Everybody Can Have Hybrid Block Storage - IBM Virtually Tiers All Storage To The Cloud

Once upon a time, when clouds were young, we thought that all our fancy storage arrays would shortly sport built-in cloud tiering mechanisms.  It seemed natural to want to burst capacity to the cloud, maybe even replicate some data to a cloud DR clone, or archive corporate data into some big data lake in the sky.  There were a few gateway products and 3rd party replication utilities rolled out here and there, but for the most part on-premise storage and cloud storage have been kept a world apart. ...
(but now) ....  IBM Spectrum Virtualize, which is built into many IBM storage solutions (like Storwize and FlashSystem v9000) and available as a virtualizing solution over most 3rd party storage, is now inherently cloud-enabled.

What’s a Multi-cloud Really?  Some Insider Notes from VMworld 2017

As comfortable 65-70 degree weather blankets New England here as we near end of summer, flying into Las Vegas for VMworld at 110 degrees seemed like dropping into hell…. as everyone still able to breathe immediately says -“at least it’s a dry heat.”... Anyway, VMworld inside was much nicer - ... For us analysts, VMworld is work after all!

Open Wide and Say Ahh!

I’ve been immersed in “Open” for the last two weeks here in Boston, attending both Red Hat Summit 2017 and then OpenStack Summit. There are quite a few things worth paying attention to, especially if you are an enterprise IT shop still wondering how your inevitable cloud (and services) transformation is really going to play out, including accelerating application migration to containers and the rise of platform Management as a Service.

Actual Hybrid of Enterprise Storage and Public Cloud? Oracle creates a Cloud Converged System

What’s a Cloud Converged system? It is really what us naive people thought hybrid storage was all about all along.  Yet until now no high performance enterprise class storage ever actually delivered it.  But now, Oracle’s latest ZFS Storage Appliance, the ZS5, comes natively integrated with Oracle Cloud storage. What does that mean? On-premise ZS5 Storage Object pools now extend organically into Oracle Cloud storage (which is also made up of ZS storage) - no gateway or third party software required.
