Infinidat has recently released version 4.0 of it's InfiniBox software, the brains behind its speedy, massive, hybrid flash/hard-disk storage arrays. What’s the big deal? A hybrid storage array that meets or beats all-flash arrays on all their traditional strong points, at the cost you’d expect from inexpensive spinning-disk arrays, plus seven nines reliability and super-fast synchronous data replication so that no data is ever at risk of being lost. As more companies discover the benefits of InfiniBox, the notion that all-flash arrays are suitable for high-performance storage may prove to be just another flash in the pan.
With Hewlett Packard Enterprise's recent announcement that it will soon be bringing the ground-breaking InfoSight technology to its 3PAR StoreServe, the value of HPE's recent acquisition of Nimble Software is more clear than ever. The move means InfoSight will soon be available across a full portfolio of HPE data solutions: from systems for small businesses all the way up to the largest enterprises. This makes HPE’s storage portfolio the most complete in the industry. Since InfoSight learns by analyzing data from its installed base, it's about to get a whole lot smarter.

When HPE acquired 3PAR back in 2010, their Storage Array Network got a boost that made them a contender in data security, and storage against companies like EMC, Dell, and IBM. So far, this flash-optimized data security has successfully competed in the mid-range, and enterprise level storage arenas.
Kelser Corp and Cisco have been working together to provide businesses with the latest technology, proving to be both leaders and innovators in the industry.

Kelser’s VP of Professional Services, Matt Kozloski, and Manchester Community College’s Director of Technology, Barry Grant, spoke recently at NERCOMP’s annual conference in Providence, RI. They presented, “A VDI Design for Cultural Change” to a packed crowd of IT professionals that practice in the educational space. Their presentation shared the journey of bringing VDI to MCC. Read the recap of the event here. Here are Matt’s thoughts about the conference and his reflections on the benefits of virtualization in higher education.
(This post provides a continuation to Matt Kozloski’s post about Nexus 9000 Automation. In his post, Matt provides a primer on Nexus 9000 and shows some example code using PowerShell to access the REST API on the Nexus 9000.) We already know that the Nexus 9000 is an awesome switch, before we even get to the goodness of its programmability features. For example, the Cisco Nexus 9372PX performs non-blocking 10G line rate switching, has 6x 40GbE uplinks, and it sports a rich set enterprise functions you would expect from a Cisco Nexus switch, such as L2 switching, L3 routing, VXLAN, VPC, and Fabric Extenders to name a few. In this exercise we are going to query the switch for some information remotely using Python.
