  • SDN — The New Networking Stack Recorded: Jun 15 2016 54 mins
    Dr. Jim Metzler, Co-Founder & Principal Analyst at Ashton, Metzler & Associates; Todd Krautkremer, SVP, Cradlepoint
    In less than a decade, virtualization and cloud technologies have transformed enterprise computing from top (applications) to bottom (storage).

    During this time, computing has evolved from a tiered and operationally isolated architecture of front-end, application, database and storage servers — each tier having its own teams, processes, tools, and manual functions — to a tightly integrated, fully automated “stack” that’s orchestrated with a common set of people and tools.

    Because of this unification and automation of the computing stack, enterprises can now instantly deploy workloads across private and public clouds with ease. While this evolution has been occurring on the computing side of IT, networks have remained largely unchanged. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies are about to change that.

    Join Cradlepoint and analyst Dr. Jim Metzler in a discussion about SDN and NFV and how they are creating the new networking stack.

  • Proactively Monitor User Experience in a User-Centric Digital World Recorded: Jun 15 2016 93 mins
    Dan Iuster
    Most application teams are content to only monitor their infrastructure. If the servers are up, everything must be fine. Recent surveys found that only 26% of application teams will proactively examine user experience in production. In fact, 72% completely lack curiosity and first learn about User Experience issues and poor application performance through user complaints at the help desk.

    However, the problem comes when application performance impacts your user’s engagement. They may not complain; but their efficiency is impacted and they may just take their business somewhere else which is reflected in business metrics.
    As such, lack of visibility into the enterprise application performance costs millions and directly impacts business revenues and efficiency.
    Join us for Part 2 of our Application Visibility with Application Performance Management (APM) Webinar Series to learn how HPE APM enables visibility into your User Experience and alerts you when applications are performing poorly and before users are impacted.
    During this webinar you will learn how HPE APM helps you:

    Monitor your user experience
    Identify performance issues before they occur by detecting negative performance trends
    Identify potential critical issues before a crash occurs using predictive analytics
    Isolate the problem to the failing application component whether that be a service, Docker container, virtual or physical server

  • A DNA-based Archival Storage System Recorded: Jun 13 2016 37 mins
    Luis Henrique Ceze, University of Washington
    Demand for data storage is growing exponentially, but the capacity of existing storage media is not keeping up. Using DNA to archive data is an attractive possibility because it is extremely dense, with a raw limit of 1 exabyte/mm3 (10^9 GB/mm3), and long-lasting, with observed half-life of over 500 years.

    This work presents an architecture for a DNA-based archival storage system. It is structured as a key-value store, and leverages common biochemical techniques to provide random access. We also propose a new encoding scheme that offers controllable redundancy, trading off reliability for density. We demonstrate feasibility, random access, and robustness of the proposed encoding with wet lab experiments. Finally, we highlight trends in biotechnology that indicate the impending practicality of DNA storage.
  • Storage Architectures for Next Generation Cognitive Analytics Recorded: Jun 13 2016 36 mins
    Balint Fleischer, Chief Research Officer, Huawei
    In the era of data explosion in Cloud-Mobile convergence and Internet of Things, traditional architectures and storage systems will not be sufficient to support the transition of enterprises to cognitive analytics. The ever increasing data rates and the demand to reduce time to insights will require an integrated approach to data ingest, processing and storage to reduce end-to-end latency, much higher throughput, much better resource utilization, simplified manageability, and considerably lower energy usage to handle highly diversified analytics. Yet next-generation storage systems must also be smart about data content and application context in order to further improve application performance and user experience. A new software-defined storage system architecture offers the ability to tackle such challenges. It features seamless end-to-end data service of scalable performance, intelligent manageability, high energy efficiency, and enhanced user experience.
