Something new in storage...

Something new in storage: Seagate's Kinetic Open Storage.

Key/value pairs on a disk whose interface is TCP/IP on Ethernet, with a supporting protocol.  Real “storage in a cloud”, not a disk array and file system wrapped with a cloud interface. 

This smells revolutionary to me.

Seagate appears to be making the entire stack open, in the hope of creating a ubiquitous standard, much like TCP/IP is today.  If they pull that off, this will be revolutionary.

I want to buy one.  Right now.
