  • Architectural Principles for Networked Solid State Storage Access - Part 2 Apr 19 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 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 Apr 6 2017 6:00 pm UTC 75 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.
  • Rockin’ and Rollin’ with SMB3 Apr 5 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Ned Pyle, SMB Program Manager, Microsoft, John Kim, SNIA-ESF Chair, Mellanox, Alex McDonald, SNIA-ESF Vice Chair, NetApp
    Server Message Block (SMB) is the core file-transfer protocol of Windows, MacOS and Samba, and has become widely deployed. It’s ubiquitous - a 30-year-old family of network code.

    However, the latest iteration of SMB3 is almost unrecognizable when compared to versions only a few years old. Extensive reengineering has led to advanced capabilities that include multichannel, transparent failover, scale out, and encryption. SMB Direct makes use of RDMA networking, creates block transport system and provides reliable transport to zetabytes of unstructured data, worldwide.

    SMB3 forms the basis of hyper-converged and scale-out systems for virtualization and SQL Server. It is available for a variety of hardware devices, from printers, network-attached storage appliances, to Storage Area Networks (SANs). It is often the most prevalent protocol on a network, with high-performance data transfers as well as efficient end-user access over wide-area connections.

    In this SNIA-ESF Webcast, Microsoft’s Ned Pyle, program manager of the SMB protocol, will discuss the current state of SMB, including:

    •Brief background on SMB
    •An overview of the SMB 3.x family, first released with Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, MacOS 10.10, Samba 4.1, and Linux CIFS 3.12
    •What changed in SMB 3.1.1
    •Understanding SMB security, scenarios, and workloads
    •The deprecation and removal of the legacy SMB1 protocol
    •How SMB3 supports hyperconverged and scale-out storage
  • What Does Hyperconverged Mean to Storage Mar 15 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Greg Schulz, founder and analyst of Server StorageIO, John Kim, SNIA-ESF Chair, Mellanox
    Converged Infrastructure (CI), Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) along with Cluster or Cloud In Box (CIB) are popular trend topics that have gained both industry and customer adoption. As part of data infrastructures, CI, CIB and HCI enable simplified deployment of resources (servers, storage, I/O networking, hardware, software) across different environments. However, what do these approaches mean for a hyperconverged storage environment? What are the key concerns and considerations related specifically to storage? Most importantly, how do you know that you’re asking the right questions in order to get to the right answers?

    Find out in this live SNIA-ESF webcast where expert Greg Schulz, founder and analyst of Server StorageIO, will move beyond the hype to discuss:

    · What are the storage considerations for CI, CIB and HCI
    · Fast applications and fast servers need fast server storage I/O
    · Networking and server storage I/O considerations
    · How to avoid aggravation-causing aggregation (bottlenecks)
    · Aggregated vs. disaggregated vs. hybrid converged
    · Planning, comparing, benchmarking and decision-making
    · Data protection, management and east-west I/O traffic
    · Application and server I/O north-south traffic

    •iSCSI Definition
    •iSCSI offload
    •Host-based iSCSI
    •TCP offload

    Like nearly everything else in storage, there is more here than just a protocol. If you are interested in making the most of your iSCSI solution, this webcast is for you.
  • Introducing Fibre Channel NVMe Recorded: Feb 16 2017 58 mins
    Craig Carlson, FCIA Board of Directors, Cavium, J Metz, FCIA Board of Directors, Cisco
    NVMe is one of the most interesting new developments to happen to storage in the past several years, and NVMe over Fabrics extends these capabilities over a Storage Area Network. Given that 80% of all existing Flash storage solutions deployed are interconnected with Fibre Channel (FC), many questions have arisen about what it is, how it works, and why someone might want to consider using Fibre Channel for NVMe-based solutions.

    In this technical webinar, we’re going to be addressing some of these fundamental questions:

    - How does Fibre Channel and NVMe work together?
    - How is NVMe over Fabrics different from “traditional” Fibre Channel?
    - What changes do I have to make to my Fibre Channel environment in order to get NVMe over Fabrics to work?
    - What would an NVMe over Fibre Channel (FC-NVMe) architecture look like?
    - What advantages would I get using Fibre Channel in an NVMe solution?

    Check out this live webinar to learn more about this exciting new technology from the people who are developing it.
  • Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask: Buffering Recorded: Feb 14 2017 64 mins
    John Kim & Rob Davis, Mellanox, Mark Rogov, Dell EMC, Dave Minturn, Intel
    Buffers, Queues, and Caches, oh my! Buffers and Queues are part of every data center architecture, and a critical part of performance – both in improving it as well as hindering it. A well-implemented buffer can mean the difference between a finely run system and a confusing nightmare of troubleshooting. Knowing how buffers and queues work in storage can help make your storage system shine.

    However, there is something of a mystique surrounding these different data center components, as many people don’t realize just how they’re used and why. In this pod of the “Too Proud To Ask” series, we’re going to be demystifying this very important aspect of data center storage. You’ll learn:

    •What are buffers, caches, and queues, and why you should care about the differences?
    •What’s the difference between a read cache and a write cache?
    •What does “queue depth” mean?
    •What’s a buffer, a ring buffer, and host memory buffer, and why does it matter?
    •What happens when things go wrong?

    These are just some of the topics we’ll be covering, and while it won’t be exhaustive look at buffers, caches and queues, you can be sure that you’ll get insight into this very important, and yet often overlooked, part of storage design.
