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.
Below please find a few of our top picks for our favorite news articles of
the week. Have a great weekend!

innovators and thought leaders from businesses, government agencies and
academia. We will be exhibiting at the last installment of the Immersions
conference in Boston on March 26 at the Hynes Convention Center. Come see
Plexxi in action and to talk with our team about the next era of IT. You can

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. According to an article this week by Arthur
Cole of Enterprise Networking Planet, this move embodies Cole’s belief that

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)
