Storage Technologies & Practices Ripe for Refresh: Part 2
John Kim, NVIDIA; Tom Friend, Illuminosi; Alex McDonald, Independent Consultant Vice Chair SNIA NSF
About this talk
So much of what we discuss in SNIA is the latest emerging technologies in storage. While it’s good to know all about the coming technologies, it’s also important to understand those technologies being sunsetted. In this series, we cover obsolete hardware, protocols, interfaces and other aspects of storage
In our second installment of our Storage Technologies & Practices Ripe for Refresh, we will cover older HDD device interfaces and file systems. Advice will be given on how to replace these in production environments as well as why these changes are recommended. Also, we will be covering protocols that you should consider removing from your networks, either older versions of protocols where only newer versions should be used, or protocols that have been supplanted by superior options and should be discontinued entirely.
Finally, we will look at physical networking interfaces and cabling that are popular today but face an uncertain future as networking speeds grow ever faster.
With virtualization and cloud computing revolutionizing the data center, it's time that the network has its own revolution. Join the Network Infrastructure channel on all the hottest topics for network and storage professionals such as software-defined networking, WAN optimization and more to maintain performance and service in your infrastructure…
