We had our StorageFest II on Jan. 10 up in NYC. Fantastic event. As Dave Vellante of Wikibon said:

(One of) my big takeaways from the event was: the different levels of the data stack have to talk to one another. We got some Big Data storage clients talking with storage experts at our event, and the results were: Big Data needs storage that serves various needs, not just the same old file and block workloads.
Interested to see how that works out over time.
