I have been away from the Storage Blogosphere, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook for the past 2 weeks or so. Travel schedules have been so much hectic and so many scheduled meetings, its just hard to catchup with blogging these days.
Have to read all about EMC’s new Flash drives, the 200GB and 400GB, I believe i had a blog post about it earlier in Feb that we might see them with the new generation of DMX5’s.
Need to catchup on Cisco’s UCS, I see everyone in the community has written something or the other about how UCS will play in this market.
Heard a few things about EMC’s Analyst day last Tuesday and their vision into Cloud.
And lastly, the rumor which now is the fact, IBM is pursing the acquisition to destroy the name brand SUN. Need to read what the views are, I did hear about a month ago, that a team of IBM high level executives have been visiting various SUN offices everyday through out the US. It was always in the planning….WERE YOU HOLDING SUN STOCK WHEN THE ANNOUNCEMENT WAS MADE??? Oh boy you missed it……
I guess a lots to catchup to do on the weekend . I did finish some technical posts on DMX4 and Clariion Technology last week, but haven’t had a chance to finalize it. Hopefully next week.
Schedule next week looks very tight as well, at least 3 customer meetings scheduled every single day for Storage Analysis presentations, new PS engagements and selling some solutions. The week after, planning to head to London for some new business that is being kicked off, some training and some business contacts to catchup with…..
Very interesting month of March so far, hope the same for April……oh and I still need to do my taxes.
