Load DynamiX, the leader in storage infrastructure performance validation, and DeepStorage, a leading storage technology and advisory firm, will join together to discuss the real-world challenges when migrating to an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model and how storage performance is key to its success. The live webinar will air on Thursday, July 24 at 10 am PDT/1 pm EDT/5 pm GMT.
Public cloud providers like Amazon and Rackspace have demonstrated the advantages the IaaS model. However the public nature of these clouds makes it unacceptable to many IT organizations. Those seeking to deliver IaaS to their business units are building private clouds using tools from VMware and the OpenStack Project.
Storage industry veteran Howard Marx, who runs his own independent performance testing lab, Deep Storage, and contributes to Network Computing magazine, will discuss how many IaaS projects stall when storage performance fails to meet user’s expectations. IaaS often obscures the I/O characteristics of many applications from the IT department, making it difficult to match storage deployment decisions to workload requirements. Load DynamiX marketing vice president Len Rosenthal will then share customer examples on how storage workload modeling and performance validation can help assure storage performance and lower costs when undertaking IaaS projects.

As operational failure becomes more acceptable to discuss within the software industry, the necessity for holding constructive, actionable postmortems increases. But most of what we know about postmortems from "pop culture" isn't actually relevant for the software systems we work on and within. In his session at DevOps Summit, J. Paul Reed will look at postmortem pitfalls, techniques, and tools you'll be able to take back to your own environment so they will be able to lay the foundations for h...
