Re: Seriously? An IBM x86 solution being a threat to anyone?

I guess you didn't read my comment where the key words are sell and execute, not x86, so I will summarize it for you. I understand that the solution uses IBM Storage and Cisco x86 servers. Duh, IBM no longer has x86 servers. My point was that someone at IBM has to sell it and IBM sucks at marketing, selling and executing on these types of x86 solutions even if it is Cisco who is the x86 part of the solution and not IBM. Partners are not going to sell this because they have been burned by to many IBM solutions like this in the past. Also partners sell what they know and this is new, so they won't be pushing it any time soon. Cisco reps aren't going to sell this because they don't sell storage, so that leaves it to IBM to sell this x86 solution product themselves. Which again, they suck at. My point again is Seriously? An IBM x86 solution being a threat to anyone? Not.
