Re: Translation

You're right, they actually had 96 FC ports in the controllers, how come they were unable to saturate these given the massive SSD and SAS capability behind them? Using flash I always manage to saturate the front end even on longer tests so in a test designed around this end I don't see how they got such an apparently poor result.

I'm also surprised that the primary use-case HP came up with is VOD. Seems a very expensive way to do video to me when NL-SAS has a very similar sequential read speed to SSD but with massively superior cost/TB
