Re: APAC too

Not just firmware .. unexpected power failure also seemed to cause XtremeIO to lose the plot. If you lose the in-memory metadata, on a pair of nodes the whole cluster bricks. I've been told of this happening in multiple unrelated installations, with subsequent offers of bargain basement all flash VMAX's (which are probably a better fit for EPIC in any case) coming from embarrassed EMC account teams desperate to retain the business
