Storage Developer Conference '07

I attended this conference for first time here in San Jose and it was a great experience. (i like the venue)

Key take away from this conference are:
  • move towards application(i call this as AOS- Application Oriented Storage)
  • move towards general purpose hardware & cheap hardware
  • move towards open standards
  • move towards open source (Aperi is an example)
  • raise of Ethernet and slow death of Fibre Channel?
  • It looks like FCoE is the bridge for move towards ether?
  • XML/Webservice for management
So, it looks like a big shift is starting in the storage world!
