Re: Better research please
Stop the FUD ok? Have you even read their latest earnings report? 500+ Mio in the bank, positive cashflow and you say they have R&D issues. LOL.
You sound like a salty competitor.

Netapp does not offer HCI, how much they try to spin it that way. Its complete separation of storage an compute. So together with Fujitsu its nothing more than a glorified Flexpod.
The only serious play is the Nutanix solution on Fujitsu's servers, with the VSAN ready nodes a distant second.
NetApp is getting more desperate by the day.
Thanks for digging up corpses. Anything more useful to add?
What's wrong with offering a trade in program? I know a former SVT customer or two I might get interested into starting up their failed projects again this way.
Better to have them jump on the Nutanix train then to stay on the HPE Failboat...
Blaming Cisco for having a full cluster outage when 2 nodes fail doesnt make sense. How about having 2 nodes fail in a Simplivity federation? Also down.
Then a 2 node Federation with Simplivity also has a 50 % storage overhead since everything is mirrored between 2 nodes. I could argue that this will never get better due to RAID overheads as well, but Springpath could leverage Erasure coding in the future and bring the RF overhead way down, just like Nutanix can.
Then the overhead. Nice that Simplivity only uses 4vcpu's (due to its special dedup card) how about memory overhead? Simplivity memory overhead is huge and memory is way more important to VM density than CPU is.
Sorry, but Springpath is very bad news to Simplivity.
What makes you so sure these comments are just from Nutanix people? Could be anybody in the storage/SDS space. Atlantis made a lot of enemies with their price drops, even VMware doesnt like them that much since they keep pushing XenServer support.
I think the culture of Atlantis is really messed up if that picture of the cat thing is true. If a CEO pulled that stunt on me, I'd be his eternal enemy and my sole mission in life would be to make him suffer.
Luckily I'm not in vendor land. Sounds like a fun place to be though.
Wow, nice spin that CEO is trying to pull.
Dude, if everything was ok and business as usual, you wouldn't be firing 10% of your workforce. Period.
Not profitable after 10 years? Holy shit.
And then going into the price fights?
Prediction: you won't be making any profit in the future either. Time to let the city sink as it's supposed to.
Dear Mr Pott,
Might it be so that because, in your own words, you are a nobody, that both Nutanix and VMware don't really want to spend valuable marketing $$'s on you performing tests that no sizeable crowd is ever going to read?
It's not like Ferrari sends it's latest model to me for a testdrive, don't they? They send it to Jeremy Clarkson instead.
This is just my polite way of saying that you maybe should tone it down a little?
I'm not saying Nutanix handled the SR thing in a good way, but neither do I like the sad attempts by VMware to try to make themselves the good guys, which they clearly aren't.
And as such I'm not basing my purchases on FUD from any website, or person but just test the stuff myself before any PO leaves my desk.
