"However, EMC VMAX and VNX customers appear to be endorsing EMC’s point of view instead, possibly because it is easier for them to embrace XtremIO,"

I doubt it as 3PAR includes inbuilt "online import" which provides in array hardware based migration for both the VNX and VMAX platforms, all with minimal setup and online data migration. This makes it effectively easier to go EMC to 3PAR than it is EMC to EMC. I thinks it's more likely many EMC customers just haven't looked beyond the EMC bubble and with Xtremio EMC are still seeding the market with those try now buy later deals.
