Fans who enjoyed last Sunday’s episode 3 of HBO’s Silicon Valley will recall that a mere one week ago the Pied Piper team set out to deliver “the box.”
The development schedule was set…
The show teased a sneak preview of SimpliVity’s GUI and system components spread across the table of the new Pied Piper offices.
And voila… just one week later, we have its magnificent unveiling…
That, of course, is the magic of Hollywood. A two hour movie can chronicle an entire lifetime of events. A 10 minute segment on my favorite cooking show produces a gourmet meal that would take me a full weekend to prepare…
The 96 foot-tall rainbow art that over-arches Sony’s Culver City lot – a giant homage to the MGM production Wizard of Oz – indeed represents this as the place “where dreams come true.”
But what does a “real-life” time-table look like to deliver the kind of revolutionary data efficiency, resiliency and performance improvements that leaves IT professionals star-struck?
Check out the chart below for a quick introduction to the “evolution of IT convergence,” including the development timelines and corresponding benefits that some of the biggest brands in tech today have invested. Or watch my colleague, Jesse St. Laurent, discuss the evolution of hyperconvergence in this video.
While we know the time and hard work it takes to transform a vision like hyperconvergence into a reality, it’s been a blast for all of us at SimpliVity to be swept away by the magic of Hollywood. We welcome you to watch alongside us for the rest of Silicon Valley’s third season to find out what happens to “the box” and its creators – we’re excited and hope you are too.
