  • Journey to Resiliency: How AI & ML Improve Predictive Maintenance & Optimization Oct 22 2020 9:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Andrew Graham, Critical Environments Group | Lars Strong, Upsite Technologies
    For several years, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have been trendy buzzwords in the data center industry, offering the promise of an automated data center that is more resilient with a lower operating cost. The reality is, most data center operators are still living in a reactive world; chasing down problems, issues, and putting out fires. We’re all hoping that predictive maintenance driven by AI/ML will change that, but this has become a longer journey than stakeholders first realized. The first step in this journey is to identify where your organization sits on the path of reactive, preventative, proactive, or predictive maintenance. The next step is to develop a plan for migrating towards predictive maintenance driven by AI/ML that will optimize your data center while improving resiliency.

    This session covers the key hurdles you’ll experience on this journey. We will present examples on how to achieve higher levels of optimization and resiliency by utilizing real-time monitoring that infuses predictive tools driven by AI/ML. We will also provide the game plan and C-level decision criteria you’ll need to obtain approvals and lead your organization though this journey.
  • Data Centers’ Combat to COVID-19’s Interference: What are the new plays? Oct 22 2020 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Kristy Nelson, MBA, Paralegal & Owner of EGS Management Consult, Inc.
    There is clear evidence that the presence of COVID-19 has disrupted the technology industry. Pre-COVID, technology was relied upon now it is the core focus of our personal and business livelihoods. If you were not tech savvy, this disruption forced you to adapt and use it.
    The business sector faced challenges in adjusting how to maneuver their operations in the management of data storage. Data Centers were not immune in facing the task relating to the increase in demand, retrieval of data collected and stored. With the emergence of cloud storage, data centers can seize the opportunity to convert to hyperscale operations. This gives them the capability to scale exponentially and align with the pace of their new virtual, business form of operations. What is the benefit? Modularity wherein they can strategically plan their data centers according to the needs of their organization. This enables the modernization to redefine and amend data centers; according to market trends to keep their infrastructure current to remain competitive. Risk management plays a vital role with the emergence of updating and scaling data centers. The increase in usage creates traffic that requires a constant monitoring approach to oversee new implementation of strategies. This presentation will discuss the following:
    1. What are the current trends facing data centers during pre and during COVID-19?
    2. As a result of this disruption, what is the future out-look of data center operations?
    3. What are the environmental trends of data centers and their outlook?
    4. Risk management of the new processes of data centers for optimization.

  • A brief history of Computers - Your Data Center in 2025 Oct 22 2020 8:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Georg Gesek, CEO, Novarion Systems Corp.
    Innovation in computer hardware is driven by the application of knowledge in physics. The progress to understand matter leads to new technologies for our data centers.

    But this is a non-linear process. Breakthroughs were ignited e.g. with the development of integrated circuits, leveraging the understanding of the behavior of semiconductors on a microscopic level.

    Now we have got aware of quantum physics as a game of information. This means radical break-throughs for our computer systems both, for hardware and software, since information is physical!

    Commonly understood is the fact of a classical bit, manifested as electrical potential between atoms and electrons instead of electrical currents, which provided us with non-volatile memory modules.

    Lately, our attention focused on the change of information within microscopic circuits themselves, which provides us with qubits, so called quantum bits.

    Since qubits represent pure information, we can implement them in our way to calculate from the beginning, not only in native quantum computers, but also with a novel technology,

    the hybrid quantum computer. This talk will get you acquainted with this new kind of computer architecture and demonstrate first implementations.

    In 2025, so the prediction of George Gesek, every high performance data center will run on nothing but hybrid quantum computers!

  • Collaborative Computing Agents in Construction of Self-Organized IoT Oct 21 2020 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Yeghisabet Alaverdyan, Head of Systems Integration Department, Yerevan
    The Internet of Things that use sensors to capture data with embedded information exchange capability promotes newer technological value creation. Conventional IoT may comprise computing devices, finite state machines, objects, or biological beings. In the age of big data, IoT opens up a new world of data sources and motivates Intelligent Data Analytics.

    The heterogeneity of things mostly resembles the human body where the set of interconnected separate organs with individual functioning and communication capabilities serves a vital purpose. With this regard, adoption of relevant technologies along with Adaptive Software development methodologies may create strong premises for organic systems construction. Here, in order to resolve issues in intelligence, security and governance of intelligent IoT, the whole network of Things may be enhanced to the Internet of self-organized and collaborative computing agents.

