  2. Kubernetes has really taken off in a big way, and shows no signs of cooling. Since its release, it has become particularly important as part of cloud infrastructure. A big drawback is that many organizations still see Kubernetes as complex. Pivotal has been working to make Kubernetes more approachable with its Pivotal Container Service (PKS), which enables small teams of operators to manage numerous Kubernetes clusters at scale. The company is now taking all its learned over the years to make it easier for developers to deploy and run software on Kubernetes. Pivotal Announces Alpha PAS On Kubernetes
  3. This update to Barracuda's CloudGen Firewall is focused on improving the security of Azure Virtual Wan. With the update, the Office 365 policy set in Azure Virtual WAN by the customer is now automatically configured and enforced in every Barracuda CloudGen Firewall connected to Azure Virtual WAN. Now that the firewall respects Office 365 breakout policies, customers can specify Office 365 traffic categories that they trust and allow network traffic to bypass proxies so they can route directly to the nearest Microsoft network location. This should improve network flow. Connection and configuration of Barracuda CloudGen Firewall with Azure Virtual WAN is fully automated as well, making it easy to get started with the solution. Users need only to fill out authentication information and click "connect." Barracuda Firewall Now Enforces Office 365 Breakout Policies
  4. QoreStor version 6.0 adds additional support and services for cloud services. The new features should work across both Microsoft Azure and AWS cloud storage platforms to provide secure, long-term data retention. QoreStor 6 adds two new cloud-centric tiers; Cloud Tier and Performance Tier. Cloud Tier is a policy-driven, cloud extension to QoreStor. Cloud Tier offers access to move and recover data from cloud storage. Performance tier is a high-speed Storage Group that allows for faster backup and instant recovery technologies. Performance Tier also provides 2x recovery point objectives (RPOs) that enable quick recovery. Quest Releases QoreStor Version 6

    Compatible RAID cards Dell Precision 490

    So... I got myself an IBM ServeRAID M5015 (powered by LSI MegaRAID 9260-8i) but I'm running into a problem when I try to import the array which was made on the old Dell card Is there a way to manually import the array without data loss if you have the error below?
  8. For performance the drive had sequential 2MB speeds of 322MB/s read and 299MB/s write and random speeds of 303.6MB/s read and 273.4MB/s write. With 4K throughput the drive had 3,784 IOPS read and 6,455 IOPS write. For usability, the app is fairly intuitive and easy to use. If you need your data secure it is nice to have the extra steps between the data and someone that wants it for nefarious reasons. SecureData SecureDrive BT External Drive Review

    Multiple HBA incompatibility issue

    That depends on the motherboard-- that said, many motherboards only allow one option ROM to load during the boot cycle, hence the issue you're experiencing...
  10. The SecureData SecureUSB BT is a portable drive for those that need extra security. It comes with the regular security features such as FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Complaint Design, AES 256-bit Hardware Encryption. It can also take a beating and is resistant to dust and water. The more interesting aspect is that users will leverage their mobile device to unlock and use various features on the drive. SecureData SecureUSB BT Review
  11. Wow, HyperFlex...haven't seen that recommended in a very long time. Cisco won't even brief us on it any more. Not sure what's going on with that one. Do you have hands on usage with it?
  12. Cloud breaches happen. According to Gartner, by 2020, 80% of cloud breaches will be due to customer misconfiguration, mismanaged credentials, or insider theft, and not cloud provider vulnerabilities. Developers need to focus on building applications not spending all their time worrying about security and compliance. This is where Barracuda Cloud Security Guardian for Microsoft Azure comes in.

  13. Hello Vee, just joined this blog, really interested how Nutanix puts seeds in peoples minds regarding HCI solutions. in my 27 year career in the Data Center arena, I've learned and grown in technology, learned a lot but 2 things that I will stand for is "There is no HCI Solution without the right software and the right hardware" I know this post is really old and by now you have done all you need you to need, for future reference you need to look really close to a technology that provides Hardware and Software Optimize Hyperconverged Solution. Ex. look close at Cisco HyperFlex, unique technology that provides both, software and hardware from one single vendor.

  15. File storage is a critical component to enterprises and those that are going through their digital transformation prioritize it. Users of SAP need access to highly available and consistent file storage and developers that leverage Kubernetes need file storage for their stateful workloads. More and more workloads are migrating or starting in the cloud and need natively compatible file storage options. Elastifile has been a pioneer of enterprise-grade file storage at cloud scale. Google To Acquire Elastifile
  16. The product that the funding is directly related to is the Prodigy Processor Universal Chip. Tachyum claims its new chip is faster than Xeon and smaller than ARM. On top of that claim, Tachyum also states its 64-core processor requires 10x less power and reduces processor cost by 3x. The company has found a way to reduce the amount of hardware found in a typical processor that relates to faster speeds at a lower cost. The company says the new chip can enable an Exaflop supercomputer using a mere 250,000 Prodigy processors. Tachyum also states that its new processor will allow users to simulate, in real-time, human brain-sized neural nets beginning in 2020, instead of 2028. Tachyum Aims To Compete With Intel, AMD, & NVIDIA
  17. DataCore ONE is all based around the company’s new cloud-based predictive analytics engine, DataCore Insight Services (DIS). DIS is said to provide actionable insights from a 360-degree view of infrastructure-wide storage. Going more in-depth, DataCore quotes the new technologies to use the “The SaaS control plane draws on telemetry and the collective learnings from thousands of customers around the globe for early problem detection, best practice recommendations and capacity planning.” DataCore ONE leverages AI and ML to find possible issues and sends out corrective actions to users though some are highly automated and may be executed remotely from the same web user interface. This should result in less downtime which in turn will save costs. ONE also leverages auto-tiering that moves data to the appropriate class of storage not only increasing savings but increasing benefits particularly for containerized applications, virtual machines and bare metal hosts DataCore ONE Launches To Accelerate SDS
  18. Synology’s 12-bay DS2419+ is the latest member of the DS24xx+ family. The DS2419+ comes equipped with an Intel Atom C3538 quad-core processor with an AES-NI hardware encryption engine. Out of the box, this NAS comes equipped with a 4GB DDR4 memory module but is expandable up to 32GB when taking advantage of the additional memory slot the NAS provides. Also featured are four RJ-45 1GbE LAN ports with link aggregation and failover support. Synology DiskStation DS2419+ Review

