00:01:39.960 –> 00:01:41.070
Jirah Cox: And i’m yeah yep.

00:01:41.460 –> 00:01:48.300
Andy Whiteside: yep yep yeah that was that was a good one, I love that shirt I still where it’s a non dorky I T shirt.

00:01:48.660 –> 00:01:48.990
Jirah Cox: Total.

00:01:49.560 –> 00:01:50.310
Andy Whiteside: Well, I love.

00:01:50.340 –> 00:01:51.120
Andy Whiteside: Probably love those.

00:01:51.330 –> 00:01:54.630
Jirah Cox: will consider the source there right we you and I would consider it non dorky right.

00:01:54.990 –> 00:01:56.370
Jirah Cox: Which is or something.

00:01:57.270 –> 00:01:57.570
Andy Whiteside: You know.

00:01:58.020 –> 00:01:58.620
Jirah Cox: that’s pretty good.

00:01:58.950 –> 00:02:03.240
Andy Whiteside: here’s the way i’ll say I get compliments when I wear that shirt on it being a cool shirt so I assume it’s pretty cool shirt.

00:02:03.570 –> 00:02:05.250
Jirah Cox: Okay i’m still waiting, but that’s that’s okay.

00:02:05.880 –> 00:02:06.240

00:02:07.980 –> 00:02:19.470
Andy Whiteside: With us are the guys from artists artists, is a sponsor of next we’ve got the Jeff Jeff melnick and Randy brown from artists they’re kind of our special guests collaborators today because.

00:02:19.800 –> 00:02:26.130
Andy Whiteside: of our partnership with them as INTEGRA as well as the work they’re doing with new tonics and as we go through these things guys feel.

00:02:26.430 –> 00:02:33.840
Andy Whiteside: free to chime in and give us your opinions ask questions, and you know just help collaborate I did all the way up here, I did listen to one of the citrix podcast which.

00:02:34.110 –> 00:02:39.810
Andy Whiteside: You know I like to say they saw us doing podcasts and decided to do podcasts to that may not be true, but it sure does feel like it.

00:02:40.770 –> 00:02:42.390
Andy Whiteside: I love the fact that we have.

00:02:42.420 –> 00:02:57.990
Andy Whiteside: People from insides INTEGRA and inside new tonics and inside the industry, and we all collaborate on these that way it definitely comes across as a conversation and that’s a big part of podcasting for me is get a bunch of smart people and let them talk.

00:02:59.370 –> 00:02:59.760

00:03:00.900 –> 00:03:02.460
Andy Whiteside: I just asked all the dumb questions.

00:03:04.500 –> 00:03:13.800
Andy Whiteside: Well okay so next 2021 gyro we’re going to go from number 10 down to number one we’re going to go from number one to number 10 how, how are you staging this for us.

00:03:14.070 –> 00:03:20.970
Jirah Cox: Oh, I should do a quick start here so honestly we’re just working off of like things that I enjoyed from our finances this week.

00:03:22.200 –> 00:03:31.230
Jirah Cox: If you’re listening to this and it’s at all, close to the episode release date, where we should say you can definitely still go register for the next platform, you can watch all the recaps got.

00:03:31.740 –> 00:03:38.610
Jirah Cox: At least a couple of weeks to do that right so don’t sleep on it too long definitely feel free to go do that they’re pretty Nice and condensed concise, I think.

00:03:39.030 –> 00:03:46.110
Jirah Cox: All the keynotes are about 90 minutes or less so you can kind of get in get all the highlights and get out so definitely do that and go straight to the source.

00:03:46.710 –> 00:03:57.960
Jirah Cox: If you’re just so busy that you have to listen to us replay that for you then welcome and i’m sorry, but now, this is gonna be my notes on what I found, like most notable.

00:03:59.250 –> 00:04:06.810
Andy Whiteside: So directly, I asked you that question, but then i’m going to leave you with two things number one we did we did a podcast recording what two three months ago about.

00:04:07.500 –> 00:04:17.430
Andy Whiteside: Something new, which is, which was part of next i’m sure and we’ve been sitting on a podcast that I haven’t hit the publish button that one I can now hit the publish button on right.

00:04:18.390 –> 00:04:22.260
Jirah Cox: He will be replacing it today right, this is actually rehash all the same features.

00:04:23.820 –> 00:04:28.530
Andy Whiteside: Well i’m still going to do it because it’s great content, however, I think, so what we’re talking about the latest version of ios.

00:04:29.400 –> 00:04:34.380
Jirah Cox: Right yeah yeah so of course it yet some of the features from a six hour part of the headline of the show for sure.

00:04:34.920 –> 00:04:42.120
Andy Whiteside: yeah so we’ve got that podcast guys so expect to see two podcasts get published this one was the you know the what’s new and ios deep dive that we did.

00:04:42.870 –> 00:04:52.410
Andy Whiteside: month or so ago that we’ve been kind of sitting on for this one, so, as the latest version, give me the number again and and just give me like the top two or three or four things people need to know about that.

00:04:52.830 –> 00:05:03.990
Jirah Cox: No, yes, oh six from the stage right the team was we’re all proud of over 50% HP adoption right so like so many nodes in the wild now or running HQ hypervisor.

00:05:05.100 –> 00:05:11.190
Jirah Cox: As it shows you know enterprise adoption enterprise readiness validation with our partners right like the artist folks.

00:05:12.360 –> 00:05:16.380
Jirah Cox: As well as, of course, a huge effort for the show with red hat right for both.

00:05:17.400 –> 00:05:28.380
Jirah Cox: For both open shift container platform, but also rel as an os to run games as well, so that one, you know as a huge man it’s been part of my career and attacks right is working with customers.

00:05:29.340 –> 00:05:41.340
Jirah Cox: On the you know I want to run you can’t Next, I want to run HIV, but I wish red hat and tactics had a tighter joint support model right and now we’ve got that that’s a big objection remover.

00:05:41.670 –> 00:05:50.190
Andy Whiteside: Let me translate the acronyms real quick for the people who may not know them so AOL stands for the Acropolis operating system which is really your storage operating system, maybe, similar to what.

00:05:50.460 –> 00:05:57.690
Andy Whiteside: Net APP has what they’re on tap right that’s that’s your storage solution that can run on multiple hypervisor is that a fair way to explain that.

00:05:58.170 –> 00:06:01.920
Jirah Cox: Well, just had management there as well, right because there’s also like prison runs within that as well.

00:06:02.340 –> 00:06:10.290
Andy Whiteside: Right and then, when you mentioned a while ago that’s your specific Linux distro that you include with a ios people don’t have to run it.

00:06:10.980 –> 00:06:26.490
Andy Whiteside: They can use the you know vmware and others but mostly vmware but Acropolis hypervisor hv you know, five years ago would have been like a I don’t know, but now most of your solution is rolled out at least 50% or more on top of your hypervisor and it’s an entitlement nailed it yep.

00:06:26.640 –> 00:06:35.850
Jirah Cox: hundred percent so every node in the world can run hypervisor view choice right V sphere hyper V, and of course our own HP is included at no cost.

00:06:37.350 –> 00:06:42.540
Jirah Cox: on any platform right whether that’s our nodes HP and Dell whenever nodes Fujitsu your choice.

00:06:43.470 –> 00:06:58.680
Andy Whiteside: I have one specific hypervisor to ask about and it’s going to lead us to our next topic which is the guys from guys from Fort lauderdale and new tannic send their big announcement, but xen server you guys aren’t still producing a supported version of ios ons introverted.

