Heroes Included at the OpenSolaris Storage Summit!!!!!!
By pmonday on Feb 08, 2009
I was just browsing the agenda for the OpenSolaris Storage Summit that is being held on February 23rd 2009 in San Francisco (city with that crooked street ya know).
It turns out one of the big talks is going to be from Don McAskill from SmugMug ... and I kid you not and I'm not doing any schmooozing here, but it is my favorite favorite photo sharing site so I've already signed up. Also on the list are Mike Shapiro or Randy Bias from GoGrid. What does Storage and OpenSolaris have to do with the cloud????
It turns out, everything in the cloud has to end up SOMEWHERE and if its not using the cloud itself as a storage utility (via the likes of Amazon S3, GoGrid and others), the cloud applications themselves use a boatload of storage. The Sun Storage 7000 family and the Sun Open Storage J4000 family coupled with OpenSolaris are definitely the way to go for infrastructure.
Doh, I'm totally geeked and off to the travel site to figure out how to book my trip and get my kiddo taken care of for the day (though as you can see...he loves San Francisco).
