Oracle Ravello Build Day Live in Isreal Dec. 7 at 9 AM PST

?? It’s our first Build Day Live overseas, and in a country I’ve never been to before! We are in Tel Aviv, Isreal where we take to the Cloud! Oracle Ravello has a Cloud Management platform and Hypervisor that allows you to run on either AWS, Google, or Oracle public clouds. They also have a software-defined network component that allows enterprise networks to be built on top of those public clouds. We will be using an ESX server to connect with the Oracle Ravello system so we can start deploying VMs across our own network. The Live Stream happens on December 7th at 9 AM PST – which is at 7 PM here in Isreal. The process will include exclusive interviews with engineers talking about the product, and giving us a guided tour through the interface.

Datrium DVX Open Converged Build Day

Want to know more about Open Convergence? Want to be able to install a DVX into your data center? That is where Build Day Live comes in. We’re in Sunnyvale, CA at Datrium to install the DVX into our vSphere environment. As always, we’re here all week dry running the installation to find out what works and what doesn’t. Then we wipe the system clean and install in front of your eyes. Our friend Keith Townsend (CTO Advisor) is also here to interview the execs, so you get the full picture. About Datrium Datrium focuses on Open Convergence for private clouds. They coined the term to break free from Hyperconvergence, due to how they address limitations in virtual infrastructure. Open Convergence allows for high-performance apps to get the resource it needs, while giving customers an easier budget to work with building their systems. About Build Day Live Build...

Build Day Live: HPE SimpliVity 380 Build Day

I will be joining Alastair Cooke once again for another Build Day Live, as we install SimpliVity 380 into his network. This is a live series where we come to the company and walk through an install of hardware into our infrastructure. Our goal: Deploy a 3+2 with Federation 2 cluster. Install VM instances, talk backup, do a DVP deep dive, and much more (as time allows). It is awesome that Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has invited us back to build a SimpliVity box. We’ve been here since last week working on strategy, and going through a dry run to make sure we have everything in place for the stream. We have Brian Knudtson, Marcel Guerin, Richard Greenwalt,and many more joining in on the conversation, and support knowledge to make this all go smooth. Of course, Becca Taylor is helping us with much of the support needs, and...

nVidia Grid, Tesla P40, M10 GPU over CPU Performance

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSWhile at VMWorld, I learned more about nVidia’s offerings for server GPUs. Especially in companies where running and working with graphics is important. Instead of installing an expensive desktop at a person’s workstation, the Tesla series of GPU accelerators can give you the horsepower you need. nVidia Tesla P40 GPU With 24 GB of GDDR5, and a memory bandwidth of 346 GB, the P40 will give performance to high-performance need. Each GPU has 47 Tera-Operations per Second, a server with 8 P40’s will deliver the same performance of 140 cpu servers. nVidia Tesla M10 This board allows for up to 64 users at a time, or 128 with 2 boards per server. Utilizing 2560 CUDA cores (640 per GPU), programs such as AutoCAD, Photoshop, Autodesk MAYA, ArcGIS, and more will deliver without buying another desktop machine. nVidia at VMWorld 2017 (the...
