Its a pity.
They had (have) good products but a poor overall strategy. A common shortcoming for a lot of Startups.
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.
HDS takes on EMC, NetApp....

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.

After HP dcoughed up 10B$ for Autonomy, anything is possible....
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? ;)
