During the first European Tech Field Day Extra (at VMworld EU in Barcelona) the first company that we met was X-IO Technologies. As written in a previous post, X-IO has a long term (over two decades with different names) of expertise to deliver unmatched price/performance for enterprise applications. It’s all started in 1999 with Seagate Technologies with the idea of build a new zero touch design storage: Seagate invested over $100 million in this project, but on 2007 this technology was acquired by Xiotech (in 2007) and Intellinget Storage Element (ISE) has began is life on […]

During the first European Tech Field Day Extra (at VMworld EU in Barcelona) we have met again VMTurbo. The presentation was pretty similar to the one at the past Virtualization Field Day 3 in Palo Alto earlier in 2014 (see this post). The core founding team started VMTurbo in 2009 (the initial company was called SMARTS but was soon acquired by EMC), realizing that the rapid growth of virtualization in the datacenter was redefining the management requirements for companies of all sizes. The VMTurbo platform first launched in August 2010 and since that time more […]

During the last Tech Field Day extra at VMworld Europe after the first day there was an interesting roundtable discussion between the delegates. The topic was about hyper-convergence systems that was one of the hot themes during the VMworld, considering also the VMware announces. Of course EVO:RAIL was one of the main points, but not only and there were lot of interesting considerations.

During the first European Tech Field Day Extra (at VMworld EU in Barcelona) one of the companies was Veeam with an interesting session. Veeam does not need any introduction because it’s well know both in the data protection world and in the virtualization ecosystem. There were Doug Hazelman (VP or Product Strategy and Chief Evangelist at Veeam Software), Rick Vanover (Product Strategy Specialist and Community Manager at Veeam Software) and Luca Dell’Oca (EMEA Evangelist at Veeam). Of course one of the session’s topic was about the Veeam Availability Suite, but the main theme was how Veeam solves […]

Tech(nical) Field Day are well know events, organized by Stephen Foskett and his team, with the purpose of bring together innovative IT product vendors and independent thought leaders to share information and opinions in a presentation and discussion format. There are different Tech Field Day events by topic (Storage, Virtualization, Networking, Wireless and, next year, also Data), but also some special events live from other IT events: Tech Field Day Extra and Tech Field Day Live. And although not a Tech Field Day event, the same staff has occasionally organized a live Symposium event to showcase a particular area of […]

I’ve already written some general considerations about the Tech Field Day events and now it’s the turn to write something particularly on the third edition of the Virtualization Field Day (#VFD3). The organization itself of this event is perfect and honestly the Stephen Foskett‘s idea to make the Tech Field Day is awesome and represent a big opportunity both for the vendors (that can spread the voice in a different way) and for the delegates (that can really learn a lot from new solutions and/or approaches). For this reason my first thanks goes to the entire […]

During the second day of the third edition of Virtualization Field Day (#VFD3) one of the companies that we (as delegates) met was CommVault, a company in the backup and data protection field and, of course, in the virtualization environment. But it’s quite limiting say that it’s just a backup company (although it’s well know mainly for this aspect), backup and restore capability is obviously a core part of their service offering. And probably one of the limit of their presentations at #VFD3 was that they were too much focused only on the backup aspects, […]

During the first day of the third edition of Virtualization Field Day (#VFD3) one of the companies that we (as delegates) met was Pure Storage (in their cool office in Mountain View) that is a company in the storage world and of course also in the virtualization world. The realize storage both on the software and on the hardware part, although this second one is completely build by Pure Storage, expect the Lego version of their storage (that I suppose was the same used in this contest). Their solutions fits in the all flash enterprise […]

During the second day of the third edition of Virtualization Field Day (#VFD3) one of the companies that we (as delegates) met was Spirent, that was (at least for me) a new name in the virtualization ecosystem. The company itself is well know in other fields and area, especially in test, measurement and service assurance solutions. There where pioneered in testing of Ethernet networks, IP Telephony and VoIP, VPNs, Multiplay, Cloud Computing environments, Data Center networks, CDMA applications, and Location Based Services. Spirent’s lab test solutions are used to evaluate performance of the latest technologies. […]

During the first day of the third edition of Virtualization Field Day (#VFD3) the first company that we (as delegates) met was CloudPhysics, and was really a great way to start the #VFD3. CloudPhysics helps systems administrators make smart, data-driven decisions. Their groundbreaking SaaS platform brings Big Data analytics to your virtualized datacenter, generating fresh operational insights that you can act on with certainty. Big Data technology is used by companies across numerous industries to discover new ways to improve operations. Ironically, one industry that is missing from the list is IT itself. CloudPhysics goal […]

During the first day of the third edition of Virtualization Field Day (#VFD3) one of the companies that we (as delegates) met was Atlantis Computing that was a well known company VDI environments, but some weeks ago they have also enter officially in the storage arena with the announce of Atlantis ILIO USX™ (Unified Software-defined Storage) solution. I’ve already write about Atlantis ILIO products and how their unique host caching solution could be interesting in several cases (mostly in VDI environments). Those solutions are appreciated by more than 440 customers (500,000 VM licenses sold globally). […]
