Abstract: 

Ethernet technology had been a proven standard for over 30 years and there are many networked storage solutions based on Ethernet. While storage devices are evolving rapidly with new standards and specifications, Ethernet is moving towards higher speeds as well: 10Gbps, 25Gbps, 50Gbps and 100Gbps….making it time to re-introduce Ethernet Networked Storage.

This live Webcast will start by providing a solid foundation on Ethernet networked storage and move to the latest advancements, challenges, use cases and benefits. You’ll hear:

  • The evolution of storage devices - spinning media to NVM
  • New standards: NVMe and NVMe over Fabric
  • A retrospect of traditional networked storage including SAN and NAS
  • How new storage devices and new standards would impact Ethernet networked storage
  • Ethernet based software-defined storage and the hyper-converged model
  • A look ahead at new Ethernet technologies optimized for networked storage in the future
