    Networking for the Cloud Era—Simplified Cloud Connectivity with SD-WAN
    10:10 - 10:50

    10 years ago, Amazon opened up its cloud computing platform to the world, and dramatically changed the way organisations consume compute and storage. Networking hasn’t kept up with these changes, and unfortunately, even with 38 different vendors now claiming to offer software-defined networking, a lot of these are still heavily reliant on the CLI, and cloud integration is cumbersome at best. Securing and interacting with cloud providers – and even interconnecting multiple services, from different platforms –  is becoming more critical. Many organisations are adopting a ‘cloud-first’ strategy. In the session, we’ll demonstrate an easier way of extending the enterprise network into the cloud.
    • How to painlessly and securely integrate networking and WAN optimisation with IaaS platforms and how to interconnect services from different IaaS platforms
    • How to integrate cloud-based security without touching a router or firewall
    • How to escape the CLI

    If you could turn back time – a new security focused data management architecture
    12:20 - 13:00

    Introduce Reduxio Systems and the basic key idea of Nir Peleg, co-founder and basic architect of Reduxio’s technology.  His idea was that the current commonly used metadata-structures did not cope well with the storage innovations of the last 20 years.  Nir designed a completely new metadata-architecture, where the metadata resides in a key-value database apart from the actual data.  Most actions will happen in this database without the need for moving data, e.g. cloning or making a new volume is just a quick database operation.  Also some additional metadata tags were added, e.g. time.  Every block that is written into the system gets a timing tag.
    IT Pro Takeaways:
    • Why Reduxio will be important in the modern enterprise
    • Making snapshots obsolete
    • Smart real-time Multi-Tiering
    • Remote replication to any iSCSI target.
