By J Maestre,
The World’s Strongest Technologist, HP Enterprise Solutions & Architectures Team  @3PARStrong   A common theme emerges from flash startups when discussing other, more established storage platforms:                  “Storage Vendor ‘ABC’ is a legacy storage array retro-fitted with flash but not built for it.” &nb...

Direct Attach Fiber Channel with the EMC VNXe3200 (Justin's IT Blog)

The demo box that I have from EMC does not have the fiber channel mez card in it, but last week I did get a chance to configure a VNXe3200 with direct attached fiber channel hosts for the first time (customer install). I must say that the process was stupid simple. Unfortunately I was not […]

Are You Drinking Your Own DevOps Kool-Aid? (The Virtualization Practice)

I’ll be the first to admit that embracing the DevOps movement can be… Read more → Are You Drinking Your Own DevOps Kool-Aid?|The Virtualization Pr...

Is Computer Data Storage Complex? It Depends (StorageIOblog)

I often get asked, or, told that computer data storage is complex with so many options to choose from, apples to oranges comparison among other things.

What does server storage I/O scaling mean to you? (StorageIOblog)

Often I hear people talk about scaling only in the context of space capacity. However there are aspects including performance, availability as well as scaling-up or scaling-out. Scaling from application workloads perspectives include four main group themes which are performance, availability, capacity and economics (as well as energy).

Lenovo ThinkServer TD340 StorageIO lab Review (StorageIOblog)

This StorageIOlab review looks at the Lenovo ThinkServer TD340 Tower Server which besides having a larger model number than the TS140, it also has a lot more capabilities (server compute, mem...

Cloud Trifecta! (Virtual Geek)

Big news today – Cloudscaling, Maginatics, Spanning join the EMC family.   What’s the story behind each of these? I’m going to hit each of these in a seperate post to avoid making you all suffer more than usual from “Chad Verbose Blog Syndrome” (CVBS can cause serious eye-bleeding). There is a theme that links these: we are dead serious about all forms of cloud models, and ...

Why Cloudscaling, and why now? (Virtual Geek)

Welcome to my Cloudscaling brothers and sisters?  So – this post will be about “Why Cloudscaling” and “Why now?”. Clearly – there is a real and growing model where customers are looking at different ways of building clouds.   I don’t entirely agree with all the points Randy Bias’ post here (http://www.cloudscaling.com/blog/cloud-computing/an-openstack-dream-team/)...

Why Maginatics, why now? (Virtual Geek)

Answer for this one is simpler than the Cloudscaling one.   We’ve been watching the space of “storage things that use object storage” closely for a while.  What’s clear is that it’s very hard to make “cloud tier” a product (it seems to be a very important “feature”) and it seems hard to make “cloud gateway” a company (it seems to be a very important “prod...

Why Spanning? Why now? (Virtual Geek)

Again, like Maginatics, more patently obvious than Cloudscaling. The space of “Cloud Backup” is very interesting (and we have a lot of experience – remember, Mozy is an EMC company!)   People initially think that “backup to Cloud” is an “obvious use case”. This is patently wrong. It’s not that there aren’t cases for backup to cloud.   The assumption peopl...
