The Hot Aisle – Object Storage, Software Defined, & Open Source w/ Manuvir Das – Episode 9
Welcome back! This week Senior Vice President of EMC’s Advanced Software Division (ASD) Manuvir Das joins us on The Hot Aisle to discuss all things Object Storage, Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), Why he’s choosing to embrace Open Source for various product offerings, and he also opens the Kimono a bit to talk about Project Caspian! We discuss how Enterprises can begin to embrace object storage as the mass file storage of the future – using existing API’s or embracing the pervasive S3 protocol from Amazon on platforms that can go inside their data center. We also discuss where file and object overlap, and the challenges that are faced with file once you look at customers from a global perspective with geographically dispersed data centers. Manuvir’s teams also include the team behind CoprHD, which is now in full read/write mode on GitHub – he discusses the thought process behind going Open, and how he hopes the enterprise version ViPR can benefit from it. Thanks for joining as always, and don’t hesitate to hit up myself @intheDC or my co-host @brentpiatti with questions, topics, guest suggestions or otherwise. Tune in next week for Episdode 10 – it’s gunna be Awesomesauce!
