  • Networking in the Container Age Feb 13 2018 10:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    JR Rivers, Cofounder and CTO of Cumulus Networks
    Container based applications are exploding in popularity as they simplify and speed up application development and deployment. Thankfully, technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, and Mesos help to orchestrate and manage the containers. But with their dynamic nature, how do operations teams get their heads wrapped around inter container connectivity? How do they get full visibility across the entire fabric? How do they understand what was, or was not, working 10 minutes ago and why?

    In this webcast, you’ll learn about the popular container networking models and the pros and cons of each. You’ll also see how to track each container’s identity and bandwidth, how to simplify network port mapping, and realize the benefits of telemetry analysis through the entire fabric for enhanced troubleshooting.

    Orchestration tools for Linux containers can work in concert with Linux networking tools to help operationalize container based applications -- it’s just common sense. Come join us to find out how to make this a reality in your environment.
  • Fibre Channel Performance: Congestion, Slow Drain, and Over-Utilization, Oh My! Feb 6 2018 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Ed Mazurek, Cisco, Earl Apellanes, Broadcom, David Rogers, Teledyne LeCroy
    Today's Fibre Channel SANs are tasked with reliably delivering huge amounts of data with almost zero latency in an environment with a large variance of end device capabilities. Fibre Channel is a lossless network protocol but what ramifications does that have? What is considered a good SAN design and what are best practices? What situations can lead to suboptimal performance? How can a device that is not performing well affect the performance of devices even on different parts of the SAN? Can a device that is returning credits without delay affect the SAN just like a device that is returning credits slowly?

    Get answers to these questions and more in this live FCIA webcast where you’ll learn:

    •How Fibre Channel achieves a lossless data delivery
    •The definition of "slow drain“
    •Basic slow drain indications and what they mean
    •“Over” Utilization - How a device that isn't "slow drain" by the typical definition can affect a SAN in a similar fashion as a slow drain device
    •How to prevent, Identify, and resolve performance problems

    Register today for this live event. Our experts will be on hand to answer your questions.
  • FC vs. iSCSI Jan 31 2018 7:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Fred Knight, NetApp, John Kim, SNIA ESF Chair, Mellanox, Alex McDonald, SNIA ESF Vice Chair, NetApp
    In the enterprise, block storage typically handles the most critical applications such as database, ERP, product development, and tier-1 virtualization. The dominant connectivity option for this has long been Fibre Channel SAN (FC-SAN), but recently many customers and block storage vendors have turned to iSCSI instead. FC-SAN is known for its reliability, lossless nature, 2x FC speed bumps, and carefully tested interoperability between vendors. iSCSI is known for running on ubiquitous Ethernet networks, 10x Ethernet speed bumps, and supporting commodity networking hardware from many vendors.

    Because, FCoE also delivers increasing performance as Ethernet speeds increase – and, Fibre Channel also delivers increasing performance as FC speeds increase. Historically, FC delivered speed bumps at a more rapid interval (2x bumps), while Ethernet delivered their speed bumps at a slower pace (10x bumps), but that has changed recently with Ethernet adding 2.5G, 5G, 25G, 40G, and 50G to the traditional 1G, 10G, 100G timeline.

    As the storage world moves to more flash and other non-volatile memory, more cloud, and more virtualization (or more containers), it’s time to revisit one of the great IT debates: Should you deploy Fibre Channel or iSCSI? Attend this SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum webcast to learn:
    •Will Fibre Channel or iSCSI deliver faster performance? Does it depend on the workload?
    •How is the wire speed race going between FC and iSCSI? Does anyone actually run iSCSI on 100GbE? When will 128Gb Fibre Channel arrive?
    •Can any server or storage array actually support more than 32Gb/s or 40Gb/s speeds?
    •Do Linux, Windows, or hypervisors have a preference?
    •Is one really easier [to install/manage] than the other, or are they just different?
    •How does the new NVMe over Fabrics protocol affect this debate?

    Join SNIA experts as they compare FC vs. iSCSI and argue in an energetic yet friendly way about their differences and merits of each.

  • 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

  • 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!
