The shambling zombie corpse of Xiotech
Good Ol' Bill Miller gets out the shovel and unearths X-IO one more time (no one cares or believes the stuff around Axellio) for a new box.
According to El Reg, Axellio was spun off into a different company last year:
X-IO has a feature set that pretty much duplicates what the competitive leaders offer, but does it with a whole lot of extremely proprietary components for very little (if any) improvement. A mid tier Nimble array would routinely beat the top X-IO box in bake offs, which means a Pure array would likely do even better.
If part of the consideration around moving to a new storage platform involve company viability and quality (or even availability) of support, looking at the offerings from Pure Storage and Nimble would be wise - do you think the best engineers stuck with X-IO, or did they all get shuffled over to Axellio while the B players worked on X-IO?
