I gave a keynote at the last SNIA Symposium about the impact of 5 new datacenter technologies:

  • 2.5″ drives
  • flash SSDs
  • guaranteed uptime storage
  • 10 gigE
  • Cloud storage

Then last week I gave a reprise of the presentation to the SNIA end-user council.

Whelming demand
In response to overwhelming demand – 2 requests (I’m easily overwhelmed) – here is the presentation and a recording of the session. You’ve been warned.

You can download the slides (0.5 MB pdf) and now the audio (15 MB mp3).

Update: A commenter suggested a smaller file so I’ve replaced the 7 MB pdf with a 0.5 MB version. Not as sharp or clear, but the content is there – faster! FWIW, the audio file is heavily compressed and you may notice some compression artifacts. End update.

The StorageMojo take
I’ve never gotten into the podcast thing, but then I no longer commute 45 minutes a day.

EMC guys will certainly want to blow an hour listening to my comments on the Hopkinton giant. Make a pitcher of 3-2-1 Margaritas, put your feet up, and “go to work” courtesy of StorageMojo.

Courteous comments welcome, of course.
