Wonder if that means Dell really doesn't want to put that platform forward anymore.. though their storage website has a big award picture claiming EQL was #1 in iSCSI for 2013.
I wonder what the point was for all that effort if Gartner comes out and basically says buy whatever you want it doesn't matter, seems like wasted effort. They say agility and cost are important but they don't seem to measure either (maybe "manageability" could include agility but they weight it very low for something they seem to think is important). Maybe they used some random number generators to make the results and created the report in a couple of hours for some easy money.
To me there is certainly a significant rift between a number of the different systems on the list.
