My first venture into blogosphere... guess I should introduce myself. I have been described, through my years, as a particle physicist, CTO, architect and most recently an EMC Distinguished Engineer, and consider myself an honorary southerner (Yes - I did live in and love Louisiana in my past, and still miss the food). I like to think of myself as a curious soul who is ever in awe of what I don't know and what no one knows.
I grew up with real-time computing and loosely-coupled compute grids in data acquisition environments in high-energy accelerator experiments at Fermilab, DESY and CERN during the birth of HTTP, my baptism by fire in UNIX, which I grew to love. Now I am comfortable with most operating systems, and a smattering languages, databases, ERPs and networks, and of course, storage technologies.
Fair warning: I am an an employee of EMC Corporation and proud of it, however, any and all opinions expressed by me in this blog are mine and mine alone, and may not reflect EMC's official stance on anything. EMC is not responsible for any of this content, and no one controls my posts.
I find technology and data of any kind fascinating, and people even more so, and will be blogging quite a bit on both.
'Nuff for now, I do have some interesting observations to share on certain benchmarks in the storage industry, but more on that in my next few posts!
