Re: Beware break failure.
That joke would have worked much better if you'd have spelled "brake" correctly
D minus - must try harder

Well someone didn't read the article
They're STOPPING growth in the AFA market due to the ridiculous spending by the companies you listed and focussing on the OEM NVMe array market (which none of those listed play in)
Sounds like your post was purely a personal gripe between you and Miller.
Don't Pure use consumer grade MLC ?
There's no way I'm putting enterprise apps on consumer based crap, no matter what software surrounds it - way too much risk for me.
Also, claiming the death of HDDs is almost childish. It's well known that there's not enough fabrication plants in existence to produce enough flash for Tier 1 & 2 - and with no new plants being built, it's impossible for flash to take over the HDD future installs.
I think the Gartner title speaks for itself - they don't consider all-flash-arrays as "General Purpose" and more niche. This contradicts much of their marketing as they say that general purpose markets such as VDI and OLTP are best suited to Flash arrays.
Good to see Gartner see through the marketing hype.
Great idea but when exactly would we get the time to actually get the S7000 working?
You can spout techie features all you want but with 1 hour+ failover and hardly an Active Directory installs working then it'll just be marketing noise.
Oh yeah, that's all you have right now isn't it?
The funny thing about your story is that it contrasts the "old school" Sun with the one that f*cked itself up.
The most recent VP of UK & Ireland actually BOASTED to staff that she'd never travelled on public transport nor been in a Supermarket in her life.
Exactly why Sun sadly dissapeared up its own backside with clowns like that running the show (or attempting to).
To be fair to Sun, from what I can tell and what I've seen, the vast majority are fully paid for.
There were some early seeds but the majority of customers have followed those up with additional purchases.
It's a bit clutching at straws to say they've given away 48PB of storage (which is the current shipped number)
