HPE buying Nimble Storage...

Nimble's official press release:

https://www.nimblestorage.com/blog/nimble-storage-signs-agreement-to-be-acquired-by-hpe/

and a blurb by Rueters:

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-nimble-storage-m-a-hewlett-packard-idUSKBN16E1JM

Price is 1 Billion USD. (That's $1,000,000,000 USD for the nitpickers in the crowd)

That was... unexpected. I just hope that the service and support doesn't change; They've been extremely good about getting replacement parts to us when stuff breaks, and their analytics are very useful as well- we've used their data to prove to one of our vendors a couple times now that the problems with their application are not storage or IO related, at least not at the appliance or hypervisor level.
