      Don't think so. There's a LOT of investment in DSSD. Bottom line is that DSSD is more of a rack-scale solution - it's not designed to serve hundreds of hosts, like a VNX or VMAX - and its connectivity is more intimate to the host, so the powers-that-be saw it more in the server than the data-center camp. I'm sure the storage guys will get paid on DSSD... you sell it, you make money...

    Will the functional units now function?
