Storage requirements are getting huge. Data is incredibly sticky: it doesn’t move or ever get smaller. These two realities make your choice of a storage system vitally important. However, there is no storage system that provides a single solution for all use cases. You must pair the right use case with the right system.
Imagine a world where code used by the biggest clouds is freely available to any developer, anywhere. A world where that code was a standard used to build private clouds as well as a variety of new service offers. In this world, workloads could be moved around these clouds easily – you could fire your cloud provider for bad service or lack of features, but not have to rewrite the software to do it. Imagine an open source cloud operating system that lifts IT to the next level of innovation, just as Linux drove the web to new heights.
