources to deploy and manage everything. In this session, you will see how these challenges have been addressed and how the barriers to adopting hybrid cloud digital workspaces are a reality with Citrix Cloud services deployed on Lenovo ThinkAgile HX. You’ll learn what VDI hasn’t been able to do, is now being delivered by Citrix and Lenovo. If you’ve already deployed VDI, we’ll show you how to relieve yourself of the burden of managing and maintaining a complex VDI environment, enabling you to put resources to better use. If you haven’t deployed VDI yet, we’ll show you just how simple it is to create secure, easy-to-use, and manage intelligent workspaces you and your users have been looking for. It’s called The Future of Work, and it’s here today.

Legacy storage systems, like NAS, were architected when spinning disk and slower networking technologies were the industry standard. In this webinar, we’ll present five reasons why NAS can’t keep pace with the I/O demands of new deep learning workloads. To support these workloads, the data processing layer has to have immediate access to, and a constant supply of, data. Here NAS falls short, because the data gets bottle-necked between the compute and storage. WekaIO Matrix™ is a next-generation shared, distributed file system that visualizes the SSDs into one logical pool of fast storage presenting a global namespace to the host applications. Matrix was written from scratch to leverage the benefits of standard Intel x86 architecture combined with NVMe. The result is an easy to deploy, easy to manage storage architecture that is a radical departure from legacy NAS systems. By optimizing Matrix for flash, the storage solution is ideal for deep learning and high-performance computing workloads.
Containers are increasingly becoming an important technology across a wide variety of industries and use cases. But oftentimes, provisioning of persistent storage is an afterthought, which leaves application developers stuck in a manual world waiting for provisioning requests, and IT operations teams scrambling to meet those requests. Project Trident is a dynamic storage provisioner which eliminates these issues and delivers the persistence applications require. Compatible with Kubernetes, Docker, Rancher, and OpenShift, Trident eliminates the manual provisioning of old and delivers a truly automated and dynamic persistent storage provisioning infrastructure.
In this session, you’ll learn more about the challenge posed by persistent storage provisioning, how Trident solves those challenges, and view a demo of Trident in action.

Whether for private clouds, public clouds or a multi-user environment, IT operators require an infrastructure solution that can instantly spin-up data-intensive workloads and that can scale to support multiple big data workloads or tenants. Attala Systems and Intel have partnered to create a solution that delivers composable storage with local NVMe performance for big data workloads like Apache Hadoop and Spark. The performance available to direct-attached PCIe flash is welcome, but cloud total cost of ownership (TCO) is better when storage is shared to many hosts while offering the elasticity to meet dynamic tenant demands. The maturing of the NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) specification enables local NVMe performance over a network. With remote direct memory access (RDMA), NVMe actions and data can be transported over a fabric such as Ethernet. This brief illustrates how a complex big data analytics workload is well served by Attala Composable Storage with Intel® 3D NAND SSDs. This workload—which once struggled to scale to support concurrent customers when serviced by an iSCSI appliance or enterprise storage area network (SAN), is shown to match local NVMe performance and scale independently for two customers with no degradation in application runtime when using the NVMe-oF target.

Jevons paradox states that when a resource is used more efficiently, the consumption of that resource actually rises due to the lower prices and/or increased availability of the product. Nowhere in the data center is that more true than when you look at server performance. Storage has always been a bottleneck in compute systems because of the vast performance difference between the storage subsystem and CPU and memory. Together Lenovo, Intel and VMware address the bottleneck of storage performance in Hyperconverged systems with the introduction of Intel Optane technology to Lenovo vSAN ReadyNodes. Join us to hear how these new ReadyNodes from Lenovo will help you to increase the performance of your applications, increase VM density and still improve end-user response times.
