Nuff Said

Re: This Man has the Plan

"Ciscodcloud" - is it me, or does it sound a little fishy?

And didn't Coldplay do something similar to the lanyards at Glastonbury this year?

The TPC-C/SPC-1 storage benchmarks are screwed. You know what we need?

Nuff Said

Re: Is this similar to...

Err... unless Mitrend have significantly changed their business since I was unfortunate enough to work at EMC, no. They analyse specific workloads, this is about creating a homogeneous view over many workloads in order to benchmark, which is very different.

The Quantum of Solace: You've still got tape. Don't forget that

Nuff Said

Or to put it another way...

Quantum lose less money in 12 months than Pure lose in six despite roughly similar revenue.

So therefore Pure are a roaring success while Quantum are in deep doodoo?

EMC energizes Star Trek-style matter-phasing warp field coils, emits VxRack Neutrinos

Nuff Said

The slide deck didn't last long then. Did EMC insist it was taken down in case it made it easier for people to understand what on earth they are doing?

Facebook tells Viz to f**k right off

Re: A once brilliant comic....

Possibly I'm just not sophisticated enough to appreciate your irony, but you do realise "It's not as funny as it used to be" was a running joke in the comic itself for some time?

Xiotech's go-much-faster storage brick

Nuff Said

The text doesn't add up either...

"an IBM DS8700's 786 IOPS, a NetAp FAS 3270A's 2,4309 and an HP/3PAR F400's 1,163 IOPS" - I know IBM's storage doesn't set the world on fire, but 24309 for NetApp?

And is it a "Hybrid", "HYbrid" or "hybrid" ISE? Cos you've called it all 3.

Yours pedantically.
