Re: Entertaining discussion
Ah, so you're still in the outdated mindset that flash is just for stuff that needs super high performance so it's basically a drag car and you don't need bells and whistles. Wake up, flash is great for just about every workload these days and the market for general purpose arrays full of flash and benefiting from the performance is way bigger than the market for super fast storage without any real functionality! XtremeIO is lagging behind - Disruptive firmware, 2M IOPS if you take 8 bricks (that isn't even that special when 'disk arrays' full of flash can do 3.2M), poor scalability, has it even got replication yet (if it has, it's not mature). Those 747's with propellers can go just as fast as those jet ones, and carry a load more passengers these days. Stop throwing outdated FUD around and open your eyes.
