Frankenstein of HCI

For goodness sake HPE, stop buying the second or third greatest vendor in the space and just pull the trigger on ONE GREAT acquisition. EMC was smart enough to see the future and stole Data Domain from NetApp at the 11th hour. Even Dell gets it and pays a premium for EMC (and VMware) makes themselves much more relevant against HPE, Cisco, NetApp, etc.

My two cents, grab Rubrik or Cohesity. Spend the premium and challenge the big boys vs. Frankenstein mashups and copying marketing cliches from EMC/Pure Storage from 5 years ago (XtremIO Million Dollar Flash Guarantee) https://corporate.delltechnologies.com/en-us/newsroom/announcements/2014/05/20140505-05.htm
