SNW Fall is happening in Santa Clara, yet another event I can't attend as my wife and daughter are enjoying a fabulous trip through Europe. One of the hot topics that will be certainly getting a lot of attention is solid state storage. My colleague Vish Mulchand, Director of Product Management, joined me late Friday night to record this podcast with me as he presents a session at SNW about solid state technology.
It's a great discussion with Vish - here's an outline of what we covered:
- Why has solid state changed the IT landscape?
- Where are the different places customers can deploy solid state storage technology?
- We discussed when to use solid state technology?
- Lastly we talked about HP's offerings that include solid state - this is a short discussion and isn't part of Vish's SNW presentation.
Here's the podcast with Vish:
