day today while the West Coast of the U.S. has been sleeping, I've been
reading articles in the media about Sun's new open storage appliances
-- the Sun Storage 7110, 7210,
. The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and the tech media all had articles on these new systems. But the Forbes piece
grabbed me right in the first paragraph: "Give Sun Microsystems credit:
The roof may be on fire, but the beleaguered server vendor seems just
as focused on putting out innovative products as putting out the
flames." Nice bit. But my first reaction was, "well, what did you
expect?" Ok, times are tough, but we sure as hell aren't curling up
in a little ball and going away, right? I
like the focus on innovation and the determination to build something new. I like the buzz in the blogs. That's what
you should expect.
Anyway, Bryan has the entire story with links to the whole team, so I'll just point there so you can start with Fishworks engineering
. I know this project has been going for some time, and the entire team deserves a massive congratulations. Enjoy the day!
