Transition to the Cloud

by dave on August 4, 2009

Well folks, it’s been fun being your “EMC Technical Consultant on the Interweb.” (there are more of us, trust me. 😉 ) It is with great happiness, however, that I get to report that I’m moving over to what has to be the most exciting innovation within EMC in the short time I’ve been here: the Cloud Infrastructure Group.  Something about the cloud moves me to fits of joy (or generally, paroxysms of short-lived hysteria) and the EMC Atmos product line, in particular, is really the future of where I see storage moving.  So, what does this mean to you, my faithful readers?

Well, I’m definitely not giving up my virtualization bent. Honestly, cloud computing is a really simple extension of virtualization and I think this is going to be the basis on which storage and technology will develop.  Abstracting the physical has always been of particular interest to me, so, this will be maintained.

I’m also not giving up on core products. Trust me, I’ve learned to love Clariions, Celerras, Centeras, Symmetrix for all that they bring to the table from a performance and capability standpoint.  That being said, again, I think the future holds some interesting developments for these products as EMC continues to push onwards and upwards into the cloud and virtualization space.

I will be adding in a lot more cloud content (i hope) as i dig into Atmos and Atmos Online product sets and hopefully, we’ll be able to discover together how EMC’s cloud vision can be realized in YOUR environment.  I’m honoured and excited by the challenges being offered me and I hope to see ya’ll in the cloud!

Hybridizing DR for the Cloud: Concerns

March 2, 2009

Over at Information Playground, Steve Todd has started down the path of no return: private clouds.  (Incidentally, I find it quite ironic that private clouds are no more private than public clouds in that they’re essentially run on the same infrastructure and face the exact same challenges for security, data mobility, and perminence that the […]

Cloud Talk Debrief: Impromptu Session

February 17, 2009

Yesterday, I held a rather impromptu “Cloud Talk” session with some of the Twitter community that has expressed an interested in cloud computing, cloud storage, etc.  I’m happy to report that given the rather abrupt beginning of the session, I still was able to sit down and talk with seven individuals (sorry, Stu 😉 ) […]
