So I'm sitting in the airport in Boston, going home after a three day stint here learning about the ARX and getting some other stuff done that Joe and I had on our agenda.

I'm coming home with a ton of fodder for how to utilize ARX in your enterprise, both alone and with LTM. Soon you'll be seeing more storage blog posts from me, and that's good news, I really enjoy the storage space - except for that part where a few companies control the high end and good ideas either go through them or die on the vine. But it's not so bad in the NAS space as it is in SAN, so ARX doesn't force us to deal with that problem so much.

We'll be providing you with a steady stream of content in the space, not to hard-sell you or anything, but only offering things that we, as IT workers and managers, would have found a use for in a past life. If a given solution appeals to you, great, go ahead and use it. If it doesn't, that's cool, but you won't know either way unless we start talking about it.

So starting Monday I'll do some "intro to ARX posts to give you an idea of what it can do, and how it does it. From there we'll move into real-world use cases - stuff you might find a solution in, and finally, I'm working on an article about High Availability combining ARX with LTM. There will be more, but that's enough to commit to right now.

Until then, I'm looking forward to heading home, seeing the wife and kids, finding out what the baby has learned that he didn't know when I left.
