NVMe is a promising technology and, considering that going all-flash is pretty common today, it is important to explore its potential. That's why Intel, Mellanox, StarWind, and Supermicro have teamed up on building the world’s fastest hyper-converged infrastructure! We’ve designed a 12-node all-NVMe setup that showcases how great IT environments can perform once stock hardware is configured properly and right software is in place. 26.8M IOPS, which makes 100% of underlying storage performance, is the high score the modern hyper-converged environments deserve!
Matching and scaling the right infrastructure to ever-changing micro-services deployments is a big challenge to many organizations. Spotinst Ocean provides an abstraction layer allowing to deploy Kubernetes or any containerized cluster without the need to manage the underlying VMs.

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.
