Microsoft, Moovit, and TomTom team up for multi-modal transport platform

A triumvirate of tech companies today announced what they’re touting as the “world’s first truly comprehensive multi-modal trip planner.”

Taking the stage at the Move mobility conference in London, executives from Microsoft, TomTom, and Moovit outlined how they’re pooling their various transport, data, and cloud processing smarts so developers can integrate more extensive transport options into their own applications.

“Over the last few years, cities have experienced rising urban sprawl, where residents of metropolitan areas have been pushed out toward suburban areas, often beyond the limits of public transit lines,” noted Azure Maps head Chris Pendleton. “With most jobs still residing in densely populated cities, the typical commute is becoming multi-modal.”

Moovit, for the uninitiated, constitutes two core elements: a consumer-facing app that gives travelers the easiest way to get around a city and a mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) platform that provides municipalities with data and analytics to improve city transport infrastructure.

A few months back, Moovit and Microsoft announced a partnership that would allow developers who use Azure Maps to hook into Moovit’s transit data. Last week, GPS navigation stalwart TomTom announced an expanded tie-up with Microsoft, one that will bring TomTom’s extensive maps and traffic data into the Azure fold — in effect, TomTom will serve as the primary location data provider for Microsoft’s cloud platform, Bing Maps, and Cortana.

Fast-forward to today, and the three companies are now pooling their respective capabilities for an urban transport offering that any third-party developer can leverage.

“This will lead to commuters having the best option to plan a trip [by] combining legs on public transit, ride-sharing, bike, or scooter and other legs by car, including finding available parking lot spaces in real time,” added Moovit cofounder and CEO Nir Erez.

Through Azure Maps, Microsoft’s developer-focused mapping platform, users will be able to access not only Moovit’s public transit data, but also TomTom’s real-time driving and parking data. So developers will be able to include the full gamut of transport options inside their own apps — including buses, trains, metros, ferries, carpooling, bike-sharing, and now driving and parking.

“Blending TomTom’s specific auto and parking lot data with Moovit’s multi-modal trip planning gives Azure Maps an unprecedented view of every facet of urban mobility,” Pendleton continued. “No one else has provided this comprehensive level of service in one solution.”

Multi-modal

We’ve seen a growing number of integrations between transport service providers, and the term “multi-modal” is springing up more frequently in urban mobility conversations.

Back in 2016, Moovit combined its public transport data with Uber to find the best route in dozens of cities. A year later, Uber revealed that it would make it easier for its ride-hailing customers to keep tabs on other transit options by displaying real-time public transport data alongside private vehicles. Earlier this month, Uber revealed it was doubling down on efforts to show full transit options directly inside the Uber app.

Elsewhere, navigation giant Here recently launched a new social transport app for planning and sharing rides, merging all modes of transport, including public, private, and personal, into a single platform.

Tying these myriad transport options together is maps and data, which is the currency for urban mobility companies. TomTom was pretty much blindsided by the arrival of iOS and Android a decade ago, with smartphones enabling portable navigation in everyone’s pockets. In recently times, TomTom has been striving to refocus its core business to better compete with Google in maps and navigation, and it recently offloaded its telematics unit for $1 billion to help with this push.

Today’s announcement, alongside TomTom’s broader Azure partnership announced last week, should go some way toward helping the company gain more traction.

“Location data has become more relevant and important than ever before, and no one knows this better than TomTom,” added managing director Anders Truelsen.

HPE InfoSight to add support for partners’ storage products

Hewlett Packard Enterprise plans to extend its InfoSight predictive analytics platform to partners’ third-party storage products as part of its core strategy to deliver artificial intelligence operations, or AIOps, to customers.

Milan Shetti, CTO of the vendor’s data center infrastructure group, said HPE InfoSight would support not only its own server and storage technology, but also third-party products from storage partners, such as Qumulo, Scality and WekaIO, in “short order.”

Shetti noted that InfoSight was storage-specific when HPE acquired the technology in 2017 through its $1.2 billion purchase of Nimble Storage. But HPE InfoSight now spans the vendor’s storage portfolio and compute platform, as well as VMware, Microsoft and KVM virtual machines and container technology.

