  • Hybrid Clouds: Bridging Private & Public Cloud Infrastructures Mar 18 2015 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Every IT consumer is using cloud in one form or another, and just as storage buyers are reluctant to select single vendor for their on-premises IT, they will choose to work with multiple public cloud providers. But this desirable "many vendor" cloud strategy introduces new problems of compatibility and integration. To provide a seamless view of these discrete storage clouds, Software Defined Storage (SDS) can be used to build a bridge between them. This presentation explores how SDS, with its ability to deploy on different hardware and supporting rich automation capabilities, can extend its reach into cloud deployments to support a hybrid data fabric that spans on-premises and public clouds.

  • Cloud File Services: SMB/CIFS and NFS…in the Cloud Recorded: Oct 1 2014 61 mins
    What if you could have all of your data in the cloud with the same experience and level of control that you currently have on-premises? Introducing the concept of Cloud File Services: SMB/CIFS and the cloud!

    Companies and startups abound offering "sync & share" solutions across multiple devices and locations, but for the enterprise, caveats are everywhere. Often, only one root folder can sync, applications can't write into it, the sync protocol latency is too long, or the size limit is too small. Plus, let's face it: File Services is about a lot more than simple homedirs.

    Imagine evaporating your existing file server into the cloud. Not only will the aforementioned issues cease to exist, but also you will have the same administrative experience, the same data management functionalities, and the same protocols - SMB 3 & NFS 4.1 - that have helped redefined File Services.

    Content to cover:
    • Existing environment on-premises
    • Split administration with sync & share solutions and on-premises file services
    • Applications over File Services on-premises (SMB 3, NFS 4.1)
    • Moving to the cloud: your storage OS in a hyperscalar or service provider
    • Accommodating existing File Services workloads with Cloud File Services
    • Accommodating cloud-hosted applications over Cloud File Services
  • Delivering a Cloud Architecture Recorded: Sep 2 2014 77 mins
    This session will be an overview on developing & delivering a cloud architecture with a focus on getting the storage aspects correctly specified and defined.
