    Have they given Chris a free array or something?

    Do a search for "Tegile" on the Reg is its pretty much only Chris that writes about them. And it's all amazing press-release level positivity and rainbows.

    Considering that they have binned most of their team in the UK, are looking in poor health compared their rivals over the last couple of years (Tintri, Pure, Nimble) both in deployment figures and commercial numbers, and that in the VAR space they are generally considered to be a few quarters away from being absorbed by Western Digital (Disclaimer - Rumour), I'm amazed that the usually balanced articles from Chris have a tinge of "Officially endorsed by Mellor!" about them :-/

    (Anon because I work for a VAR (no, not a storage vendor) - Yes, we've sold the kit and Customers have been happy. Shame it didn't work out the way of Pure / Nimble, but the business practices we encountered left a lot to be desired)

      "binned most of their team in the UK", is old old news, was several years ago. Why re-spout FUD if you're not a competitor? Don't regurgitate fake news!

        1. It's not FUD, I watched it happen this year. Also, I did not specify a timeline - I was referring to a series of events (of which you have picked on one). I could have also mentioned their marketing dept re-tweeting install photos from 2016, but I didnt think I needed to go that far.

        2. I'm not a competitor - As I said, I work for a VAR.

        3. Western Digital have proved me right:
