Re: Keeping up with storage

@aditshar    I recently experienced how important protocols are to accessing stores in an OS X based network.  I was trying to use smb and having all sorts of write issues with it and then I tried afp and all was well. 

Lesson learned.  Using the incorrect protocol for certain NAS's is a big headache.

Re: Keeping up with storage
I guess one of the big game changer in security market is Big Data wherein storage is impacted and concluded by how it is processed and not by capacity.
