StorageMojo was one of the leading blogs on storage. I had the pleasure to meet Robin Harris the owner of StorageMojo at a storage conference and he is a genuine person who wanted to change the storage industry. Robin’s last post is here.
Times have changed and Robin makes a good observation.
Looking back, I started StorageMojo at a propitious time, catching the wave of scale-out storage, SSDs, advanced erasure codes, and cloud, where intelligent commentary was eagerly consumed, and advertising was still a useful adjunct for a one-man consultancy.
