What storage product would you like to see on the market that isn't now?

Question of the Month: What storage product would you like to see on the market that isn't now? "Flash drives to replace physical tapes, yet that can still be used in silo systems and removed and stored offsite." --Rory Morrow, mainframe storage advisor, Dallas "A software program that cuts across all vendor hardware allowing all storage duties--from installation to decommission--to be performed. Three reasons: first, training budgets are zero and cross-training is the new corporate theme. Second, price is everything and the data center is a cornucopia of hardware. And third, vendors aren't providing a single interface within their own tier offerings. Imagine each vendor only having to code new hardware to a known HAL or API." --Curtis MacDonald, Milwaukee "ZFS in the Linux kernel. It would bring Linux light years into the future." --Maurice Volaski, computing support, Rose F. Kennedy Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, Bronx, NY
