LISA 2012 Data Storage Day
Wednesday, December 12, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (PST)
Data Storage Day, co-located with the LISA Conference, takes place on December 12, 2012 in San Diego, CA. It is a free one-day event focused on the latest trends in data storage technologies. The LISA Conference is sponsored by USENIX in cooperation with LOPSA.
About LISA and Data Storage Day: The annual LISA Conference is the meeting place of choice for system and network administrators and engineers; it is the crossroads of Web operations, DevOps, enterprise computing, educational computing, and research computing. The conference serves as a venue for a lively, diverse, and rich mix of technologists of all specialties and levels of expertise.
Data Storage Day is a one-day co-located workshop at the LISA Conference, which includes a series of lectures, a free pass to the LISA vendor exhibition, the LISA happy hour, and access to the conference's evening events.

Storage Virtualization and the Evolution of Storage Networking
The Storage I/O Path has been evolving quite rapidly in the last few years. New layers are popping up in the forms of inline network devices, hypervisors, and object-based storage models. Meanwhile, traditional layers like logical volume managers and RAID arrays are collapsing into all-in-one file systems. This lecture sets the stage for the remaining 3 talks at LISA Data Storage Day. It provides the foundation for understanding the various ways to integrate solid state storage, tiering and life cycle management, and data protection into one's existing storage environment.
Application and File System Acceleration with Solid State Storage
This lecture focuses on practical approaches for integrating SSD technology into your existing storage infrastructure. We explore different insertion points in the storage I/O path, and reveal a variety of methods for accelerating databases, email systems, virtualization platforms, content repositories, local file systems and network file systems (NAS).

A Crash Course on Object-based Storage: Massive Scalability, Cloud Stores, Deduplication, and Even Tape
Object-based storage does not describe any one technology or type of solution. Rather, is a generic term that describes an approach to addressing and manipulating discrete units of storage. Object-based storage is essential for deduplication, self-healing, massive scalability, geographic distribution, caching, tiering, etc. This session explains the key principles of object-based storage and provides examples and technologies based on those principles.
Designing and Optimizing Enterprise Backup Systems
Even the best of the enterprise software vendors are not able to deliver comprehensive data protection under a single pain of glass. For most organizations, the winning data protection strategy is likely to involve different product types, often from different vendors. The toolbox includes products such as: enterprise backup software, disk backup appliances, deduplication hardware and software, tape systems, archive managers, hypervisor backup software, cloud solutions, application-specific backup software, snapshots inside the storage devices, etc. This seminar reveals ways of identifying the right tool for the job and devising a sustainable and scalable backup strategy.
