Editor's Note
Last month we featured an in-depth article on Data ONTAP® 8 operating in Cluster-Mode, and this month we  bring you a case study on how PeakColo is using Data ONTAP 8 to deliver 100% SLAs.  If you are heading to VMworld in San Francisco, be sure to check out PeakColo's session to learn more about how it built its full-scale enterprise-class cloud using Data ONTAP 8.

Our featured blogger of the month, Tom Mendoza, may not talk about the technical details behind Data ONTAP 8.  What you will find is his perspective on the leadership and culture it took to develop products such as Data ONTAP 8.  You can also find him on Twitter @TomMendozaTalks.
