  • What Kind of Platform Does Your ISV Business Need?

  • NetApp plus Veeam - a winning partnership

    NetApp and Veeam have recently announced a joint business special offer for EMEA, leveraging key aspects of each other’s portfolio. I’ve been a keen supporter of Veeam technology ever since they made people sit up and take note after winning the ‘VMware 2010 Best in Show’ award, and I’m pleased to see it’s still turning heads today. Determined not to just follow the masses and their back up applic...

  • What are the Hottest Technology Trends of 2017? Part 2

    Welcome back to the second part of my 2017 predictions. If you missed part 1, please click here. Hello computer…. Voice control is nothing new, it’s been a feature in many devices for a number of years. However, it’s also been driving people crazy; ordering the wrong tickets or dialling someone you didn’t want to speak to. We’ve recently seen a few big steps forward in voice recognition technolog...

  • What are the Hottest Technology Trends of 2017? Part 1

    Historically, it might take three to four years before businesses would actually embrace brand new technologies from the wild. However, this is changing and can now be as little as months or even weeks. As the competitive edge gets thinner, organisations are always on the lookout for what they can adopt in order to gain an advantage in the marketplace. This is now all about having the fastest, lat...

  • Dell EMC - Come and Join Us on the Journey

    On the 12th October 2015, Dell announced that it would acquire EMC, a Vendor that Arrow in the UK had shared significant success with during our trading relationship. Almost 17 months later and I’m delighted to be able to confirm details around what the largest IT merger in history actually means to Arrow, specifically in the UK&I. It means opportunity, and lots of it! For Arrow, our partners and ...

  • Rise of the Next Generation Array (NGA)

    In a previous blog, I talked about predictable performance and how it can have a huge impact on your any business. In this blog, I’ll go into detail on another aspect of predictability within the SolidFire array.  But before we start, I’d like to address how we refer to SolidFire as a product. I’m not happy using the term array, SolidFire is so much more than a storage array. In the same way that ...

  • IoT – The Internet of Treachery

    So the Internet is a far cry from what it was when things were kicked off back in the early 80s; essentially the combination of two huge networks. It grew from there but didn’t really get popular (in my eyes) till the World Wide Web came later in the 90s. That’s when things started to go a bit crazy… So where are we now? Welcome to the 21st Century Internet: The Internet of Things This is a world ...

  • What's new with NetApp?

    I have recently started teaching the latest NetApp course ONTAP 9: What's New? It provides a solid introduction to the new features that ONTAP 9 brings to the world of data storage and is targeted at an audience who is already using NetApp products and is looking to upgrade. I wasn't sure which new features would mean the most to my delegates. I had my own favourite new features, but which would r...

  • Getting to grips with SolidFire

    We’ve had Nike MAGs, Pepsi Max and Hover boards, now we look to the data centre of the future I have been doing more and more with SolidFire over the last few months and I’ve had somewhat of a revelation about it. Around this time last year, I thought there was too much overlap with the FAS wing of the portfolio for NetApp to be pursuing an acquisition. To the uninformed this may look true on pap...

  • The Data Fabric

    In recent years utilising the cloud has become more popular. IT departments can choose to place data storage and compute resources in the cloud instead of using their own local resources. One reason might be cost control. Cloud resources often follow a pay-as-you-go model. As an example, an IT department could create test and development compute resources easily and then delete them when the testi...

  • Painting a Vanilla Sky - Expanding the NetApp Hybrid Cloud

    During the first general session at NetApp Insight 2016 in Las Vegas, George Kurian, CEO (and a fascinating person to listen to), stated that “NetApp is the fastest growing SAN vendor and is also the fastest growing all-flash array vendor.” This is superb news for any hardware company, but for NetApp, this isn’t enough. He is currently leading the company’s transformation into one that serves you,...

  • Software-Defined Storage

    The IT industry has more buzzwords than most of us can keep up with, and sometimes it's difficult to see how a new buzzword or marketing term is relevant to me. In this case, Software-Defined Storage (SDS) is something which has a direct impact on IT Managers, Storage Architects and IT Support staff. It is describing something which some storage vendors have been doing for a while, although the te...

  • The Future of Education - Hybrid Learning

    The age of traditional learning is long gone. How many times have you learnt a new subject recently and relied solely on sitting in a classroom to listen to a teacher? To take me as an example, I have recently taken up a new subject. My learning path includes web based training from the vendor’s website, YouTube videos, a hands-on lab with remote access, vendor documentation, Wikipedia, a LinkedIn...

  • Digital Transformation? Just wait until the Blockchain takes hold!

    As I write this in the latter months of 2016, I’m in the mood to make a prediction. In recent years we’ve seen the advent of "cloud", the advent of the "app" economy and the adoption of “smart” devices driven by the Internet of Things. However, whilst these things have been "powered" by the World Wide Web, we haven't really seen a fundamental change to the internet itself… until the arrival of Blo...

  • The NetApp, They Are A-Changin’

    A lot of people criticise NetApp for not moving with the times. Some of the newer start-ups like to claim that NetApp is a legacy company that is not in touch with today’s marketplace. Yet we all know that the company has a rich and deep heritage which spans nearly a quarter of a century, with over twenty of those years spent on the NASDAQ. So they must be doing something right. They also like to ...

    NetApp Insight Las Vegas 2016 Roundup               I was lucky enough to go to Las Vegas with the NetApp A-Team and attend the NetApp Insight Americas and APAC conference.

    Organisations are undergoing a journey through digital transformation that will transform the services they offer to their customers.

  • The Fact and Fiction of Cognitive Computing – Part 1

    Nuclear disaster, asteroid strike, super-volcanic eruption; all of these are recognised ELE’s (Extinction Level Events) that could spell doom for human civilisation as we know it. So, when Professor Stephen Hawking adds cognitive computing to the list of things that could destroy humankind, how seriously should we take the claim? Surely the benefits that such technologies promise must outweigh any...

  • Making hybrid cloud work for your customers

    According to research by Markets and Markets, hybrid cloud is set to grow by more than 20% per annum until 2021. This is a significant uptake in a relatively short period of time, representing a great opportunity for Arrow’s partners. As a word of caution though, industry research also suggests that a high percentage of organisations don’t get hybrid cloud right at the first attempt – wasting time...

  • Drowning in content? It’s plain sailing using the VMM

    Having recently attended a very wet music festival, trudging through the mud to watch one of my favourite bands, I had a thought… this is exactly how I feel trying to find an answer on the internet!   I think it’s safe to say we are all too familiar with the struggle of being knee deep in content and wading through portals, platforms and web pages to find what we’re looking for. And if we are bein...
