  • The Blurring of Boundaries in a Software-Defined Data Center Recorded: Aug 17 2017 34 mins
    JR Rivers, Co-Founder & CTO, Cumulus Networks
    The software-defined data center has been a heavily touted concept over the past few years, and heralded by some as the next step in the evolution of virtualization and cloud computing. Having a data center that is governed by software, rather than dictated by hardware, can lead to more fully automated and intelligent operations. Having infrastructure elements such as networking, storage and security conceived of as a services is, indeed, an attractive concept to many.

    In this webinar we will be joined by JR Rivers, Co-Founder and CTO of Cumulus Networks, to talk about how he (and Cumulus) define the concept of a software-defined data center. He will present how the definition of a software-defined data center has evolved since its inception, and how tools like VXLAN, EVPN, Ansible and more can help organizations further their journey to a “software-defined” state and simplify network operations.

  • IP-Based Object Drives Now Have a Management Standard Recorded: Apr 20 2017 59 mins
    Erik Riedel, Dell EMC, Enrico Signoretti, OpenIO, David Slik, NetApp, Alex McDonald, NetApp
    The growing popularity of object-based storage has resulted in the development of Ethernet-connected storage devices, herein referred to as IP-Based Drives and subsystems supporting object interfaces and in some cases the ability to run localized applications.
    Typical scale-out storage nodes consist of relatively inexpensive enclosures with IP network connectivity, CPU, Memory and Direct Attached Storage (DAS). While inexpensive to deploy, these solutions become harder to manage over time.
    To ease management of these drives, SNIA has approved the release of the IP-Based Drive Management Specification. In this webcast, you’ll hear from authors of the specification who’ll discuss:

    • Major Components of the IP Based Drive Management Standard
    • How the standard leverages the DMTF Redfish management standard to manage Kinetic and other IP-Based Drives
    • Providing a standard management interface for drives that are part of JBOD or JBOF enclosures

    This standard allows drive management to scale to datacenters and beyond, enabling automation and Software Defined Datacenters.

  • How to Use the Fibre Channel Speedmap Recorded: Apr 6 2017 41 mins
    Dave Alexander, Tony Bourke
    Fibre Channel is the most well known dedicated storage networking protocol in use in data centers today, and is considered the gold standard for storage in terms of availability, reliability, and scalability. However, it does require some specific design and planning requirements. For that, storage administrators use the Fibre Channel Speedmap in order to plan.

    In this webcast, you will learn how to use the Fibre Channel Speedmap, what the numbers mean, and why its useful:

    - Why do storage administrators use the Speedmap?
    - What’s the difference between throughput, bandwidth, baud rates, and speed?
    - Why does this matter for Fibre Channel and not, say, Ethernet?

    This live webcast will be useful for anyone who wants to separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to “speeds and feeds,” and make sense of the numbers.

  • Introducing Fibre Channel NVMe Recorded: Feb 16 2017 58 mins
    Craig Carlson, FCIA Board of Directors, Cavium, J Metz, FCIA Board of Directors, Cisco
    NVMe is one of the most interesting new developments to happen to storage in the past several years, and NVMe over Fabrics extends these capabilities over a Storage Area Network. Given that 80% of all existing Flash storage solutions deployed are interconnected with Fibre Channel (FC), many questions have arisen about what it is, how it works, and why someone might want to consider using Fibre Channel for NVMe-based solutions.

    In this technical webinar, we’re going to be addressing some of these fundamental questions:

    - How does Fibre Channel and NVMe work together?
    - How is NVMe over Fabrics different from “traditional” Fibre Channel?
    - What changes do I have to make to my Fibre Channel environment in order to get NVMe over Fabrics to work?
    - What would an NVMe over Fibre Channel (FC-NVMe) architecture look like?
    - What advantages would I get using Fibre Channel in an NVMe solution?

    Check out this live webinar to learn more about this exciting new technology from the people who are developing it.
  • Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask: Buffering Recorded: Feb 14 2017 64 mins
    John Kim & Rob Davis, Mellanox, Mark Rogov, Dell EMC, Dave Minturn, Intel
    Buffers, Queues, and Caches, oh my! Buffers and Queues are part of every data center architecture, and a critical part of performance – both in improving it as well as hindering it. A well-implemented buffer can mean the difference between a finely run system and a confusing nightmare of troubleshooting. Knowing how buffers and queues work in storage can help make your storage system shine.

    However, there is something of a mystique surrounding these different data center components, as many people don’t realize just how they’re used and why. In this pod of the “Too Proud To Ask” series, we’re going to be demystifying this very important aspect of data center storage. You’ll learn:

    •What are buffers, caches, and queues, and why you should care about the differences?
    •What’s the difference between a read cache and a write cache?
    •What does “queue depth” mean?
    •What’s a buffer, a ring buffer, and host memory buffer, and why does it matter?
    •What happens when things go wrong?

    These are just some of the topics we’ll be covering, and while it won’t be exhaustive look at buffers, caches and queues, you can be sure that you’ll get insight into this very important, and yet often overlooked, part of storage design.
