Can you provide a link to the IDC numbers you reference. Or, at least, give the full numbers in your blog?

Hi Larry

I'd love to, because they're fascinating.

But IDC makes a living selling the numbers as part of a subscription service. I can probably get away with providing a few tidbits here and there, but I think I should respect their business model (and license terms!)

I don't know your situation, but if you work for a storage manufacturer, it's a good investment. The data cube they provide can cut and track the results in all sort of interesting and useful ways, which I've used productively at various times in my career.

Sorry I can't help on this one!

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