00:06:59.130 –> 00:07:00.630
Jirah Cox: Not to my knowledge, not right now, no.

00:07:01.980 –> 00:07:04.080
Jirah Cox: mostly due to demand, as I understand it.

00:07:04.650 –> 00:07:17.100
Andy Whiteside: yeah and there’s some technical challenges there it’s a great hypervisor for niche use cases but for enterprise use case it’s it’s good for good enough for vdi but other than that it’s not a great fit so it makes sense okay so before we go on to go ahead, sorry.

00:07:17.310 –> 00:07:19.230
Jirah Cox: And, of course, he is included at no cost so.

00:07:19.470 –> 00:07:25.440
Andy Whiteside: yeah well and it’s so much more and widely used and supported and there’s communities about it, you know why, would you.

00:07:25.830 –> 00:07:33.810
Andy Whiteside: Why would you throw it on zoom servers really other than having to put little plugin on which works great that you guys, I wrote with citrix why why even bother so.

00:07:34.740 –> 00:07:47.070
Andy Whiteside: So, before I go into talking about that announcements, with the citrix guys, I want to hear from the rest of the panel Harvey and Jeff and Randy any any thoughts around the latest operating system, and what that means to you.

00:07:48.870 –> 00:08:09.480
Harvey Green: Oh, I mean for me it’s just the latest edition of something that’s already been great so you know, being able to take the new stuff that we’ll talk more about as as this continues to go on and that we that we talked about and I guess, we can call it the hidden podcast.

00:08:11.760 –> 00:08:24.240
Harvey Green: You know you’ll you’ll hear a lot more about the features, the new stuff that’s coming with the new version of ios i’m excited about it, but you know, the fact that we’ve also had a hidden podcast for a while, so this is i’ve been excited about it for all.

00:08:34.230 –> 00:08:35.490
Jirah Cox: Andy come up everybody.

00:08:36.000 –> 00:08:36.810

00:08:38.430 –> 00:08:43.890
Andy Whiteside: When i’m in the hotel lobby, as I mentioned, and there’s music it’s kind of a trendy lobby, so I don’t can you guys hear the music at all.

00:08:44.310 –> 00:08:44.670
Harvey Green: Not not.

00:08:44.730 –> 00:08:44.880

00:08:46.500 –> 00:08:57.960
Andy Whiteside: Okay, well then, I won’t worry about doing that again okay so from the artists perspective anything from you guys in terms of the the latest ios release that jumps out to you either with your product integration or other regions.

00:08:58.890 –> 00:09:05.520
Randy Brown: So we’re real excited about that, obviously, the new version of it, our solution doesn’t really get affected by that because we’re pointing at.

00:09:06.300 –> 00:09:19.560
Randy Brown: New tannic file separately outside of the operating system so it’s great for you tactics and you guys and the rest of the world, but for us it’s it’s a nice feature it’s not really that integral to what we do.

00:09:21.120 –> 00:09:21.360
Andy Whiteside: Okay.

00:09:22.440 –> 00:09:28.500
Andy Whiteside: Okay, so die right if I went to your website, yesterday I would have found something related to next.

00:09:29.070 –> 00:09:35.460
Andy Whiteside: Announcement around the citrix piece, where you know coming out of the gate newt annex and citrix kind of completed each other’s stories.

00:09:36.120 –> 00:09:49.800
Andy Whiteside: citrix needed that infrastructure play to compete against vmware and need an infrastructure play that was both scalable up and down and cost effective simplified easy to manage supported all that good stuff and you guys needed that vdi workload is a little.

00:09:51.060 –> 00:10:03.660
Andy Whiteside: challenge there along the way, where the organization started, you know kind of doing their own things, maybe kinda sorta or at least perceived and then that’s not real at all it’s perceived, but with dot next you guys made a big announcement with citrix you want to cover that.

00:10:04.320 –> 00:10:12.870
Jirah Cox: yeah I mean I would use a My analogy of like just sort of like an even tighter handshake right between citrix has been a great workload on your next your next been a great.

00:10:13.230 –> 00:10:23.370
Jirah Cox: platform for citrix for years, none of that is even close to new customers have had fantastic experiences with that and so that stands to only even get better right with.

00:10:24.390 –> 00:10:40.350
Jirah Cox: Some of the mechanics of the announcement right things like even tighter joint support availability even better roadmap co-development constant like that, so you know you standing off even what tiny little birds there might have been now it’s even even smoother experience.

00:10:42.960 –> 00:10:55.770
Andy Whiteside: yeah and it’s great for us, I mean I literally must have had, I must have had 10 people email me within 30 minutes talking about you know how much how this was going to be great for our business as we relate to trying to be the best citrix mechanics partner we can be.

00:10:56.520 –> 00:11:04.830
Jirah Cox: yeah for sure I didn’t email you because I knew we’d be talking about it but yeah for sure I mean it’s squarely in your wheelhouse right, so the convergence of some great technology and.

00:11:05.070 –> 00:11:11.760
Andy Whiteside: And i’ll add to that we we love hyper convergence for desktop and APP virtualization and most workloads really at this point.

00:11:13.410 –> 00:11:23.190
Andy Whiteside: But new tonics and some of the things it brings to the table around like files and true scalability and the architecture with having the control vm on every single node.

00:11:24.030 –> 00:11:38.610
Andy Whiteside: and being able to support lots of different hardware manufacturers is just the most beautiful story in the citrix slash hyper converge on premises and now even in the cloud story Harvey this is near and dear to you i’m sure you want to jump in.

00:11:39.720 –> 00:11:51.900
Harvey Green: Well, I mean you know as as I was sitting and reading about it, and you know that is you know citrix is saying Oh, we recommend the tactics, is the best place bus platform for you to run on right and.

00:11:52.470 –> 00:11:59.880
Harvey Green: And the tactics is kind of doing the same thing oh yeah we recommend citrix is the best solution for you know end user computing.

00:12:00.600 –> 00:12:10.860
Harvey Green: And you know I look at that and Andy you and I have this conversation like a lot and have been having this conversation a lot, but this is, this is what we’ve been talking about for a long time.

00:12:12.120 –> 00:12:12.450
Andy Whiteside: Right.

00:12:12.750 –> 00:12:19.860
Harvey Green: um and I won’t you know pretend that we, we were the ones who made them get together and do this but.

00:12:19.950 –> 00:12:20.460
Jirah Cox: My friend.

00:12:20.850 –> 00:12:22.860
Harvey Green: holly we’ve been telling our customers to.

00:12:22.860 –> 00:12:33.510
Harvey Green: do this for a pretty long time now, so it is great to see the synergy is great to see the teamwork there and collaboration.

00:12:33.960 –> 00:12:37.110
Harvey Green: We know that they’ve been good partners for a long time, this is.

00:12:37.590 –> 00:12:48.120
Harvey Green: I guess it made me feel old to say it bright, but I was you know talking to people and they were like well what’s the real what’s the real big deal behind this and i’m like well.

00:12:48.660 –> 00:12:54.780
Harvey Green: They they’ve been you know they’ve been going out for a while, but not a going steady they’re telling everybody that they’re together now.

00:12:56.340 –> 00:13:01.950
Andy Whiteside: Well, they went out for a while and then they broke up a little kind of sorta now they’re back together and they’re going to get married.

