  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage-Turquoise: Where Does My Data Go Aug 1 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Rob Peglar, Symbolic IO, Scott Shadley, Micron, J Metz, Cisco, Chad Hintz, Cisco
    In this, the seventh entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” popular webcast series we look into the mysticism and magic of what happens when you send your data off into the wilderness. Once you click “save,” for example, where does it actually go?

    When we start to dig deeper beyond the application layer, we often don’t understand what happens behind the scenes. It’s important to understand multiple aspects of the type of storage our data goes to along with their associated benefits and drawbacks as well as some of the protocols used to transport it.

    In this webcast we will show you more about the following:

    •Volatile v Non-Volatile v Persistent Memory
    •NVDIMM v RAM v DRAM v SLC v MLC v TLC v NAND v 3D NAND v Flash v SSDs v NVMe
    •NVMe (the protocol)

    Many people get nervous when they see that many acronyms, but all too often they come up in conversation, and you’re expected to know all of them? Worse, you’re expected to know the differences between them, and the consequences of using them? Even worse, you’re expected to know what happens when you use the wrong one?

    We’re here to help.

    It’s an ambitious project, but these terms and concepts are at the heart of where compute, networking and storage intersect. Having a good grasp of these concepts ties in with which type of storage networking to use, and how data is actually stored behind the scenes.

    Please join us on August 1st for another edition of the “Too Proud To Ask” series, as we work towards making you feel more comfortable in the strange, mystical world of storage.

  • Rockin’ and Rollin’ with SMB3 Recorded: Apr 5 2017 69 mins
    Ned Pyle, SMB Program Manager, Microsoft, John Kim, SNIA-ESF Chair, Mellanox
    Server Message Block (SMB) is the core file-transfer protocol of Windows, MacOS and Samba, and has become widely deployed. It’s ubiquitous - a 30-year-old family of network code.

    However, the latest iteration of SMB3 is almost unrecognizable when compared to versions only a few years old. Extensive reengineering has led to advanced capabilities that include multichannel, transparent failover, scale out, and encryption. SMB Direct makes use of RDMA networking, creates block transport system and provides reliable transport to zetabytes of unstructured data, worldwide.

    SMB3 forms the basis of hyper-converged and scale-out systems for virtualization and SQL Server. It is available for a variety of hardware devices, from printers, network-attached storage appliances, to Storage Area Networks (SANs). It is often the most prevalent protocol on a network, with high-performance data transfers as well as efficient end-user access over wide-area connections.

    In this SNIA-ESF Webcast, Microsoft’s Ned Pyle, program manager of the SMB protocol, will discuss the current state of SMB, including:

    •Brief background on SMB
    •An overview of the SMB 3.x family, first released with Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, MacOS 10.10, Samba 4.1, and Linux CIFS 3.12
    •What changed in SMB 3.1.1
    •Understanding SMB security, scenarios, and workloads
    •The deprecation and removal of the legacy SMB1 protocol
    •How SMB3 supports hyperconverged and scale-out storage

  • The Art of Storage Management Recorded: Dec 15 2016 62 mins
    George Crump, Curtis Preston
    Any organization that takes a moment to study the data on their primary storage system will quickly realize that the majority (as much as 90 percent) of data that is stored on it has not been accessed for months if not years. Moving this data to a secondary tier of storage could free up massive amount of capacity, eliminating a storage upgrade for years. Making this analysis frequently is called data management, and proper management of data can not only reduce costs it can improve data protection, retention and preservation.
  • Containers: Best Practices and Data Management Services Recorded: Dec 7 2016 57 mins
    Keith Hudgins, Tech Alliances, Docker, Andrew Sullivan, Tech Marketing Engineer, NetApp, Alex McDonald, Chair SNIA-CSI
    Now that you have become acquainted with basic container technologies and the associated storage challenges in supporting applications running within containers in production; let’s take a deeper dive into what differentiates this technology from what you are used to with virtual machines. Containers can both complement virtual machines and also replace them as they promise the ability to scale exponentially higher. They can easily be ported from one physical server to another or to one platform—such as on-premise—to another—such as public cloud providers like Amazon AWS. In this Webcast, we’ll explore “container best practices” that discuss how to address the various challenges around networking, security and logging. We’ll also look at what types of applications more easily lend themselves to a microservice architecture versus which applications may require additional investment to refactor/re-architect to take advantage of microservices.

