Vendors: Speak your mind
Why not talk about your technology vision? Not just speeds and feeds and how much better your product is than your competitor's, but how you see the world (mis)using storage today and how you intend to make it right in the future?
Precious little attention is being paid to vision these days, and with the bears beating the bulls in the market, we need a fresh vision today more than ever before. So, we know you have an idea of how the world of storage ought to be. Why not share it with us?
Users: Air your needs
What is working for you? What isn't living up to vendor claims? How do you want storage to be? We want to hear from you and to air your views so your vendors can hear them loudly and clearly.
You can submit your comments in writing and we will read them into a forthcoming viewer mail segment. Or you can post comments in responses to the clips we air here. Or, we might be able to get you on camera, if we can coordinate our schedules. Contact StorageTV.org today.
Xiotech Discusses Web Services-based Management
Xiotech on Web Services
Krutsch and Lomascolo discuss W3C Standards for Storage.
Web Services and Storage
Web Services as an Industry Standard
Storage Ecosystem Integration
In Clearwater this past January, we had a sit down with Ken Krutsch and Eric Lomoscoloto discuss their innovative application of W3C Web Services standards to the management of storage gear. They've done it on their Emprise arrays at Xiotech and are leading the charge to have other vendors adopt this existing and well defined standard that will facilitate integration and management of heterogeneous storage and storage-related services. Hey, the application guys are already talking the talk, they are requesting services from infrastructure with W3C Web Service standard calls. So far, however, only Xiotech is answering. What's holding up the rest of the industry. You would think that the other vendors' hearts just aren't into the idea of managing heterogeneous storage in common.
Toigo isn't miked, but the important guys are and Ken and Eric's observations are well worth the listen.