00:13:02.370 –> 00:13:06.360
Andy Whiteside: yeah Harvey I think it was the colder damper whether tho those make so.

00:13:10.050 –> 00:13:12.480
Harvey Green: yeah I got a lot to learn on that.

00:13:13.740 –> 00:13:16.050
Andy Whiteside: So, again going over the artist guys does this.

00:13:17.610 –> 00:13:19.530
Andy Whiteside: Does this mean anything to you guys.

00:13:21.000 –> 00:13:31.290
Randy Brown: it’s great news for for our great partners INTEGRA so and and eugenics as well really doesn’t affect us much, but we do like the sort of that remote worker story, I think we fit into that.

00:13:31.650 –> 00:13:39.930
Randy Brown: Along with you know the the joint solution between you guys so overall we it’s great specifically doesn’t really touch us much.

00:13:40.890 –> 00:13:48.390
Andy Whiteside: Well, as as you guys know i’m not shy, to say something I love what you just said, because it does totally tie into the end user compute story.

00:13:48.780 –> 00:13:55.050
Andy Whiteside: I don’t like that you said remote worker, because that is like the biggest nemesis of citrix that and total cost of ownership.

00:13:55.590 –> 00:14:04.470
Andy Whiteside: The remote worker piece it’s all workers, it just so happens to work when your remote and you just gave me an opportunity to bring up my opportunity to get on top of my soapbox.

00:14:05.640 –> 00:14:08.490
Andy Whiteside: Car good customers don’t use it for remote work they use it for all work.

00:14:08.610 –> 00:14:09.240
So we love.

00:14:10.320 –> 00:14:10.680
Harvey Green: Well, so.

00:14:11.130 –> 00:14:12.060
Andy Whiteside: The tedx enables that.

00:14:12.630 –> 00:14:18.300
Harvey Green: right one, and one of the concepts Andy that we’ve talked about again for a long time, is that when you.

00:14:18.780 –> 00:14:34.800
Harvey Green: actually have virtual workloads and then use a computer and things like that your your workloads are primarily House in a data Center or in a cloud or in a colo or something like that so everybody’s a remote worker nobody sitting in the data Center and working like that so.

00:14:35.520 –> 00:14:38.220
Andy Whiteside: If you’re not physically sitting in the data Center you’re a remote worker.

00:14:38.220 –> 00:14:38.850
Harvey Green: Your remote.

00:14:38.940 –> 00:14:42.660
Andy Whiteside: yeah and should we should we tell everybody the cloud is just somebody else’s data Center.

00:14:45.420 –> 00:14:49.200
Harvey Green: I would love to say that that that mystery is already solved, but.

00:14:49.230 –> 00:14:50.700
Harvey Green: you’d be surprised.

00:14:51.300 –> 00:14:52.470
Andy Whiteside: They would be surprised.

00:14:53.580 –> 00:14:59.700
Andy Whiteside: All right now gyro was that two of your top 10 or is there a whole nother 10 eight or 10.

00:15:00.330 –> 00:15:05.730
Jirah Cox: wow yeah i’m not saying the numbering we’re probably halfway through at least the.

00:15:07.410 –> 00:15:20.220
Jirah Cox: I think very exciting right was with the ios platform right we bring in vpc virtual private cloud networking, the ability to do to do network.

00:15:21.030 –> 00:15:29.310
Jirah Cox: creations right there within the platform really easily very simply to say, I want to have virtual networks that live within the platform that can that can.

00:15:29.670 –> 00:15:38.640
Jirah Cox: Give me application portability, you know, so that when I move a vm from site to site be I don’t have to worry about you know repeating it don’t worry about how the network’s going to work.

00:15:39.930 –> 00:15:43.410
Jirah Cox: So that part I think it’s super exciting right so it’s part of flow networking.

00:15:44.610 –> 00:15:47.460
Jirah Cox: giving you more application portability right across clouds.

00:15:48.330 –> 00:15:49.200
Harvey Green: So that.

00:15:49.440 –> 00:15:53.610
Harvey Green: That correct me if i’m wrong gyrated is what I would call a big deal.

00:15:54.000 –> 00:15:54.810
Jirah Cox: it’s a pretty big deal.

00:15:54.840 –> 00:15:55.830
Jirah Cox: very excited about.

00:15:58.170 –> 00:16:06.570
Harvey Green: Being able to have consistency across platforms across data centers public cloud private cloud right that that is a big deal.

00:16:06.930 –> 00:16:08.130
Harvey Green: yeah that’s.

00:16:08.670 –> 00:16:21.840
Harvey Green: Capital via tripped up when they you know, try to run down technology like this and be able to host it and you know the whole hybrid multi cloud conversation with this.

00:16:22.320 –> 00:16:33.660
Harvey Green: You know now changes, a lot because you’ve got the ability to be able to carry over settings and networks between one location to the other that’s a big deal.

00:16:34.110 –> 00:16:34.440
Jirah Cox: yeah.

00:16:34.860 –> 00:16:35.610
Andy Whiteside: No, I mean like what.

00:16:35.790 –> 00:16:43.620
Jirah Cox: I don’t know 80% of the manpower of Dr planning is all about figuring out do a VIP do I stretch my sub nets do I.

00:16:44.820 –> 00:16:56.310
Jirah Cox: move sub nets, you know how we actually handle that getting users connect to where they need to get to when I can just move the network with the vm so easily boy, that is just a big game changer right.

00:16:57.870 –> 00:17:07.980
Andy Whiteside: yeah because there’s another secret it’s not the cloud it’s clouds and we got to find a way to make at least two of them work together in order to be funded or available in a disaster moments.

00:17:08.040 –> 00:17:08.250

00:17:09.360 –> 00:17:19.980
Jirah Cox: yeah well and also, even without even moving stuff um you know hey how about a Dev environment that matches my production IP scheme but it’s in a bubble and can’t break anything right like there’s so many powerful use cases.

00:17:21.300 –> 00:17:22.020
Harvey Green: Absolutely.

00:17:25.080 –> 00:17:37.500
Andy Whiteside: Okay um gyro let’s an artist guys feel free just to start timing in i’ll leave pregnant pauses in there, if you want to you want to talk about how your product is enabled or supports any of these things a gyro brings up.

00:17:39.810 –> 00:17:41.250
Andy Whiteside: Okay, so direct oh good.

00:17:42.150 –> 00:17:44.790
Harvey Green: I was gonna say before you jump to the next one.

00:17:45.900 –> 00:18:04.050
Harvey Green: i’ve got one for him all and see how he reacts to it, I had a little I had a little I guess bet going that uh I thought that, when that next hit they were going to release the titanic’s clusters on azure to GA did I when my bit.

00:18:04.410 –> 00:18:06.120
Jirah Cox: Like I know somebody who’s been asking about that.

00:18:08.010 –> 00:18:09.270
Jirah Cox: Oh, it was Andy that’s right.

00:18:11.460 –> 00:18:17.250
Jirah Cox: No yeah so for sure, so they clusters on azure a think the technical from his ear right so.

00:18:18.570 –> 00:18:22.290
Jirah Cox: Early access right announced at at next.

00:18:22.350 –> 00:18:23.730
Harvey Green: that’s halfway i’ll take it.

00:18:24.570 –> 00:18:25.440
Jirah Cox: close enough right, I think.

00:18:26.580 –> 00:18:29.400
Andy Whiteside: you’re going into all that i’m thinking Okay, this is a curveball a slider.

