Saw a pretty good piece on www.searchstorage.com where Beth Pariseau interviewed Jay Kidd at NetApp about file and storage virtualization. (BTW, good article, Beth!)
Jay offered his views on a number of topics, including aspects of storage virtualization.
Of course, Jay's views were colored a bit by the NetApp perspective.
Not that it would ever happen to me .. ;-)
But I thought there was a strategic side to the discussion that was worthy of exposing. I think it shows a contrast in views between two technology companies.
