The first episode of the Gear6 Analyst Spotlight launches today with Brad O'Neill from Taneja Group. Brad has created a compelling framework for File Area Networks (a.k.a FANs). His ability to clearly explain the storage landscape and shifts leading to this framework is worth a listen!
"Nearly all workflows ultimately run through a file infrastructure that increasingly spans multiple geographies, business partners, and IT infrastructures, all with real-time performance and access requirements."
The podcast is posted here (24MB), and in the left sidebar. Enjoy!
