Hotsos Symposium 2010 — Battle Against Any Guess Is Won

What’s unusual about this session is that it’s not some technical stuff that I usually do but a more conceptual and motivational talk. Could I pull it off? Well, I think it went fairly well in general even though I did identify few rough places and my lack of English language mastering. Might need to work a little bit more on the flow of the presentation. We had quite a few good laughs. Later, people in the next hall were asking about it and Dan was making the jokes on the stage so it must have been loud. Anyway, I think nobody fell asleep and I managed to get people thinking about the topic. I received many “thank you” notes yesterday and compliments on a good session so by the end of the day I was more and more pleased. Thanks everyone for attending and especially big thanks to those of you who brought to my attention examples from their own battles. If you have more to discuss — contact me by email (my last name) {at} pythian.com.

Here are the slides from my presentation at RMOUG 2010. I am not sure how much sense all this will make without my comments. We may do it in a webinar if there is sufficient interest. Regardless I will probably be doing it again at some point in the future.

IBM Storage Fails Too Often, so Let’s Switch to EMC…NOT!

A couple weeks ago I did a short blog post about SAN storage failures and how people are blinded by all the bells and whistles that are supposed to make storage arrays 100% reliable and failsafe. My conclusion was that there is no way to avoid storage failures, and that a better way is to anticipate those failures and be ready to handle them with minimal service impact.
