“As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.”
— Andrew Carnegie
Over the last few months we have watched as the titans of the storage industry have started to purchase companies in the Data Security business. Although they say their focus is on storage, they seem to be trying to diversify as quickly as possible away from storage. You can see in previous posts the multiple times that executives in these companies have waffled about their vision for the future of their companies.
Why can’t they make a commitment to a long term strategy of High Availbility storage? Do these companies fear that they will be blind sided by a new disruptive technology? Don’t you wish they would tell us what they are afraid of?
