I’ve been keen on rack-scale composable infrastructure for years. Decades even. But it’s only recently that we’ve had the technology to make it happen.

That’s what Liqid is promising with their latest announcements.
Ahhh the sweet smell of anticipation and diminishing credit score can only mean that the holiday shopping season is upon us again. Gift giving for the IT professional in your life can be stressful at any time of the year. So our crack staff at Gestalt IT has put together a holiday gift guide to make your buying decisions just a little bit easier. This year, we’ve organized the guide according to the different verticals we cover on the site: Cloud, Mobility, Networking, Server(ish), and Storage. Never fear, we’ve got gifts for all budgets. Without further ado, here’s the 2017 Gestalt IT Holiday Gift Guide!

But for their push into petabyte flash capacity, Intel seems to have rethought the rules a bit. Instead of cramming more flash onto a traditional form factor, Intel has put flash into a form factor specifically designed for the data center.
The Tech Field Day team has a full roster of events for 2017. They will host two main events, starting in Austin from February 1st-3rd. The second comes on September 27th-29th in Silicon Valley.

In 2017, Gestalt IT presents three Storage Field Day events, bringing together our independent delegates with industry-leading companies. The first will be held March 8-10 in Silicon Valley, followed by June 14-16 in Denver, and November 8-10 in Silicon Valley. Video from all of our events is live-streamed for anyone to view, and comprehensive recordings are posted and shared for later consumption or review.
