  • NVMe in the Data Center: Expanding Above and Beyond the Local Server Feb 14 2018 10:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Petros Koutoupis, Senior Platform Architect, IBM Cloud Object Storage
    NVMe adoption has taken the Data Center by storm. And while the technology has proven itself to outperform all other competing SSD implementation, it is still quite limited and restricted to the local server it is attached to. This is where NVMe Targets come into the picture. In this presentation, we will explore how NVMe devices can be exported across a network and attached to remote server nodes.
  • Multi-Cloud Storage: Addressing the Need for Portability and Interoperability Dec 12 2017 8:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    John Webster, Senior Partner, Evaluator Group, Mark Carlson, SNIA CSI Co-Chair, Alex McDonald, SNIA CSI Chair
    In a recent survey of enterprise hybrid cloud users, the Evaluator Group saw that nearly 60% of respondents indicated that lack of interoperability is a significant technology-related issue that they must overcome in order to move forward. In fact, lack of interoperability was chosen above public cloud security and network security as significant inhibitors. This webcast looks at enterprise hybrid cloud objectives and barriers with a focus on cloud interoperability within the storage domain and the SNIA’s Cloud Storage Initiative to promote interoperability and portability of data stored in the cloud.
  • FCIP (Extension): Data Protection and Business Continuity Dec 7 2017 6:00 pm UTC 75 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
  • Multi-cloud Primary Storage: Avoid lock-in while shifting apps to the cloud Recorded: Nov 15 2017 54 mins
    Senior Analysts Jeff Kato and Jeff Byrne
    As the result of extensive primary end-user and multi-vendor research, including responses from 700+ IT decision makers, Taneja Group has learned that an increasing number of organizations are more motivated than ever before to move their applications in the cloud. However, they prefer to easily move those applications between on-premises and multiple clouds without having to modify the underlying storage infrastructure.

    Join us as we unpack this emerging market category along with SoftNAS, one of the vendors at the forefront of this trend.

    In this webinar we’ll cover:

    • How multi-cloud primary storage can span multiple cloud environments and mitigate the risk of moving to the public cloud

    • Lifting and shifting applications to a single public cloud or multiple public clouds without re-engineering the applications

    • Why the SoftNAS Cloud Data Platform enables enterprise on-premises file services to be collocated in public clouds

    About your hosts:
    Taneja Group’s Senior Analysts Jeff Kato and Jeff Byrne will discuss the research behind the Taneja Group’s Multi-Cloud Primary Storage market category. They will be joined by Rick Braddy, Founder, CEO and CTO at SoftNAS, who will describe how the SoftNAS Cloud Data Platform provides the best pathway to shift applications among on-premises, AWS, and Azure clouds.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • Disruption of the file storage market: Extending file storage to the cloud Recorded: Oct 11 2017 43 mins
    Taneja Group Senior Analysts Jeff Kato & Jeff Byrne with Qumulo Senior Product Manager Justin Mahood
    In over 400 interviews with IT decision makers, the Taneja Group learned that an increasing number of organizations want not just to store files in the cloud, but to easily move those files between the cloud and on-premise.

    In response, the Taneja Group has identified an emerging set of storage products they call “multi-cloud primary storage” that can span multiple environments. One of the vendors at the forefront of this trend is Qumulo, whose “universal-scale storage” product, Qumulo File Fabric (QF2), allows cloud instances and computing nodes on standard hardware to work together to form a single, unified file fabric.

    Join Taneja Group Senior Analysts Jeff Kato and Jeff Byrne as they discusses the research behind the Taneja Group’s Multi-Cloud Primary Storage report. They will be joined by Qumulo employee Justin Mahood, who will describe why the “universal-scale” of QF2 is the best way to store files in the cloud and on-premise.

  • 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.

