The Odd Couple: Why a DBA Joined a (Pure) Storage Company

Presented by

Andrew Miller, Pure Storage; Anthony Nocentino, Pure Storage

About this talk

Who knew that the best coffee break conversations would end up happening online? Each month, Pure’s Coffee Break series invites experts in technology and business to chat about the themes driving today’s IT agenda - much more ‘podcast’ than ‘webinar’. This is no webinar or training session—it’s a freewheeling conversation that’s as fun as it is informative and the perfect way to break up your day. While we’ll wander into Pure technology, our goal is to educate and entertain rather than sell. This month, host Andrew Miller invites SQL DBA and Microsoft MVP Anthony Nocentino (Principal Field Solutions Architect at Pure Storage) to the virtual break room for the second time! We’ll cover: - History & Career - what led a DBA to join Pure Storage and some history around the database landscape (goes back to Calculus). - Core Principles - going deep on some of Pure’s core architecture (snapshots, key/value store, etc.) and how it still matters to DBA’s. - Cloud - digging into Pure’s expanded partnership with Microsoft Azure & the impact for databases and DBA’s. - What’s New! - It’s a grab bag - new goodness with SAP, Oracle, and more. As always, we’ll keep it educational while exploring how Pure is offering capabilities and products that benefit you. The team will stay on after the webinar answering any questions for those that want to stay longer!
