Thank you, EMC. It’s not often I get to offer my appreciation in public. Now, to those of you readers that think EMC and HDS have patched up any differences we may have had, think again. This discussion is all about FUD – Fear Uncertainty, and Doubt – or as I call it, if you [...]

There has been a lot of positive reaction to our unified compute announcement from last week.  However there were very interesting words from both 3PAR and Storagebod about our announcement in their blogs.  (As for 3PAR, well like NetApp they don’t have any kind of a server business in their back pocket — we’ll get [...]

Disclaimer: I’m not an iPad, iPhone or iPod developer my observations and commentary are therefore not as an individual or company who targets this platform.  If there are those who want to critique my arguments from the perspective of an iApp creator it is most welcomed.

Recently there was a study commissioned by Microsoft and RSA which compared the preparedness of security executives in the area of compliance versus protection of Intellectual Property assets.  I have to say that I applaud these companies for bringing the core issue to the top of the IT industry’s mind.  It has long been known [...]

The article was from “Tape: A Collapsing Star” and the ensuing discussions have carried on for about two weeks now. The initial discussion was about tape not being as bad as portrayed in the [...]
