  • Understanding Fibre Channel Scaling Nov 6 2019 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Mark Rogov, Dell EMC; Brandon Hoff, Broadcom; J Metz, Cisco
    One of Fibre Channel’s greatest strengths is its ability to scale to thousands and thousands of nodes, while providing predictable performance. So, when we say that Fibre Channel has unmatched scalability, what does that actually mean? And how does it work?

    We often hear about “designed from the ground up,” but in this case it’s actually true. From each individual link, to the overall domain architecture, each step along the way is intended to be approached in a scalable fashion.

    In this webinar, we’ll be breaking down the pieces of the puzzle that help give Fibre Channel its robustness when you’re working at fabrics even greater than 10,000 nodes. We’ll be talking about:

    •What a deterministic storage network is
    •Fabric management principles
    •Negotiated credit transfers (buffer-to-buffer credits)
    •Network Engineering/Design Principles
    •Oversubscription and Fan-In Ratios
    •Topologies that help scale
    •Domains and Fabric limits
    •Consistency of performance at scale

    Along the way, we’ll be talking about some of the ways that Fibre Channel differs from other popular storage networks as they approach large-scale environments, and how it handles issues that arise in such cases.

    Please join us on November 6th at 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ET for another educational webinar on Fibre Channel!

  • How to Be a Part of the Real-World Workload Revolution Recorded: Jul 9 2019 65 mins
    Eden KIm, CEO, Calypso Systems; Jim Fister, SNIA Solid State Storage Initiative
    Real-world digital workloads often behave very differently from what might be expected. The equipment used in a computing system may function differently than anticipated. Unknown quirks in complicated software and operations running alongside the workload may be doing more or less than the user initially supposed. To truly understand what is happening, the right approach is to test and monitor the systems’ behaviors as real code is executed. By using measured data designers, vendors and service personnel can pinpoint the actual limits and bottlenecks that a particular workload is experiencing. Join the SNIA Solid State Storage Special Interest Group to learn how to be a part of the real-world workload revolution

  • How We Approached Evaluation of ALM Octane and Now Run Agile Testing Recorded: May 16 2019 60 mins
    Gerd Fladrich, Risang Sidik
    This webinar is brought to you by the Vivit Testing Quality ALM Special Interest Group (SIG).

    Join this webinar that will demonstrate how BNP Paribas started and performed evaluation of ALM Octane and is now using the tool to run complete agile testing lifecycles. The testing lifecycle will be presented as a live demo that follows Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) methodology and uses Gherkin notation for defining test suites.

    The testing lifecycle starts with definition of requirements and user stories, heavily builds on test automation and advanced reporting, manages and synchronizes defects across tools, and feeds learnings from testing back into the requirements. It uses an integrated development and testing infrastructure including products like Confluence, Jira, Micro Focus ALM, Micro Focus ALM Octane, Jenkins, GIT, Cucumber, IntelliJ, TestCafe, and others.

    BNP Paribas’s journey with agile test automation using ALM Octane started in 2017. The webinar presents in a nutshell how evaluation of ALM Octane was approached and conducted. It explains how new methods were introduced with the objective to leverage full tool functionality. The initiative has soon helped to increase testing efficiency and created important business value.

    Webinar participants will learn:

    • How BNP Paribas has conducted evaluation of ALM Octane
    • Why ALM Octane is much more than just a successor of ALM/Quality Center
    • How ALM Octane eases flexible management of its entire surrounding tool chain
    • Why methodology like BDD shall precede tools, and not vice versa
    • How Gherkin establishes a common language for the entire agile development lifecycle that helps integrating business, development, and testing
    • How to use ALM Octane for pipeline management, reporting, defect synchronization, import of performance testing and BPT results, integration of in-sprint testing etc.