00:18:29.730 –> 00:18:31.470
Andy Whiteside: No assault, you do have a softball.

00:18:31.950 –> 00:18:37.560
Harvey Green: Well, so I didn’t because I didn’t necessarily know how it was going to end up.

00:18:39.750 –> 00:18:48.270
Harvey Green: I had, I had a weird that next week that got thrown all kinds of curveballs so I had no idea where that was going.

00:18:49.830 –> 00:18:55.170
Jirah Cox: So so so that’s that’s audience sympathy right there Harvey right you’re learning, along with the audience as.

00:18:55.170 –> 00:18:55.980
Harvey Green: Well that’s right.

00:18:57.600 –> 00:18:58.890
Andy Whiteside: I did on every podcast.

00:19:00.180 –> 00:19:15.750
Andy Whiteside: question for you gyro what what parts of as like okay so Is this true new tonics on top of bare metal machines within the azure data centers I think that’s how it is an aws or Is this something similar, but not exactly that.

00:19:17.100 –> 00:19:22.260
Jirah Cox: No, I believe it’s I believe it’s consuming you know real servers in azure serving as the next nodes.

00:19:22.830 –> 00:19:23.100

00:19:24.180 –> 00:19:39.960
Andy Whiteside: question for you, then I assume I know the answer to this, but I never want to assume Does that mean, I get the entitlements of multi session windows 10 or 11 On top of that gear because it’s in azure then microsoft’s world where I don’t get it anywhere else.

00:19:41.490 –> 00:19:46.080
Jirah Cox: yeah I don’t know you could I could, I can say you get the elements of what ALS brides.

00:19:47.250 –> 00:19:53.490
Jirah Cox: Beyond that, the probably a great question to get an answer to write for sure from someone with a Microsoft COM email address.

00:19:55.740 –> 00:20:04.110
Andy Whiteside: or via you’ve probably asked that question of people on on while this was coming did you get a I guess we can’t get a definitive answer, we need to go get a definitive answer right.

00:20:04.170 –> 00:20:07.110
Harvey Green: We need to go get a definitive answer.

00:20:08.580 –> 00:20:18.000
Harvey Green: My guess is that the answer is going to be no, but we will find out i’m actually interested I think that’s a great question.

00:20:18.120 –> 00:20:21.930
Jirah Cox: i’m curious I mean if it’s usually defined as an azure entitlement, then I mean yeah.

00:20:22.230 –> 00:20:23.550
Jirah Cox: So i’m so logical they’re.

00:20:24.000 –> 00:20:34.740
Andy Whiteside: coming into this, I was under the impression that not only could you get subscription based windows licenses that counted under your m 365 agreement, but the Multi session would apply to but let’s.

00:20:34.920 –> 00:20:43.050
Andy Whiteside: throw in the disclaimer that that’s an assumption, and we will go find the answer let’s let’s follow up on that one.

00:20:43.950 –> 00:20:45.810
Jirah Cox: shocker that we’re not official licensing advice.

00:20:50.370 –> 00:20:54.030
Harvey Green: I don’t know why why aren’t you an expert on Microsoft licensing.

00:20:54.600 –> 00:20:54.900
Jirah Cox: well.

00:20:55.260 –> 00:20:56.100
Harvey Green: I don’t understand.

00:20:58.410 –> 00:21:00.720
Jirah Cox: Why we’re not going to comment on that we’re not going to come after mark.

00:21:03.060 –> 00:21:04.230
Jirah Cox: licensing experts are.

00:21:04.380 –> 00:21:05.670
Jirah Cox: incredibly valuable people.

00:21:05.730 –> 00:21:08.310
Jirah Cox: Right, they are super they do, they serve, an important role.

00:21:09.870 –> 00:21:13.920
Jirah Cox: i’ve yet to wake up in the morning go like I want to become a licensing expert.

00:21:15.690 –> 00:21:16.020
Andy Whiteside: yeah.

00:21:17.070 –> 00:21:22.410
Andy Whiteside: yeah I have a history in the past, where I was arguing with a Lotus notes administrator that was trying to.

00:21:23.250 –> 00:21:28.560
Andy Whiteside: Say that accessing Lotus notes running on a windows server did not require server towels.

00:21:29.250 –> 00:21:39.570
Andy Whiteside: And i’m like well it’s using Microsoft tcp IP so it must everything that’s using my PC I must and we went I mean I went years and years with that I don’t I don’t know whatever happened in that situation I.

00:21:40.710 –> 00:21:53.610
Andy Whiteside: went to work somewhere else but i’m sure microsoft’s going to get their money, I and I don’t think in this scenario I don’t think this diminishes their ability to make money, so I think the answer is going to be yes, but again I think it’s a it’s an assumption at the moment.

00:21:56.100 –> 00:21:58.800
Harvey Green: yeah completely interested in them.

00:22:00.690 –> 00:22:15.090
Harvey Green: So dire i’ve talked to my daughter about the power of and or when it comes to clusters on azure can we add, and you can use the vpc functionality, we just talked about.

00:22:16.560 –> 00:22:17.970
Jirah Cox: My understanding is yes.

00:22:18.990 –> 00:22:19.230
Jirah Cox: yeah.

00:22:19.290 –> 00:22:20.340
Harvey Green: that’s that’s what I thought.

00:22:23.310 –> 00:22:37.770
Jirah Cox: We should watch that closely right because you may think it’s not fully launched right it’s still kind of finishing up his time in the oven, but but yeah maybe maybe yeah well what is that unlock from a customer Problem Solving standpoint rv to use the PCs in clusters on azure.

00:22:38.730 –> 00:22:51.930
Harvey Green: So I mean again just being able to keep consistency around your environments, I know, so one of the reasons that you probably have never heard me ask about clusters for azure before.

00:22:53.460 –> 00:23:04.860
Harvey Green: it’s because we’ve got customers who are definitely in azure, but we do have a good bit of customers who have already started making the whole hybrid.

00:23:05.310 –> 00:23:19.800
Harvey Green: Multi cloud journey or multi cloud journey, where they have multiple public cloud providers, and so this would be this would be a definite great thing for them a definite feature set that they would want access to so.

00:23:21.810 –> 00:23:33.090
Harvey Green: I am both curious and excited about how far this can be pushed and you know I know you say it’s still early access is still in the other but i’m already like let’s go, I want to do it.

00:23:34.950 –> 00:23:39.780
Jirah Cox: No, I agree it’s super exciting stuff well and and and to help.

00:23:43.620 –> 00:23:48.570
Jirah Cox: yeah to help, even with I kind of migrations right so six so even brings other new capabilities.

00:23:49.800 –> 00:24:00.030
Jirah Cox: Around to to hv right around stuff like sync rap metro you know automatic fail over the witnesses right so that ability to build a multi data Center.

00:24:00.450 –> 00:24:09.420
Jirah Cox: Application design, where you know you can have an entire datacenter go dark applications all just restart, on the other side, with no human intervention right in the middle of the night.

00:24:09.960 –> 00:24:22.950
Jirah Cox: it’s it’s really bringing radical levels of simplicity to customers that need that kind of higher level visibility, I can apply more data centers right as resources to solve this problem, how does the technology helped me, you know with that outcome.

00:24:25.350 –> 00:24:32.130
Andy Whiteside: I know we were promised we promised we’re gonna let the driver just run through his top 10 which we’ve struggled to do, as usual, because you know we just want to talk.

