Technically a marvel only for them
VNX2 is a marvel only for EMC.
Multicore for last 3 years on VNX1 was wrongly marketed if this is the first true deployment.
How different it is from old Flare? How does the IO path change if its a ground up design?
If ground up, why not Scale-out? May be another ground up code in next 3 years.
Active/Active controllers for flare luns only. Hardly any customer with flare LUNS!
Block dedupe was considered useless when others have it. So what's big?
Large companies have $$$ to market better. Technically nothing special.
EMC has some good products like Isilon, Datadomain and VMAX capacity tier.
