The vAdmin's Future

The vAdmin's Future Dell Technologies Forum is a one-day event featuring all seven of Dell’s technologies in one place.  The San Francisco Forum had Pat Gelsinger keynote.  Hearing Pat on stage, I couldn’t help but think about all the potential our members have.

The “Next Big Thing” for Database Performance   I spend most of my weeks talking to VMware customers about applications that they want to  perform better. It’s probably not a surprise that the majority of these conversations revolve around databases: ERP, CRM, EMR, BI, and an assortment of other fun acronyms. What’s interesting is that even the organizations who are already using high-end hardware -- including all-flash arrays -- wonder where they can find the “next big thing” to aid them in IT’s ongoing saga to deliver greater business value and help their users be more productive.   The primary bottleneck that these administrators and engineers are ...
