In this episode Nick Gold and new co-host Jason Whetstone talk with Gary Watson, the co-founder and CTO of Nexsan — now with the added title of Imation Fellow as Nexsan was acquired by Imation in 2013.
Gary is one of those brilliant technical people who also possesses the gift to communicate eloquently, enthusiastically and informatively with any audience. Listen to this conversation, and you will learn why we at Chesapeake are such fans of Nexsan storage solutions.
The topics discussed range from Nexsan’s history, philosophy and reputation for “minding the details” to the technical highlights of the popular E-series storage, the new NST series and Assureon, the company’s spinning drive-based archive solution.
While certainly utilizing SSDs in Nexsan products, Gary also shares with us his candid thoughts about that particular technology and why he believes spinning drives have a very bright future indeed.
