December 20, 2007



what you think about 2008? i believe its going to be service-oriented-based for storage and backup. The report tools or the architecture of the hardware/software will have to be able to provide utility models, like a subscription-based. Currently, storage is limited by the reporting tools, and backup software is the architecture designed of the software not allowing that.

    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!
