Disaster Recovery Seeding is a Pain!

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 […]

What’s Design Thinking got to do with Enterprise Storage?

…and why Datrium has no knobs or dials. Design Thinking is the idea that products and interfaces should be designed around the needs of the people who will be using them. However, it is often technical capabilities or market opportunities that either push or pull the development process. In the case of enterprise software, the […]

A feature that has been driving many interesting conversations with customers is the new Blanket Encryption. First, let’s rewind a bit. (If you only want to find out about the product features and skip my long-winded […]

In the Hybrid Cloud, datasets must follow applications, not the other way around… and many are doing it wrong

The definition of Hybrid Cloud may differ by implementation type or vendor, but a common description is that a Hybrid Cloud connects two discrete computing platforms sharing the ability to execute and burst the same set of applications and workloads. These disparate computing platforms typically provide different consumption models (buy vs. rent) that should be […]
