  • Applications, Hyper-Converged and the Data Center Recorded: Jul 21 2015 19 mins
    Leah Schoeb, Solutions & Performance Manager, Intel
    Hyperconverged technology is a term used to describe what some
    vendors are calling 'infrastructure in a box' or 'all-in-one solution.' Virtualization and storage
    administrators understand that it can make sense to couple virtualized
    storage with a virtualized server instance in some cases to create a
    virtualized infrastructure.
    However, there are several issues to consider before plunging into a hyperconverged deployment.

    This session will discuss the applications benefiting from a hyper converged solution and how it fits into your data center.

  • Advanced Data Reduction Concepts Recorded: Jul 10 2015 43 mins
    Sandro De Santis, SNIA Italy Committee (IBM)
    Since arriving over a decade ago, the adoption of data deduplication has become widespread throughout the storage and data protection communities. This tutorial assumes a basic understanding of deduplication and covers topics that attendees will find helpful in understanding todays deduplication design trends

    Learning Objectives

    -Have a clear understanding of current deduplication design trends
    -Have the ability to discern between various deduplication design approaches and strengths
    -Recognize new potential use cases for deduplication and other data reduction technologies in various storage environments
  • The 2015 Ethernet Roadmap For Networked Storage Recorded: Jun 30 2015 63 mins
    Scott Kipp, President of the Ethernet Alliance; Dave Chalupsky, Chair, IEEE P802.3bq/bz TFs; David Fair, Chair - SNIA-ESF
    For over three decades, Ethernet has advanced on a simple “powers-of-ten” speed increases, and this model has served the industry well. Ethernet is changing in big ways and the Ethernet Alliance has captured the latest changes in the 2015 Ethernet Roadmap. SNIA is pleased to welcome Scott Kipp, President of the Ethernet Alliance and David Chalupsky, Chair IEEE P802.3bq/bz TFs and the Ethernet Alliance BASE-T Subcommittee to present the Ethernet Alliance’s 2015 Ethernet Roadmap for the networking technology that underlies most of future network storage.

    SNIA has focused on protocols and usage models and more or less just takes Ethernet for granted. The biggest technology disruption in the storage space is the emergence into the mainstream of Non-Volatile Memory (NVM), FLASH in particular. NVM increasingly moves system bottlenecks from the storage subsystem to the network. Developments in NVM -- most recently 3D FLASH -- assure that the cost per GB will continue aggressive declines and demand for bandwidth will go up. NVM will become more prevalent, making the roadmap for Ethernet increasingly more important to the storage networking community.
  • Data Protection in Transition to the Cloud Recorded: Jun 25 2015 47 mins
    Fabio Di Niro, SNIA Italy Committee (Cisco)
    Organizations of all types and sizes are moving many, but usually not all, applications and data to public and private clouds, and the hybrid environments thus created are an increasing challenge for those responsible for data protection. There are many new services available in the cloud for backup and disaster recovery that can help, but IT managers want to avoid setting up separate data protection procedures for each of the parts of their hybrid environments.

    Learning Objectives

    - Have a clear understanding of how current trends in data protection and in cloud-based computing and storage are impacting each other.
    - Gain increased knowledge regarding new cloud-based alternative approaches for data protection.
    - Have the ability to make good decisions when changes in data protection are required by new hybrid in-house plus cloud environments.
  • Hybrid Clouds Part 2: Case Study on Building the Bridge between Private & Public Recorded: Jun 10 2015 63 mins
    Glyn Bowden, SNIA Cloud Storage Initiative Board Member; Alex McDonald, Chair, SNIA Cloud Storage Initiative
    There are significant differences in how cloud services are delivered to various categories of users. The integration of these services with traditional IT operations will remain an important success factor but also a challenge for IT managers. The key to success is to build a bridge between private and public clouds. This Webcast expands upon our earlier SNIA Hybrid Clouds Webcast where we looked at the choices and strategies for picking a cloud provider for public and hybrid solutions. Join experts from the SNIA Cloud Storage Initiative to hear:

    •Best practices to work with multiple public cloud providers
    •The role of SDS in supporting a hybrid data fabric
    •Hybrid cloud decision criteria
    •Key implementation principles
    •Real-world hybrid cloud use case

    This will be a live and interactive event, please bring your questions for our experts.
  • Block Storage in the Open Source Cloud called OpenStack Recorded: Jun 3 2015 62 mins
    Walter A. Boring, Software Engineer, HP; Alex McDonald, SNIA-ESF Vice Chair
    Storage is a major component of any cloud computing platform. OpenStack is one of several Open Source cloud computing platforms that exist in the market today. It happens to be the largest and most widely supported. The OpenStack block storage service provides persistent block storage resources that OpenStack compute instances can consume. This includes secondary attached storage similar to the Amazon Elastic Block Storage (EBS) offering. In this presentation, we will take a dive into:
    •How block storage works in OpenStack
    •What storage protocols are currently supported
    •How it all works together with computing instances
  • Persistent Memory Advances: Solutions w/ Endurance, Performance & Non-Volatility Recorded: May 28 2015 55 mins
    Mario Martinez, Director of Marketing, Netlist

This webinar will update you on the latest solutions for enterprise server and storage designs, and provide insights into future persistent memory advances. A specific focus will be NVDIMM solutions, with examples from the member companies of the SNIA NVDIMM Special Interest Group.
  • Privacy vs Data Protection Recorded: May 27 2015 44 mins
    Alex McDonald, SNIA Europe Board Member (NetApp)
    After reviewing the diverging data protection legislation in the EU member states, the European Commission (EC) decided that this situation would impede the free flow of data within the EU zone. The EC response was to undertake an effort to "harmonize" the data protection regulations and it started the process by proposing a new data protection framework. This proposal includes some significant changes like defining a data breach to include data destruction, adding the right to be forgotten, adopting the U.S. practice of breach notifications, and many other new elements. Another major change is a shift from a directive to a rule, which means the protections are the same for all 27 countries and includes significant financial penalties for infractions. This tutorial explores the new EU data protection legislation and highlights the elements that could have significant impacts on data handling practices.

    Learning Objectives:
    -This tutorial will highlight the major changes to the previous data protection directive
    -Participants will understand the differences between these key terms
    -Participants will learn the nature of the Reforms as well as the specific proposed change
The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) is a not-for-profit global organization, made up of some 400 member companies spanning virtually the entire storage industry. SNIA's mission is to lead the storage industry worldwide in developing and promoting standards, technologies, and educational services to empower organizations in the management of information.
