StorageMojo’s Global HQ is pulling up stakes and traveling to wilds of Palo Alto for the OpenStorage Summit 2010. I’m hoping to hear more about the future of ZFS and other storage stacks.
I’ll arrive Tuesday afternoon and will leave Thursday. If you’re in the neighborhood please stop by and say hello.
The StorageMojo take
The rapidly growing cloud storage market is slowly but surely changing the dynamics of the storage market. Private clouds will never be as flexible and cheap as public clouds, but the closer they get the more their economics will improve. It’s a game played at the margins.
That bodes well for enterprise adoption of open storage for private cloud infrastructure. Not everyone, but those with the scale and the moxie to make it work will find a significant competitive advantage.
Courteous comments welcome, of course.
