Reading Time: 6 minutes Some weeks ago I was invited to as a delegate at the first edition of Data Field Day (#DFD1) event, scheduled in May 13–15, 2015 in California (Silicon Valley and San Francisco). Data Field Day event purpose was to cover different topics from others Technical Field Day events: from big data to analytics to hyperscale architecture and cloud security, and all waves of innovations that are transforming the IT. A new format for some growing trends, including micro-services, mobile and the Internet-connected world. As written in a previous post not all presentations where completely in topic: some where too much storage oriented. […]

Reading Time: 1 minute As written in a previous post, the first edition of Data Field Day (#DFD1) event, scheduled in May 13–15, 2015 in California (Silicon Valley and San Francisco). Data Field Day event will cover different topics compared to others Technical Field Day events: from big data to analytics to hyperscale architecture and cloud security, and all waves of innovations that are transforming the IT. A new format for some growing trends, including micro-services, mobile and the Internet-connected world. An there will be an event inside the event: on Wednesday, May 13th, there will be an Ignite event with industry participants and expert […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes I’m really honored to have been invited to as a delegate at the first edition of Data Field Day (#DFD1) event, scheduled in May 13–15, 2015 in California (Silicon Valley). Like others Technical Field Day events, Data Field Day is 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. Data Field Day event will cover different topics: from big data to analytics to hyperscale architecture and cloud security, and all waves of innovations that are transforming the […]

Reading Time: 8 minutes During the first Italian Tech Field Day Extra (at Cisco Live 2015 in Milan) the company that we met was, of course, Cisco. For an entire day we had different sessions with different Cisco’s people and talk about their different products, but also their different solutions and approaches. It was a full day (January 26th) from 9:00 to 17:00 with a bunch of interesting information (especially for me, where the networking part is usually the simplest part of my project, considering the medium size of Italian projects and environments).

Reading Time: 2 minutes 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, this year, also one on 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 enterprise IT technology.

Reading Time: 5 minutes 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 […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes 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 […]

Reading Time: 1 minute 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.

Reading Time: 5 minutes 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 […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes 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 […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes 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, […]
