The first of a series of technical white papers I’m writing in these months has been published: Veeam for VMware Cloud Providers. Achieving the best RTOs and RPOs with Veeam Backup & Replication in Multi-Tenant environments. If you want to learn how to operate Veeam in a service provider environment, this paper is for you.
Solidfire: a “quality” storage
Da quando è uscita dallo stealth mode nel 2009 ho sempre osservato con interesse Solidfire, perchè hanno un prodotto storage veramente particolare, differente da tutti gli altri produttori, e di sicuro interesse per chi come me lavora nell’ambito dei service providers. Alcune settimane fa ho avuto una piacevole chiaccherata con alcuni loro rappresentanti, ed ho potuto finalmente approfondire la mia conoscenza sul loro prodotto.
Service providers ARE NOT large companies
I heard lately many presentations about virtualization solutions, being them orchestration solutions, or storage, networking or soemthing else, and the vendors selling them have a usual phrase “this product is designed for large companies AND service providers”. The underlying idea, coming from vendors thinking at both use cases for their products, is that a large companies is completely comparable to a service provider. At first, the thought is correct, but there is a significant difference that ultimately makes this thinking wrong.
