So is this a capacity based pricing model?
Am sure it will come out in the wash but is this a move to capacity based licensing?
The article implies a base OS license and then storage cost but we will see.
There was something similar on the NetApp NearStore line which proved reasonably unpopular with customers due to its eye-popping cost. NetApp service providers however may prefer this if it makes the upfront cost lower. However you will clearly pay in the end...you will always pay in the end...
