So here is plug for his storage blogroll one more time. Access it through his virtualized URL http://tinyurl.com/fzcrq. And in case his virtualization vendor drops off the earth, here is the un-virtualized version of blogroll URL http://storagebloggers.pbwiki.com/Data%20Storage%20Bloggers. ;-)
Also, check out Mario Apicella wondering about small world of storage bloggers in his post Why are storage folks not blogging?. He makes a very good point from customer perspective in response to my comment about low potential of wider readership of storage blogs:
The reality is that purchasing storage often generates transactions that are several orders of magnitude more expensive than buying new servers, for example. People may not look at storage very often but when they do they are in for big money and need good advice.Here is my 'role-reversal' comment from vendor perspective. Potentially large cash inflow per deal encourages storage vendors to put muzzle on their employees ... impact of losing and wining a deal on bottom line is significant enough to discourage free flow of information from rank-and-files. Instead storage blogging is mostly restricted to vendors' upper echelon (See, my post from last year on related topic Does Blogging belong to Upper Echelon only?).
If people are not going to look at storage very often, they are not going to read about it often either resulting in fewer eyeballs for storage blogs.
