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.

Enterprises are eager to take advantage of artificial intelligence technologies such as deep learning to introduce new services and enhance insights from company data. As data science teams move past proof of concept and begin to operationalize deep learning, it becomes necessary to focus on the creation of a complete data architecture that eliminates bottlenecks to facilitate faster model iteration.
Designing a data architecture involves thinking holistically about the data pipeline, from data ingest and edge analytics, to data prep and training in the core data center, to archiving in the cloud. It is critical to understand performance requirements and data services needed, but one should also consider future extensibility and supportability as deep learning hardware and cloud approaches evolve over time.
This session will examine all the factors involved in the architecture of a data pipeline for deep learning, focusing in on data management and the hybrid cloud. Careful infrastructure planning can smooth the flow of data through your deep learning pipeline, lead to faster time to deployment, and thus maximum competitive differentiation.

Kubernetes deployments running on OpenStack clusters require a full OpenStack instance including Keystone, Nova, and Cinder services.
This talk presents a more pervasive and simplified deployment architecture by integrating Containerized standalone Cinder services with baremetal Kubernetes. Cinder services offer many storage features that are still missing in Kubernetes. Cinder is supported by many storage vendors, with over 70 storage drivers in its repository. A Containerized standalone Cinder service makes these features and extensive storage products available to Kubernetes clusters, quickly and easily.
Key to this architecture is an external Kubernetes volume provisioner that provisions Cinder volumes transparently and converts Cinder volumes to Kubernetes supported storage types, such as iSCSI, Fibre Channel, NFS, or Ceph RBD.
We'll show you how the combination of the services above with a true Next Generation Data Center Storage Solution like NetApp SolidFire simplifies and accelerates your ability to leverage persistence in a bare metal Kubernetes cluster while delivering advanced features like multi-tenancy, automation and guaranteed Quality of Service.

Imagine you went to a restaurant and ordered fish and your server came back with a Patagonian Toothfish, a pile of random spices and vegetables, a knife and a frying pan and told you to cook it yourself. Hhhmmm, you thought. So you asked for help. The response: a badly photocopied sheet of paper with a website URL to learn the ingredients for a “Chilean Sea Bass” and a few recipes to boot. This is how we build infrastructure today.

The convergence of analytical and transactional workloads, through a unified fast storage and memory infrastructure, is giving way to a new breed of fast data architectures that support real-time analytics and just-in-time data science. To enable this vision, organizations are capitalizing on recent innovations in fast storage that combine volume, velocity, and variety facets of big data all in one data tier. The combination of in-memory data grids and storage-class memory solutions (such as Intel Optane SSD/NVMe) delivers performance that removes the need for competing operational and analytical strategies for accessing data.
In-memory data grids that leverage multi-tiered storage with SCM empower businesses with the capability of unlocking high-value insights from real-time and historical data. In this webinar, we discuss the forces driving this insight-centric trend as well as reference architectures using Apache Spark and GigaSpaces XAP to address particular design challenges for streaming analytics, fast data lakes, and continuous machine learning data pipelines.
Srihari Angaluri – Lead Architect, Lenovo ThinkAgile Solutions
DevOps is streamlining the delivery of applications in the Enterprise. Container technology is transforming the packaging of these applications. Together, true agility is achieved. Red Hat OpenShift and VMware Integrated Container platforms are changing cloud services, and Lenovo works closely with both to maximize container execution.
Container technology is maturing as a way to quickly package and deploy application workloads without the need for re-purposing hardware or operating systems. Containers enable a self-sufficient runtime environment that is light weight compared to a full blown operating system or virtual machine. In addition, containers provide a way to securely compartmentalize applications and to run them side-by-side on the same machine for efficient resource utilization. In this session, we will describe how enterprises can take advantage of container technology with an integrated hardware infrastructure solution from Lenovo.
Join this webinar to learn how Lenovo helps you scale your micro services, synergizes total management, and transforms your containerized applications, infrastructure, and processes.
Nell Shamrell-Harrington, Sr. Software Development Engineer at Chef Software
One of the dreams of development is to build a software package once - and deploy it anywhere. With current open source projects, this dream is even closer than ever. Join Nell Shamrell-Harrington, Senior Software Development Engineer at Chef as she discusses how to create software packages that run (almost) anywhere with Habitat. You'll see how the same application can be run on bare metal, on a virtual machine, or in a container - with everything needed to automate that application already built into the package itself. Also learn how to build and deploy these packages with the intelligence to self-organize into topologies, without needing a central orchestrator. See how the dream of platform-agnostic and self-organizing packages is fulfilled today, and how it will evolve in the future.
