  • FCoE vs. iSCSI vs. iSER Jun 21 2018 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    J Metz, Cisco; Saqib Jang, Chelsio; Rob Davis, Mellanox; Alex McDonald; NetApp
    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.

  • Everything You Wanted To Know...But Were Too Proud To Ask - Storage Controllers Recorded: May 15 2018 48 mins
    Peter Onufryk, Microsemi, Craig Carlson, Cavium, Chad Hintz, Cisco, John Kim, Mellanox, J Metz, Cisco
    Are you a control freak? Have you ever wondered what was the difference between a storage controller, a RAID controller, a PCIe Controller, or a metadata controller? What about an NVMe controller? Aren’t they all the same thing?

    In part Aqua of the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask” webcast series, we’re going to be taking an unusual step of focusing on a term that is used constantly, but often has different meanings. When you have a controller that manages hardware, there are very different requirements than a controller that manages an entire system-wide control plane. From the outside looking in, it may be easy to get confused. You can even have controllers managing other controllers!
    Here we’ll be revisiting some of the pieces we talked about in Part Chartreuse [https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/663/215131], but with a bit more focus on the variety we have to play with:
    •What do we mean when we say “controller?”
    •How are the systems being managed different?
    •How are controllers used in various storage entities: drives, SSDs, storage networks, software-defined
    •How do controller systems work, and what are the trade-offs?
    •How do storage controllers protect against Spectre and Meltdown?
    Join us to learn more about the workhorse behind your favorite storage systems.
