Post-Insight Wrap-up, Storage Security, and other thoughts!

It’s been a super busy month for JK-47, having just come back from Netapp Insight, TechFieldDay Extra, giving a #vBrownBag Storage Security Lighting Talk, and now getting dozens of customers ready for end of year DR tests and new purchases. This time of year I tend to meet with 10-15 customers a week making sure everything is going smoothly, and also looking over their storage with healthchecks of the past years’ data.

This reply is not against Phil Wainewright or his comments on the 451 study, but the lack of vision and visibility the analyst firm put on Netapp’s positioning of their [poorly named] Data Fabric.

Pasting it here to save it.

Physical datacenter {in}security?

I do LockSport (competitive lock picking) as a hobby. Here is an example of a lock which is deemed “Pick Resistant” in the hands of a novice such as myself.
