    The role of the storage administrator is rapidly evolving. We're moving from the arcane arts of Fibre Channel zoning and RAIDset configurations up the stack to ensuring that data is stored and protected where it's needed while of course dealing with an ever growing set of data.

    This workshop will explore this new reality of storage administration. We'll start advancements in on-premises storage management from software defined storage and hyperconverged infrastructure through the integration of storage, as well as storage management into hypervisors (VVols, VASA), cloud platforms (Cinder) and operating systems.

    We'll then move to the public cloud examining the range of storage services available from cloud providers along with the good and bad uses cases for each.

    Since even organizations planning a complete conversion to public cloud technologies will have to run a hybrid cloud for some period of time we'll move on to examine the possibilities, and pitfalls of hybrid cloud solutions. Storage has of course been the Achilles heel of many hybrid cloud efforts as data gravity raises its ugly head. We'll pay special attention to solutions that address the problems of access and data transfer latency that have derailed too many hybrid cloud efforts.

    Topics Covered:
    • The evolving role of the storage administrator
    • Automating storage management
    • Is hyperconvergence the answer?
    • Cloud storage types and applications
    • Using APIs from REST to VASA
    • Advancements in data protection including copy data management.

    Who should attend:
    This session will help storage and system administrators simplify managing the storage they have on-premises, DevOps practitioners integrate storage into their processes and tools and higher level IT management understand how to bring their storage group into the 21st century.
