Juicy tidbits from the data center

Hats off to StorageMojo’s Robin Harris for a comprehensive report with two juicy bits from last week’s Data Center Ventures conference by Dow Jones. The blog put Woven Systems on my radar screen, an early stage startup aiming to create Ethernet switches that would compete with Infiniband in latency. The other bit is rumor mill fodder that David Yen may have one foot out the door at Sun. Harris speculates Yen may not be happy trying to turn around an underperforming storage division at the still-troubled computer company. I would observe, however, David has been a loyal longtime exec that has done great things with the company’s chip and systems groups to date. –rbm
