About this talk

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 After you watch the webcast, check out the Q&A blog http://sniaesfblog.org/?p=613
