Sure Dell EMC is happy having everyone willing to compare with them. Sure it means something.
A tech giant that has stated (or helped to state) many of the standards in the industry, holds tons of patents and has changed the industry paradigm a lot of times (CAS, first enterprise storage with flash drives, true ILM, hybrid cloud...) is really far away from NetApp. NetApp has only a successful one-for-all OS, commodity hardware and cheap prices. I cannot see a clear strategy behind those (except, may be, the last point).
Dell EMC owns VMware, PowerEdge, PowerMax, DataDomain, Isilon, Unity... and much more products, all of them true leaders if we rely in analyst's figures and studies.
Of course Michael Dell has a lot of work to do to consolidate the biggest merge in the tech sector, and revenue (far away from the NetApp revenue if we talk about M$, not percentages) (percentages lies) will be affected somewhat depending of the market perception of the different actions to come. But with VMware in his hands (the cloud solution his competitors sell and in what base their solutions), it is funny to say (I am not saying believe, because I judge you more intelligent than your comment) Dell EMC is losing the race... against NetApp. Simply funny.
Regarding the other points, I assume you are not familiar with the Dell EMC portfolio. Almost all of Dell EMC storage systems are deeply integrated with the public cloud... or they live in the public cloud as SDS. AWS, Google, Azure, integrates the hypervisor, storage (virtual appliances) not only to store; also to protect and allow a completely functional DR DC in the public cloud.
Now someone has discovered (again) NVMe and it comes (again) to be a magic word. You are also forgetting Dell EMC bought DSSD many years ago to get the thing... and to deploy now this technology across the entire portfolio , where applicable (Dell World 2018).
It is not only to have the bigger thing. Is also to know what to do with that.
I recommend you to step back to see all the landscape and learn to project the view ten years forward. Surely you will miss some points, but you will be less hater or believer and become more logic.
I only think NetApp CEO has an enormous mouth and the best strategy to show you are the #1 is become the #1. And not only for your own words.
