During the last IT Press Tour (the 14th), in the Silicon Valley (December 1-5, 2014) we met several companies in different categories (Cloud, Storage and Big Data). The first company that we met (on the first day) was Nimble Storage, one well know name in the storage world (and present for the fouth time at a IT Press Tour).

During the last IT Press Tour (the 14th), in the Silicon Valley (December 1-5, 2014) we met several companies in different categories (Cloud, Storage and Big Data). The third day has started (and also ended with a dinner) with Diablo Technologies, a privately held company, headquartered in Ottawa, Canada, with additional teams throughout the United States and Europe.

During the recent VMworld Europe, I’ve got the opportunity to talk with Steven Willson (VP Technology Services EMEA at Violin Memory) and Eric Herzog (Chief Marketing Officer and SVP of Alliances at Violin Memory) of Violin Memory about their storage products and their users cases in virtualization projects. I’ve already met them one year ago, during the past edition of VMworld Europe and this was the opportunity to know the news about those months. As I already written in the previous report, their storage are completely flash based, but the big difference from other similar approaches (like Nimbus Data and Pure Storage) is […]

During the first European Tech Field Day Extra (at VMworld EU in Barcelona) one of the companies with the more technical presentation was Diablo Technologies. This company was founded in 2003 and they’re working on Memory Channel Storage (MCS) which is a very high performance host flash solution. There where Jerome McFarland (Principal Product Marketer, Diablo Technologies), Daniel Beveridge (Senior End User Computing Architect, VMware), Ricky Trigalo (Director Virtualization Solution Architecture, Diablo Technologies) to explain this kind of solution and how apply in virtualized environments.

Dell Fluid Cache for SAN is a complete, flexible enterprise application acceleration solution (announced during the past Dell Enterprise Forum) producing stable, unprecedented I/O performance which can help businesses and  organizations reduce online transactional latency, allow increased concurrent users, and improve computational performance for applications such as online transactional purchasing (OLTP) and virtual desktop interface (VDI). Mainly is a host-side cache (that can work both as a read and a write cache) but completly build around Dell products and Dell software and could be used both for VMware vSphere (5.5) environment or also for Linux […]

PernixData FVP is a Flash Hypervisor software aggregates server flash across a virtualized data center, creating a scale-out data tier for accelerating reads and writes to primary storage in a simple and powerful way. Was one of first (probably the first) to implement a fault-tolerant write back acceleration. In the previous posts I’ve described the installation and the configuration procedures of FVP 1.5 on vSphere 5.5, now it’s the turn of the final considerations and comments.

Was one of first (probably the first) to implement a fault-tolerant write back acceleration. As part of the PernixPro program, I’ve got the opportunity to test various version of this product that actually support all version of ESXi 5.x (so is not limited to the 5.5 version) and works both with the vSphere Client and also with the vSphere Web Client.

Fusion-IO is a well-know company in the host-side flash solutions to accelerates databases, virtualization, cloud computing, big data, and the applications without change your storage. Their In-Server Acceleration products are impressive (sometime also in the price) and can provide up to 10.24TB of flash to maximize performance for large data sets, or also solutions for blade server (with the ioDrive2® Mezzanine). Thanks to Fusion-IO Italy I’ve got the opportunity to test thee Fusion-io 410GB ioScale, the smallest model of this product line (ioScale products use MLC technology and are in these capacities: 410GB, 825GB, 1650GB, […]
