  • Transactional Models & Their Storage Requirements Oct 31 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Alex McDonald, SNIA-ESF Vice Chair, NetApp, J Metz, SNIA Board of Directors, Cisco
    We’re all accustomed to transferring money from one bank account to another; a credit to the payer becomes a debit to the payee. But that model uses a specific set of sophisticated techniques to accomplish what appears to be a simple transaction. We’re also aware of how today we can order goods online, or reserve an airline seat over the Internet. Or even simpler, we can update a photograph on Facebook. Can these applications use the same models, or are new techniques required?

    In this webcast, we’ll explore concepts like consistency, idempotency, 2 phase commit, and systems built on ACID databases stored on CRUD storage; and why in the age of distributed systems, we need to update our thinking to include eventual consistency, understand new theories such as the CAP Theorem and RESTfulness, and undertake transactional work in the face of unreliable and physically dispersed systems. We’ll then explain how all this can be accomplished with new application techniques built on modern storage systems.

    And yes, we’ll explain all the acronyms and nomenclature too.

    You will learn:

    •A brief history of transactional systems from banking to Facebook
    •How the Internet and distributed systems have changed and how we view transactions
    •An explanation of the terminology, from ACID to CAP and beyond
    •How applications, networks & particularly storage have changed to meet these demands

  • A model driven approach for cloud integration Oct 19 2017 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Omar Alassil, Kalayanjeet Gogoi, Sachin Chickballpur Venkatrao
    The “cloudification” or the “softwareization” of Telco networks are revolutionizing the products & solutions in more ways than we could have ever planned for. The impending arrival of IoT with its reliance on the cloud further exacerbates these challenges. With it come increasing opportunities not only for products but services.

    Data centers got virtualized with Compute virtualization by way of hypervisors, Storage by way of Software Defined Storage & network by way of Software Defined Networking. Telco networks are following suit with the advent of NFV but the professional services associated with it remain manual & labour intensive. The services ecosystem need to go through a disruptive innovation as well, leveraging on aspects such as automate & reuse (adopt design ONCE deploy MANY times paradigm)
    This notion of treating Professional Services (PS) as an entity which can be built once, refined many times & can be shared across projects as though they were “code” is what we are calling as Programmable Professional Services or Software Defined Services.

    This webinar focusses on the following aspects:
    - Outline the challenges faced by external customers and internal organization in the realm of Telco & Converged Cloud Data Centers
    - Provide an overview of our new Data Center services portfolio driven by centralized tools and automation, catering to all phases during the lifespan of Telco data centers such as design, build, operate, optimize & maintain
    - Provide an overview of a new way of adopting the DevOps methodology in the professional services realm to provide industrialized service development and delivery by way of templatization of work packages, automating the execution of these templates on Telco data center components.

  • Cloud Object Storage and the Use of Gateways Sep 26 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Dan Albright, Cloud Object Storage Program Manager, IBM, Alex McDonald, SNIA Cloud Storage Chair, NetApp
    The use of cloud object storage is ramping up sharply, especially in the public cloud, to reduce capital budgets and operating expenses. However, enterprises are challenged with legacy applications that do not support standard protocols to move data to and from the cloud.

    Enterprises have developed strategies specific to the public cloud for Data Protection, Archive, Application development, DevOps, Big Data Analytics and Cognitive Artificial Intelligence. However, these same organizations have legacy applications and infrastructure that are not cloud friendly.

    Object storage is a secure, simple, scalable, and cost-effective means of managing the explosive growth of unstructured data enterprises generate every day. Gateways enable SMB and NFS data transfers to be converted to Amazon’s S3 protocol while optimizing data with deduplication and providing QoS efficiency on the data path to the cloud.

    This webcast will highlight the market trends toward the adoption of object storage and the use of gateways to execute a cloud strategy, the benefits of object storage when gateways are deployed, and the use cases that are best suited to leverage this solution.

    Join this webcast to learn:
    •The benefits of object storage when gateways are deployed
    •Primary use cases for using object storage and gateways in private, public or hybrid cloud
    •How gateways can help achieve the goals of your cloud strategy without
    retooling your on-premise infrastructure and applications

  • High-Value Partnering: Why 'Sell With' is the New 'Sell Through' Recorded: Sep 20 2017 41 mins
    Rory Duncan, 451 Research, HPE, OnApp, Ormuco
    In the era of cloud, the significance of distribution to the supply chain is changing dramatically. Channel partners have moved-on from ‘tin shifting’ commoditized IT, instead working in tandem with vendors and providers to supply new kinds of complex cloud services to meet enterprise demand. As the focus moves from cloud construction to cloud consumption, the importance of these relationships increases, shifting the market opportunity to an ecosystem of connected specialists. Modern systems integrators, managed service providers and VARs are bringing higher-value, niche and vertical offerings to market that traditional ‘sell through’ models however, do not address. In this session, Rory Duncan, Research Director for Managed Services & Hosting, will outline the revised ‘sell with’ strategies that vendors and service providers alike must adopt in order to facilitate the delivery of high-growth services - including managed private cloud, security and disaster recovery – in partnership with their channel ecosystem.

    Leadership Panel Session Featuring:
    •Xavier Poisson Gouyou Beauchamps, Vice President, Indirect Digital Services, HPE
    •Caroline Paine, Sales Director - Service Providers, OnApp
    •Dan Havens, SVP of World Wide Sales, Ormuco
  • Cloud Security from the Trenches Recorded: Sep 14 2017 42 mins
    David Linthicum, SVP, Cloud Technology Partners
    If 2015’s string of high-profile data breaches has taught the enterprise anything, it is that data security is of critical importance: data security must be ensured in order to avoid breaches that can lead to disastrous brand damage, heavy fines, and severe impact to the company’s bottom line. Closely related to security and privacy is compliance, another key issue for any organization that handles protected data such as personally identifying or financial information or patient healthcare data. And efficiency and data loss can mean the difference between a successful cloud adoption and one that fails to live up to its promise.

    Join David Linthicum, SVP, Cloud Technology Partners, leading Cloud Computing visionary and thought leader, best-selling author and keynote speaker, as he takes you through a holistic approach to cloud application security and why it needs to be systemic to everything you do during cloud migration.
