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

Starting and Measuring the Effectiveness of a Green DC Initiative

Given the regulatory, budgetary and complexity challenges that the modern organization faces, Information Technology leaders worldwide are viewing current or proposed initiatives to get “green” with both a high degree of interest and trepidation. The reason is that going green often appears as little more than an added burden on the IT organization. Given that customer demands are continually increasing and budgets are either flat or decreasing, how can IT respond in a meaningful way that doesn’t amplify the problem? The opportunity hidden within the Green initiative is about reducing waste, using assets more effectively and ensuring that the results are visible in both economic and environmental benefit. Unfortunately, many organizations artificially limit their thinking to a simple hardware refresh strategy. While there may be benefit to this, it’s often much less than anticipated or advertised. Organizations need to consider other options that go beyond the “usual suspects.” During this session we will directly address the key factors involved in how to start, measure the effectiveness and demonstrate the value created as a result of a Green Data Center initiative. In doing so, we will examine the critical factors necessary to help ensure that the initiative is both successful and self-funding. Please join us for a practical, provocative and engaging discussion on how to start and measure the effectiveness of a Green Data Center Initiative.

  • Transactional Models & Their Storage Requirements Oct 31 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Alex McDonald, SNIA-ESF Vice Chair, NetApp, J Metz, SNIA Board of Directors, Cisco
    We’re all accustomed to transferring money from one bank account to another; a credit to the payer becomes a debit to the payee. But that model uses a specific set of sophisticated techniques to accomplish what appears to be a simple transaction. We’re also aware of how today we can order goods online, or reserve an airline seat over the Internet. Or even simpler, we can update a photograph on Facebook. Can these applications use the same models, or are new techniques required?

    In this webcast, we’ll explore concepts like consistency, idempotency, 2 phase commit, and systems built on ACID databases stored on CRUD storage; and why in the age of distributed systems, we need to update our thinking to include eventual consistency, understand new theories such as the CAP Theorem and RESTfulness, and undertake transactional work in the face of unreliable and physically dispersed systems. We’ll then explain how all this can be accomplished with new application techniques built on modern storage systems.

    And yes, we’ll explain all the acronyms and nomenclature too.

    You will learn:

    •A brief history of transactional systems from banking to Facebook
    •How the Internet and distributed systems have changed and how we view transactions
    •An explanation of the terminology, from ACID to CAP and beyond
    •How applications, networks & particularly storage have changed to meet these demands
  • The Emerging Impact of NVMe-oF and Storage Class Memory Oct 17 2017 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jeff Kato, Senior Analyst & Consultant, Taneja Group
    Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss the newest technology disrupters to traditional storage architectures since flash: NVMe-oF and Storage Class Memory.

    It was just five years ago that Flash technology transformed the traditional storage market forever. Modern flash-first arrays are now the new normal for traditional storage. However, will a new shared storage access protocol called NVMe over Fabric combined with the advent of storage class memory be just as disruptive to tradition storage for the next five years.
  • Everything You Wanted to Know About Storage - Cyan: Storage Management Sep 28 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Richelle Ahlvers, Broadcom, Mark Rogov, Dell EMC, Alex McDonald, NetApp, J Metz, Cisco
    Storage can be something of a “black box,” a monolithic entity that is at once mysterious and scary. That’s why we created “The Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud to Ask” webcast series. So far, we’ve explored various and sundry aspects of storage, focusing on “the naming of the parts.” Our goal has been to break down some of the components of storage and explain how they fit into the greater whole.

    This time, however, we’re going to open up Pandora’s Box and peer inside the world of storage management, uncovering some of the key technologies that are used to manage devices, storage traffic, and storage architectures. In particular, we’ll be discussing:

    •Storage networking management protocols
    •SMI-S – The bread-and-butter of vendor-neutral storage management
    •SNIA Swordfish – The new storage management solution gaining widespread momentum
    •Software-Defined Storage – the catch-all term for storage that includes architectures and management

    There’s so much to say on each of these subjects we could do a full webcast on any one of them, but for a quick overview of many of the technologies that affect storage in one place, we think you will find your time has been well spent.

    Join us on September 28th, 2017, for our continuation of the “Too Proud To Ask” series with Cyan, the Storage Management Pod.
  • Introducing the Network Operations Management Suite from HPE/Micro Focus Recorded: Sep 19 2017 57 mins
    Joe Reves, Brian Kaplan, Jon Kies
    Network engineering and operations teams face a complex, moving target. But unfortunately, they’re typically armed with only a disparate collection of management tools - with little or no integration. Network teams deal with equipment outages, slowdowns, security breaches, inability to reach resources, access denials, and other issues that can be caused by anything from a bad connection to devious hackers.

    To address these challenges, we are now offering the 5th suite in the ITOM portfolio – Network Operations Management (NOM). Combining the functionality of Network Node Manager i (NNMi) and Network Automation (NA) and additional suite functionality such as reporting, NOM represents our path forward to managing web-scale networks with their evolving mix of physical, virtual, and software-defined networks.

