Culver City, CA

Come to the one-day Creative Storage Conference to make valuable connections and to understand and participate in the latest trends and requirements for digital storage to serve creative minds and create new and growing markets.

Media and Entertainment is embracing IP-workflows and cloud storage. Flash memory is starting to be used for post production and other applications. All this is needed to provide enough storage and performance for 4K, 8K, HDR and multi-camera (e.g. 360-video) projects while keeping costs under control. In media and entertainment, digital storage is taking off.

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

The “Great Storage Debates” webcast series continues, this time on FCoE vs. iSCSI vs. iSER. Like past “Great Storage Debates,” the goal of this presentation is not to have a winner emerge, but rather provide vendor-neutral education on the capabilities and use cases of these technologies so that attendees can become more informed and make educated decisions.

One of the features of modern data centers is the ubiquitous use of Ethernet. Although many data centers run multiple separate networks (Ethernet and Fibre Channel (FC)), these parallel infrastructures require separate switches, network adapters, management utilities and staff, which may not be cost effective.

Multiple options for Ethernet-based SANs enable network convergence, including FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) which allows FC protocols over Ethernet and Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) for transport of SCSI commands over TCP/IP-Ethernet networks. There are also new Ethernet technologies that reduce the amount of CPU overhead in transferring data from server to client by using Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA), which is leveraged by iSER (iSCSI Extensions for RDMA) to avoid unnecessary data copying.

That leads to several questions about FCoE, iSCSI and iSER:

  • If we can run various network storage protocols over Ethernet, what differentiates them?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of FCoE, iSCSI and iSER?
  • How are they structured?
  • What software and hardware do they require?
  • How are they implemented, configured and managed?
  • Do they perform differently?
  • What do you need to do to take advantage of them in the data center?
  • What are the best use cases for each?

Join our SNIA experts as they answer all these questions and more on the next Great Storage Debate.

Monday, June 25 - Tuesday, June 26, 2018
London, UK

The second annual In-Memory Computing Summit Europe, has been relocated to London this year. The In-Memory Computing Summit is the only industry-wide event which focuses on the full range of in-memory computing-related technologies and solutions. The conference is attended by technical decision makers, implementers and developers who make or influence purchasing decisions about in-memory computing, Big Data, Fast Data, IoT and HPC solutions. Hosted in London, the event is a meeting place for in-memory computing experts from across Europe and Asia.

Wednesday, June 27 - Friday, June 29, 2018
Boston, MA

Storage Field Day (SFD) focuses on enterprise storage and data protection in both physical and virtual worlds. SFD brings together the best independent thought leaders in data storage to discuss pressing issues and technology advancements with key companies in the space.

Monday, July 23 - Friday, July 27, 2018
Portland, Oregon

Hosted by the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF),  and co-hosted with our alliance partner, Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), the twelfth annual Alliance Partner Technical Symposium will be held on Monday, July 23 through Friday, July 27, 2018. Led by DMTF's VP of Alliances, John Leung, this year's event offers meetings focused on technical topics and addresses the technical work of interest to each of the DMTF’s Alliance Partners

Tuesday, August 7 - Thursday, August 9, 2018
Santa Clara, CA USA

Flash memory is a key technology enabling new designs for many products in the consumer, computer and enterprise markets.

The Flash Memory Summit is the only place where you will hear the people making these products happen! Network with companies and people that will create the next generation of hardware and software at the Flash Memory Summit.

HIGHLIGHTS

Three days packed full of seminars, forums, keynotes, and sessions:

  • Half-day seminars on error-correcting codes, PCI Express, NVMe, and introduction to SSDs (Monday, Pre-Conference)
  • Full-day forums on flash memory-based architectures, NVMe and PCIe SSDs, and controllers
  • Half-day forums on enterprise SSDs, enterprise caching, enterprise applications, PCIe power budgets, virtualization, client caching, data centers, and PCIe storage
  • Chat with the Experts
Monday, September 24 - Thursday, September 27, 2018
Santa Clara, CA USA

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.
