Over at VMBlog, Tom Linnell, our VP of Engineering, answers some questions about Intel Optane. Tom has been involved in high-performance storage and computing for more than three decades, most recently at EMC. His conversation at VMBlog included his thoughts on:
A few months ago we survey over 2,000 IT decision makers about whether they had upgraded to vSphere 6, and what kind of storage they had. We've compiled the results intoa short presentation you can download.
It’s been over two years since Intel and Micron first announced a new type of memory called 3D XPoint. Hailed as the next generation of storage media, 3D Xpoint was described as faster than NAND, denser than RAM, and non-volatile.
We have a great technical team here at Infinio and starting today, they'll be sharing their point of view on technology, practitioner tips, and technical answers to common questions.
Albert Einstein once said, "No problem can be solved by the same kind of thinking that created it." At Infinio, we like to say that this is particularly true about storage performance problems - they can't be solved with hardware alone.
Next week, we're headed to VMworld 2017 in Las Vegas. This is our 5th time attending the show, and we're looking forward to a great time.
In case you've never been to VMworld, we thought we'd give you some advice on how to make the most of the week:
If you're headed to VMworld 2017 in Las Vegas, you're probably figuring out your schedule, choosing sessions, picking which parties to attend, and generally wondering how to pack two weeks of activities into four days!
Disclosure: As a leading DRAM and NAND caching company for data centers and private clouds, we’re collaborating closely with Intel on Optane testing, and it is an area of great interest to us. We’ve been closely following the discussion around the recent Register article that quotes Wikibon’s report on Optane by David Floyer. While we don’t have a subscription to Wikibon and thus can’t read the full report, we wanted to respond, as most IT decision makers will only see the Register article or the Wikibon free preview.
