Using Storage Infrastructure as an Accelerator of DevOps Maturity
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage is more capable than where we read and write data.
In this session we’ll discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.

Using Flash to substitute memory in databases can substantially increase density, reduce costs and improve durability. However, most databases access Flash through traditional storage and file system layers, utilizing only a fraction of Flash’s potential speed. As a result, companies keep using in-memory databases with expensive memory and limited data capacity and resiliency. Ori Modai will explain how to build real-time intelligent apps which run across large data sets and reach in-memory database performance with Intel’s NVMe Flash. He will describe the challenges posed by traditional database and storage architectures and will present a new database design which maximizes the value of flash, reaching 20x lower costs and 100x higher density. The session will include a technical deep dive followed by real-world customer use-cases in the fields of IoT edge and online AI applications.

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.
