Join editors from the Modern Infrastructure e-zine as they discuss the Impact Awards, flash storage and data center automation in this inaugural podcast.
The recent Modern Infrastructure Bright Idea Impact Award recognized PernixData’s FVP flash product for its ability to cache both reads and writes as part of improving data center performance. Expert Bob Plankers talks about the winning product as well as the trends around using small amounts of flash storage judiciously in a virtual data center. He also discusses innovation by large companies that are willing to put R&D resources behind employee ideas.
Modern Infrastructure editors also discuss the cover story for the January issue, on data center automation. Editor-in-Chief Alex Barrett talks about the research behind her story, and some of the market trends pushing companies toward automation, namely DevOps and cloud computing. Of course, scripting is nothing new, and some enterprises are simply dipping a toe into automation waters with small, repeatable tasks.
