| Question of the Month: What do you see as your biggest storage challenge in 2009?
--Chris Marble, Unix systems manager, Harvey Mudd College, Claremont, CA
"The biggest storage challenge we're going to face is the new demand for virtual machines and ESX."
"Meeting the ever-increasing demand for additional storage, while also dealing with an ever-shrinking budget."
"End users afraid of purging data or pushing aggregate data to data marts or warehouses or offline to tape in an archive/storage environment. Disk may be cheap, but in the NAS array world of today, reliable and effective storage solutions are anything but."
