Sexy? Not sure. In vogue? Definitely.
After reading this post (and linked article), I got to thinking about storage and how it directly affects my life, not just professionally. Without storage and the advancements made over the last few decades, the internet as I know it would not be possible. How could we have Pandora without the music archive? How could we have YouTube without the unreal huge amount of video? The answer is: we couldn't.
Storage may not be sexy but it is definitely cool. If storage is cool, then Solarwinds is Miles Davis.
