Re: Except that they didn't have anything to do with any of this
No worries. I'm sure we've all skim read something and got the wrong end of the stick at some point.

What are you on about? They are talking about the Aitken supercomputer that IS from HPE and is doing the sims NOW. Admittedly it probably originated from Cray but they have an HPE badge on them now. Your post seems like an irrelevant bitter rant.
Alexa is just a glorified search engine. Most of us probably google our symptoms trying to self-diagnose anyway. Not always a good idea but we do. Don't even see why this is news, to be honest. It's just another portal for the health paranoid and whether you type something in, or ask Alexa verbally, they will have your data. If you don't like that, don't ask.
You will see almost all companies going hybrid but the cloud reverse claim, in my experience, is largely an urban myth. Many, even large orgs, false started on their cloud journey but are focused on getting it right rather than reversing it. Almost all orgs are in agreement that hybrid will prevail but there is still a cloud first mentality, and it's gathering pace.
They were still losing money on May 21st, and at an increasing rate:
"The company reported first-quarter net losses of $64.3 million, or 29 cents a share, compared with net losses of $57.2 million, or 28 cents a share, in the year-ago period."
I'm pretty sure I have heard them say that they have cash for acquisitions though.
"Hitachi Vantara's VSP is one of three classic big iron arrays; the others being Dell EMC's PowerMax, IBM's DS8000 and Infinidat's Infinibox" ... Infinidat is classic big iron??
Reminds me of Blackadder:
I leapt on the opportunity to test you. I asked if he'd been to one of the great universities: Oxford, Cambridge, Hull. You failed to spot that only two of those are great universities!
That's right! Oxford's a complete dump!
This really is a nonsense table. An array is an array - why do we differentiate between AFA, hybrid and non-AFA when they all basically do the same thing, just some do it faster. They're not different markets these days. These are all general purpose storage arrays. Especially puzzling is the way some vendors are broken down by family but others aren't?
"I believe Q1 is a solid proof point that shows we are doing the right things. But there's still more work to do. We remain focused on executing our strategy, driving HPE Next and continue to introduce innovative products and services our customers are looking for." ... no mention of cost cutting. Poor journalism by The Reg!
Yawn! Have you been in a bubble for a decade? Remember when the world was a different place and anyone other than start ups used to invent stuff. What was the last thing EMC invented? Or NetApp? Which large vendor invents all their own stuff these days? Or doesn't partner with other organisations for requirements? For both tax and timing reasons, acquiring startups is a much better way forward! That's the model that everyone follows these days.
Page doesn't exist! I think you mean
Pure coming from nowhere? AFA's are relatively new and arguably Pure was one of the first to market! And the article says the current 10% is the 3rd period its' share has dropped in a row. Suggests that in recent times, since the other vendors have got their acts together, Pure aren't doing so well?
Still doesn't add up. Each 3U can hold 10 x modules = 183TB raw. But the 1PB effective by your maths would need 20 modules. Either the register or Pure are being a bit misleading. The 1PB effective, based on 5:1 would be in 6U, not 3U.
In fact reading back they are definitely claiming 1PB effective in 3U (ie. 10 modules) so they ARE claiming 10:1 which is very 'optimistic'.
"1PB effective capacity in 3U, 183 TB raw!" ... Hmmmm.
