Flash Memory Summit, Western Digital Keynote Live Website


03:20PM EDT – Second Keynote for us: Western Digital

03:20PM EDT – These keynotes are thick and fast

03:20PM EDT – Unfortunately they turned the lights on which makes photos of the screens pretty bad

03:21PM EDT – I think someone leaned on the switch and no-one is senior enough to tell someone to turn them off

03:21PM EDT – Talk is called ‘The Future of Data Infrastructure’

03:22PM EDT – Phil Bullinger

03:22PM EDT – SVP and GM of Datacenter Systems

03:24PM EDT – Economy is becoming data driven

03:26PM EDT – Moving from records, to communications, to efficiency, to currency

03:26PM EDT – Developed in richness and value

03:26PM EDT – Data is two main things: Big Data and Fast Data

03:26PM EDT – Not just buzzwords, but actual workloads

03:27PM EDT – This is driving a lot of the data processing and infrastructure

03:27PM EDT – The final word is precision

03:28PM EDT – Data Interaction has changed, to create, deliver, transform, and access

03:29PM EDT – Data is pooled and shared by multiple applications

03:29PM EDT – Dynamic workloads are increasing

03:30PM EDT – 45% of compute resources are unused, but 70% report inefficiencies in their storage resources

03:31PM EDT – Demands are around data infrastructure: Scalability, Efficiency, Agility, Performance

03:31PM EDT – Critical to raise efficiency in the datacenter

03:33PM EDT – The future is the Data Infrastructre Revolution

03:34PM EDT – Moving from Converged infrastructure to Composable Infrastructure

03:35PM EDT – Disaggregated compute and storage resources to scale with requirements

03:35PM EDT – Taking the next tep is key

03:36PM EDT – Software infrastructures allows for indepdent resources tiers

03:36PM EDT – Erases the physicality of the barriers between resources

03:36PM EDT – By relying on a fabric environment

03:37PM EDT – ‘A very robust solution’

03:37PM EDT – The net takeaway, WD believes that economic advantages are very real

03:37PM EDT – ~50% savings in CapEX, 40% lower TCO verse hyperconverged

03:38PM EDT – WD’s vision is built on four pillars: Open Standards, Scalable, Disaggregated, Extensible

03:38PM EDT – Define and refine both software APIs and hardware

03:39PM EDT – Opening up the hardware form factor

03:40PM EDT – Get to a model where resources are physically separate for scalability

03:41PM EDT – systems are composed between a data fabric and a memory fabric

03:41PM EDT – peers come together, no discrete systems

03:41PM EDT – The new ‘fabric’ device

03:42PM EDT – Controllers speak to a network, not to a host

03:42PM EDT – Fabric-focused systems

03:42PM EDT – Fabric endpoints should be simple devices, and peers of each other

03:43PM EDT – Mix and match

03:44PM EDT – Today introducing OpenFLEX

03:44PM EDThttps://www.anandtech.com/show/13180/western-digital-announces-openflex-architecture-and-nvmeof-storage-devices

03:44PM EDT – A new range of fabric devices

03:45PM EDT – F3000 device and E3000 enclosure – high perf, low latency for fast data: AI, real time analytics, IoT

03:45PM EDT – D3000 Fabric Device: High capacity for big data, batch analytics, machine learning, predictive modeling

03:46PM EDT – Demonstrated on the show floor at the show

03:46PM EDT – ‘Don’t think about these as a JBOD’

03:46PM EDT – Openflex management API

03:46PM EDT – New API called Kingfish

03:47PM EDT – orchestrating fabric devices as fabric devices

03:47PM EDT – Working with industry to make this an open API to create simplicity at scale

03:47PM EDT – A critical part of the strategy

03:48PM EDT – WD creating their own orchestration layer software

03:48PM EDT – Creating new instances in seconds, optimizing to the unique needs of an application or workload. Built on kingfish

03:49PM EDT – WD OpenFlex: ‘committed to an open approach, positioned to accelerate market adoption’

03:49PM EDT – Demos at booth 207

03:50PM EDT – That’s a wrap!