00:24:32.910 –> 00:24:34.410
Andy Whiteside: But let’s do this arctic’s.

00:24:34.440 –> 00:24:43.590
Andy Whiteside: our skies anything from the show and an element that you guys found interesting that we can maybe elaborate on that we haven’t covered so far.

00:24:44.040 –> 00:24:50.580
Randy Brown: yeah I mean i’d say it was the overall messaging that I found interesting that a lot of cios out there are.

00:24:51.720 –> 00:25:00.750
Randy Brown: tapering down their public cloud sort of plans and going to them where that hybrid model and our our solution fits well matt solution, whether it’s in.

00:25:01.890 –> 00:25:06.690
Randy Brown: sharepoint online on premise, whether you’re in new tactics, whether you’re on a file share somewhere.

00:25:07.080 –> 00:25:12.960
Randy Brown: We can handle that same situation, so I think i’d like the messaging I think that that our messaging is similar.

00:25:13.290 –> 00:25:19.260
Randy Brown: And I think it’s the way to go and not be tied into one particular thing have your information should be where it should be.

00:25:19.950 –> 00:25:30.510
Randy Brown: That makes the most sense versus going with some 100% one way or the other, so I thought that was very interesting that that’s what the keynote basically said a lot of, so I think we’re aligned with that I thought that was interesting.

00:25:31.380 –> 00:25:31.830
Jirah Cox: yeah that was.

00:25:32.910 –> 00:25:34.380
Jirah Cox: day one keenan right talked about.

00:25:35.490 –> 00:25:42.300
Jirah Cox: Some polling from cios and the forecast of applications moving into public cloud has dropped by 10% or something.

00:25:42.330 –> 00:25:44.970
Andy Whiteside: yeah what was the what was the driver.

00:25:46.890 –> 00:25:48.870
Jirah Cox: could be well multi factor right costs.

00:25:48.900 –> 00:25:54.270
Jirah Cox: Security last governance tosses way up there right security, governance also big players.

00:25:55.500 –> 00:25:57.180
Jirah Cox: Autonomy availability resiliency.

00:25:57.810 –> 00:26:02.190
Andy Whiteside: Any any wild card drivers to that that you didn’t expect, I mean the ones you just said or.

00:26:03.270 –> 00:26:07.290
Andy Whiteside: I wouldn’t say no brainers but they’re ones that you would expect to hear any were there any.

00:26:08.340 –> 00:26:09.600
Andy Whiteside: Any that were caught off guard.

00:26:11.010 –> 00:26:24.480
Jirah Cox: an anecdote I heard from another partner was they’re, seeing as many Apps move into public cloud, as they are seeing come back out it’s almost 5050 right which that that did kind of raise my eyebrows in terms of like wow the velocity kind of both ways right yeah.

00:26:24.900 –> 00:26:28.710
Andy Whiteside: Something like flow enable them to come and go, as you please.

00:26:30.180 –> 00:26:36.060
Jirah Cox: The flow networking, I can give you an application portability right part of our you know.

00:26:37.110 –> 00:26:47.160
Jirah Cox: Larger mandate, if you will, the heard from her from the main stage around you know building deploying running applications anywhere on any cloud right and helping you with that kind of freedom and mobility.

00:26:49.080 –> 00:26:58.140
Randy Brown: I would say it’s one other thing is the other factor that we’re seeing, especially in our European and South Africa, and most of Asia is the privacy laws there.

00:26:58.410 –> 00:27:07.020
Randy Brown: Such as gdpr where you have to store the clients data in their particular country or jurisdiction public cloud that can be difficult and tough to track.

00:27:07.530 –> 00:27:17.760
Randy Brown: So I think that’s probably also part of that 10% is that desire for the privacy of client data being close by and they’re in the right type of jurisdiction, so I think that’s another aspect of.

00:27:18.840 –> 00:27:24.930
Randy Brown: Not 100% not everyone going to cloud all the time, very quickly they’re they’re being sort of careful where they put that data.

00:27:26.340 –> 00:27:29.100
Andy Whiteside: And the only way to control your own destiny is to control that data right yep.

00:27:29.280 –> 00:27:30.150
Andy Whiteside: Truly controlling.

00:27:31.650 –> 00:27:46.140
Andy Whiteside: yep and I wonder how much of that is going into like co located where you own the gear inside the Rack or inside the cage he that’s good enough right versus little not, not only in the server itself, nor the hardware inside the server.

00:27:46.620 –> 00:27:54.210
Harvey Green: yeah I mean, at least at that point, you can answer it and physically put your hands on it that’s what it takes for people to be able to see that.

00:27:54.930 –> 00:28:07.860
Harvey Green: You know, when you have it in a public cloud servers you are not able to as easily say oh yeah it’s on this server on this drive you know it’s a lot different from that perspective.

00:28:09.090 –> 00:28:10.260
Jirah Cox: you’re totally right like.

00:28:11.730 –> 00:28:22.200
Jirah Cox: it’s a step some customers skip over right to go from well I don’t I don’t want to buy like a giant storage array every five years, and put it in my office, where I have flaky power and bad network.

00:28:22.710 –> 00:28:31.260
Jirah Cox: i’ll go straight to cloud it’s like well hold on wait a minute right a great colo in your city with a power bi ACI you know even.

00:28:31.740 –> 00:28:43.290
Jirah Cox: I coach customers right try to find clothes that are very flexible right, do you know, look at half rack agreements quarter records, because you can fit so much power in in a quarter rack and a half rack these days.

00:28:44.430 –> 00:28:44.790
Jirah Cox: You know.

00:28:44.850 –> 00:28:52.650
Jirah Cox: And and keep that optionality right that expand the ability as part of your agreement, and you can be very, very powerful and very, very cost effective.

00:28:54.030 –> 00:29:04.860
Jeff Melnick: yeah it doesn’t just sorry just to dovetail on what Randy was saying we definitely have customers again in Europe where because Microsoft is moving away from this or bring your own key idea.

00:29:05.550 –> 00:29:19.410
Jeff Melnick: Where you, you know the whole The keys for the encryption data they say, well, you can use our encryption keys now and, if something goes terribly wrong, we can decrypt that for you and a lot of our customers are saying hey that’s great I don’t want you to be able to decrypt my data.

00:29:20.700 –> 00:29:22.050
Jeff Melnick: And so that’s that’s.

00:29:22.050 –> 00:29:31.350
Jeff Melnick: that’s a that’s a big concern right so that’s where we’re kind of stepping up and being able to provide other encryption mechanisms as well, for that data so.

00:29:32.520 –> 00:29:46.320
Harvey Green: yeah so let me also add, we we have got the artist guys, you know in in the discussion talking we we neglected to mention one quick point we talked to them before on the podcast that was.

00:29:46.830 –> 00:30:01.770
Harvey Green: episode 17 I had to look up, and you know, back then, they were known as nuclear cyber and so now they are known as artists, I guess you know the you guys want to address that the name change there.

00:30:02.790 –> 00:30:03.780
Harvey Green: We haven’t done that yet.

00:30:04.890 –> 00:30:12.690
Randy Brown: Sure yeah so we merged with another company and other cyber security company called artists out of the Australia out of Australia.

00:30:13.590 –> 00:30:16.380
Randy Brown: And that made a lot of sense, we have a lot of our development out of Australia.

