Top 10 Storage Vendors to watch in 2008; Citrix in the list

We have Dell (with its EqualLofic acquisition) becoming a strong contender in the SMB and Enterprise market.

Here are all the mentioned parties:

  • BakBone Software Inc.
  • Citrix Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CTXS - message board)
  • Data Domain Inc. (Nasdaq: DDUP - message board)
  • Dell Inc. (Nasdaq: DELL - message board)
  • EMC Corp. (NYSE: EMC - message board)
  • Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (Hitachi GST)
  • Hitachi Ltd. (NYSE: HIT - message board; Paris: PHA)
  • IBM Corp. (NYSE: IBM - message board)
  • Isilon Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: ISLN - message board)
  • LSI Corp. (NYSE: LSI - message board)
  • Network Appliance Inc. (Nasdaq: NTAP - message board)
  • Sun Microsystems Inc. (Nasdaq: SUNW - message board)
  • XenSource Inc.


  • Quoting B&S:

    No. 7: Citrix
    A longtime leader in the remote computing space, Citrix is faced with a head-to-head confrontation with VMware in several markets. Citrix's purchase of XenSource for $500 million this year was a step in the right direction. Citrix has unveiled plans for XenDesktop, a competitor to VMware's VDI. And the company's announced a focus on comprehensive "end to end virtualization," spearheaded by the potential 2008 rollout of a hypervisor embedded in hardware from server vendors. But any competitor of VMware's is taking on Goliath in a space where the odds are stacked firmly in the incumbent's favor.

    Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

    My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

    Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

    Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

    I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them.
