Redefining Storage Scalability For Cloud Computing and Big Data

Scalability is a storage term that needs to be reassessed when it comes to Big Data and current compute models. Simply stated, cloud computing, virtualization, and business analytics have different requirements for scalability of storage than previous datacenter or local area network paradigms. DDN has developed solutions for how Big Data can be optimized for private and public Cloud Computing, as well as setting a path to Exascale computing. Join DDN to discuss new approaches to storage scalability, and become part of the dialogue around how to remove Big Data storage scalability as the bottleneck in your workflow.

  • Cloud Analytics Drives Airplanes-as-a-Service Business Recorded: Apr 7 2021 58 mins
    Ben Howard, KinectAir; Glyn Bowden, HPE; Jim Fister, The Decision Place
    Start-up companies interested in using business analytics have a series of choices regarding different hardware, software, and services available in the cloud. The decision process for established companies, though, is more significant. Considering whether to use existing practices or start anew creates multiple decision points in any process. This SNIA webcast will feature views from both start-up and established companies on how to make the analytics decision. Attendees should expect to learn:
    • Real-world examples of the analytics decision process
    • How to use cloud resources in unique ways to accomplish business and engineering goals
    • Starting from the perspective of business requirements and developing technical metrics
    • Thoughts on when to start new vs. adapt existing analytics processes
  • NVMe-oF: Looking Beyond Performance Hero Numbers Recorded: Mar 25 2021 61 mins
    Erik Smith, Dell Technologies; Rob Davis, NVIDIA; Nishant Lodha, Marvell; Alex McDonald, SNIA NSF Vice Chair
    Over the past several years, many in the NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) ecosystem have used test results demonstrating NVMe-oF’s dramatic reduction in latency as a way to extrapolate the benefit it can provide to application consumers. To date, the focus has been on specialized fabrics like RDMA and Fibre Channel (FC).

    Unfortunately, the more important questions have been left as an exercise for the buyer: “How does the transport really impact application performance?” and “How does the transport holistically fit into my environment?”


    RDMA based fabrics (e.g., RoCE) provide the lowest possible latency, and FC provides the most reliability, but with the introduction of NVMe/TCP this conversation must also include scale, cost and operations. This webcast will attempt to answer these questions beyond “it depends.”

    Gain insights from an industry wide panel of NVMe and fabric technology experts as they discuss the thought process you can use to determine pros and cons of a fabric for your environment, including:
    • Use cases driving fabric choices
    • NVMe transports and their strengths
    • Industry dynamics driving adoption
    • Considerations for scale, security, and efficiency
  • Container Security: An Ounce of Prevention... Recorded: Mar 25 2021 38 mins
    Mike Hogan, CEO at Carbonetes Inc.
    Software development is rapidly adopting containers, Kubernetes and microservices in order to accelerate product evolution. At the same time Covid-19, work-from-home and offshoring are resulting in much more distributed development environments. These combine to make security and compliance a nightmare. This talk will be about the various security threats and how to address them in your development pipelines before they get into your production environment and create havoc.

    This talk will address:
    * Vulnerabilities
    * Software Composition Analysis (SCA)
    * Secrets
    * Bill of Materials (BoM)
    * Open-Source License Types
    * Distributed Policy Analysis
    * CI/CD Integration
    * Continuous Scanning in Kubernetes Run-Time
  • 7 Sins of Cloud Security Recorded: Mar 25 2021 56 mins
    Ed Adams, CEO, Security Innovation
    The cloud offers near-instant scale and numerous security features that organizations can leverage; however, it’s not that way by default. Despite wide adoption of cloud services, many organizations remain unprepared and unknowingly expand their attack surface. Gartner predicts that by 2025, 99% of cloud security issues will be the customer’s fault.

    Attend this webcast to better understand the nuances of cloud platforms and how to avoid common mistakes that undermine cloud computing benefits including:

    Identity & Access Management – broadly-scoped permissions result in big compromises
    Logs? Who needs logs? – critical to investigating security issues
    “Drag and Drop” Migration – the cloud-native services that need to be considered
    The Power of Security Reviews – cloud environments increase in complexity quickly
    Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) – the quickest cloud win you can get
    Secrets Storage – encrypting data sounds obvious but there is a lot to think about
    Alert, Alert! – get a heads up to any out of the ordinary activity
  • Increase Success and Decrease Risk: Use QA to Surgically Replace Your Monolith Recorded: Mar 25 2021 48 mins
    Patrick Grant, CEO at MCANTA
    Join us for an informative presentation filled with best practices and interactive sessions. MCANTA will even give away four, $100 Visa gift cards provided by our partner, Eggplant, part of Keysight Technologies.

    We have all heard that customer experience (CX) can set your business apart, and it has been identified as a key battleground differentiator (Gartner, Zendesk, Deloitte, Forbes and everyone, really). As many as 84% of companies focusing on CX see an uplift in revenue (Global Customer Experience Benchmarking Report). Breaking apart working systems (no matter how expensive, complicated, or risky they are to maintain) is high stakes work for any organization.

    Incorporating Application Testing and QA before moving forward with major changes leads to better software, better CX and higher customer satisfaction.

    According to the World Quality Report (WQR) approximately 74% of responses said QA contributions are essential to business outcomes, and 77% said end user satisfaction was critical. This is great for businesses and consumers alike. With most businesses “getting it”, what does the survey tell us about how they are they doing at meeting their QA goals?

    This is where the difficulties begin… Only 29% of respondents felt they always achieve desired QA targets. In other words, over 70% of organizations felt that they didn’t meet their goals. That’s pretty bad. If organizations understand the importance of QA to the success of their business, why is there such a gap in execution? Luckily the WQR responses identify existing major challenges to successful QA programs.

