ExaGrid, Pure, and Veeam want IT to march to their drumbeat

Red headed stepchild and the missing link

Pure's dedupe and compression gives customers that are in fact a good fit for Pure, sufficient disk savings to where adding additional capacity for online backup is kind of a no-brainer. Why spend the money on Exagrid, which is not so far off from Pure from a cost perspective, and is not evergreen, just to push your backups to a slower disk?

Seems like VMware should have paid the publishing costs on the article and an pushed ExaGrid to the side since it is kind of a prerequisite, unless you are the one shop using MS' hypervisor. Lastly, gotta love that Veeam lists "NetApp" HPE" Cisco" and "Dell EMC" under Solutions > Storage and Server on their website. Purely, a mistake I am sure.
