  1. Oh how funny. All of the things EMC screeched about Pure doing they are now doing themselves! - UNSUSTAINABLE they said. Now they do it.
  2. There are a LOT of upset customers out there... The reps were basically going around saying the existing arrays are "NVMe Ready" and you'll get the upgrade later! Not true. The only thing NVMe "ready" on the //m series is the chassis.
  3. Mostly agree. It's not helpful when you're running an XtremIO campaign for a long time, and then an EMC rep comes in and tells them that VxRack is the bee's knees and that's what they should be using. But like anything in sales, you gotta coordinate and be in control.
  4. EMC has at least 9 all flash products and codebases. I'm not sure if this is good for the consumer, or a huge mess to manage.
  5. It is not uncommon for a stock to drop a little when it opens.
  6. Only 29 bucks on Amazon. That's amazing.

    Tegile HA2300 Hybrid Array Review

    Not one mention of ZFS in the entire review!?

    Tegile sounds like the perfect array for you. I (can) sell them and I like them for smaller shops like you. Well worth investigating.
  9. There is also a totally free virtual VNXe now! I really love the VNXe3200. Incredibly powerful array for the size/money, and I don't say that about a lot of EMC products!

    EMC Unveils XtremIO 4.0

    Waiting on confirmation if the 3-to-4 software update is non-disruptive. Also, keep in mind that all of your cluster hardware must match. If you start with a 10tb brick, you can only add 10tb bricks, etc.
  11. Looks much more reasonable than the last 8TB drive we saw with a 3 IOP benchmark.

    I, or anyone, can definitely get you a VNXe3200 w/ 20TB USABLE for WAY less than your budget.
  13. List prices are $124,900 for the 820, $320,000 for the 850 and $575,000 for the 860
