The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Storage and IT
Wednesday, April 1, 2020
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have been having quite the impact on most industries in the last couple of years, but what about our own IT industry? In this webcast find out how the rise of machine learning has created a new type of demand on IT operations teams as well as how those same teams can utilize new insights and capabilities driven by machine learning. We will explore:

  • The demand on infrastructure
  • Storage and data pipelines
  • The growing field of IT operations leveraging AI (aka AIOps)

QUIC – Will it Replace TCP/IP?
Thursday, April 2, 2020
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

QUIC is a new UDP-based transport protocol for the Internet, and specifically, the web. Originally designed and deployed by Google, it already makes up 35% of Google's egress traffic, which corresponds to about 7% of all Internet traffic. The strong interest by many other large Internet players in the ongoing IETF standardization of QUIC is likely to lead to an even greater deployment in the near future. This talk will highlight:

  • Unique design aspects of QUIC
  • Differences to the conventional HTTP/TLS/TCP web stack
  • Early performance numbers
  • Potential side effects of a broader deployment of QUIC

Storage Networking Security Series: Protecting Data at Rest
Wednesday, April 29, 2020
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

Contrary to popular belief, securing “data at rest” does not simply mean encrypting the data prior to storage. While it is true that data encryption plays a major role in securing “data at rest,” there are several other factors that come into play and are as important as encryption. In this webinar, we present the end-to-end process to securing “data at rest,” and discuss all the factors and trade-off that must be considered, and some of the general risks that need to be mitigated.

NVMe and NVMe-oF Configuration and Manageability with Swordfish and Redfish
Wednesday, May 13, 2020
11:00 am PT / 2:00 pm ET

The SNIA Swordfish specification is currently growing to include full NVMe and NVMe-oF enablement and alignment across DMTF, NVMe, and SNIA for NVMe and NVMe-oF use cases. SNIA members are contributing to specification development and helping to shape the ecosystem. This presentation will provide an overview of the work in progress to map these standards together to ensure NVMe and NVMe-oF environments can be represented entirely in Swordfish and Redfish environments.