00:30:16.860 –> 00:30:28.440
Randy Brown: On the artist side they have a high expertise in a solutions for very top secret collaboration so they’ve got their own we have our own platform for hush hush stuff with Department of Defense.

00:30:28.920 –> 00:30:40.560
Randy Brown: That cannot be stored in public clouds, for instance, right you can’t store some something even a in a GCC high sharepoint environment so with our sharepoint expertise and.

00:30:41.130 –> 00:30:55.290
Randy Brown: You check files and file shares and non top secret information was a really good marriage, so they take the you know do D stuff we take everything below that as far as securing that that that information so it’s been a really good marriage, they also have are the.

00:30:56.340 –> 00:31:08.190
Randy Brown: Two companies also have a very a back attribute based access and control philosophy to data data centric which I know newt annex is also espousing so that data centricity is very important.

00:31:08.640 –> 00:31:15.960
Randy Brown: Where it resides protecting it individually and then looking at not only the sensitivity of the data but also the the the.

00:31:17.340 –> 00:31:22.440
Randy Brown: sort of the scenario of where the users are coming in, so are they coming from out of the country are they on.

00:31:23.580 –> 00:31:31.080
Randy Brown: The coming through a vpn how they coming in, are they in a coffee shop what groups they’re in, and then we decide what level of access, they get so it really good marriage.

00:31:31.800 –> 00:31:46.800
Randy Brown: We made it official, I guess, in the end of June, so you see all our name changes is now artists, although it’s spelled artists, but artist, is the way we say it that’s how we do it, so thank you for that.

00:31:47.670 –> 00:31:55.500
Harvey Green: yeah no no problem, I mean that’s like Oh, this is kind of the next level of what we were just talking about you know with being able to.

00:31:56.010 –> 00:32:08.340
Harvey Green: store your data on Prem this is kind of the next level to that being able to secure it past just having you know, the ability to point to which drive it’s on so.

00:32:08.370 –> 00:32:12.180
Randy Brown: Absolutely yeah absolutely we don’t care where the data is will protect it for you.

00:32:13.770 –> 00:32:16.620
Jirah Cox: that’s still the is the product artist protect is now.

00:32:17.130 –> 00:32:26.760
Randy Brown: it’s still it’s still our product still nc protect yep i’m on that the top secret side of the product called cogency with a K anything yeah.

00:32:27.750 –> 00:32:29.340
Randy Brown: All right, which I think is a cool name so.

00:32:30.870 –> 00:32:31.560
Randy Brown: I did not eat it.

00:32:33.900 –> 00:32:39.060
Andy Whiteside: Because we got a 15 minutes left that’s about enough time to cover half a topic with this crew now i’m just kidding.

00:32:39.780 –> 00:32:41.190
Andy Whiteside: gyro what’s that what’s next.

00:32:41.280 –> 00:32:55.890
Jirah Cox: The so yeah sticking with the files right conversation announcing that we announced files and objects cloud tearing so you know no longer does does the the files like SMB share and fs your.

00:32:56.610 –> 00:33:08.370
Jirah Cox: Data or objects right s3 data stored in the cluster need to be the contents of the entire share right or the entire s3 namespace so those can now both be sort of bottomless.

00:33:09.420 –> 00:33:16.980
Jirah Cox: buckets if you will it go out to cloud tears whether it’s our on Prem s3 storage, whether it’s aws s3 azure blob.

00:33:17.370 –> 00:33:27.840
Jirah Cox: You can write it all to one share, we can send the oldest data out to the cloud that you don’t need to keep on Prem if you want to do that as well for like archive tier data, so making.

00:33:27.870 –> 00:33:28.740
Andy Whiteside: me want to highlight.

00:33:29.130 –> 00:33:40.680
Andy Whiteside: I thought the new tannic people all time we don’t totally just represent eugenics even that so when we like the most by far it’s that files capability this just game changing compared to some of the other things that we work with.

00:33:42.180 –> 00:33:56.340
Jirah Cox: No, I agree right, I mean it’s it’s it was, I think, just my opinion, the first way we really evolved beyond we run desktops really well we run servers really well right now it’s like we can take on other roles in the data Center.

00:33:57.450 –> 00:34:01.440
Jirah Cox: I would object up there with that right so objects, is where you know.

00:34:02.100 –> 00:34:07.890
Jirah Cox: The majority of the use cases that I talked to customers about for objects Center around data protection right so like.

00:34:08.220 –> 00:34:15.090
Jirah Cox: No one thinks of new tannic intuitively and I totally get that as a platform that I target for my backup storage, but actually.

00:34:15.480 –> 00:34:22.890
Jirah Cox: It actually makes a ton of sense right it’s crazy performance it’s very resilient its scale out, which is usually the pain of most backup targets is like.

00:34:23.280 –> 00:34:26.880
Jirah Cox: You can grow it to a certain point, and then you know there’s a painful.

00:34:27.630 –> 00:34:41.370
Jirah Cox: You know re platforming to do, or you know every five years, if you don’t grow, you know throw out the old one move to the new one, and with the tactics that all goes away right add new nodes scale, you know when you need to so it makes sense for backups as well right.

00:34:42.420 –> 00:34:53.340
Jirah Cox: So yeah for sure, I think I think it’s super exciting that the data storage capabilities there’s a whole talk track that that next focused on around unified storage so for sure I think it’s gonna be a big focus for us.

00:34:53.730 –> 00:35:03.660
Andy Whiteside: and give you a simple example for some of our vdi listeners, you know remote effects, excuse me fs logics sorry fs logics is kind of the default.

00:35:04.230 –> 00:35:18.630
Andy Whiteside: profile storage mechanism these days for people in the vdi realm and virtual desktop and virtual APP realm when I hear a customer has mechanics and they have files, but they’re not putting that technology on top of it i’m like oh you’re missing a great opportunity to have.

00:35:18.630 –> 00:35:22.200
Andy Whiteside: Something reliable resilient and fast as heck.

00:35:22.920 –> 00:35:23.550
Jirah Cox: don’t right right.

00:35:25.980 –> 00:35:32.040
Jirah Cox: And so, so terrible right and such a fancy not fancy I think I find a novel way right with like, with the arctic’s folks to be able to.

00:35:32.340 –> 00:35:43.140
Jirah Cox: wrap you know policy based protection around shares that go beyond way beyond just a simple acl right that ability to say like oh you’re coming in from some of that I don’t trust a authenticate even more for me to get to this data right.

00:35:45.120 –> 00:35:49.950
Jirah Cox: Go see I like I like I always like to listen to episode 17 very cool capabilities in there.

00:35:51.450 –> 00:35:54.570
Jirah Cox: And then it’s also new there right, so we brought to our smart Dr.

00:35:55.800 –> 00:35:59.760
Jirah Cox: For files right, the share level data protection or it’s a share level.

00:36:01.320 –> 00:36:14.790
Jirah Cox: Production for the shares, you cannot do women rp oh so that your data gets from prod over to the Dr site even faster and then also, of course, maintains that ability to do self service or store so that that one, as a former admin is near and dear to my heart.

00:36:15.030 –> 00:36:16.650
Jirah Cox: So oops deleted the folder.

00:36:16.650 –> 00:36:30.480
Jirah Cox: Absolutely, the directory or a super important excel file, I can get that back for you, but guess what I can also teach you how to go get the back for yourself right you get helped faster, I promise and then there’s also a fewer you know help desk tickets you gotta open to make that happen.

