  • Fibre Channel Performance: Congestion, Slow Drain, and Over-Utilization, Oh My! Feb 6 2018 6:00 pm UTC 75 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

    Register today for this live event. Our experts will be on hand to answer your questions.
  • FC vs. iSCSI Jan 31 2018 7:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Fred Knight, NetApp, John Kim, SNIA ESF Chair, Mellanox, Alex McDonald, SNIA ESF Vice Chair, NetApp
    In the enterprise, block storage typically handles the most critical applications such as database, ERP, product development, and tier-1 virtualization. The dominant connectivity option for this has long been Fibre Channel SAN (FC-SAN), but recently many customers and block storage vendors have turned to iSCSI instead. FC-SAN is known for its reliability, lossless nature, 2x FC speed bumps, and carefully tested interoperability between vendors. iSCSI is known for running on ubiquitous Ethernet networks, 10x Ethernet speed bumps, and supporting commodity networking hardware from many vendors.

    Because, FCoE also delivers increasing performance as Ethernet speeds increase – and, Fibre Channel also delivers increasing performance as FC speeds increase. Historically, FC delivered speed bumps at a more rapid interval (2x bumps), while Ethernet delivered their speed bumps at a slower pace (10x bumps), but that has changed recently with Ethernet adding 2.5G, 5G, 25G, 40G, and 50G to the traditional 1G, 10G, 100G timeline.

    As the storage world moves to more flash and other non-volatile memory, more cloud, and more virtualization (or more containers), it’s time to revisit one of the great IT debates: Should you deploy Fibre Channel or iSCSI? Attend this SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum webcast to learn:
    •Will Fibre Channel or iSCSI deliver faster performance? Does it depend on the workload?
    •How is the wire speed race going between FC and iSCSI? Does anyone actually run iSCSI on 100GbE? When will 128Gb Fibre Channel arrive?
    •Can any server or storage array actually support more than 32Gb/s or 40Gb/s speeds?
    •Do Linux, Windows, or hypervisors have a preference?
    •Is one really easier [to install/manage] than the other, or are they just different?
    •How does the new NVMe over Fabrics protocol affect this debate?

    Join SNIA experts as they compare FC vs. iSCSI and argue in an energetic yet friendly way about their differences and merits of each.

  • Unprotected Files on a Public Cloud Server: Live Panel on the NSA Data Leak Recorded: Dec 8 2017 59 mins
    Chris Vickery, George Crump, David Linthicum, Charles Goldberg, Mark Carlson
    Public, private and hybrid cloud are nothing new, but protecting sensitive data stored on these servers is still of the utmost concern. The NSA is no exception.

    It recently became publicized that the contents of a highly sensitive hard drive belonging to the NSA (National Security Agency) were compromised. The virtual disk containing the sensitive data came from an Army Intelligence project and was left on a public AWS (Amazon Web Services) storage server, not password-protected.

    This is one of at least 5 other leaks of NSA-related data in recent years. Not to mention the significant number of breaches and hacks we’ve experienced lately, including Yahoo!, Equifax, WannaCry, Petya, and more.

    The culprit in this case? Unprotected storage buckets. They have played a part in multiple other recent exposures, and concern is on the rise. When it comes to storing data on public cloud servers like AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Rackspace and more, what are the key responsibilities of Storage Architects and Engineers, CIOs and CTOs to avoid these types data leaks?

    Tune in with Chris Vickery, Director of Cyber Risk Research at UpGuard and the one who discovered the leak, along with George Crump, Chief Steward, Storage Switzerland, David Linthicum, Cloud Computing Visionary, Author & Speaker, Charles Goldberg, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, Thales e-Security, and Mark Carlson, Co-Chair, SNIA Technical Council & Cloud Storage Initiative, for a live panel discussion on this ever-important topics.

  • FCIP (Extension): Data Protection and Business Continuity Recorded: Dec 7 2017 59 mins
    Rupin Mohan, Director R&D, SAN Chief Technologist, HPE, Mark Detrick, Director, Extension Principal Architect, Brocade
    Businesses today rely heavily on their data. Disaster may strike anywhere and occurs in many shapes and sizes. Transporting data over significant distance beyond the reach of a threatening event preserves data so organizations can rapidly recover in the event of a site going down.

    This makes deploying a disaster recovery infrastructure between data centers with fast, continuous, and easy replication of mission-critical data to anywhere in the world essential.
    Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP), often referred to as “Extension,” is used to connect SANs across distance using IP networks. FCIP is commonly used for Remote Data Replication (RDR) between Enterprise Storage Arrays and Remote Tape applications, for the purpose of Business Continuance via Disaster Recovery (BC/DR).

    Join storage technology and industry experts as they discuss their experience and deployment knowledge in:

    •Best known methods for deployment with extension architectures, extension in routed topologies, and performance optimization for remote replication
    •Industry best practices: topologies to achieve high-availability goals, advantages in trunking, encryption, etc…
    •Customer examples and use cases of a variety of critical production environments ranging from SMBs to the largest most demanding enterprises and government institutions
  • Automation – are the robots really coming? Recorded: Dec 7 2017 42 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, Technology Evangelist, Ensono
    Many analysts are returning to automation as a re-emerging focus for organisations in 2018 as they struggle to be able to deliver solutions to their customers faster and more efficiently. Automation has been declared as the game changing solution for many years so will it be any different this time?

    In this webinar, Simon Ratcliffe explores why automation is yet to become a ubiquitous across technology and what factors still stand in the way of the automation of everything. The core technology is stable and proven but the implementations are rarely entirely successful with many automation projects resulting in more staff after they are complete and many being reversed out as costs outweigh benefits.
  • Monitor with Discipline – 2018 IT Predictions Recorded: Dec 6 2017 33 mins
    Kong Yang, Head Geek of Virtualization & Cloud Practice, SolarWinds
    Change is coming fast and furious. And in the eye of the storm are applications. I’ve seen entire IT departments go into scramble drills to see if they possessed the necessary personnel and talent to bridge the gap as their organizations embraced digital transformation. And by digital transformation, I mean the ubiquitous app or service that can be consumed from anywhere on any device at any given time. For organizations, it’s all about making money all the time from every possible engagement. Remove the barrier to consume and make the organization more money is what digital transformation is all about. So what will happen in 2018?

    In this session, I will discuss my top three IT predictions for 2018 and discuss how IT professionals can remain valuable in their IT careers in the face of continuous integration and continuous delivery.

    · What are my top three 2018 predictions?
    · What skills do I need to remain relevant?
