Re: Cisco might buy NetApp - why?
Simple rule of M&A (vis a vis Cisco/NtAp): you don't have to buy a company if you can get everything you need from them anyway and there is no one else interested in buying them.
Also EMC buying troubled. 300.000 employee HP just to get a server technology is pretty insane.
Really nice graphs. Shows were the storage market is today. Interesting, no Oracle at all on the graph.
Judging by the number of time Nexenta names Pure, they seem to be a bit obsessed with them, at least at a subconscious level. Pure is probably worth checking out then....
Being a silo, will XtremIO be sold by a separate EMC division (like Isilon) or within their "standard" storage offerring.
I'll volunteer for the job....who can I send my CV to? :)
you're asking the right qurstions here. "Big Data" seems to be the buzzword of the moment ("the Cloud" appears to have found its place and form). Lots of Big Data talk, announcements, ideas, shapes, forms and a number of (potential) solutiond - but few real things to show.
According to Mr Nowinski, Isilon has "poor performance". Their storage can stream multiple, tv broadcast quality video files, but that's still - slow? I am curious to learn what is"fast" according to the financial community? ;)
