  • RoCE vs. iWARP Aug 22 2018 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Tim Lustig, Mellanox; Fred Zhang, Intel; John Kim, Mellanox
    Network-intensive applications, like networked storage or clustered computing, require a network infrastructure with high bandwidth and low latency. Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) supports zero-copy data transfers by enabling movement of data directly to or from application memory. This results in high bandwidth, low latency networking with little involvement from the CPU.

    In the next SNIA ESF “Great Storage Debates” series webcasts, we’ll be examining two commonly known RDMA protocols that run over Ethernet; RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) and IETF-standard iWARP. Both are Ethernet-based RDMA technologies that reduce the amount of CPU overhead in transferring data among servers and storage systems.

    The goal of this presentation is to provide a solid foundation on both RDMA technologies in a vendor-neutral setting that discusses the capabilities and use cases for each so that attendees can become more informed and make educated decisions.

    Join to hear the following questions addressed:

    •Both RoCE and iWARP support RDMA over Ethernet, but what are the differences?
    •Use cases for RoCE and iWARP and what differentiates them?
    •UDP/IP and TCP/IP: which uses which and what are the advantages and disadvantages?
    •What are the software and hardware requirements for each?
    •What are the performance/latency differences of each?

    Join our SNIA experts as they answer all these questions and more on this next Great Storage Debate

  • Cloud Mobility and Data Movement Recorded: Aug 7 2018 60 mins
    Eric Lakin, University of Michigan; Michelle Tidwell, IBM; Alex McDonald, NetApp
    We’re increasingly in a multi-cloud environment, with potentially multiple private, public and hybrid cloud implementations in support of a single enterprise. Organizations want to leverage the agility of public cloud resources to run existing workloads without having to re-plumb or re-architect them and their processes. In many cases, applications and data have been moved individually to the public cloud. Over time, some applications and data might need to be moved back on premises, or moved partially or entirely from one cloud to another.

    That means simplifying the movement of data from cloud to cloud. Data movement and data liberation – the seamless transfer of data from one cloud to another – has become a major requirement.

    In this webcast, we’re going to explore some of these data movement and mobility issues with real-world examples from the University of Michigan. Register now for discussions on:

    •How do we secure data both at-rest and in-transit?
    •Why is data so hard to move? What cloud processes and interfaces should we use to make data movement easier?
    •How should we organize our data to simplify its mobility? Should we use block, file or object technologies?
    •Should the application of the data influence how (and even if) we move the data?
    •How can data in the cloud be leveraged for multiple use cases?
  • UCC Series [Ep. 9]: Finding the Most Affordable UCC Provider Recorded: Aug 7 2018 46 mins
    Robin Gareiss, President & Founder, Nemertes Research
    The price you pay for your UCC subscription, software, servers, or licenses is only part (and often, a small part) of your overall costs for UCC. And there are differences depending on your selected architecture and vendor.

    Nemertes has researched what companies actually spend on UCC for 14 years now. In this webinar, we will share some of the key metrics you should consider when selecting a UCC provider—along with real-world data on what it costs to operate various providers. We will cover:

    • What are the differences in operational costs, by size of rollout, for select providers?
    • How do those costs change if you decide on a cloud vs. on-premise rollout?
    • What are the top 5 questions I should ask in my UCC RFP?

    We also will demonstrate Nemertes’ UCC Cost Analysis Tool, an interactive tool that uses Nemertes’ research data to deliver actual costs customized to your organization.
  • IT Ops: SIG Talk Series - OpenStack Cloud & SUSE Integration [Complete Edition] Recorded: Aug 6 2018 46 mins
    Dr. Kenneth Tan
    This Vivit SIG Talk session will feature a thought leader who will share his vast knowledge and experience with OpenStack Cloud. Join us to hear a customer story on how a full OpenStack solution increased productivity and its implementation from start to finish.

    Speaker: Dr. Kenneth Tan
    How to build an OpenStack cloud in Academic sector: University of Edinburgh: University of Edinburgh: The popularity of private cloud adoption even in the academic sector is rapidly rising. Today, OpenStack in academia is not just a subject we discussed at summits or conferences anymore. But how can you successfully adopt OpenStack when even log management and monitoring seems to be piecemeal for operators? It is clear that full OpenStack solution would be beneficial for efficient, automated, and cost effective cloud computing solutions, without requiring large OpenStack operations teams. Not all operators have the luxury of having teams dedicated to operate OpenStack.

