A new gen for NexGen?

NexGen was one of the first real flash/hybrid with QoS storage solutions, and it leveraged PCIe flash (i.e. Fusion-IO cards) to great effect. Which we suppose had something to do with why Fusion-IO bought them up a couple of years ago. But whatever plans were in the works were likely messed up when SanDisk in-turn bought Fusion-IO because we haven't heard form NexGen folks in awhile - not a good sign for a storage solution. Well, SanDisk has now spun NexGen back out on its own. While it may be sink or swim time for the NexGen team, we think it's a good opportunity for all involved.

VMware Virtual Volumes – What impact will they have on the datacenter?

Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss one of the hottest topics in the datacenter: VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes (VVOLs). VVOLs is the industry's first solution to enable native virtual machine-awareness across a broad range of SAN/NAS arrays. VVOLs will be packaged as a feature in VMware vSphere Standard Edition and above as well as in VMware vSphere ROBO editions, and is seeing a groundswell of interest from IT professionals, especially those involved in datacenter operations. The panel includes VVOL experts from four major vendors that have announced they will be implementing VVOLs into their storage. Some of the questions we will be asking them include: What immediate impact will VVOLs have on the datacenter? What should the early adopters look for in a VVOL-based storage solution? Should datacenters start to implement VVOLs right away or wait for VVOL.next?

Hyperconverged Storage Evolves - Or is it Pivoting When it Comes to Pivot3?

Pivot3 recently acquired NexGen (Mar 2016). Many folks have been wondering what they are doing. Pivot3 has made a name in the surveillance/video vertical with bulletproof hyperconvergence based on highly reliable data protection(native erasure coding) and large scalability (no additional east/west traffic with scale) as a specialty. So what does NexGen IP bring? For starters, multi-tier flash performance and enterprise storage features (like snapshots).
