It’s not the first time I cover the topic of data management. In the past, I covered on my blog some of the challenges encountered with data management, specifically the ability (and necessity) to properly define what is the scope of data management. A Multiverse of Data Management Realities There
Storage Field Day 18 – Fifty Shades of Disclosure
I’m just back from Storage Field Day 18 where we had an a very dense agenda of sessions with multiple vendors. A lot of posts will hopefully be coming out of this in the next days / weeks, but for now, a slightly different topic. Fifty Shades of Disclosure I
Storage Field Day 18 – It’s As Intense As Storage Field Day Gets
There are some industry events where we go with a bit of apprehension and the fear of catching “keynote measles”. But then, there are also those events that we’re excited about, that start looking more like a tradition and family reunion than a technology event. Storage Field Day, brought to
Forward Networks: Bringing Sanity To A Network Near You
Networking isn’t exactly my cup of ristretto. When I’m invited to events such as Cisco Live, I’m usually the quiet guy (unless it comes to storage or cloud) in the room trying to understand what the heck is being discussed. But once in a while, there’s a presentation outside of
Multicloud : the buzzword we’ll keep hearing in 2019?
IT is an industry where we’re hardly given a break. Last year’s bag of buzzwords is sill around and we are already getting hammered by new ones. Multicloud is one thing we’ll keep hearing during 2019, because apparently “it’s the next cool thing”(tm). Multicloud: What Are We Even Talking About?
Cisco HyperFlex 2019 Edition: Mixed Feelings
Update 18-Mar-19 – Please read this article with caution. Parts of it have been superseded due to clarifications received from Cisco and are kept only for historical reasons. The article containing the updates is available here. Sections in blue have had additional commentary following the highlighted text. Sections with incorrect
The Solid-State Memory Industry Will Be Exciting in 2019
January is the month of predictions in IT. While I do not have a crystal ball, I will not claim that 2019 will be the year of VDI or the year of Linux on desktops. Instead, I would rather like to focus on the Solid-State Memory industry. QLC 3D NAND
Should Cisco reinvent itself? Thoughts ahead of Cisco Live Europe 2019
2019 will mark my fourth Cisco Live Europe attendance in a row. A feat for a person like me who’s much estranged to the networking world. As strange as it may seem, Cisco Live Europe seems to one of the rare predictable events at this time of the year besides
Live at VMworld Europe 2018: An Update on VMware Strategy and Vision, or VMware is Cool Again
VMware has stuck around long enough to move from being an underdog into a major established player in the data center world. When companies grow, the added complexity can lead to a form of “corporate sclerosis”, where agility and the ability to always remain on the competitive edge start to
What future for Intel Optane?
I was privileged to attend a morning of presentations from the Intel Optane team last month (September 2018), straight at Intel headquarters while in the Silicon Valley. Here are my thoughts on Intel Optane, its future, and which use cases are relevant to this storage class. A difficult birth Intel
NetApp MAX Data: The Persistence of Memory, Revisited
If Salvador Dali was at our NetApp MAX Data Tech Field Day presentation, I’m sure he’d start painting melting NVDIMM modules or melting Optane modules. Excuse my nerdiness, though: have you ever heard of NetApp MAX Data? And what if I said Plexistor? Perhaps it will ring a bell to
NetApp Data Fabric: putting in practice the “Theory of Everything” for Data and Storage
I was at NetApp Insight 2018 in Las Vegas and had the opportunity to hear not only the general messaging during keynotes, but also get deep-dive on certain of the hot topics at NetApp. One of these was the NetApp Data Fabric, also known as NetApp Cloud Services. Some of
NetApp Insight 2018 – Hello Stranger, We Meet Again
If I had to name one major storage company that I have seldom written about, it has to be NetApp. Not that their solutions wouldn’t be appealing, but we’ve just been estranged work-wise. Rather, it’s been like these kind of platonic relationships where you never meet at the right moment
Komprise: Data Management Made Easy
Data management and secondary storage are all the rage these days. They have both been covered long & large by the most prominent industry analysts & research organizations. There are a growing number of solutions in this market which sometimes overlap. Both are still a widely debated topic in the
Computational Storage – TECHunplugged Industry Insights market research is now available!
The last couple weeks have been hectic: the summer season is well over, the school year start is at full speed and it’s also the return of conferencing season! If you’re a blog regular, you may have seen my post during the weekend about The Rise of Computational Storage. At
