Oh dear, IBM. Storage isn't looking like a cash cow any more, is it?

I could have sold you on it :). I used to sell IBM storage. XIV was fun to sell in its day. You just had to demo it. Provision a LUN in VMAX, now provision it in XIV... how many frames do you want to buy? IBM really has not kept it up to date with the Flash era. I agree that IBM really should have done better with it. I think a bunch of people just thought IBM storage = old stuff (because IBM storage did = old stuff, prior to XIV) and didn't want to hear it. Tintri is probably the current equivalent to XIV.... where people just see the demo and are floored.
