Webinar on VM-aware storage

Steve Duplessie, of Enterprise Strategy Group, is a storage analyst and blogs at The Bigger Truth. He and Kieran Harty (Tintri's CEO) will be running a webinar April 12th on storage for virtual machines. If you're interested in learning more about the problems of VM storage (and, not coincidentally, how we think the Tintri VMstore helps solve them), please sign up at

To give you a flavor of Steve's thinking, he has a brilliantly cynical entry on "big data". I'd been meaning to my own post on the concept--- it seems like there is a lot of excitement in this area but it's hard to see how any of them can become big successes. That's not to say there's no money in it. But this seems like a field where it's hard to replicate a successful sale over and over again--- each new customer is likely to be 80% similar to a previous one and 20% unique. My friend David Carlton recently joined an analytics startup, and a I knew a bunch of guys at Aster Data (recently acquired by TeraData), but I haven't really poked them about what the long-term vision is.
