What's the impact downstream on architects and operations? What are some practical next steps for technologists to keep up with the convergence of business and technology?Read More
I'm going to be honest. I've more or less ignored Cohesity. I've categorized the platform as a scaleout Data Domain. In a TechRepublic blog post, I wrote about how to use Cohesity as a replacement target for backup. Interesting to a point. My friend and former Principal VMware Architect Rawlinson Rivera announced he was leaving VMware's Office of the CTO for Cohesity.
Rawlinson is now the Global Field CTO for Cohesity. If not the face of vSAN, Rawlinson birthed CaptainVSAN. I've had him on the podcast before talking about the enterprise mission critical features of VSAN.
To be honest, I've written Cohesity and the market off as just another set of backup focused solutions. Rawlinson has the reputation of bringing to birth compelling technologies and a proven product evangelist. I wanted to know what in Cohesity the company and market clawed him away from VMware. That's today's conversation.

As I do often, I found myself in a great Twitter conversation. This time it was if OpenStack is needed if you are pursuing a container only strategy. It evolved into a conversation around if the Software-Defined Data Center has a single pane of glass for management or even a single API for consumption. I'm joined by Eric Wright and we discuss the future of the software-defined data center.
Every vendor is claiming their solution is software-defined. Does just having software enough to make something software defined As engineers focused on building software-defined infrastructures, myself, Josh Atwell and Mark May, we debate what's software-defined. What are the characteristics of software-defined and the benefits.
Does Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) save money? I've been quoted as saying HCI doesn't save money over traditional 3-tier architectures. I'm joined my Nutanix' Steve Kaplan (@ROIDude) and discuss in further nuance where HCI is used for cost avoidance or optimization over 3-tier architectures.
