It'll all end in tiers: HP tosses small biz another 3PAR-flavored bone


here is some that I know

Probably a good article for a blog post about what Storage arrays run which operating systems.

I find more storage systems are based on Linux these days.

EMC VNX1(block) - Modified Windows Server 2008 R2 (VNX-File DART is BSD?)

NetApp FreeBSD?

EqualLogic NetBSD

3PAR Debian Linux

Engenio (NetApp E-Series) vxWorks

P2000/MSA1040/2040 - Linux (see below)



version=Linux version (kchaitan@ubuntu) (gcc version 4.3.3 (Sourcery G++ 4.3-234) ) # 1 Tue Jul 15 17:03:18 MDT 2014


Oh, a Wyse guy, eh? Why I oughta make you Nexenta's new CEO


Re: It's a people problem

I also think they have lost touch with the community.

And they seem to be facing QA issues with Nexenta 4.0 way overdue now..


Flash cheaper than disk? 'Customers aren't buying that', says NetApp CEO


NetApp MIdrange Filer Refresh

>>Speaking of NetApp, anyone heard if they are going to refresh the FAS line as EMC is doing with the VNX? Any idea of the new model numbers and what their relative performance is?

Given that Netapp only refreshed the 32XX line with 3220 and 3250 less than 12 months ago. (November 2012) And new 62XX models FAS/V6220, FAS6250 and FAS6290 This Year. (Febuary 2013)

I doubt there is any new midrange Filers coming from Netapp for a while.
