NetApp IT Podcast: Rethinking the Skillsets of Storage Engineering Admins

Mary Jo LeBlanc

At the 2019 NetApp® INSIGHT® conference in Las Vegas, Senior Manager of Storage Engineering Eduardo Rivera sat down with Cloud Editor in Chief Steve Mudd to discuss modern approaches and processes to managing storage. In this podcast, Eduardo debunks the myth that storage administrators are no longer needed as cloud and automation become more prevalent.

Eduardo coaches his storage team members to rethink their roles as hybrid cloud engineers who provide on-demand storage using automation, NetApp® Trident, and Kubernetes. He encourages his team to become familiar with―not necessarily experts on—Python, Ansible, Git, and APIs. His advice is to learn new skills that prepare for and shape the future.

Check out the podcast, Traditional & Modern Approaches & Processes to Managing Storage, to learn more about Eduardo's perspective and how his experience in engineering storage at NetApp shapes the future of the industry.
