After participating in the Pure Storage Spotlight Podcast, Tech Blogger, Max Mortillaro, writes about Pure Storage’s FlashStack. Max believes FlashStack provides an enterprise-class experience with 6-nines availability, deep integrations with VMWare Cloud Foundation (including persistent storage orchestration for containers), automated data placement, and supports best-in-class VMware technologies, such as vVols and VAAI, promising customers the very best storage performance on VMware platforms.

In his next installment of this Riverbed Tech Talk series, Evan Mintzer describes his experience with Riverbed portal. Riverbed Portal can not only help the teams to see problems as they arise, but it can also allow them to see a little into the other teams’ views so they can better discuss when a performance issue arises.
In his next installment of this Riverbed Tech Talk series, A.J. Murray writes about Riverbed’s SD-WAN and the flexibility of the SteelConnect EX with the use of overlays. Take all the efficiencies you get with SD-WAN alone and then add it Riverbed’s WAN Optimization and you’ll have the leanest, most efficient, and secure WAN you’ve ever had!
In his next post in this StorONE Tech Talk series, Max Mortillaro writes about Optane in the post-cache era. Modern storage architectures such as StorONE AFAn understand how Optane and QLC work hand-in-hand. By using Optane as a storage tier and not as a cache, data is immediately written to Optane, is protected against media failures, and can reside there as long as there is space within that tier.
In his next post in this series, Joep Piscaer explains cloud-native needs object-based storage and how Pure Storage’s FlashBlade can help. With FlashBlade, the industry’s first unified fast file and object storage platform, which supports NFS and S3-compliance object storage in a single array, managing storage performance is much easier, as the system allows scale-out performance for both file-based and object-based storage with the same array.
Technologist, Max Mortillaro, writes about the need for speed and capacity with StorONE’s Flash Array.next (AFAn), which uses Intel® Optane™ Technology and QLC. This is post 2 of a 3-part Tech Talk series covering in-depth product architecture, performance, and data services.
IT Consultant, Chris Williams, examines Kubernetes and containers after participating in the Pure Storage Spotlight Podcast.
Technologist, Dan Frith, discusses the importance of using the right tool for the job when you’re tasked with protecting your organization’s data. With Druva inSync endpoint protection, you get backup, eDiscovery, data loss prevention, and compliance monitoring, all in the one package. When combined with centralized monitoring, mobile device management integration, and single sign-on support, Druva looks to be a pretty compelling option for laptop data protection.
In this Tech Talk, Joep Piscaer explores Pure Storage’s FlashBlade Purity 3.0 and how it works. With the FlashBlade’s distributed scale-out architecture, the load is spread across all blades in the cluster, maximizing performance. Pure Storage is helping operators manage the lifecycle of not just the data, but the storage platform itself, too.
Following his appearance in the Pure Storage Spotlight Podcast, Tech Blogger, Drew Conry-Murray, explores how storage vendors are embracing containers.
