Enterprise data storage technologies rise from the dead

Greg Schulz discusses enterprise data storage technologies that have been declared dead, like RAID and Fibre Channel, but are still productive in storage infrastructures and still produced by vendors.

In this interview, Greg Schulz, founder and senior analyst of the Storage I/O group, classifies popular technologies...

such as solid-state drives (SSDs), RAID and Fibre Channel (FC) as "zombie" technologies. Why? These are already set to become part of standard storage infrastructures, says Schulz, and are too old to be considered fresh. But while some consider these technologies to be stale, users should expect to see them in their everyday lives.
