Cloud Field Day 8 Day 3 Highlights

Lino Telera has done a great job writing up all the presentations he saw during Cloud Field Day. In this post, he focuses on Infrascale and Zerto. Both companies presented on the third day of the busy event. He looks at Infrascale’s novel approach to backup and recovery, which actively monitors backup data against radical modifications like a sudden change of content in order to detect and prevent ransomware. Zerto also impressed Lino, with their continual refinement of their platform, now supporting stateful Kubernetes applications.


Cloud Field Day 8 Day 2 Highlights

Lino Telera wrote up his impressions on the second day of presentations at Cloud Field Day, which focused on Diamanti and Morpheus Data. Diamanti focused on version 3.0 of Spektra. This release introduced support for Hybrid-Cloud deployments, Multi-Tenancy, and Resiliency across multiple sites. Morpheus meanwhile showed off the latest update to their SaaS multi-cloud management platform, which Lino sees as well suited for MSPs thanks to the emphasis on automation.


Cloud Field Day 8 Day 1 Highlights

Cloud Field Day offered a truly impressive number of presenting companies, and Lino Telera got to participate live, if virtually. In this post, he looks at the highlights from the first day of the event. This featured a presentation from Veeam, who recently got acquired by Insight Partners. They talked about their Cloud Native Backup solution, which can integrate with specific elements depending on a cloud provider. Then HPE’s Aruba Networks presented, show their Aruba Edge Services Platform and how it uses AIOps with ML models for telemetry and action purposes.

Storage Field Day 15: The open convergence by Datrium

Datrium presented at Storage Field Day last month. Lino Telera got to hear about their concept of Open Convergence. This bucks the trend of traditional HCI, offering a different model for delivering tier-1 and secondary data in a scalable solution. They do this with an architecture build around stateless compute nodes and stateful storage nodes. This provides less cross talk between nodes, and allows for truly remarkable scale, as Lino saw during their presentation.


Storage Field Day 15: Weka.io

In this post, Lino Telera looks at Weka.io’s presentation from Storage Field Day in March. They presented on their Matrix file system, which is designed for a scale-out and based on commodity hardware.


Storage Field Day 15: Cohesity the solution for secondary data

Lino Telera was at Storage Field Day earlier this year, and got a look at Cohesity’s secondary storage solution. He looks at how their hybrid filesystem, SpanFS, is designed to provide visibility via a global file index of backed up virtual machines.


Storage Field Day 15: Dropbox the high availability in a “pocket”

At Storage Field Day, Lino Telera got to hear from Dropbox. They presented about their Magic Pocket architecture, which allowed them to transition from depending on AWS, saved them $75 million over two years, and increased performance. Lino gives a great overview of the architecture here. Perhaps most surprising to him was the work Dropbox put into optimizing their networking across their entire platform.
