    Scale-out block, file, and object storage as well as scale-out hyper-convergence have become all the rage in today's data center. There are very good reasons for this trend. Scale-out enables lower costs via pay as you go; much greater scalability; higher data availability; better data longevity or durability; simpler management; and infinitely easier tech refresh. But there is a dark side to scale-out. That dark side is the elimination of the deterministic system bus for a non-deterministic general-purpose network leading to inconsistent highly variable performance. It can cause application errors and occasionally violate relational database ACID compliance requirements. When that scale-out spreads across geographic distances and Telcos, the problem becomes considerably worse.

    Attendees at this session will learn how to utilize SDN and OpenFlow with scale-out storage and hyper-convergence to make those non-deterministic networks deterministic and achieve significantly better and more consistent application performance. The discussion will cover all scale-out storage architectures (block, file, and object), scale-out database architectures (SQL, NoSQL, and Hadoop), and scale-out hyper-convergence.
