Topic: Datrium - Open Converged Infrastructure for Hybrid Clouds
Gone are the days that IT staff want to configure, manage, and troubleshoot their infrastructure. IT administrators demand simplicity; all that matters is that applications run simply, reliably and fast.
Hyperconverged Infrastructure (“HCI”) took a first step towards enabling this new computing paradigm, which according to Gartner will reach $10 Billion in sales by 2021.
The next step is Open Converged Infrastructure, which provides a powerful, cost-effective yet simple approach to increasing system/application performance under increased workloads. This new breed of convergence is:
· Simpler than Hyperconverged without vendor lock-ins
· Faster than All Flash Arrays
· No Backup Silos
Datrium delivers a new breed of tier-1 converged infrastructure with consumer-grade simplicity by combining compute, primary and secondary storage, and cloud backup into a single platform.
Datrium DVX extends beyond HCI to address both mission critical, low latency workloads as well as backup and cloud data management for hybrid clouds.
Presented by: Bryce LeBlanc, Principal Systems Engineer – Pacific Northwest, Datrium
It should be another terrific presentation so plan now to attend and bring a guest!
As always, we will have pizza (and now salad!) (sponsored by Datrium!) available for your eating pleasure along with door prizes and free information!
