Podcast #85: Designing Servers for Ruler SSDs and Other Next-Gen Technology
We've been talking a lot about E1.S (ruler) SSDs lately. The last podcast covered ruler, we even transcribed key findings from that conversation in a ruler deep dive. Now, we've got a box of E1.S SSDs in from SK hynix, that leverage the popular 15mm z-height standard. Having the flash is fun and all, but the systems out there that can support Gen4 E.1S SSDs are pretty thin. Thankfully, the guys at Viking Enterprise Solutions have just the tool for this work.
Podcast #84: Ruler SSDs are Finally Coming to the Enterprise
This podcast offers an amazing deep dive into Ruler SSDs and what the new form factor means to the enterprise data center. The big cloud providers have been on ruler SSDs for a few years. But mainstream adoption of Ruler has been hampered largely because there are too many shapes and sizes. That's changing for the better. The industry is standardizing on a 15mm z-height, which believe it or not, is the lynchpin that was required for big server vendors to get to work. Even if you're not deploying Ruler SSDs today, learning about what's coming with E1.S and E1.L is what this pod is all about.
Podcast #83: The Future of Power Management in the Data Center
If you've followed us for long, you know we're big fans of Eaton. That's not just because they send us racks, UPSs and PDUs. We like them because they're always embracing new technology. This is abundantly clear as we point out in our last review of the new Lithium-ion 9PX UPS. Lithium-ion offers faster charging, more density, and lighter weight amongst other benefits. After the review, we saw a lot of social outreach asking for more of this type of content. So here you go, a podcast dedicated just to power talk.
Podcast #82: The latest in VDI with Teradici
In this podcast, our resident expert on end-user computing, Tom Fenton, commandeers the microphone for a deep look at the latest developments when it comes to enabling a remote workforce. We are excited to have Mirela Cunjalo from Teradici (the folks behind PCoIP) join us to discuss.
Podcast #81: The Composable Data Center with Fungible
The Fungible data center offers the ability to create infrastructure on the fly, pulling from CPU, GPU, and storage resources as needed. This allows for better utilization and a cloud-like model in terms of consumption. Underpinning the Fungible model is their own data processing unit (DPU), which handles most of the work. In fact, their FS1600 NVMe-oF storage platforms have no traditional x86 CPU at all running exclusively on the DPU. Listen or watch our latest podcast to learn more about the notion of composable data centers and how Fungible aims to bring its vision to the enterprise.
Podcast #80: Chia Coin Master Class With Jonmichael Hands
Jonmichael Hands left what most consider to be a very good job at Intel, taking on the role of head of storage at Chia. Chia is a cryptocurrency that's billed as one of the most green in the world since it leverages proof of space (PoS) rather than proof of work (PoW). The PoS model in this particular blockchain works in two core functions. That is Chia plotting, then Chia farming. The plotting work is best done on high-speed NVMe SSDs, while the farming, where coins are earned, is done on good old hard drives - no GPUs needed. This is the definitive Chia podcast to get you entirely up to speed on what the latest crypto craze is all about.
