Storage Technologies & Practices Ripe for Refresh: Part 2
Tuesday, June 22, 2021
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

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. 

Confidential Compute: Protecting Data in Use
Wednesday, June 23, 2021
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

As noted in our panel discussion “What is Confidential Computing and Why Should I Care?,” Confidential Computing is an emerging industry initiative focused on helping to secure data in use. The efforts can enable encrypted data to be processed in memory while lowering the risk of exposing it to the rest of the system, thereby reducing the potential for sensitive data to be exposed while providing a higher degree of control and transparency for users.

As computing moves to span multiple environments from on-premises to public cloud to edge, organizations need protection controls that help safeguard sensitive IP and workload data wherever the data resides. In this live webcast we’ll cover:

  • How Confidential Computing works in multi-tenant cloud environments
  • How sensitive data can be isolated from other privileged portions of the stack
  • Applications in financial services, healthcare industries, and broader enterprise applications
  • Contributing to the Confidential Computing Consortium

Accelerate Disaggregated Storage to Optimize Data-Intensive Workloads
Tuesday, June 29, 2021
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

Thanks to big data, artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of things (IoT), and 5G, demand for data storage continues to grow significantly. The rapid growth is causing storage and database-specific processing challenges within current storage architectures. New architectures, designed with millisecond latency, and high throughput, offer in-network and storage computational processing to offload and accelerate data-intensive workloads.

Join technology innovators as they highlight how to drive value and accelerate SSD storage through the specialized implementation of key value technology to remove inefficiencies through a Data Processing Unit for hardware acceleration of the storage stacks, and a hardware-enabled Storage Data Processor to accelerate compute-intensive functions. By joining, you will learn why SSDs are a staple in modern storage architectures. These disaggregated systems use just a fraction of computational load and power while unlocking the full potential of networked flash storage.

Virtual Conference

SNIA is pleased to present a custom track at the upcoming SODAcon Global – Virtual on July 13-14, 2021, featuring a keynote by Richelle Ahlvers, SNIA Board of Directors, and sessions from SNIA CMSI and SNIA SMI on storage management, edge computing, data protection and security, computational storage, and cloud native storage. Attendees can also connect with SNIA leaders in the Solutions Showcase.  SNIA is an alliance partner of the SODA Foundation, and their technical conference brings together industry leaders, developers, and end users to set the pivotal direction for the open data management ecosystem.  Registration is complimentary until June 15, 2021.

SDC India
Thursday, August 5, 2021

The SNIA India Storage Developer Conference (SDC India) has traditionally taken place in Bangalore, and was staged as a virtual conference for the first time last December. August will see the return of the virtual conference offering the same great technical content and opportunities for networking but from the safety of your own home/office.

Storage Developer Conference
Tuesday, September 28 - Wednesday, September 29, 2021
Virtual Conference

Taking place virtually on September 28-29, 2021, SNIA's Storage Developer Conference (SDC) will bring the global storage developer community together to collaborate and network through the sharing of ideas, industry developments and best practices.
