How can your business effectively apply conventional storage architectures to AI and ML training? AI/ML training datasets are extremely large, and the speed of training is directly related to the speed of its storage. How can a business maintain training datasets and training models, which require complex data management capability and cloud storage capacity, without dragging down the training process for artificial intelligence and machine learning applications? In this webinar, leading industry experts discuss the best storage and management practices to effectively utilize artificial intelligence and machine learning training datasets.

CXL promises to change computing through the concept of pooled and tiered memory much the same way that software-defined storage and software-defined networking have changed those two disciplines. Yet, many of the third-party management pieces required to support pooled, tiered, and extended memory do not exist today. How will the industry address these needs, and where will CXL and extended memory make its first impacts? Join a panel of vendors and experts to discuss how to best navigate this landscape.

What are the right capabilities to add to next-generation NVMe SSDs - Smart SSDs, networked SSDs, higher-performance SSDs, etc.? The NVMe specification has allowed flash to move beyond simple data storage. Simply increasing capacity though potentially has its own issues - blast radius, storage management, sharing, and more. With all of the capabilities being added to NVMe SSDs, what is the best direction to go? Join us for a robust discussion from industry experts regarding next-gen NVME SSDs and how to manage and maximize NVMe SSD capabilities.

Flash devices such as solid-state drives (SSDs) have increased in size to the point where an individual device can easily support multiple virtual machines. The best way to take advantage of these capabilities is to utilize these latest SSDs as part of a software-defined storage architecture, where resources can be put together and taken apart as workloads demand. Join our industry experts to explore best practices for SSD-based software defined architectures.

One field that has recently seen a massive influx of technology is healthcare, and in particular medical imaging. T5oday, the technologies being applied to medical imaging (and healthcare more generally) include artificial intelligence, GPGPU computing, petabyte-scale storage, and latest-generation networking technologies. Given the size of imaging databases, the storage architecture can have the largest impact on overall performance. This webinar will explore the various storage architectures and data management tools necessary to keep up with the growth in high-resolution imagery for medical and biological studies.

The increases in performance that Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe™) solid-state drives (SSDs) and NVMe over Fabric (NVMe-oF) offers over SCSI-based storage and storage networking protocols are well known. However, the adoption of NVMe-oF is still in its early days. Join industry storage networking experts as they discuss their view on the best applications and approaches for NVMe-oF based storage solutions.

The number of tools available to accelerate workloads in both the cloud and in on-premises datacenters has never been larger than it is now. Today, the tools available include GPUs, SSDs with data-steering and computational capabilities, “smart-NICS” that can manage complex data routing capabilities, and CXL-enabled pooled/tiered/extended memory architectures that improve scale and performance. Our panel of experts will explore these various technologies, and how to best utilize them in next-generation datacenter architectures.

How can you effectively monitor the security of your data, especially if you are using cloud storage resources for all or part of your data storage? While cloud data storage providers are themselves secure, companies are effectively on their own when it comes to securing data on their platforms. What is the best way to do this? What tools do the cloud providers available? What third-party tools can you utilize on their platforms? And how do you recover from ransomware attacks? In this webinar, leading experts showcase tools, approaches, and evolving opportunities to protect your data.

The Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP) was initiated in 2011 to apply the benefits of open source and open collaboration to hardware, with the goal of bringing the benefits of “cloud-scale” computing to all datacenter operators. OCP has produced a number of novel approaches to enable compute-at-scale  for on-premises datacenters. Please join us and our panel to discuss some of the latest developments announced at the 2023 OCP Summit, and how these capabilities can be utilized in your datacenter architecture

Which is better for HPC storage: local storage, large arrays, data lakes, or clustered file systems? HPC systems can have hundreds or thousands of nodes, and often contain tens of thousands of GPGPUs. While InfiniBand is still the leading fabric for HPC, Ethernet is also gaining more interest as an option. In this webinar, leading enterprise storage experts provide an analysis of each of these options, as well as exploring whether it is worthwhile for your organization to integrate HPC storage with the rest of your enterprise storage.
