What I'm Reading: 7500 Coverage

Quantum beefs up disk-based backup 1/30/09

InfoStor - Kevin Komiega

A nice quick summary of the latest happening at Quantum

NetBackup, OpenStorage and Quantum, 1/30/09
Symantec NetBackup Blog - Tim Burlowski

This is a transcript of a Q&A between Tim and Steve Whitner (Product Marketing @ Quantum). It was interesting to see Steve's answers about OpenStorage. This is not how I have defined OpenStorage (while at Sun), but there are different levels of open and different API levels. Here Quantum is looking at the application level, where at Sun we were looking at the OS, hardware level.

Jerome M Wendt and Howard Haile
This is a nice piece that gives an overview of the upcoming release of the software stack that makes up the Quantum product line. There are some exciting new features that are slated to show up in the next few weeks.

That's it for today ... I'm behind in my reading and even further behind in my blogging.
