The first day of Storage Field Day 2

Tomorrow we’ll have a busy schedule on the first day of Storage Field Day 2. I’m really looking forward on hearing about the cool stuff these companies will be presenting. Here is our schedule for tomorrow:

08:00-10:00 Nimble Storage
10:30-12:30 Nimbus Data
13:30-15:30 Zerto
16:00-18:00 Tintri
18:45-19:30 Asigra

Let’s take a closer look at the companies we’ll be visiting tomorrow (click on the pictures for more information):

The mission of Nimble Storage is simple: Give our customers the most efficient, high performing, and scalable storage platform on the market. Nimble arrays can easily handle all your applications, user data, and server and desktop virtualization projects. Based on the CASL™ architecture, Nimble Storage accelerates applications, protects more data, and empowers IT to take on new projects and drive growth.

Nimble Storage was founded and is run by industry veterans responsible for ground-breaking technologies and architectures around primary storage, backup storage, and data protection. They’ve built a tight-knit culture of innovation focused on changing the data storage game, taking a unique, bottoms-up approach to reinventing how the data for next-generation datacenter applications is stored, served, and protected.

Nimbus Data Systems, Inc. develops award-winning Sustainable Storage® systems, the most intelligent, efficient and fault-tolerant solid state storage platform engineered for server and desktop virtualization, databases, HPC, and next-generation cloud infrastructure. Combining low-latency flash memory hardware, comprehensive data management and protection software, and highly-scalable multiprotocol storage features, Nimbus systems deliver dramatically greater performance at a significantly lower operating cost than conventional disk-based primary storage arrays, all at a comparable acquisition cost.

In fact, up to 50x greater performance. Nimbus’ all-flash enterprise storage systems leverage the incredible IO performance of solid state technology to deliver superior application performance to Server and Desktop Virtualization, Databases and OLTP, and compute-intensive HPC and Rich Media.

Cut 80% of your storage power budget while reclaiming racks of datacenter space. Delivering the IOps equivalent of 14 racks of 15K RPM disks in just one rack of flash memory, and with power consumption as low as 5 watts per terabyte, Nimbus delivers the industry’s most efficient primary storage.

Dramatically simplify storage provisioning and high availability with unified storage. Complete software and enterprise-grade fault tolerance proven over 5 years at customers like eBay and the US Department of Defense simplify storage administration so your IT staff can deliver better uptime in less time.

Zerto provides enterprise-class disaster recovery and business continuity solutions for virtualized data centers and cloud environments.

Zerto provides large enterprises with data replication solutions designed specifically for virtualized infrastructure and the cloud. Zerto Virtual Replication is the industry’s first hypervisor-based replication solution for tier-one applications, replacing traditional array-based BC/DR solutions that were not built to deal with the virtual paradigm.

Today, enterprises of all sizes are deploying applications on virtualized IT infrastructures and clouds. The values of virtualization including flexibility, scalability and mobility can complicate business continuity efforts in times of disaster. The advantages of virtualization can be in conflict with your ability to recover the business in the event of disaster.

Tintri has an exceptionally strong team. With a demonstrated track record of recent success — including key leaders from VMware, NetApp & Data Domain — Tintri’s talent pool is unusually deep and accomplished. The fusion of pioneers from both virtualization and storage domains gives Tintri a unique perspective, unburdened by traditional orthodoxies and preconceptions.

From the beginning, Tintri has focused exclusively on storage for VMs. Tintri’s founders identified the clear mismatch between traditional networked storage approaches and an elegant shared storage model for VMs. This sharp focus enables both pervasive simplification, as well as the creative application of key new technologies in service of furthering virtualization.

Tintri’s vision is simple: everything in the data center should be virtualized. Our mission is to drive dramatically increased adoption of virtualization by providing a clearly superior alternative to traditional networked storage adapted to VMs. We believe that this is only possible with storage specifically designed for VMs.

Asigra brings a Cloud Model to backup and recovery – including the backup and recovery of mobile devices such as tablets and smart phones – through our Cloud Backup, Recovery and Restore software solution: Asigra Cloud Backup™ v11.

The business model is one of building and fostering partnerships. Asigra does not sell direct, but through a global ecosystem of Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Resellers that are Powered by Asigra. We are not a MSP and there is no channel conflict between Asigra and our partners.

It’s great to see all these companies on the Storage Field Day. A few of them I’ve met on Storage Field Day 1 in April,, and a few of them I know from meeting them on VMworld or other conferences.
