IBM’s Info Infrastructure echoes EMC

Actually a good thing for IBM and their customers

IBM launched a major new storage initiativeByte and Switch summarized it succinctly. 

The message sounds a bit EMCish, specifically their Digital Universe from last year.  It’s not necessarily a bad thing, if IBM can execute in a unique way.  The issue is clearly universal.  If your competitor’s tapped into a core need,  sometimes it pays to swallow your pride and join the ride.  

The “Information Footprint” concept is a nice nod to Green without hitting us over the head with it.

I’m looking forward to see what IBM does with this over the next year or two.
