About this talk

In this, the sixth entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” popular webcast series we look into some of the nitties and the gritties of storage details that are often assumed. When looking at data from the lens of an application, host, or operating system, it’s easy to forget that there are several layers of abstraction underneath before the actual placement of data occurs. In this webcast we are going to scratch beyond the first layer to understand some of the basic taxonomies of these layers. In this webcast we will show you more about the following: •Storage APIs and POSIX •Block, File, and Object storage •Byte Addressable and Logical Block Addressing •Log Structures and Journaling Systems It’s an ambitious project, but these terms and concepts are at the heart of where compute, networking and storage intersect. Having a good grasp of these concepts ties in with which type of storage networking to use, and how data is actually stored behind the scenes. Join us on July 6th for this session. We look forward to seeing you there! Check out the Q&A blog: http://sniaesfblog.org/?p=636
