I’m very honoured and grateful to have been asked recently by Lisa Crewe from NetApp to put together a guest blog post on her NetApp blog. The first of these has gone live this afternoon, covering some of the fundamentals to “What is the Cloud”. I was quite keen to not talk specific products or solutions, but more the softer aspects of what you need to consider in order to start planning towards your own Cloud offering.
HPC really isn’t something I’m involved with, or ever have been involved with. But I am starting to pay a little attention. ONTAP GX is going to (eventually) get converged with ONTAP 7G and we’ll have Grid Computing based storage, potentially platform independent (don’t forget V-Filers!). I’m not holding my breath just yet for that, but believe me it is coming!
