Storage I/O trends

In addition to participating at the Techtarget (TT) spring 2008 edition of Storage Decisions (SD) event in Chicago this past week, I was also briefly in Houston Texas this week to do a keynote talk on the Wide World of Archiving Life Beyond Compliance at the Omni Hotel . Between the venue, temperature and humidity, I thought I was in Singapore with a sudden craving for pepper crab at Jumbo’s Seafood in the East Coast Seafood Center. While the Houston venue and those in Singapore were similar as was the temperature and humidity, the real difference was that I remind in the central time zone with a 2.5 hour flight vs. 25 hours of flights and changing planes. Both locales have nice people who speak English and have great food as well. If in Houston, check out the Omni Hotel and for archiving, the Mobius folks are great as well.

Ok, nuff said.
