Stephen Foskett spoke with Cody Hosterman and Anthony Ferrario from Pure Storage to find out how the company is meaningfully integrating VVols support into FlashArray, and why it’s taken some time for the industry to adopt the technology.
Service mesh and automation featured heavily in Future:NET 2018 presentations. Ed Horley was able to attend them, and shares his thoughts in this post.
Persistent storage for containers is not considered a solved problem. Stephen Foskett spoke with Pure Storage’s Sandeep Singh and Anthony Ferrario about the issue. They discussed why the Pure Service Orchestrator provides cloud-native APIs to give developers access to a sophisticated storage backend without needed to be a storage admin.
MPLS is a venerable technology that has been around for a long time. SD-WAN is a new technology that is reducing the need for dedicated MPLS circuits. But will SD-WAN mean the end of MPLS? Tom Hollingsworth takes a look at this protocol and analyzes if there’s still a place for MPLS in this world.
Ned Bellavance and Stephen Foskett look at the current cloud storage landscape. Making sense of it can be a daunting task, even when just looking at Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. It can be tough to make a true comparison across cloud when considering cost, performance, and reliability. How does this cacophony of choice come into play in a multi-cloud world?
A massive gap exists between the new world of DevOps and traditional enterprise IT. DevOps is predicated on rapid, iterative deployment, whereas enterprise IT typically works on a traditional waterfall process. Changes are made in massive batches and the underlying infrastructure is inflexible and heterogeneous. The new wave of DevOps in IT doesn’t want to […]
This is post 9 of 12 in the series “Pure Storage 2018 Tech Talks” In a recent post, I wrote extensively about the integrations of VVols, and the other discrete components of VASA into the Pure Storage architecture. We’ll all be very interested in seeing more about this at VMworld 2018 in Las Vegas. Compelling […]
Matt Leib takes a look at what he learned from this year’s Flash Memory Summit. What stood out were the importance of NVMe scalability, as well as the emergence of non-volatile persistent memory. Of note, this year saw the first storage array to use NVMe protocol and hardware across the board, Pure Storage’s FlashArray//X.
What we call networking has changed radically in the past few years. The amount of intelligence in the network is helping us create new software and platforms to manage everything properly. John Herbert takes a look at Cisco Network Assurance Engine and asks if you’ve changed your ways of thinking about doing networking in this day and age.
Matt Leib takes a look at how Pure Storage has engineered their storage arrays to fully realize the promise of solid state disk. He also looks at the features of the Purity operating system on the arrays, and their robust VMware integrations.
