Storage Assessment, Datalink, and Rick Shangle

Way back in February we had a Datalink “an information storage architect … [who] analyzes, designs, implements, and supports information storage infrastructures that store, protect, and provide continuous access to information” come out to our site to perform a Storage Assessment. During that process they looked not only at the systems we currently have in place, but also at our workflow process and areas where data storage my be limiting our growth and productivity.

The primary consultant on this project was Rick Shangle (who happens to be Mac user), along with Teron Jones their Storage Architect. The firm was very impressed with both individuals and the report they presented is helping us to lay the ground work for where we are heading with our storage infrastructure.

Rick maintains two blogs, the first is one focused on storage technology called Storage Management: Building & Maintaining Powerful Systems the other is his personal blog, simply named rickshangle.com. I found myself reading his personal blog regularly so I’ve also added it to my Blog Roll.
