Podcast #87: What’s Next for Azure Stack HCI with Cosmos Darwin
Microsoft's Azure Stack HCI offering has grown up a lot in the last year. We've looked at the solution a few times both from Dell and DataON. In fact, we just posted a review of DataON's AZS-6224 Integrated Systems. We gave the solution an Editor's Choice Award again. The new 3rd Gen Xeon CPUs, Gen4 Intel SSDs, and the updated Azure Stack HCI OS from Microsoft make a very compelling offering that in our case, saw over 4 million IOPS out of a base three-node configuration and only 15 Intel P5510 SSDs.
Podcast #86: DataON Integrated Systems for Azure Stack HCI
We've worked with DataON a good deal in the past around their Azure Stack HCI offerings. They've done some great work with their Intel platforms and they've been able to take advantage of the entire ecosystem, including Intel servers, Optane storage, TLC SSDs, and even QLC SSDs for a low-cost data tier. Now, with new platforms in hand, DataON is positioned even better than before to be the leader when it comes to Azure Stack HCI hybrid infrastructure.
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.
