Brocade, wake up: Cisco is here, and it ALSO has 16 gig FC

chris coreline

Re: 16Gbps going mainstream

16g is still fabric core only - i would doubt any storage arrays actual capability to serve four 16 gig front end ports.

and a trunking license with two 8gig links is probably *still* cheaper and more resilient.

Dell kills 3-year-old object storage appliance line

Re: Must be more to object storage?

If i remember correctly from my time working on Centerra; most of these solutions also do some pretty cool tricks with meta-data which means you have much more granular information about archiving and the like - the kind of information you *should* have on Block but cant easily map / export and also the kind of stuff you do have access to in NAS but cant really manage properly.

Secret's out: Small 15K disk drive market is 'growing'

Joke

"According to our source, Violin Memory is an enterprise systems company selling against EMC and HDS, not a storage component company selling against Seagate or WD. Buying in small fast disk drives is more affordable than buying in an entire flash array"

Pro Snark. This got a laugh out of me.

Whiptail flashes new kit, launches 72TB storage monster

chris coreline

honestly, if they are celebrating a full VAAI roll-out as a product feature they have probably ran out of other features to shout about... it may aswell have a big 'SUPPORTS SCSI!!!1111' on the front bezel.

HDS swaps out AMS for HUS file-block-and-object stuffed box

chris coreline

neither this article nor the Hitachi website have any information on the stuff we really care about: what color is the front bezel - we had to swop out all our AMS's when we upgraded our Z9 mainframe to a z10 because the colors were clashing.

Pure Storage attacks EMC heartland

The final frontier

I like that the further into the future we go the more star-trek the technologies are starting to sound. Hell, ill buy some ‘phase change’ if it reduces my total cost of tachyon beam re-modulation.

Also, good odds that 2012 is the year of another raft of acquisitions for the big storage lads.
