Is Datrium HCI or Not? A duality dilemma. If you view HCI as being the physical […]

Maslow’s Hierarchy Of Healthcare IT Infrastructure

The Maslow Hierarchy of Needs describes a series of universal needs as motivators for human behaviors. From a patient experience perspective that would include things like, easy access to healthcare services, and a focus on staying patient-centered. However, nowadays healthcare delivery-of-care is hugely dependant on digital systems such as Electronic Medical Records and Picture Archiving […]

The Single reason why HCI vendors do Not Like to provide Best-in-Class Protection for your Data

It makes HCI expensive and not cost competitive! Now that we got that out of the way let me explain. It is not that HCI solutions cannot provide higher levels of availability, most of them do, but vendors frequently steer customers to a resiliency factor that makes them look cost-effective – makes them look good […]

PostgreSQL Benchmark on Datrium – 4.3 Million TPS with 1 GB RAM – and some Frustration!

One thing was clear to me – backup is equivalent to insurance. It is a tool that is there for […]

We built the Best Storage Platform in the World. Now, 2018 comes down to Business Execution

In the book Built to Last, Jim Collins and Jerry Porras beautifully describe that ‘building a visionary company requires one percent vision and 99 percent alignment‘. Business fallacies more often than not disrupt even the most successful companies with the most advanced and visionary products. Business execution is possibly more important than actually having a […]

Datrium DVX makes EC2 and HCI seem like Complex Old Systems

While setting up couple AWS EC2 instances a few days ago, I noticed that despite the higher level abstraction and orchestration provided by cloud services I still needed to understand quite a lot about application behavior to properly stand-up a solution that would cater for my business.

VDI Calculator v7.4 Update

This is a minor update to the VDI Calculator, just adding capability and support for Intel Xeon processors with 20 cores. I’m adding that mostly because Datrium now has a Compute Node (CN) that supports Intel Xeon Gold 6148, 20 cores/socket, 2.4GHz (specs). That said this new option provides support for any hardware from any vendor supporting 20 core […]

Data Integrity Should Be Taken Very Seriously

By now it is pretty clear that Datrium is one of the only Convergence and/or Storage vendors that has been entirely open about performance, not hiding numbers or gaming performance benchmarks. Check out this article by Ganesh and Dhazi on our real performance numbers… What Separates The Storage Industry’s Men From Boys? Random Writes! or […]
