This is post 13 of 14 in the series “Pure Storage 2018 Tech Talks” Pure Storage has recently made an interesting announcement about a new set of cloud products and services designed to help its customers to manage hybrid-cloud infrastructures. On one hand, there is Cloud Block Store based on Purity OS, the OS that […]
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.

Here’s your bi-weekly look at what’s happening in Networking:
* Ixia Works Out Its Network Trust Issues
* Enterprise Focused SD-WAN with Viptela
* HPE Discover Reactions

It did not paint a pretty picture for HPE’s future, relegating them to replying on a shrinking legacy server revenue stream, with an upcoming products already out of step with industry trends. I wrote a reaction hot take to it, asking if they […]
This week in Server News, the Gestalt IT team takes a look at EMC Isilon’s new Nitro all-flash array, considers the future of HPE and scale-out computing, and looks at Tim Miller’s post on DriveScale. We’re also reading Justin Warren’s post on automation and autonomy and considering Kubernetes and Mesos with Eric Wright.
The physical server market is already getting eaten by software, which is in turn being eaten away by the cloud. The market is racing from the metal to increasing layers of abstraction.

Generally speaking, HCI solutions are very good at serving “average” workloads but when the going gets tough, the tough get going… and hyperconvergence as we […]
