First! Coward!

Just two minor corrections.

1- It can support up to 247 PB of storage (but who's quibbling over a few PBs eh?).

2- Currently only 146 GB 15k rpm 2.5" drives are available. Higher capacity 2.5" drives are 10k rpm. Hopefully vendors will announce higher-spinning drives.

I may be wrong, but I thought EMC has not launched FAST v2 yet? What HDT (Dynamic Tiering) does now (block-based automated tiering)?

AC - well.....



Oh dear, today's presentation didn't sync with the technical presentation. 255 PB or 247 PB? That is the question.

But again, I've never seen any USP V systems hitting 247 PB :P.



They appear to have made big improvements on the software side of things, always something they managed to fall down spectacularly on. I never thought I'd see anything as bloated and clunky as EMC ControlCentre - until I had to work with Hitachi Command Suite.

The hardware is never less than spectacular, solid as a rock. Wouldn't get much more than the door of the cabinet for $234,000.
