"What about Whiptail, sorry Invicta? Ciscos own all flash array! Seems a odd link up to me.
That product isn't doing what it needs to do yet. This is a sticky plaster to cover that up in the short-to-medium term. While I've seen and understand the other comments saying this is a Pure-led arrangement, I still suspect if Invicta was up to snuff then Cisco wouldn't be particularly interested in a partnership like this.
If and when Invicta starts to do what Cisco want it to do then partnerships like this with be swept aside. Consequently - and this is a dig at Cisco rather than at Pure - I would suggest that anyone who buys that short term sticky plaster is a little bit mental.
