back to article Right, HPE. You've eaten your hyperconverged Simplivity breakfast. Will it blend?

    Wonder how many good Simplivity people remain at HP now they have been consumed. Pretty sure I know a few who have moved on. Not sure what happened to the typical 2-year "golden handcuffs" to keep their experience in the team......
