Or, at least, your Violin arrays.

A few weeks ago Violin Memory introduced their Symphony management app. They asked me to put together a brief intro video.

As work progressed a larger question presented itselt: how can enterprise IT compete with low-cost competitors like Amazon Web Services? That will be the topic of the next StorageMojo post.

Symphony points the way to a feasible answer. Enterprise IT can – and must – provide services that cloud-based providers can’t. When Amazon burps, who do you call?

The StorageMojo take
I’ll be writing more about how IT can compete with Amazon. But let’s face it: IT organizations simply aren’t used to competition that is faster, cheaper and easier than they are.

It will be a tough change for IT pros, but a necessary one.

Courteous comments welcome, of course. Stay tuned for more on competing with the cloud.
