While the raw perf numbers are good it would of been nice to see Avere use a "real" storage system as their mass storage. I can't imagine customers deploying what must be at least $1M of Avere gear in front of some Opensolaris boxes which are probably not HA.

And given that this seems to be in response to a NetApp number, it would of been neat to see Avere use a pair of FAS2000 arrays or perhaps a single FAS3200 array as the back end storage.
only wish SpecSFS forced disclosure of costs of the systems under test.
