Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Networking and Cloud Phone Systems

Watch RingCentral VP of Operations, Curtis Peterson, describe how businesses in a pre-cloud world need to maintain numerous systems that are hard to run and have many diverse requirements. But when businesses move their phone systems to the cloud they shed all the unnecessary resources required to maintain things that do not provide business value, such as servers, PRIs, T1s, multiple networks, connections to the wall, etc.

  • Microservices in Business: The Pros & Cons for your IT Architecture Apr 19 2018 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Haidee McMahon, SDDC Technical Solutions Marketing Manager, Intel
    The use of microservice architectures has exploded over the past couple years, but does that mean they are right for every business? When it comes to building a business case for containers and microservices, how do you determine whether or not this model is the right fit for your organization?

    Join this live expert panel moderated by Haidee McMahon, SDDC Technical Solutions Marketing Manager at Intel, for a deeper look and discussion around deriving value from microservices. Whether in a complex data center app or a web or mobile app hosted on cloud infrastructure, what is the underlying architecture behind the scenes? What are the pros and cons from a UX/UI perspective, if any, and how do you make a case for microservices in your enterprise?
  • File vs. Block vs. Object Storage Apr 17 2018 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins

    File vs. Block vs. Object Storage

    When it comes to storage, a byte is a byte is a byte, isn’t it?

    One of the enduring truths about simplicity is that scale makes everything hard, and with that comes complexity. And when we’re not processing the data, how do we store it and access it?

    The only way to manage large quantities of data is to make it addressable in larger pieces, above the byte level. For that, we’ve designed sets of data management protocols that help us do several things: address large lumps of data by some kind of name or handle, organize it for storage on external storage devices with different characteristics, and provide protocols that allow us to programmatically write and read it.

    In this webcast, we'll compare three types of data access: file, block and object storage, and the access methods that support them. Each has its own use cases, and advantages and disadvantages; each provides simple to sophisticated data management; and each makes different demands on storage devices and programming technologies.

    Perhaps you’re comfortable with block and file, but are interested in investigating the more recent class of object storage and access. Perhaps you’re happy with your understanding of objects, but would really like to understand files better, and what advantages or disadvantages they have compared to each other. Or perhaps you want to understand how file, block and object are implemented on the underlying storage systems – and how one can be made to look like the other, depending on how the storage is accessed. Join us as we discuss and debate:

    Storage devices
    oHow different types of storage drive different management & access solutions
    oWhere everything is in fixed-size chunks
    oSCSI and SCSI-based protocols, and how FC and iSCSI fit in
    oWhen everything is a stream of bytes
    oNFS and SMB
    oWhen everything is a blob
    oHTTP, key value and RESTful interfaces
    oWhen files, blocks and objects collide

  • IT Transformation: Beyond the Traditional Data Centre Recorded: Feb 15 2018 49 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, Consulting & Advisory, Ensono
    IT Transformation projects are usually driven by the need to reduce complexity, improve agility, simplify systems, contain costs, manage ever growing data and provide more efficient operational management. Arguably, for seasoned IT professionals there is nothing new about the drivers for transformational change; it’s the velocity and scale of transformation today that’s the big challenge.

    Today, to effectively accelerate business innovation, successful IT leaders are building infrastructure that focuses on automation and flexibility, supporting agile application development and helping deliver world-class customer experience. Of course, IT teams are still under pressure to deliver legacy, mission-critical applications but they also need to support a seemingly constant flow of emerging business opportunities. They’re also tasked to lower costs, reduce Capex, while helping to drive revenue growth. That’s a lot of drivers and this complex juggling act often requires modernising infrastructure. An almost inevitable result of this is that the mix of platforms they adopt will include public cloud.

    So, does that signal the end of the corporate data centre as we know it? Well, as is so often the answer – yes and no. ‘Yes’ because there is no doubt that the complexity and cost of building and managing on-premise infrastructures is becoming increasingly unsustainable for many businesses. And ‘no’ because business continuity and stability of legacy applications are still, quite rightly, primary drivers today. But the corporate data centre may well now be a service provider’s data centre...

  • Fibre Channel Performance: Congestion, Slow Drain, and Over-Utilization, Oh My! Recorded: Feb 6 2018 66 mins
    Ed Mazurek, Cisco, Earl Apellanes, Broadcom, David Rogers, Teledyne LeCroy
    Today's Fibre Channel SANs are tasked with reliably delivering huge amounts of data with almost zero latency in an environment with a large variance of end device capabilities. Fibre Channel is a lossless network protocol but what ramifications does that have? What is considered a good SAN design and what are best practices? What situations can lead to suboptimal performance? How can a device that is not performing well affect the performance of devices even on different parts of the SAN? Can a device that is returning credits without delay affect the SAN just like a device that is returning credits slowly?

    Get answers to these questions and more in this live FCIA webcast where you’ll learn:

    •How Fibre Channel achieves a lossless data delivery
    •The definition of "slow drain“
    •Basic slow drain indications and what they mean
    •“Over” Utilization - How a device that isn't "slow drain" by the typical definition can affect a SAN in a similar fashion as a slow drain device
    •How to prevent, Identify, and resolve performance problems
