In case you haven’t heard, Peter Eicher, one of the smartest data protection experts Syncsort has ever seen, became a free agent this summer. More specifically, he became a blogging free agent.
With 15+ successful seasons in the computer software industry under his belt, Peter had suitors coming at him from nearly every direction. In fact, there might have been even greater anticipation for Peter’s decision on where to blog than a couple of summers ago when Lebron James held “The Decision” TV special to announce he’d play basketball in Miami.
Never one to draw unnecessary attention to himself, Peter simply issued a statement:
“I had a tough decision to make this summer. After thinking long and hard about it and consulting with my colleagues at Syncsort, I have decided to take my blogging talents to Computerworld and join their guest blog team.”
We’re excited about Peter’s new blogging venture. Have no fear, you can continue to read his industry observations here on the Syncsort blog as well. Peter has promised to not forget where his blogging career all began!
For now, check out Peter’s first official post for his Computerworld blog, Data Protection Insights, on confronting data loss events and how sometimes there are events that go beyond our more manageable and typical “catastrophes.”
For those of you at VMworld next week, don’t be shy about stopping by and meeting Peter at the Syncsort booth (#501).
