EDITOR'S NOTE
At the beginning of each year we are compelled to grapple with change. How to re-shape our bodies, build stronger relationships, and improve our work life, rank highest on New Year’s resolution lists. Working in technology, we are accustomed to change. Sometimes sudden, often disruptive, and when we’re lucky, catapulting us into unforeseen rewarding territories. That’s how it is with data management – managing data presents constant challenges to make decisions that deliver the greatest value to your customers. Our two articles this month both drive home, in different ways, the promise of Data Fabric for meeting the changing world of data management.

In this month's lead story, NetApp VP Lee Caswell discusses how to use our Snap-to-Cloud Disaster Recovery Solution Kit to leverage your existing data management expertise and extend it into the cloud. Our second story discusses how oil and gas companies are moving to remote virtual desktops for 3D visualization.

I love this quote about change by Alan Watts:

"The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance."

And so, with that in mind, I plunge into my new role as curator of information related to Data Fabric that we hope provides insight you’ll find interesting and informative.

Companies in the oil and gas industry, such as Apache Corp, are among those beginning deployments of remote 3D virtualization using Schlumberger Petrel in order to improve efficiencies and speed the analysis of seismic data. Tech OnTap recently had the opportunity to interview Brian Casper, Technical Marketing Engineer for End User Computing, and ask a few questions about this new approach for graphics-intensive applications.
