Real World Guidance for Implementing VMware Virtual SAN on NVMe

Note: For those that weren't able to join us or would like to ask additional questions, we are repeating the content from our webinar on September 29.

VMware’s Virtual SAN 6.2 adds new capabilities that dramatically change the value of hyper-converged infrastructure for broad scale deployment. If you are considering hyper converged infrastructure, come learn from Intel and Supermicro engineers on best design practices for Virtual SAN in an All-Flash NVMe from pre-configured and pre-certified Ready Nodes to certified components that can be leveraged to design your own system for varying workload requirements. This session will also cover guidance and best practices for customers who want to design their own Virtual SAN validated solution, including best known methods for performance tuning, optimizations, and measured cost/performance metrics with CapEx and OpEx considerations.

  • Providing Containerized Cinder Services to Bare Metal Kubernetes Clusters Recorded: Dec 13 2017 36 mins
    John Griffith, SolidFire Ecosystem Engineering, NetApp
    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.

  • Bridging the Memory-Storage Gap to Accelerate Fast Data Analytics Recorded: Sep 20 2017 50 mins
    Ali Hodroj, VP Products & Strategy at GigaSpaces
    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.
  • Implement a Container Orchestration Platform Recorded: Sep 19 2017 55 mins
    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.
  • Creating Platform Agnostic Packages with Habitat Recorded: Aug 30 2017 37 mins
    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.
