Virtual desktop designs tend to overlook two key infrastructure components: Storage responsiveness and wireless network availability and performance. Yet without these two ingredients, VDI is doomed!

If you’re a real storage geek like me, you simply must attend SDC. If you’re there this year, come say hi! If not, you should start making plans for next year. Be there!
I love the Skyera idea: An integrated array not just designed for flash but designed without the “crutches” of SSD. The world of enterprise storage needed a kick in the pants, and flash is it. It’s exciting to witness real innovation!
I’m heading back to San Jose at the end of August for another Building Virtual Infrastructure seminar presented by Truth in IT. These all-day events are a chance for end-users to learn more about next-generation servers, networks, and storage.
ioN gives Fusion-io a place at the ultra-performance array table. Faced with the prospect of commoditization, Fusion-io is wise to respond with software-based differentiators that leverage the unique capabilities of their ioMemory architecture. It shouldn’t annoy too many partners, either.
