I have to reply to Sam Paton post........
As far as I can see the EVA is a pretty solid piece of kit.
Most of the PAS systems in the NHS run on it, without fault or failure!
I know I've put them in!
In Fiber land (which we all know is quicker than iSCSI)
The EVA is much better (stabler) than anything else from anyone else. I've seen (14 years exp)
EMC hods of downtime for firmware upgrades! Iffy code as well!
IBM is rebadged LSI crap!.
HDS is way too expensive...
DELL is too awful to contemplate
If HP want the SWD division to be profitable, it's quite simple really,
either get real when pricing up the kit and /or add extra features and make people want to carry on buying it.
Why not port SANi/Q to the EVA? Just a thought!
