Hey Microsoft: You want to keep hardware partners onside? Stick to software

Data storage solutions are typically sold as appliances: hardware with a smart software layer on top. The intelligence is in the box that you buy and is tailored to the hardware it lives with. That approach makes sense until you take a wide-angle view on a real-world data centre: independent storage boxes act well on their own …

Atlantis: That whole storage Holy Grail thing? We've only gone and DONE IT

Blocks and Files When we said that storage nirvana would be the ability to have VSAN virtualised storage containers and physical SAN array resources managed by the same policy-driven software abstraction layer, we little imagined a software supplier would pop up and say: “We can do that.” That's just about what El Reg storage desk wrote in …
