5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Episode 94 Each year in April, the storage industry swarms to an American watering hole, some say to breed. Other say they are hanging at Storage Networking World. Who knows what's right?

We asked Infosmack hosts Greg Knieriemen and Marc Farley and their trusty friend Diva of Disruptive Technologies Christina Weil to investigate. Their forensic anthropology skills were lacking, alas, so they concentrated on what they do best,: making great radio shows with great guests.

They came back with this, an interview with Jack Domme, CEO of Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) live from Storage Networking World in Santa Clara, CA.

Let's drum up some show notes for episode 94.

This week the crew discuss:

  • Jack's SNW keynote: "Entering the Age of Information Ubiquity"
  • 3 Types of Clouds: Infrastructure Cloud, Content Cloud and Information Cloud
  • Technology vision vs. product pitches
  • Information management
  • Tiering on specific media types shouldn't matter
  • Discoverabilty of all data
  • How HDS has evolved since Jack became CEO
  • Significance of storage virtualization with server virtualization
  • Courage of conviction
  • How HDS leverages Hitachi Ltd.
  • Reflecting on HDS VSP launch
  • The relationship between HDS and VMware
  • Customer choices and Single-source vendor
  • Storage as a commodity
