EMC gives LifeLine consumer storage product a facelift

Beth Pariseau Beth Pariseau Profile: Beth Pariseau

In the course of observing the festivities on NetApp and EMC blogs, I came across a sneaky little blog post/announcement from EMC about its LifeLine consumer storage product. According to The Storage Anarchist (aka Barry Burke), his post will be the only official announcement from EMC about LifeLine 1.1.

I’ve given up on trying to understand software release-numbering, btw. Sometimes it’s a “dot-oh” release for new OS support. Other times it’s a “dot one” for, say, Linux, Mac and NFS support, Active Directory integration, RAID 0, an embedded search engine, and oh, yeah, drive spin-down in a consumer NAS box.

But from Burke’s perspective as a guinea pig user of the product, maybe this release isn’t so significant. At the very least, it hasn’t checked off all the items on his wish list, including integration with Mozy similar to what was announced for Iomega hard drives last week, better TiVo integration and dedupe.

    Thanks for noticing! But to clarify, I didn't say that my blog would be the ONLY announcement, just that it's the only place you can learn about it *for now*. And my blog (as you know) is ANYTHING but "official" ;>) - just consider this post an authorized advanced warning, so to speak...
