Will Sun and ZFS take over the enterprise?
Robin Harris at Storagemojo.com has been writing about these efforts for a couple of months now, and I have to give him credit for highlighting what is going on. Enterprise Storage will commoditize, it might be ZFS that leads the way - if Sun can productize and position the product correctly. But not many companies are able to make the transition from a proprietary high margin model to a commodity low margin model. I think one of the consumer electronics companies will end up owning the market for commoditized enterprise storage in a few years time.
