Supermicro Rack Scale Design: Enabling Large Scale Modern Data Centers

Over the past 20 years, Enterprise IT has evolved from a rigid, buying all IT equipment up-front and provisioning for the next 5 years approach, to the on-demand, agile, scale-out, software defined data centers that the hyperscale companies enjoy today. But if you are not one of those hyperscale companies and need to compete with them, what do you do? Then you will need a solution like Supermicro Rack Scale Design (RSD).

Based on Intel® Rack Scale Design software framework, Supermicro RSD is a total solution comprised of Supermicro server/storage/networking hardware and an optimized rack level management software. Designed with the whole rack as the new management unit in mind, Supermicro RSD leverages industry standard Redfish RESTful APIs developed by DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) and provides the agility and efficiency for cloud scale data center operators to perform operations such as resource pooling and composability.

In this webinar, experts from Intel and Supermicro will discuss motivations behind Intel® Rack Scale Design software foundation and the unique benefits Supermicro RSD brings to cloud service providers, telecoms, and Fortune 500 companies to build their own agile, efficient, software-defined data centers.

  • WekaIO: 5 Reasons Why NAS Can’t Support Deep Learning Workloads Aug 14 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Barbara Murphy, VP of Marketing, WekaIO and David Hiatt, Director of Product Marketing, WekaIO
    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.
  • NetApp Presents: Dynamic Persistent Container Storage Provisioning with Trident Aug 9 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Pete Brey, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Open Ecosystem, NetApp and Andrew Sullivan, Technical Marketing Engineer, NetApp
    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.

  • Virtualized & Accelerated Cloud Infrastructure for Big Data workloads Jul 25 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Taufik Ma, CEO, Co-founder Attala Systems; & Colin Cunningham, Data Scientist, Intel
    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.
  • Solving the Jevons Paradox of Performance with Lenovo and Intel Optane Recorded: Jul 19 2018 51 mins
    Tony Harvey, Sr. Product Mgr, Lenovo; Vivek Sarathy, Enterprise Architect, Intel; Ori Broit, Sr. Product Mktg Mgr, VMware
    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.

  • Iguazio Presents: Delivering In-Memory Database Performance on Intel Flash Recorded: May 23 2018 60 mins
    Ori Modai, VP R&D, Iguazio
    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.
