Re: Nothing special about their tech
It seams like you never used their product and you don't understand how it works (at least you got it wrong) So why are you commenting?
Pure only uses DRAM cache because of a NAND flash problem called read disturb, where if you read the same cell many times you get errors. So Pure uses a very small amount of the controllers DRAM to cache the very highly used data. This is done not to increase performance, but to increase lifetime of the flash media.
Most of the controllers DRAM is used for meta data.
"Pure obviously doesn't have the braintrust. Just business degrees at work here folks" - which company does have the braintrust then and how are their people different from pure's?
Also if "you" invest in pure at the IPO and think they are going to make you a lot of money within the next 2-3 years, then you have not done your homework. Pure is spending a lot of money on RD and building out the company, they need to do so, if they don't then they are dead in the water.
