This month saw another NetApp Insight event, and it was hot! By ‘hot’ I don’t mean the weather in Las Vegas, I’m talking about the whether we experienced there. Let me explain: NetApp formally convened its event the day after Dell’s intent to acquire EMC was announced….whether this turns out to be a cloud or a silver lining remains to be seen, but for once NetApp seemed determined to be a master of its destiny way more than the market-passenger (albeit it a highly successful one!) that it has all-too-often been.
Watch the video, where my colleagues Jason Buffington, Scott Sinclair, and I recap the event, and then read my further thoughts below.
