Agreed. The most likely scenario here is that a. Lynch is a fraudster AND b. HP was stupid. Whether a trumps b or b trumps a, who knows, but I suspect both statements are true.

My uneasiness with this situation is not the fact that AWS banned Parler, they are in their rights to decide who sits on their platform. But what it does highlight is that the cloud providers more than just deciding who sits on their platform, actually decide who exists at all. How many orgs that have gone big on public cloud could survive being thrown off their 'infrastructure' at almost no notice? Pretty much anyone can buy hardware, short of being on a pretty obvious denied parties list, and do what they want with it. The legality of what they do is enforced by the law makers, not the hardware providers. This really highlights the total lack of control companies have with public cloud. You're literally using someone else's computer! If they don't like it (even if it's legal) then they can pull the plug. In the current cancel culture, the reasoning might be fairly vague too.

There are as many dangerous idiots on Twitter as there are on Parler. The fact that 98 messages (what is that even as a %? Must be tiny) were deemed to illegal is being used as an excuse to shut down a platform that is overwhelming inhabited by 'normal' people who happen to occupy the right (not the far right) of the political spectrum. Most of the stuff on there is the same stuff (and largely the same people as the mass exodus didn't happen, people just ended up on both) that you see on other platforms but it just happens to be more of a right wing echo chamber than the left wing echo chamber that is Twitter.

Re: Except that they didn't have anything to do with any of this
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.
Re: End of storage coming
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.
Re: Violin Systems - REDUX
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?
Re: If your only tool is a hammer...
"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!
Re: remember when
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.
