Is the ongoing quest for agility in the data center forcing you to evaluate how to be a part of infrastructure automation efforts?
As organizations evolve toward bimodal IT operations, they are embracing new service delivery models and leveraging virtualization to increase infrastructure agility.

Storage Insanity | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Storage #DataCenter – Wed, 24 Aug 2016
To paraphrase someone famous, “The definition of insanity is to do something the same way over and over again and expect a different result”.
Humans are creatures of habit and when it comes to storage, old habits die hard.
Why do we continue to put our faith in legacy storage providers when they haven’t invented anything new in decades. Sure, they re-badge their products every couple of years to make their messaging look modern, but ultimately, it’s the same old stuff with a new coat of lipstick.
Asides from becoming smaller, faster and cheaper to acquire, but much more expensive and complex to run, storage technology is exactly as it was when it was released 60 or 70 years ago.

Facing SaaS App Reality | @CloudExpo #IoT #BigData #DevOps – Sun, 21 Aug 2016
I’m often guilty of sticking my head in the sand, ignoring very small details that could turn into big problems later on. Like when Netflix told me my credit card was about to expire, but it seemed like such a boring task, so I ignored them…till the day Netflix stopped working. I grumbled at the TV for awhile, then wasted another half hour remembering my login details and finding the credit card update page.
Clearly, I should have followed the easy link in the first place. It was my oversight that led me to waste time and my good mood updating my info. I consider missing my favorite television an actual problem in life, but realistically, it’s a minor problem that only affected me (and the people I live with. I was pretty grumpy).