In an interview, Shetti discussed general enterprise storage trends, his company’s storage strategy for partnerships and acquisitions, and his vision for the HPE InfoSight predictive analytics technology.

What will be the biggest trends in storage in 2019?

Milan Shetti: One of the biggest trends we look at is artificial intelligence operations, or AIOps. In the data center, things have gotten extremely complicated. You have virtual machines. You have containers. You have applications of a hybrid nature in public clouds, SAN, NAS, with lots of moving parts — not to mention the data explosion. Trying to operate that with the tools that existed in the past is becoming impossible. And with the advances of newer technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, it’s possible to tame this IT complexity.

HPE’s InfoSight platform — which is artificial-intelligence-driven operations — helps not only identify where problems are in the complex environment, but also predict what is going to happen and what remediation actions are needed before an event happens. The technique that InfoSight uses is derived from artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Milan Shetti, CTO of data center infrastructure group, HPEMilan Shetti

The core principles of machine learning are very similar to human learning. We learn from our surroundings. Machine learning and artificial intelligence also learn from their surroundings in AIOps, virtual machines, applications sitting on the virtual machines, the networking environment, the compute farm, lots of data stores.

Will customers be able to manage their HPE storage products, as well as non-HPE products from partners, such as Qumulo, WekaIO and Scality, and cloud storage through HPE InfoSight?

Shetti: That is our vision. InfoSight is a software-as-a-service-based management platform, and our vision is that all the storage products and the compute integration is done through InfoSight.

How much of that vision is in place now, and how much will be realized in the future?

Shetti: The current support matrix of InfoSight includes all of HPE’s own storage products — so 3PAR, Nimble, MSA, StoreOnce and all those components — and all of HPE’s compute platform, all the different flavors of virtual machines and also container technology.

With Scality, Qumulo and those technologies, the hardware that they reside on is supported by virtue of them having the HPE storage products or HPE compute products. But the technologies themselves — whether it’s Qumulo, Scality and everything — those are in our roadmap. Those software technologies are not something InfoSight does today. But InfoSight will be doing that, as well. It’s part of the plan.

What’s the timetable? Is it one or two years, or further out?

Shetti: No. We know how to get it integrated through an API. So, that is something that we’re very confident we can get done in short order. Within a year of HPE’s acquisition of InfoSight, we enhanced InfoSight itself and some of the machine learning and everything in it. We also supported all of the HPE products within a year. Because of the way the technology is constructed, we could do it in a very short order.

Does HPE sell InfoSight separately?

Shetti: We do not sell InfoSight as a stand-alone SKU. Any HPE customer with a valid support agreement gets InfoSight. To us, InfoSight is an experience we want HPE storage to be known for. They don’t have to install anything in their data center to get that experience. People just have to register their devices, and it will auto-discover.

There is a nonzero cost of maintaining InfoSight, as well as the infrastructure, and that cost is on us. But the business strategy is, if we deliver a better experience to the customer and take away the burden of having to predict what’s going to happen or figure out bottlenecks, and we make it seamless, at the end of the day, they will end up buying more 3PAR, more Nimble, more HPE servers [and] more Apollo platforms, which runs Qumulo, Scality and the others.

You take in customer data from all these different systems in phone-home fashion and process it at HPE data centers. You must need a lot of storage to do that.

Shetti: Absolutely. We have a very large data center. We operate InfoSight internally as if it was a cloud. We also use colo [colocation] facilities. InfoSight is predominantly run from the typical cloud data centers. Most of the data centers tend to be in Virginia, Utah and the Dakotas. And we are also adding international sites, as well, because we have to comply with the GDPR rules — so United Kingdom, the rest of Europe. And expansion continues into Asia. We don’t have anything in Asia today.

HPE doesn’t sell cloud services or cloud storage, so do you build the costs associated with InfoSight into the customer support contracts?

Shetti: Absolutely, but I think that’s the cost of doing business. A good parallel to this is that Google doesn’t charge for Google Maps. But running a map infrastructure requires renting a satellite and cell towers. A lot of the processing happens in the Google data center. What’s the business model? The more pizza joints and enterprises get on Google Maps, you then [get] subscription revenue so that their icon shows up in the maps and everything.

