SlideShare: Staying ahead of the data-awareness curve

Curveballs, in baseball, are notoriously hard to hit. You need to identify one as soon as it’s released from the pitcher’s hand—otherwise you’re almost certain to strike out. Staying ahead of the curve in the storage industry has similar benefits; by remaining up to date on news, best practices and technology, you stay competitive against other companies in your league.

Like great athletes, most organizations need some coaching in order to achieve their full potential and make contact with curveballs that come their way. Our latest SlideShare, “Crash course in virtualization: 4 tips from top vBlogs” identifies some of the best coaches in the industry. Read it to get essential pieces of technology advice and industry trends sourced from the industry pros on DataGravity Systems Engineer Gabe Maentz’s list of 25 top influencers you should be following on Twitter.

As Howard Marks is quoted in the SlideShare, “even with whiz-bang technology like flash caching and data deduplication, today’s storage systems are pretty stupid.” We can all use a good tip when one passes through the noise of our day-to-day work.
