  • Data Movement and Computational Storage - a Panel Discussion May 18 2021 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Moderator: Jim Fister, SNIA CMSI; Panelists: Eli Tiomkin, Chair, SNIA CS SIG, Nidish Kamath, KIOXIA, David McIntyre, Samsung
    In modern analytics deployments, latency is the fatal flaw that limits the efficacy of the overall system.  Solutions move at the speed of decision, and microseconds could mean the difference between success and failure against competitive offerings.  Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and In-Memory Analytics solutions have significantly reduced latency, but the sheer volume of data and its potential broad distribution across the globe prevents a single analytics node from efficiently harvesting and processing data.This panel discussion will feature industry experts discussing the different approaches to distributed analytics in the network and storage nodes. How does the storage providers of HDDs and SSD view the data creation and movement between the edge compute and the cloud? And how can computational storage be a solution to reduce data movement?
  • Security of Data on NVMe over Fabrics, the Armored Truck Way May 12 2021 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Claudio DeSanti, Dell; Nishant Lodha, Marvell; Hrishikesh Sathawane, Samsung; Eric Hibbard, Samsung; John Kim, NVIDIA
    With ever increasing threat vectors both inside and outside the data center, a compromised customer dataset can quickly result in a torrent of lost business data, eroded trust, significant penalties, and potential lawsuits. Vulnerabilities exist at every point when scaling out NVMe, which require data to be secured every time it leaves a server or the storage media, not only when leaving the data center. NVMe over Fabrics is poised to be the one of the most dominant transports of the future and securing and validating the vast amounts of data that would traverse this fabric is not just prudent, but paramount.

    Join the webcast to hear Industry experts discuss current and future strategies to secure and protect your mission critical data.

    You will learn:
    - Industry trends and regulations around data security
    - Potential threats and vulnerabilities
    - Existing security mechanisms and best practices
    - How to secure NVMe in flight and at rest
    - Ecosystem and market dynamics
    - Upcoming standards
  • Great Storage Debate: Hyperconverged vs. Disaggregated vs. Centralized Recorded: May 4 2021 58 mins
    Christine McMonigal, Intel; John Kim, NVIDIA; Walt O'Brien, Dell; David McIntyre, Samsung
    In the ongoing evolution of the datacenter, a popular debate involves how storage is allocated and managed. There are three competing visions about how storage should be done; those are Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI), Disaggregated Storage, and Centralized Storage.

    IT architects, storage vendors, and industry analysts argue constantly over which is the best approach and even the exact definition of each. Isn’t Hyperconverged constrained? Is Disaggregated designed only for large cloud service providers? Is Centralized storage only for legacy applications?

    Tune in to debate these questions and more:
    • What is the difference between centralized, hyperconverged, and disaggregated infrastructure, when it comes to storage?
    • Where does the storage controller or storage intelligence live in each?
    • How and where can the storage capacity and intelligence be distributed?
    • What is the difference between distributing the compute or application and distributing the storage?
    • What is the role of a JBOF or EBOF (Just a Bunch of Flash or Ethernet Bunch of Flash) in these storage models?
    • What are the implications for data center, cloud, and edge?

    Join us on May 4, 2021 for another SNIA Networking Storage Forum Great Storage Debate as leading storage minds converge to argue the definitions and merits of where to put the storage and storage intelligence.

  • NVMe-oF: Looking Beyond Performance Hero Numbers Recorded: Mar 25 2021 56 mins
    Erik Smith, Dell Technologies; Rob Davis, NVIDIA; Nishant Lodha, Marvell; Alex McDonald, SNIA NSF Vice Chair
    Over the past several years, many in the NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) ecosystem have used test results demonstrating NVMe-oF’s dramatic reduction in latency as a way to extrapolate the benefit it can provide to application consumers. To date, the focus has been on specialized fabrics like RDMA and Fibre Channel (FC).

    Unfortunately, the more important questions have been left as an exercise for the buyer: “How does the transport really impact application performance?” and “How does the transport holistically fit into my environment?”


    RDMA based fabrics (e.g., RoCE) provide the lowest possible latency, and FC provides the most reliability, but with the introduction of NVMe/TCP this conversation must also include scale, cost and operations. This webcast will attempt to answer these questions beyond “it depends.”

    Gain insights from an industry wide panel of NVMe and fabric technology experts as they discuss the thought process you can use to determine pros and cons of a fabric for your environment, including:
    • Use cases driving fabric choices
    • NVMe transports and their strengths
    • Industry dynamics driving adoption
    • Considerations for scale, security, and efficiency

  • How Video Analytics is Changing the Way We Store Video Recorded: Dec 2 2020 54 mins
    Kevin Cone, Intel; Glyn Bowden, HPE; Jim Fister, The Decision Place
    There is a new wave of cognitive services based on video and image analytics, leveraging the latest in machine learning and deep learning. In this webcast, we will look at some of the benefits and factors driving this adoption, as well as explore compelling projects and required components for a successful video-based cognitive service. This includes some great work in the open source community to provide methods and frameworks, some standards that are being worked on to unify the ecosystem and allow interoperability with models and architectures. Finally, we’ll cover the data required to train such models, the data source and how it needs to be treated.

    However, there are challenges in how we do this. Many archives were analog and tape based which doesn’t stand up well to mass ingestion or the back and forth of training algorithms. How can we start to define new architectures and leverage the right medium to make our archives accessible whilst still focusing on performance at the point of capture?

    We will discuss:

    •New and interesting use cases driving adoption of video analytics as a cognitive service
    •Work in the open source arena on new frameworks and standards
    •Modernizing archives to enable training and refinement at will
    •Security and governance where personal identifiable information and privacy become a concern
    •Plugging into the rest of the ecosystem to build rich, video centric experiences for operations staff and consumers

  • Not Again! Data Deduplication for Storage Systems Recorded: Nov 10 2020 56 mins
    Abhishek Rajimwale, Dell; John Kim, NVIDIA; Alex McDonald, SNIA NSF Vice Chair
    Organizations inevitably store multiple copies of the same data. Users and applications store the same files over and over, intentionally or inadvertently. Developers, testers and analysts keep many similar copies of the same data. And backup programs copy the same or similar files daily, often to multiple locations or storage devices. It’s not unusual to end up with some data replicated thousands of times.

    So how do we stop the duplication madness? Join this webcast where we’ll discuss how to reduce the number of copies of data that get stored, mirrored, or backed up as we discuss:

    •Should I eliminate duplicates at the desktop, server, storage or backup device?
    •Dedupe technology
    •Local vs. global deduplication
    •Avoiding or reducing data copies (non-dupe)
    •Block-level vs. file- or object-level deduplication
    •In-line vs. post-process deduplication
    •More efficient backup techniques

    Register today (but only once please) for this webcast so you can start saving space and end the extra data replication.
