User had no webcam or mic, complained vid conference didn’t work


Working as the sole IT support in the 1980's at the local college I was packing up for the end of the day when the Librarian burst in to the office looking for 'IT'.

It turned out there was a bag in the library - and it was ticking. Turns out that part of my support role was also potential bomb disposal. Wish I'd asked for more money. Eager fool in my early 20's that I was, I did take a look; and yes it was a clock.

The only way is down for NetApp, HPE and IBM storage – study


Relatively pointless it seems. Bit unfair pulling out HPE as the casualty in 'placing', when you look at the (backwards!) graphs you can see that they actually survive best of all the vendors in terms of %age drop. No doubt down to the all flash 3PAR still being needed for the top tier local stuff.

Don't rule out local object as a disruptor either. I'm seeing solutions at the large-scale end that are better priced than current cloud storage offerings.
