Rank #2: #127: Hyper Converged Infrastructure and the Three P’s

Podcast cover
Read more

While Hyper Converged Infrastructure provides the ability to simplify the deployment of cloud and application solutions, it also brings with it some unexpected considerations.   Chad Engel (@Engel_Chad), Sr Sales Director Hyper Converged, likes to consider them the three P’s: People, Process and Politics.  In some cases, the three P’s can lead to a delay in adopting the benefits of a hyper converged infrastructure. Chad has some interesting thoughts on how to bring down those barriers and embrace the operational efficiencies of Hyper Converged.

As Dell EMC Hyper Converged Solutions extend to include development stacks such as the VxRail AS (Azure Stack), the value prop becomes clearer, infrastructure to accelerate application and business enablement.

Rank #3: #115: Emerging Media: Flash, Compute, Interconnects, Apps and the Data Center, Hello 2018!

Podcast cover
Read more

[The Source Podcast] Emerging Media: Flash, Compute, Interconnects and Apps and the Data Center. Hello 2018!

What is emerging media? For years now, we have equated emerging media to “Flash Storage” and rightfully so; remember 2016 The Year of All-Flash? As promised, Flash has fundamentally changed the way enterprise storage systems are designed, and to a greater extent, Flash has changed the way we live – whatever device you are reading this on most certainly has NAND Flash at its core.

But, as it turns out, Flash was just the latest evolution of Moore’s Law. While Flash continues to evolve: TLC, QLC, V-NAND, MLC Z-NAND, Z-SSD and 3D XPoint for example, we have just begun to scratch the surface. Emerging media applies to other areas as well. Who better to update us than the Vice President of Dell EMC Emerging Media and Dell EMC Fellow, Danny Cobb (@Dcobbweb).

Emerging Media applies to much more than just storage media. The media evolution applies not only to storage, but applies to Interconnects, Compute, Applications and Application Development and the Data Center itself.

The Source Episode #6: Flash.  If you know me, you know that I’ve spent a lot of time in the middle of EMCs Flash initiatives, as documented at www.insideflash.com. It’s only natural for me to have Dan Cobb, VP of Flash and Non-Volatile Strategy on The Source.  XtremIO is revolutionizing the way EMC customers manage and deploy application infrastructure – but XtremIO is more about software than Flash.  Flash is a storage media used by every EMC Product team. Did you know EMC has been leveraging Flash in the form of SSD for over a decade?  Dan shares some insight into how we got here, and what the future holds.  Be sure to subscribe to The Source Podcast on iTunes and Google Play.

With Cloud data center providers embracing Canadian soil, the adoption of hybrid cloud strategies in Canada has increased considerably.  Or as Peter Near (@pnear), National Director of Systems Engineering VMWare Canada puts it, “Canadians have gone from pumping the brakes to pressing the accelerator”, regarding Hybrid Cloud Adoption.  In this episode of Dell EMC The Source Podcast, Peter explains the benefits to those Canadian customers that needed to wait for local cloud data centers, and the maturity of the tools and processes available to make the move.  No longer are we talking about converting and re-platforming.  We are talking about taking what we are doing today, modernizing what we are doing in our private cloud and easily integrating with public cloud, and simplifying the ability to move workloads as requirements change.  For all my Canadian friends, be sure to follow @VMWareCanada and @DellEMC_Canada for the latest.
