  • Big Cloud Solutions for Big Data Challenges in Gaming and Mobile App Development Dec 13 2016 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Harold Smith and Glynn Bird
    For any developer, choosing the right compute infrastructure and back-end database is a critically important decision. In this webinar, we'll explore specific challenges that mobile app and game developers face and how the cloud can provide a winning solution. We’ll also explore cloud solutions for big data challenges for MMOG, built-in analytics, online and offline MOG online modes, infrastructure reference architecture, and social network and cross-platform game use cases.
  • Containers: Best Practices and Data Management Services Dec 7 2016 6:00 pm UTC 75 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 Dec 6 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 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!

  • MarFS: A Scalable Near-POSIX Name Space over Cloud Objects – New Features Recorded: Nov 22 2016 47 mins
    Kyle Lamb and David Bonnie, Storage Technical Leads, Los Alamos National Laboratory
    It has been said that Objects are for applications and POSIX is for people. The HPC community as well as many other large scale IT organizations have legacy applications and users that know, use, and depend on a near POSIX environment with real folders, ease of renaming and reshaping trees, and other powerful concepts in POSIX.

    MarFS is designed to provide a scalable near-POSIX name space over standard object systems, with target scaling out to trillions of POSIX files, hundreds of Gigabytes/sec of data bandwidth, and millions of POSIX metadata operations/sec.

    MarFS, now in use in production, has met the original developmental goals and many feature enhancements are now being developed. Features such as cloud storage flexibility enabled by a data abstraction layer, calculation of parity for incoming data, and expanded metadata scalability.

  • But What About the Data? Considering Cloud Infrastructure & IT Governance Recorded: Nov 17 2016 32 mins
    Kevin L. Jackson, Founder/CEO, GovCloud Network LLC
    With everyone now transitioning to the cloud, the number one focus seems to be on selecting the right Cloud Service Provider (CSP). While this is important, that decision must be driven by proper enterprise data governance. Since the enterprise and CSP share data security responsibilities in the cloud, a failure to align IT governance and cloud infrastructure controls with this fact will lead to yet another cloud transition failure. This webinar will provide the foresight you need for success during your organization's infrastructure transition to the cloud, and more.

  • High Availability in a Cloud Environment Recorded: Nov 15 2016 20 mins
    Amy Krishnamohan, Director of Product Marketing, MariaDB
    One of the biggest benefits of the cloud is scalability. As data grows, you can easily scale out your environment. However, as your environment grows, you also need to make sure that your environment is up and running 24X7 with zero downtime. MariaDB Cluster and MaxScale was built to solve this problem. MariaDB Cluster enables multi-master clusters, where all nodes are first-class participants, ready to receive both read and write traffic. MaxScale, a database proxy, can both balance traffic as well as manage and route the incoming transactions.

    Join this webinar to learn how to achieve high availability and scalability in a cloud environment.
