  • Not Again! Data Deduplication for Storage Systems Nov 10 2020 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Abhishek Rajimwale, Dell; John Kim, NVIDIA; Alex McDonald, SNIA NSF Vice Chair
    Organizations inevitably store multiple copies of the same data. Users and applications store the same files over and over, intentionally or inadvertently. Developers, testers and analysts keep many similar copies of the same data. And backup programs copy the same or similar files daily, often to multiple locations or storage devices. It’s not unusual to end up with some data replicated thousands of times.

    So how do we stop the duplication madness? Join this webcast where we’ll discuss how to reduce the number of copies of data that get stored, mirrored, or backed up as we discuss:

    •Should I eliminate duplicates at the desktop, server, storage or backup device?
    •Dedupe technology
    •Local vs. global deduplication
    •Avoiding or reducing data copies (non-dupe)
    •Block-level vs. file- or object-level deduplication
    •In-line vs. post-process deduplication
    •More efficient backup techniques

    Register today (but only once please) for this webcast so you can start saving space and end the extra data replication.
  • Cloud computing: achieving business targets in the faster & organized way Nov 4 2020 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Dr. Pranjal Kumar Phukan, Director (Strategy), International Council for Technology, Management and Applied Engineering
    Dr. Pranjal Kumar Phukan, Director (Strategy), will talk about cloud computing use cases, case studies and how cloud computing offerings range from cloud-enabling technologies to pure cloud offerings thereby creating a spectrum of capabilities to support intended value propositions on select business goals.

    The adoption of cloud in the enterprise systems has been lifting the infrastructure as well as the overall productivity. Cloud is expected to bring vast improvements in the market with much eminent technology like AI, Automation, and IoT. Cloud providers have developed value-added services such as database as a service (DbaaS) together with analytics, cognitive and machine learning services (MLaaS). In the next few years and beyond, 5G network deployment activity is expected to increase significantly and with these high-speed networks become available, they’ll create new opportunities in the cloud computing world.

    By using tools such as cloud management platforms (CMPs) and cloud service brokers (CSBs), enterprises can manage multiple clouds as if they were a single cloud. Cloud-enabling is not cloud computing; however, it does include the technologies that allow customers to adopt cloud models. This includes technologies such as visualization software, physical servers, WAN networks and data centre colocation. Companies should consider different adoption scenarios like Decentralized/independent service acquisition, Central review, distributed cloud service acquisition and Centralized cloud service acquisition. The adoption of cloud computing is a multidimensional, multiyear program that needs at least one cloud architect to lead the organization through the transformation that a cloud program warrants. Pure cloud options are generally delivered in the public cloud over the private. This area of cloud offerings is growing rapidly although the bulk of IT remains in cloud inspired as many enterprises move from “cloud maybe” to “cloud first.

    Find out how organisations can leverage MultiCloud strategies to optimise resources across private and public multi-cloud environments.
  • Innovating in the cloud - top 5 mistakes and how to avoid them Nov 4 2020 12:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Kareem Tawansi, Chief of Innovation, Solentive | Brett Raven, Chief Customer Technology Advisor, SalesForce
    At a rate that is hard to fathom for any mere mortal, technology is developing around us and supporting every aspect of our lives. The foundation of this supersonic growth is the emergence of the cloud and everything that it facilitates - from big data and machine learning, to analytics and a variety of cognition services. Without the cloud none of this would be possible. But like everything in our world, especially something as reliant on innovation as cloud computing is, it comes with its challenges.

    So when a business owner endeavors to transition to the cloud there is much innovation involved and so much of that innovation is reliant on human psychology. In fact, as technical as it may be, it's the psychology of technology that ultimately defines whether or not a cloud innovation will succeed.

    In this webinar, Kareem Tawansi and Brett Raven, 2 leading-edge technologists who have been innovating their entire adult lives, discuss the top 5 challenges to be mindful of when innovating for the cloud, especially the human aspects, and how to avoid them.