00:36:30.870 –> 00:36:41.040
Harvey Green: Right absolutely I mean when when ever I don’t know about your experience with that, but whenever that happened, whatever that file was became the hugest emergency for that person.

00:36:42.750 –> 00:36:43.500
Harvey Green: Emergency.

00:36:44.790 –> 00:36:49.320
Jirah Cox: The most creative writing and those helped us tickets right like work stoppage P one P zero.

00:36:49.560 –> 00:36:50.460
Harvey Green: Right yep.

00:36:51.150 –> 00:36:51.750
Andy Whiteside: Is a system.

00:36:52.050 –> 00:36:53.040
Andy Whiteside: As well as as far as.

00:36:53.490 –> 00:36:54.420
Harvey Green: The cake recipe.

00:36:55.980 –> 00:37:03.600
Andy Whiteside: Alright i’m the i’m the Nazi guy not enough he’s bad word i’m the guy who runs around saying stop using acronyms diaries at rpm which stands for.

00:37:03.960 –> 00:37:05.610
Jirah Cox: yeah the recovery point objective right so.

00:37:05.640 –> 00:37:08.760
Jirah Cox: Remember, I said it, I said it to write your data gets the Dr site faster.

00:37:09.090 –> 00:37:10.530
Andy Whiteside: But you explained it, but then you know.

00:37:10.860 –> 00:37:11.790
Andy Whiteside: Exactly what that is.

00:37:12.600 –> 00:37:16.470
Andy Whiteside: So that’s often used in a conversation with the acronym of our to.

00:37:17.100 –> 00:37:19.800
Jirah Cox: Sure what’s that stand for every time.

00:37:20.820 –> 00:37:21.600
Andy Whiteside: And so, when you’re.

00:37:21.690 –> 00:37:22.500
Andy Whiteside: Looking at here.

00:37:23.040 –> 00:37:28.440
Andy Whiteside: Is the covering both right the user is now in control of our our P o

00:37:28.590 –> 00:37:31.080
Andy Whiteside: of their files and they control the RT.

00:37:31.080 –> 00:37:32.010
Andy Whiteside: Oh, at the same time.

00:37:32.760 –> 00:37:38.550
Jirah Cox: yeah totally so that ability to you know, know that the data I right at one site is at the other site.

00:37:39.330 –> 00:37:42.630
Jirah Cox: as fast as possible right currently we’re advertising that women are PO.

00:37:43.200 –> 00:37:54.810
Jirah Cox: And, but it’s actually instantly available for retrieval right so as soon as you want to go get it from the other side right, I can either tell the share to fail over or even stays on the other side in a reasonable fashion so it’s it’s.

00:37:55.500 –> 00:38:01.560
Jirah Cox: it’s ready to be used right no lengthy like preparation rehydration type of song and dance yeah.

00:38:02.580 –> 00:38:08.550
Andy Whiteside: Alright guys five minutes left in the recording Harvey anything that happened.

00:38:09.630 –> 00:38:13.350
Andy Whiteside: In next that we haven’t covered that you thought was exciting.

00:38:14.910 –> 00:38:17.850
Harvey Green: um gosh on the spot.

00:38:20.100 –> 00:38:20.520
Andy Whiteside: Zara.

00:38:20.880 –> 00:38:26.010
Harvey Green: yeah I don’t have anything but I don’t have anything on top of it leaves so.

00:38:31.020 –> 00:38:39.750
Jirah Cox: We can bring in for a landing, so how about this right hdi is the marriage of software and hardware, but obviously all software is powered by hardware.

00:38:40.830 –> 00:38:50.190
Jirah Cox: So super happy to see isolate cpus and amd Milan cpus from Intel and amd coming to all platforms just gives our customers more options more power.

00:38:50.820 –> 00:38:59.130
Jirah Cox: there’s not an APP that it’s been going to get that doesn’t want higher clock speeds more performance more cores for vdi environments right, these are all fantastic things.

00:38:59.880 –> 00:39:10.920
Jirah Cox: Along with you know the beauty of new tannic solutions is that, as you do, that natural hardware evolution over time, as you do, that refresh you get more power with each generation.

00:39:11.970 –> 00:39:19.320
Jirah Cox: And now the with the newest nodes able to come with like octane plus envy me it’s almost wild to think that we have a storage tier above envy me.

00:39:19.710 –> 00:39:32.490
Jirah Cox: Where the hottest day we can hit hit an octane tier above envy me and envy me as the cold tier it almost just feels weird to say, but like that’s that’s crazy right 30% faster reads for opting disks.

00:39:34.410 –> 00:39:36.060
Jirah Cox: And then i’ll wasn’t on this one here.

00:39:37.500 –> 00:39:46.050
Jirah Cox: Human announcement right so as a scale out platform we’ve always been fantastic at running scale out workloads vdi, of course, as the first 111 years ago.

00:39:47.040 –> 00:39:55.770
Jirah Cox: For scale up databases right we’ve always agreed with Microsoft right you want more V disks to get more performance it’s very natural when you build out your systems.

00:39:57.120 –> 00:40:11.400
Jirah Cox: See Oracle as well, of course, everybody says more V disks equals more performance and we agree as well for for lockdown scale up databases right where you don’t necessarily have that option to lay out the data in a wider fashion to get more horsepower applied to it.

00:40:12.660 –> 00:40:15.990
Jirah Cox: Very cool announcement from the stage about data starting, so we can now.

00:40:16.410 –> 00:40:24.690
Jirah Cox: seamlessly below the level of the Venus that you see treat it like multiple V disks on our level, and we can we can do that scale out at an invisible layer to you.

00:40:25.050 –> 00:40:32.520
Jirah Cox: So we can apply more performance to workloads that need it, even when you can’t necessarily rework it according to our best practices.

00:40:34.710 –> 00:40:40.860
Jirah Cox: Some more performance more workloads right basically everybody gets on gets on board with that train yep.

00:40:44.250 –> 00:40:44.670
Andy Whiteside: alright.

00:40:45.870 –> 00:40:49.800
Andy Whiteside: Alright, so I do wanna I do want to bring one back around.

00:40:50.730 –> 00:41:05.220
Andy Whiteside: What we didn’t talk about it, but the so Java your solution is always the Nx the in house version is really always been nutrients great software, on top of a good super micro gear a solid announcement of the day, brown super micro being an official server platform.

00:41:06.240 –> 00:41:15.330
Andy Whiteside: Can you just elaborate on the the what that means from the history of mechanics into you know the ability now to support the platform on super micro.

00:41:16.560 –> 00:41:17.640
Jirah Cox: You also got me there buddy.

00:41:18.960 –> 00:41:32.310
Jirah Cox: I didn’t see that announce meant and it’s not sparking a neuron on on my side, we definitely have have the annex platform it’s a fantastic one along with you know customers choice of all hardware options right from Fujitsu Dell Lenovo.

00:41:33.540 –> 00:41:34.320
Jirah Cox: HP HP.

00:41:35.130 –> 00:41:42.030
Andy Whiteside: So I might have dreamed it and it’s not used to dream stuff like that so that’s the second time today have admitted that and then secretly embarrassing.

00:41:42.330 –> 00:41:42.810
Andy Whiteside: However.

00:41:42.870 –> 00:41:45.030
Andy Whiteside: i’ve done an impression, and these are the mouse.

00:41:45.450 –> 00:41:48.510
Harvey Green: yeah the The thing that sticks out to me.