    Over the course of this presentation we will share some best practices you can take, and items to consider as you leverage QA, Test Automation, and Robotic Process Automation to ensure your business processes keep running while you charge forward towards micro-services.

    Manohar Ganshani, EMEA Security Transformation Lead at IBM UK
    Every organization is going through a cloud transformation with majority of them landing with multiple cloud service providers. Regardless of whether 10% of their workloads are in cloud or 90%, most of them struggle to have a common cloud security baseline and operating model that align to their compliance and business objectives. This session provides a perspective with cloud and technology agnostic approach to addressing risk and the security complexities due to disparate security controls across various providers
  • Tell me something I don´t know about Hybrid Multi-Cloud Security Recorded: Mar 24 2021 57 mins
    Atef Abdelkefi, CISO/Lead Architect, the Danish Account at IBM
    The world has lately experienced dramatic changes that accelerated digital transformation in many aspects of organizations and individuals´ life: work from home, remote services, online shopping, etc. In order to achieve the required agility, scalability and adaptability, hybrid multi-cloud adoption has soared.
    A critical part of the hybrid multi-cloud journey is ensuring the enterprise stays secure across its data and workloads throughout its digital transformation. The current hybrid multicloud environment, with a growing list of security tools as well as native controls available from the cloud service providers, can lead to fragmented security solutions and an increase of the risk posture.

    In this talk, we will first investigate the challenges and opportunities of hybrid multi-cloud security, then, we will propose a methodology to mitigate the identified challenges. Particularly, we will propose a cloud security strategy that will support organizations in their journey to hybrid-multi cloud.

  • Cloud Infrastructure re-imagined and coming to the fight Recorded: Mar 23 2021 61 mins
    Dr. Mirza Kamaludeen, P. Eng., CISSP,
    Many organizations now find themselves in a multi-cloud environment, while they have no complains, they are however very uncertain and nervous about the future. Recent cyber event; cloud service providers censorship; and even chatter of malicious AI driven infrastructure only exacerbate the unease. While there are caused for concern, multi-cloud platforms address the issues from within its own fabric. In addition, the neo-nationalist movement is on pause, and the hour when singularity arrives and AI takes over the world is in the horizon, as Hollywood takes a covid19 break.

    In this session, I will attempt to unravel the complexity of multi-cloud and explain how we use these days of calm to address those imminent concerns. By discussing.

    -Use of Multi-cloud to address cloud vendor lock-in or shutdown.
    -Use of Multi-Cloud to address cloud & on-premises security.
    -User of Multi- cloud to secure your data and your identity – NIST style.
    -Use of Multi-cloud to address the Cloud AI-Genie waiting the closets.

    I will discuss with use cases, demonstrating how both private and public sector are leveraging multi-cloud in the fight for agility, security, and relevance.
  • Multi-Cloud – Separating the Hype from Reality Recorded: Mar 23 2021 48 mins
    Steven Woodward, Founder of Cloud Perspectives
    The multi-cloud marketing machine is at full power.

    Many cloud customers are becoming overwhelmed. Separating the “hype” from “reality” can be challenging, especially when terms such as “multi-cloud” are being used with different definitions and perspectives.

    Multi-cloud perspectives, options and updates from some of the standards groups addressing multi-cloud will be highlighted.

    A sample set of scenarios will be described where multi-cloud expectations might not meet reality, where careful analysis must be performed to avoid unpleasant surprises.

    A taxonomy model will be discussed with an approach to evaluate and govern multi-cloud journeys, while aligning back to business outcomes.
  • How I learned to stop worrying and love the cloud Recorded: Mar 23 2021 25 mins
    Jacques du Preez, Chief Executive Officer at Intellinexus
    Mike Tyson famously said: "Everyone has a strategy until they get punched in the face." And 2020 was precisely that: a punch-to-the-face that has created great urgency among businesses to adapt their strategies and become more resilient to further change. In light of remote work becoming the new normal, the call of the cloud has never been clearer. But, argues Jacques du Preez, CEO at iNTELLiNEXUS, the cloud is not a strategy. He challenges organisations to take a step back, consider the broader business strategy, get clarity on what competencies they need, and then work with expert partners to develop a business transformation roadmap with clear measurable goals to achieve improved business outcomes.

    Key Points:
    -Understanding organisational objectives & the strategies to achieve them.
    -Developing a competency wish list and action plan.
    -Mapping out which technologies will provide the desired competencies.
    -How to measure success (KPIs)
  • Reducing complexity in a multicloud environment Recorded: Mar 23 2021 38 mins
    James Halberstadt, Director, Consultancy Practice, Market Development at Colt Technology Services
    Multicloud is now a necessity for the Enterprise, so we need to learn how to grow these environments in order to govern and manage them as a single ecosystem and not as individual silos.

    This work begins with network access and visibility of application flows, which become increasingly complex as a single application often has elements of its architecture hosted on different clouds or in different locations including at the customer edge.

    Coupled with a workforce that is increasingly accessing these applications from 'anywhere', it is critical that we can secure the access to these application environments and ensure the Enterprise gains the business benefits promised by cloud transformation.
Best practices for achieving Enterprise IT and operational efficiency.
The Enterprise Architecture channel presents the next generation of Enterprise IT: recognizing the strategic importance of digital transformation and the data center to make companies more nimble and competitive. These presentations will help demanding IT and BizOps professionals achieve flexibility, scalability and performance with reduced risk and complexity.
