Advances in storage hardware, software, management, and virtualization technology could never have taken place without the dedication, nay, the fanaticism, of a dedicated group of Storage Superstars.
These talented individuals and teams have spent years or decades developing their expertise and perfecting the art of storing, recovering, archiving, and protecting data. And, more often than not, they have done so without receiving the kind of recognition that their colleagues in sales and marketing or at larger companies have received.
Here, we spotlight 25 of the individuals and teams that looked into the future to design today's storage industry. See the June 2010 issue of CRN for our full list of the 2010 Storage Superstars.
