Storage Technologies & Practices Ripe for Refresh
Wednesday, February 3, 2021
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

So much of what we discuss within SNIA is the latest emerging technologies in storage. While it’s good to know about what technology is coming, it’s also important to understand the technologies that should be sunsetted.

In this webcast, you’ll learn about storage technologies and practices in your data center that are ready for refresh or possibly retirement. Find out why some long-standing technologies and practices should be re-evaluated. We’ll discuss:

  • Obsolete hardware, protocols, interfaces and other aspects of storage
  • Why certain technologies are no longer in general use
  • Technologies on their way out and why
  • Drivers for change
  • Justifications for obsoleting proven technologies
  • Trade-offs risks: new faster/better vs. proven/working tech

OpenFabrics Alliance (Virtual) Workshop 2021
Monday, March 15 - Friday, March 19, 2021
Virtual Workshop

The OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) is committed to accelerating the development of high performance fabrics. The annual OFA Workshop is a premier means of fostering collaboration among those who develop fabrics, deploy fabrics, and create applications that rely on fabrics. It is the only event of its kind where fabric developers and users can discuss emerging fabric technologies, collaborate on future industry requirements, and address problems that exist today.

Click here to view the 2021 Call for Sessions – deadline to submit a proposal is January 22, 2021 by 5 p.m. PT.

NVMe-oF: Looking Beyond Performance Hero Numbers
Thursday, March 25, 2021
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

When it comes to performance of NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) one should look beyond test results that demonstrate NVMe-oF’s dramatic reduction in latency. There are other, more important, questions that should be asked in order to understand the fabric’s real-world benefits. This webcast will attempt to answer questions beyond “it depends.”

Gain insights from an industry wide panel of NVMe and fabric technology experts as they discuss the thought process you can use to determine pros and cons of a fabric for your environment, including:

  • Use cases driving fabric choices
  • NVMe transports and their strengths
  • Industry dynamics driving adoption
  • Considerations for scale, security, and efficiency
