re: Enterprise Data Centers: A Buyer's Market
I would have to agree
with you that with the new storage efficient improvements are reducing the size
of data centers and the resources that they use. I also think that on the
flipside to that coin there are major increases in the amount of data that
businesses are now storing. It makes you think twice about the future size of
your data center, and how big of a role big data analytics and data mining are
concerned. I would have to say that Facebook and Google are probably going to
be good trend followers.

re: Enterprise Data Centers: A Buyer's Market
Good stuff, Jim. I was wondering if I'd see you flesh out some of these ideas you spoke about in our conversation last month in a column. I noticed you suggest partnering with a cloud vendor to "share space" Gă÷ do you think insurers will warm up to that idea, or is it better suited for other verticals?
