Paul Frisoli, Nimble Storage

Flash-Optimized Storage Architectures

This presentation will explore the evolution of storage architectures over the past 25 years, reviewing the technology inflection points and core business drivers that have propelled the transitions from direct attached to monolithic to modular storage solutions. 


We are at the beginning of the next major technology inflection driving enterprise storage. Solid state drives (SSDs) promise to solve the performance challenges inherent in spinning disks, rendering traditional storage architectures obsolete.    


But SSDs by themselves are not the solution. The next decade will be dominated by storage architectures designed from the ground up to leverage the best characteristics of flash and disk. Will these new solutions be able to simultaneously deliver high performance and high capacity primary storage? And can they improve data protection, improving recovery point and recovery time objectives with far less cost and complexity? Learn the answer and examine real-world case studies in this informative session.

Speaker Bio:

Paul comes to Nimble after 4 plus years with Dell supporting New England. Prior to Dell, Paul spent 8 years with VMware, Xiotech, and Cisco supporting the New England customer base and partner ecosystem. He is a college graduate with a B.S. in Management from Bentley University in Waltham, MA, and upon graduation continued his development in IT engineering and management until joining Cisco in 2000.

2 Virtualization Products in MDOP 2012

Microsoft released TWO virtualization products in the 2012 update to the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack, but these are the same as the 2011 version.  The App-V product is a complete re-write for the Application Virtualization product, MED-V is gone, and a new entry in the User Virtualization Layer field, called UEV is now in.  Tim will take you through what you need to know about these products.

Speaker Bio:

Tim Mangan holds the title of "Kahuna" at his company, TMurgent Technologies.  President of VirtG, he is a Microsoft MVP and Citrix CTP.  He has writing a few books and speaks on virtualization and windows performance around the world.
