How do the two systems compare price-wise? If they cost about the same, and the HP system has a single addressable namespace, then I'd say that EMC is splitting hairs. If the HP system is 4x the cost, then you're really buying four different systems and slapping a manager in front of them.

There are a lot of ways we can slice this information, but how much you pay for what you get in terms of useable capacity and throughput are critical factors.
