Kubernetes in the Cloud (Part 3): Stateful Workloads
Tuesday, August 20, 2019
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

This webcast will take a look at when it’s appropriate to run a stateful workload in cluster, or out. We’ll discuss the best options for running a workload like a database on the cloud, or in the cluster, and what’s needed to set that up.

How to Be a Part of the Real-World Workload Revolution
Tuesday, July 9, 2019
11:00 am PT / 2:00 pm ET

Real-world digital workloads often behave very differently from what might be expected. The equipment used in a computing system may function differently than anticipated. Unknown quirks in complicated software and operations running alongside the workload may be doing more or less than the user initially supposed. To truly understand what is happening, the right approach is to test and monitor the systems’ behaviors as real code is executed. By using measured data designers, vendors and service personnel can pinpoint the actual limits and bottlenecks that a particular workload is experiencing. Join the SNIA Solid State Storage Special Interest Group to learn how to be a part of the real-world workload revolution

Introduction to SNIA Swordfish™ Features and Profiles
Thursday, June 27, 2019
9:00 am PT / 12:00 pm ET

Ready to ride the wave to what’s next in storage management? As a part of an ongoing series of educational materials to help speed your SNIA Swordfish™ implementation in this Swordfish School webcast, Storage standards expert Richelle Ahlvers (Broadcom Inc.) will provide an introduction to the Features and Profiles concepts, describe how they work together, and talk about how to use both Features and Profiles when implementing Swordfish.

Introduction to Incast, Head of Line Blocking, and Congestion Management
Tuesday, June 18, 2019
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

For a long time, the architecture and best practices of storage networks have been relatively well-understood. Recently, however, advanced capabilities have been added to storage that could have broader impacts on networks than we think.

The three main storage network transports - Fibre Channel, Ethernet, and InfiniBand – all have mechanisms to handle increased traffic, but they are not all affected or implemented the same way. For instance, placing a protocol such as NVMe over Fabrics can mean very different things when looking at one networking method in comparison to another.

New Landscape of Network Speeds
Tuesday, May 21, 2019
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

In the short period from 2014-2018, Ethernet equipment vendors have announced big increases in line speeds, shipping 25, 50, and 100 Gigabits-per -second (Gb/s) speeds and announcing 200/400 Gb/s. At the same time Fibre Channel vendors have launched 32GFC, 64GFC and 128GFC technology while InfiniBand has reached 200Gb/s (called HDR) speeds. But who exactly is asking for these faster new networking speeds, and how will they use them? Are there servers, storage, and applications that can make good use of them? How are these new speeds achieved?

Webcast: Everything You Wanted to Know...But Were Too Proud to Ask - The Memory Pod
Thursday, May 16, 2019
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

In this webcast, SNIA experts will discuss the traditional uses of storage and memory as a cache, how we can build and use systems based on PM, what a system with storage, persistent memory and DRAM would look like, whether we need a new programming model to take advantage of PM, interesting use cases for systems equipped with PM, and how we might take better advantage of this new technology.

Kubernetes in the Cloud
Thursday, May 2, 2019
11:00 am PT / 2:00 pm ET

Kubernetes (k8s) is an open-source system for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. This webcast will introduce Kubernetes and present use cases that make clear where and why you would want to use it in your IT environment. We’ll also focus on the enterprise requirements of orchestration and containerization, and specifically on the storage aspects and best practices.

Webcast: ESG Research: The Hybrid Cloud Tipping Point
Tuesday, April 23, 2019
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

Has hybrid cloud reached a tipping point? According to research from the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), IT organizations today are struggling to strike the right balance between public cloud and their on-premises infrastructure. In this SNIA webcast, ESG senior analyst, Scott Sinclair, will share research on current cloud trends, followed by a panel discussion with Scott Sinclair and SNIA cloud experts Alex McDonald, Michelle Tidwell, Mike Jochimsen and Eric Lakin.
