Exchanging IT Knowledge: VLCM Series

Posted by Jared Quan on Mar 5, 2015 6:11:31 PM

VLCM IT Exchange was one of the most notable events VLCM has ever delivered to its customers to bring them information, connections and knowledge. One of the dynamic pieces of the event was the engaging and informational breakout sessions. Though there were thirteen sessions to choose from, there were only three opportunities to attend the ones you were interested in. Thanks to great volunteers and phenomenal presenters, we have been able to capture a bite size piece of the breakouts to share with everyone. The first series of sessions happened in Salon G of the downtown Marriott in Salt Lake City. Josh Allen was the VLCM representative who covered the presentations in that room, and had the opportunity to work with our partners- Brian Clark of VMware, Michael Ferguson representing Barracuda, and Jason Patterson from HP.

Event Recap: VMworld and HP 3PAR Updates

Posted by Priscilla Silva on Oct 29, 2014 12:00:00 PM

A number of IT professionals joined us for an event with HP and VMware to discuss the fundamentals of storage system architecture and the key topics of VMworld 2014. If you happened to have missed the event or are curious on what was discussed, read the presentation overview and download the slides, below, to use as a reference.

System Hardware Architecture Matters

Traditional Modular Storage has always been cost efficient but works with an active-passive, dual-controller design that is limited in scalability and resiliency. Traditional Monolithic Storage is scalable, resilient and has an active-active design but is costly to any organization. These traditional storage plays might not meet multi-tenant requirements efficiently.

HP 3PAR Architecture is cost-effective, scalable, resilient, meshed, and has an active-active architecture. This solution meets cloud-computing requirements for efficiency, multi-tenancy and autonomic management. The fail-over is almost instantaneous because no single controller owns a LUN individually. All nodes have access to all resources, so each LUN is managed through all controllers.
