Who are they?
I once worked for the Pan European Huawei Symantec distributor, so I was always aware that the N8500 was no slouch. In essence it's a Xeon based head running Symantec's Storage Foundation coupled to cheap as chips Huawei 5000 Series controllers and trays..
All I can say is that it's certainly not bad for "Cheap Chinese Tat polished up with a Symantec badge" as one reseller termed it to me..
Perhaps the European market with take this product a little more seriously in the future.
