Architecture matters - 3PAR Chief Architect Siamak Nazari

Last week at VMworld, I hosted a couple of blogger briefings.  One of the people I put at the top of my list to brief bloggers is Siamak Nazari.  I've been fortunate enough to have Siamak brief bloggers for the last few HP Discover events as well.  Siamak is an incredibly smart guy but does a great job at explaining complex topics to make them understandable and is a great story teller.  

 

While I didn't record the blogger briefings at VMworld, Siamak was a guest on the Cube and the topic he was asked to talk about is the architecture of HP 3PAR and why HP has been able to optimize 3PAR for flash.  This is a very enlightening conversation and I think you'll see why when ever I brief bloggers, Siamak is the first person I call.

HP StoreOnce 6500: Driving industry leadership with highly resilient backup

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage

 

6500.jpgLast BURA Sunday I talked about our innovative approach to protecting your data in virtualized or remote environments with StoreOnce VSA. Today I’m shifting the focus to the other end of the spectrum: protecting data in large or fast growing enterprises. I don’t have to tell you that the pace of business is accelerating and your company has to move toward a real-time business model—one where transactions and information sharing are near instantaneous. This transition is increasing demands on not only the performance and scalability of the underlying IT infrastructure but also availability and reliability. As process timelines are compressed from weeks or days to hours, minutes or even seconds, the cost of downtime skyrockets. Almost all aspects of today’s business environment rely on the uninterrupted availability of platforms, applications and data. Here’s how HP StoreOnce 6500 Backup meets that need for highly resilient backup.

 

The Game Show Network Games and Big Data

Nth Symposium was a few weeks ago and one of the keynotes was delivered by Portman Wills.  Portman is the Chief Data Scientist at the Game Show Networks Games.  Portman discussed how they log every action taken by gamers and with HP Vertica, they use that information to improve their users' experience and drive higher revenue. 

 

For me, the keynote did a great job of making big data real and specifically how HP Vertica is used to get the insights that Portman discussed.  So Portman graciously said yes to my request to talk to him (he had a flight shortly after his keynote ended) and I think you'll find this as interesting as I did.

Virtualizing tier-1 applications with all-flash VMworld session podcast

P1050959.jpgLast week I gave the 3PAR team a break from publishing a 3PAR Thursday blog post and I’m doing the same thing again this week, sort of.  Earlier this week at VMworld Priyadarshi Prasad (Pd) and Eric Siebert presented a session titled The Perfect Stormage: Virtualizing Tier-1 apps with All-Flash Arrays.  I recorded the audio of the session and wanted to share it with you here.  I’m also including a PDF of the session’s slides that you can use. 

 

 

Here's the podcast:
