Adding more complex and powerful tools allows we as humans to apply greater leverage; a single human can accomplish much more with a good set of tools than that same human can with just their bare hands. Data management is no different. In this post, Justin Warren looks at the tools NetApp has created for that task with NetApp Fabric Orchestrator.
We weren’t wrong to want a data warehouse, it’s just that the world around us continued to change, and what was once an appropriate and useful choice became… well, less so.

But the company is starting to make it happen, with real data services, orchestration, and management solutions coming to market.
Here’s a live blog from Glenn Dekhayser to get you up to speed on everything announced on the Day 1 NetApp Insight Keynote.
