A brand new Violin Memory

Alastair Cooke of Demitasse comments:

Tech Field Day can be an interesting event, not just from the technology side. One of the early questions for Violin Memory was basically: How are you still in business? The answer was that they still have cash and are selling product. The core of their presentation is that this is not the Violin you remember from a couple of years ago. So I’d suggest you take a moment to let go of what you know about Violin. Forget that they were a one product company. Forget that they had a speed demon all flash array with no data services. Forget that their IPO was a disaster. How are you doing? All forgotten? Let’s take a look at the new Violin.

Violin Memory has some pretty impressive ideas that they’ve been talking about lately. Read on to find out what Alastair thinks about their new technology.
