ZeroStack Adds Learning To Their Automated Infrastructure

ZeroStack demoed their “self-driving” cloud at Tech Field Day last week. Ethan Banks gave it a look and came away impressed. He doesn’t see this as a VMware replacement right now, but the current tools and roadmap the company outlined certainly could make it tempting in a refresh cycle or two. Despite using the buzzwords of “machine learning” and “artificial intelligence” to describe their automation, Ethan saw it as a good way to automate a lot of the typical production tedium.


Back to Tech Field Day

Andrea Mauro is heading to Tech Field Day in Austin, coming up February 1st. He give a little context for his own involvements with past events, including some Virtualization Field Days and Tech Field Day Extras, but this is his first full Tech Field Day. He gives a rundown of his impressions of the presenting companies, but overall is excited to meet with other delegates, and to get into the technical deep dives. We’re excited to have Andrea coming to Austin, and can’t wait to hear his impressions of the presentations!


Zerostack for a cloud managed datacenter

Raff Poltronieri put together a walkthrough of ZeroStack’s current private cloud platform. Overall, he liked that the UI is easy to understand, while still supporting some powerful configuration options. Raff thinks it might be easier to manage than a typical AWS UI. We’ll see what ZeroStack has in store for us at Tech Field Day in Austin, coming up in February.


ZeroStack and the Complex Cloud Conundrum

In an age where everything from WAN to security is being defined by software in the enterprise, have we reached the saturation point? Rich Stroffolino thinks there’s one big part of the enterprise left, the data center itself. He takes a look at what ZeroStack will be doing to make a self-driving cloud environment possible. They’ll be releasing their full solution in February, but it’s a fascinating preview.


Tech Field Day 13 Preview: Zerostack

Tech Field Day is coming up in February, and Thom Greene is excited to hear from ZeroStack. He likes how they take advantage of some of OpenStack’s abilities, while still maintaining a lot of the cost effective advantages of on-premises setups. They host user interface and daily operations in the cloud, with everything else managed in Zblock, their hyperconverged platform. We’ll see what they present at Tech Field Day.


Startup Radar: ZeroStack Streamlines OpenStack For Private Clouds

Drew Conry-Murray gives a look at what ZeroStack is providing. Simply put, they’re offering an OpenStack based private cloud software solution that’s easy to deploy and configure. ZeroStack supports both their own 2U units, or servers that an organization has in house. Overall, Drew thinks the market for these kind of solutions is still open enough for ZeroStack to really make an impact. Perhaps the biggest appeal, ZeroStack is saying you don’t need to be an OpenStack expert to operate their solution. That certainly lowers the barrier to entry for a lot of enterprise customers.
