We’re blogging live from the Intel Data-Centric Innovation Day April 2, 2019 in San Francisco!
The industry is holding its breath. Will 2019 be the year that Intel and the software ecosystem release a compelling storage-class memory stack?
I don’t often travel to industry events, but next week I will be joining Tom Hollingsworth and the Field Day delegates for Mobility Field Day Exclusive at Aruba Atmosphere 2019. Even though Las Vegas is not one of my favorite cities, I am really looking forward to it. One session that looks to be a highlight for me is “Experience the Power of HER”!
Although infrastructure is beginning to disappear behind an API for use by development and systems teams alike, there is still a team or even a single person behind that API ensuring that operations are smooth and transparent for those who consume said infrastructure. Those individuals or teams are well served by new tools for old problems.
RSA 2019 is coming up fast! Tom Hollingsworth takes a quick look at why RSA is so important as well as understanding some of the areas of security that are in focus this year and who you should be talking to in order to learn more about them.
Tech marketing duo John Nicholson and Nigel Hickey of VMware presented at Tech Field Day and covered the life of a virtualization admin, all the way from day 0 through day 365 including issues of patching, support, and scaling.
Security is a complicated thing to deal with in the modern world. What we need now more than anything is education about what we face. Tom Hollingsworth takes a look at some of the things that impact our secure world and an upcoming event that can shed some light on how to face those challenges.
AWS re:Invent is right around the corner and I will be attending my first event as a member of the Gestalt IT team. Believe it or not, this will also be my first trip to re:Invent, so I reached out to my friends in the community for their advice on how to tackle this monstrosity of a conference.
NetApp HCI was never “hyperconverged infrastructure” in the classic sense, but that never mattered. HCI customers would be well-served by the product, and the company is marketing and developing it in a way that is consistent with what customers are coming to expect. As customers move to converged and cloud solutions, NetApp wants to make sure they can keep them in the fold.
NetApp is in a unique position to integrate legacy, hybrid, and cloud storage, announcing their “Data Fabric” vision a few years back. Until NetApp Insight 2018, this all seemed like so much marketecture or vaporware. But the company is starting to make it happen, with real data services, orchestration, and management solutions coming to market.
