Market Adoption Cycles for IT Storage

I just want to share a simple graph of what I wrote about in my previous blog entry. I think a picture is worth a thousand words. Have a look at the graph below. I found this in the “Cloud Storage for Dummies” book sponsored by HDS. Full credits to the authors of the book.

Interesting, isn’t it?

About cfheoh

I am a technology blogger with 20 years of IT experience. I write heavily on technologies related to storage networking and data management because that is my area of interest and expertise. I introduce technologies with the objectives to get readers to *know the facts*, and use that knowledge to cut through the marketing hypes, FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) and other fancy stuff. Only then, there will be progress. I am involved in SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) and presently the Chairman of SNIA Malaysia. My day job is to run 2 companies - Storage Networking Academy and ZedFS Systems. Storage Networking Academy provides open-technology courses in storage networking (foundation to advanced) as well as Cloud Computing. We strives to ensure vendor-neutrality as much as we can in our offerings. At ZedFS Systems, we offer both storage infrastructure and software solution called Zed OpenStorage. We developed Zed OpenStorage based on the Solaris kernel, ZFS file system and DTrace storage analytics.

  1. Side track a bit (since you mention dumies πŸ™‚ ).. Do you know that the “Cloud Computing for Dummies” is selling at minimum RM98.00 at MPH, yesterday at MPH MidValley? My oh my. 😦

  2. Jay,

    Books in Malaysia, I believe, is still using the USD1=MYR3.90 exchange rate, which I think is ridiculous. I have been buying from Amazon ever since the exchange has been going down early this year. There are many times that I have saved more than RM50-100 for one book, even with the shipping and handling.

    I have been boycotting Borders (their US stores have filed for Chapter 11 a few months ago) because they are usually more expensive than the others. MPH IT book selection sucks and lousy customer service. Popular treats its customers like criminals, even kids. The only decent bookstore for me is Kinokuniya.

    So, that’s my gruff with the local bookstores. Sad

  3. So you are KLCC fan, or was it Sogo? πŸ™‚

  4. Jay, it’s in KLCC. I don’t really like KLCC very much coz I have been there for all my NetApp years and while in RDM, I frequently visit O&G customers over there. I just like the bookstore, that’s all πŸ˜€