  • Technology Implications of Internet of Payments Recorded: Oct 14 2020 53 mins
    Glyn Bowden, HPE; Richard George, Health Life Prosperity Shared Ltd; Jim Fister, The Decision Place
    Electronic payments, once the purview of a few companies, have expanded to include a variety of financial and technology companies. Internet of Payment (IoP) enables payment processing over many kinds of IoT devices and has also led to the emergence of the micro-transaction. The growth of independent payment services offering e-commerce solutions, such as Square, and the entry of new ways to pay, such as Apple Pay mean that a variety of devices and technologies also have come into wide use.

    Along with the rise and dispersal of the payment eco-system, more of our assets that we exchange for payment are becoming digitized as well. When digital ownership is equivalent to physical ownership, security and scrutiny of those digital platforms and methods takes a leap forward in significance.

    Assets and funds are now widely distributed across multiple organizations. Physical asset ownership is even being shared between many stakeholders resulting in more ownership opportunities for less investment but in a distributed way.

    In this talk we look at the impact of all of these new principles across multiple use cases and how it impacts not only on the consumers driving this behavior but on the underlying infrastructure that supports and enables it. We will look particularly at:

    •The cloud network, applications and storage implications of Internet of Payments
    •Use of emerging blockchain capabilities for payment histories and smart contracts
    •Identity and security challenges at the device in addition to point of payment
    •Considerations on architecting IoP solutions for future scale

  • Using Data Literacy to Drive Insight Recorded: Sep 17 2020 48 mins
    Glyn Bowden, HPE; Jim Fister, The Decision Place
    The pandemic has taught data professionals one essential thing. Data is like water when it escapes; it reaches every aspect of the community it inhabits. This fact becomes apparent when the general public has access to statistics, assessments, analysis and even medical journals related to the pandemic, at a scale never seen before.
    Insight understands information in context to the degree that you can gain an understanding beyond just the facts presented and instead make reasonable predictions and suppositions about new instances of that data.
    Having access to data does not automatically grant the reader knowledge of how to interpret that data or the ability to derive insight. It is even challenging to judge the accuracy or value in that data.
    The skill required is known as data literacy, and in this presentation, we will look at how access to one data source will inevitably drive the need to access more. We will examine:
    •How data literacy is defined by the ability to interpret and apply context
    •What supporting information is needed
    •How a data scientist approaches new data sources and the questions they ask of it
    •How to seek out supporting or challenging data to validate its accuracy and value for providing insight
    •How this impacts underlying information systems and how data platforms need to adjust to this purpose+ data eco-system where data sources are no longer single use

  • Scaling the Intelligent Lossless Data Center with PFC Deadlock Prevention Recorded: Jul 16 2020 38 mins
    Paul Congdon, CTO, Tallac Networks
    Intelligent digital transformation is driving change in both our personal and professional lives and the intelligence behind digital transformation is Artificial Intelligence (AI). Data centers running AI applications with massive amounts of data are recasting that data into pertinent timely information, automated human interactions, and refined decision making.

    Intelligent lossless data center networks are the fabric that support AI applications using Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) for optimized communication. RDMA thrives on a lossless Ethernet fabric which in turn depends on Priority Based Flow Control (PFC) to ensure there is no packet loss. PFC is widely available but has known issues that prevent lossless data center networks from scaling and meeting performance objectives of today’s hyperscale cloud fabrics. One important issue with PFC is the possibility of creating deadlocks within the data center network.

    In this session, learn about new industry standards that are being developed to automatically avoid PFC deadlocks and allow the Intelligent Data Center Network to scale beyond the bounds of current hand tuned high-performance computing (HPC) network fabrics.

    The need to interact with the data center in real-time is more important than ever in today’s world where augmented reality, voice recognition, and contextual searching demand immediate results. Lossless data center networks must achieve cloud scale and deliver unprecedented levels of performance and reliability to meet these real-time demands. There is simply no occasion by which deadlocks can be allowed to occur in data center networks.
