This week I was in Atlanta and Denver and right now I am in Denver Airport writing this blog. Traveling to see customers at the end of the year is interesting, most folks are in a reflective mood and thinking about their costs of storage acquisition and management. I met with several folks who are worried about whether we are entering a recessionary period and some are also concerned if we are also entering a inflationary period. Business planning is always difficult, but now storage managers have to be concerned with not only uptime and connectivity but also about power usage and costs.
2008 is going to be an interesting year.
