CloudCall #1: Schedule of Events

by dave on March 22, 2009


I’m anxiously looking forward to tomorrow’s CloudCall event.  I’ve previously published the bridge line information here and all that’s really left is a “schedule” for the call. So, here you go!

Topic:  Cisco Unified Computing/Communication Server

Call Schedule:

  • Introduction and Topic Exposition – 5 minutes
  • Open discussion on the applicability of Cisco‘s UCS for public/private clouds (virtualization) – 50 minutes

Some of the chatter around Twitter, etc. has been about the server infrastructure of the UCS platform versus, perhaps, the solution as a whole.  I want to hear from YOU as to what you think is going to happen and its implications.

See you then!

Blog Topics coming down the line…

by dave on November 20, 2008


I’ve decided that along with my new found discipline of hitting the treadmill early in the morning (530am), I should attempt to set up a timeline or topic list of posts that I need to finish working on.  To that end, here’s what’s cooking right now @ Flickerdown:

  1. Cloud Storage Series:  Articles talking about data storage in the cloud (collab w/CXI?)
  2. Atmos Policy deep-dive
  3. Atmos FAQ and Facts
  4. Neural Networking and Storage: what are the potential impacts/benefits?
  5. Future Storage Systems: OS Data Streams and Processing
  6. Future Storage Systems: Creating a Cloud Aware storage system
  7. Data Survival (something that Steve Foskett tweeted about)
  8. Data Center Consolidation (something that timj4real tweeted about)
  9. Dash Cams w/Marc Farley (yes!!!! looking forward to this!)
  10. Recoverpoint Series : examples and notables
  11. MTBF and reality: who determines and understands this?
  12. Competition and how it pushes the development of storage
  13. EMC PowerPath: what it is, what it does, and why it will change your storage life…

In all, quite a decent list of things to cover.  Note, there’s no real chronology to things as this is simply a working list.  If there’s something that you want to see covered, hit me up on Twitter (@davegraham) or via the comment system on this site!

Look forward to hearing from you!

cheers,

Dave Graham
