This episode of the DataCentric Podcast has co-host Steve McDowell talking with Eric Herzog. Eric, a long-time veteran of the storage world, is the Chief Marketing Officer and VP WW Storage Channels for IBM Storage. In a wide-ranging conversation, Eric offers up IBM's vision of what's important in storage. Not to give away the game, but it's all about applications, workloads, and use-cases.
IBM Storage is laser focused on delivering storage technologies (hardware and software solutions) against four of the most impactful IT trends:
- Hybrid Multi-Cloud
- Storage for AI and Big Data
- Cyber Resiliancy
- Modern Data Protection
Beyond this, we talk about IBM's NVMe and NVMe-over-fabric story, and Eric tells us why IBM designs their own flash modules.
If you touch storage at all (and look at those four trends listed above -- you touch storage whether you think you do or not), then tune in and and hear what Eric has to say.