    For the purpose, the following concepts in Computing science should emerge:

    • Multi-agent cognitive systems
    • Information integration to serve a targeted purpose
    • Predicate logic to govern deductive agents
    • Semantic graph to model the enhanced IoT
  • Automating networks through the machine learning driven insight Oct 21 2020 8:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Martin Blunn, Chief Technology Officer, Solutionize Global
    Many elements of infrastructure have the capability to adapt with principles such as scale on demand. Networks have generally stayed static due to their complexity and fixed nature of the underlay provider and the ability to perform consistent rapid change.

    In recent times Artificial Intelligence has been integrated in almost all elements of information and communication technologies with the use of machine learning and deep learning becoming quite commonly applied in various day to day applications.

    The majority of network components produce large amount of raw data much of which currently is ignored or discarded in favour on focusing on availability and key performance metrics.

    Machine learning algorithms have been developed for communication networks to be applied to fundamental problems in networking, including traffic prediction, routing and classification, congestion control, resource, fault management, QoS and QoE management and network security.
    Software defined networks (SDN) provide the ability to program network configuration through the use of open standards and DevOps tools such as Terraform and Ansible. Central orchestration engines provides the ability to deploy configuration to the edge through a controlled and consistent method.

    So, we have the building blocks for an adaptable network, driven by metrics provided on a real or near real time basis.

    Key Takeaways will be:

    • Generation of real time metrics to provide insight in the performance of a network for end user
    experience
    • Consumption of metrics to be processed by the appropriate machine learning algorithm with
    validation of learning by network professionals
    • Dynamic configuration of networks through programmatic interface centrally orchestrated
    • An iterative programmatic approach to continually change with appropriate lag to continually adapt to the needs of the business applications and introduction of new services
  • Expanding Storage Through Disaggregation - And Now What? Oct 20 2020 11:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Michael Schuette, DataSecure LLC | Eric Garrison, Atto Bojian Wang, Fungible | Shahar Noy, Marvell
    Disaggregated data storage allows for more flexible and cost-effective resource allocation. Using conventional storage servers is not taking advantage of the latest technology and adds unnecessary hardware, performance bottlenecks, power consumption and cost compared to a modern switch fabric. We’ll be discussing various types of innovative novel approaches including different strategies for NVMeoE, Direct Attached Storage over Fibre Channel (DASoFC) and their advantage in different environments. Finally, managing the deluge of data within a switch fabric is becoming an overwhelming challenge that needs to be addressed by dedicated Data Processing Units (DPUs) to streamline communication and data access between storage and processing units.
    Key points:
    • Server bottlenecks
    • Disaggregating storage via NVMeoE and DASoFC
    • Managing the deluge of data through DPUs

  • Optimizing NVMe-oF Performance with Different Ethernet Transports: Host Factors Recorded: Sep 16 2020 62 mins
    Fred Zhang, Intel; Eden Kim, Calypso Systems; David Woolf, UNH-IOL; Tom Friend, Illuminosi
    NVMe over Fabrics technology is gaining momentum and getting more tractions in data centers, but there are three kinds of Ethernet based NVMe over Fabrics transports: iWARP, RoCEv2 and TCP. How do we optimize NVMe over Fabrics performance with different Ethernet transports?

    Setting aside the consideration of network infrastructure, scalability, security requirement and complete solution stack, this webcast will explore the performance of different Ethernet-based transport for NVMe over Fabrics at micro benchmark level. We will show three key performance indicators: IOPs, Throughput, and Latency with different workloads including: Sequential Read/Write, Random Read/Write, 70%Read/30%Write, with different data size. We will compare the result of three Ethernet based transports: iWARP, RoCEv2 and TCP.

    Further, we will dig a little bit deeper to talk about the variables that will impact the performance of different Ethernet transports. There are a lot of variables that you can tune but these variables will impact the performance of each transport to different extents. We will cover the variables:
    1.How many CPU cores are needed (I’m willing to give)?
    2.Optane SSD or 3D NAND SSD?
    3.How deep should the Q-Depth be?
    4.Why do I need to care about MTU?

    This discussion won’t tell you which transport is the best. Instead we unfold the performance of each transport and tell you what it would take for each transport to get the best performance, so that you can make the best choice for your transport for NVMe over Fabrics solutions.
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.
