  • Will You Still Love Me When I Turn 64GFC? Dec 11 2018 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Dean Wallace, Marvell; Barry Maskas, HPE
    Fibre Channel’s speed roadmap defines a well-understood technological trend: the need to double the bit rate in the channel without doubling the required bandwidth.

    In order to do this, PAM4 (pulse-amplitude modulation, with four levels of pulse modulation), enters the Fibre Channel physical layer picture. With the use of four signal levels instead of two, and with each signal level corresponding to a two-bit symbol, the standards define 64GFC operation while maintaining backward compatibility with 32GFC and 16GFC.

    This advanced technical session will cover the T11 standards which define 64GFC serial Fibre Channel, backwards speed auto-negotiation compatibility, and compatible form factors:

    •New physical layer and specification challenges for PAM4, which includes eye openings, crosstalk sensitivity, and new test methodologies and parameters
    •Transceivers, their form factors, and how 64GFC maintains backward compatibility with multi-mode fibre cable deployments in the data center, including distance specifications
    •Discussion of protocol changes, and an overview of backward-compatible link speed and forward error correction (FEC) negotiation
    •The FCIA’s Fibre Channel speed roadmap and evolution, and new technologies under consideration
  • Create a Smarter and More Economic Cloud Storage Architecture Nov 7 2018 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Michelle Tidwell, IBM; Eric Lakin, University of Michigan; Mike Jochimsen, Kaminario; Alex McDonald, NetApp
    Building a cloud storage architecture requires both storage vendors, cloud service providers and large enterprises to consider new technical and economic paradigms in order to enable a flexible and cost efficient architecture.

    Economic:
    Cloud infrastructure is often procured by service providers and large enterprises in the traditional way – prepay for expected future storage needs and over provision for unexpected changes in demand. This requires large capital expenditures with slow cost recovery based on fluctuating customer adoption. Giving these cloud service providers flexibility in the procurement model for their storage allows them to more closely align the expenditure on infrastructure resources with the cost recovery from customers, optimizing the use of both CapEx and OpEx budgets.

    Technical:
    Clouds inherently require often unpredictable scalability – both up and down. Building a storage architecture with the ability to rapidly allocate resources for a specific customer need and reallocate resources based on changing customer requirements allows the cloud service provider to optimize storage capacity and performance pools in their data center without compromising the responsiveness to the change in needs. Such architecture should also align to the datacenter level orchestration system to allow for even higher level of resource optimization and flexibility.

    In this webcast, you will learn:
    •How modern storage technology allows you to build this infrastructure
    •The role of software defined storage
    •Accounting principles
    •How to model cloud costs of new applications and or re-engineering existing applications
    •Performance considerations

  • Extending RDMA for Persistent Memory over Fabrics Oct 25 2018 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Tony Hurson, Intel; Rob Davis, Mellanox; John Kim, Mellanox
    For datacenter applications requiring low-latency access to persistent storage, byte-addressable persistent memory (PM) technologies like 3D XPoint and MRAM are attractive solutions. Network-based access to PM, labeled here PM over Fabrics (PMoF), is driven by data scalability and/or availability requirements. Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) network protocols are a good match for PMoF, allowing direct RDMA Write of data to remote PM. However, the completion of an RDMA Write at the sending node offers no guarantee that data has reached persistence at the target. This webcast will outline extensions to RDMA protocols that confirm such persistence and additionally can order successive writes to different memories within the target system.

    The primary target audience is developers of low-latency and/or high-availability datacenter storage applications. The presentation will also be of broader interest to datacenter developers, administrators and users.
  • Protocol Analysis for High-Speed Fibre Channel Fabrics Oct 10 2018 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    David Rodgers, Teledyne LeCroy; Yamini Shastry, Viavi Solutions; Joe Kimpler, ATTO
    Protocol Analysis for High-Speed Fibre Channel Fabrics in the Data Center: Aka, Saving Your SAN (& Sanity)

    The driving force behind adopting new tools and processes in test and measurement practices is the desire to understand, predict, and mitigate the impact of Sick but not Dead (SBND) conditions in datacenter fabrics. The growth and centralization of mission critical datacenter SAN environments has exposed the fact that many small yet seemingly insignificant problems have the potential of becoming large scale and impactful events, unless properly contained or controlled.

    Root cause analysis requirements now encompass all layers of the fabric architecture, and new storage protocols that usurp the traditional network stack (i.e. FCoE, iWARP, NVMe over Fabrics, etc.) for purposes of expedited data delivery place additional analytical demands on the datacenter manager.
    To be sure, all tools have limitations in their effectiveness and areas of coverage, so a well-constructed “collage” of best practices and effective and efficient analysis tools must be developed. To that end, recognizing and reducing the effect of those limitations is essential.

    This webinar will introduce participants to Protocol Analysis tools and how they may be incorporated into the “best practices” application of SAN problem solving. We will review:
    •The protocol of the Phy
    •Use of “in-line” capture tools
    •Benefits of purposeful error injection for developing and supporting today’s high-speed Fibre Channel storage fabrics

    Join us on October 10, 2018. FCIA experts will be on hand to answer your questions.

  • RoCE vs. iWARP Recorded: Aug 22 2018 64 mins
    Tim Lustig, Mellanox; Fred Zhang, Intel; John Kim, Mellanox
    Network-intensive applications, like networked storage or clustered computing, require a network infrastructure with high bandwidth and low latency. Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) supports zero-copy data transfers by enabling movement of data directly to or from application memory. This results in high bandwidth, low latency networking with little involvement from the CPU.

    In the next SNIA ESF “Great Storage Debates” series webcasts, we’ll be examining two commonly known RDMA protocols that run over Ethernet; RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) and IETF-standard iWARP. Both are Ethernet-based RDMA technologies that reduce the amount of CPU overhead in transferring data among servers and storage systems.

    The goal of this presentation is to provide a solid foundation on both RDMA technologies in a vendor-neutral setting that discusses the capabilities and use cases for each so that attendees can become more informed and make educated decisions.

    Join to hear the following questions addressed:

    •Both RoCE and iWARP support RDMA over Ethernet, but what are the differences?
    •Use cases for RoCE and iWARP and what differentiates them?
    •UDP/IP and TCP/IP: which uses which and what are the advantages and disadvantages?
    •What are the software and hardware requirements for each?
    •What are the performance/latency differences of each?

    Join our SNIA experts as they answer all these questions and more on this next Great Storage Debate
