Re: Making a Transition Requires Continued Focus - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/142...
"I agree. I can spin up a dev / test server in about 5 minutes. This server will be configured with the exact specs that I need/want. It's a huge difference over what we used to do." - Eric D. Brown

"This is perfectly said. I recall my first Novell Network experience. It wasn't pretty and was quite confusing. It took me (and others) weeks to get that network up and running with the help of Novell certified professionals. Today, I could stand that same network up in less than a day due to the simplified nature of the tech and tools." - Eric D. Brown

"Well said Paul." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Does Convergence Require New Skills? - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/143...
"I think I agree with you Scott. Planning and selecting converged platforms can be quite different than 'old' platforms / technologies. I do think there are some skills upgrades needed at the centralized location and/or data center to help manage the converged systems but I don't think they are drastically different." - Eric D. Brown

"Absolutely!" - Eric D. Brown

"Agreed Gene." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Big Data and Data Center Operations - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/122...
"True. The real challenge for companies is to see through the buzz and find the real systems/technologies/vendors that can deliver real savings." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Optimized Networks and Distributed Data Make Financial Markets Work - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/135...
"Yep...I'd be very hard pressed to name an industry that wasn't mostly driven by IT." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Are You Sure Your Data Can Be Recovered? - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/129...
"I agree with Pete...probably the latter." - Eric D. Brown

"It wouldn't remove the problem, but it could help for sure." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Are You Sure Your Data Can Be Recovered? - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/129...
"I would agree with that. If you weren't anxious, you don't really know how bad you need DR." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Data Centralization + Branch Convergence = Win/Win - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/132...
"Completely agree. The 35% cost savings should be plenty of reason to start looking at this approach." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Optimized Networks and Distributed Data Make Financial Markets Work - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/135...
"From my experience, the 'previous' technology was top notch and the best in the business. Pretty impressive to get speed advantages over the best." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Optimized Networks and Distributed Data Make Financial Markets Work - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/135...
""Every company is in the IT business..." This is true, especially in the financial world. The markets today are all about IT." - Eric D. Brown

"Interesting story and thank for sharing. This manipulation most likely happens more than we think..unfortunate for the guy that got caught...he can't be the only one doing this." - Eric D. Brown
Re: In an Instant: Recovering Data as a Whole Picture - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/138...
"I think we've all struggled with backup and recovery forever. The idea of instance recovery is a good one." - Eric D. Brown
Re: In an Instant: Recovering Data as a Whole Picture - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/138...
"True Joel but I would worry about these multiple originals becoming 'desynchronized' in some manner. That would keep me performing traditional backups." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Big Data Needs the Proper Infrastructure - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/140...
"Converged infrastructure can play large role in big data success by making it easy to add additional processing power, storage and networking capabilities." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Agility, Simplicity and Scalability - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/139...
"Agreed Scott. Convergence can help with all three areas but scalability is one of that can be drastically changed with converged infrastructure in the branch office." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Are You Sure Your Data Can Be Recovered? - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/129...
""You can't take your production systems out of production" While true, there are companies out there that do this often to test their DR plans. Facebook for example is well known for completely 'turning off' one of their data centers to test their DR plans (http://bit.ly/15gwGLX) . While most companies can't go that far, a robust DR plan and testing process should be thought through." - Eric D. Brown

"Good find and good stats. Definitely shows the lack of confidence for sure." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Are You Sure Your Data Can Be Recovered? - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/129...
"I guess I'm not really surprised either, but it makes me a little concerned to think what would happen to all 'my' data that lives out there with all of these companies in the event of a disaster." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Optimizing the Hybrid Infrastructure - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/131...
"Visibility is they key to managing the data center and even more important for managing cloud infrastructure. If you don't have visibility with cloud systems, you don't really know what the cloud vendors are doing with your systems or data. Ron says it best with "You need the visibility to see what is going on and how everything is working together"" - Eric D. Brown
Re: Data Centralization + Branch Convergence = Win/Win - http://www.convergeyourbranch.com/132...
"Centralizing data should absolutely be a part of convergence planning and implementation. As we see from the Credit Suisse example, there's are savings to be had." - Eric D. Brown
