My older son asked me to watch "The Hunt for Red October", starring Sean Connery, with him earlier this week, so I did. Now I realize this is not exactly breaking news, seeing as how the movie was originally released in 1990, but I thought it was quite good and I give it my seal of approval as an excellent action movie to watch. I did not see the movie when it first came out - at the time I was busy in Endicott NY working in the group that was nuturing a set of new products, one of which later became ADSM, and was eventually renamed as TSM (Tivoli Storage Manager). Audience participation time: if you can tell me the name it had prior to ADSM I will really be impressed!
Anyway, the point is that sometimes things that started years back turn out to be still quite powerful. 30-some years on TSM is still the best backup product in the marketplace, 26 years after Goldfinger (in my opinion, the best Bond film of all time) Sean Connery was still a great actor, and after almost 10 years (it debuted in 2005) DS8000 is still top dog in the enterprise disk storage space. Here is a link to a good infographic (masterfully created by my colleague Allen Marin) on the DS8000. Please enjoy!
