My Life as a Tech Impostor http://techfieldday.com/2018/life-tech-impostor/ Tue, 22 May 2018 15:45:11 +0000 http://techfieldday.com/?p=21419 Being invited to Cloud Field Day caused Ned Bellavance to think about Imposter Syndrome. He's found that in technology, not knowing every thing doesn't make you an imposter, because everyone is in the same boat. Instead of worrying about being an imposter, he leaves the piece with some great advice: Know what you know. Learn what you can. Be generous those willing to learn. Learn from those willing to share.

ThinkPiece: Cloud Field Day: Can an old dog, learn new tricks? http://techfieldday.com/2018/thinkpiece-cloud-field-day-dog-learn-new-tricks/ Mon, 21 May 2018 15:06:35 +0000 http://techfieldday.com/?p=21409 At Cloud Field Day Michelle Laverick saw some encouraging sign from established companies adapting to the reality of the cloud. NetApp, Oracle, and Veritas all showed that despite being incumbent companies, they have identified how to be competitive against newer cloud-focused startups. This often involved spinning up entirely new teams that can operate with agility. Not every company was convincing in their cloud play, but Michelle was definitely impressed to see older companies making moves to stay competitive with the cloud giants.

PowerMax, VMAX, XtremIO – the Agony of Choice http://techfieldday.com/2018/powermax-vmax-xtremio-agony-choice/ Thu, 10 May 2018 20:08:18 +0000 http://techfieldday.com/?p=21380 Chris Evans looks at Dell EMC's newly announced PowerMax, an all-NVMe storage array. When fully configured, PowerMax can hit up to 10 million IOPS at under 300 microseconds of latency, while still being able to access the mature data service of their VMAX line. Chris raises a similar to point to Dell EMC's XtremeIO presentation at Storage Field Day last year, that with many families of storage arrays, Dell EMC needs to be very clear which line is best for prospective customers.
