Re: all down to $/GB
Always comes down to money.. funny how that works. The tiers are considerably cheaper as you go down on $/GB, if they weren't ... there would be no need for them. I've been in massive shops with VTL and there is always tape in there somewhere. Financially, you'd go broke with multi-PB and keeping all those backups on de-duped HDD. I don't know how many times I've argued, if a tier is a factor of 5 or more in cost cheaper, that tier will be around for quite some time. Especially with database archiving solutions. The stale data resides on a cheaper tier. Makes no sense to keep that on a more expensive tier.
"LaBar and his colleagues report that testosterone levels among women and Democrats in the trial were unaffected"
Shouldn't that be "immeasurable" or perhaps "tiny like their kit"?
Gee whiz... what's with you guys? You get to the Rog and fall in line to talk up Sun?
Is one of the sign-ons to be a sun fanboy?
"The collection of all other vendors grew their total revenue at 38.5 percent, more than twice the market rate. We might possibly assume from that surprisingly high growth rate that vendors such as 3Par, Compellent, Data Domain, and Pillar are making good progress at the expense of all other vendors except Sun and NetApp."
Why not just go and see what fellow writers say? Chuck for instance?
The big market share gainer according to Gartner?
That would be "other" category at 2.3%, meaning more and more of the pie is going to the newer entrants -- collectively, that is. To me, this means that the market still has plenty of room for innovation from smaller vendors.
So there you have it. Those fast growers are now 2.3% of market share. Big whoop.
They certainly aren't eating into the others.
Sun? Irrelevant. Please lay off the Sun koolaid. Their stock tells you all you need to know about how far they've fallen.
