Understanding Storage Security and Threats
Tuesday, October 8, 2019
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

What does it mean to be protected and safe? You need the right people and the right technology. This presentation is going to go into the broad introduction of security principles in general. This will include some of the main aspects of security, including defining the terms that you must know, if you hope to have a good grasp of what makes something secure or not. We’ll be talking about the scope of security, including threats, vulnerabilities, and attacks – and what that means in real storage terms. In this live webcast we will cover:

  • Protecting the data (Keeping “the bad” out)
  • Threat landscape, Bad actors/hackers
  • Attack vectors, attack surfaces, vulnerabilities
  • Physical security issues
  • Layers of protection (encryption – last line of defense)
  • Remediation after a breach/incident

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.

Webcast: The Scale-Out File System Architecture Overview
Thursday, February 28, 2019
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

This presentation will provide an introduction to scale-out-file systems and cover: general principles when architecting a scale-out file system storage solution; hardware and software design considerations for different workloads; storage challenges when serving a large number of compute nodes, e.g. name space consistency, distributed locking, data replication, etc.; use cases for scale-out file systems; and, common benchmark and performance analysis approaches

Webcast: Networking Requirements for Hyperconvergence
Tuesday, February 5, 2019
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

In this webinar, we’re going to take a look behind the scenes, peek behind the GUI, so to speak. We’ll be talking about what goes on back there, and shine the light behind the bezels.

Webcast: File vs. Block vs. Object Storage
Tuesday, February 5, 2019
5:00 am ET / 10:00 am GMT

In this webcast, we will compare three types of data access: file, block and object storage, and the access methods that support them. Each has its own set of use cases, and advantages and disadvantages. 

Webcast: What NVMe™/TCP Means for Networked Storage
Tuesday, January 22, 2019
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

In this webinar, the lead author of the NVMe/TCP specification, Sagi Grimburg, and J Metz, member of the SNIA and NVMe Boards of Directors, will discuss: what NVMe/TCP is and how it works, trade-offs, expectations, what network administrators should know, technologies that can make NVMe/TCP work better, and more!
