    The Apple and IBM Partnership

    IBM and Apple’s global announcement of a global partnership was long on plumbing but short on how the resulting applications will have a transformative impact on the enterprise.  IBM at this juncture was catering more to the CIO by speaking to the enterprise level security, lifecycle support, and integration that IBM is bringing to iOS.  While developers will get new APIs and development frameworks there was no real discussion of how these new iOS applications will be transformative from a content standpoint.

    EMC Announces Another Step Towards Backupless-backups

    Last week, in London, EMC made several announcements – many of which hinged on the VMAX3 platform – but the one of most interest to me was ProtectPoint, where those new VMAX machines will be able to send their backup data directly from production storage to protection storage (EMC Data Domain) without an intermediary backup server.
