Following an announcement from StorONE, Technologist, Max Mortillaro, examines the All-Flash Array.next (AFAn), which uses Intel® Optane™ Technology as storage, not as a cache. This is post 1 of a 3-part Tech Talk series covering in-depth product architecture, performance, and data services.
One of the great strengths of Pure Storage has been their operating system, Purity. After participating in the Pure Storage Showcase, panelist, Max Mortillaro believes we are witnessing the logical conclusion of the Compuverde purchase by the integration of file services in Purity 6. Deploying file services across the entire portfolio was a necessity for Pure Storage; a necessity well understood, and the reason why Compuverde was acquired.
This Showcase, Introduction to FlashArray™ File Services, is presented by Alan Driscoll, Product Manager for FlashArray File Services at Pure Storage, and James Gallegos, FlashArray™ Product Marketer at Pure Storage. The Gestalt IT Showcase is an interactive conversation featuring a company subject matter expert and a panel of independent, technical IT influencers.

Enterprise AI seems to be a buzzword we are having trouble escaping. Is it following us, or just getting smart enough to know the paths we tread to shake it? The roundtable faces this pursuer and decides if we should take away its boastful title, call it something else, or if we have crossed the threshold far enough for it to lay claim to its moniker. Is Enterprise AI a bunch of BS? 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.

With DirectFlash Fabric, Pure Storage not only addresses the oxymoron of delivering simple and fast direct access storage with enterprise-class features. It also does so without forcing its customers to purchase a new storage array. Max Mortillaro looks at why the NVMe over Fabrics revolution is marching on.
The roundtable discusses if data locality is important to storage administrators anymore. They discuss why it might matter for technological, regulatory, and organizational needs, and how those needs have changed over time.
