In his next post in this series, Joep Piscaer explains cloud-native needs object-based storage and how Pure Storage’s FlashBlade can help. With FlashBlade, the industry’s first unified fast file and object storage platform, which supports NFS and S3-compliance object storage in a single array, managing storage performance is much easier, as the system allows scale-out performance for both file-based and object-based storage with the same array.
In this Tech Talk, Joep Piscaer explores Pure Storage’s FlashBlade Purity 3.0 and how it works. With the FlashBlade’s distributed scale-out architecture, the load is spread across all blades in the cluster, maximizing performance. Pure Storage is helping operators manage the lifecycle of not just the data, but the storage platform itself, too.
At Cisco Live Europe 2020, Gestalt IT’s Joep Piscaer was joined by Patrick Smith, Field CTO for Pure Storage. They discussed how Europe and the EMEA region are driving Pure Storage’s product and company direction, and how that affects products like FlashStack.
As Joep Piscaer noted, something big happened over at Docker last week. This was undoubtedly one deal in two transactions, but it’s still a very interesting move. And dare I say an important one? Docker needs to survive. The core IP is just too valuable and widespread. Yet the company hasn’t been able to get “over the hump” in the enterprise market.
This week in Gestalt News, we were live from Pure Accelerate for the Gestalt IT Rundown and Joep Piscaer considered the unconscious choice for multi-cloud. Plus articles on stopping security silos, a VMworld Cloud roundtable discussion, the latest on IBM data protection, and more!
Ownership of application and cloud architecture is constantly shifting and is becoming a shared responsibility of business, operations, developers, architects, and security. If you don’t guide the process of cloud consumption within your organization, you’ll end up with a disjointed multi-cloud. In other words: many different disconnected islands, each with incomplete, badly implemented, unaudited security and compliance standards.
Imagine you are migrating applications from on-premises to the cloud, and maybe even refactoring applications and functionality into cloud-native microservices. How do you keep tabs on performance, key operational telemetry and business metrics when many parts of the metaphorical moving train are changed and replaced? Joep Piscaer looks at what NETSCOUT offers to provide end-to-end visibility across the cloud and on-prem.
No matter if your applications run on-prem or in the cloud; no matter if it’s a microservice or monolith; no matter if it runs physical, virtual or containerized – customer satisfaction is key for businesses. In this piece, Joep Piscaer looks at how tools like NETSCOUT’s vSTREAM can help gather the telemetry data needed to provide visibility into IT systems, and ultimately keep customers happy.
Moderator Stephen Foskett poses a completely non-controversial question: is DevOps a load of crap? Does DevOps just turn into NoOps? What are these darn kids doing with our infrastructure? The roundtable debates all these questions and more.
If hype was something that had mass, containers would affect the tides. In this State of the Industry, we look at the state of container storage. Various companies will tell you it’s broken. We’ve consulted with experts to find out what the specific issues are, and what the future will look like.
