  • NVMe and NVMe-oF Configuration and Manageability with Swordfish and Redfish May 13 2020 6:00 pm UTC 60 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 Apr 14 2020 7:00 pm UTC 60 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
    - Security
  • 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.

  • Multi-Cloud workloads with PaaS Recorded: Mar 25 2020 31 mins
    Mr. Jani Iivari, Azure Lead, Siili Solutions Plc.
    Multi-cloud refers to the distribution of cloud assets, software, applications, and solutions, across several cloud-hosting environments. One of the goals for multi-cloud environments is to limit the vendor lock by using multiple cloud providers. To enable a portable solution use cloud native technology like Kubernetes. What about PaaS? What are the benefits and disadvantages to set up one part of your solution to use a service from AWS and another from Azure?

    This talk will show you how to take advantage of managed PaaS offering and use the best service for the job.

    Key insights:

    - Multi-cloud PaaS benefits vs. disadvantages
    - What are the risks of multi-cloud workloads
    - How to manage the multi-cloud workloads using PaaS
    - Optimize costs — selecting the correct service

  • NGN [Ep.1] Net Win: Remaking Your Network for Next Generation Success Recorded: Mar 17 2020 56 mins
    John Burke, CIO and Principal Research Analyst, Nemertes Research
    Next-Generation Networking [Ep.1] Net Win: Remaking Your Network for Next Generation Success

    Networking is undergoing a transformation. Wireless standards and services like 5G, Wifi6, LTE and Ongo are changing how wireless WANs and private networking operate. SD-WAN is driving a sea change in how WANs are provisioned and secured. Technologists are confronting emerging use cases like edge computing and IoT.

    All of these shifts are driving the need to re-architect, re-engineer, and re-think how networking is done, from private and local networks to the WAN.

    But how should they measure success? What does it mean to “successfully” redesign a network?

    This webinar delves into the operational and business success metrics for networking, and delivers the technologies and practices that correlate with that success.

    Participants will walk away with a set of usable metrics and pointers for crafting their own success strategies for next-generation networks.

  • Getting Ready for a Multi-cloud future with Containers and Kubernetes Recorded: Nov 21 2019 49 mins
    Ritesh Patel, Co-Founder & VP of Products at Nirmata
    For the last few years, there has been an ongoing debate about multi-cloud/hybrid cloud vs single cloud approach. However, there is increasing evidence that the future will be multi-cloud. Data from a recent survey released by Forrester Research indicates:

    62% of public cloud adopters are using 2+ unique cloud environments/platforms

    74% of enterprises describe their strategy as hybrid/multi-cloud today

    So, the question is what does this mean for your applications? Does adopting multi-cloud increase management complexity? How can you effectively control and manage spend?

    In this webinar, we will discuss the benefits and challenges of a multi-cloud approach. We will see how containers are becoming a key building block for enabling application portability and how Kubernetes is becoming the toolbox across clouds. Finally, we will discuss real-world best practices for enabling multi-cloud deployments.
