“When we have all data online it will be great for humanity. It is a prerequisite to solving many problems that humankind faces.” – Robert Cailliau Data can seem somewhat abstract. We think in terms of bits and bytes. We look at whether data is structured or unstructured. We spend our working days…

Good-Cheap-Fast? I saw this image from a restaurant recently, and it reminded me a lot of the state of enterprise storage for the last 20 years or so.  To make the analogy more clear, let’s replace the word “Good” with “Reliable.”  Yes, I know this ignores the features dimension, but since Tier 1…

Is performance really king in the land of enterprise data storage? When I joined Fusion-io, a PCIe-based solid state start-up back in 2008, my job was to evangelize a new data center design and shift the hearts and minds of the storage industry from cost per GB to cost per IOPS.  How else…

Disruption is the most annoying business meme right now. Everyone is disrupting something. Disrupt or be disrupted. Disruption-as-a-service. Disruption talk is why I can’t live in Silicon Valley, despite it having superior weather and the best burritos. Don’t get me wrong. Disruptive innovation is a sight to behold. It’s among the most beautiful,…