    Multiple HBA incompatibility issue

    I realize this is an old thread but I am having a similar problem to that described in the lead post and I am wondering if anyone ever came up with a fix for it. Each card does not load individually for CTRL-C to provide individual access. It would be really wonderful if this were the case. Only one BIOS is visible, the one closest to the CPU.
  20. Other changes to Horizon Connection Server include enabling users to configure additional options in Horizon Administrator such as "Always", "Log to file on error (default)", and "Never" to enable event log messages to be generated and stored in Syslog format in log files. Users can publish and launch UWP applications now. And users are now able to select when they want to refresh the OS disks on their instant clones. VMWare Horizon 7.9 & CART 5.1 Released
  21. ORICO has released a stylish enclosure (in multiple colors) that allows users to carry around up to 2TB of NVMe storage. The enclosure is highly compatible and doesn’t get in the way of the underlying NVMe SSDs. The installation only takes a few seconds and then it is ready to go. The enclosure supports SSD TRIM command and the company claims speeds up to 992MB/s. ORICO NVMe M.2 SSD Enclosure Review
  22. Samsung has doubled the capacity of its latest M.2 NVMe SSDs with the introduction of the 970 EVO Plus 2TB. The drive comes with all of the same benefits as its smaller brethren as well as a modest bump in random performance. The company quotes sequential speeds at 3.5GB/s read and 3.3GB/s write and random performance at 620K IOPS read and 560K IOPS write. Like the rest of the line, the 2TB version is aimed at power users and gamers that need both performance and storage. Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2TB Review
  23. QNAP has launched its newest network-attached storage (NAS) appliance, the ES1686dc. QNAP was founded in 2004 in Taiwan and primarily provides network-attached storage (NAS) appliances. The ES1686dc features dual active controllers with Intel Xeon Processors. Each controller has four 10GbE SFP+ LAN ports, eight RDIMM slots for up to 512 GB memory, two M.2 SSD slots for configuring SSD caching, and scalable design for up to 1 PB storage capacity. QNAP ES1686dc NAS Released
  24. NetApp is surely jacked about this...recognition that you don't have to scale compute and storage together to still be HCI.
  25. All in all, this has been an excellent quarter for Dell. Their revenue for all converged segments grew by 34% year over year; significantly better than the industry overall, which grew by 19%. They're also dominating in the Hyperconverged sector with their revenue increasing by over $200 million and increasing their market share by about 3%. At the same time, both of the other top three companies actually saw their market share fall. Dell attributes much of its success in the HCI segment to the popularity of their VxRail HCI appliance. IDC Releases First Quarter '19 Worldwide Converged Systems Tracker
  26. Scality RING8 is the latest generation of their RING object storage software platform. Foremost among the new features in RING8 is an eXtended Data Management (XDM) tool, integrating cloud data orchestration into the RING. The RING8 eXtended Data Management tool integrates data management across multiple RINGs (as in edge/core configurations), providing a global metadata namespace and search across RING and public clouds. Scality RING8 Launched
  27. The IDPA DP4400 gives users more than enough tools to manage their backup data, even if it is not as smooth as some of the other interfaces offered by Dell EMC. Through the course of our review the platform got a much needed update bringing SSO, which helped by not needing to remember the different usernames required for each application. The IDPA home screen gives a sense of all the various bits and pieces running underneath the hood of the DP4400, which gives it many of its strengths, but also some weaknesses in regards to its complexity. The best way to view the DP4400 is as its own hardened VMware ESXi host, operating a number of VMs with shared storage across an array of applications. It gives users the feature set of a much larger backup stack, but contained inside a single 2U server. The benefit is consolidation for organizations requiring the full feature set it can offer at remote locations, but for an average small to medium business the complexity could be overwhelming. Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA) DP4400 Review
  28. Qumulo is releasing the first of their three new products, the C-168T, immediately. Qumulo C-168T is an SSD/disk hybrid intended for mixed workloads that need to balance cost-effectiveness with high-performance reads and writes. It has 168TB of raw disk storage and a 3.8TB SSD cache. It supports up to 25GbE for networking. All of this fits in just a 1U form factor. Qumulo Introduces Three Flash-Centric Platforms
  29. The EDSFF (Enterprise and Datacenter Storage Form Factor) is worth a brief look at all on its own. It is a brand-new specification, so modern that it was still being revised just two months ago. Its main reason for existing is that current form factors are both problematic for server teams to maintain and shaped in such a way that they often have to devote additional volume to avoid overheating. The EDSFF spec defines a high-capacity, hot-pluggable SSD that can fit vertically in 1U, works well in existing server and storage infrastructure and meets enterprise performance needs. By fitting vertically in 1U racks, the new drives will have significantly improved cooling characteristics and also make it easier to design racks to allow drives to be hot-swapped, reducing maintenance time and costs.
