Re: Not ready yet: EMC to replace old tech in existing storage with DSSD

That's not where I was going. I'm not saying SVC is a bad product. It is actually an excellent product from an architectural perspective, v900 (Flash plus SVC) will easily outperform XtremIO or Pure. I think that is why this EMC product is coming out. They are trying to come up with something that can compete with FlashSystem's raw performance. I didn't mean hampered in terms of performance, that is the one thing that FlashSystem does really well. I meant hampered in the market because SVC's functionality is legacy. Old snap model, little ISV integration, no integrated snap management, limits in snap counts per pair. No dedupe. Slap something like Tintri's functionality in SVC and keep everything else the same, it would be the hottest storage system on the market. It is more a comment of frustration. Update SVC's storage stack and you're great.
