Re: Leave before it all crashes down
What a load of drivel. Commodity hardware solutions currently don't do even a fraction of the things that real storage solutions can, nor are they able to deliver the same performance without buying almost identical hardware to that of the dedicated storage solution which, by the way, ends up costing pretty much the same in the end.
All of the marketing around these new solutions is based on magical rainbow unicorn farts and it takes very little knowledge to work out where and how it will fail to deliver.
Moving to the cloud is a different story, and those guys use commodity hardware for different reasons to the rest of us.
