Christine Horton shares her views on storage and the channel in this Q&A with the Countdown2StorageExpo team.

Q.  Tell us a bit about yourself and your magazine.

Channel Pro serves the needs of the IT resellers, VARS, systems integrators and distributor partners though up-to-the-minute news, in-depth reviews, industry opinion and analysis. The tone is business rather than techie. I am not a techie.

Q – Tell us a little bit about the titles you write for and their interest in data storage and the channel.

We cover all technologies, and have dedicated storage and security sections. We look at how they can help resellers can sell them – and ultimately make money from them.

Q. What’s hot in the channel this year?

Virtualisation and of course, cloud computing.

Q. What’s hot in IT storage this year?

Automated tiered storage (such as Compellent, the new EMC VNX platforms).
