Pure Storage Spotlight: Those of us who have been following storage and server architecture are pretty excited about NVMe and various things over fabrics. So far, it’s been a challenge to bring NVMe-oF into the enterprise datacenter. Does the release of vSphere 7 mean that this technology is finally ready for prime time? Follow the discussion and decide for yourself.
Simplification may sound great and improve efficiency, but it always with it an increase in risk. This is because by abstracting away the complexity, you’re also hiding potential faults in the system. The roundtable discusses if this is true, and if there’s a way to lose some of the geek knobs without creating a risky environment.
Join technologist, Christopher Kusek, as he discusses the evolution of virtualization, modern security, and microsegmentation.
If you’re not already familiar with Service Mesh, the following brief description by Christopher Kusek should help get you started.
At VMworld, I had the honor and privilege to participate in a roundtable discussion with some fellow visionaries of Cloud Architecture and we discussed the past, present, and future of Cloud Architecture and Infrastructure as we know it. This conversation highlighted a bright future for cloud, multi-cloud, security, and containers.
The future is bright, and for once, it’s clear and not blurred by the obfuscation and confusion of the network fog! We have really reached an apex in Virtual Infrastructure. We might be on the verge of securing our platforms regardless of where we choose to land our VMs, containers or whatever else we may be running.
Networking is coming! And Future:NET Is coming to San Francisco to celebrate its 4th Year! In this post, Christopher Kusek makes the case why this should be an event added to your IT roster. Future:NET stands out because presentations can come from anywhere within the IT stack from Developer, to Security or Network Admin to general practitioner IT Jack of all trades. He takes a look at what is on tap this year.
When I first saw the Aruba 8400 I was awestruck, surprised, actually legitimately excited! I know, I know it’s just a bunch of ports inside of a chassis, but that’s not all it was though. The 8400 brought something to the party which has been forlorn and forgotten in the systemic world of Network Engineering and Administration, and that is they realized the end-users of this product WERE Network Engineers and Administrators. But wait, what do I mean by that?
This is post 3 of 5 in the series “Viptela SD-WAN Tech Talk Spring 2016” The Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) market is a burgeoning one with technology largely built out of necessity due to the lack of agility of carriers to respond to our growing customer and business needs. Given what may seem […]
Christopher Kusek, Technology Evangelist comments: Wow, we’re finally here! Version 6.2 has arrived and woot is it a hoot! (That wasn’t intended to rhyme, but welcome to the party regardless! This blog post will be filled with lots of cool things, lots of announcements, and a commentary on the ‘ONE VSAN to Rule Them All’ […]
