  • EMC cops it on two fronts as HDS, NetApp attack, HP attacks NetApp
    two are still going at it on the subject of WAFL with the latest instalment to be found here Another ongoing brawl is between HDS and EMC as the ormer s Michael Hay insists that Symmetrix V Max is a bad cover of HDS hit USP V The post includes this gem However it is nice to see that you are enticing us to copy EMC s real R D sales promotion Ouch Hay also goes all science on us with a look at memristors devices that seem to have an interesting new take on memory He s posted this video about the idea Another controversy this week surrounds Western Digital which has released what is says is a 2 5 one terabyte drive Steve Foskett likes the idea StorageMojo author Robin Harriss however thinks that the drive s 12 5mm form factor means it is not a notebook drive and it might therefore be not entirely fair to call it a 2 5 drive seeing as most people associate that moniker with portable computers We just want to know how a drive can be measured in metric and imperial at the same time The fighting dies down a bit beyond these brawls although we can infer some tension by juxtaposing this post from HP expressing general enthusiasm for fiber Channel Over Ethernet and this one from Scott Lowe bemoaning the fact you cannot build an end to end FCoE network Elsewhere there s a lot of love in the room mostly for EMC Analyst Steve Duplessie is full of praise for EMC s Data Domain integration plans and Online Storage Optimization gets up close with EMC s Celerra dedupe features StorageNerve a blog we ve just started tracking has a fond look back at 20 years of Symmetrix vTacit expresses admiration for the EMC Storagebod decides that a lot of storage admin is done by the skin of one s teeth in contrast to Storage Architect s belief that process is king Storagebod also gets excited about this post from Sun announcing triple parity RAID being backed into ZFS Sounds cool Preston de Guise brings some sanity with four posts One looks at NetWorker s speed another considers sub saveset checkpointing a third looks at logs and the last we ll link to covers bad backup boo boos Okay Let s wrap this puppy up with a typically weird 3Par video Don t forget to use Disqus below See you next week Dig Deeper on Data storage vendors All News Problem Solve SGI adopts hybrid storage for clustered NAS Symantec aims Data Insight 3 0 at unstructured data management IT data storage priorities 2012 Virtualization dedupe and cloud NetApp announces Big Data solutions as market grows Load More View All SGI adopts hybrid storage for clustered NAS Symantec aims Data Insight 3 0 at unstructured data management NetApp announces Big Data solutions as market grows I spy web servers which don t lie Load More View All News IT