00:41:50.250 –> 00:41:52.980
Harvey Green: Is that I think you’ll probably get.

00:41:53.040 –> 00:41:53.820
Randy Brown: To the same.

00:41:54.000 –> 00:41:56.400
Harvey Green: Page here in just a second while you’re sharing your screen.

00:41:57.750 –> 00:42:08.220
Harvey Green: But before this was always Oh, this is fantastic this platform, this is the Nx know type I don’t remember them ever saying.

00:42:08.670 –> 00:42:22.590
Harvey Green: Oh yeah this is super micro and I, this is the first time i’m seeing on the site that they are saying this is purpose built super micro solutions so that might have been what you’re referring to here.

00:42:24.000 –> 00:42:24.630
Andy Whiteside: It is.

00:42:24.660 –> 00:42:26.040
Andy Whiteside: where’s the microphone and i’ve.

00:42:26.040 –> 00:42:27.870
Harvey Green: seen that yeah.

00:42:28.710 –> 00:42:37.800
Andy Whiteside: there’s there’s a lot of super micro shops out there, that you know they’ve been maybe now they’re actually buying super micro that just happens to come on you can’t software and it’s supported in bulk.

00:42:38.820 –> 00:42:39.570
Andy Whiteside: From the other direction.

00:42:40.080 –> 00:42:44.400
Jirah Cox: that’s how I read this right just reading off the screen here about so are our elevate partner program which you guys are.

00:42:45.180 –> 00:42:57.120
Jirah Cox: are in and our rockin at so if super micro joins the is joining the elevate partner program right that’s super micro saying hey you should buy these things that we make ultimately to sell to new tactics to become an x nodes.

00:42:58.140 –> 00:43:00.750
Jirah Cox: Now you can get them as as Nx from us as well.

00:43:03.030 –> 00:43:04.470
Andy Whiteside: You guys can tell them i’m googling.

00:43:05.850 –> 00:43:13.020
Andy Whiteside: Intel data blocks that’s another one that would I would love to see you can formalize a relationship with it’s another great platform, but nonetheless.

00:43:13.380 –> 00:43:14.460
Andy Whiteside: we’re gonna go there, like that one.

00:43:14.790 –> 00:43:17.250
Jirah Cox: we’ve got him that’s that’s it that’s a done deal it wasn’t.

00:43:18.900 –> 00:43:20.730
Andy Whiteside: Well i’ve got to go find that out that’s all.

00:43:20.790 –> 00:43:21.180
Jirah Cox: You every.

00:43:21.270 –> 00:43:21.450
Andy Whiteside: Day.

00:43:21.510 –> 00:43:29.970
Jirah Cox: If you average the Andy request time for clusters on azure as well as a ios on Intel data Center blocks, you get you get very low response times.

00:43:31.230 –> 00:43:32.700
Harvey Green: that’s cheap can’t do that.

00:43:33.060 –> 00:43:37.320
Andy Whiteside: Well, you took one that was like six months and computed the one that was sub hey.

00:43:37.350 –> 00:43:37.560
Andy Whiteside: hey.

00:43:37.590 –> 00:43:39.180
Jirah Cox: Baba second Okay, I did the math.

00:43:39.270 –> 00:43:41.490
Randy Brown: If you reject the latency it’s about.

00:43:42.060 –> 00:43:44.850
Harvey Green: Five minutes there’s areas.

00:43:45.630 –> 00:43:52.050
Andy Whiteside: Alright guys well a last chance Arctic Scott artists guys any parting comments.

00:43:52.710 –> 00:44:05.580
Randy Brown: know we as as mentioned, for we were sponsored dot next conference had a great boost their had like it will come by so we’re excited to continue the partnership with new tannic sense INTEGRA so we’re very happy with it.

00:44:05.940 –> 00:44:15.120
Jirah Cox: Thank you have a partnership, thank you for, thank you for the fantastic solution, I think, is really a fantastic way to protect protect the data that goes into files, make sure.

00:44:15.990 –> 00:44:17.130
Andy Whiteside: Harvey your chance.

00:44:18.330 –> 00:44:21.510
Harvey Green: I am good, believe it or not.

00:44:23.130 –> 00:44:24.660
Harvey Green: It doesn’t happen often does it.

00:44:26.130 –> 00:44:35.940
Harvey Green: I think we’ve hit everything that we need to hit for this one, but we’ll have lots of content and much more detail in the coming weeks, based on that next.

00:44:37.440 –> 00:44:40.800
Andy Whiteside: rv rv is run out of juice Somebody tell them it’s only Thursday.

00:44:44.220 –> 00:44:45.510
Andy Whiteside: five hour energy and.

00:44:45.540 –> 00:44:47.820
Andy Whiteside: that’s I know you have plenty energy.

00:44:47.910 –> 00:44:55.200
Andy Whiteside: If not, I think, drivers in a good job, covering it and you know I can’t wait to be back in person, that would be my parting shot is this is all well and good, but.

00:44:55.560 –> 00:45:05.640
Andy Whiteside: it’s the people time that’s killing us and that’s why we’re in Durham doing a baseball game we’re we’re we’re giving people the opportunity to get out and let’s let’s go get some stuff done gyro your your parting comments.

00:45:07.680 –> 00:45:18.900
Jirah Cox: The if this is all you learned about from next, that is a great disservice to everything we announced and you should definitely go register for the replays watch them they don’t take a long time on the breakouts or on demand as well.

00:45:20.370 –> 00:45:29.280
Jirah Cox: And it’s fantastic and at the human interest level right there’s even in every conference has that little like you know non technical just interest level or at gaming corner.

00:45:30.090 –> 00:45:38.790
Jirah Cox: What I loved is even in our platform if you’re kind of just stressed out if it’s you know, maybe close to four o’clock on a weekday and you just need to to Zen out for a moment.

00:45:40.020 –> 00:45:48.600
Jirah Cox: meditation sessions on their 15 minutes of puppies rolling around in a puppy playpen go watch that and a really, really cool.

00:45:49.890 –> 00:46:00.300
Jirah Cox: smartphone photography top tips and tricks class, you know takes about 1015 minutes to get in and out from Conde nast global international renowned photographer who like.

00:46:00.690 –> 00:46:07.890
Jirah Cox: Take some photos shows you how to retweet them right there on your phone so really, really good stuff on there for the low price of free so go check it out.

00:46:09.000 –> 00:46:14.160
Andy Whiteside: Are you telling me that if I didn’t watch puppies for 30 minutes my boss walks by i’m gonna be able to explain that it’s working.

00:46:14.940 –> 00:46:17.040
Jirah Cox: I mean that’s what i’m banking on so.

00:46:17.640 –> 00:46:18.330
Harvey Green: yeah.

00:46:18.390 –> 00:46:18.960
Good luck.

00:46:21.540 –> 00:46:22.740
Harvey Green: Well that’s the whole we don’t have to say.

00:46:22.740 –> 00:46:23.070

00:46:26.130 –> 00:46:30.510
Andy Whiteside: Alright guys well I just got the two minute notice that my truck is illegally parked i’ve got to go.

00:46:31.770 –> 00:46:32.880
Harvey Green: yeah go get that.

00:46:34.980 –> 00:46:36.690
Andy Whiteside: Alright guys thanks for joining.

00:46:38.070 –> 00:46:38.790
Jeff Melnick: US bye bye.
