  • 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, 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!

  • IoT-Enabled Smart Mobility: Hype or Reality? Recorded: Jun 14 2017 62 mins
    Srinivasan Ramaswamy, Co-Founder & CEO, Bambucluster
    Urban mobility has always been about moving people from location to location through motorized personal or public transport. However, the proliferation of sensors, smartphones and intelligent high bandwidth networks are compelling towns & cities around the world to re-think urban mobility and consider technology enablers to drive towards a vision of “smart” mobility. Furthermore, the fundamental assumptions underpinning mobility are being challenged.

    The Internet Of Things (IoT) has been touted as a promising technology enabler to deliver on a vision of smart mobility. We will examine the current state of IoT ecosystems, IoT enabled smart mobility efforts across the globe and help delineate the architectural considerations and cross-industry industry collaboration that would be essential to successfully deliver on smart mobility initiatives. A simple use case around a town/city smart mobility service will be used to illustrate our approach.
  • IoT-Powered Smart Cities: Lower Costs; Engaged Citizens; Sustainable Economy? Recorded: Jun 14 2017 61 mins
    Gordon Feller, Co-Founder, Meeting of the Minds
    Creating smarter cities requires urban infrastructures that accelerates the transition to a smarter city. This is a project that requires much more than connected technologies.

    Emerging innovations will be critical, as will engaged businesses and citizens — and together these change-agents are reshaping the city. Such new tools are radically altering our urban assets (water, energy, transport, buildings); shifting the ways that we design and use such systems; transforming our economies; disrupting our societies. Smart and connected urban infrastructure is now a reality, and autonomous vehicles driving themselves is only one of visible elements . Smarter policies that match the smarter tech makes possible the multimodal / integrated transportation systems which provide commuters with more options; the data analytics which manage the flows inside data-powered energy and water grids. Hyper-efficient cities should be much more than hyper-productive; they must be more livable and more equitable.

    Gordon Feller will provide a few glimpses around the corners, with a clear-eyed view of urban futures which are emergent.
  • Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage: Getting from Here to There Recorded: May 9 2017 58 mins
    Chad Hintz, Cisco, Fred Zhang, Intel, John Kim, Mellanox, Alex McDonald, NetApp
    As part of the successful “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask” series, we’ve discussed numerous topics about storage devices, protocols, and networks. As we examine some of these topics further, we begin to tease out some subtle nuances; subtle, yet important nevertheless.

    In Part Sepia, we’re going to take a look at some of the terms and concepts that affect Storage Architectures as a whole. In particular, we’ll be looking at those aspects that can help or hinder storage systems inside the network:

    •Encapsulation versus Tunneling
    •IOPS vs Latency vs Jitter
    •Quality of Service (QoS)

    Each of these topics has a profound impact on storage designs and performance, but they are often misunderstood. We’re going to help you become clear on all of these very important storage concepts so that you can grok storage just a little bit more.

  • Architectural Principles for Networked Solid State Storage Access - Part 2 Recorded: Apr 19 2017 62 mins
    Doug Voigt, Chair SNIA NVM Programming Model, HPE, J Metz, SNIA Board of Directors, Cisco
    New solid state storage technologies are forcing the industry to refine distinctions between networks and other types of system interconnects. The question on everyone’s mind is, when is it beneficial to use networks to access solid state storage, particularly persistent memory? The answer to this question involves application, interconnect, memory technology and scalability factors that can be analyzed in the context of a latency budget. In this talk we will explore latency budgets for various types of solid state storage access. These can be used to determine which combinations of interconnects, technologies and scales are compatible with Load/Store instruction access and which are better suited to IO completion techniques such as polling or blocking. In this webcast you’ll learn:

    •Why latency is important in accessing solid state storage
    •How to determine the appropriate use of networking in the context of a latency budget
    •Do’s and don’ts for Load/Store access
  • How to Use the Fibre Channel Speedmap Recorded: Apr 6 2017 41 mins
    Dave Alexander, Tony Bourke
    Fibre Channel is the most well known dedicated storage networking protocol in use in data centers today, and is considered the gold standard for storage in terms of availability, reliability, and scalability. However, it does require some specific design and planning requirements. For that, storage administrators use the Fibre Channel Speedmap in order to plan.

    In this webcast, you will learn how to use the Fibre Channel Speedmap, what the numbers mean, and why its useful:

    - Why do storage administrators use the Speedmap?
    - What’s the difference between throughput, bandwidth, baud rates, and speed?
    - Why does this matter for Fibre Channel and not, say, Ethernet?

    This live webcast will be useful for anyone who wants to separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to “speeds and feeds,” and make sense of the numbers.
