In your opinion, which is the best storage technology? Yes, that question.
I wanted to write this commentary because someone with a PhD posted that question in a different context (below) on Facebook last week. It obviously touched a nerve with me because these are the same kinds of questions I get a lot through the latter half of my career. Next year will be my 30th year, and they have been primarily evolved around storage (a lot!), data and Oil & Gas petro-technical computing and subsurface data management.
So, obviously, like a specialist doctor at a meeting, many would gather and ask that question over and over again. Too many to c0unt.
Do what the Irishman does
More often than not, the real reason behind that question is always about something else. And to find out more, do what the Irishman does. Always answer the question with another question.
Side story. I learn this Irishman anecdote from an Irishman while working at NetApp® 21 years ago. I am looking at you, Niall Doherty!
