Normally on the Virtually Speaking Podcast John and I like to take a very specific feature or solution and chew on it for a full hour, but this week we threw the script away and just had a great conversation with industry analyst Howard Marks. To say Howard has an in-depth understanding of today’s storage and server trends and developments is like saying VMware knows a little bit about virtualization.


Howard Marks is the Founder and Chief Scientist of DeepStorage, a prominent blogger at Deep Storage Blog and can be found on twitter (@DeepStorageNet).  DeepStorage us an analysis and testing lab concentrating on data storage, data management and other inside the data center technologies including server virtualization and management.