  • Towards Software-Defined Organisations Recorded: Aug 15 2017 48 mins
    Dr Alexander Samarin, Enterprise & Solution Architect, Business & IT Transformation, BPM & SOA Coach
    The experience shows that the synergy between various business methodologies and information technologies does not happen spontaneously. It must be architected for guiding the use of methodologies, technologies and tools together.

    The presentation will discuss how several modern technologies (systems approach, enterprise architecture, digital, microservices, blockchain, explicit coordination and predictive decision-making) can be combined together to achieve an organisation which is defined by software. Thus such an organisation will systematically and agile adapt for new business challenges.

  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage: Programming & Networking Had a Baby Recorded: Jul 6 2017 59 mins
    Rob Peglar, Symbolic IO, J Metz, Cisco, Alex McDonald, NetApp, Dror Goldenberg, Mellanox
    In this, the sixth entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” popular webcast series we look into some of the nitties and the gritties of storage details that are often assumed.

    When looking at data from the lens of an application, host, or operating system, it’s easy to forget that there are several layers of abstraction underneath before the actual placement of data occurs. In this webcast we are going to scratch beyond the first layer to understand some of the basic taxonomies of these layers.

    In this webcast we will show you more about the following:

    •Storage APIs and POSIX
    •Block, File, and Object storage
    •Byte Addressable and Logical Block Addressing
    •Log Structures and Journaling Systems

    It’s an ambitious project, but these terms and concepts are at the heart of where compute, networking and storage intersect. Having a good grasp of these concepts ties in with which type of storage networking to use, and how data is actually stored behind the scenes.

    Join us on July 6th for this session. We look forward to seeing you there!

  • IoT-Enabled Smart Mobility: Hype or Reality? Recorded: Jun 14 2017 62 mins
    Srinivasan Ramaswamy, Co-Founder & CEO, Bambucluster
    Urban mobility has always been about moving people from location to location through motorized personal or public transport. However, the proliferation of sensors, smartphones and intelligent high bandwidth networks are compelling towns & cities around the world to re-think urban mobility and consider technology enablers to drive towards a vision of “smart” mobility. Furthermore, the fundamental assumptions underpinning mobility are being challenged.

    The Internet Of Things (IoT) has been touted as a promising technology enabler to deliver on a vision of smart mobility. We will examine the current state of IoT ecosystems, IoT enabled smart mobility efforts across the globe and help delineate the architectural considerations and cross-industry industry collaboration that would be essential to successfully deliver on smart mobility initiatives. A simple use case around a town/city smart mobility service will be used to illustrate our approach.

    With the boom in IoT, it is a transformational trend that will shape the future of business. Many firms see big opportunity in IoT uses and enterprises start to believe that IoT holds the promise to enhance customer relationships and drive business growth by improving quality, productivity, and reliability on one side, and on the other side reducing costs, risk, and theft. In this webinar, we discuss some of the top trends in IoT including those on security, mobility and connectivity.
  • How to Securely Configure a Linux Host to Run Docker Recorded: Jun 1 2017 28 mins
    Kevin Lewis, Solution Architect, Twistlock
    Learn how to securely configure host settings and Docker Engine.

    Docker allows teams to increase the speed and scale that they can deliver software. As a result, adoption rates for docker are accelerating as more organizations are looking for ways to innovate faster.

    As you move down the path to containers, it is important to note that an out-of-the box installation of just about any Linux distribution is capable of running the Docker daemon and Docker containers, but it will leave your host exposed to many security and performance concerns if not configured properly.

    Join us for this webinar to learn how to:
    - Configure host settings to harden and protect it from unauthorized access
    - Install and configure a Docker Engine with minimal attack surface
    - Ensure that the host has the necessary integration with existing enterprise systems like SIEM and enterprise directories
  • Capitalising Your Cloud; financing options for cloud projects Recorded: May 18 2017 33 mins
    Jez Back, Senior Manager Deloitte Consulting
    Every IT organisation is under pressure to deliver services as efficiently as possible, utilising infrastructure and services that may have a significant impact on the financial position and results of the organisation

    Historically, cloud technology has made reference to the potential benefits of transferring costs from the balance sheet (capex) to the income statement (opex). However, an unintended consequence has been that few, if any, cloud related costs could be capitalised. This may not be the desired outcome for all organisations and the capitalisation of certain types of cloud technology maybe preferred, or even required by accounting standards. This session explores this area and what key considerations can be given to the capitalisation of cloud.
  • Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage: Getting from Here to There Recorded: May 9 2017 58 mins
    Chad Hintz, Cisco, Fred Zhang, Intel, John Kim, Mellanox, Alex McDonald, NetApp
    As part of the successful “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask” series, we’ve discussed numerous topics about storage devices, protocols, and networks. As we examine some of these topics further, we begin to tease out some subtle nuances; subtle, yet important nevertheless.

    In Part Sepia, we’re going to take a look at some of the terms and concepts that affect Storage Architectures as a whole. In particular, we’ll be looking at those aspects that can help or hinder storage systems inside the network:

    •Encapsulation versus Tunneling
    •IOPS vs Latency vs Jitter
    •Quality of Service (QoS)

    Each of these topics has a profound impact on storage designs and performance, but they are often misunderstood. We’re going to help you become clear on all of these very important storage concepts so that you can grok storage just a little bit more.