    During the presentation we will talk about how University of Edinburgh is more productive than ever with a full OpenStack solutions - Deploy, Operate, Upgrade, about how we put into production in 8 weeks the research services department of one of the UK’s largest academic private cloud system, and what is still missing for OpenStack to make the adoption of cloud computing more flexible and self-served.
  • DCX Series [Ep.1]: The Technologies & Vendors Driving Customer Engagement Recorded: Jul 31 2018 44 mins
    Robin Gareiss, President & Founder, Nemertes Research
    Hundreds of companies, both old and new, are providing technology designed to improve customer engagement, ultimately raising customer experience scores. Everything from contact center to CRM to user sentiment to in-app contextual communications to many more areas are part of the customer engagement movement.

  • Legacy Modernisation: Overcoming the Transformation Barriers Recorded: Jun 27 2018 58 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, Principal Consultant, Ensono, Kevin Stoodley, CTO, IBM Z Series, & Alex Hilton, CEO, CIF
    A recent survey conducted by Ensono, in partnership with the Cloud Industry Forum, showed that 89% of respondents believed that legacy technology was a barrier to effective digital transformation. Given that many organisations operate a complex technology landscape often with elements in different locations, and with core components that are regarded as ‘legacy but critical’, there needs to be a clear and simple approach to overcoming these obstacles.

    Breaking down the barriers requires effective change in people, process and technology to attain a viable level velocity that will enable transformation without being held back by perceptions of legacy issues.

    Examining these issues, this webinar will provide insight and thought provoking approaches for organisations seeking to transform their operations against this backdrop.
  • IT Ops SIG Talk Ep. 7: Integrate IBM mainframe & iSeries (AS/400) into MF UD Recorded: Jun 21 2018 15 mins
    Chip Sutton
    Integrate IBM mainframe & iSeries (AS/400) into Micro Focus Universal Discovery

    IBM Mainframe and IBM i (iSeries-AS/400) environments continue to play a very critical part in today’s corporate IT infrastructures, processing some of the most valued and important data. Learn how one of the world’s largest insurance companies brought their IBM environments into the modern era by extending their Micro Focus Universal Discovery (UD) platform to include the key IBM systems.

    The company’s former process of conducting manual audits was a time consuming, resource intensive, and outdated way of doing things at best. Attendees will:

    •Learn how the combination of Micro Focus Software and EView Technology provided a cost-effective, comprehensive, automated, and real-time view of their business services across their multi-IBM system enterprise
    •Hear a brief overview of the architecture of the solution and the business benefits

  • FCoE vs. iSCSI vs. iSER Recorded: Jun 21 2018 62 mins
    J Metz, Cisco; Saqib Jang, Chelsio; Rob Davis, Mellanox; Tim Lustig, Mellanox
    The “Great Storage Debates” webcast series continues, this time on FCoE vs. iSCSI vs. iSER. Like past “Great Storage Debates,” the goal of this presentation is not to have a winner emerge, but rather provide vendor-neutral education on the capabilities and use cases of these technologies so that attendees can become more informed and make educated decisions.

    One of the features of modern data centers is the ubiquitous use of Ethernet. Although many data centers run multiple separate networks (Ethernet and Fibre Channel (FC)), these parallel infrastructures require separate switches, network adapters, management utilities and staff, which may not be cost effective.

    Multiple options for Ethernet-based SANs enable network convergence, including FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) which allows FC protocols over Ethernet and Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) for transport of SCSI commands over TCP/IP-Ethernet networks. There are also new Ethernet technologies that reduce the amount of CPU overhead in transferring data from server to client by using Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA), which is leveraged by iSER (iSCSI Extensions for RDMA) to avoid unnecessary data copying.

    That leads to several questions about FCoE, iSCSI and iSER:

    •If we can run various network storage protocols over Ethernet, what
    differentiates them?
    •What are the advantages and disadvantages of FCoE, iSCSI and iSER?
    •How are they structured?
    •What software and hardware do they require?
    •How are they implemented, configured and managed?
    •Do they perform differently?
    •What do you need to do to take advantage of them in the data center?
    •What are the best use cases for each?

    Join our SNIA experts as they answer all these questions and more on the next Great Storage Debate.
