The Influence of IoT on Data Strategy
Thursday, May 14, 2020
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

More and more we are seeing compute and inference move to the edge. This is driven by the growth in capability to not only generate data from sensors, devices and by people operating in the field, but also by the interaction between those devices.

This new source of data and information brings with it unique challenges to the way we store and transmit data as well as the way we need to curate it. In this webcast we will look at:

  • New patterns generated by the explosion of the Internet of Things
  • How IoT is impacting storage and data strategies
  • Security and privacy issues and considerations
  • How to think about the lifecycle of our information in this new environment

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.

Your Storage Infrastructure on AI
Monday, May 11, 2020
9:00 am GMT / 5:00 am ET

In this webcast, we will explore why your storage may be acting strangely now that it’s been subjected to the whims of data scientists. We’ll look at how and why the I/O patterns have changed, where this will lead, and some of the tactics and strategies you can deploy now to prevent impact from this new movement of storage saboteurs!

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

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)

Ethernet-attached SSDs—Brilliant Idea or Storage Silliness?
Tuesday, March 17, 2020
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

Several SSD and networking vendors have recently demonstrated ways to connect SSDs directly to an Ethernet network. They propose that deploying Ethernet SSDs will be more scalable, easier to manage, more performant, and/or lower cost than traditional storage networking solutions that use a storage controller (or hyperconverged node) between the SSDs and the network.

Who would want to attach SSDs directly to the network? Are these vendors brilliant or simply trying to solve a problem that doesn’t exist? What are the different solutions that could benefit from Ethernet SSDs? Which protocols would one use to access them? And how do Ethernet SSDs relate to computational storage? Join this SNIA Networking Storage Forum webcast to learn all this and more as SNIA experts discuss:

  • What are the appropriate use cases for Ethernet SSDs?
  • Why Ethernet SSDs could be appealing and more efficient
  • How Ethernet SSDs compare to other forms of storage networking
  • Different ways Ethernet SSDs can be accessed, such as JBOF/NBOF, NVMe-oF, and Key Value
  • How do Ethernet-attached SSDs enable composable infrastructures?
