it would be nice to see more *data* about the petabyte club. don't identify the customers... but it would be great too be able to graph some of this stuff...

why not make it a formal petabyte club?

Monkchips:

I agree -- it would be very interesting to understand them more fully, how they came to be, what made them different, or the same.

Unfortunately, that would be tantamount to doing large-scale market research on behalf of our competitors. We had to learn about these customers' needs the hard way -- and they should too!

I will give you some insight where some of this data is being created:- http://www.hpl.hp.com/news/2009/oct-dec/cense.html HP is developing both the instrumentation and infrastructure to create and harness these large data sets. We know where the verticals and applications that generating these Petabytes and the slides on Isilon give some clue.

    Chuck has recently joined VMware in a new role, and is quite enthused!

    Previously, he was with EMC for 18 years, most of them great.

    He enjoys speaking to customer and industry audiences about a variety of technology topics, and -- of course -- enjoys blogging.

    Chuck lives in Holliston, MA with his wife, three kids and four dogs when he's not travelling. In his spare time, Chuck is working on his second career as an aging rock musician.

    Warning: do not buy him a drink when there is a piano nearby.

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
