Networking Requirements for Ethernet Scale-Out Storage

Scale-out storage is increasingly popular for cloud, high-performance computing, machine learning, and certain enterprise applications. It offers the ability to grow both capacity and performance at the same time and to distribute I/O workloads across multiple machines.

But unlike traditional local or scale-up storage, scale-out storage imposes different and more intense workloads on the network. Clients often access multiple storage servers simultaneously; data typically replicates or migrates from one storage node to another; and metadata or management servers must stay in sync with each other as well as communicating with clients. Due to these demands, traditional network architectures and speeds may not work well for scale-out storage, especially when it’s based on flash. Join this webinar to learn:

•Scale-out storage solutions and what workloads they can address
•How your network may need to evolve to support scale-out storage
•Network considerations to ensure performance for demanding workloads
•Key considerations for all flash

    Panel of experts
    For businesses with compliance and sensitive information considerations, adopting a hybrid-cloud approach is often the way forward. Sensitive information can stay in the private cloud, and public cloud providers can take on the simpler processes and workloads.

    However, although it’s the right move for many, it’s not always easy - and sometimes optimum cloud optimization protocols can fall by the wayside. In this panel, we’ll be taking a closer look at the key tenets of a good hybrid-cloud environment:

    - Cloud Management Platforms
    - Transparent ROI measurement
    - Interoperability processes
    - Privacy and backup

    Join live or on-demand to hear no-nonsense insights and guidance on the best way to build a winning hybrid-cloud environment.

  • NVMe and NVMe-oF Configuration and Manageability with Swordfish and Redfish Recorded: May 13 2020 53 mins
    Rajalaxmi Angadi, Intel; Phil Cayton, Intel; Richelle Ahlvers, Broadcom
    SNIA Swordfish is an extension of the DMTF Redfish specification to provide a unified approach for the management of storage and services in converged, hyperconverged, hyperscale, and cloud infrastructure environments. Swordfish uses a client-centric approach to develop the dynamic resource models as part of the specification, which describes client needs, management requirements, and use cases.

    NVMe-oF currently support fabric transports like RDMA (iWarp, RoCE, IB), TCP, and FC. NVMe / NVMe-oF currently lacks efficient remote configuration and provisioning management mechanisms to enable NVMe-oF scaling to large converged infrastructures – something Redfish and Swordfish can provide.

    The SNIA Swordfish specification is currently growing to include full NVMe and NVMe-oF enablement and alignment across DMTF, NVMe, and SNIA for NVMe and NVMe-oF use cases. SNIA members are contributing to specification development and helping to shape the ecosystem. This presentation will provide an overview of the work in progress to map these standards together to ensure NVMe and NVMe-oF environments can be represented entirely in Swordfish and Redfish environments.

  • Innovation in a Hybrid Cloud World: 5 pillars of modern IT ecosystem Recorded: Apr 21 2020 61 mins
    Suria Venkataraman and Amit Seth, National Student Clearinghouse
    Classic debates about whether to use public cloud or private cloud are waning as public clouds companies invest a lot in research and keep the innovation bar high. Does that mean all the enterprise functions should choose to become public cloud native? More than technology choice, is there a clear ROI?

    Hybrid clouds technologies are born out of this vacuum and both industry vendors and consumers is clearly making all the effort to bury the hard-drawn line of public vs private cloud debate - Their strategy is not distinguish boundaries stronger rather make it look weaker. Hybrid Cloud expands characteristics of Network, Compute, Storage, Services and Hardware to support modern IT ecosystem.

    Industry’s leading technology companies are investing and delivering innovating technologies to be part customer’s hybrid cloud ecosystem.

    This talk will cover:

    - Defining Hybrid Cloud
    - Traditional enablers and barriers for public vs private cloud, vacuum filled by Hybrid Cloud
    - Building Blocks of Hybrid Cloud
    - Pillars for Hybrid cloud innovation:
    - Networking
    - Compute
    - Storage
    - Hardware

  • Modernizing Enterprise: IT as Code Recorded: Mar 26 2020 45 mins
    Michael Fraser - CEO, Co-Founder, Chief Architect Refactr, Inc.
    The modern approach to delivering IT solutions for an enterprise starts with a hybrid cloud, security centric approach. Everything IT is being becoming software-defined, a.k.a. “IT-as-Code”. This requires enterprise security and ops teams to know how to connect together APIs, deploy cloud infrastructure, use automation tools, and adopt DevSecOps methodologies for delivering modern IT solutions to their stakeholders. Finding nirvana in the modern enterprise world requires this missing link: repeatable, secure IT-as-Code solution blueprints that can be agile, iterated on, and adapted to ongoing business and compliance requirements.

    In this session you will learn how to build a secure IT solution blueprint using AWS and Azure cloud native templates (IaaS & PaaS) combined with Red Hat Ansible for configuration management (Legacy apps & SaaS), and how to tie into external APIs.

    We will then discuss best practices for applying cloud security controls with every cloud service, automation task and API integration. We will discuss using open source security tools, e.g. Chef Inspec for automating compliance requirements and security remediation.

    To wrap up the session, we will go over the entire lifecycle of solution delivery adding in to the blueprints, with cloud services and other API integrations connect everything together to show own to intelligently deliver end-to-end solution blueprints and how to manage the configuration of the state of the environment over time.
