DataStorageWiki.COM becomes StorageNerve.COM

January 11th, 2009 No comments


As of Jan 10th 2009, will re-point to

When initially I had purchased the domain name, the idea was to truly create a WIKI site where users can come in and work on Storage docs to keep them updated. This would allow a lot of storage specialist throughout the world to centrally collaborate on upkeep of these docs. 

When the site was launched, it was more a central place for me to create and upload technical documents, but as time progressed it became more of a blogging adventure. 

The name DataStorageWiki is truly not a blogging name and I will keep it reserved in the future for the above endeavor. 

With the current blogging trends etc, its best to keep the website theme, names, etc on lines of blogging rather than WIKI. 

With that in mind I have moved the site to

For right now, all the users will automatically be re-pointed from to until the search engines etc start relisting all as This should be applicable to all the feed readers as well. 

In the mean time as goes live, I will start designing some concepts on and eventually host that site as a WIKI site. 

Hope there are no outages with this transfer……

Happy New Year!!!!

First want to wish a great, fun, prosperous, Happy New Year 2009. May all your wishes get fulfilled this year.

Hope 2009 will bring some new innovations in the Information Technology and especially in the Storage Industry. With 2007 and 2008 being two great years overall for storage innovations, 2009 might prove to be a record one.

With the current state of economy and the overall freeze on capital spending, the big purchases will not happen, but in the SMB market, if the right products are offered with the right pricing along with technology solutions, it might just be the right recipe for success.

Hope we see a economic turn around in 2009, with that said, overall the market might still take couple of years to recover out of this mess……

Too late at night….signing off for today……

Some new year resolutions coming soon…………….with technology blogs.

Happy Holidays!!!!

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all the Readers!!!! 

It’s been really hard to keep up with blogging these days since most of the time spent goes either at work or with family or shopping. The holiday season is great and the spirits are high.

Somebody put it very nicely

The True Spirit of Christmas

Lots of people
crowds everywhere
Rushing and pushing and shoving,
going nowhere.
It’s Christmas time again
Have to get all those things done
hustle, bustle, quickly,
We must beat the sun.
Must get this and must get that
Maybe this nic, maybe that nak
When did it happen?
When did we lose track…
It’s a race, yes it is
We are running, yes we are
But let’s not forget
before we get too far-
What is really important
Doesn’t take much to figure out
Take time to love
and love from the heart.


Tonight is the big family dinner night; all cousins are at our place from various parts of North America for this holiday season, with many arrived early this week to the last ones arriving later today, it’s going to be a big family reunion. 

It is fun seeing all the little kids running around in the house and all the grownups having great time talking about the days when we will little. Santa should be home tonight at the party and will bring over lots of gifts for little kids………

Hope 2008 was great for everyone and 2009 will bring lots of joy and fun.

Again have safe, exciting happy holidays!!!!

Signing off for the rest of the year……….


My Absence……

December 17th, 2008 No comments

I have been away from blogging late last week and this week. A ton of things going on at work. Before the 2 week long vacation season starts a lot to work to do for new business growth for next year.

Had a long day in Atlantic City today with Customer Training, very productive and will further help our expansion plans with this customer. In a larger picture it all adds up for future growth.

Customer Growth: It is really great to see what we plan to do today, the promises we keep up on and what we end up doing for our customers today can shape our future business with that customer.

Starting mid next week, have a ton of cousins coming over for Christmas, so I think my blogging activity will be down to minimum.

I do plan to write something up about EMC Permanent Spares, EMC Dynamic Sparing, EMC Symmetrix Management Console, EMC Optimizer and additions to Symmcli and Powerpath Commands, hopefully all of them this week if I can and if work permits.

It really feels like Christmas this week and hopefully next week too, seems like a lot of storage bloggers are enjoying the extended holidays and spending some quality time with their families.

Tomorrow have a very critical meeting with a big Storage Company in UK for further expansions in UK. With some existing business through them and looking for future growth, have to prepare and customize the presentation along with setting up a Demo.

Exciting times……………………
