The House of Lords really? Don't ya just love largely ceremonial governments bodies trying to show that they actually have a reason to exist.

So much for Compellent

That fact that Dell is using PowerEdge servers and the MD line of storage, which traditionally was the lowest end line of storage and not anywhere near the so-called Enterprise capabilities of the Compellent line, goes to show that Dell has now done to Compellent what it did to EqualLogic before. Seeing as how I worked for the EqualLogic group at Dell when we were politically screwed over by Alan Atkinson and his most favored son group in Minnesota I can't help but laugh hysterically that they finally got what we all knew was going to happen to them eventually.
