  • What Does Hyperconverged Mean to Storage Mar 15 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Greg Schulz, founder and analyst of Server StorageIO, John Kim, SNIA-ESF Chair, Mellanox
    Converged Infrastructure (CI), Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) along with Cluster or Cloud In Box (CIB) are popular trend topics that have gained both industry and customer adoption. As part of data infrastructures, CI, CIB and HCI enable simplified deployment of resources (servers, storage, I/O networking, hardware, software) across different environments. However, what do these approaches mean for a hyperconverged storage environment? What are the key concerns and considerations related specifically to storage? Most importantly, how do you know that you’re asking the right questions in order to get to the right answers?

    Find out in this live SNIA-ESF webcast where expert Greg Schulz, founder and analyst of Server StorageIO, will move beyond the hype to discuss:

    · What are the storage considerations for CI, CIB and HCI
    · Fast applications and fast servers need fast server storage I/O
    · Networking and server storage I/O considerations
    · How to avoid aggravation-causing aggregation (bottlenecks)
    · Aggregated vs. disaggregated vs. hybrid converged
    · Planning, comparing, benchmarking and decision-making
    · Data protection, management and east-west I/O traffic
    · Application and server I/O north-south traffic
  • Long-term Data Retention: Challenges, Standards and Best Practices Feb 16 2017 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Simona Rabinovici-Cohen, IBM, Phillip Viana, IBM, Sam Fineberg
    The demand for digital data preservation has increased drastically in recent years. Maintaining a large amount of data for long periods of time (months, years, decades, or even forever) becomes even more important given government regulations such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, OSHA, and many others that define specific preservation periods for critical records.

    While the move from paper to digital information over the past decades has greatly improved information access, it complicates information preservation. This is due to many factors including digital format changes, media obsolescence, media failure, and loss of contextual metadata. The Self-contained Information Retention Format (SIRF) was created by SNIA to facilitate long-term data storage and preservation. SIRF can be used with disk, tape, and cloud based storage containers, and is extensible to any new storage technologies. It provides an effective and efficient way to preserve and secure digital information for many decades, even with the ever-changing technology landscape.
Join this webcast to learn:
    •Key challenges of long-term data retention
    •How the SIRF format works and its key elements
    •How SIRF supports different storage containers - disks, tapes, CDMI and the cloud
    •Availability of Open SIRF

    SNIA experts that developed the SIRF standard will be on hand to answer your questions.

  • 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.
  • IoT Standardization and Implementation Challenges Recorded: Dec 6 2016 62 mins
    Professor Ahmed Banafa, College of Engineering, San Jose State University
    The rapid evolution of the IoT market has caused an explosion in the number and variety of IoT solutions. Additionally, large amounts of funding are being deployed at IoT startups. Consequently, the focus of the industry has been on manufacturing and producing the right types of hardware to enable those solutions. In current model, most IoT solution providers have been building all components of the stack, from the hardware devices to the relevant cloud services or as they would like to name it as “IoT solutions”, as a result, there is a lack of consistency and standards across the cloud services used by the different IoT solutions.

    As the industry evolves, the need for a standard model to perform common IoT backend tasks, such as processing, storage, and firmware updates, is becoming more relevant. In that new model, we are likely to see different IoT solutions work with common backend services, which will guarantee levels of interoperability, portability, and manageability that are almost impossible to achieve with the current generation of IoT solutions.

    Join Ahmed Banafa, Professor at SJSU and named as the "number one tech voice to follow" on LinkedIn, in this engaging and informative all-about-IoT webinar!
