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.

Tipping IT past the all-flash inflection point with hyperconvergence

HP Enterprise

For decades, traditional storage (or disk storage) worked well for IT teams, giving them the high capacity they needed. But, as data storage space becomes more important every year, capacity alone is no longer enough. IT teams often face high latency issues and drive failures with the traditional storage solutions – as seen by the […]

Throughout the last couple of years, I have published multiple, so-called ultimate cheat sheets around the FMA, Citrix printing, and application layering. But also around IoT networking and IOPS in general, for example. Looking through my website statistics I can see that these articles or small e-books are by far the most popular, even the […]
