I was lucky enough to be invited to attend Storage Field Day 14 taking place in Silicon Valley California. For those of you that aren’t aware of SFD, it aims to unite tech bloggers and community champions with technology vendors for an immersive learning experience about their technology.
Check out SFD here >> techfieldday.com
Taking part in SFD14 were the following vendors
Unusually DellEMC sponsored three of the sessions meaning there wasn’t as much traveling around as some of the SFD events. For me working regularly with Dell EMC technoligies it allowed me to get a deeper understand of the Dell EMC product range but also speak to some great tech start ups.
I plan on writing individual blog posts covering each of the presentations as time allows but for this blog post I wanted to bring together some of the videos and doodles I created whilst attending.
Attending SFD14 was a fantastic experience where I got to meet some fantastic inspirational technical specialists and learnt a huge amount. Hopefully I will get the chance to attend again in the future.
To sum up some of my lessons learnt during the week
- If you need massively reliable enterprise class storage then DellEMC has the answer with VMAX
- If you are struggling to manage PB’s worth of data, take a look at Scality
- If you need a data protection solution to protect your data on-premises or in the cloud then Data Domain has a solution
- If you are a midrange business with the need for a reliable, performant and VMware integrated storage solution then Dell SC or Unity should be considered
- If you have a Linux based workload requiring 1million and excess IOPS take a look at E8 Storage
