HPE confirms Belfast-based 3PAR engineering office to close


history repeats itself:


Stop trying to make The Machine happen, HPE. It's not going to happen


Bed time stories...

There is a trilogy I read to my kid every night, the machine, memristor and gen-z. Asimov couldn't of done better.

Oh, 3PAR. One moment you're gliding along. The next, you're in the rain as HPE woos Nimble


Re: more than 8 nodes

Any system can perform at 100%...it just depens whats the absolute number translates into. And I can't see that number ever being better on 2 controllers vs 8. Also if Nimble performance were so awesome there would be some public evidence of this in the benchmarking or analyst community....

SolidFire chief talks up secret upcoming hyperconverged system


Re: Solidfire...is it making any revenue?

According to IDC a total of $60M in 2016, that's 0.13% market share, I bet Nimbus has more...

Pure Storage to punt out supersized FlashArray system


Re: Capacity is only effective if you can buy it

You are maybe the only one turning your attention to block scale-out. Solidfire OPEX and overall TCO does not follow the cost curve customer and the industry expect from a flash array, this is way they are mostly irrelevant and will remain so. Regarding Netapp there is not much to say, just look at the company earnings product revenue in constant decline and service and maintenance revenu going up, signs of a dead company. Talking about TCO, just look at Pure 45% overhead and architecture claims, buy 100% HW but use just 50% and maybe get 5:1 or at least until they are force to change their dedup algorithm due to patent infringement....

HPE targets flashy and flash-adjacent types with trio of arrays


Re: awful performance/density

Minus the fact their are not shipping the product; good look selling slideware and quickspecs remember what happened to the last wanna be flash vendor that picked green as their color?

Listen up, VMware admins: If the array won't support it, VVOL won't help you...


Re: If the Array Won't Support it, VVOL with Atlantis USX Can Help You

Sure let's add another layer between the hypervisor and storage...isn't that what SDS is all about in the first place?

Storage BLOG-OFF: HP's Johnson squares up to EMC's Chad Sakac



Hi Chad,

What is EMC position on VNX-F that's is considered as an all flash by EMC, and as such reflected in the various IDC and Gartner reports?What would of been EMC position in the AFA MQ without VNX-F numbers and with disclosing that you shipped a product that could not perform SW upgrades without whipping data of the array? Maybe we are all missing the design to land on NAND persistence, or whatever that means....
