Abstract: 

Everyone has heard talk of cloud but do you know how to deploy one? This session will be a technical dive into implementations of popular cloud use cases including storage clouds (i.e.: backup and archive) and application or enterprise public, private, and hybrid clouds and how cloud fits into your existing enterprise IT operations. SNIA’s Cloud Storage Initiative (CSI) has created the Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI) as a de jure standard which can assist you in your cloud deployments utilizing both traditional file systems and new cloud file system formats. This presentation will dive into the details of designing and deploying public, private, and hybrid clouds including how CDMI can assist with cloud federation, peering, differentiation, and how CDMI can interact with external systems for event management, configuration management, workflows, auditing, billing, and authorization.

Learning Objectives

Understanding how cloud computing and specifically CDMI interact with traditional file systems (CIFS, NFS, FC) and new cloud formats such as Amazon S3.
Gain an understanding of how cloud can integrate into existing IT Service Management (ITSM) or ITIL best practices for event, configuration, incident, and problem management.
Presenting in detail reference architectures for cloud and an overview of the reference deployments done to date and how it fits into standard tiered storage enterprise architectures
