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.
In the past year, VSAN has become a major force in enterprise storage. Once relegated to test labs, VSAN is now probably the top product we hear customers considering as their storage refresh comes around.

Uh, oh did you miss our "VMware Storage Performance: 5 things you didn't know" webinar a few weeks back? Here are the 5 things we shared with our audience:
The University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education and Hotel is a conference center located in Athens, GA. With 200 hotel rooms and over 35,000 square feet of conference space, the UGA Center is an active resource used by the entire University community.
The UGA Center had been using a different server-side cache whose market stability was in question, so the team set out to find a replacement.
Andy Stowe, systems administrator at UGA, says, “We talked to some other divisions here at the University. One was using a solution and said that when they turned it off, ‘people went crazy,” so we decided give that a try. It was Infinio.”
“Response times were fast – as low as 170 microseconds - which is even faster than our all-flash array."
