About cfheoh

I am a technology blogger with 25+ 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 as of October 2013, I have been appointed as SNIA South Asia & SNIA Malaysia non-voting representation to SNIA Technical Council. I currently run a small system integration and consulting company focusing on storage and cloud solutions, with occasional consulting work on high performance computing (HPC).

  1. Excellent article. We need to eliminate the simple “Save” command and replace it with an enriched “Describe” process (perhaps automated via ML) that will populate searchable metadata that gets saved with the data- which should be saved in Object-like storage instead of the archaic Posix constructs we work with today. Then our back end data infrastructure can work with the intent this article espouses.
