Re: Lock in

Many features, such as sharding data across systems and deduping data create lockin by their nature. Oh - and good luck avoiding lockin with encryption. Even if a vendor wanted to completely avoid lockin, they couldn't - unless they had the first truly open storage software platform (that nobody else would have)
