Storage Hypervisors - Video Blog (3 of 3) with DataCore, HDS, IBM, & Virsto

And so came the video blog idea. As you'll see, the vendors represented constitiute a good range - from large to small, start-up to giant - and also have different 'takes' on the actual implementation of storage hypervisors. But that's for another day, and another video. By the way, to see the other videos in the series you can storage-hypervisors-video-blog-1-of-3-with-datacore-hds-ibm-virsto/index.html" target="_blank">see the first one here, and storage-hypervisors-video-blog-2-of-3-with-datacore-hds-ibm-virsto/index.html" target="_blank">the second one here. For this third and final montage, the interviewees were allowed to get direct (but brief!) about what their particular company brings to the table in this space....
