Greybeards on storage are two (older) gentlemen that have been around the industry to many years to count and have a good, in-depth understanding of today’s storage, server and networking trends and developments. In our podcasts we interview leading technology executives and get them to talk about their products, the industry and where the IT world is going.
117: GreyBeards talk HPC file systems with Frank Herold, CEO of ThinkParQ, makers of BeeGFS
We return back to our storage thread with a discussion of HPC file systems with Frank Herold, (@BeeGFS) CEO of ThinkParQ GmbH, the makers of BeeGFS. I’ve seen BeeGFS start to show up in some IO500 top storage benchmark results and as more and more data keeps coming online every day, we thought it time … Continue reading "117: GreyBeards talk HPC file systems with Frank Herold, CEO of ThinkParQ, makers of BeeGFS"
116: GreyBeards talk VCF on VxBlock 1000 with Martin Hayes, DMTS, Dell Technologies
Sponsored By: This past week, we had a great talk with Martin Hayes (@hayes_martinf), Distinguished Member Technical Staff at Dell Technologies about running VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) on VxBlock 1000 converged infrastructure (CI). It used to be that Cloud Foundation required VMware vSAN primary storage but that changed a few years ago. .

115-GreyBeards talk database acceleration with Moshe Twitto, CTO&Co-founder, Pliops
We seem to be on a computational tangent this year. So we thought it best to talk with Moshe Twitto, CTO and Co-Founder at Pliops (@pliopsltd). We had first seen them at SFD21 (see videos of their sessions here) and their talk on how they could speed up database IO was pretty impressive. Essentially, they … Continue reading "115-GreyBeards talk database acceleration with Moshe Twitto, CTO&Co-founder, Pliops"
114: GreyBeards talk computational storage with Tong Zhang, Co-Founder & Chief Scientist, ScaleFlux
Seeing as how one topic on last years FMS2020 wrap-up with Jim Handy was the rise of computational storage and it’s been a long time (see GreyBeards talk with Scott Shadley at NGD Systems) since we discussed this, we thought it time to check in on the technology. So we reached out to Dr. Tong … Continue reading "114: GreyBeards talk computational storage with Tong Zhang, Co-Founder & Chief Scientist, ScaleFlux"
113: GreyBeards talk storage for next gen. workloads with Liran Zvibel, Co-Founder & CEO WekaIO
Sponsored By: I’ve known Liran Zvibel, Co-founder and CEO of Weka IO for many years now and it’s the second time he’s been on our show, (see: Episode 56: GreyBeards talk high performance file storage...). In those days, WekaIO was just coming out and hitting the world with this extremely high-performing, scale out unstructured data … Continue reading "113: GreyBeards talk storage for next gen. workloads with Liran Zvibel, Co-Founder & CEO WekaIO"
112: GreyBeards annual year end wrap-up with Keith & Matt
It’s the end of the year, so time for our regular year end wrap up discussion with the GreyBeards. 2020 has been an interesting year to say the least. It started out just fine, then COVID19 showed up and threw a wrench in everyone’s plans and as the year closes, we were just starting to … Continue reading "112: GreyBeards annual year end wrap-up with Keith & Matt"
