About this talk

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.
