FalconStor brings in bankers after ELEVEN crummy quarters



Its a pity.

They had (have) good products but a poor overall strategy. A common shortcoming for a lot of Startups.


NetApp and Cisco waggle shrunken ExpressPod at Hitachi and friends


Re: Cisco might buy NetApp - why?

Simple rule of M&A (vis a vis Cisco/NtAp): you don't have to buy a company if you can get everything you need from them anyway and there is no one else interested in buying them.

Also EMC buying troubled. 300.000 employee HP just to get a server technology is pretty insane.

Hitachi Data Systems dons converged system cloak


HDS takes on EMC, NetApp....

....a bit late?

IBM wrestles controls, pulls midrange array sales out of death dive

Germany, Italy

How can Germany be the "nearest competitor" with 911 carriages when Italy has 995?

Falling share price exposes NetApp


Autonomy docet

After HP dcoughed up 10B$ for Autonomy, anything is possible....

Did EMC buy Xtremio to fend off NetApp


Isilon slow?

According to Mr Nowinski, Isilon has "poor performance". Their storage can stream multiple, tv broadcast quality video files, but that's still - slow? I am curious to learn what is"fast" according to the financial community? ;)
