Cloud Data Management & Interoperability: Why A CDMI Standard Matters
Wednesday, December 9, 2020
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

The Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI™) International Standard is intended for application developers who are implementing cloud storage systems, and who are developing applications to manage and consume cloud storage. It documents how to access cloud storage namespaces and how to manage the data stored in these namespaces. In this webcast we’ll provide an overview of the CDMI standard and cover CDMI 2.0:

  • Support for encrypted objects
  • Delegated access control
  • General clarifications
  • Errata contributed by vendors implementing the CDMI standard

Digital Storage Stars in the Media and Entertainment Industry

Digital storage is a critical technology for professional Media and Entertainment (M&E). With the Covid-19 pandemic much M&E work went remote, enabled by cloud based services and private and public cloud storage. NVMe SSDs and emerging memories are assuming increased use in high resolution, high frame rate, high dynamic range video content workflows. Between 2019 and 2025, about a 3X increase is expected in the required storage capacity in the industry and a 3.4X increase in storage capacity shipped per year. Cloud storage capacity for the M&E industry will increase 13X between 2019 and 2025.

This webinar looks at the trends driving demand for digital storage in all parts of the M&E industry, with data from the 2020 Digital Storage in Media and Entertainment report from Coughlin Associates presented by Tom Coughlin, who also serves as the volunteer Education Chair for the SNIA Compute, Memory, and Storage Initiative.

Data Privacy and Data Protection in the COVID Era
Wednesday, January 20, 2021
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

The COVID-19 Pandemic has amplified cybersecurity concerns particularly related to the cloud. Threat actors have recognized a unique opportunity to exploit pandemic-related vulnerabilities through social engineering attacks, business email compromise, work from home or other remote weak points. This results in increased risk and occurrence of ransomware attacks and data breaches that can disrupt or totally compromise organizations’ ability to conduct business. These security incidents can also subject victims to liability for violations of privacy and data breach notification laws. Join this webcast as SNIA experts will discuss:

  • Changing threat landscape due to COVID
  • Recent attacker exploits
  • Common security failures and their consequences
  • Strategies to combat malware
  • Minimizing ransomware risks
  • How emerging technologies (5G, IoT, AI, etc.) expand the threat landscape
