Cloud Field Day 3; Day 3 – That One Thing….

Chris Porter finishes up his rundown of each day of last week’s Cloud Field Day in this post. That Friday saw two companies present, Druva and Veritas. Chris was intrigued by the possibilities Druva’s cloud-native data management as a service provided, particularly with running VMware workloads on VMC, effectively keeping all your infrastructure inside of AWS. Veritas’ CloudPoint stood out to Chris because of its unique support for native snapshots on EC2, Azure, and GCP instances.


Cloud Field Day 3; Day 2 – That One Thing….

Day two of Cloud Field Day was the busiest of the event. Delegates were treated to see Droplet Computing come out of stealth, followed by presentations from Rubrik, Riverbed, and NetApp. In this post, Chris Porter runs down what he saw from each, and what stood out in each presentation.


Cloud Field Day 3; Day 1 – That One Thing…

With Cloud Field Day over delegate Chris Porter takes a look back at day one of the event. This saw presentations from Morpheus Data, Delphix, and Oracle. Morpheus shows how they create an abstration layer for cloud services while still retaining unique features to particular services. Delphix showed how they can speed up the cycle of getting database backups to test/dev systems. Finally, Oracle gave a deep dive into their Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
