Here are my shared links from the first half of the week, featuring more Apple stuff along with storage, virtualization, and a storage gorilla!
- We kick off this week still focused on Apple (of course) and their new MacBook Air. Although some have suggested it uses a mSATA or PCI Express Mini Card, it definitely does not. Read Apple’s Unconventional New MacBook Air SSD for more information.
- While we’re at it, I posted a video about How to install an internal Apple SuperDrive in an external USB case. Watch for a post soon!
- Finally, I posted another preview: Iomega Bundles Capacity and Performance in New External SSD Drive
- A blast from the past, (not so) Recent comments about FCoE and iSCSI from a 2007 discussion featuring some big names in storage
- Jay posted Drobo FS — A review – worth a read if you’re looking at the FS
- Then there’s Simon’s excellent piece on Running VMware vSphere on an HP MicroServer
- The Keyboard Cult looks at folks like me who love keyboards (mine is a 1987 IBM Model M)
- Four hidden features in vSphere 4.1 is another great read
- Last there’s the Storage Gorilla with Man Bites Dog — Why IBM (and everyone else) should fear EMC’s acquisition of Isilon Systems
