…you know the rest.
(What…were you thinking I’d go with some old Mark Twain quote? Talk about unoriginal…)
Since the initial post about NetApp Insight 2016 (in retrospect) that launched this site, I’ve always maintained the best of intentions to keep things fresh with multiple, technical-oriented posts. Life sometimes, though, doesn’t always like to line up with the same timetable we set for ourselves.
Instead, it results in another introspective type post 🙂
At the end of 2016, I concluded the chapter of my career where things had really taken off for me at a local, Atlanta-based technology consulting firm. After six years there and having the opportunity to begin building my own personal brand, learn from some of the greatest mentors the industry has ever known, and more importantly, create wonderful, lasting friendships, the time had come to make a decision regarding the next step in my career journey.
Whenever we get around to any of the key tech conferences throughout the year, it seems that one man in particular always has some of the best news to share as part of his keynote.
That man is none other than NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang.
Whether it’s the announcement of Project Holodeck, Max-Q Design, or a myriad of advancements regarding the future of GPU computing for AI, Deep Learning and autonomous vehicles, NVIDIA never ceases to disappoint when given the opportunity to step onto any stage. Read More
We are now a little bit over a week removed from NetApp Insight 2016. This was by far the best iteration of the conference that I’ve experienced in now having attended five consecutive years. An unprecedented sixteen new products were announced, spear-headed by next-generation hardware platforms, new cloud-centric offerings, and the next version of NetApp’s flagship operating system, ONTAP 9.1. There definitely will be no shortage of content that will accompany these new products as they are released in the months to come, as well as even more exciting news that’s guaranteed to solidify that the success of NetApp over the past year is far more than just a flash in the pan. While many others are trying to collect themselves and figure out how to convince customers that “flash changes everything”, NetApp is busy redefining the entire flash landscape to ensure the journey towards the next-generation data center is a seamless and strategic one.
