Webcast - 10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

What new security requirements apply to Persistent Memory (PM)? While many existing security practices such as access control, encryption, multi-tenancy and key management apply to persistent memory, new security threats may result from the differences between PM and storage technologies. The SNIA PM security threat model provides a starting place for exposing system behavior, protocol and implementation security gaps that are specific to PM. This in turn motivates industry groups such as TCG and JEDEC to standardize methods of completing the PM security solution space.

Webcast - 2:00 am PT / 5:00 am ET

Alex McDonald, NetApp

The SNIA Swordfish™ specification helps to provide a unified approach for the management of storage and servers in hyperscale and cloud infrastructure environments, making it easier for IT administrators to integrate scalable solutions into their data centers. Swordfish builds on the Distributed Management Task Force’s (DMTF’s) Redfish® specification using the same easy-to-use RESTful methods and lightweight JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) formatting. 

Join this session to receive an overview of Swordfish including the new functionality added in version 1.0.6 released in March, 2018.

Webcast - 10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

Network-intensive applications, like networked storage or clustered computing, require a network infrastructure with high bandwidth and low latency. Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) supports zero-copy data transfers by enabling movement of data directly to or from application memory. This results in high bandwidth, low latency networking with little involvement from the CPU.

In the next SNIA ESF “Great Storage Debates” series webcasts, we’ll be examining two commonly known RDMA protocols that run over Ethernet: RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) and IETF-standard iWARP. Both are Ethernet-based RDMA technologies that reduce the amount of CPU overhead in transferring data among servers and storage systems. The goal of this presentation is to provide a solid foundation on both RDMA technologies in a vendor-neutral setting that discusses the capabilities and use cases for each so that attendees can become more informed and make educated decisions. Join our SNIA experts as they answer all these questions and more on this next Great Storage Debate.

Webcast - 10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

In the history of enterprise storage there has been a trend to move from local storage to centralized, networked storage. Customers found that networked storage provided higher utilization, centralized and hence cheaper management, easier failover, and simplified data protection, which has driven the move to FC-SAN, iSCSI, NAS and object storage.

Recently, distributed storage has become more popular where storage lives in multiple locations but can still be shared. Advantages of distributed storage include the ability to scale-up performance and capacity simultaneously and--in the hyperconverged use case--to use each node (server) for both compute and storage. Attend this webcast to learn about: 

  • Pros and cons of centralized vs. distributed storage
  • Typical use cases for centralized and distributed storage
  • How distributed works for SAN, NAS, parallel file systems, and object storage
  • How hyperconverged has introduced a new way of consuming storage

SNIA's Storage Developer Conference (SDC) is the destination for technical discussions and education on the latest storage technologies and standards. Created by developers for developers – Spend 4 days with your peers.

New Content and New Insights

SDC’s Agenda was developed under the supervision of the SNIA Technical Council and we’ve made sure that this conference is the one business–critical event that today’s storage professionals consider indispensable. Join us as we focus on the tools, technologies, and tactics that you need in data storage, management, and security.
