Since when was $60k a deal?

Meanwhile... In the real world shouldn't an entry-level appliance actually provide some performance and ROI for the company? $60k for 6-core per node list price isn't a small business or ROBO cost.

Small companies are embracing the benefits of Storage Spaces and flocking to the Microsoft-Defined DataCenter architecture. It's easy to grab a higher performing appliance with minimal SW (Standard Edition) costs when comparing VM and storage. Just look at these kind of hyper-converged appliances promoted by HGST.

ps... and oh yeah, it was released nearly 2 yrs ago these came out.
