Brian Henderson has been working in the storage space since 1996 in roles ranging from support to engineering to his current technical consulting role. He talks to both large and small businesses who wish to take advantage of new infrastructure technologies offered by EMC and related software providers. Since about 1998, he has been recommending ways to enhance the deployment of Microsoft’s enterprise server software products like Exchange, SQL, and SharePoint.
Why did I name the blog Power Windows?
Well, the windows part is pretty obvious. I have been working with Microsoft products just about forever it seems, and on a professional level for about the past ten. I know a fair amount about how the company works and operates.
I added the word “power” because I work for EMC and we sell the world’s best storage hardware and software (market leaders and all that). When you see a Windows box connected to an EMC SAN it’s like having Power Windows :)
Also power windows were a significant technological advancement for a car – having a button sure beats having to roll up windows the old way. Same with a SAN – once you understand this technology, going back to a bunch of servers / JBOD is really old fashioned.
I love music. The Canadian “power trio” Rush is my favorite band of all time (people love em or hate em), and “Power Windows” happens to be one of their albums (not their best in my opinion, but a decent one).
Please feel free to comment here or ask questions. I use the WordPress trust-once system which means I only moderate your first post. After that, it’s fair game, and I feel it’s important to not delete a thing unless it’s spam related to watches or drugs or something else dirty.
