  • What Does Hyperconverged Mean to Storage Mar 15 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Greg Schulz, founder and analyst of Server StorageIO, John Kim, SNIA-ESF Chair, Mellanox
    Converged Infrastructure (CI), Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) along with Cluster or Cloud In Box (CIB) are popular trend topics that have gained both industry and customer adoption. As part of data infrastructures, CI, CIB and HCI enable simplified deployment of resources (servers, storage, I/O networking, hardware, software) across different environments. However, what do these approaches mean for a hyperconverged storage environment? What are the key concerns and considerations related specifically to storage? Most importantly, how do you know that you’re asking the right questions in order to get to the right answers?

    Find out in this live SNIA-ESF webcast where expert Greg Schulz, founder and analyst of Server StorageIO, will move beyond the hype to discuss:

    · What are the storage considerations for CI, CIB and HCI
    · Fast applications and fast servers need fast server storage I/O
    · Networking and server storage I/O considerations
    · How to avoid aggravation-causing aggregation (bottlenecks)
    · Aggregated vs. disaggregated vs. hybrid converged
    · Planning, comparing, benchmarking and decision-making
    · Data protection, management and east-west I/O traffic
    · Application and server I/O north-south traffic
  • Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask: Buffering Feb 14 2017 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    John Kim & Rob Davis, Mellanox, Mark Rogov, Dell EMC, Dave Minturn, Intel, Alex McDonald, NetApp
    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.

  • Monitor with Discipline – Data Center 2020 Jan 26 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Kong Yang, Head Geek of Virtualization & Cloud Practice, SolarWinds
    The data center is evolving to encompass all manners of architecture from server-less aka functions-as- a-service to containers and microservices while balancing more mature constructs like virtualization and software-defined constructs. The reality is that the same fundamental issues abound while new challenges will appear.

    In this session, we will discuss how to monitor data centers with discipline to handle the old and new pain points that will arise in 2020.

    - What will 2020 data centers look like? Who will be the key providers of services?

    - How do I keep my career viable in 2020?

    - What should I put into practice to deliver success in 2020 data centers?

  • The Art of Storage Management Recorded: Dec 15 2016 62 mins
    George Crump, Curtis Preston
    Any organization that takes a moment to study the data on their primary storage system will quickly realize that the majority (as much as 90 percent) of data that is stored on it has not been accessed for months if not years. Moving this data to a secondary tier of storage could free up massive amount of capacity, eliminating a storage upgrade for years. Making this analysis frequently is called data management, and proper management of data can not only reduce costs it can improve data protection, retention and preservation.

  • Hyperscale Cloud – Reimagining the Data Center Recorded: Nov 24 2016 41 mins
    Hammad Tariq, Technology and Information Manager, Ericsson
    In every industry, demand for IT capacity continues to grow. Digitalization, the Internet of Things and cloud computing are just a few of the factors that require vastly increased compute, data and networking resources.
    The solution is to go hyperscale: in other words, to reimagine the data center in order to scale beyond the cost and capacity limitations of today’s architecture. Hyperscale data centers are smarter, more flexible and better able to achieve increased resource utilization levels while reducing total cost of ownership
  • Cloud Infrastructures – Leveraging Software Defined Data Infrastructures (SDDI) Recorded: Nov 22 2016 45 mins
    Greg Schulz, Founder/Sr. Advisory Analyst, Server StorageIO
    At the core of cloud (public, private, hybrid) next generation data centers are software defined data infrastructures that exist to protect, preserve and serve applications, data along with their resulting information services. Software defined data infrastructure core components include hardware, software servers and storage configured (defined) to provide various services enabling application Performance Availability Capacity and Economics (PACE). Just as there are different types of environments, applications along with workloads various options, technologies as well as techniques exist for cloud services (and underlying data infrastructures). Join us in this session to discuss trends, technologies, tools, techniques and services options for cloud infrastructures.

    Topics include:
    - Data Infrastructures exist to support applications and their underlying resource needs
    - Software Defined Infrastructures (SDDI) are what enable Software Defined Data Centers and clouds
    - Various types of clouds along with cloud services that determine how resources get defined

  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask/Mauve Recorded: Nov 1 2016 51 mins
    Fred Knight, NetApp, John Kim, Mellanox, Chad Hintz, Cisco, Dror Goldenberg, Mellanox, J Metz, Cisco
    In this part of the series, “Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” we’re going to be focusing on the network aspect of storage systems.

    As with any technical field, it’s too easy to dive into the jargon of the pieces and expect people to know exactly what you mean. Unfortunately, some of the terms may have alternative meanings in other areas of technology. In this Webcast, we look at some of those terms specifically and discuss them as they relate to storage networking systems.

    In particular, you’ll find out what we mean when we talk about:

    •Channel versus Busses
    •Control Plane versus Data Plane
    •Fabric versus Network

    For people who are familiar with Data Center Technology, whether it be Compute, Programming, or even Storage itself, some of these concepts may seem intuitive and obvious… until you start talking to people who are really into this stuff. This series of Webcasts will help be your Secret Decoder Ring to unlock the mysteries of what is going on when you hear these conversations.
