Western Digital’s very, very bad week, Synology releases a major update to its NAS software, NVMe-oF begins to show some moves, and a really fun bonus round (hint: blast from the past!)
What, another one so soon! Yes, it’s time for Storage Short Take #31!
Storage Short Take is back!
The new Synology DS1520+ is the direct successor to the DS1019+, and is the largest member of the 20-series Plus lineup.
After a bit of a hiatus, we’re back with Storage Short Take #29. Some company updates, some misinformation about NVMe-oF, a whole lot of Synology security updates, and a mysterious visit from the FBI to a friend of mine.
Online conferences, new technology reaching the product stage, and some tectonic-sized industry ecosystem movements.
A very sad goodbye to one of the storage stalwarts.
What is and is not a “NVMe drive,” understanding fio tests for storage performance, a shooting-fish-in-a-barrel survey, some very high-quality webinars, and more.

“You know what I like better than being right? Absolutely nothing.” This phrase came up in the training class that I took this week, and I think that it sums up the mentality of taking the course quite well. Even so, I think it’s going to take some explanation.
A Happy Valentine’s Day to you! And because I love you so, so much, here’s the next edition of the Storage Short Take. In this Short Take, NVMe Key-Value emerges from its lab, some more 2020 predictions, some funding rounds, and quite a bit of conference activity. As always, links were live upon publication.

I finally put my words where my snark is, and come up with 3 storage predictions for 2020.
Bad NAS advice, bad NVMe advice, bad data recovery advice, some good NVMe advice, and a whole bunch of technology updates.
2020 Predictions galore, Intel’s embarrassing position, and more. Oh, and 5G will give you cancer, make you infertile, get your daughter pregnant and put hard-working Britons out of a job. Or not.
A slight delay in getting this one out (due to obvious reasons), but there’s quite a bit from AWS, a shocking announcement from Stratoscale, a not-so-shocking “Best of the Year” award, and a lot of SNIA work going on.

As I mentioned in my Storage Short Take #20, I have decided to leave Cisco. December 2, 2019, was my last day, and while it seems many people can change positions as often as they change their bedsheets, I’m not one of those people who can simply leave without reflecting upon the experience. Of course, when I reflect, I must …