    Brad Booth, Microsoft, Brad Smith, Mellanox, Vittal Balasubramanian, Dell, Fred Zhang, Intel, John Kim, Mellanox
    When the SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum (ESF) last looked at the Ethernet Roadmap for Networked Storage in 2015, we anticipated a world of rapid change. The list of advances in 2016 is nothing short of amazing:

    •New adapters, switches, and cables have been launched supporting 25, 50, and 100Gb Ethernet speeds including support from major server vendors and storage startups
    •Multiple vendors have added or updated support for RDMA over Ethernet
    •The growth of NVMe flash and release of the NVMe over Fabrics standard are driving demand for both faster speeds and lower latency in networking
    •The growth of cloud, virtualization, hyper-converged infrastructure, object storage, and containers are all increasing the popularity of Ethernet as a storage fabric

    The world of Ethernet in 2017 promises more of the same. Now we revisit the topic with a look ahead at what’s in store for Ethernet in 2017. With all the incredible advances and learning vectors, SNIA ESF is here to help you keep up. Here’s some of the things to keep track of in the upcoming year:
    •Learn what is driving the adoption of faster Ethernet speeds and new Ethernet storage models
    •Understand the different copper and optical cabling choices available at different speeds and distances
    •Debate how other connectivity options will compete against Ethernet for the new cloud and software-defined storage networks
    •And finally look ahead with us at what Ethernet is planning for new connectivity options and faster speeds such as 200 and 400 Gigabit Ethernet

    The momentum is strong with Ethernet, and we’re here to help you keep on top of the lightning-fast changes.

  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask/Mauve Recorded: Nov 1 2016 51 mins
    Fred Knight, NetApp, John Kim, Mellanox, Chad Hintz, Cisco, Dror Goldenberg, Mellanox, J Metz, Cisco
    In this part of the series, “Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” we’re going to be focusing on the network aspect of storage systems.

    As with any technical field, it’s too easy to dive into the jargon of the pieces and expect people to know exactly what you mean. Unfortunately, some of the terms may have alternative meanings in other areas of technology. In this Webcast, we look at some of those terms specifically and discuss them as they relate to storage networking systems.

    In particular, you’ll find out what we mean when we talk about:

    •Channel versus Busses
    •Control Plane versus Data Plane
    •Fabric versus Network

    For people who are familiar with Data Center Technology, whether it be Compute, Programming, or even Storage itself, some of these concepts may seem intuitive and obvious… until you start talking to people who are really into this stuff. This series of Webcasts will help be your Secret Decoder Ring to unlock the mysteries of what is going on when you hear these conversations.

  • SDN — The New Networking Stack Recorded: Jun 15 2016 54 mins
    Dr. Jim Metzler, Co-Founder & Principal Analyst at Ashton, Metzler & Associates; Todd Krautkremer, SVP, Cradlepoint
    In less than a decade, virtualization and cloud technologies have transformed enterprise computing from top (applications) to bottom (storage).

    During this time, computing has evolved from a tiered and operationally isolated architecture of front-end, application, database and storage servers — each tier having its own teams, processes, tools, and manual functions — to a tightly integrated, fully automated “stack” that’s orchestrated with a common set of people and tools.

    Because of this unification and automation of the computing stack, enterprises can now instantly deploy workloads across private and public clouds with ease. While this evolution has been occurring on the computing side of IT, networks have remained largely unchanged. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies are about to change that.

    Join Cradlepoint and analyst Dr. Jim Metzler in a discussion about SDN and NFV and how they are creating the new networking stack.
The software-defined data center
Virtualization is no longer a passing trend. Organization deploying it in their servers, desktops, storage and networks are experiencing increased performance and decreased costs, when implemented and managed properly. Join this channel to hear leading experts discuss this maturing technology and how you can create your own software-defined data center.