The business model is deliver such an excellent customer experience that customers will always buy from you. If you remember TomTom, Garmin and a few other GPS systems from 10 or 15 years ago, they’re all gone. The market’s cornered by one free application: Google Maps.

What’s your philosophy about acquiring versus partnering or developing your own storage products, as enterprises shift toward cloud-native applications and software-defined storage in the cloud?

Shetti: We’re a selective acquirer, and we partner when partnership makes sense. The software-defined market is still evolving. It’s a collection of parts. They’re very, very niche technologies. So, we partner.

More than 95% of my organization in storage is software. Storage is a software group. The deployment happens to be on compute with internal storage or on external storage components. But there is a lot of innovation that’s homegrown.

What do you predict for customer demand moving forward? Do you think enterprises will gravitate more toward scale-out software-defined storage that spans multiple clouds? Or, do you think there will still be a place for traditional storage arrays?

Shetti: I do believe the world is going to be hybrid cloud, and I actually do not believe customers will care whether it’s software-defined storage, traditional external storage or cloud storage. They want the experience that it just works.

There will be some applications that are going to run in public clouds and some in private clouds. Some applications will look like software with internal storage from compute, and some applications will require external solutions. It all depends on the application’s speed, performance, latency and expectations from a storage standpoint.

I do believe the world is going to be hybrid cloud, and I actually do not believe customers will care whether it’s software-defined storage, traditional external storage or cloud storage.
Milan ShettiCTO of the data center infrastructure group at HPE

What is HPE using Intel’s Optane for? Why is storage class memory so important?

Shetti: Today, we use storage class memory in two places. You can have a storage class memory option in 3PAR, and it’s coming very soon in Nimble, as well. It makes the database and specific latency-related workloads like AI and ML [machine learning] run superfast. We call that Intel architecture memory-driven flash.

It goes back to our core principles on the compute side of things that CPU is not going to be the center of the universe. Memory is. Storage class memory is used today in 3PAR for cache accelerations and such, and we also use storage class memory in the back end of the InfoSight processing capability.

Does HPE also use Optane in servers?

Shetti: There is a storage class memory option on Gen10 servers.

Is the performance boost significant enough to justify the price premium for storage class memory?

Shetti: It depends on the application. When there is AI and ML stuff, we have seen a lot of benefit. If people are just using it for Oracle or SQL, it will get some acceleration. File systems maybe can take advantage of putting metadata [on Optane]. Near-memory speed access is a big deal for a lot of applications and especially edge devices in the data center.

One of the advantages of Optane is there are terabytes of storage, whereas [non-volatile dual in-line memory modules] NVDIMMs are gigabytes. That’s a big difference. You can keep your entire working set in Optane.

Has HPE sold much storage class memory?

Shetti: We don’t break down the numbers, but on 3PAR, we’ve sold quite a bit. On the compute, we’ve also been happy with the uptake on storage class memory.

Does HPE also plan to use Samsung’s Z-NAND and Toshiba’s XL-Flash?

Shetti: Optane’s not going to be the only game in town. That’s all I can say. We always look at options.

    I have absolutely no need for a pc other than having an urge to play flight sim x which will not go away , bought the controllers and software last July without having a pc and then thought it was just a phase I was going through in my old age . Sadly for me it’s still playing on my mind so maybe this could do the job without costing me a fortune . Is there any movement on the price ?

Experts look for new Commvault CEO to automate, orchestrate

Backup experts said they expect new Commvault CEO Sanjay Mirchandani to help the data protection and management vendor take greater advantage of automation and containers in its products.

Mirchandani became Commvault CEO on Feb. 5, replacing Bob Hammer, who spent 20 years in the position. Mirchandani previously led Puppet, which sells IT automation tools. Commvault found its new CEO following a seven-month search after Hammer said he would step down.

Mirchandani’s arrival at Commvault comes during an interesting time. The data protection market is expanding and innovative, and Commvault is headed down a new path with integrated appliances. The competitive landscape has also changed in recent years with well-funded competitors challenging Commvault and other incumbents.

