Beyond Data Protection

Yesterday, Veeam announced a $500M funding round. The company is privately held, profitable and with a pretty solid revenue stream coming from hundreds of thousands of happy customers. But, still, they raised $500M! I didn't see it coming, but if you look at what is...

Voices in Data Storage, now online!

I'm very happy to announce that my new podcast, Voices in Data Storage, is now online! Thanks to some great team work at GigaOm, every week I'll be able to record new interviews with end users, vendors and other industry experts to talk about the latest data, storage...

The Cloud Is More Hybrid Now

One could easily become inebriated by the slew of news AWS has year at its main event - re:invent - and this year was no exception. Of the all announcements what impressed me the most though was AWS Outpost. Long story short, Outpost is AWS in a box (rack, to be more...

I’ll be attending Re:invent. Let’s meet up!

It's all set. I'll be landing on Sunday the 25th in Las Vegas and attending Amazon AWS RE:Invent for the first time. The event is massive in size and dispersed in several locations, which is odd and will make things quite complicated, especially if you need to switch...

Chassis- rack- and datacenter-scale composability

I have been thinking a lot about infrastructure composability since TFD17. I’ve always considered composability mostly as a marketing buzzword to shake up the server market a bit, especially in the blade segment. But, after talking with companies like DriveScale and...
