Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

El Reg storage desk will be running excerpts from Martin Glassborow's Storagebod blog and is pleased as punch to do so.

Martin has built up an enviable reputation as one of the foremost storage bloggers because of his position working to implement a large scale media archive for a multi-media company, and his ability to touch on data centre, storage user, and storage vendor topics with a rare shrewdness, lightness of touch and an accurate skewering of bullshit in general.

He knows the storage world and its technologies well and an example of his approach and style can be found in a blog he wrote on virtual storage appliances. It's well worth a read.

We're running our first copy of his blog shortly. Watch out for it. Storagebod is worth reading. We welcome him and commend him to you. ®
