Netapp Technology Forum Bavaria

 

Hello everbody,

last week on Thursday I attended a very nice event in the WWK – Arena in Augsburg. The host was Netapp and a lot of topics in form of presentations were covered. In addition I met a lot of sympathetic people.
I participated in various sessions and I listed the key facts of my favourites below:

 

Hardware and ONTAP 9.2

  • 32Gbit Fibrechannel SAN
  • 40 Gbit with 4x10Gbit break out connection
  • Hotplug Storage Controller – adding more performance – live
  • New ONTAP long term support release Modell -LTS (up to five years) and non LTS versions
  • NVE – Netapp volume encryption
  • Efficiency features
    • Aggregate (former volume) inline deduplication
    • Replication ( remote site needs more storage if inline data efficiency features are not supported )
    • Data efficiency features performance impact <10%
    • Opportunistic in nature – adaptive dedup
  • Fabric pool -> Capacity Tier -> Public or private cloud
  • QoS features in SAN
    • Min – max throughput per LUN
    • IOPs per LUN
    • Just in SAN

DevOps and Container

  • Concepts of app operation and software development
  • Standardize – consolidate – virtualize – automate – orchestrate
  • Digital innovation and transformation
  • DevOps:
    • Plan -> Develop -> Release -> Monitor -> Repeat
    • OSIMM
  • Non dynamic historic concepts replaced
  • For example: Apple release cycle – just a small part of users impacted
  • API SDK REST – Integration of common tools
  • Software defined infrastructure – environmental snapshots
  • DevOps as process of operation and development of infrastructures
  • New Job holders like “Site reliability engineer” (Google)
    • >50% Infrastructure
    • Predominant app developer
  • Container – differences to the traditional way (monolithic applications)
    • Micro services
    • Meshed over REST
    • IP based
    • Sufficient performance available nowadays
    • Can be upgraded independent
  • Concept of load balancing a.k.a horizontal scaling
  • For example: Google search engine
  • Containers are not virtual machines
  • Data storage out of the container
  • Container orchestration:
    • Kubernetes ‘k8s’
    • Dockerswarm
    • Mesos
  • Dynamic vs. persistent provisioning

GDPR – General data protection Regulation

 

  • GDPR called EU-DSGVO in Germany
  • Replaces the German “Datenschutzgesetz”
  • Affects every company which handles European personalised data or does Business with European companies
  • Will come into force on 25.05.2018
  • Save Harbour -> Privacy Shield -> GDPR
  • Company’s need additional personnel which are responsible – data protection Officer – privacy officer
  • Punishment for data leakage: up to 4% of yearly revenues or 20 million euros
  • Authorities must be informed within 72h
  • Everybody has the right to be forgotten
  • Data lineage
  • Physical location of the data must be documented
  • Data migration must be possible from one to another provider ( standardized file format, machine readable)
  • Concept of pseudonymization will be important
  • Encrypted data breach may not necessarily be reported to authorities
  • Code of conduct and certifications
  • Usage of hardening guides
