Who the What The?! Storage Rap Off?

This isn’t the notorious fluffy G, but instead is an (honestly) very well produced piece on Deduplication as it stands with the competition – Or as described in the YouTube release:

NetApp sets the record straight on dedupe.

So, my personal and honest assessment? Which I’m sure you’re waiting to see ;)

I have to say, it’s very well produced, orchestrated and organized.   It didn’t look tacky (like those EMC dating videos I’ve seen, or Virtualization Girl)  The filming quality, audio representation, and the dynamic of the event – started off in a very emotional context.   For some reason, e-Squared reminded me a bit of Chuck Hollis (The beast from the east :)) .. I’m not sure why that is, but I think that’s kind of cute in my own mind ;)

I don’t really have an impression of double-D as to who they’re really giving me an impression of, I guess that’s just par for the course though. ;)

What really gets me is the “my technology crunch data anywhere” near the end, which really speaks well to the deduplication in primary as well as secondary, instead of some other methods in which it’s done.. But I won’t enter into that religious debate solely on this video alone, but those of you out there know exactly what I mean ;)

Final Assessment: Very well done, I don’t feel like it’s a 1990’s dating video recorded in someone’s basement, real cred, value and rocking ;)
