John Shedlosky, Sr. Systems Engineer
An Introduction to VM-Aware Storage
We will discuss and have a live demonstration of a new class of storage where the fundamental organization unit of management, reporting and optimization is the VM and vDisk. This allows unprecedented visibility and predictability in virtualized environments. As VM-Aware storage platforms become more commonplace in the industry, it will be important to evaluate and compare the relative benefits of the various platforms, much like the various platforms for general purpose storage.
John Shedlosky has been a Senior Systems Engineer with Tintri for two years. John has been working in the storage industry for 15 years evangelizing new technologies. He has worked with a number of emerging storage technologies and companies including Data Domain, EMC, Nimble Storage and Tintri.
