Data Center Challenges and Technology Advances Revealed at Flash Memory Summit 2018

| DCIG, Flash Memory, Solid state storage Flash Memory SSD | No Comments

If you want to get waist-deep in the technologies that will impact the data centers of tomorrow, the Flash Memory Summit 2018 (FMS) held this week in Santa Clara is the place to do it. This is where the flash industry gets its geek on and everyone on the exhibit floor speaks bits and bytes. However, there is no better place to learn about advances in flash memory that are sure to show up in products in the very near future and drive further advances in data center infrastructure.

Orchestrated Backup IN the Cloud Arrives with HYCU for GCP

| Cloud, Data Protection, SaaS | No Comments

Companies are either moving or have moved to the cloud with backup TO the cloud being one of the primary ways they plan to get their data and applications into the cloud. But orchestrating the backup of their applications and data once they reside IN the cloud… well, that requires an entirely different set of tools with few, if any, backup providers yet offering features in their respective products that deliver on this requirement. That ends today with the introduction of HYCU for GCP (Google Cloud Platform).

Differentiating between High-end HCI and Standard HCI Architectures

| Converged Infrastructure, DCIG, Hyper-converged, Virtualization | No Comments

When organizations deploy HCI at scale (more than eight nodes in a single logical configuration), cracks in its architecture can begin to appear unless organizations carefully examine how well it scales. On the surface, high end and standard hyper-converged architectures deliver the same bene­fits. They each virtualize compute, memory, storage networking, and data stor­age in a simple to deploy and manage scale-out architecture. They support standard hypervisor platforms. They provide their own data protection solutions in the form of snap­shots and replication. In short, these two archi­tectures mirror each other in many ways. However, high-end and standard HCI solutions differ in functionality in ways that primarily surface in large virtualized deployments.
