    They can be persuaded to improve your place in their various analyses if you purchase more of their analytical products and services.

    Somehow the buyers don't seem to see the irony in this.

    Hard to understand some of the metrics they used. Some object storage platforms don't have NFS, etc. Guess what, they don't have Fibre Channel either. Me thinks they missed the point.

    I'm also puzzled how they rated Ceph so lowly. What do they think over 60% of all Openstack deployments use for storage?

      I love Ceph but it has problems scaling. It's the elephant in the room when you talk about Ceph and it's why large, web-scale ops are yanking it out. It also get expensive at scale.

        We have both Cleversafe and community ceph at multiple Petabytes each and I can attest that both have issues scaling. I've used NetApp as well and had performance issues. I'm serious to what scaling issues you have specifically?

        I'm a big fan of open source so I should preface that I am biased towards ceph.
