Yesterday, Dell EMC's Project Nautilus emerged as Dell EMC's Streaming Data Platform. I wrote this post based on the presentation we were given at #SFD19, and decided to keep the Project Nautilus name throughout my report. I love it when presenters tell us what world they are coming from, and tie our shared past to new products. Ted Schachter started his career at Tandem doing real-time proce...

Taming Unstructured Data A common thread discussed by almost every vendor we visited was the issue of taming unstructured data. Vendors are building products that their customers can use to turn massive amounts of unstructured data into information. They all told us that their customers are demanding intelligent insights that are available anytime accessible anywhere. The groups from Dell EMC S...

Tiger Technology Brings the Cloud to You

Disclaimer: I recently attended Storage Field Day 19. My flights, accommodation and other expenses were paid for by Tech Field Day.

Is storage still relevant?

Disclosure: I was invited by GestaltIT as a delegate to their Storage Field Day 19 event from Jan 22-24, 2020 in the Silicon Valley CA. My expenses, travel, accommodation and conference fees were covered by GestaltIT, the organizer. I was not obligated to blog or promote the vendors’ technologies. The content of this blog is of my own opinions and views. Is storage still relevant in today's cloud and serverless environments? At Storage Field Day 19 we spent several hours with Western Digital, and heard from ten different presenters. Did they show us that storage is still relevant? Hardware Must Innovate for Software to Innovate I think the industry often forgets that software innovation is impossible without hardware innovation. We've seen some pretty amazing hardware innovations...

Storage Field Day 19: Getting Back to My Roots

I’m excited that I have been invited to be a delegate at Storage Field Day 19. This is a little different than the Tech Field Day I attended in 2019, because the focus of all the presentations at this event is data storage. I am looking forward to this because I am a storage person. My career started as a Technical Trainer at EMC, I was a storage admin for a pharma company. I went back to EMC to develop technical training, I then went to work for Dell Storage, and then Inktank (a startup that provided services and support for Ceph). I guess you could say storage is in my blood, so Storage Field Day should be lots of fun. What to expect at Storage Field Day Here are the companies we’ll be visiting (in the order they will be presenting), and what I’m looking forward to hearing ...
