Top Stories by Mat Mathews

If you’ve been following us on the blog or on social media, you know that we announced our partnership with Big Data platform provider Cloudera last month. And, that a few months ago, our own Ed Henry demonstrated how to construct Big Data fabrics that easily integrate with systems like OpenStack and Cloudera during an installation of SDxCentral’s DemoFriday series. That webinar was recently published on SDxCentral’s website. You can watch the full presentation here to see the next generation of data fabrics in action. Enjoy!

Big Data & Datacenter Development By @MatMathews | @CloudExpo [#BigData]

Big Data Is Driving Datacenter Infrastructure Development You may have seen last week that we partnered with Cloudera, certifying the Plexxi Switch on Cloudera’s Enterprise 5 platform. This partnership, while exciting for us and our partners, plays a larger role in the IT landscape as a whole.

He cites the key challenge as not finding somewhere to store all the data (e.g... (more)

Plexxi Pulse — VMworld 2014 is Right Around the Corner

We’re a few short days away from VMworld’s return to the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Our team will be in booth 747 (hence the jumbo-jet below),  to demo our products and answer any questions you might have about our products – including the new datacenter transport fabric and Big Data fabric. Stop by the booth or send us a tweet to @PlexxiInc and we’ll catch up for a quick chat.   You never know exactly what to expect at VMworld, but our own Mike Bushong took a few educated guesses this week on the Plexxi blog. We’ll revisit his thoughts after the conference to see where ... (more)
