  • Unprotected Files on a Public Cloud Server: Live Panel on the NSA Data Leak Recorded: Dec 8 2017 59 mins
    Chris Vickery, George Crump, David Linthicum, Charles Goldberg, Mark Carlson
    Public, private and hybrid cloud are nothing new, but protecting sensitive data stored on these servers is still of the utmost concern. The NSA is no exception.

    It recently became publicized that the contents of a highly sensitive hard drive belonging to the NSA (National Security Agency) were compromised. The virtual disk containing the sensitive data came from an Army Intelligence project and was left on a public AWS (Amazon Web Services) storage server, not password-protected.

    This is one of at least 5 other leaks of NSA-related data in recent years. Not to mention the significant number of breaches and hacks we’ve experienced lately, including Yahoo!, Equifax, WannaCry, Petya, and more.

    The culprit in this case? Unprotected storage buckets. They have played a part in multiple other recent exposures, and concern is on the rise. When it comes to storing data on public cloud servers like AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Rackspace and more, what are the key responsibilities of Storage Architects and Engineers, CIOs and CTOs to avoid these types data leaks?

    Tune in with Chris Vickery, Director of Cyber Risk Research at UpGuard and the one who discovered the leak, along with George Crump, Chief Steward, Storage Switzerland, David Linthicum, Cloud Computing Visionary, Author & Speaker, Charles Goldberg, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, Thales e-Security, and Mark Carlson, Co-Chair, SNIA Technical Council & Cloud Storage Initiative, for a live panel discussion on this ever-important topics.

  • FCIP (Extension): Data Protection and Business Continuity Recorded: Dec 7 2017 59 mins
    Rupin Mohan, Director R&D, SAN Chief Technologist, HPE, Mark Detrick, Director, Extension Principal Architect, Brocade
    Businesses today rely heavily on their data. Disaster may strike anywhere and occurs in many shapes and sizes. Transporting data over significant distance beyond the reach of a threatening event preserves data so organizations can rapidly recover in the event of a site going down.

    This makes deploying a disaster recovery infrastructure between data centers with fast, continuous, and easy replication of mission-critical data to anywhere in the world essential.
    Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP), often referred to as “Extension,” is used to connect SANs across distance using IP networks. FCIP is commonly used for Remote Data Replication (RDR) between Enterprise Storage Arrays and Remote Tape applications, for the purpose of Business Continuance via Disaster Recovery (BC/DR).

    Join storage technology and industry experts as they discuss their experience and deployment knowledge in:

    •Best known methods for deployment with extension architectures, extension in routed topologies, and performance optimization for remote replication
    •Industry best practices: topologies to achieve high-availability goals, advantages in trunking, encryption, etc…
    •Customer examples and use cases of a variety of critical production environments ranging from SMBs to the largest most demanding enterprises and government institutions
  • Automation – are the robots really coming? Recorded: Dec 7 2017 42 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, Technology Evangelist, Ensono
    Many analysts are returning to automation as a re-emerging focus for organisations in 2018 as they struggle to be able to deliver solutions to their customers faster and more efficiently. Automation has been declared as the game changing solution for many years so will it be any different this time?

    In this webinar, Simon Ratcliffe explores why automation is yet to become a ubiquitous across technology and what factors still stand in the way of the automation of everything. The core technology is stable and proven but the implementations are rarely entirely successful with many automation projects resulting in more staff after they are complete and many being reversed out as costs outweigh benefits.
  • Monitor with Discipline – 2018 IT Predictions Recorded: Dec 6 2017 33 mins
    Kong Yang, Head Geek of Virtualization & Cloud Practice, SolarWinds
    Change is coming fast and furious. And in the eye of the storm are applications. I’ve seen entire IT departments go into scramble drills to see if they possessed the necessary personnel and talent to bridge the gap as their organizations embraced digital transformation. And by digital transformation, I mean the ubiquitous app or service that can be consumed from anywhere on any device at any given time. For organizations, it’s all about making money all the time from every possible engagement. Remove the barrier to consume and make the organization more money is what digital transformation is all about. So what will happen in 2018?

    In this session, I will discuss my top three IT predictions for 2018 and discuss how IT professionals can remain valuable in their IT careers in the face of continuous integration and continuous delivery.

    · What are my top three 2018 predictions?
    · What skills do I need to remain relevant?

    Robert Gutierrez, Eran Bachar
    Today’s world of testing is a marathon! Testing teams are required to test more environments and mobile devices, without damaging the quality of their applications. They are required to test much earlier in the cycle, and to provide constant visibility, enabling development teams to have a short feedback loop in order to run faster and meet the business demand. This creates a big challenge for testing teams to keep up with the rapid pace of change without compromising on quality.

    In this webinar, Eran will introduce you to StormRunner Functional, the very first and only hybrid test execution service to support the Micro Focus testing tools with Unified Functional Testing (UFT) and UFT Pro (LeanFT), as well as the popular and open source Selenium.

  • Transactional Models & Their Storage Requirements Recorded: Oct 31 2017 63 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?

    One of the more important concepts in storage is the notion of transactions, which are used in databases, financials, and other mission critical workloads. However, in the age of cloud and distributed systems, we need to update our thinking about what constitutes a transaction. We need to understand how new theories and techniques allow us to undertake transactional work in the face of unreliable and physically dispersed systems. It’s a topic full of interesting concepts (and lots of acronyms!). In this webcast, we’ll provide a brief tour of traditional transactional systems and their use of storage, we’ll explain new application techniques and transaction models, and we’ll discuss what storage systems need to look like to support these new advances.

    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 Recorded: Oct 17 2017 61 mins
    Jeff Kato, Senior Analyst & Consultant, Taneja Group
    Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss the latest—and potentially most game-changing—technology disruptors to traditional storage architectures since flash: NVMe over fabric 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. Will a new shared storage access protocol called NVM express over Fabric (NVMe-oF) combined with the advent of storage class memory (SCM) be equally disruptive to traditional storage over the next five years as NAND flash technology was in the past?

    Vendors are now announcing new products and future architectures to enable them to support these new technologies. With the help of a lively panel of experts from HPE, Pivot3, and Mellanox, we will unpack this topic and explore how their innovative approaches to leveraging Storage Class Memory and NVMe-oF can radically improve storage products and solutions.
  • SNIA's New 100-Year Archive Survey: Ten Years Later Recorded: Oct 17 2017 60 mins
    Thomas Rivera, SNIA-DPCO Co-Chair; Sam Fineberg, SNIA LTR TWG Co-chair; Bob Rogers, CTO, Application Matrix
    Ten years ago, the SNIA 100-Year Archive Task Force developed a survey with the goal to determine the requirements for long-term digital information retention in the data center - requirements needed to frame the definition of best practices and solutions to the retention and preservation problems unique to large,scalable data centers.

    Now in 2017, SNIA presents a new survey developed to assess the following details:

    1. Who needs to retain long term information
    2. What information needs to be retained and for how long
    3. If organizations are able to meet their retention needs
    4. How long term information is stored, secured and preserved

    Join us as we see where we were and where we need to be in the preservation and retention of data.
  • Everything You Wanted to Know About Storage - Cyan: Storage Management Recorded: Sep 28 2017 57 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.
