Storage workshop discussion

If you have followed the weeklies, you will have noticed we're discussing having another storage workshop. The previous one was thought extremely useful, and we want to create a forum for storage admins to come together and share their experiences with Real Data(tm).
Interestingly, we now have (or are close to getting!) more experience with tech previously not used by us. For example, does it improve performance having your DPM db on SSD? Is Hadoop a good option for making use of storage space on WNs?
We already have a rough agenda. There should be lots of sysadmin-friendly coffee-aided pow-wows. Maybe also some projectplanny stuff, like the implications for us of the end of EGEE, the NGI, GridPP4, and suchlike.
Tentatively, think Edinburgh in February.
