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

New Landscape of Network Speeds

In the short period from 2014-2018, Ethernet equipment vendors have announced big increases in line speeds, shipping 25, 50, and 100 Gigabits-per -second (Gb/s) speeds and announcing 200/400 Gb/s. At the same time Fibre Channel vendors have launched 32GFC, 64GFC and 128GFC technology while InfiniBand has reached 200Gb/s (called HDR) speeds.

But who exactly is asking for these faster new networking speeds, and how will they use them? Are there servers, storage, and applications that can make good use of them? How are these new speeds achieved? Are new types of signaling, cables and transceivers required? How will changes in PCIe standards keep up? And do the faster speeds come with different distance limitations?

Watch this SNIA Networking Storage Forum (NSF) webcast to learn how these new speeds are achieved, where they are likely to be deployed for storage, and what infrastructure changes are needed to support them.

  • Fibre Channel Zoning Basics Jun 27 2019 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Ed Mazurek, Cisco; J Metz, Cisco
    In this back-to-basics Fibre Channel webinar, we’re going to be talking about one of the most fundamental functions of the protocol and what makes it so reliable, predictable and secure: Zoning. The ability to ensure that end devices are able to communicate only with the set of devices explicitly permitted is part of what makes Fibre Channel so powerful. This ability to secure those connections in zones adds built-in security to these connections.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:
    What is Zoning
    Why you’d want to Zone
    The Different Types of Zoning
    Zoning Configuration Flow
    Consequences of Zoning
    Zoneset Activation Flow
    Zoning best practices for different types of applications
    Advances in Zoning
  • [Panel]: The Journey to Cloud-Native Container Adoption Jun 26 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Panel of experts
    2018 saw Cloud-Native go truly mainstream. From IBM’s $34 billion purchase of Red Hat to the steep uptake in the adoption of Kubernetes, Cloud-Native Containerization is now a major industry trend.

    However, as with all modern technology adoptions, the benefits come with challenges to be navigated. Join this BrightTALK panel as leading experts debate:

    - What are the risks to adopting Cloud-Native Containers in the Enterprise?
    - Is Serverless really the answer?
    - How do we safely and securely migrate existing applications to the cloud?
  • Introduction to Incast, Head of Line Blocking, and Congestion Management Jun 18 2019 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Sathish Gnanasekaran, Broadcom; John Kim, Mellanox; J Metz, Cisco; Tim Lustig, Mellanox
    For a long time, the architecture and best practices of storage networks have been relatively well-understood. Recently, however, advanced capabilities have been added to storage that could have broader impacts on networks than we think.

    The three main storage network transports - Fibre Channel, Ethernet, and InfiniBand – all have mechanisms to handle increased traffic, but they are not all affected or implemented the same way. For instance, placing a protocol such as NVMe over Fabrics can mean very different things when looking at one networking method in comparison to another.

    Unfortunately, many network administrators may not understand how different storage solutions place burdens upon their networks. As more storage traffic traverses the network, customers face the risk of congestion leading to higher-than-expected latencies and lower-than expected throughput. Watch this webinar to learn:

    •Typical storage traffic patterns
    •What is Incast, what is head of line blocking, what is congestion, what is a slow drain, and when do these become problems on a network?
    •How Ethernet, Fibre Channel, InfiniBand handle these effects
    •The proper role of buffers in handling storage network traffic
    •Potential new ways to handle increasing storage traffic loads on the network

  • How We Approached Evaluation of ALM Octane and Now Run Agile Testing Recorded: May 16 2019 60 mins
    Gerd Fladrich, Risang Sidik
    This webinar is brought to you by the Vivit Testing Quality ALM Special Interest Group (SIG).

    Join this webinar that will demonstrate how BNP Paribas started and performed evaluation of ALM Octane and is now using the tool to run complete agile testing lifecycles. The testing lifecycle will be presented as a live demo that follows Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) methodology and uses Gherkin notation for defining test suites.

    The testing lifecycle starts with definition of requirements and user stories, heavily builds on test automation and advanced reporting, manages and synchronizes defects across tools, and feeds learnings from testing back into the requirements. It uses an integrated development and testing infrastructure including products like Confluence, Jira, Micro Focus ALM, Micro Focus ALM Octane, Jenkins, GIT, Cucumber, IntelliJ, TestCafe, and others.

    BNP Paribas’s journey with agile test automation using ALM Octane started in 2017. The webinar presents in a nutshell how evaluation of ALM Octane was approached and conducted. It explains how new methods were introduced with the objective to leverage full tool functionality. The initiative has soon helped to increase testing efficiency and created important business value.

    Webinar participants will learn:

    • How BNP Paribas has conducted evaluation of ALM Octane
    • Why ALM Octane is much more than just a successor of ALM/Quality Center
    • How ALM Octane eases flexible management of its entire surrounding tool chain
    • Why methodology like BDD shall precede tools, and not vice versa
    • How Gherkin establishes a common language for the entire agile development lifecycle that helps integrating business, development, and testing
    • How to use ALM Octane for pipeline management, reporting, defect synchronization, import of performance testing and BPT results, integration of in-sprint testing etc.

  • Cloud Truth & WAN Consequences: Remake Your WAN for Zoom, AWS, and Office365 Recorded: Feb 28 2019 49 mins
    John Burke, CIO and Principal Research Analyst, Nemertes Research
    You need to rethink your WAN to survive the next 5 years. We can help show you how.

    Think about it: half of your IT services come from the cloud, from folks such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure and Office365, and Oracle Cloud. Mixing cloud and internal sources, you serve an increasingly scattered and mobile staff. IoT is turning the physical environment into both a provider and a consumer of IT services.

    Is the WAN you built for Client/Server really going to serve?

    No. IT needs to rethink its WAN and re-engineer the economics of wide-area networking.

    Join Nemertes as we bring our WAN technology research study and freshly updated, one-of-a-kind cost and performance benchmarks to bear on the challenges of remaking your WAN to drive success in the cloud age. We'll discuss:
    • SD-WAN and the real benefits it can deliver for performance and cost
    • Other cloud-friendly network technologies such as direct-connect and WAN-Cloud Exchanges
    • Up-to-date cost and provider performance data for MPLS and Internet services.

  • Networking Requirements for Hyperconvergence Recorded: Feb 5 2019 61 mins
    Christine McMonigal, Intel; J Metz, Cisco; Alex McDonald, NetApp
    “Why can’t I add a 33rd node?”

    One of the great advantages of Hyperconvergence infrastructures (also known as “HCI”) is that, relatively speaking, they are extremely easy to set up and manage. In many ways, they’re the “Happy Meals” of infrastructure, because you have compute and storage in the same box. All you need to do is add networking.

    In practice, though, many consumers of HCI have found that the “add networking” part isn’t quite as much of a no-brainer as they thought it would be. Because HCI hides a great deal of the “back end” communication, it’s possible to severely underestimate the requirements necessary to run a seamless environment. At some point, “just add more nodes” becomes a more difficult proposition.

    In this webinar, we’re going to take a look behind the scenes, peek behind the GUI, so to speak. We’ll be talking about what goes on back there, and shine the light behind the bezels to see:

    •The impact of metadata on the network
    •What happens as we add additional nodes
    •How to right-size the network for growth
    •Tricks of the trade from the networking perspective to make your HCI work better
    •And more…

    Now, not all HCI environments are created equal, so we’ll say in advance that your mileage will necessarily vary. However, understanding some basic concepts of how storage networking impacts HCI performance may be particularly useful when planning your HCI environment, or contemplating whether or not it is appropriate for your situation in the first place.
