Pure Storage Spotlight: In this episode, we are taking on enterprise cloud architecture, and specifically, the move towards disaggregated infrastructure. As enterprises move towards cloud architecture, a lot of companies are jumping in. Software solutions like VMware Cloud Foundation, for instance, drive the ability of enterprises to build a hybrid cloud. But there has been a lot of talk about architecture as well. The industry has seen a lot of changes in the last several years. There was a move towards converged, then hyperconverged, and now disaggregated architecture offers benefits for an optimized hybrid cloud (for example, Pure Storage and Cisco’s FlashStack). Is disaggregated the right move?
Continuing our effort to reconcile the perspective of enterprise IT nerds with the social upheaval happening all around us, the On-Premise IT Roundtable Podcast guests discuss the concept of a single source of truth. In IT analytics, we believe that one system or application has “truth” even if others disagree. Is this true of the wider world as well? What is the difference between data, fact, and truth and how can we leverage this concept to bring justice to the world?
Technical people love clarity, facts, transparency, and data, but the world outside the datacenter is anything but. How can we in tech apply ourselves and our experience to promote justice and transparency in the real world? Why don’t governments, media, and the population at large know the facts about crises like the Coronavirus pandemic and the racial justice issues that are shaking the United States and the world? And what can we do to help improve the situation?
Pure Storage Spotlight: Orchestration is almost synonymous with containers nowadays. One popular opinion is that maybe the reason enterprises haven’t adopted containers quickly is that people are hungry for a way to orchestrate containers that fits into their overall environment. Is this the reason why containers have yet to be widely adopted? Follow this discussion, featuring Jon Owings – Principal Solution Architect at Pure Storage, and Cormac Hogan – Director and Chief Technologist at VMware, and decide for yourself.
Tune in for all the latest announcement from Cisco Live US 2020! Tom Hollingsworth and Stephen Foskett will be covering Chuck Robbins’ keynote along with all the great discussions being started from this year’s Cisco Live!
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.
Lots of us are experiencing the joy of working from home right now and many people are also experiencing the fun of virtual events. How are these events working?
A quick non-official poll:
“I am never leaving my house again!”
“I despise virtual conferences.”
“An in-person interaction can’t bring more to the table than my computer screen and I can bring (to the kitchen table).”
“Events are a thing of the past and are being replaced with the almighty virtual option.”
Who’s right? Join us as we’ll discuss the various ways in which we can weigh a virtual vs in-person event, and why there are some things that just can’t be replaced.
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.
