The surprise CEO transition at Data Robotics shouldn't have been a surprise, according to the man who should know - the now ex-CEO Geoff Barrall. Data Robotics abruptly changed its CEO from founder Geoff Barrall to newcomer Tom Buiocchi on Monday last week, in an announcement that left out reasons for the CEO change and omitted …
Look for a Bright Star in the East ....... ? .....and for Wise Men bearing Gifts.
"Former chief exec insists there 'isn't any drama here'" ..... Quite so, it is just a Fundamental Wholesale Paradigm Shift in MetaData and Robotics Fields. Not a drama, just a Future Message Server BlockBuster Epic Saga unfolding and unfurling ITs Tales for Sailing and Sales.
And under the Myriad Flag of Independent Convenience, for a Jolly Rogering Crowd in the Clouds, Flying the Inconvenient Truth in the Face of Temporary Blights, Pretenders in Knights Templar Round Table Circles Pimping Temporal Anomalies in Dark Matter Issues rather than Pumping Heavy Meta Iron for the Lightness of IMPerfect Being.

Maybe they'll leverage ZFS...
Maybe Data Robotics will leverage free ZFS - so their system can get the features that none of their market competitors are offering: compression, dedup, bundle the ethernet with the USB & firewire, support iSCSI natively, kernel based NFS & SMB file sharing, get correction of silent data corruption, flash read or write acceleration...
Free open source software in conjunction with management "change" could offer Data Robotics a lot of free features which would make them best in class.
It's a RAID
Seamless failover of staffing too. Impressive.
