    #59: Dave Demlow, Scale Computing (Intel NUC HCI)

    On this week's podcast Brian talks in person with Dave Demlow. Dave is the VP of Product Strategy for Scale Computing, which is code for getting to do the fun visionary work. Scale has been in the HCI business for about as long as HCI has been a thing. Historically Scale has sold HCI like everyone else, usually in a rack but sometimes in a tower form factor. They even recently announced NVMe nodes for customers that need more performance. But in this podcast, we talk more in detail about the announcement they made at the end of last year around micro HCI at the edge.

    #58: Rob Hunsaker, Dell Technologies – Cloud Tiering Appliance

    This week on the podcast Brian sits down with Rob Hunsaker, from Dell Technologies. Rob talks about the Dell EMC Cloud Tiering Appliance, which may be one of the least known components available to Unity/Unity XT storage arrays. In fact, CTA goes way back, some VNX arrays out in the wild are still using the CTA. What's really interesting though is that most who are leveraging it are moving a lot of data and they're opting for Dell EMC ECS more often than the public cloud.

    #57: Preetham Mukhatira, Dell Technologies – Azure Stack HCI

    In this week's podcast Brian chats with Preetham Mukhatira, Director of Product Management at Dell EMC. On the podcast Preetham dives into the overall Dell EMC HCI portfolio, with an emphasis on the Azure-based offerings. While most know of vSAN Ready Nodes, VxRail and the larger converged solutions, Dell Technologies has been pioneering Azure-based solutions since day 1. With this week's launch of new AX nodes,  Dell EMC has perhaps the most complete HCI portfolio in the industry.

    #56: Shawn Meyers, Tintri

    In this week's podcast Brian talks with Shawn Meyers, Field CTO at Tintri. The podcast starts off with Field of Dreams talk and winning an Eric Davis autographed baseball. Shawn talks about his years as a customer, and reminisces about Fusion-io edge cards.  Eventually the topic of Tintri comes up, which has been around about a decade at this point. What started out as storage for VMs has gown up some. The platform now owned by DDN, which claims to be the largest privately owned storage company...that happens to be profitable.

    #55: Richard Kennedy, Qumulo

    In this week's podcast, Brian sits down live, in person, with Richard Kennedy, an SE with Qumulo. We recently posted a review of the Qumulo software and before we tear down the cluster, wanted to create a few more pieces of content. Richard and Brian did a live stream on YouTube, with Q&A, for those wanting a deeper dive on the Qumulo interface and capabilities. In this podcast we cover off on some of that, along with talking about what it means to be an SE and why the Pittsburgh Steelers are complete trash. #WhoDey

    #54: Patrick Kennedy, STH

    #54: Patrick Kennedy, STH

    In this week's podcast Brian and Patrick Kennedy from STH go to war, as two enemy tech websites collide in the squared circle. Actually not quite, we're friends and spend ten minutes talking smoking meats. From there we get into tech; Patrick talks Intel and AMD server CPUs (of course, massive nerd alert). The guys break down PCIe Gen4, Patrick's favorite server from 2020 and eventually, the nonsense surrounding SMR drives.