How leader’s experience lines up with new job

During an interview on his first day as Commvault CEO, Mirchandani discussed how his background in DevOps and cloud at Puppet can translate to data protection.

Headshot image of Sanjay MirchandaniSanjay Mirchandani

“The magic isn’t only around managing the infrastructure, but also making sure the data generated is not only protected and managed, but is truly driving value and being utilized,” he said. “It doesn’t mean I have an insurance copy of my data, it means I’m actually using my data for insights or analytics, or automating or orchestrating the capabilities and driving value from that. That’s where the magic is.”

Enterprise Strategy Group senior analyst Christophe Bertrand said he expects Commvault to enhance its archiving, compliance and data management capabilities through automation under Mirchandani.

“As you think about where the market is evolving, how data protection is evolving, it’s very obvious to me that a lot more automation is going to come into play — there’s just too much data to deal with,” Bertrand said. “Driving business outcomes is going to require some serious automation and autonomy, so it’s certainly a plus that Mirchandani understands that aspect of the technology.”

Steven Hill, senior analyst at 451 Research, agreed that Mirchandani’s experience with automation from Puppet can be put to good use at Commvault.

“There’s a growing need for data protection that’s as flexible and dynamic as the hybrid cloud itself, and you’d have to look really hard to find a CEO candidate with more depth in cloud-native automation,” Hill said.

IDC research director Phil Goodwin said Commvault has the right technology for the current IT transition, but must also develop the correct strategy.

“Mirchandani’s real focus should be how to reposition Commvault’s products for the future,” he said. “Cloud is good, but it’s not enough. Other future hot areas are going to be backing up SaaS applications, containers, IoT devices and NoSQL data types. The question is, can Commvault target the right segments and dominate them from a market perspective?”

Goodwin added that Commvault could stand to increase its presence among cloud providers.

“They have very strong cloud technology, but they don’t have the legions of cloud service providers using their product to take it to market,” he said. “Compared to their competitors, they have a rather nascent cloud service provider ecosystem.”

What the near future looks like for Commvault

Headshot image of Bob HammerBob Hammer

The new Commvault CEO is not expected to make sweeping changes right away in his new position. Bertrand said he expects Commvault to continue with the strategy that Hammer put in place the last 18 months or so of selling integrated appliances that combine data protection and management. That is the road successful newcomers Rubrik and Cohesity have taken to make a splash in the market and gain the attention of established vendors.

“Right now, the market is very dynamic, with a lot of competition, thanks to a number of newer entrants in the market,” Bertrand said. “I believe Commvault has to continue to deliver on their product roadmap, continue focusing on the appliance business they are building up, and focus on cloud.

“In time, I’m sure there will be an opportunity for Mirchandani to insert himself and plan for whatever happens next.”

With Hammer and COO Al Bunte departing after 20 years at Commvault, new management has a clean slate to remake the company.

It looks to me like the company is taking some pretty strong steps toward refreshing the organization and taking a look towards the next chapter of the company.
Phil Goodwinresearch director, IDC

“What interested me was the degree to which we’re getting a full turnover of senior management at Commvault,” Goodwin said. “Both senior leaders of the organization are stepping back. If you look at the directors on their website now compared to a year ago, it’s very different. It looks to me like the company is taking some pretty strong steps toward refreshing the organization and taking a look towards the next chapter of the company.”

The fresh approach may be welcome, considering how technology has changed since Commvault’s birth in 1988 inside of Bell Labs.

“When they came to market in the late ’90s and early 2000s, they did Windows backup better than anyone else,” Goodwin said. “But we’ve moved beyond that now, into the third platform era, which is really characterized by virtual infrastructure. And I think any of the large legacy backup vendors have that same challenge.”

    I have absolutely no need for a pc other than having an urge to play flight sim x which will not go away , bought the controllers and software last July without having a pc and then thought it was just a phase I was going through in my old age . Sadly for me it’s still playing on my mind so maybe this could do the job without costing me a fortune . Is there any movement on the price ?
