Software-Defined & Cloud

As I started to do in December, I wanted to continue into January with a continued update on HPE Discover London, as there was a lot of valuable information I would like to share with you. As with any big event, you leave with one big take-away. That one big message for me was the speed in which the datacenter is changing. It may appear to a gradual change for some, but for others the idea of integrating hybrid IT solutions – using traditional IT and Cloud together, either being hosted on or off prem is really started to be the go to solution. Going back 6 years when I was focused on Cloud marketing, working with the analyst community we were all trying to predict which was going to be the year of the Cloud. Well, as you know it never really happened that way and the big transition never really happened. Today IT continues to demonstrate that they need the best of traditional IT and Cloud working seamlessly together….and more than anything else, they need simple IT solutions to get their apps running on infrastructure quickly.

My prediction for 2017: It’s all about transitioning the datacenter to a hybrid world (seamless incorporation of traditional IT and Cloud solutions). This will be all about simple IT solutions (regardless of on or off prem infrastructure), efficiently running applications that enables IT to continue to reduce maintenance costs and increase investment on innovation. If this is of interest to you, I have attached a series of video interviews from #theCUBE that were taped at Discover. Enjoy.

Ric Lewis – interview with #theCUBE

“Public cloud is certainly growing, at 20 percent; private cloud is growing almost as fast, at 17 percent,” said Lewis. He said these statistics, combined with customer conversations, indicate that the future is shaping up to be a hybrid world. HPE believes the company that is going to win the business is the one that can make hybrid IT as simple and a straight forward as possible for its customers.

 

Bryan Jacquot – interview with #theCUBE

For every software application, no matter its function, the interface and other elements of user experiences form a significant part of consumer impressions, making a lack of effort on that front perilous enough to hobble even the most powerful functionality in the market.

Gravic Announces First Synchronous Software Replication Product for HPE NonStop: Shadowbase ZDL™

Gravic’s first synchronous replication product for HPE NonStop environments, Shadowbase Zero Data Loss (ZDL), is now available! Shadowbase ZDL provides zero data loss protection for NonStop to NonStop business continuity and data and application integration purposes. Shadowbase ZDL is initially offered as a Controlled Availability (CA) product, so that Gravic can stay plugged into early customer deployments to ensure proper configurations and gather valuable real-time data. It is also available to HPE Shadowbase customers as a “TCD” release, meaning until HPE FCS, it should only be used in customer environments for testing purposes, and not for production usage. This initial release is limited to active/passive architectures on J-series and L-series HPE NonStop systems; additional architectures (e.g., Sizzling-Hot-Takeover, Active/Active) and features will be available in future releases. For more information, please email Gravic at SBProductManagement@gravic.com or call +1.610.647.6250.
