See you at HP Discover in Las Vegas?

HP Discover is the main worldwide event organized by HP every year. There is a US event and an EMEA one. In the past, I’ve attended a couple of times the EMEA version.
This year it’s going to be different for me. I joined Veeam Software few months ago, and Veeam is going to be, like in previous years, a sponsor of HP Discover.

Articoli, blog, whitepaper prodotti da analisti, blogger e dalle stesse aziende che producono una qualsiasi soluzione basata sulle memorie NAND. Ognuno possiede una propria soluzione; tutte sono state concepite per risolvere gli annosi problemi di lentezza dello storage basato su dischi meccanici, ma allo stesso tempo la modalità in cui si offrono di risolvere questo problema è molto differente una dall’altra.
In ambienti già consolidati, l’introduzione di una soluzione piuttosto che un’altra è una scelta da effettuare con molta attenzione.

Add a Flash storage in an existing environment

Each of them have their own solution: all have been designed to cure the long-standing problems involving the slowness of storage based on spinning disks; but at the same time the way they solve the same problem is completely different one from the other.
In an existing environment, the introduction of a given solution is a choice requiring special care.
