Re: Slowly Disappearing

They've barely got started. They've recently added (and soon to ship) compression. That brings their "effective" cost per GB down in the $0.50/GB range. They are working on dedupe (google it). With an ingest rate of 10 GB/sec it will make for an even better initial primary backup target. If nothing else, they should dominate that space ... never mind the Enterprise space you intimate is "going away." They could hang their hat on backup growth alone if nothing else. And yes, there are a number of larger players that started using them as backup targets as they kick the tires. Large Enterprises don't often swap out their data vendor of choice on a whim. The big player groupthink, trinkety trinkets obtained, etc. slow that process down considerably even with the CFOs beating on them. B^)
