Opvizor Performance Analyzer for vSAN

At a VMUG a couple of months ago I bumped into my old friend Dennis Zimmer. Dennis told me that he was working on something cool for vSAN but couldn’t reveal what it was just yet. Last week I had a call with Dennis about what that thing was. Dennis is the CEO for Opvizor, […]

First of all, congrats with Round C funding. As we’ve all seen, lately it has been mayhem in the storage world. Landing a $90 million […]

Startup intro: Runecast


Advertise here with BSA

I met with Runecast a couple of years ago at VMworld. Actually, I am not sure they already had a name back then, I should probably say I met with the guys who ended up founding Runecast at VMworld. One of them, Stan, is a VCDX and back then he pitched this idea to me […]

Rubrik update >> 3.1


Advertise here with BSA

It has been a while since I wrote about Rubrik. This week I was briefed by Chris Wahl on what is coming in their next release, which is called Cloud Data Management 3.1. As Chris mentioned during the briefing, backup solutions grab data. In most cases this data is then never used, or in some cases […]

Startup intro: Reduxio


Advertise here with BSA

About a year ago my attention was drawn to a storage startup called Reduxio, not because of what they were selling (they weren’t sharing much at that point though even) but because two friends joined them, Fred Nix and Wade O’Harrow (EMC / vSpecialist fame). I tried to set up a meeting back then and […]

Datrium DVX goes GA


Advertise here with BSA

I wrote an article about Datrium DVX when Datrium came out of stealth about 6 months ago. I am not going to rehash that as I think it was pretty clear around what Datrium DVX is. Datrium DVX is a combination of “host local data services” and network accessed storage capacity. This basically means that […]
