Re: storage bundled is storage gained

Good point, AC.

I don't see much IBM storage running in HP, Dell, Oracle etc. shops, with the exception of SVC, which is there because the customer used to have IBM gear and kept the virtualization layer when they migrated.

IBM storage generally pops up in accts where there's a mainframe or some AIX installed. Even the Lenovo shops I know of have moved to other back-ends.

They probably sell a lot internally for their global services business too, which inflates the numbers.

{{AC because I work for a company that sells lots of different branded storage products.}}
