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. Luckily I was just playing around with some […]

How I Automated my Smart Home with Apple HomeKit and Raspberry Pi

Nowadays when it comes to home automation, the possibilities are practically endless, and virtually every device in a home can be connected and automated with a little bit of patience and some extra money to spend. There are proprietary and open-source platforms and accessories to choose from and deciding on how to go about automating […]

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 […]

Datrium 4.0 – Welcome to The Cloud DVX! BaaS, CloudView and RBA

Datrium announcements are often characterized by technology improvements as an evolution of the shipping platform. However, we are on a journey to deliver the best practical solutions that bridge the operational gaps between on-premise and public clouds, moving organizations to a world where the underlying nuts and bolts are not relevant to achieving the best […]

Is Datrium the Best Platform Ever for Oracle RAC?

Open Convergence and The Hottest Startup in Silicon Valley on SiliconAngle VMworld ’17 Last week Datrium announced (here) a partnership with Oracle and the support for Oracle RAC (Real Application Clusters). As part of the announcement, we stated that the main reasons for running RAC on Datrium are: Cloning, Snapshots, and Replication are fast and […]

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 […]

Datrium Audited as the Highest I Omark Benchmark Result in History – Mind-Blowing 10X!

“Datrium is the most scalable, fastest and lower latency storage solution (converged or not) on the market, beyond doubt.” We already knew that our solution is really competent, but there’s nothing like a 3rd party audited benchmark to convince even the most suspicious greybeards. The results are mind-blowing! In partnership with Dell and IOmark.org, we […]

Datrium 3.1 Features Overview (Beyond Marketing)

Three months ago we released the 3.0 version of our software (here) and announced a boatload of new features, including Red Hat and CentOS virtualization support, Containers Persistent Volumes, and an incredible 18 Million IOPS and 8 GB/s random write throughput. Then last month we announced Oracle RAC (here) with support for vSphere multi-writer VMDKs. […]

Disaster Recovery Seeding is a Pain!

Learning new technology is exciting, and I recently came across a Datrium feature that I believe no one else in primary storage delivers today. It is solving a cumbersome problem for organizations with large amounts of data that need to be seeded for disaster recovery purposes. Seeding DR datacenters can be an arduous and lengthy […]

Cache – The Datrium DVX Worst Case is Someone Else’s Best Case

A couple of times I have been asked about caching performance with Datrium DVX. It’s intuitive for people without an understanding of the technology to think that DVX performance is contingent entirely on the host cache and if nodes go down the caches would have to be rewarmed, or a full cache integrity checks would […]

Datrium 3.0 – Surviving all Host SSD failures!

I recently wrote about the new Datrium 3.0 release with blogs here and here, including the support for Red Hat Virtualization and mind-boggling performance numbers. However, during my writing, I forgot to include a new and critical feature that adds enhanced resiliency to the platform and protect the applications even is the last local flash device fails. […]

Datrium 3.0 Features Overview (Beyond Marketing) – Part 2

Last month Datrium announced the first part of the DVX 3.0 payload and I blogged here; and today we are announcing the second part. In the first announcement, Datrium took us where no HCI vendor has been before, offering not only a multi-hypervisor platform (VMware vSphere, RedHat Virtualization and Open-source KVM on CentOS hosts), but […]

Looking for the silver bullet that’s not there? My (and Datrium) response to the Data Locality debacle

Recently there’s been an exchange between industry luminaries on data reduction, data locality, and data protection. Howard Marks wrote a thoughtful piece <here> that expands on VSAN’s approach to data locality. Josh Odgers, the brilliant blogger now at Nutanix, responded with some notes <here> that in my opinion struggled to close the issue. They both […]
