Fancy a toothpicked-rollmop from our storage smorgasbord?

I know for certain what software-defined storage is. It's the new black

I’m not going to re-define software-defined. Instead I’d like to look around and try to make sense of different interpretations and architecture designs that make this claim. I have intentionally left out some solutions because they are not software-defined for me, while for others, I may have just forgotten to mention them or …

The B-side of storage containerisation

Blog B as in back-end, of course... My attraction to this technology started when it was first introduced on Sun Solaris and I had the opportunity to work with it.

Self-aware storage? It'll be fine. Really - your arrays aren't the T-1000

Comment In the last few months I have had several interesting briefings with storage vendors. Now, I need to stop and try to connect the dots, and think about what could come next. It’s incredible to see how rapidly the storage landscape is evolving and becoming much smarter than in the past. This will change the way we store, use and …
