Datera Shows the Value of Data in Use

Justin Warren saw something unique from Datera’s presentation at Tech Field Day last month. For him, it was particularly useful because it focused on the cost of change. Datera’s storage solution focused on lowering that cost of change, allowing for greater experimentation and innovation by organizations.


Podcast #3 – Chris & Matt Review the SFD18 Presenters

In this podcast episode, Chris Evan and Matt Leib did an off the cuff rundown of the Storage Field Day presenters. The event was jam packed with interesting IT companies, and the two do a great job of running through what stood out from Cohesity, Datera, IBM, NetApp, StorPool, VAST Data WekaIO and Western Digital.


Datera and Modern Data Center

Marina Ferreira takes a look at the software-defined storage solution from Datera that was presented at Tech Field day earlier this month. What was interesting was the effort that Datera took in the presentation to show what their idea of a modern data center looked like. This was important to contextualize how Datera is serving this modern architecture.


Storage Field Day 18 – It’s as Intense as Storage Field Day Gets

It’s hard to believe it, but Storage Field Day next week will be Max Mortillaro’s 7th such event. It’s hard to image having one without him around the delegate table. Despite the prospect of jet lag and a little information overload, he’s excited to hear from the full roster of presenting companies on tap. Be sure to tune into the event live stream to catch all the presentations along with Max.


TechField Day 18 – Day 1 With Datera, NetApp and VMware

Ed Horley was one of the delegates that made his way down to Austin for Tech Field Day last week. The event had a full roster of prominent IT companies. In this post, Ed focuses on what he heard on day one of the event, with presentations from Datera, NetApp, and VMware. For him, the three companies showed varying approaches on how to differentiate their solutions based on how they are handling data analytics. These differences in approaches were illuminating in how each pitched their value to the delegates.


TFD18 Prep: Datera

Justin Warren did a full profile on Datera ahead of the company’s recent presentation at Tech Field Day in Austin. The company recently had a lot of corporate shakeup, bringing in a lot of new faces in the c-suite. This hasn’t stopped the company from impressive customer and revenue growth though. The company seems to have found a sweet spot as a software-defined storage as-a-service provider, serving customers with low-latency storage while offering stateful data portability not found on typical cloud offerings. We’re looking forward to see if Justin was just as impressed after their presentation.


Data Mobility – Global/Scale-out Data Platforms

Chris Evans published another post in his ongoing series about data mobility in hybrid cloud. In this post, he looks at Global NAS and other distributed storage solutions, and includes a consideration of how to deal with data consistency. Solutions from NooBaa, Qumulo, Weka, Elastifile, Hedvig and Datera are included in this overview.


My dilemma of stateful storage marriage

Chin-Fah Heoh has been thinking about stateful data in stateful storage containers and how they would interact with distributed applications containers and functions-as-a-service. This led to a consideration of what a distributed data systems would look like, wherein the idea of a “data center” seems like an oxymoron. He’s seen some past Storage Field Day companies offer pieces on how to get to a distributed data system. Chin-Fah will be at Storage Field Day next month, and looks forward to seeing how Hedvig and WekaIO will offer more pieces to this puzzle.


Datera Elastic Data Fabric

Rich Stroffolino takes a look at Datera’s Elastic Data Fabric, as presented at Storage Field Day in March. With this solution, Datera hopes to provide a way to make on-site storage as flexible and automated as public cloud offerings, and to provide easy ways for organizations to adopt a hybrid cloud strategy.


Datera – Hybrid Is The New Black

Dan Frith wrote up his impressions of Datera’s presentation from Storage Field Day earlier this month. He reviews how the company has progressed in their aim to provide a self-optimizing invisible cloud infrastructure, highlighting their already excellent policy driven autonomous feature. New to this presentation, they are now focusing on delivering the experience while maintaining high performance and lower latencies. Dan further looks at how Datera is able to do this in a hybrid cloud environment.


Storage Field Day 12 – Day 2 Recap

Adam Bergh went to first first Storage Field Day this month. In this post, he gives some of his thoughts from day two of the event. He heard presentations from Nimble Storage, NetApp, and Datera.


The Datera Company overview

Arjan Timmerman wrote an overview of some of the company principals he learned while visiting Datera at Storage Field Day earlier this month. Their presentation started with an overview from CEO Marc Fleischmann. He explained that Datera wants to give companies the ability to create their own architecture as a service, enabling them to develop true hybrid cloud solutions. Arjan found the presentation really engaging and was pleased to hear more from Datera.
