What is Violin Memory's sacked CEO still doing on their board?

mfisch

Everything is negotiable

As is his exit.

Considering the manner of his exit it's hard to imagine him being able to or being allowed to continue effectively as a productive board member.

Without an acceptable golden parachute he may be waiting for an offer of acceptable renumeration. Holding onto his board seat is probably the only chip he has at this point (the other being an extended non-compete).

Just how flash is your enterprise storage rig?

What about the already ditched rust option?

All-flash dropped below enterprise "rust" prices last year .... I took note.

What's next? Memrister and racetrack?

'I still get on the phone for a $5k deal' - NetSuite CEO's anti-SAP mission

Misleading article

What a misleading article.

I can appreciate SaaS -- but this company isn't the disruptive entrant into ERP it's spun as. Compared to salesforce? I can get on the Benioff CRM bandwagon for $65/month/user. Despite being an order of magnitude more economical than Oracle's eBusiness Suite -- NetSuite still smells like Ellison.

While the article in two places seemed to indicate they'd tackle $5k deals -- NetSuite sales told me (in kind enough words) to take a hike unless I have $60,000 to spend in year 1.

Paid Ad? Maybe Nelson meant it's $5,000/hr to get him on the phone.

This is less a critique of NetSuite and moreso the article's spin-factor.
