Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world. -Marilyn Monroe
Back in 1956, IBM introduced us to the first commercially available disk drive. It stored 5MB of data, weighed over a ton, and could be leased for $3,200 a month. Today, with the prevalence of solid state storage, you can fit a 128GB Flash Drive in your shirt pocket for under $100.
Although I wouldn’t store my most critical database on a $100 flash drive, it’s a testament to the advances we have seen within storage industry in a relatively short period of time.
With the 4th of July a mere two days away, I’ve become reminiscent of how awesome this holiday is. When my daughter first started watching fireworks shows, she would sit in pure awe as the dazzling fireworks exploded overhead, enthralled by the different colors and shapes. I watched as she would cower and cover her ears as the big booms went off. I enjoyed listening to her deep giggle, while she marveled at the loud and impressive fireworks. Even 12 years later, she still loves this holiday and looks forward to the firework shows.
If you are like me and want to understand what’s new and hot (or will be hot) in the storage industry, EMC World is a must attend event. During the past several years, EMC has leveraged EMC World to push concepts and ideas that have helped shaped modern datacenters worldwide.
