What Does the Future Cloud Look Like?

Gina Rosenthal breaks down what the future of cloud looks like after her time as a delegate for Cisco’s special Tech Field Day event. The event honed in on the very topic, so Gina combines both the subject matter covered by Cisco with her own thoughts and opinions here. Read on for the full picture.


Architecting AI Infrastructure

As a delegate at the first ever AI Field Day earlier this year, Gina Rosenthal helped to pioneer Tech Field Day into a new topic area! On 24×7 IT Connection, she writes about several the presenters she saw including BrainChip, Red Hat, Intel, MemVerge, and VAST Data. Gina notes that with the pool of professionals building AI infrastructures growing, there is an increased need for education around architecting those infrastructures. Our thanks to Gina for being on the delegate panel at AI Field Day, we hope you check out her deep dive!


How to Evaluate AI-Enhanced Analytical Tools

Writing for 24×7 IT Connection, Gina Rosenthal analyzes some of the AI-enhacned analytical tools presented by vendors at AI Field Day where she was a delegate. In her post, Gina reviews some of these AI-powered networking tools and provides recommendations for how to evaluate them. Specifically, she writes about Juniper’s Marvis Virtual Network Assistant as well as the AIOps from Aruba, and suggests that it’s important to do your homework before moving forward with utilizing AI!


HPE Nimble Storage at Cloud Field Day – Enterprise Storage

HPE presented on their recently acquired Nimble Storage portfolio at Cloud Field Day. Theresa Miller like what she saw from their cloud-based SAN-like option for cloud storage. Fundamentally, she’s not sure this will be an option for many companies just starting their cloud journey, but rather thinks it has a ready market with many of the existing big cloud companies.


Rubrik at Cloud Field Day – Backup your Cloud Today

Theresa Miller discusses meeting with the Rubrik team at Cloud Field Day. There, Rubrik presented on their cloud backup products, a topic Theresa sees as very important for any company making the transition to cloud. A solid long-run recovery and backup strategy is vital and is what Rubrik is aiming to provide with the Rubrik Cloud Cluster. Theresa seems optimistic about this product and looks forward to what Rubrik will offer in the future.


ServiceNow at Cloud Field Day – Not just for IT Anymore

After Cloud Field Day, Theresa Miller sees ServiceNow moving beyond just the helpdesk and into platforms that “simplify and automate business processes in a way that empowers the business user.” She sees this as a good step for ServiceNow in opening themselves up to be more business centric and not just limiting themselves to a helpdesk focused platform. Theresa believes that ServiceNow’s toolset could be a great addition to any organization that would see value from business automation of their many tasks.


NetApp at Cloud Field Day

Theresa Miller was thoroughly impressed by the NetApp team and their passion for technology at Cloud Field Day. She points out that NetApp has long been a storage giant, but this passion for technology makes it clear that they plan to be a player in the growing cloud market. They already manage over 240 petabytes of cloud data today, along with offering tools like AltaVault, NetApp CloudSync, and ONTAP, so Theresa is anticipating good things to come in NetApp’s future.
