All of our customers run VMware vSphere - every one of them. So we are very familiar with how vSphere gets deployed, how it is managed, and how critical it is to the organizations that use it.
We've written previously about Intel's Optane cards - why to consider them, what workloads they're suited for, and how to get the most out of them with VMware. Today we'll share some initial results from our lab testing with Optane.
Dear Cache Guys,

The recent revelations about the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities found in Intel CPUs have had far-reaching consequences. Being in the storage industry, we've been most interested in the impact that these vulnerabilities (and their fixes) have on storage.
If Santa didn't bring you the storage array you had on your Christmas list, don't despair. With our software, and a non-disruptive 15-minute installation, we can have your old storage array working as good as new. Here's how:
As 2018 quickly approaches, we're taking a moment to look back at 2017, a great year here at Infinio. Here are the 5 best things that happened:
1. A record number of new customers chose to add Infinio to their datacenters, including Marriott Vacations, Symantec, and Pillsbury Law.
2. We racked up our frequent flyer miles attending 30 local VMUG UserCons around the United States, from Boston to Seattle, and San Diego to South Florida (and everything in between!) Find out what we talked to attendees about.

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.
