EMC World 2009: Day 0

So EMC World is finally here.  Things kicked off Sunday evening with registration, catching up with old and new friends and a mini-concert by the Gin Blossoms (a band, being British, I’d never heard of).  Things went pretty much to form; everywhere was crowded, the food and drink queues were huge and a good time was had by all.

Although not officially open, many bloggers congregated around the Bloggers Lounge, which is right in your face as you enter the Solutions Pavilion, including @edsai (Ed Saipetch), @storagenerve (Devang), @davegraham (Dave Graham), @stu (Stu Miniman), @storagezilla (Storagezilla Twomey), @davidkspencer (Dave Spencer), @storageanarchy (Barry Burke) and others who I’ve not included – feel free to comment and berate me if I forgot you.

OK and one last thing (excluding the people actually in the photograph), who can be first to name these three reprobates?

As we go into Day 1, we will be getting down to some real business.  I’ll be focusing on where the storage array business is headed – how Atmos, V-Max, CLARiiON and others fit into the architecture.  I’ll also be looking at Storage Resource Management tools.  Don’t expect me to give EMC an easy ride, my normal cynical principles will be fully applied.
