  • Some downbeat EMC reports: 1) A source tells The Register EMC's strategy for object storage is "confusing, flawed, and inefficient … and causing internal fireworks." In addition to its Centera and Atmos lines, EMC's growing Isilon scale-out NAS storage family supports object storage, as does its new ViPR platform for managing EMC and non-EMC hardware/services. 2) RBC reports a software update for EMC's mid-range VNX line has been delayed, and that the company's Data Domain deduplication hardware business (has been growing fast) is "facing incremental headwind" from Amazon's (AMZN) S3 storage service. 3) Network World reports VMware (VMW) sales exec Mike Clayville has left to become Amazon's enterprise cloud sales chief, making him the latest in a line of execs to depart (previous). [View news story]
    You cannot take Quantum out of the competitive equation when it comes to providing world-class data protection, big data, cloud and even object storage solutions.

    Quantum may not be as large of a company as EMC, but they are fast and agile when it comes to sales strategy and sales wins. Quantum wins its sales opportunities based on trust, teamwork, knowledge, innovative technology and price/performance.

  • Oracle Thinks Cloud Is Marketing [View article]
    All the Cloud mantra mean to companies is the ability to cost efficiently deploy IT infrastructure in a tactical manner. That's it. How it's architected is typically based on the individual vendor's portfolio of h/w and s/w solutions.

    Most folks may not remember mainframe infrastructure, which was secured, and much more efficient than today's IT. It seems that the ever expanding and contracting of this business is on an "conrtaction" mode and soon we'll be back on some sort of mainframe architecture, as vendors bring virtual computing, virtual networking and virtual storage under "one roof" of cabinet. I call it a "data center in a box".