  • Cloud Object Storage and the Use of Gateways Recorded: Sep 26 2017 43 mins
    Dan Albright, Cloud Object Storage Program Manager, IBM, Alex McDonald, SNIA Cloud Storage Chair, NetApp
    The use of cloud object storage is ramping up sharply, especially in the public cloud, to reduce capital budgets and operating expenses. However, enterprises are challenged with legacy applications that do not support standard protocols to move data to and from the cloud.

    Enterprises have developed strategies specific to the public cloud for Data Protection, Archive, Application development, DevOps, Big Data Analytics and Cognitive Artificial Intelligence. However, these same organizations have legacy applications and infrastructure that are not cloud friendly.

    Object storage is a secure, simple, scalable, and cost-effective means of managing the explosive growth of unstructured data enterprises generate every day. Gateways enable SMB and NFS data transfers to be converted to Amazon’s S3 protocol while optimizing data with deduplication and providing QoS efficiency on the data path to the cloud.

    This webcast will highlight the market trends toward the adoption of object storage and the use of gateways to execute a cloud strategy, the benefits of object storage when gateways are deployed, and the use cases that are best suited to leverage this solution.

    Join this webcast to learn:
    •The benefits of object storage when gateways are deployed
    •Primary use cases for using object storage and gateways in private, public or hybrid cloud
    •How gateways can help achieve the goals of your cloud strategy without
    retooling your on-premise infrastructure and applications

  • Create Hybrid Cloud Stretched Clusters Using VMware, AWS, and SDS Recorded: Aug 15 2017 43 mins
    Chris Kranz, Solutions Architect, Hedvig
    Enterprises are evolving their vSphere environments from standard DR configurations to high availability (HA) architectures. VMware vSphere Metro Storage Cluster is a key capability in this evolution. Parallel to this, companies are embracing hybrid cloud and AWS in particular. In many cases enterprises treat AWS as a passive DR site. But what if you could evolve AWS to be part of an HA stretch cluster? That’s where software-defined storage (SDS) comes in.

    SDS solutions provide the flexibility to run on commodity servers as well as cloud computing instances. Couple that with advanced multi-site replication, per-VM storage policies, deduplication, snapshotting, cloning, and VMware’s recent announcement with AWS, and SDS is now the ideal enabler for automated failover in a hybrid cloud stretched cluster.

    In this session we’ll:
    - Provide an architecture for software-defined storage running a stretched cluster between a private vSphere cloud and AWS.
    - Discuss how this provides seamless failover, HA, DR, and cloud bursting—all at scale.
    - Highlight how data efficiency techniques like deduplication, thin provisioning, auto-tiering, and caching optimize hybrid cloud economics.

  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage-Turquoise: Where Does My Data Go Recorded: Aug 1 2017 61 mins
    Rob Peglar, Symbolic IO, Scott Shadley, Micron, J Metz, Cisco, Chad Hintz, Cisco
    In this, the seventh entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” popular webcast series we look into the mysticism and magic of what happens when you send your data off into the wilderness. Once you click “save,” for example, where does it actually go?

    When we start to dig deeper beyond the application layer, we often don’t understand what happens behind the scenes. It’s important to understand multiple aspects of the type of storage our data goes to along with their associated benefits and drawbacks as well as some of the protocols used to transport it.

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

    •Volatile v Non-Volatile v Persistent Memory
    •NVDIMM v RAM v DRAM v SLC v MLC v TLC v NAND v 3D NAND v Flash v SSDs v NVMe
    •NVMe (the protocol)

    Many people get nervous when they see that many acronyms, but all too often they come up in conversation, and you’re expected to know all of them? Worse, you’re expected to know the differences between them, and the consequences of using them? Even worse, you’re expected to know what happens when you use the wrong one?

    We’re here to help.

    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.

    Please join us on August 1st for another edition of the “Too Proud To Ask” series, as we work towards making you feel more comfortable in the strange, mystical world of storage.

    After the webcast, check out the Q&A blog http://sniaesfblog.org/?p=643

  • 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!
