Sad and Excited….

January 21st, 2012 10 comments

A hot summer afternoon about 10 years ago is when I first met a few folks at CDS (Computer Data Source), in a small conference room, the guys wanted to make a difference, do something great to expand the business, they were so passionate about what they did for living. In my mind I was thinking what would it take me to get a job here……. Fast forward a few days and I found myself working there.

 

Started there as a Network/System/Infrastructure Engineer, managing IT for them. Business was expanding, so we all wore multiple hats to make things happen in the organization. Business was growing in the US and the UK, new individuals were coming in with different backgrounds, we shifted our focus on Storage services, Systems support and ramping up on Sales/Marketing efforts. More innovation started happening around the core support services model.

 

Fast forward a few years, I found myself in midst of running all Storage Ops for our customers, still managing IT, supporting the pre-sales efforts, the responsibilities were growing and so were the teams. One of the successes we had was not only expanding the business in US but focus largely on North America and EMEA. Building diversity in the organization was very important, as the business expanded we focused on expanding the international ops, more diversity brought better risk management and resiliency in the business.

 

Then out of the blue, we had some opportunities that came up in the APAC market place, after several international trips and long nights of work, now our Asia Pacific operations were all on the way of expansion. I am glad I was part of our APAC ops from day one to the last day.

 

About 3 to 4 years ago, I started StorageNerve blog primarily focused on Storage Technologies. As much as it was a knowledge sharing platform for me, I learned so much more from other bloggers and  engineering folks that I met through the blogging effort. Attending Tech Field days, Geek Days, Blogger Days, Analyst Days, new product launches and private NDA sessions, the reach and networking with individuals in the industry really started expanding.

 

Last couple of years, I primarily spent a lot of my time with our top customers, learning about their business issues, needs and working up solutions strategies for them. At the tail end of these amazing 10 years, I was managing internal IT, Innovation, Services R&D, Storage Pre-sales and APAC Ops within the organization. Started as an engineer, moved to become a manager, Director of Storage Ops and eventually the CTO in the organization.

 

I am very sad to leave and the decision making process was very hard. But this amazing group of people, I guess i can never forget my 10 years here.

 

Well everything good comes to an end someday……

 

………. Fast forward to today, i will now be working with some amazing customers, some 96 of them out of the Fortune 100. Some amazing technologies from EMC, NetApp, Brocade, Cisco, VMware, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, HP and many others in customer DC’s.

 

Discussions started a while ago, decision making took a while, but the set of interviews and technology experts I met during this process got me sold on why I should make the change, the learning I will get to see here, cutting edge technology, independent viewpoint and exposure to some great customers.

 

This new position with Accenture as a Senior Manager, Datacenter Technologies – Storage, would help expand my skills and reach well beyond the Storage market place to some really kool technologies surrounding Storage. This DataCenter practice is part of a much larger IT Strategy Infrastructure and Security group. I am so much looking forward to finishing up the required training and hit the ground running.

 

Business Strategy, Solutions, Architecture, Evangelist, International business, Organic growth, Operations, Innovation and Technology have always been my strength, I really hope I get a chance to wet my feet here.

..
As it stands today, I should be able to continue blogging, be independent and keep an unbiased viewpoint about datacenter technologies, though time will say….. :-)

The Who’s Who of Storage Twitters

March 11th, 2009 2 comments

Twitter…Twitter…..Twitter…..that is all we hear these days….Time Magazine has been following it and recently published a big article on Twitter.

Many of our co-bloggers, co-workers, friends, family and now our better half’s are following us on twitter these days…..

Brian Henderson has an interesting blog article he just posted as I started writing this article. Here is the link.

There was a good post by David Spencer: Seven People to Follow on Twitter, here is the link.

On this post I do not want to talk about the advantages, disadvantages, etc, but rather focus this towards a list of Storage Centric Folks that are using twitter today.

This post is a continuation of my previous blog posts about various Storage Bloggers in the Blogosphere and about LinkedIn and the Storage/Virtualization Groups.

Twitter these days seems to be one of those social media outlets where Storage folks are spending a lot of time and energy to learn and push some new products and technologies. Here is a link to my previous post on Twitter (A micro blogging platform)

A blog post from Stephen Foskett from Dec 2008 and another one from Christopher Kusek from Feb 2009 discussing some storage folks using Twitter…

The Who’s Who of Storage Blogosphere

March 9th, 2009 12 comments

The Storage blogging community is pretty small and everyone knows each other, may be as competition or as buddies or as colleagues or as collaboration partners or as consultants or as customers or as guest speakers or as independent storage experts. But over and over you get to meet these fine people talking about Storage and the components (internal / external) that drive the data storage industry.

In an effort to bring every storage blogger’s sites and feeds together, here are some results from the reformatted outputs of OPML files.

If you are not following some of them, here is the chance to do so. If somehow your blog is not here, please send me an email or DM me on twitter @storagenerve and will get your blog added. I have checked most of the feeds and blog sites to make sure there are not broken links.  

Hope this serves as another layer of exposure for the fine storage bloggers out there.
