For anyone in the storage industry, SNIA stands out as a prominent community and a true collection of some of the greatest minds and strongest voices in the ecosystem. The SNIA organization is a non-profit global group dedicated to developing standards and education programs to advance storage and information technology. This makes it a special honor to share that Magnition founder, Irfan Ahmad, will be presenting two sessions at this year’s virtual event.
The Future of our Storage World is Autonomous
Today, storage and memory hierarchies are manually tuned and sized at design time. But tomorrow’s workloads are increasingly dynamic, multi-tenant and variable. Can we build autonomous storage systems that can adapt to changing application workloads?
In this session, we demonstrate how breakthroughs in autonomous storage systems research can deliver impressive gains in cost, performance, latency control and customer out-of-the-box experience.
Attendees will be able to see results from the latest research and development and learn:
- Why static memory hierarchies leave so much performance on the floor.
- What is a fully autonomous storage hierarchy and how does it automatically adapt to changing application workloads?
- The efficiency, QoS, performance SLAs/SLOs and cost tradeoffs that fully autonomous caches and hierarchies juggle.
This is a deep-dive into the challenges that have plagued the storage industry for decades, and how the Magnition team is innovating how our customers develop their storage technologies using the Magnition platforms.
Software-Defined Performance Engineering
In mechanical engineering, CAD has enabled engineers, architects, and construction to create fully-featured designs so that they can visualize the construction which enables the development, modification, and optimization of the design process.
Why is this missing from the world of performance engineering? Until now, it has been seen as an intractable problem to build for the exponential difficulty of complex storage and memory hierarchies. That’s no longer the case.
Join our session to learn about the engineering behind StorageLab and how it allows end-to-end storage architecture performance engineering, in real-time.
The Power of Innovation
We continue to explore where the industry is leading and how to empower performance engineers through active platforms as well as defining the standards for future development. This opportunity to present among our peers at SNIA SDC is both an honor and a privilege, and one that we are excited to share with all of our Magnition community.
To register for the event, visit the SNIA SDC website and make sure to share your feedback with us on our sessions.
Thank you to the SNIA community for the continued work being done in both technology and people enablement. The future of storage is autonomous, and we are proud to be carving the path together.
